It’s About Time You Find a Watch That Fits Your Lifestyle


We live in a world where we rely on our phones for pretty much everything―communication, playing games, shopping, and telling time. As much as it is convenient, I like to check time the old-fashioned way, with a watch. Depending on what you do within the day, the watch you wear changes. It also serves as a functional accessory and who doesn’t love that?

If you hike, wear a shockproof watch. If you’re constantly traveling, a dual time zone watch is useful. Looking for a timepiece that suits your lifestyle? Check out the ones we’ve listed below.

Sports junkies

g-shock watch

 Cop: G-Shock Mudman G-9000-3V

Shop: Available at Time Depot, Power Plant Mall.

Whether you go to the gym or run for exercise, a watch is necessary. You can use it to time your sprints or if you’ve spent too much time lifting weights. For these activities, it would be best to get a heavy-duty watch like this one from G-Shock. The Mudman is dust, dirt and water resistant, has a dual illuminator backlight, and a stopwatch.


tissot watch

Cop: Tissot Tradition Silver Dial Two-tone Watch

Shop: Available at SM Makati.

Whether you travel a lot for work or pleasure, consider purchasing a dual time watch. That way you will be able to keep track of the time back home and never miss a deadline because of the time difference. This one from Tissot has a stainless steel case and bracelet, making it easy to clean and goes with whatever outfits you have packed.


gucci watch

Cop: Gucci La Marché Des Merveilles Watch

Shop: Available on Farfetch.

I’m sure you’ve all seen the memes Gucci posted about their new watches. This one in particular is sure to turn heads with an embroidered golden tiger motif on the face. It also features the words “L’aveugle Par Amour” (blind love) stitched on its navy and red strap.

Fancy Nancy

Christian Kabon watch

Cop: Christian Koban ‘Cute’ Analog Watch

Shop: Available on Farfetch.

Formal events call for a formal watch, one that will complement your outfit. More often than not I try to go for a small and dainty watch like this one from Christian Koban. Its gray leather strap, diamond face, and silver tone hardware will go with a gown, pantsuit, or cocktail dress.

All day every day

nixon watch

Cop: Nixon Kensington Leather, 37mm

Shop: Available at Glorietta 4.

For a watch that you can wear every day, best to wear one that’s not complicated and matches most of the pieces in your closet. This leather strapped watch with gold hardware can be worn to business meetings and when you’re just doing errands.
