Lux Horology’s take on dress watches?

Owning a watch is similar to the rules of fashion – smart/ casual wear, work clothes, formal etc. and with that comes different variants of outfits, just like the watches you and I wear on a day to day basis. Everyday wear of a watch, would usually entail a stainless steel strap or rubber for an outgoing and on the go person, however when it comes to leather strap watches – especially if they’re made from gold – they are the pinnacle of accessorizing formal wear, blending seamlessly with your outfits and they bring out the sophisticated gentleman in which you are.
