Men are simply spoiled for choice when it comes to black watches. There are silver watches with black faces. Or black watches for men with colorful straps. But when it comes to all-black watches, and we mean all-black watches, your options are surprisingly few.
Color choice says a lot about a person. The color blue is associated with depth, intelligence, confidence, and loyalty. White brings forth feelings of cleanliness, purity, and innocence. Silver immediately makes one think of modern, high-tech, sophistication, and elegance.
And then there is the color black. All-black watches to be exact.
Black is synonymous with sleek, serious, prestige, classic, and timeless. Objects that are black in color evoke a feeling of authority and power. Who wouldn’t want that on their wrist?
OMEGA Speedmaster Moonwatch Co-Axial Chronograph
The Speedmaster Moonwatch Co-Axial Chronograph from Omega is the perfect example of all black watches for men. In fact, the only non-black element of the Moonwatch’s design is the dull silver bar markers. Other than that, this bad boy is all black all over.
How much black are we talking about? A matte black dial, black ceramic case, and a black coated nylon fabric strap make the OMEGA Speedmaster Moonwatch what it is. Literally inspired by the dark side of the moon, this Moonwatch pays homage to the Apollo 8 astronauts.
