Fashion watches 'ideal for students'

First published: 16-11-2010

Students have been given some examples of the best fashion watches they could purchase to stand out from the crowd in the university halls.

North By Northwestern has reported that a timepiece helps to create a practical feature to an undergraduate's outfit, as well as showing they "are entering the real world".

The news source noted plenty of varieties to appeal to all kinds of timepiece fans, with the Casio G-Shock providing students with a sports watch which is perfect for the athletic personality, as well as being trendy – Kanye West is just one star to have sported one.

For those after a fraternal watch, the Orient Metro Series could prove ideal, as its semi-skeleton design and stainless steel case creates "a modern, sophisticated look for a new generation of man".

Stylish watches seem to represent a growing trend among young fashionistas, according to new research from Mintel.

It found that 25 per cent of young people would search for a designer brand when hoping to purchase a new timepiece.
