I’m all for technology advancing the world we live in, I really am. But when it starts to encroach on the world of fashion I rarely see a positive outcome. And for all Apple’s design capabilities, there was just no way they could make a watch which makes you look like anything more than a nerd, and I don’t mean that in a good way.
The Apple watch, and the other smart watches it spawned into the market just aren’t cool, there is just no other way to say it.
If you are in the market for a watch, then don’t be tempted by technology, here are 4 far cooler watch styles to consider, and none of them will need charging overnight!
A classic look in both male and female styles the chronograph has multiple dials which keep the clock ticking but also add an air of classic style to the watch face. Regardless of the strap style, the chronograph face is a classic style and far better than a screen of apps!
An advance on the chronograph and probably one more for the men than the ladies, the military watch style is an advancement on the chronograph and generally comes with a bigger face and more dials. It says rugged, manly, prepared.
This has quietly become a classic watch having stood the test of time and never really gone out of fashion. Less formal than a military or chronograph and great for every day wear the G-shock is equally suitable for a man or a woman as it comes in different sizes and shapes.
The Pocket Watch
Alternative is cool. And what could be more alternative than taking a step back in time and donning a pocket watch as your timepiece of choice? It wouldn’t be at home in the pocket of your jeans and so only really suitable for more formal occasions unless you wear a suit every day. But you wont fail to raise a comment if people see you pulling this out of your pocket to tell the time.
Watches can be a great investment from both a fashion and a monetary perspective. And if you were to go shopping for pre-owned watches, then you can grab yourself a serious bargain. Just don’t go for the smart watch option, as they are seriously uncool!
