Different brownsAll sorts of watches look great in brown. And brown leather straps come in a great variety of shades, finishes, and fades. From lighter, smooth tan shades to textured finishes which remind you of chocolate bits, the leather straps attached to these pieces enhance the watch itself. Diver watches, car racing watches, chronograph watches, they all rock the brown.
Metal colours Similarly, all metals look and go great with brown leather. Whether it's a stainless steel polished, matte, anodized black, yellow gold, diamond embellished, or gunmetal type, they are all able to shine and become more noticeable when standing against brown. The resilience and sleek look of the metallic watch can be balanced with the warmth and versatility of a brown leather strap.
A dress watchWhile a dress watch's purpose is to be able to tell the time, it's not a matter of life and death such as it is in a diver's watch. Super precise, luminous, and added features are not usual in a dress watch's functionality repertoire. Dress watches are supposed to show class, simplicity, and sleekness. In the same way, dress watches should be traditionally worn on a natural "skin" strap. Brown leather adds a richness and snug feel similar to that of a pair of fine brown leather shoes. You should be getting compliments on the simplicity and look of your watch.
Matching outfits with leatherA suit, tie and brown dress shoes will always look great with a men's brown leather strap watch. Business or formal outfits should ideally have matching type, texture, and colour of the leather. For a business casual look, a brown leather jacket and a men's brown leather strap watch can make a great match with a white dress shirt and a tie. In a business casual look, the "belt must match shoes" rule can be bent. If the leather items don't match in the same exact colour, at the very least the items should complement each other in leather texture and look.
To match a casual outfit with leather accessories, there are not many rules you should follow. Typically, it's best to keep the number of leather shades to a minimum when you're wearing jeans, and it's better to match the leather textures rather than colour. If your leather wallet sports the same shade and texture as your dress watch, consider yourself lucky, but remember you don't need to match your watch to your wallet as much as you should be paying attention to the rest of your clothes.
