What You Need to Know: Your Choice of Wristwatch Reflects Your Character

The timepiece you wear can tell so much about you in terms of style, personality, and lifestyle due to being an accessory that makes the perfect statement piece. Although timepieces can reflect your character, that won’t necessarily mean that they connect with your conscientiousness.

Similar to the choice of your clothing, everything you wear as well as your approaches to different matters and actions can show others who you are a person. Your selection of wristwatches has a similar effect. However, it enhances and highlights the reflection of your character by making it clear to people about your values and things you deem essential.

Although we usually wear timepieces for aesthetics as well the to keep the traditional timekeeping essence of the watch. Watches are also the result of our aspirations and as a significant way to connect with people who share the same taste and interests as us.

Thus, here are the things you need to know of your choice of wristwatch that’s capable of reflecting your character.

The Minimalist Man

The type of wristwatches for minimalist men tend to have a clean, straightforward design incorporating muted color palettes covered with a lot of black or white. Wristwatches that don’t look overly flashy but still have the capability of being a statement piece worthy showing others how you value simplicity.

Flashy timepieces with extra features that can be seen externally can be useless for a minimalist man. Valuing the essence of a traditional timekeeping tool to help you keep track of hours and minutes is more important. However, that doesn’t mean that a minimalist man doesn’t want to look sharp and consistent.

The best type of wristwatch that pairs perfectly well with men of this category is the Nordgreen Philosopher. The Nordgreen Philosopher is a dress watch with a contemporary and sleek design that you can also wear for any attire. You can also interchange the strap to your liking if you find the original black leather strap doesn’t suit your style.
