A trench coat, a great bag, slim fitting jeans, etc. This time we’re talking watches. Now, listen up fellas… a killer watch is what separates the men from the boys, can make or break your job interview, and possibly score you the next date you go on. Here are my picks for the watches that lead the pack, and get you numbers at the bar.

Find the best mens watches from Rolex, David Yurman, Timex and others. Always the best price, these mens luxury watches are great for every day or a night out with the boys.

Best Mens Watches by Preston Konrad

The Best You Can Get

  • Rolex Submariner

    Preston says: This is the watch of all watches. I can’t tell you guys how utterly amazing this watch is. Sean Connery, James Bond himself wore this watch in “From Russia With Love” in 1954. If that doesn’t speak volumes about this watch then maybe the following will. Besides looking amazing with its black oyster pearl and chrome face, this watch is designed to perform. It will withstand temperatures below 45 degrees and can be taken underwater up to 1000 feet. This watch is true performance luxury and it one of the classics. This is an investment piece gentlemen, so cancel the family vacation (for the next two years) and start saving. It’s worth every penny.

    • Waterproof
    • Self-winding
    • Classic
  • Toy Gold Chronograph Watch

    Preston says: TOY brand watches are the newest and most unique watches on the block. They are made of acrylic (yes, plastic) and are insanely light weight and cool looking. This watch is both clear acrylic and gold with a large chronograph face. Get the look of the $25,000 Rolex Daytona with this inexpensive version. I own this watch and get compliments everywhere I go with it on.

    • Displays day and date
    • Quartz movement
  • Panerai Luminor Submersible PAM00025

    Preston says: This watch was introduced in 1956 as a diving watch for the Egyptian Navy and is still one of the most highly sought after watches on the market. Like the Rolex submariner, it can be taken underwater up to 1000 feet and is a true performance (and investment) piece. The titanium face makes this watch feel very light while the rubber straps give an added level of comfort.

    • 44mm diameter
    • Titanium casing
  • Breitling Chron-o-matic

    Preston says: Breitling is one of the world’s most premier purveyors of watches and has been since 1884. The chronomatic was originally designed to be worn by pilots and now is worn by some of the world’s most influential men. The rose gold hardware adds undoubted luxury while the steel reinforcements scream power-player (whether you’re flying a plane or just flying down the freeway).

    • 18k rose gold
    • Self-winding
  • David Yurman Belmont

    Preston says: If chunky, aviation, or diving style watches are not your thing, you may want to opt for one of these babies from David Yurman. The Belmont watch is sleek and handsome boasting a black alligator strap and classic stainless steel face. This watch is great for more formal occasions or the workplace.

    • 41mm
    • Stainless steel
    • Date window

You will be happy with any of these

  • Timex Expedition Field Watch

    Preston says: This watch is all about style, function, and value. The extra large face is reminiscent of WWII aviator watches yet everything about this watch is new and cool… and the price couldn’t be any cooler. For about $50.00, you can own a great, vintage inspired watch and run with the big dogs. The straps are available in brown or olive green and the face is all white. Timex also offers a one-year warranty and ten-year battery life with all of its watches, which adds to the great value of this watch.

    • Water-resistant
    • Indiglo night-light
    • Analog movement
  • Dolce and Gabbana Medicine Man

    Preston says: This is the funkier of the bunch. This multi-colored watch will bring out your inner Kanye West for sure. Red, pink, green, yellow, and blue color blocks are scattered across the square face of the watch for a modern, young look. This is a great option for you urban outfitters/Nike dunks wearing guys out there… classy yet fun and not too overly sophisticated. Wear with a white t-shirt and jeans for a pop of color and fun.

    • Stainless steel
    • Indiglo light
    • 40mm width
  • Michael Kors Bracelet Watch

    Preston says: The tortoise print resin band makes this watch scream ‘jet-set’. Michael Kors has made a great watch here that looks like a million bucks (but won’t cost you nearly that much). The face has three eyes all displaying different time zones. It closes with a trifold spring lock closure; it is also lined with a strand of Pave crystals. Pair this watch with a great pair of white linen pants and button down shirt for a trip to Mexico or with a light chino suit for the office.

    • 31.75mm face
  • Baume and Mercier Classima

    Preston says: Baume & Mercier is considered one of the oldest and finest watch manufacturers and has been producing watches for men since 1918. Perfect for the workplace or for the weekend, this watch is classic and simple, yet looks powerful. This is a great luxury alternative to a Rolex. It is water-resistant, displays the date, and has automatic movement.

    • Stainless steel
    • Leather strap
    • 39mm diameter face
  • Rolex Cosmograph Daytona

    Preston says: The Daytona was introduced into the watch world in 1961 and was worn by Paul Newman. It is a favorite of professional drivers and looks like it would be. I know most of us men will never need to calculate average speeds and lap times, but the hardware and dials on the face that do so make us look like we have a garage full of Maserati cars. For this watch, ask her for your birthday, Christmas, and anniversary presents in advance, guys.
