Which watch size to choose?

This criterion doesn't necessarily seem to be obvious when you buy a watch, even more so if you buy it online, but the size of the dial is very important and plays on the style. Some are very prominent and others much thinner.

Start by taking your wrist measurement. Generally men have a wrist of 15 to 19 cm, just provide yourself with a tape measure. Then you have to ask yourself which style you like, rather imposing or discreet? As a general rule, we advise you to go for models where the size of the case corresponds to your morphology. A small wrist can appear crushed by a too big case and vice versa.

To give you an idea:

  • If your wrist is less than 15 cm, we advise you to avoid dials larger than 40 mm.
  • If your wrist measures more than 18 cm, choose a dial with a diameter of 42 mm.
  • Watch out for the horns that may protrude from your wrist, check that they do not protrude too much.

At D.W.Y.T., the dial size is indicated on all product sheets to help you with your order.

How to wear a wooden watch?

Among the many advantages of an eco-friendly watch, the fact that it can be worn with everything and fits all styles is one of the main ones. Here are a few tips on how to combine your watch and its strap according to your style:

  • Trapper style: you are more of a fan of comfortable clothing, so you wear big shoes and checked shirts most of the time. Opt for the Toudra Nato modelIts clear maple wood case fits perfectly with your style. To match the colours of your outfits, choose one of the many interchangeable bracelets. If your closet is full of beige to brown clothes, choose a camel brown.
    If you're more into blue tones, go for a midnight blue. Finally, if you like to stand out from the crowd with an accessory that hits the bull's eye, try a vermilion red.
  • Old school style: you like long wool coats, leather shoes and pinch pants. We advise you to start with a classic but very refined model such as the Marco PoloWith its chronograph, it approaches a resolutely old school style. To associate it with your outfits we advise you to choose the bracelet Black liquorice or tobacco brown to stay in your style.

Generally speaking, if you wear dark colours, opt for light dials to assert your style and make your watch stand out, and vice versa. If you like to wear your jackets and waistcoats rather short on the sleeves, choose a rather imposing dial, it will make its effect and stand out even better.
About our leather bracelets for men you can be more fanciful and choose sometimes more original colours such as red or green.

Which leather bracelet to choose?

Once you have chosen the style of your future watch as well as its case and dial colour, you may wonder which leather strap to choose?

At D.W.Y.T. there are two types of leather straps for men that can fit the different wooden cases in the Forest & Lakes range: the flash pumps and the Nato. Both types of bracelets are made of genuine leather, and are distinguished by their attachment systems and differences in surface and texture. Each item sold can benefit from several different bracelets.

The flash pump leather straps have a very strong quick-release fastener system that allows you to change the strap as well as the shirt. It consists of two parts to be clipped on each side of your watch. Ideal if you change your style often and want a quick solution. The flash pumps are available in different colours to suit your everyday life.
The Sapphire Blue flash pump for example fits elegantly into all ranges of maple or walnut cases. It's a classic, no risk of false notes when wearing it.
Those in caramel or sepia colours will seduce all vintage fans, who like to wear a colour palette from beige to brown. These are bold choices with a worked and grained texture, bringing a lot of relief and character of their own.
If you like originality, go for cardinal red! He'll give your wrist a shine! Finally, colours such as grey or black will adapt to all your outfits and all dial and case colours. Don't be afraid of associations and change them as you wish.

The Nato bracelets historically come from the British army who wanted to have all-weather watch bracelets for their soldiers. Resistant both in terms of solidity but also to external aggressions such as humidity. It consists of a single part in leather to gain strength. To hang it, simply slide it into the clips on your case. Nato Imperial Green is a timeless elegance and goes very well with a dark wood like walnut. A Camel will go perfectly with a light wood case for a vintage look or a trapper style. If you want a more passe-partout colour, opt for a midnight blue or black. Being interchangeable, it is possible to change them every day very easily.

All D.Y.W.T. models are compatible with our men's leather straps, just make your choice from our colour palette.
