Picture this: you are invited to a work event, and it has a dress code. You mentally assess your inventory of clothes. There’s this black and red number that you’ve always wanted to wear. The work event is the right place to wear it. But how about accessories?
Well, you’re in for luck, because in this article, we’ve collated the best watches for lifestyle and fashion you can buy to impress your work bosses and clients. From quartz to automatic timepieces, even smartwatches, the options you have when it comes to timepieces that are stylish and appropriate are endless. We’ve narrowed them down to these four gorgeous pieces:
Every watch connoisseur will tell you that Omega is the brand to buy when you want to get your boss’s and client’s attention. The Swiss brand is one of the top three watch brands in the world. If you are wearing an Omega watch, it instantly screams polished, sensible, and down to earth. Trust us when we say this – you can never go wrong with an Omega.
In fact, in China, which is one of the top consumers of luxury goods on the planet, more and more people, either emerging young adults or business people in their prime, look for Omega for their everyday watch. Not only is it the watch brand to have when you have the money, but it will also turn heads not only of watch connoisseurs but the right people as well. So you’re hitting two birds with one stone.
The Omega Constellation is the right timepiece if you want to make the right impression while keeping your outfit together. Word of caution, though: Omega watch price can vary depending on your region. You’ll need to book an appointment with your nearest Omega store or dealer days before.
Daniel Wellington Petite Melrose
Daniel Wellington may have the reputation of being the “social media” watch brand with the number of celebrities and influencers in its payroll, but there’s something to be said about how the company – while aggressive in marketing their timepieces – actually makes great watches. The Petite Melrose in Rose Gold is a stylish piece that’s perfect to wear on any occasion!
With a big watch face, gold-plated bezel, and bracelet, the Petite Melrose is perfect to pair with a little black dress. It’s bold yet subtle enough that it will be seen but won’t take away the limelight from you. What’s great about the watch is that you can readily get it anywhere, so if you’re particularly in a bind, you can just go to your nearest mall and voila – you have something pretty to accessorize your get-up!
Seiko Presage SSA810J1
If you want something that’s out of the ordinary, and can potentially become a conversation starter, get the Seiko Presage SSA810J1. If you haven’t heard of Seiko before, that’s because the Japanese brand has yet to reach the level of notoriety it has in Asia in Western countries. But for watch enthusiasts, Seiko, as a brand, is already legendary on its own.
The best thing about Seiko is that their watches are packed full off features without the astronomical prices of Swiss-made timepieces. The SSA810J1 is a great-looking watch, with an automatic movement with manual-winding capacity. The dial, or the watch face, is outfitted with Swarovski crystals, and the two-tone clasp in stainless steel and rose gold is nothing short of beautiful.
Talk about a beautiful watch. The Bvlgari Serpenti is a unique-looking, conceptual, and high-fashion watch that defies belief. In its latest iteration, the Serpenti’s dial is reimagined as a snakehead, with the watch’s bracelet snaking on your wrist. The band material is rose gold, so you won’t have to worry about how it will look on your skin tone. Rose gold goes well with most complexions.
The watch’s diameter is on the smaller side at 35mm, and the movement inside is Swiss quartz technology. With this watch, you are not paying for the movement; it’s on how the watch in itself doubles as a piece of jewelry. Perfect for the company’s biggest annual event.
Always remember that you don’t have to shell out hundreds or even thousands of dollars to get an expensive-looking, and conversation-starter watch these days. What you need instead is taste and style to weed out tacky alternatives that will scream “trying too hard.” Get one or two of the options above, and you’ll never have to worry about lacking in timepieces again!
