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

Watches-2

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.

TAG Heuer Introduces the Carrera Mikrograph 1/100th Second Chronograph

by Time&Style Staff

With 150 years of watch-making experience, TAG Heuer has announced the Carrera Mikrograph 1/100th Second Chronograph.  Drawing on a patent by Heuer in 1916, the watch uses a piece of historical technology that had once been the official timekeeper of the Olympics.  Prior to Heuer’s patent, timepieces could only accurately measure to the nearest 1/5th of a second.

The Mikrograph uses a dual-control system that allows the stopwatch to function without interfering with the watch functions.  Its 1/100th of a second hand rotates at an astounding one revolution per second.  It also features a chronograph minute counter at 3 o’ clock, a seconds counter at 6 o’ clock, and a permanent second hand at 9 o’clock.

The Carrera Mikrograph is a very impressive timepiece by TAG Heuer and is limited to a production of only 150 worldwide.

You already know about Charvet shirts, you’ve gone to the trouble of finding the right shoes to go with a tux, and you know better than to wear a ski jacket with a suit or to tuck a man bag under your arm. But unless you have three different watches—or more specifically, at least one watch from each of three different categories—you cannot be said to have yet mastered the art of the wardrobe. Allow us to make a few suggestions to set you on the path to full sartorial enlightenment, or at least get you to dinner on time.
