Sneakers with tuxedos, no ties at the office or a blazer with sweatpants – just about anything goes in terms of dress codes these days and the post-pandemic era of the WFH has done nothing but do. spread the message further. So, why not throw away your timepiece rulebook while you’re at it? Here we illustrate how a Cartier Tank Louis Cartier looks as beautiful with a Herno quilted waistcoat and Celine by Hedi Slimane sweater as it does under the cuff of your suit. Bulgari’s ultra-light, ultra-tough titanium Chrono GMT is equipped for everything from the gym to the meeting room. And Blancpain emphatically explains why a diving watch should not be put aside for sports or aquatic activities. Her gold Sedna Fifty Fathoms Bathyscape with a striking blue dial can be dressed with an Officine GÃ©nÃ©rale wool flannel jacket, but pairing the ensemble with a cotton denim shirt, the look goes from rigid sophistication to relaxed. But you can even take a casual timekeeper and take it up a notch. Concrete example: HermÃ¨s’ new H08 watch looks great in black when paired with a Ralph Lauren tuxedo, but could easily be cradled with jeans. Come on, give yourself an excuse to keep your vault valuables constantly spinning.
