Think of a wristwatch, any type or style, and you visualize a round-faced design with the standard numerals on the face, and perhaps a metal or leather strap. You might think of a chunky mens watch in the sporting style or a slim ladies watch with a pretty gold casing, but it’ s not often you will stray too far from the norm. That’s why it’ always refreshing to see designs that are a little bit different, and at Creation Watches we are always on the lookout for a fresh range to show you.
The Casio G-Shock Frogman GF-8250ER-2 is a good example; a superbly designed divers watch that offers a wide variety of functions and features, it draws on the classic style of similar watches from before, yet adds the typically neat and funky G-Shock look that is all the rage with sporting and active men these days. It’s a great men’s watch that is very popular, and one that looks superb on the wrist in a variety of situations. The rugged and strong construction also means it will last a lifetime, thanks to the great workmanship of Casio’s G-Shock design.
For ladies there is a choice of fantastically different designs, such as the Citizen Eco Chronograph FB1204-09E, a clever mix of the traditional and the modern and a success all-round. This watch doesn’t pander to the dainty, pretty look of some of the more standard watches for women, it brings a whole new look to the genre. There is something mysterious yet attractive about the black dial and traditional style strap, yet it is very much a 21st century take on the women’s watch. Being Eco-Drive it doesn’t need battery changes – any form of light source charges Citizen’s clever movement.
With modern design infiltrating the world of watches it is no surprise that the old favorite, the digital watch, is undergoing a revival. Men and women are turning to retro-look wristwatches for a touch of something different, and it has led to an influx of new models. As always, Casio leads the way thanks to the mega-successful G-Shock range, but there are other makers who offer a wide choice of different, stylish and fresh designs. You can find a great choice at Creation Watches because we know that a watch is something you don’t buy in an instant – it’s a carefully considered choice of style and function.
