Philippine Tatler Traveller - - Contents - words marga man­lapig

While it is true that clothes make the man, it is in the small de­tails that one gets a sense of his taste and re­fine­ment. Time­pieces, in par­tic­u­lar, are a key el­e­ment for any man’s wardrobe: not only for telling time, but also for prop­erly fin­ish­ing off even the most ca­sual out­fits.

Even when trav­el­ling, well-made watches add style and fi­nesse re­gard­less of whether one is a rugged sports­man or an el­e­gant man of the world. Ex­quis­ite ma­te­ri­als are paired with in­tri­cate crafts­man­ship to cre­ate watches that are both so­phis­ti­cated and durable enough to stand the rigours of the great out­doors.

Like­wise, some time­pieces have fea­tures that are ap­pro­pri­ate for fre­quent fly­ers travers­ing from one time­zone to an­other or for those who need alerts for ap­point­ments—key func­tions for deal­ing with a busy sched­ule any­where in the world. From board­room and ball­room to beach­front and moun­tain­top, a good watch is cer­tainly the per­fect ac­cent for any place at any given time.
