They say that you can tell a lot about a man by the watch that he wears. It is, therefore, very important to wear a watch that not only reflects your personality, but one that also represents your goals, ambition, and success. This would effectively but subliminally send out the message that you are, as a matter of fact, a very good catch.
Now, if you are unsure where to start, going for a classic, traditional watch is always a great way to go. These are the kinds of watches that still accentuate your best, while also limiting much of the pretense. The good news is this doesn’t always have to cost a fortune. However, it is definitely a solid investment when it comes to building your personal brand, so if you have the means, then why not? And considering that a good watch can last a lifetime, it’s a pretty good investment, indeed.
Here are five of the most iconic men’s watches that will have the ladies sitting up and paying attention:
1. Rolex Day-Date President.
Rolex is, of course, the first brand that comes to mind when it comes to men’s watches. It is THE luxury watch brand that many desire and aspire for as having a Rolex timepiece means that you have really and truly made it. And possibly the most iconic and most recognizable Rolex timepiece there is, is the Day-Date. Dubbed as “The President”, it is a timepiece that has inspired legions of men to do great things without ever forgetting where they came from. No wonder it is the most imitated watch in the world.
2. Rolex Submariner.
The other Rolex in our list is none other than the famous Submariner. This was initially created as a professional diver’s watch in 1954. Over the years, however, it has outgrown its reputation as a specialist sports piece and has become quite the versatile, polytropic timepiece that it is today, thanks to its sleek, sturdy, and timeless design.
3. Patek Philippe Calatrava.
“You never actually own a Patek Philippe, you merely hold it for the next generation.” So goes the brand’s slogan. The Calatrava, in particular, embodies all that Patek Philippe stands for. As a matter of fact, it features the kind of design that you want to pass on for future generations. Not only that, it’s also the perfect kind of dress watch that you will want to accompany you in all of the most important events in your life. It’s more than just a watch, really. It’s family.
4. Omega Speedmaster.
To this day, this is the only watch to have ever been to the moon. It is also the official NASA standard issue timepiece, from the 1960s to the present. And there is a great reason for that. The Speedmaster has beaten five other formidable chronographs consistently for several decades. It’s a real legend, indeed, making it perfect for your legend.
5. Tag Heuer Monaco.
This is the watch famously worn by Steve McQueen in the film Le Mans. It is also one of the very first automatic chronographs ever created. It was a timepiece definitely ahead of its time – a real innovation, indeed. Hands down, nothing speaks of creativity and manliness better than the Monaco.
