STRAP YOUR­SELF IN

Whether you’re head­ing to the boad­room or the races, keep your wrist prop­erly at­tired

Make the right choice for your left wrist with a fine dress watch.

Con­trary to what Kanye West might be­lieve, you don’t have to be loud or dra­matic to make an im­pres­sion. You can also man­age it sim­ply by meet­ing a sit­u­a­tion with the per­fectly pitched re­sponse. That’s how it is with a dress watch, the ideal time­piece to wear with for­mal at­tire. Yes, it’s an ac­ces­sory that can lift your look to the next level. Cru­cially, how­ever, it does it by stealth. The adage to keep in mind when buy­ing one is very much “less is more”. Keep the func­tions sim­ple – all you re­quire here is time and date. Don’t worry about wa­ter-re­sis­tance either: you’ll be wear­ing it with a suit not a wet­suit, so go for a leather strap or metal bracelet and steer well clear of ny­lon and rub­ber. The over­all ef­fect of your dress watch should be clean, clas­sic and suf­fi­ciently slim­line to nes­tle be­neath your shirt cuff. Pay what­ever you can af­ford, safe in the knowl­edge this is one style in­vest­ment that will never date.
