Japanese Watches
Step up your fashion game in 2019 by adding one of these 9 hottest Japanese watches into your accessory arsenal. Here are the hottest styles to look for.

In the realm of luxury watches, there are two main players when it comes to watching movements; the Swiss and the Japanese. While experts debate whether the workings of Swiss or Japanese watches are best, for most of us the difference between two watches comes from the styling, not the movement inside.

While Switzerland is home to household names like Rolex and Tag Heuer, Japanese watch brands include Seiko, Casio, and Citizen. If you’ve never really considered a Japanese watch before, here’s our pick of the top 9.

9 Best Japanese Watches

Perhaps the main difference between the two watch-making countries is that whilst the Swiss tend to follow tradition, Japanese watches have a reputation for technology. Whether you are looking for a watch with quartz or mechanical movement, there is something for you in this list.

1. Citizen Eco-Drive Titanium Perpetual Chronograph A-T Watch

You’ll never need to change the battery of this watch, as it is fitted with Citizen’s Eco-Drive technology. The internal lithium-ion cell is charged by converting light into energy. Considered one of the best Japanese watches for water sports and marine activities (but not scuba diving), it includes a one-second chronograph that will keep measuring for up to one hour.

2. Seiko SKX173 Stainless Steel and Black Polyurethane Automatic Dive Watch

Although they were first invented in Britain rather than Japan automatic watches are just as popular with Japanese manufacturers as they are in other countries. This model from Seiko is a true dive watch, suitable for depths down to 200m. Style hasn’t been sacrificed for performance, with the stainless steel casing contrasting with the black dial.

The classic diving look is complemented by a chunky strap. The display has hour markers, with minutes on the bezel, and a date window available in both English and Spanish.

3. G-Shock GA 100 Military Series Watch

Casio carved a name for style as a Japanese watch brand with its Casio G-Shock series. Their heavy-duty designs have made them popular with tough guys the world over, and the GA 100 is another of that type.

The design is all matte black, from the dial to the chunky resin band. The GA 100 has both analog and digital display and is fully programmable. It’s also shockproof and watertight to 200m if you live up to the action man look.

4. Citizen Eco-Drive Titanium Watch

The second from Citizen on this list, and another fitted with the eco-drive technology from this Japanese watch brand. Where this differs from the first watch, is that this model is styled for casual or dress wear, rather than for activity.

It has a titanium case with black dials and includes a chronograph. It’s also waterproof to 200m, but we wouldn’t recommend getting the leather strap wet. It also contains a date window and a low-charge indicator just in case you don’t get enough sunlight.

5. Orient Flight Stainless Steel Watch

Orient is the brand to turn to if you want something stylish and understated, but with consummate engineering. The design is fuss-free, with a blue dial and titanium case contrasting with a brown calfskin band.

The dial is uncluttered, containing only the clock face itself with an outer and inner dial and a date window. No need to worry about winding either, as this model contains Orient’s caliber 48743 automatic winding mechanism.

6. Orient Monarch Mechanical Hand Wind Watch

If you want to create a vintage look with a brand new timepiece then the Monarch is right up your street. It has a simple steel case and a domed glass, protecting the black dial which is decorated in a timeless style.

Orient Monarch Mechanical Hand Wind Watch
This is a hand wind watch, as befits the whole style. The simple black leather strap is the perfect finishing touch to this hat-tip to the classic watches of the past.

7. Citizen Eco-Drive Avion Sport Stainless Steel Watch

Another vintage-inspired piece, this one harks back to the 1950s. The black strap has contrasting white stitching, a color choice echoed in the dial and hands. Despite the classic look, it contains Citizen’s eco-drive and will self-charge from natural light.

Waterproof to 100m, the Avion also has 12 and 24-hour clock dials and a date window. It might look like it’s slipped from the wrist of a pioneering trans-Atlantic pilot, but the Avion is all modern under the hood.

8. Seiko 5 Automatic Stainless Steel Watch

Showing the versatility of Japanese watch brands, this model couldn’t be more different from Seiko’s other entrant onto this list. The 5 is an understated, military style watch that would look as good on your wrist on a night out as it would on a long hike.

Seiko 5 watch
With a brushed metal bezel and khaki strap and dial, the 5 has both inner and outer dials and a date window. Underneath the case is a 21-jewel automatic movement that means you’ll never need to stop and wind.

9. Orient Ray 2 Analog Japanese Automatic Silver Watch

An upgraded version of Orient’s best-seller, the Ray, they’ve upgraded the movement and added a hand-wind feature if you want to give the automatic winding a helping hand. If synching watches with others is useful for you, you can stop the second hand just by pulling out the crown.

Looks-wise, the Ray 2 is a slimmer version of the Ray. It has an attractive stainless steel bracelet and a blue face that echoes the Rolex Submariner. It includes a 120-click diving bezel, sword hands, and a date window.

Performance and Style

There’s no doubt, looking at this list, that Japanese watches can stand their ground when compared with models from any other maker around the world. A great watch is a combination of functional and stylish. It contains features that make life easier and blends well whether we’re working, socializing or getting out into nature.

If you’re noticing that your hair is beginning to thin out, or your hairline creeping back, don’t worry, you’re not alone!

There are ways in which you can help reduce the appearance of a receding hairline, volumize your hair and make you look younger. One such way is by considering a new hairstyle that can completely transform your look.

Let’s take a look at some that can help you look and feel younger!

1. The Comb Over

A comb-over is one of the most popular hairstyles for men who are losing hair. The style is parted at one side and the remaining hair on top is combed to one side, hence the name!

This can be done at either side and gives men the opportunity to cover their balding sports or their receding hairlines with the rest of their hair on top. It adds volume on top, giving the impression that you have more hair than you actually do.

You also have the choice of length on the sides, although if you’re looking for a more youthful look, it may be an idea to go short on the sides. If you’re more experimental, you can even shave in tramlines or patterns to spruce up the look a bit!

If you’re worried you haven’t got enough hair for this look, there are many professional, qualified businesses that can help, such as a Tampa hair restoration service. Although it’s the most expensive choice, getting a hair transplant is the more permanent solution, guaranteed to make a difference and solve your hairline problems.

2. Slick Back

Using quite a bit of hair product, follow your hairline and comb from the front to the back of your head to create a slick back look. This hairstyle is elegant, neat, and sophisticated and has been worn by many high-profile celebrities such as David Beckham, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Brad Pitt.

This hairstyle is great for men of all ages and is particularly useful if you’re aiming to highlight your widow’s peak.

3. Buzz Cut

The buzz cut has come back into fashion with a vengeance! Suitable for all age groups, the buzz cut is a fantastic way of eliminating the noticeability of a receding hairline or bald patches. By cutting your hair the same length all around the head, you’re making the thin and shorter parts of the hair less noticeable.

You don’t have to experience hair loss to have a buzz cut, but it may be useful to find out if you are losing hair to make it easier to maintain in the future. There are things to look out for if you think you may be losing your hair or your family are susceptible to male pattern baldness, so be sure to check them out!

The buzz cut creates a rugged, but simultaneously neat look, and it’s one of the easiest hairstyles to maintain!

4. Short on Top With A Beard

This is a very popular choice for men susceptible to male pattern baldness. Cutting your hair short on top has the same benefits as the buzz cut, making bald patches and receding hairlines less noticeable. But, by adding a beard, you can compensate for the lack of hair on top!

Growing a beard will draw attention away from the lack of hair on top and acts as more of a statement feature. Beard also opens up more styling options, so you can experiment with your look through facial hair instead of head hair.

5. Mohawk

You may look at that word and think: absolutely not. But, Mohawks come in many sizes and shapes and can be as eccentric or toned down as you wish. By concentrating your hair on the central strip of your head, you can cover bald spots and redirect attention away from bald spots and receding hairlines.

You can experiment with the back and sides and leave the top as long as you’d like!

Final Thoughts

Hair restorations are an easy, permanent solution to receding hairlines, but it’s not for everyone. So, any of these 5 hairstyles can help you hide your areas of concern and help you create a more youthful look!

What Are Tactical Pants?

Published

The type of apparel known as tactical trousers is unique. They have greater utility, are made of sturdy fabric, and feature a few extra components. Unlike camouflage pants, they are usually plain and are often suitable for wearing in both extreme and urban conditions. To take full advantage of all the benefits of tactical work pants, buy quality pants from the Galls brand.

What makes tactical pants different from regular pants?

There are several factors, each of which is important and without which tactical trousers would be the most common trousers.

● Practicality. Practical tactical gear pants are needed for tactical actions since you need to be effective. They serve to both hide your body and facilitate your performance. They must thus offer a certain degree of comfort, mobility, and well-designed pockets for transporting valuables. Design choices should be sensible, and there shouldn’t be any pointless components. Practicality and versatility are complementary traits.

● Multifunctionality. Widely adaptable tactical pants should enable you to distribute mission-critical gear to the front, rear, and sides as you see appropriate. Carrying equipment is crucial, but it’s not the only consideration. Furthermore, your pants should protect you from the environment and, most importantly, the opposition. In the end, you want useful pocket designs and materials that can withstand fire and water while still offering some degree of disguise.

● Durability. Military cargo pants need to be strong and able to take more strain than typical. These are work clothing that you wear under challenging circumstances; they are subjected to filth, abrasion, chemical and physical elements, as well as UV radiation. Dynamic tactical circumstances frequently call for quick mobility and repositioning. The groin and knee regions frequently experience the most strain and rip the fastest. For this reason, you need materials that are dependable and long-lasting, such as ripstop textiles and combinations of materials like nylon and cotton or polyester and cotton.

4 Tips To Dress For Success: Men’s Edition

Published

Making a good first impression by dressing up could make or break a deal. And in today’s work-from-home world, dressing for success even means putting some thought in, albeit for your reflection in the mirror.

As psychologists report, over and over – success starts with your mindset, and your mind cares about how you feel. So, if you feel successful and you look like success, who’s to stop you?

Are you really selling it with the way you dress? Below are 4 tips to dress for success!

1. Don’t Wear a Clip-On Tie

Clip-on ties are out. In the professional realm, they’re viewed as a lazy alternative to learning to tie a tie. What’s more, a clip-on gives such a poor first impression that it could be your potential employer’s subconscious “no” to your otherwise sturdy resume.

So, if you have a birthday coming up and are looking for gifts for the stylish man, a fancy tie is the way to go.

If neither you nor your man knows how to tie a tie, check out a YouTube tutorial. It will take practice to get it down right, but there’s no excuse to use a clip-on.

2. Stick to Classic Shirts

It’s a good idea to have shirts that will resist the test of time.

Start off with a neutral-colored shirt if you’re at a loss as to how to create an outfit. Neutral colors include black, gray, white, brown, and navy. Lightweight linen is a good option for a more relaxed but dressy look.

Neutrals are timeless because you can wear them in any season. Plus, they look great with either a suit or jeans. Neutral-colored classic shirts are also easy to match, and you can dress up or down with accessories.

Make sure your shirts are well-fitted to ensure a clean and polished look.

3. Iron Your Clothes

It may not seem like a big deal, but making sure your clothing is clean and pressed actually makes a huge difference. Washing your clothes isn’t enough to make them look fresh and neat.

Ironing your clothes does more for your appearance than just removing wrinkles. You get a more sophisticated look, plus ironing increases your clothes’ longevity because of the high temperature that removes bad smells, protects the lining, and seals the fabric.

4. Get a Pair of Nice Shoes

Your shoes are a basic part of your outfit that makes a huge difference to your look. When looking for a pair of shoes, pick something that will go with many types of events and occasions.

Black or brown shoes go well with a wide range of colors. Go extreme and opt for black or cream, and you should still be able to coordinate with anything in your closet.

For casual days, choose elegant sneakers. They’re trendy but still dressy enough to go with your outfit.

And of course, take good care of your shoes so they last you years. Keep the leather and suede in good condition by polishing and shining from time to time. Invest in a cleaning kit to give your shoes the care they deserve – they take you everywhere!

Final Thoughts

Staying up-to-date with the hamster wheel of style trends as a successful man is nearly impossible. However, using a couple of tricks of the trade to keep your closet timeless and functional can make styling your outfits easy. You might even find yourself the best-dressed man in the room.

Take a step in the right direction – your success might just start in your closet!
