How to Choose Your Next Watch

by Ariel Adams

When selecting a timepiece, there are no shortage of appealing shapes and sizes to choose from. Your suit and shoes don’t do enough to tell people who you are. A man is framed by what he wears—and your style can begin or end on your wrist. A watch resides on your arm as a beacon of taste, personality, and of course success. A timepiece can communicate who you are or merely accent what you already project. Choose a watch with the right shape to fit the man you are (or want to be).

Geometeric Watches


Sitting between square and circle, the geometric case is one of the most “alternative” watch shapes you can find, available as octagons, decagons, or other shapes that eschew the notion of “round.” These are best matched with all manners of non-conservative dress for the design lover. Try one with a strap for formal attire and a bracelet for more casual outfits.

The timepiece-osphere (a term we have just now coined) is buzzing this week with news of the limited edition Montblanc Time Walker TwinFly Chronograph. Featuring titanium black DLC or stainless 43mm case, 72 hours of power, a sapphire crystal, a chronograph with flyback function, and a staggering amount of other high-end features, the $12,000 watch has watcherati (another term we’re coining) drooling. Though, less from the features, and more by the clean, meticulous aesthetic and breathtaking pedigree. Consider our voice added to the buzz.
