(if you meant cycling, you can check out that article here)

To some, biking is a mere hobby, while to others it is a lifestyle. There is a certain appeal to being out on the road, hearing the roar of the engine, and feeling the wind on your body. If you love biking, then you know that biking encompasses many different elements other than just owning and riding a motorcycle. Style is one such element. That is what we are looking at here when it comes to bikers watches.

As a biker, you are going to want a watch that is unique, and captures the spirit of biking itself. You need something that stands out from the crowd. That being said, we have looked at various types of watches and watch styles to come up with several different options in bikers watches.

Bikers Watches: Skull Imagery In Biking

skull imagery in bikers watches

You will notice that a few of these watches have depictions of skulls on them. The actual origin of the use of skull imagery for bikers is the subject of several different lore.

Some say it began from a group of WWII veterans who adopted skull imagery as a result of the various conflicts of war. Another theory is that skull imagery is used as a way of showing that no matter who we are, we all share the same fate in death. This would make sense, as bikers have historically been categorized as misfits and outsiders. Then also some believe that the skull imagery is just a simple sign of rebellion. It catches attention and has negative connotations to it.

Theories abound about the use of skulls in biking. No matter what the origin, this skull imagery has been forever imbued into biker culture. At this point, it will mean different things to different people. Anyway, back to the watches!

These watches are not the typical watches that you are used to seeing. You know, the kind that everybody wears? No, these watches go against the conventional norms. We also feel that these watches embody the essence of biking. So enough rambling. These are our top picks in bikers watches!
