Last time we talked about the watch movement. Now we will share the knicks knacks of watch complications and style.
Basic wristwatch tells you the time. And many wristwatches come with features that also display the date or even the phase of the moon. These little extras on wristwatches are called “complications.”
Besides calendars or moon phases, other complications include alarms, power reserve indicators, and repeaters (a feature that chimes the hour and minutes on your watch at the press of a button). Then there’s the chronograph. A separate and independent time system which serves as a stopwatch. Most chronographs consist of three small dials (also called sub-dials) within the main dial of the watch. On the side of the watch’s case, you’ll usually find two buttons: the top button starts/stops the chronograph, while the bottom button resets it.
On some watches, a chronograph is paired with a tachymeter — a scale inscribed around the rim of a watch. Using the chronograph and tachymeter together allows a user to calculate all sorts of things like speed, distance traveled, or fuel consumption.
Men’s Watch Style
There’s a lot of men’s watches styles. Sporty, elegant, classic etc. And you need guidelines to choose the perfect style for you. When it comes to stylish men’s wristwatches, there are basically three types: dress, field, and casual. We’ve compiled dossiers on each one.
As the name implies, you wear a dress watch for dressier, more formal occasions like with a business suit. But you can also wear a dress watch with everything on down to sharp casual. It won’t pair well with a t-shirt and jeans.
Field watches are quite versatile and can be worn on all kinds of adventures as well as for everyday casual wear or even business casual. So everything from jeans and a t-shirt, to a sports coat and khakis. For men, especially younger guys, who don’t get dressed up in a suit very often, a field watch is probably your best bet; its simple, rugged style may best match your personality and lifestyle.
