The rest of your style changes with the seasons, so why shouldn't your watch? This summer, switch up your wristwear and opt for a timepiece that is as summer-appropriate as the breezy linen shirts and printed swim shorts you're sporting. Reserve leather straps for dressy occasions - hot days call for comfortable rubber, nylon or metal straps. Sturdy construction, practical details and sleek, unfussy design are all characteristics to look out for.
