There are certain wardrobe staples that every stylish man needs to own: a classic blue blazer, the perfect dress shoe, a well-tailored suit – these are all givens. But as we’ve stated many a time before, no ensemble is truly complete without the finishing touches that elevate an outfit to refinement. More often than not, the final piece of the sartorial puzzle is a well chosen wrist watch.
A timepiece says a lot about its wearer, and we’re here to make sure you’re making the right statement. Join us in our series outlining the best choices for a fully rounded watch wardrobe with the timepieces that every man should own.
Earlier today, we told you about Dolce & Gabbana’s newest foray into men’s timepieces. The fashion house had previously only issued mass produced fashion watches through their D&G line, but as Stefano Gabbana told WWD, the brand knew it was missing something.
That special element was fine timepieces. Dolce and Gabbana’s vast and varied brand can provide nearly everything a man should own for a well rounded wardrobe,but not a timepiece – until now. The blending of Swiss movements and a Couture name create a hybrid between accessory watch and luxury watch that holds a special place in our compendium of watches ever man should own: the Fashion Watch.
The brand name adds style & personality at a fraction of the price of putting your own spin on things with, say, a unique Ulysse Nardin. You can use this watch to have fun, make a fashion statement that won’t injure your bank statement.
This Fendi two tone 900G is another perfect example.
We like the minimalist dial of this Fendi watch, that miniscule date window, and the way it contrasts with the relatively bold gold Roman Numeral bezel.
A clean, but airy link bracelet in stainless steel is a masculine way to add texture (but the high polish material is more dressy than a cool textured rubber or leather strap).
A thin case size lets this Fendi watch keep a low profile and again lets those Roman Numerals steal the spotlight. Too many busy elements on a fashion watch make it look cheap – not trendy. This 900G strikes the perfect balance.
