I touched on the subject of style in my article titled, How to Create Your Own Style – Live Confidently, just a few days ago discussing how one must understand that when it comes to style it is more than just fashion. As we work to make a change in our habits and as slowly we progress towards getting rid of all the small, unattractive things we possess, fashion, which is a wing of the term, style, comes to play a huge factor to make a positive impact on our lives.
As one puts on a stylish suit to take his woman out to a dinner or attend a party on a Friday night, it is essential to walk out in completion. What I mean by that is that often we see men having a suit on, however, missing a good pair of shoes, sunglasses (if it’s sunny outside) or a wrist watch.
Let’s not forget that wrist watches play a huge factor when it comes to men’s fashion. You’re obviously a well dressed fellow since you’re reading this piece or a well-dressed woman, who is looking for a great watch or two for your well-dressed man. I’m pumped to team up with Ambassador to introduce some of the models from their prestigious Heritage Collection.
A Brief History of the Wrist Watch
Prior to World War 1, men didn’t have wrist watch. It was a women’s thing only. During the war, soldiers, who were tired of looking at their pocket watches for a time-check, instead came up with the idea of wrapping the pocket watches around their wrists. For some time, it was deemed anti-fashion, for wrist watches were initially designed for women only as it was close to a bracelet. But, as times changed, wristwatches made the market for pocket watches die down. Today, many of us believe that wrist watches are obsolete due to the presence of smart phones.
While having a smart phone makes the life easier, let’s not turn away from wrist watches for reasons such as it provides us simplicity; a unique sense of style; punctuality, because I don’t think cellphones really do. And, who wants to look desperate by constantly taking the phone out of his pocket to just check on the time or if you’re at the movies distracting the person next to you and the people behind you. I watch films on the big screens and every time someone takes their cellphone out to check on the time, I feel like snatching that thing from him.
But, thanks to the existence of wrist watches. When you can get yourself in a suit or look casual somewhere why not look complete, elegant and as well as sophisticated when you can. Take a look at the collection by Ambassador and see which one you think will look good on you. My personal favorite is 1863 model.
Heritage 1863 – King of Men’s Watches
The Heritage 1863 was designed to make a statement. Starting from the very bold color scheme, polished rose-gold with black face and strap – it’s bound to draw attention – and that’s exactly what it does. King of men’s watches. The design of this masterpiece comes from the 1800’s – equipped with Roman numerals, baton hands, highly reflective sunray dial and finished off with embossed indices and the Ambassador logo. A true masterpiece.
The Ambassador Heritage 1921
Heritage 1921 watch is nine-millimeters in thickness, forty millimeters in diameter, with a 316-L polished case. The dial texture is a Clous de Paris piece, with an excellent Japanese Quartz movement ticking silver baton hands around a chic face. A flat sapphire glass case encases the inner workings of this excellent piece of machinery.
The Ambassador Heritage 1959
Heritage 1959 is nine-millimeter-thick steel, forty millimeters in diameter, with a 316-L polished case that is coated in rose-gold. The dial on this timepiece is extremely unique, as it is a concentric circular pattern that is covered by sturdy sapphire glass. Keeping time with a Miyota quartz movement, the face of this wristwatch embodies the brand with a signature ‘A’ at the top to complete the look.
