Choose watches 'to suit your workplace'

First published: 25-11-2011

People looking for a new watch to wear for work could feel they are overwhelmed by the number of different options that are available to them.

While some watches are sleek and classic, others are huge and covered in elaborate designs.

There are also a wide number of sports watches on the market, which may appeal to some in their leisure time but may not be completely appropriate for their workplace.

In order to find the right watch for the office, Toshiko Kobatake, managing director of talkingimage.co.uk, explained that one good way to decide on the right watch to wear is to look out for products which will fit in with your line of work.

She explained that people working in the City or in finance or law should think conservatively when they are picking out a new watch.

"It would be safe to wear a watch with a metallic band - silver, white gold, platinum or gold, or black leather. The watch does not have to be Rolex, Cartier or Omega, but keep it tasteful, subtle and avoid bling," Ms Kobatake said.

However, people who work in the fashion or creative sector could try something a little more interesting.

She said that depending on the corporate brand, it could be that individuality and creativity is actively encouraged among members of staff.

In this case, it is a good idea to look out for something which will provide a touch of colour or a feeling of uniqueness to an outfit.

Finding watches to complete an outfit is also a modern option for many people planning to purchase a timepiece, with Pam Mortensen, general merchandise manager of fine jewellery for JC Penney, recently stating that watches have become one of the hottest forms of accessory.
