Sure, colour-blocking and minimal straps are all the rage these days, that “contemporary” look and all. But what ever happened to being a little more playful and adventurous when it comes to your entire outfit anyway? Prints, when matched with the right pieces, will work wonders and say a lot of about your personality (prints on prints too, if you wanna be a little more brave and go all out). And if you’ve always wanted to add a little more spice, but don’t want to go big, you could try wearing prints on accessories like watches. More specifically, watches from Timex.
Their Autumn Collection is the epitome of next-generation classic, boasting colours from crisp autumns nights in the city to leisurely country drives. Inspired by the iconic plaids of Scotland and the refined tweeds of England, this range mixes up tradition with excellent materials and seasonal textiles that are usually used in menswear. Part of the collection is the Originals series, which sees red or blue coloured tartan plaid straps with classic details like the genuine leather trim, reminiscent of those on vintage luggage from the 50s’. The Weekender Tweed on the other hand takes you back to a time when everyone loved tweed jackets, sans elbow patches. This silver-toned or gold-toned watch sports a modern take on a fabric that dates back to the mid-1800s.
You can also opt for the Weekender Reversible, which boasts paisley prints on a slip-thru washed nylon NATO strap, giving you more options in one watch. And last but not least, if you’re more of the outdoorsy type, the Timex Expedition watch would make a great, trusted companion for your adventures. This classic, heritage-inspired watch marries styling and materials from outdoor gear to capture the essence of the wilderness.
Timex – The Autumn Collection, $88-$128. Available at the Clout9 Store (Wheelock Place #02-09 & Capitol Piazza #B1-32). Also, purchase any Timex watch from now till 31 December at Clout9 stores and other participating stores to receive a free gift.
