A man’s watch can speak volumes about him. HIs clothes and shoes, and even the haircut he sports can give you a sneak peek into his personal sense of style, but it is his watch that reveals his personality and taste.
Luxury watches can be expensive; so if you’re going to spend moolah on making one yours, you want to make sure that it truly reflects you. You can think of them as style statements, status symbols, or a collectors’ item. There’s no doubt that a great watch fits all these descriptions. Few would disagree if I said that finding the perfect luxe watch can be a challenging task. However, with careful attention to some of the important aspects, you will be able to find a watch that suits your taste. For starters, you may want to set the ostentatious pieces aside and focus more on the understated and sophisticated ones.

The bold round shape is juxtaposed with slim and pointed hands, and all this is cosseted under sapphire crystal.

Tissot T Sport PRS 516 Automatic Gent
Model No: T044.430.21.041.00
The one Swiss watch brand on every man’s wish list is Tissot. This probably has to do with its technological brilliance and design. Their watches top not only the looks department, also in their performance. Tissot’s watches are known to be sturdy and sporty, while being chic enough to be worn to any occasion. This piece is characterized by its striking good looks as well. It has a stainless steel body which is contrasted by the intense blue dial. The round case is 42mm in size.

It is said that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. While some may think that an inconspicuous watch will not be as impactful as a flamboyant one, the truth is far from that. Whether it is an important meeting, a job interview, a wedding, or a funeral, you may or may not wear a watch. However, if you do choose to wear one, it better fit the occasion. This is where simplicity and minimalism play a big part. Watches that speak gently will always be preferred over those that scream harshly.
