For some people, a watch is nothing more than a timekeeping device. For many women, however, a watch is a fashion accessory that coordinates with an outfit and/or an occasion. Fortunately, there are wristwatch styles that suit every need.
They are available in various sizes and often in bright colors. A casual watch may be oversized with a very large face, or it may contain a small, plain design. One popular choice is to have a variety of colored watches, such as bright pink, purple, or orange, to match various casual clothing. Watch faces may be plastic or polyurethane, and the timekeeping mechanism may have either watch hands or a digital readout. Bands for casual women replica watches come in several different materials, such as hard or flexible plastic, silicone, coarse ribbon-like fabric, and imitation or real leather. Casual watches are relatively inexpensive, allowing multiple options for varied occasions.
Sports watches often have large faces to allow easy viewing at a glance, such as during exercise or other sporting activities. While all-metal materials are possible, designs that are more rugged often contain plastic and polyurethane elements to avoid rust or corrosion from water, salt, and sweat. Sports watches may also serve as chronographs, acting as stopwatches that measure activities as well as keeping the time. They may have alarms and countdown timers, and they sometimes have glow lights for viewing in low-light conditions or at night. Many sports watches are waterproof or water resistant to various depths, making them ideal for diving. The cost of sports watches largely depends on the number and the sophistication of extra features.
Fashion watches are usually a step above casual watches in appearance, but they don’t reach the qualities of a luxury replica watch. They have style in addition to their utilitarian natures, and they can still include quite a bit of color; both muted tones and bright colors are common. With more metal, glass, and leather than plastic and polyurethane, fashion watches suit the business world, casual parties, or any semi-dressy occasion. There could be bejeweled enhancements around the face or on the band, but they’re likely to be rhinestones, crystals, or simulated gems rather than diamonds or rubies. Faces come in standard round, square, or oval shapes, but there are also unique styles, including triangles and trapezoids. Fashion watches are often moderately priced, but they can also be somewhat expensive.
Bracelet watches look more like regular jewelry than standard watches. They typically have watch hands rather than digital readouts although digital features are possible. Bracelet designs vary greatly, and they sometimes include jeweled enhancements or enameled features. Bracelet watches may have metal-plate bands and be relatively inexpensive, or they can contain precious metals. While metal bracelets are most common, thin leather straps or strands of beads are also possible. These watches often look like bangle bracelets with watch faces of various shapes inserted into them. The bracelet bands can be smooth, braided, woven, and more, and they can have intricate designs or even contain fine metal mesh. Styles also range from narrow to wide as well as being close or loose fitting; the possibilities match those of regular bracelet designs.
Luxury or Designer Watches
Luxury watches are just what they appear to be. They are the cream of the crop and are made with precious metals, precious stones, or both. Gold and platinum are common, and diamonds make frequent appearances embedded in the face, around the face, or in the watchband. Designer names typically raise watches into the luxury category, and other types of watches become luxury styles when expensive materials join other features.
