Wristwatches are so… passé. For one thing, they’ve been around since our parents were kids. Most people want something newer, something different.

For those of you who want to walk on the darker side, give the gothic look a shot. And not that emo crying mascara and whiny music, either. Goth means darkness, figuratively and literally. We’re talking baroque colors, vampires, werewolves (not the glittery six-pack kind, Stephanie Meyer) and lots of metal. Gothic watches come on either chains or heavy leather bracers, and you should expect spikes and knobby steel bits. Dark leather, metal and skulls are the hallmarks of the gothic style. Black will be your new favorite color, so embrace the night.
So if you’re looking for a few ways to accessorize your new look, go no further. Just because your parents wore watches doesn’t mean you have to look like they did. Seriously, disco? Really?

Here’s a tip for a watch that your kid is sure to love: take a look at a covered watch. Covered watches have a cover that opens on a hinge to reveal the time. This protects the face of the watch from getting dirty. It also allows you to get a watch for them that is part bracelet, part watch. When the cover is open, they can see the time. But while the cover is closed, some of them look like a bracelet.
For kids, some of the best covered watches are the ones that have a cartoon character on the front, like the Snoopy wrist watch. They are also a great first watch for a kid, because they’re fairly inexpensive and the cover protects the watch face. If your kid has a tendency to scuff things up, this will be the perfect watch for them because it the cover will protect the watch face from scratches.
