Gents Alarm Watches
It’s no secret that a lot of men enjoy fashion accessories only if they serve some useful function in addition to style. This is as true for bags as it is for watches. Fortunately, designers in the fashion industry understand this truth. Retailers provide an assortment of gents alarm watches for the man who appreciates style as well as function. With as many choices as are available, it’s only up to the man to decide which style or styles he wants.
Most people are accustomed to the gents sports watch, which is what often comes to mind when one imagines a watch with utility features such as an alarm. Common features include an alarm, start/stop timer, and a glow-in-the-dark face. This type of watch is usually the least expensive of any type because of the way it is made. Rubber, plastic, or some other inexpensive material is used for the wristband to provide comfort and durability, and the bezel is most often made of rubber or plastic. Hard plastic is used for the “watch glass”. The time display on such a watch is almost always digital to allow easy reading during athletic activities. Colors such as red, green and yellow are commonly used to add a fun touch for these gents alarm watches. For occasions where damage to the watch is a concern, this is the proper option.
For other occasions, where sweat, dirt, or impact are not threats, more conservative gents alarm watches are appropriate. This is because, as with any accessory, the gents alarm watch should be matched appropriately to the rest of a man’s attire. (This is the same reason why gents sports watches come in so many different colors.) There are many style options available, ranging from casual to very formal with price varying accordingly. More casual gents alarm watches have wristbands that are made of suede, leather, and metal. As with any type of gents watch, there are a few main colors from which to choose for the wristband of this more casual style: black, gray, silver, and gold. Formal gents alarm watches typically are made entirely of metal such as silver or gold. Diamonds may be added as adornments to the bezel of these types of watches, increasing both the style and average purchase price. The watch glass may be made of plastic or crystal. Gents alarm watches intended for everyday wear tend to include date utilities, not start/stop timers or glow-in-the-dark faces as on sports varieties.
There are so many styles that there is at least one watch suitable for every man. Ideally, if a watch is needed for sports then a second watch should be purchased for professional and social affairs. For any time when style and function are both requirements, gents alarm watches are the right choice.…
