In Style: Black Watches


The great thing about black watches is that they can go with just about any outfit. Pair one with a three-piece suit for that 007 vibe or go with jeans and a tee for the laid-back, classic cool look. Here are six pieces worth checking out:

TechnoMarine Black Chronograph, $1,690
Offering three chronograph features, this TechnoMarine is constructed of a stainless steel case and bezel, and comes with a rubber strap that’s perfect for H2O activities (it’s water resistant to 656 feet). The silver hands, accents and sub dials give this watch a masculine, yet sophisticated, look.
Movado Museum Classic, $495
With it’s clean, simplistic dial, Movado’s Museum Classic is one of the most iconic watches of the modern era. The silver-tone hands and Movado’s signature dot at the 12 o’clock position give a minimalistic appearance that goes well with a suit or for just bumming around on the weekends. Given Movado’s reputation for manufacturing reliable pieces, this watch will serve you well for years to come.
Bulova Accutron Curacao Collection
This piece from the Bulova Accutron Curacao Collection features luminous hands and markers, a screw-down back and crown, a stainless steel case, a unidirectional elapsed time bezel, and it’s water resistant up to 660 feet. Plus, it just looks badass.
Hugo Boss HB 2001, $550
Tough, yet sophisticated, the HB 2001 is the go-to watch for any man looking for a balance in life. It’s perfect for the no-strings-attached kind of guy who wants one watch for every occasion. In terms of functionality, the 2001 features a black IP-coated case, a silicone strap, and luminescent hands and hour markers that make for easy readability in low-light situations.
Alessi Daytimer by Will Alsop, $120
Not your typical digital watch, the Daytimer is a salute to modern design and functionality. Its approach is simple: A clean OLED display that lights up only when you push the side button. The concept saves battery life and makes the watch a minimalist’s dream.
Seiko Coutura Alarm Chronograph SNAC41, $525
Seiko hit the nail on the head with this futuristic watch, which features a black ion finish, three subdials, an alarm, chronograph functions, a sapphire crystal, and it’s water resistance of up to 100 meters.
