The latest styles of men's watches
Find out what are our best selling men's watches right now.
Before the invention of the quartz (battery operated) mechanism in the 1970s, watches were once thought to be a luxury item that only a privileged few could afford. However, with rapid advances in modern technology watches are becoming more accessible to the masses. Materials such as ceramic and fabric are now being used to lower the cost, but that doesn’t mean that the quality or style of the timepiece is in any way compensated.
Some of our top brands offer stylish and affordable watches that perform to an incredibly high standard, brands such as Daniel Wellington, Henry London, Timex and Sekonda. So if you want to follow the latest trends and receive a great quality watch, House of Watches is the place to visit.
In a world where we are bombarded with adverts, changing fashions and apps for everything imaginable, it can become quite tiresome. Recently, we’ve seen a trend emerge that’s calling for everyone to take a step back from technology for a significant amount of time in order to recharge our batteries. With this trend in motion, a minimalist approach to design has come to the forefront of most designer’s minds; a stripped back watch that is suddenly the height of fashion, with blank faces, baton hour markers, thin metal cases and simple straps.
If this is the trend for you, take a look at Skagen and Swatch for minimalist design inspiration.
Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of investing in a luxury watch through the use of compelling marketing from prestigious brands. A watch is now personified, an investment in the future to be passed down through generations; as consumers, we love the thought of immortality and prestigious timepieces offer it to us.
In an age consumed by technology, smartwatches have now entered the market and are becoming more mainstream than we ever could have imagined with brands like Guess and Swarovski creating their own. Smart watches have many great features for modernists, such as Fitbit technology, Bluetooth and touch screens.
