Joel Wade Watches | Modern, Affordable Sophistication
Known for their smart, modern take on men’s accessories like cufflinks, pocket squares and lapel pins, Australian brand Joel Wade is expanding their sophisticated offering with a line of wristwatches. Just launched on Kickstarter, the watches prove to be a faithful addition to the range of elegant pieces that the brand excel in designing.
With an entirely premium look yet highly accessible price point, the new Joel Wade watches exude sophistication, but in a wholly modern way. Available are three different designs, each with some subtle differences to appeal to different tastes. The silver / black iteration features a combination of numeric and lined markings, as well as a small date display. It has the most contemporary look out of the collection, thanks to its numeric indicators and modern colour combination. Also included in the range is a sleek rose gold / brown model. Ditching all numbers, this watch prefers to keep its dial minimal with only lined markings and a small date display. The rose gold / brown watch has the kind of versatility that would see it feel equally at home in either casual, smart casual or formal occasions. Rounding out the range is the elegant gold / black watch. The timepiece’s premium gold detailing contrasted against the deep black of the dial and band gives it a very high-end look. It’s topped off with a very minimal dial, utilising a combination of roman numerals, lined markings and no date display.
Each Joel Wade watch is crafted with premium grade leather for the straps and 316L stainless steel for the casing. Using high-quality materials such as these ensures the pieces remain durable and can withstand years of wear. 3ATM water resistance also makes them ideal for daily wear, as they’ll hold up through hand washing and splashes. Japanese movements are used for the mechanics of the watches, guaranteeing precision and accuracy. These movements are also to thank for the watch’s slim profile, which is great not only because it gives them a much more contemporary look, but also because they don’t weigh down your wrist.
With a super classy and elegant aesthetic, it’s hard to go wrong with one of Joel Wade’s new watches. Ideal to have in your regular rotation of timepieces or simply as a special occasion accessory, these watches are the epitome of affordable, modern sophistication.
