Which Wrist to Wear Your Watch

How to properly wear your quality watch.

When it comes to your Taki Watch, we know you want to show off its color and fashionable style the best way possible. No matter what style you choose, your watch says a lot about you; why not wear your watch the right way, so everyone knows what a fashion icon you truly are?

You may be thinking to yourself, how can there be a right way to wear my watch? You are right; technically there is no one RIGHT way to wear your watch, but there is the best way, emphasizing its beauty and its style. If you have your Taki Watch on right now, look down at your wrists. Which wrist is it on?

Quality watches for sale online You may have noticed, men wear their watch on one wrist while women tend to wear it on another. There is no correct side to wear your watch and generally speaking, many people just wear it on the wrist that feels most natural. At this point, putting your watch on is probably a subconscious thing you do. The next time you put your watch on, though, you may want to take this into consideration before you do.

Right or left, your non-dominate hand is just easier.

Which hand you wear your watch on has been analyzed throughout time, but the truth is it does not matter. Men are not supposed to wear it on the right where women do on the left; it is not a wedding band, it is a fashion statement that serves a purpose.

For most, the wrist you choose to wear your watch on is opposite of your dominant hand. Think about when you are at work; you use your dominant hand more frequently and if your watch was on that same wrist, you may find it uncomfortable. Whether typing, writing, or even working out, you do not want something getting in the way of your natural movements. Not only does wearing you watch on your non-dominant hand make things more comfortable, but it is also easier to tell the time when you lift your wrist to see the face of your watch.

Ultimately the decision is up to you, though. Whether you choose your right or your left wrist, all that matters that you wear your watch with pride. Shop our wide selection of quality watches online now and get free shipping on your order today.

The Right Size Face For Your Wrist

What is the best fashionable watch size for your wrist?

It is no secret that at Taki Watch, you have an almost endless selection of watch styles to choose from. With so many fashionable watch choices, it can be hard to know what style is the best for your wrist. The last thing we want you to do is get a watch you are not satisfied with; so we have included some tips and pointers to help you select the right size face for your wrist, ensuring your Taki Watch is exactly what you imagined.

It all starts with the right proportion.Shop for your favorite style now!

As humans, we are innately drawn to things in natural balance. When it comes to your wrist, for your watch to truly stand out as a fashionable one for all the right reasons, you must consider its actual size. What that means is – if your wrist is small, choose a smaller faced watch like the Eagan or perhaps the Crystal.

You may be thinking to yourself, how do you know if your wrist is big or small? Well for starters, you can actually measure it and see for yourself. If your wrist is between six to seven inches around, then you are considered to have a small wrist and should stick with small faced styles. If your wrist is larger than seven inches you will look best wearing a large faced style.

Once you know the size of your wrist you can begin to pick out the right fashionable watch for yourself!

Any of our watch faces measuring between 38-42mm will be suitable for those with small wrists. Choosing a watch face that measures between 44-46mm is going to be more proportional for those with large wrists. Although the case setting and bandwidth do play into the overall size of your watch, what is most noticeable is the actual face itself. Do not make your watch stand out for all the wrong reasons; instead get one that fits your wrist and makes a bold, fashionable statement. Whether you are looking for something bold, bright and beautiful, or something a little more contemporary, it is the size of the face that is going to make all of the difference on you.

At Taki Watches we offer a wide selection of both men’s and women’s fashionable watches, so no matter what size wrist you have, there are a variety of colors and styles to choose from. There is the perfect watch for everyone, get yours online today, and receive free shipping.

The Wristwatch Through Time

How Our Designer Watches are Just the Latest in Timekeeping Innovations

m1-bgThough functionally replaced by cell phones, wristwatches remain popular this far into the 21st century because of one major aspect: their use as a fashion status symbol. Being sought after for their simple fashion design and trendy head-turners, wristwatches actually had a very specific, very utilitarian beginning.

It may surprise many to know that the origins of the wrist watch began in the trenches of Europe during World War I. It was the military that first saw the logical need of a watch that didn’t need to be removed from a pocket in order to use. Watches worn on the wrist allowed soldiers engaged in military operations throughout Europe the ability to quickly ascertain the time through the chaos of combat.

Labeled dismissively as “bracelet watches” the trend was slow to catch on in the United States, even after women of Europe began sporting the innovative accessory socially. Watchmakers across the globe started to recognize the feasibility of the new trend and began to build watches for the wrist in droves after the war ended.

Marketing the wristwatch also reflected its military beginnings. Many manufacturers targeted men as their next potential customer, implying that wearing a wristwatch would make them more like a soldier, more masculine and rugged. Others remarked that wristwatches were “the most useful piece of jewelry that has been invented in many decades,” according to an article that appeared in New York Times during that time.

These days, it is arguable that wristwatches are not favored for their functionality as clocks are as ubiquitous to daily life as one could expect. Thanks to cell phones, computer screens and even coffee makers, finding the answer to the question “what time is it?” is seemingly as simple as turning your head. If you are wearing a wristwatch, it’s probably because you are a fan of the personal design that a quality designer watch offers.

At Taki, we strive to reflect that passion for quality wristwatches that so many timepiece devotees experience. With a wide variety of colorful watches, we offer the fashion conscious among us an affordable space to shop for men’s and women’s designer watches online. We invite you to browse our eclectic collections now and welcome any of your comments, questions or concerns.

How To Properly Wear A Wristwatch

drinking waterAt Taki, we’re not going to stifle anyone’s creativity, and we truly invite you to wear your accessories however it is you like them. That being said, wearing a wristwatch properly can make all the difference when it comes to comfort and functionality. Keep these tips in mind to ensure you’re wearing your watches properly.

How To Wear A Wristwatch

Choose The Most Convenient Wrist

Which wrist you wear your watch on will depend on your personal preference and hand dominance. Typically, both men and women wear watches on their nondominant wrists in order to protect the watch and ensure comfort. For example, a right-handed laborer wouldn’t want to wear a watch on his or her right hand, where it’s most likely to get knocked or scratched throughout the workday. It can also be easier for some people to write without watch bands resting under their wrists.

Strive For Snug Comfort

Sizing your wristwatch to your wrist requires balancing comfort with a snug, but not tight, fit. If your watch leaves marks on your skin, the band needs to be loosened. As a rule, your watch should be able to move up and down on your wrist but not side to side.

Avoid the Wrist Bone

For optimal comfort, position your watch below the wrist bone on your arm. Some watches, especially women’s watches, aren’t made to be worn this way, but the typical wristwatch will fit your wrist below the bone comfortably.

Now that you know how to wear your wristwatch, check out our collection of fun, contemporary watches.
