TEMPO WATCHES

Despite the present-day convenience of checking your phone every time you want to know the time, there’s been something of a wristwatch renaissance lately. We’re not talking about the digital LED sport watches or fitness bands you see on athletes, but the ticking timepieces that now grace the wrists of discerning men of all ages.

The trouble often lies in selecting a quality timepiece that’s functional and reliable, yet doesn’t submit to trendy clichés that’ll banish the thing to the bottom of your cupboard by next season. In the spirit of stylish functionality, weather you’re in the office or out on the streets – these Tempo watches will ensure that you’re never late and with a look that’s never out of place.

  • GET GROOMED: ALL ABOUT EYES

ALL ABOUT EYES!

If you’re already moisturizing your face, adding a different hydrating agent under your eyes might seem superfluous.

But if you’ve ever used an eye product, whether after a big night out or just a late haul at the office, you probably already know they have their purposes – specifically, in terms of making you look less dogtired. But, with all sorts of formulations (gels, serums, creams, balm), it’s hard to figure out which one to use right?

Wrong. It’s quite simple – the one for you depends on your age, skin type and final goal.

  • BEARD LOVE: WINTER BEARD CARE

BEARD LOVE WITH EDGARS!

It’s fair to say that beards are back in a big way – particularly so at this time of year.

But men growing longer facial-hair in winter is an age-old tradition. It just feels like the appropriate time of year to forsake formality in favor of comfort, doesn’t it? Case in point: the winter beard. But it’s not as simple as tossing out your razor.

Here’s what you need to show your beard some love…

DIESEL ON!

2017 is set to be a big year for smartwatches. Android Wear 2.0 has finally landed, we’re expecting to see even more hybrid smartwatches – watches that blur traditional designs with contemporary fitness tracking and notification tech – and you can bet your money we’ll be seeing follow-ups.

Add some high-tech style with signature Diesel attitude to your wardrobe with the Diesel On Time hybrid smartwatch. The device itself is typically Diesel – bulky and industrial while still offering a stylish build. In terms of smarts, the On watches come with basic activity tracking and notifications, while the two ‘pushers’ on either side of the crown can be assigned to specific tasks.

Whether you’re style obsessed or want something that’s good at tracking your steps without hammering the battery, this is the one.

THE WATCH EDITION

With everyone connected at the hip to a smartphone these days you always know the time – with or without a wristwatch. While the traditional timekeeper may no longer be needed to track the hours and the minutes it certainly hasn’t lost its relevance in a mans wardrobe.

A watch wields a significant amount of power in a small package. It doesn’t just tell the time, it says a lot about the person wearing it. No matter what watch you wear, you’re making a statement about who you are and what’s important to you.

We collaborated with Watch Republic, Sterns and Nixon to bring you an updated selection of the best contemporary styles. Whether your horological requirements extend to Smart innovation, understated elegance or mod and trendy – we’ve got you and your wrist covered.
