Looking for a watch that gives you an air of understated elegance and a genteel appeal? Have you been looking for a wardrobe accessory item that channels a lot of the classical designs of an earlier ‘preppy’ age? Do you want a watch that can make you look classy without burning a hole through your pocket?
If any of the above applies to you, you need to check out Tommy Hilfiger 1710294 Stainless Steel Watch.
Classic Casual Watch
There’s a lot going on when you look at the Tommy Hilfiger ‘maritime-type’ logo. This is a logo that graced apparel lines that channel earlier classier preppy clothing and updated them to fit modern sensibilities. There’s a sense of classy quiet calm and confidence with everything that has the Tommy Hilfiger brand and this is definitely the case with the 1710294 Stainless Steel Watch. You get a watch with a simple design that effortlessly looks great in a wide range of social settings.
Maybe you’re interviewing for a job and don’t want to overwhelm the interviewer. Maybe you are going on a first date and don’t want to come off as trying too hard. Perhaps you are going to be catching up on old times with buddies you haven’t seen in a long time. Whatever the case may be, I suspect that the 1710294 will be your casual occasion ‘go to’ watch. There’s something easy, laid back and unpretentious about it.
With its brown leather strap, classic design and date window and sub-dials, you get a timepiece that speaks eloquently of past classy design glory using a modern language and sporting a modern attitude. Normally, this is a hard feat to pull off. Then again, we ARE talking about Tommy Hilfiger here so it’s no surprise that he’s able to successfully channel preppy school yard style into an easy going, highly adaptable, ‘clean’ looking watch that can be worn in a wide range of social settings.
1710294 Movement Type: Quartz
Let me make one thing abundantly clear here: in bygone times, this Hilfiger watch’s style would have packed quite a price tag. After all, you are looking at a clean design with 3 dials and a nice leather strap. Such genteel sophistication normally doesn’t come cheap. Well, with the 1710294 it comes with a very affordable price tag. Why? Very simple: quartz movement technology.
In all my years reviewing and trying out a wide range of timepieces from Switzerland, Japan, the US, all parts of Europe, and even China, there is one element of a watch’s design that typically distorts its price: its movement type. By simply adopting a quartz movement system, this Hilfiger watch has become quite affordable indeed. The price is also very attractive, allowing you to wear a designer brand on a budget.
Special Features: Three-dial design
I can’t help but get all excited about the 1710294. First, it is already impressive because it carries the Tommy Hilfiger imprint and all the classy design elegance that entails. Second, this analog watch features a really cool three dial design. Usually, such designs cost an arm and a leg. You get a very versatile watch with a nice added level of functionality. Finally, this model is water resistant to a depth of 50m. Why is this a big deal? Well, if you’ve been wearing watches for some time, you would already know that moisture is the enemy of timepieces. You just don’t know what setting you’ll find your watch doused in water or dunked in water. This unit’s 50-meter protection definitely gives quite a bit of peace of mind.
Affordable classy design
What’s my final verdict on the Tommy Hilfiger 1710294 Stainless Steel Timepiece? Simple: Tommy hit the ball out of the park again. Not only do you get a very affordable watch, you also get quite a bit of value packed into a form factor that won’t set your bank account much. How can anyone argue with this package?
