The rules of wrist stacking defined

There's no doubt about it—when you have a watch like the A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia 37mm Grey Dial, people take notice. But what can make it stand out even more is smart styling. From the boardroom to beyond, here are the things to keep in mind when dressing up your wrist:

First things first—you should always start with the style of your watch, namely its material, strap and face. For a classy watch like the A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia 37mm Grey Dial, it's best to keep the rest of your outfit in complementary shades of navy, white and dark brown. 

Since the watch has a rose gold case, contrasting it against brown leather really helps the watch stand out, while silver-toned bracelets are great for matching the stunning grey dial.

Don't be afraid to play with different forms of bracelets, be it beaded or braided. These days, it's all about bringing together different styles to make them your own. One thing to keep in mind though is the fit of each bracelet. Too big, and it'll look oversized, not to mention slide around—too small, and it'll not only look childish but cut off circulation.

Contrasting the smooth leather band of the A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia 37mm Grey Dial with thinly braided bracelets and delicate beads also helps to give the look some texture.

3/3 Focus on the watch

No matter what you do, always keep the focal point on the watch itself. Wrist styling is meant to bring out the beauty of the watch, so be sure to not go overboard on the amount of bracelets worn. A good rule of thumb is to make sure that the width of the bracelets don't overwhelm the width of the watch.

For those new to wrist stacking, start off with just one bracelet next to your watch, and add more as you feel more comfortable. Although, if you have a watch as impressive as the A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia 37mm Grey Dial, there's no harm in wearing it on its own either.
