In this guide we go over some of the best picks for men’s timepieces in 2019. This guide features some of the best timepiece brands that are in existence. Not all of the featured watches are expensive, as there are pieces that can fit anyone’s budget listed right here.
AUDEMARS PIGUET ROYAL OAK CHRONOGRAPH
Audemars Piguet, also known as AP, is a favorite amongst collectors and world renown. The company was founded in 1875, and the Royal Oak is the brand’s most popular timepiece. We love this simple stainless-steel watch with a blue Grand Tapisserie pattern dial. It features a self-winding manufacture calibre 2385 movement and boasts a 40-hour power reserve, and is water resistant to 50 meters.
BAUME SMALL SECONDS
Baume is a new brand that launched in 2018. The brand aims to use sustainable, recycled and up-cycled materials when possible, and the elegant timepieces are fully customizable, with over 2000 permutations achievable on their online configuration tool.
BELL & ROSS BR03-92 NIGHTLUM
This timepiece is for men who prefer square watches. There are no complicated bells and whistles with the Bell and Ross BR03-93. It has its roots in the aviation field, which is a heritage that the designers at B&R have clearly channeled into the BR03’s straightforward, seconds to minutes to hours to date design. It features a sapphire crystal face and a hard-wearing leather strap.
BLANCPAIN FIFTY FATHOMS
Blancpain, the world’s oldest watch brand, founded in 1735. The Blancpain Fifty Fathoms featured here, is also one of the world’s first diving watches. This model, updated in 2018, features a striking blue bezel, dial and canvas strap. Each piece is designed and assembled in Switzerland, and embodies all the luxury you would expect from such a historic brand such as Blancpain.
Inspired from Dieter Ram’s classic design, the Braun BN0021 is an understated, sharp and sophisticated timepiece. It is not too bulky with its 38mm diameter and at only 8.5mm thickness it is perfect for industrial design fans.
BREITLING NAVITIMER B01 CHRONOGRAPH
The Navitimer, the most iconic and popular collection from Breitling has been a favorite with aeronautical enthusiasts since its initial release over 65 years ago in 1952. This timepiece boasts a 43mm stainless-steel case with a transparent case back that displays the impressive COSC-certified self-winding movement. It is accurate to -4 to +6 seconds a day and has an impressive 70-hour power reserve.
BREMONT JAGUAR MKI
Bremont, a favorite English watch brand amongst collectors. Despite its appearance, Bremont has only been around since 2002. Their range of timepiecs were built in collaboration with Jaguar to celebrate the historic Jaguar E-Type. The MKI is a beautifully crafted timepiece that features a slim steel case and black tachometer-inspired dial. The winding crown resembles the original Dunlop tire tread, and features Bremont’s anti-chock movement.
CARTIER TANK SOLO
When it comes to the Cartier Tank, there is nothing more elegant. It was originally created by Louis Cartier over 100 years ago in 1917. First presented to General pershing of the American army during World War I. This model is powered by a reliable quartz movement and is enclosed in a 31mm 18K rose gold and stainless-steel case.
CASIO CLASSIC LEISURE ALARM CHRONOGRAPH
Okay, so the first word that comes to mind with this is probably not elegant, but sometimes occasions call for a cheap, durable digital timepiece. You could of course purchase a classic Casio in black like most people do, but where would be the fun in that? This timepiece is compact and unobtrusive on the wrist and features a digital display that shows the time, day and date.
CERTINA DS ACTION DIVER POWERMATIC 80
Fulfilling all of the requirements of the ISO 6425 standard, is the Swiss made diver’s watch the Certina DS Action Diver Powermatic 80. It is a waterproof timepiece up to 300 meters and has a boastful power reserve for up to 80 hours. A smart and tempting package considering the timepiece costs.
CHRISTOPHER WARD C65 TRIDENT DIVER
Christopher Ward has moved towards a more retro perspective with its latest range of timepieces. This brand appears to just get better and better each year. The C65 Trident Diver comes in a durable 41mm case that houses a mechanical movement and comes at a very attractive price point for those even on the slimmest budgets.
