Watches are a very personal piece of jewellery for men. Popularised by the Victorians who had a fascination with time pieces, the watch has remained a main fashion accessory for men around the world. The number of different materials, styles and faces available are staggering and there is something available to suit any man’s sense of style.
The pocket watch is making a come back as a distinct fashion statement. Many top men’s designers are now bringing out a range of pocket watches for the refined gentleman's look. These contraptions of time not only look good but are functional, easily slipping into a shirt or waist coat pocket. They are available in a number of different metals and leathers.
Steampunk, a subculture of the punk movement, imagines a world with no electricity where clockwork and steam are the only sources of machination. Many designers, including MB& F, Haruo Suekichiare and Casio, picked up on this theme and are producing unique pieces of retro-fiction fashion. Watches are a particular interest to steampunk enthusiasts. The steampunk ethos leans toward handmade rather than mass-produced products. Although these are more expensive than a run-of-the-mill watch, they are worth if for a truly unique look.
