Building a Watch Wardrobe Means Diversity

Building a Watch Wardrobe Means Diversity

Annena Sorenson

With the holidays here, you are most likely contemplating the perfect gift — or maybe even a self purchase. We know that a watch is a great, timeless investment — one that can hold its value for years to come.

While our customers often have varying degrees of passion about watches, some have gotten hooked on the singular statement a watch can make, and have purchased multiple timepieces — making him or her a "collector" of sorts. We are often asked how many watches one needs to have to be considered a collector, or to have a true watch wardrobe. The thing is, it is less about the number of watches you own and more about what types of watches you own that help in building a watch wardrobe.

Generally, most people opt for either a classic work-type watch as their first timepiece, or a sportier watch. These are often the most versatile, and can go from day to night to weekend without a hiccup. It is safe to say that everyone building a wardrobe should have at least one classic dress watch perfect for work, and one sportier, rugged watch that can go out hiking or skiing on weekends.

From there, you build up. Women may want a diamond or gemstone watch for elegant evenings, especially if they do a lot of socializing. They also may want to add a fashion-forward watch — one that makes a color or artistic statement. Other genres of watches also appeal to both sexes, but men often find themselves attracted to pilot or military-inspired watches and there is an entire segment of brands that offer such timepieces. This is where a person's real likes or dislikes, interests or hobbies come into play. There are car-inspired watches, colorful watches, three-dimensional space-age looking watches and so much more.

We advise you, if searching for a watch as a self-purchase or a gift, to consider what styles you already own, what is missing from your collection (or that of the person you are buying for) and what excites you in terms of look and style. The key to having a watch wardrobe is wearing the watches, and if you don't love them, you won't wear them. So buy what you like. We invite you to stop in any time to take a long look at what we have to offer in all watch genres.
