A watch is a timeless gift to present to the man in your life. But not just any watch: a designer watch. These are made with the utmost care and quality materials, leaving your man speechless upon unwrapping. 

Better yet, any watch can be personalized with an engraving of your choice. 

Watches are luxurious accessories that your partner will wear every day. It's more than that though. Designer watches are an investment in your future together. 

It is a statement that your relationship is as strong as the metal making up the extravagant piece. Keep reading to learn how to choose a perfect watch for your next gift to him. 

How to Choose a Designer Watch

We get it. The range of selections to go through when looking at designer watches can feel overwhelming. Before coming to our store in Tampa Bay, there are a few things to consider to make your experience a little easier. 

What Brand?

We at Johnston Jewelers have a wide variety of luxury brands to choose from. Think back on whether he has mentioned any of these brands before, or if he's admired a watch of a relative or friend. 

If not, then consider the type of man he presents himself as. Would he use this timepiece as a statement fashion accessory throughout his wardrobe? Is he a sporty man, requiring something sleeker? 

This guide can help familiarize you with a few of the designer brands we carry and what they're known for. 

What Metal?

Maybe your man already has some jewelry, therefore he has a specific metal he wears. But if this watch would be his first accessory, then you must decide what metal to choose. 

Put simply: gold tends to look better on warmer skin tones. Silver or platinum works best with paler folks. 

Here is a complete guide on skin tones and undertones to find the best option for your partner. 

If your man dresses more casually and doesn't generally like the shininess of metal wrist bands, then consider a leather band to pair with the watch face. This option ages beautifully and holds up just as well as silver or gold. 

What Shape?

When you think about a watch, most think of the traditional circular watch face. These serve as timeless watch options with a variety of styles within the circular face. 

But there are plenty of other styles nowadays. A more sleek look might ask for a rectangular or square watch face. Ovals are unique and might be better suited for a more slender wrist.
