There seems to be a lack of education on the subject, evidenced by the abundance of men wearing hideously oversized time pieces who are not Sylvester Stallone. My focus here will be to correct some of that and make a case for what I believe is one of the most versatile watches out there: the Timex Weekender.
Understated, cheap, and functional, the Weekender is great for everything from a casual trip out for ice cream to a simple biz caz outfit at the office. They only go for about $30 which is incredibly reasonable and which also means you can get multiple styles or colors. The beauty of these time pieces is in their interchangeable straps.
6 Watch Trends We’d Like to See in 2017

The most casual kind of watch band would be the nato. These can be had for around $11 on Amazon or for even less if you buy from our Chinese friends on Aliexpress. Nato’s are great because you can pick up a bunch of them and match them to your outfit. It’s worth noting that there is such a thing as too matchy, so make sure to work with complementary colors too. The nylon material also denotes a more casual feel.
A step up in formality can be had with a perlon strap. Typically worn with much nicer watches like Rolexes and Omegas, the perlon is a great way to step your watch game up a notch. You can wear a perlon strap with a more dressed up summer outfit or even to work (depending on your place of employment and depending on the color of your strap). Understated colors like grey or black tend to work well with a lot of outfits and keep your wrist game subtle, which is a good thing believe it or not (I’m looking at you Floyd).
Finally, if you want a more traditional leather strap, there are plenty of options for the Weekender. This may be the most versatile option without having to swap out straps for each outfit. A leather strap can be worn with anything from a full suit to a casual weekend fit. You can find a nice leather strap for about as much as the other two options above. This is a great option for those trendy folks who want the look of a Daniel Wellington without overpaying for a quartz movement. * Side note, DW’s are overpriced pieces of junk. For the money, you’re better off buying two Weekenders or a brandless option for literally a fraction of the cost. At the end of the day, they’re both quartz movements.
They say the devil is in the details and if you can show that you know what you’re doing when it comes to watches, it will make all the difference. My advice would be to pick up a Weekender, then get a few nato’s or perlons, and maybe a leather strap, and you’ll be set for almost any occasion. While it may not be a Patek or an Audemars, you’ll still look better than the kid with the bright gold Fossil watch hanging off of his wrist or the one wearing a G-Shock.
I enjoy cars, photography, sneakers, fashion, music, fitness, and successful people. Sometimes I write about those things too.
