The U-Boat Classico Automatic Chronograph makes a virile and masculine statement. The outstanding black ion-plated stainless case in a satiny brushed finish is presented on an attractive black leather strap with a convenient push-button clasp closure.
The style of the watch has never really made a drastic change. Sure from decade to decade, there has been different looks like the big digital watches, the glow in the darks, the water resistant etc. but what makes watches so special is that they are always in style no matter what the current season or trend. How do we feel about the classic accessory? Do we want to see more of an evolution of the watch? I found an interesting article that explained the release of a watch that had Bluetooth capabilities to check your calendar, text messages and email right on the face of your watch. A little too much for my liking but what do you guys think? Is technology taking away from the signature “timeless” feature of most watches?

You could opt to wear a dress shirt with French cuffs that do require cuff links to close the sleeves and may offer a bit more room on your wrist. However, French cuff shirts with cuff links have a more formal look and flair… and are not really intended to compliment one of today’s bold, oversized watches. A thin dress watch is more appropriate and elegantly suited for a French cuff shirt.

The oversized watch trend started in the early part of this century with popular watchmakers TAG Heuer, Invicta, U-Boat and Breitling offering extra-large models for men with cases measuring more than 42mm in diameter and 15mm thick.

Prior to this, most men’s watches averaged 37mm to 39mm diameter in size, while most women’s watches were well under 30mm in diameter in size.
