Breguet Classique 5967

Breguet, one  of the most prestigious watch manufacturers operating today, has a rich history filled with important technical innovations most famously, the tourbillon, and clients included the royal court of King Louis XVI.

The Classique 5967 is for those with a taste for a slightly more decorative style of dress watch. With a manual winding mechanical movement that indicates only the hours and minutes, it features many of the hallmarks that distinguish a Breguet watch; around the case you have the classic coin edge (fluting) finishing; then you have the hand soldered lugs; and finally the guilloche dial is topped off with the iconic blued steel Breguet hands.

The Classique is slightly more ostentatious due its intricately decorated dial, the art of engraving dials being one of the brand’s signature features, unchanged since its founding over 230 years ago. The checkerboard or “Art deco Damier” design, which has a nice three dimensional effect, adds an interesting texture and richness to the dial and contrasts the simplicity of the overall design.

With a 41-millimeter-diameter case in yellow or white gold, the Breguet Classique is a slightly more ornate dress watch that is the distilled essence of the watchmaker and expresses an obvious classicism according to their own DNA. It retails for about $18,000. breguet.com

A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Thin

Measuring just 5.9 mm in height, the Saxonia Thin is the thinnest A. Lange & Söhne ever. Second to none in terms of craftsmanship, A. Lange & Söhne’s are regarded as one of the best high-end watch manufacturers, they are probably better known for their more complicated watches so an extra thin movement is slightly out of the ordinary for this prestigious German brand. The Calibre L093.1 in the the Saxonia Thin was developed specially for this model and is a mere 2.9 millimeters thick, but despite its diminutive stature, it still manages to provide an impressive 72-hour power reserve.

The dial of the Saxonia Thin is nicely balanced and features nothing more than thin baton hour markers with a small dot next to them and lancet hands. At 40mm, it's contemporary sized and combined with an understated discreet look, you have discrete luxury and classic elegance in a case that measures only 5.9mm thick. The movement is viewable through the sapphire case back. And, being an A. Lange & Söhne, it has a superb level of finish worthy of attention.

This refined, handsome dress watch has been distilled to the essence of timekeeping for people who enjoy low-key designs, it is presented in an 18-carat casing of either pink or white gold and costs $23,000. alange-soehne.com

Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 5119

A small round elegant watch with a fine mechanical movement, the Calatrava is considered the flagship line of models by Patek Philippe, a line first introduced back in 1932. You could say the Calatrava line is emblematic of the brand since they made the Calatrava Cross their brand emblem. Not only that, but it is the line that became most enduring for Patek Phillipe. This particular model, the 5119 and its ancestor the 3919, is considered by many to be one of the quintessential dress watches.

The original 3919 Calatrava model with its iconic and instantly recognizable “Clous de Paris” guilloché (hobnail-pattern) bezel was introduced in 1985 and was updated in 2006 with the Ref. 5119 Calatrava by increasing the bezel’s diameter from 33.45mm to 36mm, a change in size that reflects the growing trend for larger watches.

With black Roman numerals on white lacquered dial, the dial is perfectly balanced. The hour and minute hands are leaf-shaped and a subdial at 6 o’clock features a discreet baton-style seconds hand. Inside, the calibre 215 PS manually-wound movement provides about 44 hours power reserve housed inside a case with an ultra-thin silhouette of just 7 millimeters with satin-finished sides and mirror-polished lugs.

Available in white, pink and yellow gold, the white gold with black alligator strap is perhaps the most iconic version. A dress watch that captures the timeless character of the brand and will hold its value well, costing $23,000. patek.com

Piaget Altiplano

In 1874, Piaget started out making high-precision movements in a small workshop in La Côte-aux-Fées, a small Swiss village and went on to become a brand with an ultra-thin ideology

Ultra-thin movements were to become one of the company’s “signatures” especially after the launch in 1957 of the Calibre 9P. The world’s thinnest mechanical hand-wound movement at 2mm thick and the Caliber 12P in 1960, the world’s thinnest automatic movement measuring just 2.3mm thick. After the success of showing these record breaking watch movements at Baselworld, Piaget went on to become the choice of movie stars and the international jet-set of the 1960s, 70s, and 80s.

In 2010, to celebrate the 12P’s 50th anniversary, they launched the Altiplano with calibre 1200P , the worlds thinnest automatic movement at 2.35mm at time of launch. At 43 millimeters wide, it's a fairly substantial but a very slender wrist presence giving it a highly versatile contemporary look that can be worn as an everyday dress watch and also suit those formal occasions too. The watch case is available in 18k white or rose gold and retail is about $20,000. piaget.com

Vacheron Constantin Historiques Ultra fine

Vacheron Constantin are one of Switzerland’s greatest masters of ultra thin watchmaking. As far back as 1911, they produced three calibers each measuring just 2.82mm thick and in 1931, set a world record for a mechanical pocket watch movement measuring just 0.94mm.

Celebrating this heritage, the Historiques Ultra fine collection consists of two dress watch models, one in a round case, the 1955, and a square case model, the 1968. As implied by their names, they are re-interpretations of watches from Vacheron Constantin’s past. In the 1950s and 1960s, Vacheron Constantin produced the world’s thinnest wristwatches, and with the launch of the Historiques Ultra Thin 1955 and 1968 at the SIHH in 2010, they proudly paid homage with these tribute models in manual and self-winding ultra-thin movements.

Increasing the diameter of the original 4961 model from 32 to a more contemporary 36mm, the updated 1955 model is also slimmer. The in-house manual wind movement is according to Vacheron Constantin, currently the world’s thinnest mechanical hand-wound watch, at just 4.10 mm thick.  The 1955 and 1968 Ultra Fine models are neo-classical dress watches with a reference to the brand's rich history of innovation, but not just technically impressive, they also feature meticulous movement decoration and an exceptional degree of finishing which earned them the prestigious Hallmark of Geneva. Awarded only when a movement meets 12 technical and style criteria.  Retails for $26,000. vacheron-constantin.com

Parmigiani Tonda 1950

The Tonda is a tribute to Parmigiani founder Michel Parmigiani and its concept is back to the basic codes that are essential to the Parmigiani brand - an aesthetic purity defined by just the key markers of time: hours; minutes; and seconds.

Another important concept is that of flatness. The Tonda measures just 7.8mm thick thanks to the development of Parmigiani's 13th in-house caliber, an ultra-thin automatic movement with a micro-rotor and measuring just 2.6mm in height. The movement features a solid platinum rotor and is viewable through its sapphire case back.

The Tonda is complimented by a brown or black alligator strap and comes in 18K rose or white gold with an entirely polished finish. A grained white dial compliments the rose gold version and a graphite toned and textured one compliments the white gold version.

Measuring 39mm, the Tonda is a fine example of the dress watch genre, and one of the few high-end dress watches with lumed hands. Retailing for about $20,000. parmigiani.ch

      trj66 Well, the Reverso’s origins are in the sports watch department, but I agree with you…

  • Ulysses31

    Let’s take it from the top.  The Cartier Tank looks a bit ungainly in the company of these other sleeker watches, and has a cabochon that’ll have someone’s eye out – do they make pasties for watches?  
    Chopard LUC – excellent slim design but rather plain.  The hour numerals at twelve, three, six, and nine look like they were taken straight from a Photoshop font that is so bad nobody has the guts to use it any more (a la Comic Sans).  I’d still wear it but mostly for the technological prowess.
    The G.P also suffers slightly from the font thing but otherwise looks quite please aside from those jutting ledges on each lug that make it look like a mantle clock from your grandma’s house.
    Glad to see a Seiko here especially one as fine as a Grand Seiko.  It’s a simple but classic design that still retains a modern feel, thankfully lacking the whimsy of many Swiss pieces.  That particular model is a limited special edition with even tighter specs than a regular GS, between -2 and +4 seconds per day.  Add in Seiko’s traditional understatement when publicising their specs and you have a hell of an accurate watch.  Having said that, the price is high and I think I would choose a different model from their range – this is certainly far away from the entry point for owning a great high-end Seiko watch if you don’t mind the fancy metal and fractionally looser specs.
    JLC has made a lovely timepiece here – and cheap!  Well, relatively speaking of course.  It’s on the small side but I suppose dress watches can be forgiven for that, not really intended for extroverts.
    Breguet – beautiful elaborate dial, but where’s my seconds hand?  I admit it would take something away fro the elegance of this style but I like to see the progression of time on a watch.
    I don’t think i’ve seen many watches that I have lusted after more than those by AL&S.  Even this subdued member of the range stands out via impeccable workmanship and presentation.
    I’m not typically bowled over by Patek but i’ve heard a lot of people mentioning this Calatrava and I can see why.  It’s a timeless design and the finely crafted bezel looks great.
    The Piaget is slick and stylish and you could probably shave with it.  It’s a watch I think would look just as good on a woman as on a man.
    The VC doesn’t look good to me.  The proportions seem off and I don’t like the way the stubby lugs curve out from the relatively huge dial.  It just looks a bit bulbous and fat.
    The Parmigiani (which always reminds me of the cheese) looks bland.  Lumed hands don’t look right on this watch, as useful as they are.  OK, i’m bored of typiing now, but not as bored as you are for having read this

    How to Pick Up the Best Mens Watches Ever

    So, hopefully by now, you’ve had your favorite watch brand in your mind so that you can process further with your final decision.

    However, you have to understand that a watch brand might have an endless list of product lines in which many different watches get categorized under.

    That’s why you need to read this part of my guideline. Here, I will list all the main features you should take a look at before picking up new mens watches.

    Analog or Digital?

    analog or digital watchesSo, this the first question you have to answer. Which type of display would you want to have with your future timepiece?

    Perhaps the biggest advantage of analog chronographs is the beauty it brings along. It’s more attractive to people. And when you want to impress the ones around you, wearing an upper-class analog watch like Omega, or TAG Heuer will definitely help you in achieving that goal with the least effort required!

    Wearing a high quality analog watch (not necessarily means a luxury one) also make you feel better in important events such as company meetings, or other important events. Because you know that you’re having a signature item of men on your wrist that people can look at and admire.

    The analog display also makes it easier to read time at a glance. And when you’re in a low light environment, this type of display will save you especially the ones with luminous hands or dials.

    For digital watches, perhaps the biggest advantage of them over analog ones is that they can show you time exactly up to the second.

    Digital products also bring you more features and functions than an analog wristwatch could offer simply because they’re integrated electronic circuits!

    And thanks to the nature of their structure, digital watches seem to resist more to damages from sudden drops or hitting the wall. It’s because they don’t have any “moving” part inside comparing to the analog counterparts.

    So, what’s your choice? I think it’s reasonable for each person to have his own taste of what could be his best mens watches no matter if they’re analog or digital. Me personally, I would like to have both of them for occasional style changes.

    Quartz or Automatic or traditional Mechanical movement?

    quartz or automatic or mechanical movementThe watch movement is, no doubt, the most important part of a watch. It’s like the heart of a living entity. Without a reliable movement, the watch will fail in keeping time, which is its primary and most basic function.

    And no watches will be classified as the best mens watches without this basic feature!

    There are basically 3 main types of watch movement that you will encounter in nowadays’ watches.

    And the first type of movement that I want to talk about is the traditional mechanical movement.

    With this old-school engine, you will have to wind the watch manually to keep it ticking around. And many believe that their accuracy of time keeping is not that great. However, there are also many watches with this type of movement can keep time as accurate as other modern movements.

    And the reason why people still prefer mechanical watches especially luxury ones is that they represent master craftsmanship, beauty, the style of the wearer, and simply act like high-end jewelries that people will look at and admire. That is what you have in a few watches from the collection of Omega or other high-end watch makers.

    The second type of movement that I want to cover is the Quartz movement.

    Considered to be the most accurate watch movement used in commercial products, with this engine, you don’t have to wind anything. The watch will run with just a battery, and it can last for a very long time.

    Quartz is also the most popular choice for modern mens watches. Not only because it’s accurate but also it’s easier for watch manufacturers to add in the styles for their products thank to its compact design.

    You can see this movement in action in many collections from Casio, Citizen, Fossil, Invicta, and more.

    And the third type of movement that I want to cover is the Automatic movement.

    It’s still mechanical to its core. However, you don’t have to “wind” anything here. The engine will power itself thanks to the movement of your wrist and arm. And this reserved energy could help the watch last for a few days to even weeks depends on the design of the watch.

    And with this type of movement, you can rest assured with the time accuracy aspect as well though they’re not as accurate as the Quartz.

    Although I prefer the Quartz-powered timepieces since they’re accurate and are the most stylish in my opinion, the best mens watches by others’ definitions could be powered by any of the above engines.

    What crystal material should it be?

    sapphire watch crystalThe watch crystal, or the dial window, is another important part that you should pay attention to when picking up your new best mens watches.

    Like with the movement, there are basically 3 main materials used to create the crystal. They’re plastic, mineral, and synthetic sapphire.

    Plastic, or acrylic if you prefer “fancy” terms, is mostly used in digital watches. And its biggest advantage is the great ability to resist shattering. But it’s more vulnerable to scratches. However, the scratches on plastic windows can be removed easily. They’re cheap also.

    Mineral is another kind of popular watch crystal. It’s made of heat-treated glass that can resist both scratches and shattering. However, once it’s scratched, it’s not as easy to clean away as with plastic. And this type of crystal is also not as hard as sapphire also. So, it’s like in the middle of everything.

    And finally, synthetic sapphire is the toughest of all when it comes to watch crystals. Although it’s man made, it still has the hardness to resist almost all kinds of scratches except from diamond cuts. It’s not shatter proof also, but you should know that it’s really hard to shatter this kind of crystal with the normal activities you have everyday.

    Sapphire is a bit more expensive than other materials. That’s the reason why you will see mens watches with sapphire watch dial are often sold at much higher prices. But it’s well worth it in my opinion since you don’t want your watch to get damages beyond fixable.

    Watch case materials to know about

    titanium watch caseThe watch case is another important part of a watch that you need to pay attention to. It’s like a shield to protect the watch from shock, damage, and scratches.

    The most common material of all to use for this is stainless steel. It’s a heavy material used mostly in sport and aviation mens watches. The advantages of stainless steel is its resistance against scratches and can protect the watch from shock pretty well. It’s also a good anti-corrosion material.

    The only disadvantage that this material has is it can be allergic for people with sensitive skin. However, it’s very rare.

    Another great material used to craft the watch case is gold, especially 18k gold. These 18k gold alloys are more malleable than stainless steel and can be transformed into 3 colors for the case which are yellow, pink/rose, and white.

    It’s also a durable material that watch manufacturers use mostly for complicated chronographs such as the ones with perpetual calendar, tourbillion, etc. And it also represents the styles and might bear the memory of life’s important events of any man.

    Perhaps the biggest disadvantage of gold is price since gold is already an expensive metal.

    And here is a note, your next best mens watches might be made of gold, but that doesn’t mean all gold wristwatches are that great. So, pick your card carefully.

    And the third material for watch case you should know about is titanium. It’s lighter than stainless steel yet very durable and allergic-free. It can also withstand almost all kinds of corrosion and can stand up against very high temperature. The silver color of titanium makes it very attractive to use in mens’ jewelries such as watches.

    But like any other materials, titanium has its Achilles heel. It’s a bit easier to take scratches comparing to stainless steel. And once it takes, it’s very hard to remove the scratches.

    What to consider with the watch band?

    leather watch bandIf the case is what protects the watch from harm, then the band of the watch is what create the style for the bearer.

    There are basically 4 main materials used for this part of mens watches. They’re leather, nylon, rubber, and metal in general.

    The leather band can be made of many different skins from animals ranging from cow, horse, crocodile, to pig, calf, and even ostrich. This type of band is often found in sport watches and dress watches since it makes great look and often goes smoothly with a nice suit.

    Many watchmakers these days have this type of band for their products. And although mens watches with leather bands are definitely among people’s most picked up products, it doesn’t mean you should follow the crowd. Your best mens watches by definition might be the other way around.

    Nylon strap is another kind of band that you will often see in modern’s timepieces. It’s cheap, and can be replaced easily. You can see this type of watch band in action with mostly fashion wristwatches especially for women since they can offer a wide range of colors and hold an “energetic” feel that people love.

    If you’re with dive watches, then you will often come across rubber bands. The reason why rubber bands are chosen for diving watches is because they’re resistant to water and sweet, and are comfortable on the wrist.

    And last but definitely not least is the metal bracelet. You will often find that the bracelet will be crafted with the same material as the case. So, if you have a steel case, then the bracelet will be steel as well. And the same is true with gold and titanium.

    The advantages of metal bracelets are quite obvious. They’re much more durable than any other materials, often look more stylish, and are cooler for the wrist during hot days.

    Waterproof

    Perhaps the first thing you need to know in this section is that there is no watch with the “waterproof” ability you’re searching for. Means the watch can only resist water pressure to some extents. But just for familiarity sake, I will still use the “waterproof” term here.

    A water-proof watch might not be a great watch, but the best mens watches out there SHOULD have this feature. So, keep that in mind.

    And one of the most important things you need to look for in a waterproof watch is a screw-down crown. It acts like a safe seal that will protect the inner parts from harm of water.

    If you’re not sure how deep it should be for your watch to withstand the water pressure with your daily activities, here is a simple guideline:

    • 100 feet: suitable for daily activities, and no swimming for this
    • 165 feet: suitable for swimming for a short time, don’t dive with this one
    • 330 feet: suitable for swimming and diving
    • 660 feet and above: best for hardcore diving, swimming and other water related sports

    Special functions of the watch

    stylish timex watchesTo talk about special functions a wristwatch have will be a bit too much since there are a huge range of features that watch manufacturers imbedded into their products in order to deliver more value to customers.

    But there are some popular special functions that you will often come across such as chronograph subdials for stop/split timing, luminous watch hands for easy reading in dark environments, day/date window, dual-time display, alarm, and more.

    And my advice here for you is to pick up the watch that offers you exactly what you want to have and don’t try to go with too many features since the watch might be much more expensive and you won’t use all of them anyway.

    Prices & Styles

    Style is a matter of personal choices. So I won’t dive too deep into this subject. But let’s take a look at a few examples so that you will understand what you need to do in order to pick up the best mens watch for your money.

    If you’re a businessman and you have to meet up with clients and hold meetings that much, consider picking up mens watches with metal case and bracelet since it fits much better than a nylon-strap watch in those situations. On the other hand, you might want to have for yourself that same nylon-strap watch when you’re going outside hanging around with people in a nice summer day.

    And for prices, well, just don’t go broke with the watch you want to buy even if other people tell you that their luxury wristwatches are the best mens watches you should look at! Unless you have money to burn and are an enthusiast watch collector, a watch that priced at a few hundred dollars or less with multiple functions like I listed above is enough for you.

    What Would You Choose?

    That’s what I have for you today with the subject of picking up the best mens watches that will fit your needs, styles, and budget.

    There are definitely more to discuss about this subject matter. But I believe that with the above information, you’re now much more aware of what would make the ideal timepiece for yourself.

    You can take a look at my collection of the best mens watches from Bulova, Casio, Citizen, Fossil, Invicta, Omega, Seiko, Skagen, TAG Heuer, and Timex for more inspiration.

    Happy searching!
