When it comes to creating the perfect impression, choosing the right accessories is key. Nowhere is this truer than in the area of men’s watches, which have the power to make or break an ensemble. From upscale luxury options to rugged everyday wear, choosing the right watch can help to create a cultivated sense of sophistication. To help you craft the perfect look for every occasion, read on for our top advice and suggestions for styling best men’s luxury timepieces.


Dress Watches

A must-have for special occasions, professional and business meetings formal events and affairs . The dress watch serves as a statement piece to indicate respect, professionalism, personal taste and position and authority. While a good portion of your selection will be based on personal preference in brands, color, dial size and shape, and other aesthetic elements, quality is always a major factor. Most dress watches tend to be thinner cases with roman numerals and polished metals with bracelets or luxury leather bands in lizard or alligator grain.  Men’s luxury timepieces from brands like Maurice Lacroix, Eterna, and Ulysse Nardin dominate this category with sleek yet masculine bands and elegant face displays. Ultimately, the trick to finding the perfect men’s dress watch is combining statement with subtlety.


Transitional Watches


In a time when the world’s most high-powered individuals are embracing travel, luxury, and leisure, transitional watches are becoming an increasingly crucial category. Designed to seamlessly transition from formal occasions to casual ones, the transitional watch is typically defined as casual and comfortable  yet luxurious.

To perfect the look, consider
men’s luxury timepieces with basic leather bands such as a suede or smooth calf-skin. The materials often are a mix of brushed and polished metals with subtle and simple details in the dial. Generally these pieces are larger and thicker and more sportier looking than a dress watch.  .


Sport Watches

When it comes to this category, performance is everything, and features such as water resistance, durability, precision timekeeping, and magnetic resistance may be especially critical. Brands like Glycine, Eterna, and Seiko offer visually statement-making timepieces that are also built for optimal performance. Sport watches usually entail rotating and dive bezels, 200 meter water resistance, chronograph dials and GMT hands. This category involves larger or thicker watches made with coated PVD metals, titanium, luminous appendages, rubber and silicone or nato straps for comfort.  Pair with athletic attire, active-wear, or t-shirts and jeans to expertly complete your outfit, even in the most casual scenarios.
