Watches for men come in a plethora of styles and colors to accentuate different outfits they wear.
Classification of Watches
Watches can be classified on the basis of the type of display they have. This can sometimes dictate the kind of bezels, crowns and cases watches have. The display of watches can be broadly classified as Analog, Touch Screen Tactile, digital and hybrid.
This is probably the oldest and most commonly found type of display on watches. This type of display would normally feature an hour hand, a minute hand and sometimes also a second hand. You would have come across this type of a display a lot of times during your childhood. This kind of a display can also be found on the Big Ben in London, England.
This type of watch uses an LCD screen to display information such as the time, date and other functions. These watches are only available as quartz watches as they need to run on electric power.
These watches have analogue and digital watch features. They normally have the analogue hour, minute and second-counter hands. Behind these hands would be a digital screen that displays other functions. A good example of this would be the Casio G-SHOCK GA-1000FC model. This watch displays time, date, world time, stopwatch, timer, etc digitally on the LCD. There are hybrid watches that also function as fitness trackers that can be paired to your smartphone.
These watches are built to tell time even without you looking at it. They are primarily used by people who are blind. Tactile watches sometimes feature two ball-bearings that rotate around the watch to mark the hour and minute.
Touch Screen Watches
Touch screens are featured on smartwatches that offer a lot of features. Touchscreen displays are easy to navigate. The various functions and features that are with the menu and sub-menus are accessed through the touch function. Touch screens are especially useful for this as you can access the menus quickly.
Watches can be also classified as per their design cues. The various designs make watches appropriate for certain fashion trends. I normally wear my G-SHOCK even with my formals. For some, this is unacceptable and so they require formal watches and so on.
Casual watches are designed to be rather casual looking. This kind of watch is for a person that doesn’t demand anything other than time-keeping for his or watch. These can be used as a daily wear watch and it doesn’t cost much.
As mentioned earlier, a dress watch is meant to fit comfortably under the sleeve of your dinner jacket, formal suit or shirt. The design of this watch is slim so that they remain neatly concealed under the wearer’s attire. They do not draw too much attention yet it is nice that the wearer’s watch match with his shoes and belt. The dials and bezels of these watches are usually unornamented. The simple yet elegant design is retained best with colours such as white, black or metallic silver. They can also be found in gold or rose-gold colours.
Fashion watches are sold by brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Kenneth Cole, Calvin Klein and Hugo Boss, among others. These brands are well known for their reputation in the fashion circuit rather than the watchmaking world. They are like casual watches that follow a brand-specific design cue.
