    Best Mechanical Watches for Men

    To many watch aficionados, the only kind of watch to wear are mechanical watches. But with so many out there, the abundance of choices can be overwhelming. While we can’t go through them all, let’s look at a few of the best mechanical watches to consider. Yes, Quartz is More Accurate Before the Quartz fans start screaming, we should get this one out of the way. It is true, quartz watches are slightly more accurate than mechanical watches. While today’s technology means mechanical watches are getting more and more accurate, they will still never be as accurate as their quartz cousins (at least not in our lifetimes). Results vary, but you can expect a good quartz watch to lose only a few seconds a year while a well-made mechanical watch may lose a few seconds per month. But that is a small price to pay for the wonder that is a mechanical watch. Tag Heuer Autavia Isograph If we remember much from the 1980s style, it was that things were big and bold. Hair was sprayed high, shoulder pads got ridiculously puffy and punk-inspired ensembles broke norms with shredded style. It was in the 80s that the Tag Heuer Autavia thrived. Discontinued in 1985, the model recently made a triumphant return. As its name suggests, the watch blends the style of race-inspired timepieces with made-for-pilots “aviation” watches. The result is a wonderful hybrid that comes in a carbon composite case that can take one heck of a beating. Since it’s antimagnetic, shock resistant, and gravity resistant, it’s durable enough to take anything most men can dish out. The round case wears large at 42mm, but not so big and bulky that it doesn’t dress up nicely on a fine leather strap. Rolex Yacht-Master II Detractors of the classic Rolex Yacht-Master II may say that the watch wears too heavy. And they may have a point. With a diameter of 44mm and a bold angular lug design, it does present large. It’s one of the biggest offerings Rolex has in its repertoire. But most watch lovers will say that’s the beauty of the timepiece. It’s a guy’s guy watch that proudly puts its heft on display. With water resistance up to 100 meters, it’s built tough and designed for the adventurous spirit. That’s not to say it doesn’t have its finer side. Eighteen carat gold hour markers give it an air of sophistication while the instantly recognizable Ring Command bezel gives it a big, bold, blue show that most men would be proud to heft around on their wrists. Longines HydroConquest Automatic Diver You may be aware that the Swatch Group produces Longines timepieces. And Swatch is known for its whimsical watches, with lots of plastic pieces you may get in a variety of colors to add a splash of fun to an everyday outfit. That doesn’t mean you can’t look to them for a fine automatic watch. The Longines HydroConquest is a perfect example of this dichotomy. This is a classic men’s watch, with a bold blue dial, silver-white indices, and a traditional no-nonsense case style, which doesn’t go too big with a 41mm diameter. The result is a masculine piece that doesn’t try to overcompensate. Adding to its old-school aesthetics, the screw-down crown and link bracelet tells the world you’re a traditional man with traditional tastes. www.instagram.com/p/BwFJndVBs0T/ Tudor Black Bay If you are going for all of the hallmarks that traditionally go into a watch for a man — clean lines, form following function, and a pedigree that goes back decades — one should not look past the Black Bay. While we first saw the line in 2012, its roots go much deeper, back to Tudor foray into dive watches with the Submariner in 1954. Today, the Tudor Black Bay, which comes in over a dozen varieties, continues that tradition with models like the Black Bay P01. With a 42mm diameter case, it has a manly vibe, that’s softened by a satin stainless steel finish. But this watch was made for men of action. It’s waterproof to 200 meters, has a crown at the four o’clock position to protect it from any bumps the watch may take on its side, and locks down its bezel with a unique hinge system. It’s no surprise this model is based on a design from 1967 intended for divers in the U.S. Navy and given the apt code name “Commando.” Hublot Classic Fusion Ferrari GT Putting this monster on your wrist, with a bold 45mm carbon-fiber case, might draw accusations of overcompensation. Driving a Ferrari might do the same. But for guys who want things big, bold, and luxurious, the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT 3D Carbon (also available in titanium and “King Gold”) is a perfect choice. Hublot began its association with Ferrari back in 2011, drawing inspiration from the Gran Turismo racers of the Italian auto legends. This one just screams for attention, with a busy skeletonized dial and subdials that seem to float over the action. The self-winding flyback chronograph’s movement is made up of over 350 parts, all moving in precise unison to create a show worthy of the Ferrari name. Mechanical Watches Conclusion Of course, there are more. Lots more. Most major brands have dozens of mechanical offerings. But if you keep your eyes peeled and mind open, we’re sure you’ll find that perfect mechanical watch to put on your wrist.

  4. Most Popular Omega Seamaster Models

    Most Popular Omega Seamaster Models

    If you know Omega watches, you probably know the infamous Omega Seamaster. One of the longest-running lines in the Swiss watchmaker’s esteemed catalog, it’s also one of the most popular. But which Seamaster models do people love the most? Let’s take a look. Over Seven Decades of Demand The Omega Seamaster made its debut on the world stage in 1957. Since then, the Omega Seamaster has been emblematic of the watchmaker’s fascination with the high seas. But its place in the Omega pantheon has always had a hint of uncertainty. On one hand, many of the watches in the Seamaster line satisfy hardcore undersea enthusiasts. They have solid depth ratings and helium valves. On the other hand, many of the offerings in the Seamaster collection wear more like nice dress watches that just happen to be water-resistant. It made the line interesting and somewhat hard to define. But let’s at least try with a look at some of the most popular Seamaster’s out there. The “James Bond” Seamaster Diver 300m If you’ve seen images of Seamaster’s on Instagram, chances are pretty good you’ve come across this classic. Pierce Brosnan famously took 007 from Rolex to Omega in the 1995 movie Goldeneye, with a quartz version (Reference 2541.80) that has the instantly recognizable helium escape valve at the ten o’clock position and a wave pattern on its blue dial. The switch made sense as Omega was what officers of Britain’s Royal Navy were actually wearing at the time. Omega later celebrated 20 years with Bond by outfitting Daniel Craig (an Omega ambassador) with a Diver 300m for 2005’s Spectre. His limited edition model has a unique lollipop seconds hand and he wore it in sporty style on a grey-and-black NATO strap. Over the years, there have been modifications to the 300m, with some featuring chronograph functions and available in various precious metals. But the watch stayed true to its original design, and, if the hordes of Omega lovers out there have anything to say about it, it will stay just as popular by not changing with the times. Seamaster Professional Planet Ocean This is another one that owes some of its popularity to celebrities. Actors like George Clooney and Tom Hardy have been spotted wearing Planet Oceans, as has Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps. Daniel Craig wears one both off-screen and he sported one in the opening of the Bond film Casino Royale. With a debut in 2005, the Planet Ocean has less history than its predecessor, the Diver 300m, but does offer a modern message from Omega about its commitment to ecologically sound oceans. The Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Diver 43.5mm, arguably one of the most popular entries in the already popular line, doubles its predecessor’s water resistance with a rating of up to 600 meters (as you may have guessed by its name). The Planet Ocean is also a true dive watch with a helium release valve, co-axial movement, and carbon case. If we’re judging by Instagram, orange seems by far to be the most popular color. Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Here’s where we get into something of a nebulous area with Seamasters and their dive-watch credentials. True, the Aqua Terra was built for diving. As most amateur dives won’t take you even close to the watch’s 150-meter depth rating, it covers most underwater needs. But the watch has a dressy side and it’s not shy to flaunt it. Fitted on a fine leather strap, this watch feels more at home in an upscale bistro than along the Great Barrier Reef. With clean, simple case lines and an uncluttered dial, the Aqua Terra exudes a more cosmopolitan vibe than your average tool watch. It’s also well-suited for land as a travel watch, with a 24-hour GMT hand for tracking different time zones. Both its versatility and its ability to dress up lends to its popularity. We must give another nod to an endorsement from James Bond. Daniel Craig dons an Aqua Terra in Skyfall, but in lieu of scuba gear, he fittingly pairs the watch with a designer suit. A 300 in Gold and Green The Omega Seamaster 300 has seen its share of variety, from dial colors to straps, bracelets, and complications. One of the most noteworthy models, and most eye-catching, is a Seamaster 300 in vivid green and yellow gold. The color combination is almost a parody of vintage style, but just almost as the deep green malachite dial and matching ceramic bezel blend perfectly with the gleaming 18K yellow gold case and hands. It dresses up impressively on either a link bracelet or green alligator strap and, in truth, belongs nowhere near the deep sea. The Great Bullhead Divide This one has both its rabid fans and its naysaying detractors. And it needs some context to be understood. Omega flowed with the unconventional times and created a watch that stood in defiance of round-case timepieces. The Bullhead’s bold asymmetrical case made it an instant standout, as did its face with chronograph dials in the unusual 12 and 6 o’clock positions. Wearing one today is an unapologetic homage to the hazy days of the 70s and while extremely popular, not for every Omega lover. So, you may be on the side of the majority and favor something from the Diver 300 offerings. Or you may stand apart from the fray and proudly wear an unconventional Bullhead. However you choose, there is a popular Omega Seamaster waiting for you.

  5. 5 Best Thin Watches for Men

    5 Best Thin Watches for Men

    The 2019 watch market catered for all types of preferences and here’s a watch type that will always stay in style: thin watches. There’s no universal standard, but in general, watches are seen as ‘thin watches’ when they’re 10mm thick or less. In this thin casing brands can add tiny components and modern technology that ensure you get a top of the range watch that will last you years to come. What’s your reason for loving this niche? You may prefer this design because of your build: a thin watch looks better on a thin wrist. Or perhaps you simply like the minimalism that often goes with thin watches. No matter your reason, there’s no question that you’re joining a stylish crowd when you start wearing one of the best thin watches for men featured below. Christopher Ward C5 Malvern 95 The C5 Malvern 595 from Christopher Ward often ends up on people’s favorites lists because the minimalistic design suits so many different tastes. It looks good on almost any guy’s arm and matches various outfits. You can even switch between the oak leather strap and a Milanese mesh bracelet to try out different styles for various occasions. Source: Christopher Ward Official WebsiteThe Swiss made watch will last you a long time, as can be seen by the impressive guarantee of 60 months. It’s only 5.95mm in height and we love the anti-reflective characteristic of the crystal. Another unique feature is the back which is see-through, so you can see how your new watch works. Best of all: this is a reasonably priced watch, so any man can dress in style. Hamilton Jazzmaster Thinline Auto Hamilton makes it easy to find a thin men’s watch that will suit your style because the Hamilton Thinline Auto range includes various dial and strap colors. Purchase a few of them so you have one for every mood. All of them are under 9mm in height, which is impressive for an automatic winding watch. It has the bare essentials of showing you time, but the brand did include a date feature too: a nice extra for a watch that is very affordable. This one sells for under $1000. You get a two-year warranty, so you know you’re buying a quality item. The straps are made of leather, which suits various men’s tastes and always looks stylish. LU Chopard XP Chopard is another brand that is proud of their high standard of watches, all thanks to Swiss watchmaking. They check their quality in their two workshops—in Geneva and Fleurier—and in the XP model from the Chopard L.U.C. collection, you get an excellent mix of classic and modern features that will suit almost any man. There are different designs in the XP range, but the silver dial XP model with its blue hands and numerals is one of the most popular. Chopard attends to the finest detail, such as brushing the metal in a unique way. This gives it some texture and flair to be eye-catching. It’s only 7.2mm high and has water resistant properties, making it a practical and a style investment. It will serve you well for a long time, thanks to the scratch resistant sapphire crystal on the front. Vacheron Constantin Historiques Ultra-Fine 1955 If you’re after a thin watch that has a little more detail, the Historiques Ultra-Fine 1955 from Vacheron Constantin could be what you’re looking for. The combination of pink gold and the black alligator skin strap can’t be missed. With this on your wrist you showcase style and luxury living. If it’s thin you’re after, the 4.3mm thickness will impress—one of the thinnest on our list—and we also love that the back is transparent. Similar to the Christopher Malvern above it adds something personal and interesting for the wearer to enjoy. Note that this is a manual winding watch and it will give you 31 hours of reserve power. Drive de Cartier Extra Flat Watch You can’t go wrong with Cartier! In their Drive range you’ll find the Extra Flat model. It’s only 6.6mm high and what makes it a winner is the unique look: a cushion shaped case with Roman numerals that makes it classic yet striking. The blue alligator skin strap is stylish and along with the blue hands it adds a tinge of ‘modern’ so this watch can work for a guy of any age. It’s water resistant up to 30 meters, so you can wear it to the office but also while you’re out and about. Thin Watches for Men Conclusion There may be fewer features than you’ll find on pilot or tactical watches, but there’s no question: you can still make a style statement with a thin watch on your arm. So, there’s no reason not to consider one of these wrist watches as the next one for your collection. Do you have other thin watch favorites? Please share with us.

Apart from being very durable, the Garmin Tactix Charlie features numerous handy functions, including a barometric altimeter, GPS navigation, gyroscope, thermometer, heart-rate monitor, and more. These tools give wearers value for money by helping to keep them safe in various scenarios, be it in land, sea, or air. Despite its bulk, the Tactix Charlie is comfortable and stylish enough to be worn to just about any occasion. 6. SureFire 2211 Luminox Wristlight – $650 USD Image By: Surefire There are two shining stars in the SureFire 2211 Luminox Wristlight: the timepiece itself, and its powerful LED flashlight. Since this is a list about the best tactical watches, after all, we will place more of our attention on this watch’s horological features. As we can see, the design of the wristwatch is pretty unique. It features an unusual, bulky aircraft-grade aluminum case with an elapsed time bezel and a self-illuminating dial. It even comes with a micro USB port and cable for recharging. As a watch, the SureFire 2211 demonstrates the practicality and reliability we all know from the Luminox brand. Strategically positioned to be used with a firearm, the SureFire 2211’s tactical LED light can produce a broad and bright beam of 300 lumens, and yes, for those wondering, 300 lumens is VERY bright indeed. 7. Seiko Prospex SNJ025P1 “Arnie” – $525 USD Based on the 1983 Seiko H558-5009, the Seiko Prospex SNJ025P1 steps up as the modern-day “Arnie” watch. While bearing a similar look as its predecessor, the SNJ025P1 brings forth a few new, contemporary innovations. Powered by an H851 solar quartz movement, the new Arnie comes in a 47.8mm stainless steel case with matte-black finishing. Its dial boasts sizable hour makers, which Seiko treated with their patented LumiBrite technology. Seiko also updated the digital display of the watch. The Seiko Arnie now allows wearers to access another time zone along with the date, alarms, battery levels, and stopwatch functions through its digital display. In addition, its case features a screw-down crown that contributes to the watch’s 200m water resistance rating. 8. Hamilton Khaki Field Automatic 38mm – $575 USD At first glance, you would not expect this Hamilton model to be a tactical watch. Little did you know that Hamilton crafted the Khaki Field Automatic 38mm to handle all sorts of challenging expeditions. Despite its slim exterior, the Khaki Field Automatic is a truly solid watch. Its build is made up of a sturdy stainless steel case paired with a domed sapphire crystal, which is water-resistant up to depths of 100m. Operating below its beautiful black dial is an H-10 automatic caliber equipped with an 80-hour power reserve. With its sleek looks and reliable movement, the Khaki Field Automatic 38mm is a robust tactical timepiece that will not let you down. 9. Victorinox I.N.O.X Carbon – $900 USD The I.N.O.X. Carbon collection is home to a lot of capable timepieces. But the Victorinox timepiece that stole our hearts with its striking, tactical looks is the I.N.O.X. Carbon Limited Edition. Its unique, lightweight carbon composite case is highly scratch-resistant and wonderfully complements its camouflage dial and matching camouflage textile strap. The dial boasts only the essential timekeeping functions with luminous hands, Arabic numeral hour markers, and a date display, and is powered by a Swiss analog quartz movement. On the whole, the I.N.O.X. Carbon offers great utility from its case to its bracelet.

  10. Introduction to Piaget Watches: Top 3 Collections

    Introduction to Piaget Watches: Top 3 Collections

    Rooted in 1874, Piaget watches quickly became an authentic symbol of fine watchmaking and jewelry. George-Edouard Piaget was only 19 when he founded the workshop to manufacture top-notch components and high precision movements. “Always do better than necessary.” This was George’s motto that helped him permeate the company and becoming the most prestigious brand in Switzerland. The company took a revolutionary turn in the twenties under the leadership of George-Edouard’s son, Timothee Piaget. His remarkable vision led to the transformation of a small company into the manufacturer of luxury watches to be worn at any time. Today, Piaget watches are adopted by celebrities around the globe for their versatility and distinctive design. Piaget is referred to as the marriage of gold and precious gems. This ever-bold brand holds a glamorous history of 140 years of providing extravagant wristwatch collections. Apart from the fine craftsmanship, Piaget watches feature the thinnest cases and purest jewels. This combination has set a standard in the watchmaking industry. Piaget has dazzled watch enthusiasts with its top 3 collections, each of which radiates sophistication. Piaget Watches 1: Altiplano Piaget marked a milestone in the field of watchmaking by presenting the Piaget Altiplano to the world in 1957. With its slim and elegant construction, this watch is a symbol of high-degree performance and reliability. Source: Piaget Ultra-thin Horology: The slim silhouette of the Altiplano is combined with a large dial. It is equipped with a 20.5mm diameter dial plus an ultra-flat caliber less than 2.3mm in height. Moreover, the 12P automatic movement ensures the efficient performance of the wristwatch. Moreover, a micro-rotor made of 24K gold is employed to make this slim movement possible. Piaget has always been keen on innovation and, therefore, now uses 9P hand-wound movement for all watches in this collection. Precious material for Case: The brand has ushered in new designs for its timepieces by using only the finest materials such as gold and platinum in this collection. These watches are adorned with an aesthetic appeal due to creative cases. Large dials are embellished with stick indexes and slim hands. Sophisticated Craftsmanship: Behind the sleek design of this collection lies outstanding craftsmanship. It comes with all the sophisticated details like circular Geneva stripes, blued screws, bevelled bridges, as well as a circular-grained main plate. Each watch is manufactured with the watchmaker’s specialized knowledge. 2: Limelight Gala: Although there are tons of beautiful wristwatches out there, the Piaget Limelight Gala has continued to attract women with elegant jewelry watches since 1972. This iconic signature of vibrant femininity offers timeless elegance and glamour to the wearer. Source: Piaget A timepiece with history: This chic first debuted in 1972 and was resurrected by the brand in 2013. The new edition replaced the original model’s white gold strap with a satin one. Later in 2016, 18K pink and white gold were used to create a nice mesh bracelet. Goes with every outfit: One loved feature is the right balance between glamour and practicality. The design is elegant enough to add grace to your wrist on your daily basis, yet glitzy enough to go with any formal dress. Therefore, you can easily switch from your daytime look to the evening one. Tough: The meshwork is beautifully executed with toughness, as well as elegance. The most-loved thing about the mesh is how beautifully it complements the diamond-embellished bezel and the elongated asymmetrical lugs. Moreover, the bracelet is comfortable and marks safety. Fits any wrist: Another thing to appreciate about this Piaget Limelight Gala Collection is that the bracelet comes with an adjustable clasp. This means it can fit any wrist size without opting for customization. Dazzling Diamonds: As they say, “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” We surely get dazzled by the 62 diamonds embellishing the round bezel, as well as the elongated lugs. These little 1.75 carat diamonds make head turns by the glamour they offer. This beautiful and tactile collection, Limelight Gala, talks for both preciousness and comfort. 3: Polo The Piaget Polo has continued to evolve with masculine grace since its debut in 1979. Made of solid gold, the first Polo was considered prestigious to wear in the 1980s. With the introduction of Piaget Polo S, the new version of the Polo, Piaget’s fanfare was remarkably increased. Today, these luxury steel watches radiate masculine elegance all day long. Piaget Polo S The S: The Polo S is the improved version of Polo in which the S stands for steel, style, and the signature of this iconic brand. This model was a combination of perfection and sporty elegance to accompany you from morning to night. Piaget Watches – Five Variations: This legendary collection is available in 5 variations that attract a younger and more casual audience. These models speak for versatility to celebrate every instant. Two of these Piaget watches are chronographs, which come with an automatic caliber 1160P movement. They are equipped with either blue or black dial, featuring the date at the 6 o’clock position. The other three versions are powered by an in-house automatic movement. The dial has a date display at 6 o’clock positions and comes in silver, blue, and a slate grey option. Piaget Watches Conclusion Moreover, all the 5 models have brushed bezels that are complemented by polished stainless steel bracelets. To add on, they feature luminous markers and sapphire crystals, as well as water resistance up to 100 meters. The Polo S is definitely a game-changer that brings luxury to the owner and meanwhile pays homage to Piaget.

Considerations Before Buying a Desk Clock People who work all day at their desks often need a good quality desk clock to keep track of the time. Whether you are a professional handling multiple tasks simultaneously or a student managing assignments, it is vital that these jobs are completed in a particular time frame. By choosing a desk clock that reflects your taste, you can be better equipped to monitor the time that you are spending on tasks. Here are some crucial points that will help you narrow down your choice of best clocks: 1. Look for the best features Contemporary desk clocks are much more than a showpiece for your desk. They are not just a classy timekeeper but are also designed with many features that not only help you optimize how you spend your time. Nowadays, these desk clocks are equipped with multiple charging ports, thus providing users greater convenience in charging their devices. Many table clocks also come with intelligent alarm systems that allow them to set reminders all day. You can also pick a unit that is designed with larger hologram letters, making it easier to see the weather forecast, date, and time better. 2. Choose the style that matches the room decor Desk clocks vary in style. You can choose a modern design to give your desk a chic look. Or you can go with a more contemporary styling, which has experienced great development in the latter part of the 20th century.  For instance, contemporary styling refers to those desk clocks which are designed with rounded lines and softened edges instead of hard edges that are characteristic of modern designs. With contemporary styling, your primary focus is on bold colors combined with natural elements. The point, ultimately, is that, when choosing a desk clock, you have to keep in mind its line, form, and shape, and how all these things integrate with your room decor. 3. Desk clock materials Nowadays, you can find desk clocks designed from a variety of materials such as plexiglass, chrome, graphite, woodblocks, etc. These materials blend very well with both modern and contemporary desks. Some of them work well with transitional styling too, which features a mixture of traditional and modern designs. Choose a material that best suits your taste and goes well with your desk. Whichever beautiful desk clock you pick can easily serve as the focal point of your desk set collection. What Do Desk Clocks Tell About a Person? Besides being a useful timekeeper and a showpiece, desk clocks can also tell a person a lot about you. When you see a desk clock on someone’s table, you know that schedule and organization are important to them.  In today’s day and age, people tend to schedule their time on laptops on phones. But the addition of a desk clock gives an indication that the individual places critical importance on keeping an organized schedule. The aesthetic clock is a subtle way of telling classmates and co-workers that not only do you appreciate stylish class, but you also like to remain on time.
