As a working man, it's important to wear a watch that shows your ambition, maturity, and current or future success. If there's one thing I recognize for sure, watching fashion and ambition are related. Successful men wear classic and traditional timepieces that show off their goals but don't let them act too fake.
People notice which watch you wear.
People notice and value the little things. People notice your watch when you sit down at a table with executives. A watch shows that you are serious about your time and theirs. A watch shows you are responsible, grown up, and interested in progressing.
Seiko Solar Watch
Seiko, a Japanese company, has made a lot of classy, elegant watches that have kept time well over the years. This Seiko is a great-looking watch for a new professional that costs less than $100. Like most things from Japan, this simple clock is more than just a way to tell time. It's a great example of Japanese creativity.
This watch doesn't need batteries because it's powered by the sun. This is a plus for guys caring about the environment or tired of constantly changing batteries and rewinding watches. Even though many professionals might want to spend more on a watch, this one shows that you don't have to spend much to have a sophisticated one.
Tissot Dream Watch
Tissot is a well-known watch company based in Switzerland. You've seen this brand before, gentlemen into sports. Tissot is the authorized timekeeper of many major athletic competitions. Depending on the brand and model, Tissot watches can cost anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.

Tag Heuer Watch Aquaracer
The French luxury company Louis Vuitton-Moet Hennessy now owns the Swiss watch company, Tag Heuer. Tag Heuer makes high-end watches. Tag is an acronym for Techniques d'Avant Garde, which refers to designers who push the boundaries of fresh ideas, creativity, and design. Edouard Heuer, who started the company, had the last name “Heuer.”
Tags have a style that is both sporty and handsome, so they are a great choice for the sportsman. The Tag Heuer Aquaracer is one of the brand's classic styles. It has a simple and clean bezel and is a great watch for active men who are always on the go.
Tags are a mid-range luxury brand, so this watch's improved quality and craftsmanship make it worth around $1,600.
Raymond Weil Maestro Men's Watch
Raymond Weil is the new kid on the block in Swiss watchmaking. It was started in the 1970s. Raymond Weil's watches have a unique look and a classic, traditional style that gives them a touch of romance and elegant charm.

Baume & Mercier Riviera Watch
Baume & Mercier is a Swiss company making high-end watches since the 1800s. It is just as good and well-known as other Swiss companies. Baume & Mercier watches cost anywhere from $2,000 to $5,000 in the mid-range luxury watch market.
The Riviera series is a piece of watch history. In the 1970s, Baume & Mercier was one of the first watch companies to make stainless steel sports watches with dodecagonal cases with 12 sides for 12 hours. This style is reflected in the new Riviera.
The geometry of this bezel is what I like about it. It makes it stand out from other bezels. The Baume & Mercier Riviera does not need a battery because it is automatic and winds. This watch will cost you about $4,300, but it is worth the money.
Cartier Tank Solo Watch
My favorite watch brand is Cartier, the “King of Jewelers.” I have a Cartier Tank Solo watch, which I always get compliments on. It's a very beautiful piece. Cartier was the first company to make a square-shaped watch in 1917. The square shape of the Cartier Tank was based on the shape of Renault tanks from the First World War.
I love how this watch mixes the Cartier Tank Louis Cartier and the Cartier Tank Francaise in a modern way. The models that came before the Tank Solo are classic and well-known, and the Tank Solo brings that same elegance to the young man. This beautifully made watch costs about $2,600.
Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Watch
The Omega Seamaster honors Omega's long history in the maritime world. Omega watches are strong and commanding, so they work well for people who are also strong. I like to think of Omega as a brand that stands for adventure, high performance, and high achievement. This Semester's design is subtle, but its steel-on-steel look makes a powerful statement. It costs about $2,070 to buy.
Rolex Datejust Stainless Steel Watch
A Rolex is the crown jewel of every watch collection. Rolex is known for its classic, bold, classic, and strong style. Rolex is probably the most famous and well-known watch brand in the world. If I had to describe Rolex in one word, I would say it is handsome. The square links in a Rolex bracelet and the round bezel make it the market's most masculine and authoritative watch. In this model, the Roman numerals help soften the watch's look and give it a touch of elegance.
