BlogTips For Choosing the Perfect Back-To-School Watch

It’s “Time” for School!

As the summer draws to a close, it’s time to gear up for a new academic year. Many think of back-to-school shopping as just buying books, clothes and stationery, but the style-conscious student knows that it’s also about looking good! Stylish accessories that reflect the wearer’s personality and help make a statement should definitely be on everyone’s back-to-school list. 

One such accessory that combines fashion and functionality is the good-old wristwatch. We know there are smartwatches out there that carry all the tech, but let’s face it: you have a phone for that! Make no mistake, a real watch is art on your wrist. It’s the whole package:  incredible engineering, history, and fashion, all in one piece. Proper watches, whether they be quartz or mechanical, make a statement that you “get it”.

Here are some things to consider when choosing the perfect timepiece for your or your loved one’s next academic year.

  1. Style and aesthetics: When selecting a watch for school, it’s essential to consider the wearer’s personal style and preferences. Choose a style that complements their daily dress and fits their personality. 
  1. Durability and functionality: When worn by a student, a watch will likely endure its fair share of wear and tear throughout the day. Choose a watch that is built to withstand the rigors of busy student life. Look for materials like stainless steel or durable rubber straps that can handle daily use. Also, consider functionality like whether water resistance,  an alarm, or a stopwatch for timing those track times, is needed.
  1. Budget: You may not have a big budget to spend on a watch. The good news is that there are plenty of affordable and stylish options available right here in-store. You don’t need to break the bank to find a watch that suits the wearer’s needs.  
  1. Versatility and adaptability: Choose a timepiece that switches easily from the classroom to social – or even part-time job commitments. Versatility ensures that the watch remains a constant companion, helping the wearer manage their time efficiently in all aspects of life.

So, embrace classic time management, make a statement, and enjoy what may be your first step on the “horology” road. Be careful, it may lead to an obsession with time – but your profs or teachers won’t mind, trust us! We look forward to seeing you in store soon!
