Men are simply spoiled for choice when it comes to black watches. For instance, there are silver watches with black faces, or black watches for men with colorful straps. But when it comes to true all-black watches, your options are surprisingly limited.

43. Diesel DZ1830 Armbar Silicone
If you are a frequent mall-goer, then you probably know this brand. Diesel is an Italian retail clothing company. Headquartered in Breganze, Italy, its primary products include denim and other apparel. However, the brand also has a line of footwear and accessories, including watches.
The Diesel DZ1830 Armbar Silicone has a diameter of around 45mm x 50mm, making it a pretty big watch. However, since it measures only 10mm in thickness, it is also very thin and quite easy on the wrist. The black silicone strap of the watch also proves easy to replace, with its standard 24mm width. This all-black watch functions with a Japanese quartz movement and features a water resistance rating of 100 meters! Not bad for a fashion watch. Moreover, it only costs $100 USD! This Diesel piece is a true bang for the buck.

This black smartwatch comes in a robust 44mm stainless steel case. It is compatible with Android OS 4.3+ and above, as well as iOS 8 and above.

53. Richard Mille RM 037
Richard Mille is a renowned luxury brand famous for its exorbitant prices. However, there is a very good reason for this. This luxury brand does not mass produce its watches, and the demand for the few Richard Mille pieces in existence is extremely high.
The model we are looking at in particular is the RM037. This watch uses the brand’s Carbon TPT®, which is a very light and robust material. It protects the watch from any impacts and gives it a unique and powerful rectangular appearance. Inside is a skeletonized automatic in-house movement with bridges and a base plate made from sturdy grade 5 titanium. It also offers 50 hours of power reserve. Perhaps one of the most expensive black watches on this list, the Richard Mille RM037 can cost around $120,000 to $150,000 per piece.
54. Daniel Wellington Iconic Link Ceramic
Daniel Wellington is one of the more accessible luxury brands on this list. It features stunning designs that do not look at all like their prices.

Paired with strong and lightweight ceramic links, you get a gorgeous watch that stands out as a personal statement piece. This watch costs around $299 USD.
55. Seiko 5 Sports SRPD79K1
There are 5 standard qualities that all Seiko 5 watches possess. Firstly, they all have automatic movements. That movement, of course, needs to have a day and date aperture. Each Seiko 5 watch should also have ample water resistance capacities and a recessed crown at 4 o’clock. Finally, it would not be a Seiko 5 watch without a durable case.
The Seiko 5 Sports SRPD79K1 ticks all of these boxes while also boasting a robust and sporty all-black exterior. This is easily one of the best black watches on this list, and you can make it your own for just $299 USD.
