How to wear your watch the right way

A watch is an important element of your outfit. It is the most important accessory of a man and shows who you are and what you stand for. A watch can really complete your outfit, as long as you wear it the right way. Here are four tips to make sure you wear your new watch the right way.

Tip #1 - Choose the right arm
Do I have to wear my watch around my left wrist? Or is the right wrist also good? There is no strict rule for this. Both is good. But, uh... It's best to wear your watch around your non-dominant arm. Do you write with the right? Wear your watch around your left wrist, and vice versa. This makes it a lot nicer to do your daily chores. It is much nicer not to have anything on your wrist when you write with that arm.

Tip #2 - Choose the right watch for the right occasion
It looks a little weird when you wear a very sporty watch with a suit or when you wear a very chic watch with a tracksuit. It is therefore important that you take a moment to think about whether a watch fits the outfit or occasion of that moment. Luckily, our sides are not bothered by this. Our "Gilbert" watch is designed to fit any occasion. It looks good with both formal outfits and casual outfits. Maybe just take it off while exercising...

Tip #3 - Wear your watch in the right position on your wrist.
How far on my arm should I wear my watch? It is best to wear your watch in front of the 'knuckle' of your wrist. This ensures that your watch does not get in the way of the natural movement of your hand. In this way, you can move your hands freely without the watch hitting your hand every time.

Tip #4 - Wear your watch in the right size
To apply tip #3, your watch must be the right size. The watch should not move much when you wear it. It also doesn't look good when your watch is so loose around your wrist. The watch should be so tight that it does not move when you move your arm. However, it shouldn't be so tight that your wrist is pinched off and you'll be left with a print when you take off the watch. A good rule is to always have the space to put one finger between your wrist and the watch strap. Don't know how to adjust the size of your wristband? Then take a look at our instruction video:
