Gents solar and quartz, battery powered watches available in stainless steel, gold tone and rose gold tone on metal bracelets and leather straps with many special features.
Gents and mens watches are available in many styles and with a variety of features. Think about when the watch is to be worn - is it for everyday or occasional use. An everyday watch needs to be functional and easy to use with a clear dial that can be seen. The day and date may be helpful. Is the watch likely to come into contact with water - consider the water resistance level required? (50m is suitable for swimming in a swimming pool, 100m is suitable to jump in a swimming pool, Divers up to 1000m).
Watches are generally a silver colour or gold colour, but there are many different options to choose from, including stainless steel, gold tone, two tone, rose gold tone as well as more exotic possibilities such as titanium and black ionised finishes. You may prefer a leather strap or a bracelet. We will shorten your watch bracelet to ensure your watch fits and is comfortable for you.
These days there are a number of ways that watches are powered. Advances in technology have move forward from the traditional wind up mechanical watch, first with an automatic option, then quartz battery, to a combination in kinetic. Solar watches are now well establishes and offer the convenience of no battery change with some models accurate to within one second in a million years. Solar watches typically reach full charge in a couple of days depending upon the available light and have a minimum power reserve of six months. The same challenges still exist for a manufacturer - power generation verses power consumption.
