Men's Watches: The Perfect Accessory for Every Occasion
If you're looking to purchase a new men's watch, then you have almost unlimited choices. There's a wide range of watches for men to fit every taste and budget. Citizen watches are particularly affordable and a popular brand. There are also affordable quartz watches from brands such as Festina, Fossil, and Swatch; moderately priced automatic watches
from Tissot and Certina; and prestigious luxury watches from name brands like Rolex
, and Omega
, if you prefer an expensive gold watch.
An important deciding factor when purchasing a watch for men
is the type of watch, or what you want to use the watch for. If you're looking for an everyday watch, a sports watch such as a chronograph
, which you can use as a timer, is a good choice. Diving watches with rotatable bezels to keep track of your dive time are also popular for men. Pilot's watches are currently trendy thanks to their simple, legible dials with luminous hands and numerals. Many consider these, along with diving watches, the ideal tool watches. Since most sports watches are waterproof to at least 100 m (10 bar), you can wear them while swimming without a problem.
If you require a wristwatch for wearing at the office, then a dress watch
is exactly what you need. This type of watch is often thin and rather small so it fits easily under your shirt cuff. Dress watch designs are often classic, and gold cases and leather straps are often used. However, there are also sporty-elegant men's watches such as the Rolex Explorer
and the Rolex Datejust
, which also go perfectly with a suit. Many men's watches make great gifts for business partners or grooms.
How much do men's watches cost?
You'll find high-quality luxury watches
at the upper end of the price range. These watches are from long-established and well-respected manufacturers such as Patek Philippe
. For example, their intricate Sky Moon Tourbillon
wristwatch, featuring a minute repeater
, perpetual calendar
, and tourbillon
, costs 1.5 million euros new. Patek Philippe watches are considered the epitome of high-quality watchmaking.
Rolex produces some of the most beloved men's watches in the world. At least one person in the upper tiers of most companies has a Rolex. However, Omega also competes on the same level with their Speedmaster and Seamaster models. If you prefer a distinctive watch with a technical design, then you'll enjoy Hublot timepieces. You'll catch everyone's eye with a Hublot Big Bang on your wrist.
Prices for men's watches vary greatly. On the more affordable end of the spectrum are less expensive quartz watches with an analog or digital display, which you can buy for less than 100 euros; digital watches from the Japanese manufacturer Casio are good examples of this type of watch. However, if you place a lot of value on a mechanical watch
, either manual or automatic, then look at offerings from Seiko. Timepieces from this brand are considered very reliable, robust, and affordable. While all of these companies offer men's watches, they also produce watches for women.
