How To Wear a Watch (and Not to be Rude at Dinner)

How To Wear a Watch (and Not to be Rude at Dinner)

Hey there, Trusties!

Today, let's dive into one of my absolute favorite topics – watches. Yes, that timeless piece (pun intended) that adds a whole new level of sophistication to your wardrobe. So, let's chat about why a classic watch is the unsung hero of your jewelry collection. 

Now, you might be thinking...

"I've got my phone; I don't need a watch."

But hear me out – when you're a professional, or out for a nice dinner, nothing says 'I'm not present' like pulling out your phone for the time, rather than a quick, subtle glance at your wrist. 

Trust me, it's way classier to take a glimpse at your watch than fumbling for your phone and disrupting the flow of the conversation. I've been there, done that, and learned my lesson.

Where to find your perfect watch? You may already own it. 

So, step one in the watch game: raid your jewelry box or see if your family members have any watches they are no longer wearing. Your grandma's vintage piece or your grandpa's old-school watch could be the hidden gem you didn't know you needed. Toss it on with some fresh outfits, and bam! Instant vibe upgrade. And if it needs a watch battery (most quartz watches's will after a couple of years), simply bring it on in and we can get it running like new, right on the spot.

If that's not the case, let's talk choosing your perfect watch. Are you concerned about the look of the watch matching your style, or are you all about practicality, just needing to read the dial? Think about your daily life. What functionality do you need in your timepiece? For instance, do you need to know the date in addition to the time? Is having multiple time zone's appropriate to your lifestyle? Or are you more concerned about the aesthetic look of the watch and want it to match your personal style? Our watch collection is curated to fit your needs. 

Are Watches Worth It? 

Now, let's get into the nitty-gritty of investing. A fine timepiece is like a fine wine – it gets better with time. I've got my grandfather's timepiece, and it's still turning heads and running great (with routine maintenance) after 40 years. These babies are generational, a solid investment that can be passed down for generations - how priceless is that? So, if you've been eyeing that luxe watch, go for it. It's not just an timepiece; it's a legacy.

But, and here's the thing, it's not just about owning a luxury timepiece; it's about wearing it right.

How Should a Watch Fit?

A dead giveaway of an inexperienced watch-wearer is when it's hanging off your wrist like a bracelet. Get that beauty fitted at a jewelry store; trust me, it makes a world of difference. Your watch should feel like it's part of you – snug, not sliding around. I've seen it too many times – people rocking a gorgeous watch that's drowning on their wrist. Not a good look, my friend.

So, pro tip: whether you splurged on a fine Swiss timepiece or snagged a gem at a thrift store, get it fitted.

A well-fitted watch not only looks sharp but also ensures your timepiece stays in top-notch condition, and we can do that on the spot for you at any of our retail locations - even if you didn't purchase it at Springer's. 

So, there you have it – the lowdown on why watches are the real MVPs of your jewelry collection. Whether it's a family heirloom, a recent Instagram find, or a timely splurge, treat your watch right, and it'll be turning heads for generations to come.

Stay classy, and stay on time, my Trusties!

Sincerely, Lilly
