Find your watch style

Hello everyone,

Finding the perfect watch is a key decision for all of us. When doing it, we have to evaluate its characteristics, functions and overall its style. Furthermore, there are many watch styles, so before choosing "the one" it is important to know them all so that we can be 100% sure it fits our personality!  

In today's post we will tell you all the style of watches you can find at Iguana Sell. Don't miss it!

Classic

Let's begin with the classics! They are the perfect watches for any occasion, those that can't never go wrong. This is why houses like Montblanc, Eterna, Raymond Weil or Frederique Constant choose this style for the majority of their models.

Their designs are clean and elegant, making them both a functional piece and an accessory. Their dials always have an attractive design and you can find them with leather straps and stainless steel bracelets.

For those who love modern classics, we suggest Junghans, Eberhard or Montegrappa.

GMT

GMT watches were invented so that travelers could know what time it was in two countries at the same time.

You can differentiate these watches because of their dial. All of them feature a third hand, normally in red, which tells the time on a second time zone. An exception is the Adhaesio line by Meistersinger, capable of telling this second time zone with just one hand.

If you love this system, we invite you to check out our Ball Engineer Master II, Eterna Royal Kontiki or Visconti Earth Dual Time!

Aviator

This style was invented to help pilots when flying, allowing them to calculate the time left until they arrived to their destiny.

Many brands design their aviator watches using pilots tips and advice. We have to stand out the Airman and Airfighter lines by Glycine and the incredible Aeromaster collection by Fortis!

Sport

The sport style is one of the favorites when choosing the perfect watch. They are usually inspired in motor racing and red, white and black dominate their designs.

At Iguana Sell you may find a wide variety of sport watches. Don't miss out on Alpina, Momo and Porsche Design. These two last brands were born in the world of motor racing. This is why these pieces usually include additional functions like chronometer & tachymeter.

Divers

Lastly in the related to sport watches, we introduce the diver style. Many brands include water resistance in their watches, allowing us to dive, snorkel...

Diver watches usually have big cases, with a very resistant glass. Furthermore, they usually include a rotating bezel that tells us how much time we have been diving. These pieces normally have Superluminova, allowing us to read time under water.

If this is your style, in your collection you must have a Glycine Combat Sub, or a Sinn Diver U1 or U2

Field watches

Field watches were invented in 1880 to help militaries in the field. They became popular during the First World War due to soldiers demands for liable and easy to wear pieces. Trench war required quick and synchronized moves, this is why these watches are normally small.

Furthermore, trenches required watches that were resistant to water and bumps. Field watches developed quickly a distinctive style: Robust, functional and without many trims.

Luminox is the best representation of these style with its models Atacama and Land Field

Functional

If you are of those who believe purchasing a watch is simply about reading time, Braun and Mondaine are your brands.

Their designs are sober and timeless, and quality always goes first. This is why they usually feature additional functions like chronograph, a third second hand and even digital systems.

Single-hand

Simplicity becomes watch with single-hands models. This style is capable of doing their function with just a single-hand.

Thought for those who enjoy each second, each bar on its dial represents five minutes, making these watches easier to read that what they look like.

Their original design has made them the best piece for both collectionists and modern.

If you love these watches, choose Meistersinger.

Skeleton 

Skeleton watches are those in which a cut in the dial shows the watch's movement. Sometimes it's the whole dial, while others there's just a small cut allowing us to enjoy its mechanism. 

To discover amazing skeleton watches, check out Les Originales Jura collection by Rotary and Masterpiece Gravity by Maurice Lacroix.

Smartwatch

Lastly, in a technological world there had to be SmartWatchs. These watches have the peculiarity of synchronizing our smartphones with the Android system.

Their additional functions vary, but these watches usually have functions such as tracking of our activity, sleep, notification of our phone messages, cloud storage, smart alarms and automatic adaptation to time zones.

Looked good on delivery, now looks great with black steel !

I'm really pleased with my new bronze metris...I hadn't seen one in real life due to lockdown but was pleased with it when it arrived. The blue face is really dark...almost black.....but contrasts really well with the bronze case and numerals. The standard leather strap was a little disappointing in colour and fit but £25 for a black steel bracelet and it now looks and feels great!!

I love this pen...perfect weight. Perhaps I would like a more chunkier one soon....still experimenting before i make a bigger purchase

Citizen Promaster NY0071-81E

As a large fan of dive watches, this mechanical promaster variant in titanium, does not disappoint. Exceptionally light, form, fit and function, absolutely fantastic. Much better attention to detail ( indices and rotating bezel alignment with chapter ring) than some Seiko comparable models.
Seemingly on paper a large watch, wears very well, not conspicuous at all in my 5 Ft 7 inch opinion. Great lime, long lasting and running at constant +10 seconds a day.
Definitely recommend this watch and the excellent customer experience of Iguana Sell.

Visconti Van Gogh Wheatfield with Crows Set

A very nice fountain pen feels very nice in the hand, comes well presented with a bottle of ink to start you off. I was kept fully informed of the progress of my order and as such I have ordered a second fountain pen.

Avi-8 P51 Mustang

This is my 2nd watch purchase from Iguana Sell. Due to unfortunate circumstances beyound Iguana Sells hands, I was kept in contact regarding the delivery of my P51 Mustang watch. Heavy snow as well as teething problems due to Brexit delayed delivery, but I have become quite patient over the past few months. The watch is amazing Avi-8 have surpassed themselves. I love the aviation theme previously buying their automatic Spitfire watch.
