Minimalist Watch Styles for Modern Sophistication

The popularity of minimalist fashion tells us that an article of clothing or accessory does not need to be ornate or flashy to be stylish. Minimalist fashion emphasizes nominal decoration and patterning, sparing use of color, and simple design. While that may, at first, sound boring, minimalist styles are often quite striking in their austerity. Take a look at some of our favorites.

w1The Longines La Grande Classique 18kt White Gold Mens Luxury Swiss Watch is a departure from the typical, ornate fashion of Longine Watches. The simplicity of this elegant watch lies in the thin lines of the hands and face. The crocodile leather strap adds a bit of flare to this otherwise minimalist timepiece.

 

 

w2This Rado Ceramica XL Jubilee Black Ceramic Men’s Dress Watch brings an ultra modern edge to minimalism with its blocky design. The face of the watch itself is tiny, almost an afterthought to the dominant black wrist strap. The black diamond face adds an element of sophistication, making this watch suitable for both casual and business attire.

 

 

w3The Frederique Constant Slim Line Automatic 18kt Rose Gold Mens Luxury Strap Watch, similar to the Longines La Grande, presents with a classic look that has been updated with a minimalist style. The thin and simple hand indicators and hour markers modernize this elegant piece.

And, for the ladies, this Tiffany and Co. Tesoro Stainless Steel Women’s Watch is a major simplification of typical, ornate women’s watches. No bling or jewels here, the simple but stylish wristband frames the trimmed down face and hand indicators, creating a chic look for women. This timepiece looks great as an accessory to business or semi-formal attire.

 

Though simple in design, minimalist watch styles exude elegance and sophistication. These timepieces match well with many types of attire and are popular for both men and women. Find your minimalist watch style today!

  • Golf Lessons. The ability to play golf–and play well–is both a hobby and a business skill across a variety of professions. Whether he’s a rookie or a seasoned golfer, it’s never a bad idea to brush up one’s skills on the green.
  • Cufflinks. These versatile accessories aren’t just for formal occasions. In fact, cufflinks are being worn more and more frequently as an accent to an otherwise casual ensemble. Browse our selection of discounted designer cufflinks for the fashionable father in your life.
  • Cologne. Do you know his special brand? Men tend to stick to one cologne–and use a lot of it–so this is one gift that won’t go to waste. Dads will be sure to appreciate this practical and thoughtful present.
  • Grill Tools. Father’s Day is conveniently situated at the peak of barbecue season, and dads can’t wait to fire up the grill. This gift might be put to use as soon as it’s opened if a poolside barbecue is part of your Father’s Day tradition.

Blue is for Beach

Memorial Day weekend is here, which means the kick off of beach season.  Now is the time to sit back under the sun and relish in the glory of the summer months. While it’s important to keep your watch away from water and sand, blue tones can carry the feel of the beach from wherever you are.

When it comes to a blue watch for the summer, it’s important to keep it as light and airy as possible. Here are some options that we love.

This color blue is great to wear against a bright yellow bathing suit. Just watch out and be sure you don’t get sand or water in your watch.  Watch care is highly important at the beach. Always keep your watch tucked away in a safe place.

This watch would be great with a flowing white dress. We’re imagining something you can dance and swirl around in.

This watch is a bit bulkier and better suited for a shorts and t-shirt style. Perfect for nights spent walking around, enjoying the breeze.

 

The World in Color

Colors are beginning to pop up everywhere. Have you seen them? Take a good look around you and you’ll begin to notice; they’re everywhere!

When Spring comes in, it’s a sure sign that the world is about to become a lot more colorful.

First off, Mother Nature graces us with beautiful tree-lined streets that shower pink petals all over you as you walk. It’s almost like a fairy tale! (If you don’t have allergies, that is. Then those innocent-looking pink buds are basically a full-blown nightmare)

New graffiti goes up in the most unexpected places as the weather warms up and people have free time to spend outside. Graffiti is illegal, but you’ve got to admit, sometimes it’s beautifully colorful!

Another sort of artwork you’ll notice if you pay careful attention are the colorful chalk drawings and abandoned hopscotch games displayed on sidewalks everywhere… Aaah the carefree days of summer when you’re a kid…

If you walk into the mall to browse the latest styles in search of an item or two to update your spring wardrobe with, you’ll notice loads of clothes and accessories in soft pastel hues and eye-popping neons. Colorful clothing is a trademark of Spring. After months in black sweaters and boots, throwing some color on is so refreshing and also, an instant mood-booster!

With all this color inspiration surrounding us, we were inspired to join in and add our own color to the season :)
