By all means, view it as a practical extra layer, but it’s much more fun to see it as a style challenge; something to be worked into your wardrobe to create an aesthetic all in its own right.

Go full-on 90s retro with a chunky wristwatch like the Clubmaster Classic Chronograph from French Briston. It comes in a wide range of colours and sizes but there’s something deliciously old school about oversized.
