You are looking for a men's watch that you can wear to the office. A watch that underlines your distinguished elegant appearance in customer conversations, that is jewelry and a functional time indicator. A watch that exudes seriousness and professionalism, builds trust and yet does not distract from your competence. Leather bracelet or metal bracelet, which fits better? Wooden wristwatch or Swiss chronograph? Seiko, Citizen and other well-known brands are guaranteed to have the right watch for you in their range. But what if you go to the gym? The elegant wristwatch you wear to the office in the morning is probably not waterproof and can't do much more than tell the time. For sports, you need a different watch. Depending on whether you sail, dive or run, whether you go swimming or do outdoor sports of any other kind, your wristwatch should fulfill certain functions. Here you can find out what you should look out for when buying your watch.
Again and again, career guides advise that men should not wear jewelry, that they should possibly also do without the wristwatch. After all, the smartphone, as a constant companion, reliably displays the time, so that the men's watch on the wrist seems somehow superfluous. Nevertheless, one or the other accessory is part of the business dress code - as long as it remains subtle and looks neat. Formal attire is only complete when the men's wristwatch matches it. Whether you prefer men's watches made of gold or silver, which are not too large and have a simple elegant design, or whether you opt for a modern model made of sustainable wood or with a comfortable leather strap, depends on your preferences. Cool precious metal looks extremely high-quality and classy, but not everyone likes the heavy straps on the wrist. wooden wristwatches also look extremely elegant, but are more delicate. The watches with the case and the strap made of renewable raw materials are still considered a modern, progressive idea and are not appropriate in every industry and for every situation.
Business Formal is the strictest form of dress code. Black or dark blue suit, white shirt, discreet tie and a maximum of one wristwatch as jewelry are the order of the day here. Below that, there are different gradations up to business casual, where even jeans in combination with a shirt and jacket are allowed. Men's watches come in as many gradations as the dress code. The one men's wristwatch that always fits, you might find at Seiko. Discreet silver metal cases, a simple dial and a black leather strap can almost always be worn.
Do you go to the swimming pool more often in your free time and value good lap times? Do you regularly cycle to keep fit and burn calories? Or do you run your laps in the park to train for the next marathon? Then your watch must be able to do more than just tell the time. Sports watches, depending on the type of sport you play, are
Men's watches with a stopwatch function are not rare at all. Running watches also have a function that allows you to save and compare lap times. If the men's watches are not only splash-proof, but waterproof (indicated in cash), you can even use the watches for swimming training. Diving watches cater to the special needs of diving in their special functions, and sailing watches score with integrated tide clock, compass and thermometer. Casio has such waterproof watches made of plastic and metal in its range, Citizen even carries them with a waterproof leather strap.
Men's sports watches are usually splash-proof or waterproof. But even in everyday life, men's watches sometimes get water. Whether you're washing your hands, an unforeseen downpour or washing your coffee cup, make sure your watch is at least splash-proof. When water enters the watch, the movement no longer works reliably, metal parts corrode, the watch is broken.
Changing the battery is no problem with splash-proof or waterproof men's watches. You should not change the battery at home, but have it replaced by an appropriately trained professional in the watchmaker's workshop. Well-known brands such as Citizen and Seiko even name trusted workshops for battery replacement.
The first step to the perfect watch is to think about when you want to wear the watch. There is no such thing as an all-rounder among men's watches: No manufacturer has watches in its range that you can wear for business formal and sailing. That doesn't add up. For this reason, most men have more than one wristwatch in their possession. There's nothing wrong with having two or three watches that you wear as needed. Important questions to answer yourself before buying:
Men's watches can be elegant like Boss, modern and sporty like Festina, or classic like Seiko. Sporty men's watches, on the other hand, can be found at Casio - but Citizen also has some interesting models in its range. Before you decide on a watch, you should be clear about the features you want, as well as your budget and the occasions on which you will wear the watch.
