Watches do more than just show you the time… there are watches that can give you the altitude, watches inspired from popular brands and personalities and watches that can make a style statement like no other. Sorting through to find the right one can get overwhelming and so, Rhea Dhanbhoora & Dev Goswami bring you a range of options in different styles that will suit different budgets

American actor Colin Hanks once said, “I collect watches because I'm always late, and I need to know exactly how late I'm going to be — in order to come up with a good excuse.” And that, we feel, perfectly sums up our everyday life. After all, aren’t we always habitually consulting our wrists to check the time, even when we’re not wearing our watches? But, watches are so much more than the humble timepieces they started off as. From classy to casual and extravagant to affordable, here are a few that you should consider buying:

CASUAL From everyday wear to causal meet ups with friends and family, these watches will be perfect for such occasions.
