An Interchangable Timepiece: Detail & Functionality

For its detail, and functionality, a wristwatch is an essential piece in menswear. When selecting a wristwatch for purchase, most say to purchase one that is appropriate for any event or season, and I agree. Just like we purchase clothing according to our peculiar tastes, procuring a wristwatch is no different. I believe wristwatches should reflect our personalities, and lifestyles in every detail possible. For me, sophisticated simplicity is my goal when it comes to the items I own so, I opt for neutral, versatile colors, and a stable fit as it pertains to wristwatches. An example is the wristwatch I am featuring in the photos above.

Wristwatch plates in silver, gold, white, or off white are great choices for their versatility, and monotony. I like to encourage my colleagues to keep the classic, simplistic theme going by making sure bands are procured in foundational pieces like a black or brown leather band.

Luckily, for those of us who would like to own multiple timepieces with various bands without hitting pay death, there are wristwatch brands like Shore Projects featuring the contemporary transposable band technique that allows for band swapping at any second of the day or night.

A refined man relishes in the detailed process of handpicking the proper timepiece – whether it’s for a quick run to the grocery store, a business meeting, or tennis at the country club. There is a certain amount of contentment in procuring a well-made wristwatch with an adaptable quality, without breaking the bank.
