5 Best Luxury Watches For Men

Live life to the fullest that a celebrity can’t even do. We watch them all the time on the big screen, small screen, whether they’re actors, musicians, singers, athletes or tech entrepreneurs. Some of us want to be them, live like them and yes, also dress like them. To an extent, some of these folks inspire us to be rich, famous, eat the best food and buy the best products. Nothing wrong with that. But, life can still be lived better by most of us than most of the celebrities live their own lives.

Does it begin with fashion or with the money in the bank?

I’d say both. However, one can still live the life to the fullest if he’s working smarter. And, no you don’t have to be rich to be able to look great in your clothes and accessories. Also, it comes down to your health. Make sure it’s perfect. Remember, health is actually the true wealth.

The post is to focus on luxury watches for men, and since it’s about time and its importance, I got a little philosophical. But I’m sure the gist of what I’m saying has been taken.  At the end of the day, my friend, everything is up to us.

Oris is one of few Swiss brands to specialize in only making mechanical watches and is famed for being particularly fastidious about detail – each reference undergoes a rigorous 24-hour testing process before it is cased, and then again afterwards.

This ‘Aquis’ diver’s model is powered by the label’s signature automatic red rotor movement and encased in anti-corrosive stainless steel with a unidirectional rotating bezel. Though engineered to function under water (it’s waterproof up to 300m), the smooth leather strap means this piece also looks smart with tailoring on dry land.

Items measurements are:

  • Width of Strap – 2cm / 0.8in
  • Width of Face – 4.3cm / 1.7in
  • Max. Strap Length – 22.5cm / 8.9in
  • Min. Strap Length – 17cm / 6.7in
  • Weight – 163cm / 64.2in

Expertly crafted in Switzerland, Parmigiani Fleurier’s 40mm ‘Tonda Metrographe’ timepiece has a stainless steel case set with a deep navy chronograph dial that complements the black leather strap handsomely. It’s driven by the faultless PF315 automatic movement and has an exhibition case back showcasing the intricate mechanics and delicate finishes.

Mr Michel Parmigiani has always been fascinated by the process of building houses and bridges, so much so that he originally wanted to be an architect, and his attention to detail and quest for innovation have made his career in horology so rich in success.

Items measurements are:

  • Width of Strap – 2cm / 0.8in
  • Width of Face – 4cm / 1.6in
  • Max. Strap Length – 21.5cm / 8.5in
  • Min. Strap Length – 19cm / 7.5in

As for NOMOS Glashütte it is one of the few watchmakers worldwide that still produces its mechanical movements in-house – each one goes through a 50-stage testing cycle to ensure faultless performance. Expertly made in Germany, this ‘Autobahn Neomatik Datum’ reference features a reliable DUW 6101 calibre housed in a polished stainless steel case.

The clean dial makes it easy to read at a quick glance, while the durable nylon strap ensures it fits comfortably. It’s even luminous under UV light.

Items measurements are:

  • Width of Strap – 2cm / 0.8in
  • Width of Face – 4.1cm / 1.6in
  • Max. Strap Length – 21.5cm / 8.5in
  • Min. Strap Length – 18.5cm / 7.3in
  • Weight – 395cm / 155.5in

Cartier may have just introduced its ‘Ballon Bleu’ collection in 2007, but it’s quickly risen to be a brand best-seller. This automatic reference features a 42mm polished stainless steel case and an intricately etched silver guilloché dial with bold Roman numerals, blued steel hands and a calendar aperture at three o’clock.

The curved guard keeps the crown protected, while the smart black alligator strap will become increasingly soft and supple the more you wear it.

Items measurements are:

  • Width of Strap – 2cm / 0.8in
  • Width of Face – 4.2cm / 1.7in
  • Max. Strap Length – 26cm / 10.2in

And when it comes to class, known as the “brand with the guiding star”, Zenith has been crafting its Swiss-made timepieces for over 150 years. Aptly named, the ‘El Primero’ is a trailblazer of integrated chronograph movement and this ‘410’ model is as precise as ever – in fact, it operates at 36,000 VpH (vibrations per hour) and can mark time down to a tenth of a second.

The inky-blue face and alligator strap are complemented by day, date, month and moonphase indications to make sure all your bases are covered.

Items measurements are:

  • Max. Strap Length – 23.5cm / 9.3in
  • Min. Strap Length – 19cm / 7.5in
