While some people might be replacing watches with smartwatches or fitness trackers, we still believe a quality timepiece is an essential executive accoutrement. Serving two purposes; it makes a statement about your style and standing, and it tells you the time (which is incredibly useful).
So, whether you flex a rugged, tech-heavy chronograph or a classic, slimline dress watch designed to compliment your suits, your choice of watch says a lot about you.
That’s why we’ve taken care to pick out the best men’s watches available to buy, including the timepieces that caught our eye at all the watch trade shows.
A chronograph tailor-made for the modern day, despite being inspired by the 1820s, the Louis Moinet Geograph is a chronograph that wows with its practical yet elegant design aesthetic. Inside the 45.5mm stainless steel case is an exquisite brown dial with a striking guilloche decoration. At 12 o’clock, one can see the 30-minute counter, while at six o’clock rests the 12-hour counter. At nine o’clock is a date indicator. A sinuous central hand with a red tip points to the periphery of the watch, which is coloured blue for night time and gold for day, representing the second time zone. The chronograph pushers have atlas motifs, taking us back in time to the days when the world was at the cusp of the discovery of new lands through sea voyages. Powering the timepiece is a self-winding mechanism that offers a power reserve of 48 hours.
The Aquis Date is Oris’ bestseller, and it’s not difficult to see why. A classic design, with some tasteful colourways and good case sizes, paired with the choice of a classic bracelet or a sportier rubber strap and at a reasonable price tag is certainly a recipe for success. But to make things better, it is also the first watch that Oris picked to feature the spanking new calibre 400. The movement features a five-day or 120-hour power reserve, high resistance to magnetism, recommended service intervals of 10 years, and a 10-year warranty. Looking at the figures, one can tell that the movement was created for longevity and with a customer-first approach in mind. The fuss-free Aquis Date Calibre 400 comes in a 43.5mm stainless steel case that has a 300m water resistance rating, making it a true blue diver.
