watches are still going strong as a popular
fashion accessory, both stylish and practical. A flip watch can
be categorized into two different watch styles. The first
consists of a regular watch with working gears or digital
readout via LCD display, and a cover that "flips" open, either
manually or at the touch of a button.
The second type of watch is manufactured to the same style
as the retro flip clocks found in the 1950's to 1970's. As the
face of the watch is so small, these are normally designed with
digital flip digits, rather than the analogue digits found
within the large flip clock. They essentially work in the same
way by flipping the minutes and the hours on the front face of
the watch. Flip watch styles can be bought for men and women,
providing a retro look that will match any modern clothing. The
popular choice of style is choosing a flipping watch that
displays a black background with white digits.
A good example of a modern flip cover watch is the high
quality BCBGirls Women's GL4042 Mirror Mirror Collection flip
watch, which features traditional operation through quartz
movement, mineral crystal, and a high gloss metal case. This
flip cover watch is water resistant up to 99 feet, or thirty
meters. It has a studded metallic wristband and a stylish
buckle. As its name suggests, the flip top cover reveals a
mirror, making it a stylish and practical accessory to wear for
a night on the town.
For men, the Hot Leathers Pop Open Skull watch has
everything a biker needs to look tough. It comes in a leather
box and flips open to reveal four red skulls, and has a digital
LCD display. These stylish and affordable flip watches will
appeal to a large number of people, including the goth crowd,
the biker crowd, post-punk rock fans, and everyone in between.
In a similar vein, the Eagle Flip Face Watch has an eagle on
the metal cover, flips open to reveal a high quality timepiece,
and will enable you to keep track of your schedule while
staying true to your personality. For a classic look, you may
also want to check out the Bulova flip top photo watch. Other
watches to look out for are the Ben 10 flip top Omnitrix watch
and the Dakota men's Mag flip clip watch. Children should not
be excluded out with an Elmo flip watch from Sesame Street.
Flip watches have been around for a
long time, but they have most recently been making a comeback
among the punk-rock crowd, the biker crowd, and image-conscious
women. While many have cited the advantages of traditional
watches, flip style watches enable you to protect the most
important part of the watch, the timepiece itself, enabling you
to keep your watch in good working order for years to come.
Timepieces such as these are available in a wide range of
budgets to accommodate many people, and the fashion statement
it makes will draw positive attention to you in all circles,
whether you hang out with the tough crowd or the fashion crowd.
Be a trend-setter and see what happens when you tell time with
one of these flip style watches.
