What is a dress watch?

A dress watch doesn’t just tell time - it combines style with function. Just like pairing the right wine with your meal, choosing the best watch for your Christmas party can elevate your ensemble to an unforgettable affair. 

While there are many variations, the core characteristics of a dress watch are:

  • A slim profile that allows for a comfortable fit with formal attire
  • Minimal set of complications - which may result in the absence of a seconds hand
  • A high-quality leather strap or bracelet
  • A Smaller case diameter - typically between 36mm and 40mm
  • Occasional use of precious metals, like platinum, silver and gold.

What to look for in a dress watch

A reputable brand

The right dress watch won’t just come out for Christmas. It will become an elegant staple in your regular wardrobe. For this reason, your dress watch needs to be dependable, reliable and of high quality. Many well-known watch brands, such as Armani Exchange, Daniel Wellington, Fossil, and Tommy Hilfiger, are known for these qualities. 

Versatility and timelessness 

A good quality dress watch is going to get a lot of wear over the years. So it’s important to think about the other outfits and accessories you intend to wear with it. Do they all compliment each other? Can you wear the watch over and over again? 

For example, many dress watches have leather straps, so consider what shoes and belts you already have. 

The right case size

As with any kind of watch, selecting the correct case size in a dress watch is vital. The wrong case size may be uncomfortable to wear or seem out of place within your style. 

Larger watches are eye-catching and bold, creating a statement on the wrist. Smaller watches are subtle and have an understated sense of elegance. Whatever you choose, case size is entirely dependent on your personal preference.
