It needs to be hard-wearing and able to be worn with a variety of different outfits. Here are some of the most popular varieties:
Whilst some think military watches are only those issued to the armed forces, others apply this term to any watch which is tough, understated and utilitarian. It includes pilot and diving watches and can come in a variety that is deemed virtually indestructible. For the toughest watch, choose a mechanical one so you never have to worry about battery life.
Originally these were a real pilot’s tool, a necessary addition to their flight with highly accurate and easy to read faces along with oversized components that could be easily manipulated in gloved hands. The style remains popular today and works best with a casual outfit. Find a new outfit for your new watch with Calvin Klein Menswear from EJ Menswear
These were originally designed to be worn in the water. To qualify as a diving watch it must be visible at 25cm of total darkness and have a luminous hand on the face. It also needs to have magnetic, shock and chemical resistance with a sturdy wrist strap. Of course, these days most divers don’t rely on watches anymore but when worn with a leather strap, they do retain enough sartorial elegance to remain popular.
