Trends come and go and some stick around far past their expiration date. The oversized mens metal watch trend is still going strong, but frankly we’ve grown a wee bit bored with it. Instead of a chunky all gold watch, try colored bands, wrapped leather bands, texture, and more feminine faces. Here’s our guide to a new generation of timepieces with flair!
Thin, Leather Wrapped Bands
Give your wrist a chunky metal break with a thin wrapped leather band and texture.

If you’re bored with basic bands, try a multi-banded watch with bracelet style elements. The best part about this all-in-one style is that you don’t have to layer your bracelets. Just put on and go!

Sleek, Modern, and Square
If you love classic, single toned watches, try a sleek square style like DKNY’s mesh watch. The clean lines, mesh texture, and subtle gold tone is versatile and chic with any outfit.
