Men's watch faces are typically black or white, but a navy timepiece is an equally classic option that adds a dash of color to your wardrobe. Whether it's a $100 Timex or a $10,000 heirloom, a blue watch has been a guy's staple since Steve McQueen sported his iconic Swiss TAG Heuer Monaco in 1971's race-car thriller, Le Mans – the color just feels right. All these navy-face styles are worth the investment because they're timeless. They'll look just as good in a few decades when you pass them down to your kids.
Raymond Weil Maestro
From one of the last independent Swiss watchmakers, this sleek machine – with its Roman dial, engraved bas-relief "clous de Paris" motif on the face, and leather strap – has high-end details but a sporting design that works on weekends, too. A great dress watch at a bargain price. [$1,395; raymond-weil.com]
