Eyes open when buying watches!

Regardless of trends, it is always important to pay attention when buying if the watch fits with the existing outfits and clothing style, too much color quickly looks chaotic and restless. A watch should be a well-considered investment, because a high-quality watch is not something you buy every day and you want to enjoy it for a long time. It is also important to pay attention to which components were installed, is mineral glass or sapphire glass? Sapphire glass is the hardest glass, only diamond is harder. After all, unsightly scratches should be avoided. Does the watch have a high water resistance? This is given in bar or atm, the higher the value, the better. 1 bar corresponds approximately to 0.98 atm. A watch should at least survive a rain shower without damage. What is the quality of workmanship? How often is the watch worn? In everyday life, the watch strap quickly wears out, so it should be sturdy and well-made. How long is the warranty period? This varies from dealer to dealer. For this have compiled tables for ladies and gentlemen to create an overview at what price range for entry-level models you get what watch.

Top watch trend 2022 #1: Sustainability & durability, watch made of wood or high quality materials, fair and environmentally friendly production.

 

Both in the women’s and men’s world, a change can be observed that not only affects everyday life to leave one’s biological footprint on this planet as low CO as possible, even the fashion world is in the middle of a “rethink”. Whereas a few years ago the only issues in terms of environmental friendliness and climate protection were waste separation and fine dust pollution, nowadays the focus is on clothing made from recycled textiles, organic cotton, fair prices and better conditions for workers during the production phase.

Now the time has come in the watch market as well: sustainability in terms of resources and natural materials such as wood and marble as components of the watch, are coming to the fore here this year. Already in recent years, the trend of watches made of wood began to appear, more and more it is gaining consistency. Wooden watches look natural, warm and original. The manufacturers are pursuing concepts in which a portion of the proceeds goes to environmental projects, or even a tree is planted for each watch sold. So if you want to appear grounded and consciously do something good with your purchase, reach for the watch made of natural materials.

The reviews of the presented model are on average very good 4.5 stars.

Top watch trend 2022 #2: Black edition chronographs, when less is more

A trend that appears every now and then in the fashion industry is the color black. This year, the time has come and the dark accessory on the wrist celebrates its comeback. What has changed from recent trends is that the time-honored chronograph is undergoing a renaissance and seems to unite the nominal opposites plain and (mostly) big.

The typical chronograph usually relies on an expansive, eye-catching design and flaunts its additional functions.But it also goes differently, combined in plain black / graphite and reduced to the bare essentials, the gem is reduced to perceived handiness, regardless of the relatively large diameter of 45 -50 mm and up to 15mm in height, it also fits on rather delicate wrists.

The Black Edition Chronograph presented here gives you the typical functions you can also expect, such as stopping the time, in addition to the reduced design. In addition to the very good readability through the double-sided anti-reflective sapphire crystal, it also scores with the built-in Miyota 0S20 premium movement, which is designed for long durability.

The dimensions of 45mm and 12mm are in the rather handy field of chronographs and pose no problem even for somewhat narrower wrists. The model “Sheriff” is rounded off by a 10 ATM water protection sealing, which award the watch upscale water defense qualities and in the price range to
229 Euro
are not a matter of course.

Buyers of the model mainly approve of the minimalist design of the watch, the 10 ATM water resistance and the installed sapphire crystal are also praised.

5. nato bracelets and mesh bracelets

Also popular this season are watches with milanaise bracelet and nato bracelet. What is the difference? Nato bracelet is made of nylon, either plain or black and white and other colors in combination with white, as well as a metal clasp and two metal rings. The colored variants are suitable for hipsters who want to set trends and add a special accent to their outfit with the watch. They are far more eye-catching than milanaise bracelets. The Milanaise bracelet (derived from Milan, where it originated) also known as mesh bracelet is mostly made of stainless steel and looks mesh-like, which is what the term mesh stands for, which translates to mesh. It is heavier than leather or nato strap and less flexible. It works especially well with the business look.

Conclusion & Outlook

The watch trends for men and women in 2022 are daring, but not completely new. As in fashion in general, certain patterns repeat every few years. However, some trends such as minimalism and black men’s watches remain with us constantly and do not seem willing to disappear so quickly. Other trends, such as the (very beautiful) rainbow-colored dials, on the other hand, are rather temporary phenomena that are likely to play a subordinate role again in the next few years.

Nevertheless, individuality is writ large and the variety is as high as never before, so that every man or woman who is looking for his own individual accessory should be happy. In any case, we hope that this article will give you a few ideas about the wide range of possibilities that the (quartz) watch market will offer in 2022.
