Watch it

From being regular time machines, watches have come a long way to make personal style statements


INTRIGUING THOUGH it may sound, the natural sun clock laid the foundation for the present-day `time carriers.' Today, "time wear is running with time"... a statement just so right with regard to wrist watches this season. Watches from being the regular time machines have been catapulted into the stratosphere of `creative design.'

From the gentleman's closet, this indispensable accessory is calling all men with a penchant for precision in design and technology. Flagged under the vision of geometry, the style gallery takes an oscillation from the most `sci-fi' to the most `formal'. Get handcuffed in a macro dial, chronograph time machine. This pointer hints towards a stopwatch function. It also comes with an accurate timer for recording time.

In this jet age, resist a watch with dual time... at your own peril! This time carrier has a function that enables you to set the time of another country.


Staying away from a sports watch could be hazardous! This wristwatch comes in trendy colour schemes, heavier looks and functions such as an alarm and stopwatch.

The colour tray is rustic yet vibrant, dull yet bright. From deep tan, olive, navy to lighter camel and pale white - it's all there this season.

From muted mahogany to bright reds, be confident to wear your own style. In the men's domain, the time machines reflect a wide array of colours like never before. The style charts hint at a blend of leather and steel, soft yet macho.

With a blend of technology and design, the wristwatches have come a long way. With a craving for modern day multiple functions and concepts, watches are no longer mere `time carriers' but carriers of a personal style and statement. Make sure you declare the right statement this season.
