For men, a watch is more than a timepiece. The designer and style of a watch portrays a lot about the man wearing it, making it more important than any other accessory or article of clothing.
Unlike other watch brands, Swiss-made watches are built to last generations and withstand all the wear and tear of everyday life. Picking out the perfect timepiece for every occasion is an enjoyable and meticulous ritual for a lot of men. However, what's a good starter watch or a luxury watch that you can wear almost anywhere? A watch that could take you from suits to swimming: a sporty watch is the most versatile of luxury timepieces.
