How to Build A Watch Wardrobe

The perfect watch wardrobe can come down to three perfectly- chosen timepieces.

While a timepiece may be able to withstand incredible depths underwater or show you multiple time zones at a glance, even the best watches have their limitations. The watch you wear to the office, for instance, might not be a great choice for the gym, while the watch you wear on the beach probably won’t complement a tux. That’s the idea behind a watch wardrobe – a tightly curated selection of timepieces that offer something for every style and situation.

The first piece in any watch wardrobe should be a good all- rounder and, for most people, this means a Swiss-made steel sports watch with an automatic movement and perhaps a GMT or chronograph function.

Your second piece should be on the sportier end of the spectrum, with a durable and water-resistant case that’s rugged enough to handle your most adventurous off-duty pursuits, from working out at the gym to jumping off the dock at the cottage.

With office and weekend wear duly covered, the third ingredient in the mix should be something sleek and refined for special occasions, with a slim case, a leather strap and a clean, uncluttered dial.

These three selections will serve you well for most occasions, but your watch wardrobe can, of course, expand as you discover new brands, models and styles that resonate. After all, as any watch enthusiast will tell you, the perfect number of watches is usually one more than you already have.
