Dress watches are suitable For any occasion
Although you may think that a sports watch can be very versatile, there’s always room for a good dress watch in your collection. Believe it or not, but a dress watch can be versatile in many ways too. You could wear it casually, or on occasions – special or not. Every man would love to have on in his collection since it would probably be the most used among the rest. It’s a great accessory to wear at work, or even beyond work hours. The Patek Philippe Calatrava might be the best “preference” that people are looking for when it comes to a dress watch, but there are many more remarkable ones on the list. That’s why we’ve prepared the top 10 dress watches for men that we greatly recommend.
Dress Watches for Men
#1 Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Duoface Watch Q3908420
It’s burgundy red dial is a head-turner in a good way. It seems to be a bit of a trend this year, as Oris and Omega also decided with the burgundy red dials for their watches. Matching perfectly with also a burgundy red leather strap, this Jaeger-LeCoultre is an ultimate must if you’re willing to spend. The case is made of steel and measures 45.6 mm x 27.4 mm x 8.5 mm. Inside it is a hand-wound JLC caliber 822/1 movement.
#2 Breguet Classique Automatic-self-Wind Male Watch
Perhaps this is the closest to the Patek Philippe 5227 in terms of prestige. It’s available in some variations, which include the beautiful hand-engraved dials. We love the white enamel dial the most and chose it for the list. With a diameter of 39 millimeters, it is one of the smaller watches among our picks. The Breguet Classique is powered by a self-winding caliber 777Q movement, with a power reserve of 55 hours.
#3 Omega Constellation Globemaster 126.96.36.199.02.001
Available in steel, gold & steel, gold, and platinum, the Constellation Globemaster which was originally introduced in 2015 is actually their first watch to have the METAS certified chronometer movement at that time. However, it’s inspired by those first Constellation models from the early 1950s with pie-pan dials. IT has a 39mm diameter and a thickness of 12.5mm. It isn’t the thinnest but is perhaps a handsome dress watch. It has a caliber 8900 movement inside that has a power reserve of 60 hours.
#4 Grand Seiko Spring Drive SBGA211
Among the newest elegant dress watches that Grand Seiko introduced this year, this yellow gold version with reference SBGA211 is our pick. With a case diameter of only 41mm, it’s remarkably elegant. Its thickness of 12.5mm isn’t something to complain about but is certainly a match for this watch.
#5 Piaget Altiplano Automatic Watch 15958
This timepiece in rose gold might not be for everyone, due to its meteorite dial. Piaget has various Altiplano models though, but as a dial material, the meteorite is the best for us. This watch measures 40mm in diameter and is 6.5mm thick. It isn’t the thinnest of its model, but thin enough to be a good candidate for a dress watch. Inside it is a caliber 1203P with micro-rotor. It is the sapphire case back that allows you to see the beautiful looking movement.
#6 Cartier Santos Dumont WSSA0022
The Cartier Santos Dumont has a classic design – polished bezel with screws, a beautiful crown with blue synthetic cabochon-shaped spine and wonderful design and iconic dial. It is quite a specific and high-precision quartz movement, but still, it is quartz. It’s simply lovely, and comes with a case diameter of 43.5mm x 31.4mm and is 7.3mm thick.
#7 Chopard L.U.C Quattro White Gold Limited Edition
Chopard created an elegant L.U.C. Quattro watch, it has a power reserve up to 9 days. The vertical satin-brushed blue dial framed by the white gold case; it expresses a subtly different spirit by the use of hue that is radiating an aura of extreme distinction. Moreover, Chopard chooses the shade of blue which is directly inspired by English tastes such as those pervading the private clubs, along with the format but the eccentric aura of elegance.
#8 Hamilton Intra-Matic H38455751
The Hamilton Intra-Matic is the most accessible watch on the list so far. It’s also available in stainless steel and in a smaller 38mm diameter, but we like the 42mm better. It is a perfect accessory during formal occasions but can also be your daily companion for years. It has an ETA 2892-A2 movement which is certainly not something to overlook. The main attraction of the watch is its smoked dial, which is uniquely stunning.
#9 Blancpain Villeret Ultraplate
No doubt this is a classic dress watch – with a round gold case, two hands, no date and no seconds, who would think unlike? It’s minimal and simply beautiful. It’s available in 40mm with a case made of red gold, only 7.39mm in height with a sapphire case back allowing you to view its fascinating caliber 11A4B hand-wound movement with a thickness of only 2.8 mm. It’s a new movement with 95 hours of power reserve. It has a pretty dial which is opaline and has applied roman numerals in gold. This watch is available on a leather strap, but can also be found with a stainless steel bracelet.
#10 Glashütte Original Senator Sixties Panorama Date
This model was introduced earlier on in a beautiful green dial, but this year, GO showed us the watch in fiery orange. It’s also available as a no-date watch. but the panorama date is quite cool. This watch measures 42mm in diameter and has a 12.4mm height. You’ll find an automatic caliber 39-47 movement which offers 40 hours of power reserve and of course, the panorama date function.
