If you’re going to a semi-formal or relaxed formal event and would like to project an air of quiet confidence, class, and calm sophistication, you only need to strap the Tommy Hilfiger Men’s 1790874 Watch creation on and you’re good to go. Long known as one of the biggest purveyors of an all-American confident look, Tommy Hilfiger’s timepieces employs his unique knack for packing lots of class and sophistication into a package without resorting to being loud, tacky, overbearing, or otherwise coming off as having to prove something.
The 1790874 timepiece embodies all of the classic Hilfiger touches that make for a nice addition to your accessories collection. In fact, this timepiece is so well put together and understated enough to become your ‘go to’ watch for semi-formal or ‘casual formal’ events. You’d look great wearing this timepiece applying for a job as you would enjoying dinner with your boss and co-workers.
Calm, understated, and confident, this is one timepiece you should turn to if you’d like to showcase your personal elegance without having to come off like you’re out to prove something. Quite a necessity (and sadly, an increasing rarity) in this day and age where it seems more and more watch fans are falling for the trap that ‘louder’ is ‘better.’
Hilfiger 1790874 Design: Dress Watch
Don’t let the designation ‘dress watch’ fool you. Don’t think for a moment that this Tommy Hilfiger model’s ‘dress watch’ classification means you can only wear it to funerals, weddings, and job interviews. It is understated and sleek enough to look great in a wide range of occasions. For example, you’d look great sitting down for a home-cooked dinner with your friends with the 1790874 on your wrist. Similarly, you can make the right impression in a wide range of semi-formal settings without feeling overdressed or awkward and out of place. The calfskin adds an added layer of bespoke charm.
Personally, the one thing that got me to respect this unit’s full value is the deftness it pulls off its gold color. You just have to give it to the Hilfiger design team. The intensity and brightness of the gold color of this watch doesn’t come off as gaudy, cheap, or in any way ‘over the top.’ This alone is worth a ton of kudos. Gold finishes, in watches at least, require tight attention to detail and a deep understanding of a watch’s target market. Otherwise, it would be too easy to stray into ‘tacky’ style territory.
Movement Type: Quartz
Considering the fact that this watch is both stylish and won’t land you in the poorhouse, you have to expect that there is one feature that would make lower pricing possible. In the 1790874’s case, its quartz movement enables it to be more affordable. Given how sleek, stylish, and nuanced the color tone selection of this gold dress watch is, if Hilfiger had designed it with automatic movement, this model would easily price many of its intended audience out.
1790874 Special Features: Dual time
By this point in the review, you are probably already thinking that the great combination of low price, understated yet calm confident elegance, and, of course, the Hilfiger brand would make this watch a shoo-in as far as your dress watch selection process goes. Well, all that is true but wait… there’s more. The Hilfiger watch design team also designed dual time capabilities to this model. Talk about a handy feature. If you travel between different time zones frequently, this feature will definitely make time adjustment less of a headache.
If you are looking for a watch that speaks to your personal elegance, understated charm, and classy sensibilities, you simply can’t go wrong with the Tommy Hilfiger Men’s 1790874 Watch. Regardless of your budget, this watch should be at the top of your dress watch options because it is so affordable and well put-together as far as looks go. A solid choice indeed!
