Winter – it’s always a test, and not only for you and your nerves. The short daylight hours, subzero temperatures, snow, ice, and other typical things also influence the work of art. Luxury watches – is no exception. If you are preparing to spend the winter, bright and fun skating in the park, skiing or snowboarding in the country, a car owner who occasionally have to clean up from the snow rubble after the next snowstorm, it is recommended to choose a wrist accessory is not only the mood, or event, but also to take into account seasonal features. What are the periods on the wrist comfortably just wait until spring – in our material?
