Watch is most popular accessory among men that is functional, tells you the time and also makes a personal statement regarding your personality. What kind of person are you? You may be adventures or a sports guy. A sports watch will depict that. When buying a watch thing to consider includes dial, movement, case resistance, bracelet. Right now watches have quartz, mechanical automatic and mechanical self-winding movement. Always try to buy automatic mechanical watch as you will never have to replace or charge its battery. Automatic movement watch charges itself with the movement of wearer’s wrist. A quartz watch requires a battery to operate. Self-winding automatic watch needs to be winded manually by the user.
I personally like automatic movement. Not everyone can buy expensive yet good looking Iwc Aquatimer. Hundreds of watches hit market every year so here are my top five picks for year 2019.
- Seiko 5 Black Dial Automatic Watch ($132)
This Seiko has unique and true bold modern design. The dark black dial suits well with the silver chain wristband. Watch is enclosed in stainless steel case and deploys a push button clasp with safety lock. Dial shows day,date along with the time. Markers ion this watch is luminous and it is also water proof upto 100m depth.
- Victorinox Men’s ‘Alliance’ Swiss Stainless Steel Automatic Watch ($328)
This watch has a minimalistic classy look. It is also very salient, you cannot hear the tick. It features swiss automatic movement, stainless steel 40mm case, anti-reflection sapphire crystal and see through case back. See through case back allow you to admire swiss movement in action. The dial has silver grey markers. Minute and hour hands are also greyish silver and second hand is having red color which looks great. This watch has date function as well.
- Hamilton Unisex Khaki King ($400)
This is the most expensive watch on my list but it is not that expensive. The name suits it perfectly. Khaki King Automatic is the explorer’s watch. It is very solid, low profile and comfortable timepiece. Watch has swiss automatic movement, 40mm case, anti-reflective sapphire crystal window and 20mm wide band. It is water resistant to 50m. It has day and date function at 12’o clock. The anti-reflective coatedsapphire crystal looks great. It has a very fine polished bezel.
- Invicta Men’s 8932 Pro Diver ($56)
This is the cheapest watch in my list but this does not mean it is not an excellent timepiece but do not use it for diving as its name depicts it is a divers watch, it cannot hold water pressure for good. You should not expect it to at this price point. This watch has stainless steel case, screw down crown and diver buckle. It is as classic watch and will look good with dress. You can wear it on work. This watch looks superb with black dial and silver hands.
- Seiko Analog Blue Dial Men’s Watch ($100)
