The Best Silver Watches For Men
A watch is a man’s personal accessory. It is not just sat on the thin of your wrist to tell the time, they are a statement piece, and an extension of the wearer. Take silver watches for example. They are classic, sleek and smart, suitable for any dapper man. Here is a list of the best silver watches for men out there.
The death of the watch has been widely predicted but despite all the technology available today watches are still an important part of men’s outfits. What men look for now is not something that makes a statement about them rather than an essential time keeping device so often we’re more willing to spend a little bit more. You can also make a statement on a budget, there’s an option for everyone.
Men’s Designer Watches
With so many men’s watches to choose from it’s not easy to decide which is best for you. You can spend hours researching and still not be able to make a decision. When looking at men’s designer watches have a clear idea of price in mind and stick to it when browsing.
As much fun as it is to look through expensive watches for hours on end; if you can’t afford them there are far more important things you can be getting on with. Once you’ve got a clear price in mind it makes it a lot easier to find something that works for your budget.
Men’s Classic Watches
A classic watch look has to be the leather or canvas strap. Some of the most impressive watches out there are based on a classic look. A classic watch that doesn’t fit in this stereotype has to be the Casio G-Shock. It was the first G-Shock to include their shock resistant technology in a metal exterior so it’s your chance to own a G shock watch in silver. The features include:
- Solar powered.
- Date display on the face.
- Stop watch and a world clock option.
- 7 months standard battery life without light exposure.
