Wearing a black tuxedo or suit is going for the classic look among all classics. Most people that have to wear one for a special occasion are usually also searching for something to take that utterly classic look to the next level by adding a touch of something different, an edge that can introduce a sense of the ‘modern’ and make us unique. The moment you sport that iconic outfit, you are immediately pitching yourself against heavyweight champions like Sean Connery or Pierce Brosnan. What could be a game changer for you? Well, a wooden watch can be that single additional element that lifts your presence to the very next level.
When you are wearing jet black there are few accessories that can enhance your look more than black and silver. You can always go for gold, but there is a very fine line between being stylish and elegant and being completely out of place. The perfect match for a black tuxedo or suit has to be the Seventh SKYLAR. The ideal blend of a black ebony strap and a silver timepiece make this watch the ultimate addition to a jet-black outfit. Besides its aesthetic qualities, this watch, like all Seventh timepieces is completely handcrafted and manufactured without harming the environment. Finally, it is also a reminder to stay humble, as its name implies, and remain a scholarly learner all your life.
Some people don´t approve of brown shoes and belt with a black suit. If you are one of the lucky ones in favor of pulling off this traditional look, then the perfect, complimentary accessory is the Seventh KAIROS. This watch is made from precious Sandalwood and has been used by elitists the world over for thousands of years to build furniture of exceptional quality. The combination of the silver watch and the reddish-brown strap can work wonders when combined with a nice pair of shoes and a matching belt. The lustrous aspect of the watch compliments the leather shoes effortlessly and will undoubtedly become the center of the conversation as it peers out from the end of your sleeve. KAIROS means action and the manufacturer´s idea is that you take inspiration for action every time you glance down at your wrist.
With the Seventh ETHOS you get the best of both worlds because the watch is made of a beautiful combination of dark, natural wood and a strap of jet-black leather. It is a little more attention-grabbing than the previous two watches because it contains no metal! It is made entirely of wood. Out in the public arena, all attention will be drawn to this uniquely unusual and captivating timepiece. Because the watch is made to embody the principal of ETHOS in life, it can be a great reminder in tough times about always striving to do the right thing. Blending blacks, whites, and natural wood colors is a match made in heaven that can elevate the classic black suit and a white shirt to the next level in fashion and style.
This square-shaped, Sandalwood watch provides us with the boldest look of all. The very shape of the watch is already a novelty, but if you add to that the fact that it is entirely made of wood without using any nickel, things get so much more interesting. The coloring of the sandalwood from which it is constructed is not bright and orangey like the KAIROS; it is dark sandalwood, completely hand rubbed to give an even more textured, matte finish. This watch is amazingly versatile because it can be worn with whatever colors you like: black, brown and even white. When a square-shaped watch peers out of anyone´s sleeve, people tend to pay special attention but when that timepiece is made of such rich, dark sandalwood, it becomes unmistakable. This is all part of creating that classic image with an added sense of the unique and modern; creating the whole sense of style – the suit, the watch, the individual. Finally, the THRÁSOS, like all other Seventh watches, is a luxurious timepiece that stands up well next to much more expensive, traditional watches, yet at a fraction of the price.
With all these models we have discussed, you can play your part by stepping up and becoming an ambassador for change. People tend to be more interested in checking the price tag of goods than checking their moral and ecologic value. With Seventh watches, it is completely the opposite, because you can help the environment and raise awareness about a novel and interesting way of manufacturing watches by just telling others about their existence. If people become aware that you are wearing your unique timepiece and they are impressed by the fact that you look incredibly fashionable and utterly cool, then take the opportunity to extoll the benefits of investing in such a top-quality watch. Never blend into the crowd ever again with a Seventh on your left wrist.
Wooden watches are not a passing fad but are here to stay. Adding them to a classic look like a black tuxedo or suit is to go against the grain and generate a change for the better in others. Don´t let the chance of being trendy and also doing something good for the world go by; tackle two birds with one stone - wear the change on your wrist. Next time you decide to put on an elegant outfit, accessorize it in the best way possible and show everyone which path to follow for a better world.
