Routine of men changes with season. After the arrival of summer season, wool dresses are replaced by linen ones, short sleeves replace long sleeves and desert boots are replaced with desert ready sandals. But the only thing that remains same in every season is our wrist watch which is perhaps not the right approach.

Erica Redgrave says that a dress watch looks quite appropriate for everyday use in winters as dresses in this season are quite adapted and prearranged. But the situation in summer season changes as these classic watches doesn’t look well with casual t shirts and shorts in heat.

According to Watchfinder’s head of retail, Alex Stonely, you need new rules according to practical situation of the weather. Swimming pool is normally used in this weather for which a watch with perfect water resistant qualities is required. Strap should also be given importance as canvas is the best option which is breathable than leather and lighter than steel.

After considering all these points, we are presenting following watches that will best suit you in the upcoming summer season.
