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.

Bulgari Octo Automatic, $9,500 at Bandiera Jewelers; Corum Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 Chronograph, $4,625; Concord C1 Grande date, $7,900; GC-3 Automatic, $1,250.

Ulysse Nardin Chairman luxury smartphone

by Time&Style Staff

Swiss brand Ulysse Nardin are historically known for their nautical chronometers, and they have carried over that level of precision into the modern era. The Chairman, a watch-smartphone hybrid, is in the pre-order stage. The main feature of the phone is an operational mechanical watch rotor, which gives extra power to the battery in the same way that kinetic watches draw power. Coming in 12 different versions, the phones feature 32GB of memory, touchscreens that include thumb print recognition, and are constructed with over 300 parts. A docking station, made out of lacquered wood, is included. Only 1846 pieces of each of the 12 models will be made. So we recommend ordering one soon if you want to settle the debate between your friends over who has the best phone.
