Fashion Understatement: How to Wear Minimalist Watches
Once on the fringe of the prestige-watch world, minimalist watches are a recent trend that shows no sign of retreating. The most luxurious watch brands create simple yet elegant offerings that can be worn just about anywhere.new design hand watch
There are two very good reasons to invest in a minimalist watch - first as an expression of your personality and sense of aesthetics and second as an investment that appreciates with age. A minimalist watch says you have little to prove while subtly displaying your distinctive taste and style. Sophisticated with a casual side, you spin magic in the digital wonderland by day and help the kids with homework by night. And minimalist watches retain both value and relevance with classic designs that feel contemporary even decades after purchase. That's why luxury brands such as Omega, Rolex and Patek Philippe all include minimalistic watches in their lines.
An uncomplicated yet sophisticated choice for women is the Patek Philippe Ladies' Calatrava. Descended from a line created the 1930s, the watch exudes the same disarming charm and understated elegance that's been a hallmark of the Swiss watchmaker for nearly a century. Wear the Patek Philipp while browsing the farmer's market or at a formal social affair. Employing the same dial style and case as its male counterpart, the Slim d'Hermes L'Heure Impatiente is a newer entry that emulates its classic forbearers. But with a whimsical twist. There's a countdown function with a charming ring that's for the wearer's ears only. Drawing inspiration from Bauhaus minimalism, the Orion from German watchmaker NOMOS Glashütte has a design with contoured glass that is at once contemporary and timeless. Its gentle flowing lines are appropriate from the beach to the boardroom.
For upscale and classic style, it's hard to beat the Junghans Max Bill. Created by the namesake designer, the Max Bill has remained nearly unchanged since its debut in 1961. Minimalist design gives the German timepiece a modern feel with a stainless steel case and understated Milanese strap. A Swiss watch that you can pair with a suit or weekend wear, the Double 8 Origin 87WA154210 exudes relaxed elegance with its deep-blue dial and matching leather band. A relatively fresh face in the Swiss-watch market, 88 Rue De Rhone was founded by the grandson of celebrated Swiss watch pioneer Raymond Weil. Across the Atlantic, Hamilton watches have been crafted in Pennsylvania since 1982. For a multi-use minimalistic piece, check out the Jazzmaster Slim Auto with a sleek black dial, black leather strap and polished stainless steel case that embodies time-honored tradition.
