5 Casual-to-Dress Watches for Men and Women

Casual-tCasual to Dress Watches for Men and Womeno-Dress Watches for Men and Women

While watch collectors are into watches for the art and craftsmanship of watchmaking, the modern man and woman may simply want a quality piece that’s to going to work with their style, in as many ways as possible.

A truly versatile watch could be classic enough to be worn on a dressy occasion (such as a formal dinner or a black tie event), and understated enough to be worn in the boardroom and on casual Fridays.

Here are 5 watches that can take you from day to night, casual to dress, depending on your lifestyle:
<br>Rolex Steel White Baton Dial Oyster Bracelet Mens Watch | Rolex Datejust Steel White Gold Salmon Roman Dial Ladies Watch
A veritable classic, the Datejust has none of the comlications you may not need, but all the distinguishing features of a Rolex – the Oyster bracelet, the cyclops magnifying lens that enlarges the date, certified chronometer movement, and stainless steel Oyster case and bezel. This is a watch that will refine your look if you don a jacket or blazer, and add a luxurious edge to your shorts and tee.

The Tank Anglaise is the latest release in the family of Tank watches, and was launched in 2012. A refreshed interpretation of the original Tank watch, it features an updated case that has softer lines than the rectangular, Art Deco-inspired Tank. Even with its updated look, it retains all the traditional Tank design cues and still looks right at home with a suit or a dress, as well as with shirt and jeans.

<br>Jaeger LeCoultre Grande Reverso Date Automatic Mens Watch | Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso Duoface Stainless Steel Watch
Well-liked amongst collectors, the Reverso is actually the first sports watch ever made – it was launched to meet the needs of polo players in the 1930’s. That said, it definitely looks good with a polo shirt, but with its striking but elegant rectilinear lines, and almost “golden rectangle” proportions, it looks dressy enough to be worn with a suit, a blazer or midi-dress.
<br> Omega Seamaster 300 Spectre Limited Edition Watch | Omega Seamaster Diamond Ladies Watch
If you work in a very active environment, or are very active in your free time, you may want something that keeps time more precisely, and can take a little more beating. The Omega Seamaster has a long history with underwater adventure, but thanks to James Bond’s example, we now know that it will look good worn with a suit, or a blazer or pantsuit, for the ladies.
<br>Cartier Ballon Bleu Mens Stainless Steel Automatic Watch | Cartier Ballon Bleu Steel Yellow Gold Mens Watch
If you’re in suits or blazers all day, choosing a watch that will fit under the cuff should be the priority. The Ballon Bleu not only fits snugly under the cuff, it also lends understated elegance with its silver Roman numeral dial and stainless steel case and bracelet. With its clean look, and the different sizes available (case sizes range from 28mm to 46mm), it offers versatility that many watches can’t offer.
