Looking for some iconic watch inspiration before making a purchase? You’ve come to the right place. Here’s how to get the legendary watch styles of sportsmen and style icons Conor McGregor and David Beckham on a budget.
Bold like McGregor
Daring fashion choices have seen MMA champion Conor McGregor grace the cover of endless men’s publications. His signature watch style – most commonly a Rolex – has a significantly larger casing and coloured dial and is often rose gold. Look to Michael Kors’s all-gold version for a similar effect.
Dapper like Beckham
David Beckham’s style status is legendary, and so is his fascination with detailed timepieces. His usual go-to styles include colour-contrasting straps from brands like Tudor and Patek Philippe. But in case you don’t have a spare £200 000 laying around, opt for Angela Bos’s dapper style instead.
Bright like McGregor
Coloured watch faces are another commendable style choice in McGregor’s fashion book. Most notably: his Everose Gold Rolex Day-Date. Opt for Kinyued’s automatic waterproof version in ocean blue for a pep in your step.
Subtle like Beckham
Beckham opts for less flashier styles, with designs that are always well-proportioned and sit elegantly on the wrist. Attain similar sartorial finesse with Emporio Armani’s smartwatch.
The best of both worlds
If you want to straddle both stylish worlds, wear a watch that is neither loud nor simple, just classic with a kick. The right watch style complements you, and your lifestyle. Xandr Axel’s formal mesh strap version is a perfect example.
