Watches are an 'ultimate' accessory

When it comes to corporate style, an oversized wristwatch is "still the ultimate look-at-me" option to consider, according to one editor.

LS:N Global editor James Walman told the New York Times that watches are an accessory that have stood the test of time.

For many people, he explained, the traditional wristwatch as a timepiece is a redundant concept - it can be more convenient to check the time on a mobile phone, for example.

But a watch still holds plenty of clout as a status symbol - a fact that anyone considering corporate gift options would do well to consider.

Watches can be an excellent way to honour a dedicated employee's hard work and are a particularly popular gift at long service awards ceremonies.

As we enter into a new year, it may be time to consider which members of your staff are approaching important milestones - perhaps 20 or even 30 years of continuous service.

Watches are a brilliant corporate gift because they can be personalised in so many ways - for example, you may choose to inscribe the timepiece with the recipient's name or feature your company logo to honour their dedication.
