There are so many different designs and features that it can be a little overwhelming – but we’re here to help you with all that! We’ve taken a look at four different watches here today and they all have something great to offer. So without further ado – four practical dress watches!
Best Dress Watches:
Alexander Heroic Pella Multui-function Chronograph
This Alexander Heroic is considered one of their large dress watches – it offers a classy black colour that will look great with almost any potential dress outfit whether it’s a business suit or a tuxedo. The roman numerals offer a high class look and feel on the black dial that is encased with black stainless steel. The dial also features chronograph sub-dials that offer the most accurate time keeping.
Luminous hands make it possible to tell time whether it is day or night – making this a great option for a late night out no matter where you’re going. The movement for this watch is run by Swiss quartz allowing the analog watch to keep time accurately. There is also a date feature on this watch – which is pretty standard for this style of watch. The calfskin band is black and has a buckle clasp keeping a simple and classic look.
Tissot Men’s T-Sport
Style and simplicity are what come to mind when looking at the Tissot Men’s T-Sport. This particular model offers a black dial with chronograph sub-dials as well as a date indicator at the 4 o’clock measure. The black dial is accented with a silver shaded stainless steel casing and bezel and luminous hands on the analog display.
The black leather band buckles for easy use – though this is a rather heavy watch when compared to many like it. It is water resistant up to 330 feet (100 meters) which makes it an excellent option for water sports, fishing or swimming, though it would not be recommended for diving. The quartz movement and scratch resistant sapphire crystal cover definitely set this watch apart from some in a similar price range.
Citizen Men’s Eco Drive
When it comes to finding a unique dress watch, Citizen has many great watches to choose from – though the most popular are probably the Eco Drive series. These watches are really neat because the offer a classy chronograph look, but rather than having multiple dials for variations of time the chronograph dials feature a 24-hour dial with day and date dials as well. So rather than having a small extra that tells the date, the sub-dials offer it instead.
The casing is made of two-tone steel that offers a very classic gold look that matches the brown calfskin leather band perfectly. It runs on Japanese quartz movement to power the analog display. You can safely take this watch under almost any conditions as it is water resistant up to 330 feet (100 meters) and the mineral glass cover is extremely durable This watch really has a lot to offer that sets it apart for the price it is offered.
Invicta Men’s Collection Chronograph
If you aren’t ready to invest more than a hundred dollars into a watch, than the Invicta is a practical dress watch at an affordable price. The silver look of this stainless steel watch is classic and will go with just about any style of dress clothes. Even better is that this watch says classy with a professional suite and tie – but with a pair of shorts and a t-shirt it says casual and will not look out of place. The Invicta happens to be a small dress watch compared to some others.
The dial offers large numbers that are easy to read at a glance – the minutes are numbered around the bezel. There are three chronograph style sub-dials – one for 30 minutes, one for 60 seconds and one for the day of the week. The numerical day of the month is displayed in a window on the 4 o’clock indicator. Running on Swiss quartz movement this analog watch has a lot to offer for the price including luminous hands and water resistance up to 330 feet (100 meters).
Why A Dress Watch?
These watches all took a look at a more classic and professional style – they work perfectly as a dress watch with just about any style outfit. They also all have high quality materials – almost every dress watch strap was made out of calfskin leather for example. Really, which watch you decide on will be determined by how much you are willing to spend and what style suites you best.
If you are only able to invest in one watch for the time being, but still want to go with something higher end to start, then you will love the fact that most dress watches can still pull off casual with most wardrobes. At least that means you will have a multi-functional watch until you can afford to expand your collection!
