Men's Watch Styles - Dress Watches, Designer Watches and Sports Watches
Men's Designer Watches
These days all of the well known designers and design houses, offer a range of accessories, including designer watches. Many of these watches reflect the style and look of the designer's fashion or clothing, and fit in with their overall "look". For example, the Burberry designer watches include the iconic Burberry check, originally made famous from their raincoats. Classic designers such as Emporio Armani, Hugo Boss, Gucci and Burberry all offer watches that fit perfectly with their fashion lines Ė effortlessly stylish and elegant.
Mens Fashion Watches
It's possible that many retailers include fashion watches under their "Designer Watches" section. It's all a matter of taste and interpretation. But there are plenty of the more affordable fashion and designer names offering a great choice in watches that reflect the fashions of the day, such as wide cuff straps, oversized cases, a retro style form the 50s, 60s or 70s, unusual LED displays or even morse code time. These watches are usually offered by fashion labels such as Diesel, D&G, DKNY, Guess, Bench, Storm and Tokyoflash.
Men's Dress Watches
A dress watch is designed for evening wear, but if you choose a classic design, a dress watch can also be ideal for day wear, including office or business wear. Men's dress watches will often have a simple, elegant design, more subtle than a sports watch, with a thinner, smaller case, rather than a large, rugged case. Dress watches come with a variety of straps, often in leather or stainless steel bracelet style. Classic names in men's watches, such as Longines, Frederique Constant, Maurice Lacroix, Hamilton and Dreyfuss & Co make some stunning men's dress watches. There are also some wonderful dress watches from designer names such as Armani and Hugo Boss, and some very affordable dress watches from Kenneth Cole and DKNY.
Men's Sports Watches
A sports watch has to be tough, but also offer the right functions. But this doesnít mean it canít look stylish. Divers watches for example, have become one of the design classics of the 20th and 21st centuries. Who can deny that the Omega Seamaster range has it all. Itís no surprise that the Seamaster is James Bondís watch of choice. Sports watches often include chronographs or a tachymeter, with extra tough exteriors and a high level of water resistance. Just as sports clothing has become fashionable, likewise sports watches - men's watches that were designed with a particular sport in mind - have become fashionable and worn by many as an every day watch.
Men's Watch Functions - Chronograph, Tachymeter, Moonphase and more...
You might approach your search for the perfect watch by considering the functions your require from your watch. Divers, for example, like to have a chronograph function - a watch that tells the time and acts as a stopwatch. Other such sport like watch functions include altimeter (measure altitude) and tachymeter (measures speed). Or you may prefer something a little more peaceful, perhaps a moon phase, or perpetual calendar. There are dozens of different functions offered by watches. Find out more about watch functions here.
Men's Watch Movements - Mechanical, Quartz, Kinetic, Solar, Radio...
Maybe you have a specific watch movement in mind. Some watch owners prefer the old fashioned, mechanical or wind-up watches for example. After all, there's something very satisfying about winding a watch, and wearing a watch knowing it has been made using centuries old techniques. But perhaps it's something more modern you're after, such as a watch with a precise quartz movement, or the new technologies such as kinetic or solar powered (light powered), or even radio controlled, where your watch is set according to the radio signals it picks up. See this page for more about men's watch movements.
