Whether we find enormous, colorful, and overdone graphics a distraction, or we simply don’t want to be a walking billboard for a brand without receiving compensation for it, some guys prefer simple and clean clothing and accessories over obtrusive logos and overdone graphics.
Also: Best Watches Under $200
We found a handful of wristwatches for men that we think will cover a lot of ground and styles. All of these minimalist watches have their own claim to something cool — from voice-command and smartphone compatibility to ultra stylish and sleek, these timepieces will all class up your wrist …
Pictured: #1. Movado Men’s “Museum” Watch ($500 @ Amazon.com)
No clutter or excess numerals or seconds. This simple and smooth watch from Movado is water-resistant up to 99 feet, features a Swiss quartz movement, and an analog display. The window is synthetic sapphire and the band is made from black leather.
#2. Compatible with both Apple and Android smartphones and tablets, the Martian Watches Notifier Smartwatch ($100 @ Amazon.com) watch notifies when you receive a call, text message, email, or social media shoutout. You can also use it to track fitness stats and — that’s right! — keep time.
Beyond that, the Martian looks pretty damn sharp with its 1.5-inch OLED display with 96 x 16 pixels of resolution and streamlined yet not overpowering presence. It’s tech-classy … which is a style category we may have made up.
#3. Stainless steel, scratch-resistant glass, and the ability to synch with your Android phone to double as an activity tracker (heart rate, steps taken, etc.), the Motorola Moto 360 Smart Watch ($315 @ Amazon.com) also has a 1.5-inch LCD touchscreen and the ability to communicate with you via voice commands.
#4. The titanium grey mesh bracelet has a old-over push-button clasp and the durable mineral crystal faceplate are both tough materials that keep this Skagen Men’s Melbye Quartz 3 ($140 @ Amazon.com) timepiece safe from dings and scratches. It’s lightweight, water-resistant up to 165 feet (and suitable for swimming or showering) and features a quartz movement.
#5. The Nixon Men’s Identity Watch ($150 @ Amazon.com) provides all you need without overcrowded the clock face: a date indicator, backlit luminous hands, and a dial that outlines the hours, minutes, and seconds. The housing material is made of stainless steel and the face material is mineral crystal.
