Timing is everything. From meeting deadlines to catching an international flight, having a good watch is crucial to the modern man. A watch is not only a status symbol, but is a good indicator of a man's character and personality. A watch is also a fashion accessory which can and should be worn in rotation to fulfill the needs of different activities, whether at the office, in the club, at a black tie event or in a sporting environment. I have chosen a number of timepieces that meet all of these requirements and look fantastic.
The vintage 1970s modernist Heuer Monaco Chronograph pictured below features an extremely rare dial configuration. The watch is offered by Matthew Bain Inc. and is available for purchase here.
As seen below, the smooth, clean lines of the Rado Ceramica black and gold-tone subdial watch separate this Rado watch from the rest. The gold-tone accents are reminiscent of an airplane control panel. This watch is priced at $1800.00 and is available for purchase here.
The vintage 1960s Omega Seamaster watch shown below features a deep blue dial, 12-hour and 24-hour, chronograph and date, making this watch an ideal yachting timepiece. The watch is offered by Matthew Bain Inc. and is available for purchase here.
This new Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Automatic Chronometer watch (seen below) is an updated version of the classic Seamaster. This would be the perfect choice to wear on that fishing trip to the Sea of Cortez. This watch is priced at $3,395.00 and is available for purchase here.
Classic styling and German made precision make this TX T3C205 watch (below) an excellent choice for an everyday timepiece, taking you from the boardroom to cocktails in style. This watch is priced at $375.00 and is available for purchase here.
The new Diesel DZ4201 XXL Triple Time Chronograph (seen below) is made for the man on a mission. This rugged timepiece is built like a tank and functions like a perfectly designed piece of gear, utterly reliable in the field. This watch is priced at $249.00 and is available for purchase here.
Below is the LIP Mythic Jump Hour watch in Green and Black. It features a modern, French design with a graduating ring face that is unique and stylish. The well designed steel band is built for comfort, an all around great looking watch. This timepiece is priced at $325.00 and is available for purchase here.
The Gucci name is synonymous with finely crafted Italian made goods. With this Gucci watch (seen below) they have excelled in creating a sporty and elegant timepiece that would look perfect paired with tennis whites. This watch is priced at $784.03 and is available for purchase here.
If you want your watch to reflect your art collection, contemporary and cutting edge, this is the watch for you. Pictured below, the Nixon Newton watch in the Green/Blue/Navy combination is brilliantly designed with features such as a digital compass, computer capability and even a heart rate monitor. The smooth polyurethane band is cool and comfortable. This watch is priced at $84.95 and is available for purchase here.
And now for the curveball! As seen below, massive technological advances in design have gone into the space age design of this Japanese made Seahope Ever Increasing Series watch. The watch features a state of the art graph display with the time climbing upwards on three separate lines. This is a truly unique timepiece, the go-to choice for the tech savvy.
