What most defines an outfit is the added accessories.  It doesn't matter if you are a man or a woman, you need a timepiece that is both reflective of their outfit and their personality.  So how do you find the best watch for yourself?

What makes this so hard is that there are so many options available.  You can choose everything from Epos and Raymond Weil, all the way up to Cartier and Breguet.  The first thing to determine is if you want casual, dressy or sporty.

A sporty watch, as the name implies, is perfect for times when you are on the go.  These watches are usually waterproof and quite durable. After all, you can't go surfing in your shiny new Cartier!

The casual watch is one of the most popular categories, because you can use it every day.  Since they often have leather bands, you will want to get both a brown and black band to make sure you have most of your outfits covered.  Brands like Oris and Fortis have become popular for producing watches that fit into this category - providing a nice upgrade to the everyday watch, but without breaking the bank.

The grandaddy of them all is the formal, dressy watch.  This is where you can really spend some dough.  High end models like Franck Muller can go for hundreds, even thousands, of dollars.  The good nows is, most of these high-end watches are very dependable and can be passed down to your children - if taken care of.  There is even a healthy resale market for many of the more exclusive brands.

The important thing is to choose a watch that not only fits your budget, but also your personality.  If you are not the flashy, showy type - an expensive JLC might not be your speed.  However, if you are wanting to "dress to impress" - there are several show-stoppers to choose from.
