Truly timeless and supremely stylish, a watch is still one of the ultimate accessories you can wear. Invest in the right timepiece and it’ll enhance every outfit, no matter if you’re enjoying a picnic in the park, working hard in the office, or heading out for drinks.
With so many different styles available, whether you’re looking for yourself or trying to find the perfect Henry London watch for your partner, the selection can be a bit overwhelming. Luckily, we’ve done the hard work for you and put together this handy guide.
Your unique style
We’re all completely different and have our own unique tastes, so why should your watch be any different? When it comes to selecting your watch, think about what makes you, you. What sort of styles do you usually wear? What’s your favourite colour? Are you a gold or silver girl? And do you prefer modern or traditional watches? Answering these questions will help you find the perfect design.
Love the designer goods but can’t justify the price tags? We share our tips to getting luxury fashion, for less.
Materials and tones
Watches come in a massive selection of materials, from supple and luxurious leather, to more unusual inlaid wood styles. So, how do you decide on material? Think about the jewellery you currently have and the pieces that get the most wear, as the style of these could provide inspiration. Additionally, it’s worthwhile considering your lifestyle, as if you want to wear your watch while playing sports, you may need something a little more hardwearing.
Sizing is key
Do you like making a statement with your jewellery, or are you someone who prefers dainty accessories? When searching for your perfect watch, sizing is hugely important. You’ll find loads of fashion-forward and on-trend watches with large faces, as well as smaller and sleeker options. Narrow-down sizing and it could help to make your watch search a whole lot easier – you can thank us later.
Embellishments and details
Are you all about cool crystal embellishments and dazzling diamond detailing? Or do you prefer simple, sophisticated and understated styles? Either way, you’ll be spoilt for choice. From watches with pearl inlay and gemstone details, to designs with plain leather straps and blank faces, no matter your price point or style preferences, you can find the perfect one for you.
Pick your movement
A watch is just a watch, right? Actually, no. You can buy two different types of watch: quartz and mechanical. Which one you choose will depend both on your budget and your style. What’s the difference? Well, quartz use a quartz crystal to ensure accurate time. These can be found at different prices and are some of the most popular options. While mechanical styles use a complex clockwork system and usually cost a lot more.
