It doesn’t matter if you’re cutting the grass or attending a black tie gala, there’s a watch that makes sense with everything. We believe that a man should feel naked without a timepiece covering his wrist (or sitting in his pocket). After all, at the party when the cute person you’ve been exchanging glances with finally breaks the ice by asking you what time it is, you’d better be ready. Whether you’re looking to drop some serious coin or balling on a budget, here are five options for every stage of a gent’s life.
The Job Seeking Gent
It’s commonly stated that while interviewing, you don’t want to have a more expensive watch than your potential new boss. At $125, MVMT has created an awesomely stylish watch at an even more awesomely affordable price. It’s guaranteed to grab attention, but not in a way that’s going to make you look gaudy. Good luck out there!
The Newly hired Gent
For $300, Wellington has designed a timeless piece that’s also extremely versatile. It’s an affordable option plus it’s a great gift to yourself for landing that first job. It’ll look great with your suit at the office and also with a casual button up and denim on Saturday. Beware, chicks love rose gold.
The newly promoted gent
A classic watch company like Omega is going to offer some of the finest design and product that money can buy. At $6,250, this timepiece is a celebration of accomplishment. It should be worn proudly with the understanding of having been earned. Congrats on your promotion!
the entrepreneurial gent
As an entrepreneur, a trusty watch is extremely important because of the erratic state of your schedule. Shinola offers this Moon Phase version of their popular Runwell style for $600, so it’s not necessarily breaking the bank but it’s an investment in your own success. Also, the moon phase is helpful for those long hours in front of your computer when you’re not entirely sure whether it’s ok to be drinking that glass of bourbon. Hint: if you see a moon, bottoms up!
the tenured gent
You’ve done it! You’ve reached the pinnacle of professional success that ensures you will never lose your job. It’s time to celebrate with a classic watch from a classic American brand, Tiffany & Co. The CT60 is swiss-made and at $15,000, will be something that you can count on having forever. Pass it down to your son, just don’t let him wear it to his first job interview!
