Many times, a man’s character and background is pre-judged by the clothes he wears, more so with the watch he has on. Timepieces are more or less the pièce de résistance in a man’s look, whether his out to work, for an intimate dinner with his romantic partner, out to party at a hip club, or to get an adrenaline-rush playing poker or roulette over at a lush casino-resort. So if you want that classy feel, that aura of high confidence, then here are some classic timepieces that will bring out the gentleman in you:
Omega Bond Limited Editions
There’s no one else that will exemplify how a gentleman and knight-in-shining-armour should be than with James Bond. In Daniel Craig’s debut as the enigmatic 007 agent in the film Casino Royale, Omega has made it a priority that the piece he is wearing connotes elegance and sophistication. As explicitly describing one of its limited editions in Omega’s official site, “The Seamaster Diver 300M Co-Axial 41 mm, used the 007 and gun logo, but now cleverly forming the counterweight of the seconds hand, so that it rotated. Most thrilling was the dial which featured a representation of the spiral of a gun barrel rifling from Maurice Binder’s famous pre-credits sequence, the one where Bond turns and fires at the screen.” Wearing one of Casino Royale’s Seamaster series would surely distract your opponents in a round of poker and would most probably reel in a date for the night.
World Poker Tour Commemorative
A watch need not be expensive, but it does need to have a look that radiates brimming confidence. There are no other specs that convey such than a watch that is stainless silver with a simple classic black leather band. Commemorations to grand competitions like the World Poker Tour will even add to the simplistic prestige a piece of accessory can imbibe. Not for sale in common retailers but also not sold in high-class timepiece brand boutiques, A WPT Commemorative His and Hers Watch set is the best example of attaining “the best of both worlds”. Wearing one will give you the confidence of not just being a casual poker enthusiast but someone who has had a feel of being involved in one of gaming leader partypoker’s most prestigious tournaments, the World Poker Tour.
HD3 Slyde Black and Steel
If you want your tech-savvyness mixed in with a feeling of classy confidence, then allow Slyde to be your wrist’s representative. As official sponsor of the European Poker Tour, the HD3 Black and Steel is a perfect example of technology meeting prestige. First awarded to winners in Season 9’s EPT, having this sleek technologically-advanced timepiece will truly make you feel like a professional ready to take on high-stakes poker or baccarat games over in Las Vegas. As described by Chrono24.com, “This model features a stainless steel case with black PVD-coated caseband and lug tips. The frame and the lateral sockets are polished. This timepiece comes with a blue numerals virtual engine and a black rubber strap.”
It may seem vain, but putting on that certain time piece can really complete, not just the look you want to attain, but also the confidence you would want to exude. With that, would you so mind as to let me know what time it is, my good fellow?
