GUEST POST: Designer Watches Online by Parul Chahal
Watches have been traditionally a part of clothing of the elite and westerners. They were available in different forms such as pocket watches but the trend that has beaten the effects of time is the wrist watch. The wrist watch is a unisex accessory which goes with different kinds of outfits. Earlier, men’s watches had large dials with leather straps or metal bands while women’s watches looked delicate with thin straps and small dials. However, the distinction between men’s and women’s watches have blurred over the years, with manufacturers incorporating some aspects of designing of men’s watches in those meant for women.
The latest trends taking the market for watches by storm is that of international brands. Earlier, Indian buyers swore by brands such as HMT. However, the focus has now completely shifted to premium lines such as Tommy Hilfiger, Tag Heuer, Omega, Longines, Seiko, Rado, Fossil and Guess. These labels are now coming up with watches that are more affordable on the pockets of the upper middle class, who want to upgrade their taste. Amidst the onslaught of foreign brands, the only Indian brand which is still braving the blitzkrieg is Titan. A subsidiary of Tata, Titan has been in the industry for 30 odd years and is staying ahead of the competition with its line of stylish watches that are covetable to both men and women. The pricing is also right that is why both the middle class and upper middle class can afford them.
Brands such as Casio, Diesel, and Guess have become popular among today’s shoppers because of the tasteful design, styling that is universally appealing and longevity. Even from afar, one would guess that these watches look premium and must be held in regard. These companies offer watches for both men and women in myriad styles such as chain bands, metal bands and leather straps which would suit different kinds of apparel. Those who wear watches as the only accessory on them should invest in a high-quality watch for the flash value and to make the ensemble stand out.
Brands such as Diesel, Fossil, Tag Heuer and Tommy Hilfiger offer watches in designs that look smart- large dials, prominent markings, pointed hands and a clean dial. Watches for women are available in both chunky dials and small ones with leather and metal bands. The markings are clean and the watches have a variety of hues used on them from the colour palette to make an impact. You can simply wear a chunky watch in white band with a little black dress and head out for a party. It is bound to turn the heads of other attendees.
