Watches – Casual Or Glamor Design?

By Paul James Harrison

Long gone are the times when watches were simple time telling instruments. Today, they have become a part of our lifestyle and as such, they make statements about our personality or social status. Because of this, wearing the right watch for the right occasion may prove a challenge, even for those of us with a keen sense of accessorizing. A distinction which all of us probably had to make when buying a new watch was between several design types – elegant, casual or total glamor. Which one is better?

As you suspect already, there is no better watch to wear – only the watch that suits your personality, that makes you feel conformable with what is says about you and of course, the watch which doesn’t fall behind. Precise time telling watches are nowadays common, so for most of us, the matter of design is more pressing.

Designers walk a broad path between conservative and innovative in terms of watch design. Casual watches fall somewhere in between, more towards conservative with a touch of everyday use, while glamor watch-designs tend towards being a status or fashion statement before anything else. Casual designs can be distinguished first of all by the presence of several smaller dials within the principal dial. The smaller dials can tell almost everything, from where North is to atmospheric pressure or time in several other cities around the globe.

Other elements are there to make a difference between casual and glamor too, but they may prove harder interpreted one way or another, as they are factor of fashion most of the time. For instance, the material of the wrist band. Some would argue that metal wrist bands betray a utilitarian – casual approach, while others may highlight that a gold wrist band while still made of metal, it may also be a sign of distinction or even a glamorous fashion statement.

The line between glamor and kitsch is easily crossed nowadays, so unless you’re sure enough about your choice and are positive that an apparently glamorous acquisition will not embarrass you in front of friends or partners, it is recommended to stick to the classics.
