Guess makes holding back fashion obsolescence fun and stylish
The world of fashion and fashion accessories can be a fickle one. One year, it seems everyone can’t get enough of a brand. That year, everyone is either talking about the brand or wearing a wide range of products that sports that brand. The next year, well, everyone it seemed got collective amnesia and have moved on to the latest craze, in this case it happens to be the GUESS Men’s U0247G3 Watch. You probably had experienced this first hand. You know how annoying it can be to fail to keep up with the ‘latest and greatest’ fashion trend and its champion brands. Whether we’re talking about pants, shirts, headgear, footwear, to almost anything you can wear, this same reality holds. Fashion can be as temporary as the morning mist evaporating come noontime in the summer.
It’s too easy to get excited about hot new brand trends and spend your precious cash catching up to the latest style only to find out that you made it to the train station too late. The fashion bandwagon train has moved on and has left you-all decked out in yesterday’s hot brand-all alone and desperate at the station. Annoying? Yes. Frustrating. You got it. All too common? Sadly, this is the case with most consumers and hot fashion trends. It seems that too many brands out there, whether in terms of basic fashion or accessories, have the lifespan of a fruitfly.
The Guess U0247G3 manages to stay stylish despite changing tastes
Thankfully, there are certain fashion and accessory brands that are immune to the fickle and ever-changing tastes of consumers. You can safely bank on these brands and be confident that you won’t be that dude who shows up at a party with clothes and a hairstyle that was all the rage five years ago. There’s none of those surprises with Guess’ men’s timepiece line, especially the U0247G3 model. How Guess pulls this off is actually a tribute to this brand’s staying power. Lesser brands have become obscure-almost overnight. It seems no matter how many times rappers mention such forgotten or now cheesy and ridiculous brands in their rhymes, they can’t resist the relentless forward march of changing consumer trends. What’s Guess’ secret? Simple. It sticks to classic elements.
It all boils down to classic watch details
You mgiht be scratching your heard after you read the stuff above. Guess? Classic? You might be asking all this in disbelief because Guess, after all, has made quite a reputation for itself as a brand that pushes the envelope and celebrates the ‘newness’ and ‘daring’ of being ‘hip’ and ‘trendy.’ Indeed, these are precisely the elements that made Guess the upstart design label that made jeans sexy and exciting again in 1981. Considering how cutthroat and fast moving fashion trends are, you really have to marvel at how Guess was able to remain relevant all these years. Well, its ‘secret’ can be seen in its watches.
Take the case of the GUESS Men’s U0247G3 Watch. On its face, you can see the hallmarks of Guess’ brash design-the rose tint, the textured blue silicone inner body, the silicone strap, and the unisex confidence of it all. Other brands can easily fail with this design. They can easily come off as gaudy or appear like they are over reaching. Not Guess. Guess is able to weave seemingly ‘off’ design elements into a well put together package that not only crows about a lifestyle that bucks the conventional and humdrum but also radiates classic craftsmanship elements like face style and design that turns heads. It is this razor’s edge straddling of the seemingly gaudy and loud with the tight packaging and overall concentrated messaging of personal style that defines Guess. This is precisely the brand message that has made Guess relevant all these years. It sure has come a long way from making jeans with that cool question mark logo in the back. Guess, as evidenced by its Men’s U0247G3 model, has put its distinctive stamp on the world of timepieces. People who are looking for a hip way to stand out from the crowd and still remain relevant for many years definitely have a great option with Guess’ watch line. Well-played, gentlemen!
Detailed Review & My Impressions
Sporty, elegant, and confident, the U0247G3 Watch offers guys who are looking for something different, the kind of watch they can turn to reliably when out looking to make a great impression.
If you are looking to make it clear to anyone looking that you cut a different figure than the typical dude or you just want to attract attention the right way, you can’t go wrong with this timepiece from one of the most recognized names in the world of fashion-Guess.
Design: Men’s casual watch
Casual watch design is all about projecting a laid back attitude. The GUESS Men’s U0247G3 definitely does this. It simply doesn’t look like your typical sports watch nor does it look anywhere close near the standard men’s watch or dress watch. It has, after all a rose gold bezel, a blue top ring, and, if all these features aren’t ‘interesting’ enough for you, the whole package is topped off with a textured blue dial and blue top ring.
Despite all the ‘over the top’ features of this watch, you are still ‘brought back’ to the classical elements of typical casual watch design like the mineral dish window, day, date and 24 hour subdials and the analog display. It is precisely this interplay between the familiar and the ‘new’ that makes this Guess timepiece so enchanting. While it would probably not be your top choice when picking out a watch for your next job interview, it definitely does an awesome job of making your personality shine out in a more casual setting.
Movement Type: Quartz
Given the great blend of conventionality and daring design, you would be right to expect this package to cost quite a bit. After all, more luxurious watch brands have experimented with really bold color designs and face textures for a long time. Well, the great news is thanks to this watch’s quartz movement, you can look like a stylish maverick without having to spend an arm and a leg.
When it comes to most watch designs, the type of movement the watch has disproportionately impacts its pricing. This is definitely the case with the U0247G3. You get the irreverent and ‘pushing the envelope’ attitude without having to fork over serious bucks. This is quite a coup if you ask me. All this is made possible by this unit’s quartz movement.
Special Features: Unconventional eclectic design
True to its billing as a sportswatch or casual wear watch, this timepiece tolerates moisture as deep as 100 meters. While this is definitely a very welcome feature, I decided to list its design as this watch’s top special feature. Why? Very few watchmakers can deftly pull off what Guess did with this watch.
Obviously, this watch, with its rose gold face and its texture is meant for guys who want to stand out from the crowd. It is definitely intended for the ‘anything but generic’ crowd. While the audience targeting is not new, the way it was executed in a nicely packaged unit that makes its seemingly incongruous features work. I suspect many guys who were initially put off by how unconventional this watch looks will make it their preferred choice-especially when they are out trying to come off as something ‘different from the crowd.’
Make no mistake about it, the GUESS Men’s U0247G3 Watch with a rose gold face is not for everyone. You have to have a lot of confidence and must be quite comfortable in your own skin to wear this watch. And this is precisely the reason guys who are looking to project lots of quiet internal power and calm need to consider this watch closely. Guess scores another win with this timepiece!
