Whether it’s the earthy texture of rugged brown leather or the clean lines of platinum chains, a watch acts as the thesis statement of his style. You can tell a lot about a man by what he puts on his wrist. Choose from a masculine take of trendy metallics or traditional silver and gold, intricately designed faces or easy-to-read designs, and traditional tones or surprising color for the perfect final touch.
