Delving into the world of haute horology is exciting, engaging, — as well as a sizeable investment. If you are looking for your first luxury timepiece, one that can transition easily between the boardroom, school function, date night, and that fundraising gala, things such as the aesthetic, materials, and craftsmanship should all be top of mind. Searching for the brand that elevates your presence, while speaking to your lifestyle is the timepiece you confidently wear every day as you navigate through your full life.
Characteristics of an Everyday Watch:
- Versatile: An ideal everyday timepiece will pair nicely with many outfits, are appropriate for many occasions, and have the option to have interchangeable bracelets and straps to help change up the look of your timepiece.
- Average Sizing: For a timepiece that is going to be worn every day, it is ideal to ensure the timepiece is not too dainty, but also not too large. Looking for a watch that is between 34mm to 40mm in size is ideal for daily wear.
- Case Materials: For a watch that is going to be put to use every day, typically these timepieces will not include precious metals. The most resilient and resistant materials will be titanium, or steel helping to ensure your timepiece can keep up with your lifestyle – keeping it looking pristine for years to come.
