7 Beginner tips on wearing your watch with bracelets
Keep bracelets to a minimum
No.1 principle. Keep it to a minimum. If you are not Tom Hardy or David Beckham, walking pheromones, don't try to stack your bracelets with a watch or don't even try to stack your bracelets.
Stick with one arm
This could be a no-brainer, but many of us may forget, sometimes neglect. A leather band watch goes with leather bracelets, a metal band watch goes with metal bracelets, a gold watch goes with a gold chain or gold beaded bracelets, and vice versa.
Watch with Bracelets: Match Materials
Our classic 925 silver beads matches with silver watches perfectly. We bring you this howlite bracelet, a wardrobe essential for every gentleman.
Don't be too extra
Before styling your watch with bracelets, you first need to decide who is the main character. If you wear a gold Audemars Piguet's Royal Oak, you can simply match a 4mm gold beaded bracelet. If you wear a VC Traditionnelle 82172, a low-key gentleman type of watch, you could match one leather bracelet and a gold beaded bracelet.
Go with similar colors
Aside from matching the materials, you can always find a little more detail to match your watch with bracelets. If you have a blue dial watch, you can match your watch with a bracelet of Lapis beads. If you wear a dark brown band watch, you can match it with a beaded bracelet of tiger eye. Beaded bracelets have many colors or styles to match your watch.
Watch with Bracelets: Similar Colors
The light brown and gold outlook of the bracelet has similar color as gold and bronze watches. They match with each other effortlessly, and is best worn with a darker warm color outfit.
Bracelets go before a watch
The use of these accessories closest to your hand guarantees that the bracelet and watch are mutually complementary and neither component takes the stage from the other. So, keep your bracelet before your watch. This will keep your bracelet from getting overshadowed by a bulky watch, and you’ll feel much more comfortable that way.
Give them spacing
A typical error made by many when combining a wrist with a watch is that the armbands are too near to the watch. This often results in making the bracelets hiding underneath the watch, which looks very odd. When wearing your watch and bracelets on the same wrist, the best method is to leave a small gap between each of them.

Here I would recommend 2 ways to wear them. One, the highlight mixing, is to focus on a bracelet and the rest of them have to be in smaller diameter or a similar color. Another, the parallel mixing, is to make a mix of three bracelets or up. Select only 4-5mm sizes bracelets, and the total length should not exceed 2.5 inches or 6 cm.
