Did you think we’d left jeweled watches off the bill? Not a chance. Look at this classy number, the Rotary Evolution TZ2. Rose gold is a paragon of understated elegance, and everything about this watch–its textured face, the details of the strap–is subtle, but the combination of details leaves a lasting impression.
Take a good honest rest this Labor Day, browse through our selection, and treat yourself!
Moonphase watches received a good deal of attention back in 2011 after GQ declared that they were hot items. It’s surprising to some that their popularity has had a resurgence in the past year, but we think it makes sense. The moonphase adds an extra dimension to the face of the watch in the form of variation in color and geometric shape in a sea of luxury watches that can sometimes feel a bit samey. While these are classic designs, variety is, of course, the spice of life, and the fluid shape of the moonphase diagram is a striking counterpoint to the round face in which it sits.
The moonphase watch’s original purpose was to indicate how bright the evening would be for anyone planning to walk about at night. Going farther back, the lunar cycle was once used as a calendar during medieval times. Perhaps this is what influences the distinct starry atmosphere most moonphase luxury watches convey; they harken back to a time we often view in light of classic tales of chivalry and adventure, and the starry sky calls to mind fairy tales involving knights and princesses. You wouldn’t expect so much from a timepiece, but it’s amazing what a simple design touch can do!

Many aspects of 90s fashion and culture have been making a comeback in recent years–everything from anklets to mesh. It’s not altogether surprising; to quote Q-Tip, everything goes in cycles.
One cycle we didn’t quite see coming, though, is the rise, fall, and second rising of the Casio G-Shock. Perhaps the sportiest watch on the market, the G-Shock’s primary features are its resistance to heavy blows and its prominent stopwatch function. These things may seem irrelevant with the advent of smartphones, which are equipped with stopwatches and clocks–but ask anyone with a shattered touch screen if the iPhone is shock resistant. In fact, people drop their phones most often when they’re hurriedly pulling them out to check the time. Exercise mishaps are also much more common than you might think, what with elastic armbands.
Visually, G-Shock watches are, by today’s standards, singularly retro. Its plastic gloss and blocky shape are decidedly counter to what we’ve come to accept as fashionable. But that’s precisely their appeal. The stark primary colors of G-Shock watches naturally draw the eye, and their idiosyncratic shape is something onlookers actively try to decipher. Those with both a penchant for nostalgia and an eye for the future can use a G-Shock watch to make a powerful statement: the past is never irrelevant.
Sometimes class is key. In fact–most times, class is key. It doesn’t whether you’re a public speaker running the gala circuit, or a chef; a nice accessory is an emblem of your composure in any situation. It conveys your class to everyone around you–and we’re not talking about your paycheck. The affectation of neatness is what elicits trust; it shows that you’re capable of keeping your cool.
Certain color combinations are just classy by nature. There’s a reason for the term “black tie affair,” just like there’s a reason the Academy Award statuette is gold. Even if your everyday job doesn’t require a suit and tie every day, applying these universally accepted signifiers of class to your wardrobe will leave the same impression.
Jacques Lemans’ designer watches exemplify the classiness of black and gold. There’s a subtle grace about a black watch with a gold trim, and an impressive luxury about a gold watch with a black trim. With their simple, but well-defined designs, these watches leave an impression. Memorability is the hallmark of professionals; they are instrumental to their respective operations. Making an impression, by extension, is paramount to not only gaining respect, but keeping it, and encouraging the growth of fruitful professional relationships.
Fossil earns its name with its wide selection of earthy watches. As the story goes, the two founders, Tom and Kosta Kartsosis, named the company after their father, whom they referred to as an “old fossil.” Affectionate origins aside, many of Fossil’s watches evoke a railroad sensibility, hearkening back to a time when fossil fuels were a recent discovery. Because of this, many of them have a bit of a rugged association–perfect to complete a bartender’s outfit, at a trendy but intimate, hidden speakeasy.
Take a look at this men’s Ansel brown dial watch (FS4670, $125.99). Functional and efficient, but smart in its subversion of symmetry with Fossil’s signature crown and pusher placement (which is to say, the knobs on the side), this watch is perfect for a softly lit gastro pub. Fossil’s understated designs are perfect for the subtly fashionable.
Alternatively, Fossil’s white dial leather watch (JR1423, $118.99) brings Fossil’s classic build into a more eye-catching context with a stark white aesthetic sure to fit into a more a la mode outfit. Match with a white belt or shoes and primary colors for an outfit that pops, or let it stand out against a mostly dark outfit. Whatever your preference, Fossil watches are the mark of someone fashionably down-to-earth.
