It is arguable that in recent years watches have declined in popularity, largely due to technological advances making accessibility to time effortless. This is a shame, as what was once an essential accessory for all men has lots its status in many wardrobes.
On the other hand, by eliminating the practical side to a timepiece, the choice to wear a watch is a style conscious one – ultimately, it has become a piece of male jewellery.
With your wrist choice being a fashion orientated one, you should of course be paying attention to detail to both style of watch and strap type. Just like every other area of male clothing, not every watch suits every man – so a great amount of thought and consideration should be put into this accessory.
This Emporio Armani AR2032 Watch showcased below is a slim dress watch, complete with a slender black leather strap. This type of design is often better suited to a slimmer wrist and is an understated choice – it is not as bulky or flash as larger watch faces/styles.
The face itself is simplistic, utilising roman numerals for the hours and sixty small lines to indicate minutes – and what better icon to display your 12 o’clock position than the illustrious Armani logo.
An additional feature of the strap is the pin buckle fastening, which allows you to adjust to your wrist size.
