Sporty

Engaging in any sport has often seen men avoiding wearing anything that could possibly be broken or damaged.

But the latest sporty watches are now adorned by many men as they engage in sporting activities.

Tennis players, in particular, love showing off their most coveted accessories and we think you should too.

And while your bank account may not stretch as far as that of Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, who are both known for sporting watches well into the hundreds of thousands, we have compiled some worthy options.

Including various water-resistant and scratch-proof versions, sporty watches are a sturdy accessory you won’t be needing to take off in preparation for your next sporting event.

Thanks to the clear dedication of ensuring style and functionality go one in one, you won’t be making any sacrifices on both fronts either.

Luxury

For those who prefer the finer things in life, a luxury watch is a definite must-have investment.

An ideal accompaniment to formal attire, the carefully crafted accessory is a show-stopper in its own right.

Unique in their impeccable design and detailing, luxury timepieces are made for watch enthusiasts.

And from looking at the options available we can completely understand the artistry behind being a collector.

The Roger Dubuis 18-karat pink gold watch is not only innovatively engineered but also meticulously crafted, an investment piece worth noting down as an heirloom keepsake.

While not in the same price bracket, the history-rich Montblanc watches are swiftly becoming timeless and worth the investment.

And because luxury watches come at the sacrifice of dipping into your savings, we have also included a mix of some ‘luxury-styled’ watches that may not necessarily fit the same price bracket but will give a lasting impression on the eyes of the beholder.

Adventure

When escaping for an off-road adventurous weekend, one would be quick to assume a watch would not fit the outfit criteria.

But don’t be fooled because a watch that fits the adventuring schedule may just be exactly what you need to be wearing.

Noticeable in appearance due to their chunky, sturdy exterior, adventure-style watches are well-equipped for the toughest of activities.

The Timex Tide-Temp-Compass stainless steel and leather watch says it all in its name.

All inclusive, the tide tracking, temperature sensing watch is fit with an electronic compass. Looking stylistically good all the while remaining functional.

But if you are hoping for more of a tough exterior watch that is capable of taking a few unexpected hits, then the G Shock digital watch is ready to resist all the shocks thrown its way.

Classic

While watches continue to become more explorative in style and design, there is no escaping the classic stainless-steel watch.

The perfect balance of smart, sophisticated and chic, the loyal designs understand the flexibility of office to outwear.

Ranging in prices, there is a design to suit every man.

Whether a neutral shade is more your style or a bold coloured facing, the classic watch understands the beauty of simplistic detailing.

And while many watches are now fit with a round facing, Fossil’s Retro digital stainless-steel watch believes in being fashionably nostalgic through their rectangularly round-edged facing.

So, while the various collections on offer right now may have you spreading your wings and expanding your collection, we truly believe the classic watch deserves to be on display.

No matter the occasion, the good old faithful classic continues to be an all-rounding crowd pleaser.

Casual

Fancy, unique watches are quickly becoming the most cherished items in many men’s ‘accessory’ cabinets, but sometimes casual, everyday wear watches deserve more recognition than they are given.

Faithful like the old classic watch, the casual watch understands that some days don’t call for the most luxurious item in your collection.

Sometimes a watch is simply for telling the time rather than making a statement.

But while that may be the case, the casual watches we have compiled also understand how to complete any outfit.

Simple and versatile with any outfit worn to a casual lunch or park date, the casual watch is a good starter for men not familiar with wearing a timepiece.

And while we can’t promise you won’t reach for your phone instead when asked for the time, we can promise the watches on offer at the moment will swiftly turn you into a watch enthusiast within no time.
