The must-have watches for every occasion

A classic timepiece is the ultimate finishing touch to any outfit. Regardless of whether you’re attending a formal corporate event or unwinding on holiday, the right watch can take your attire to the next level.

Finding the right one, however, is a difficult task in itself, and every occasion warrants a different watch to go with it. That’s why we’ve teamed up with the luxury watch case providers over at the Case Farm, to help you find an appropriate watch for every occasion.

Watches to wear to a wedding

When attending a wedding, you’ll want to dress to impress, but you don’t want to steal the happy couple’s shine. You’ll want to opt for a stylish yet simple timepiece to pull your wedding outfit together.

For men, we suggest a classic gold plated watch from Hugo Boss. This offers a classic look with a hint of gold plated hardware, a shade that will go with any suit colour or style.

For the ladies, the medium-sized Tank Anglaise watch from Cartier provides just the right amount of sparkle to complement your outfit, all whilst not being so glitzy that it draws too much attention.

Casual watches

Every watch-lover should have at least one formal and one casual watch in their collection, however, choosing the right make and model can be a difficult task.

If you’re looking to wear your casual watch regularly, you’ll need something that’s lightweight, comfortable and not too fussy. That’s why the classic Cornwall watch from Daniel Wellington is the perfect choice for any gentleman about town, due to its sleek face and secure and comfortable NATO strap.

Watches to wear to work

Similarly to your casual watch, your work watch will need to be comfortable to wear and fuss-free, as you’ll be wearing it for the majority of the day. However, you can up the ante when it comes to style if you want to catch the eye of your boss or any clients in meetings.

For men who want something simple yet stylish, opt for the Gucci GG2570 watch. The silver hardware will work well with all dress codes, and the dark face provides a sharp contrast that will attract all eyes.
