How to Wear Men’s Luxury Watches

Paul Altieri

Wearing men’s luxury watches is the best way to elevate your outfit, make a good impression, and if you’re in the right room, start a conversation. That’s because strapping a luxury watch on your wrist makes you part of an exclusive club of men who value quality, style, and the art of precision timekeeping.

If you’re new to the club, then there are a few things that you should know. Styling your men’s luxury watches isn’t exactly the same as wearing your traditional, mid-grade fashion watches. So, here’s everything that you need to know.

Of course, you can dress it up

Men’s luxury watches are pretty easy to dress up. Forged out of only the world’s finest materials and often featuring eye-catching designs, they make the perfect companion to any black-tie event or romantic dinner date.

However, even if you’re not sporting a Rolex President, you can still dress up your luxury watch. For example, a polar Explorer II can easily be dressed up with the right suit and tie. Same with a GMT-Master with a Pepsi bezel – you just need to find the right shirt or jacket to pair with it. At the end of the day, luxury isn’t about being stuffy; it’s about pairing quality with style to reflect your unique personal tastes.

You can dress it down, too

Contrary to popular belief, a luxury watch doesn’t (and shouldn’t) sit in your drawer waiting for the perfect special occasion. Today, most luxury watch owners wear their timepieces regularly, dressing them both up and down to find fun and creative ways to integrate them into their everyday wardrobe – whether that’s at the office, on the boat, or at the kids’ soccer game. So, don’t be afraid to wear your men’s luxury watches with your favorite jeans and a pair of clean, stylish sneakers.

You can keep it on forever

Okay, maybe not literally. However, many luxury watches are built and designed to be part of your daily wardrobe. For example, if your watch runs on an automatic movement, that means it actually gets the power to run from the motion of moving your wrist. If it sits in your drawer without being worn, it will actually stop keeping time until you take it out and start wearing it again.

Additionally, many luxury timepieces (but certainly not all) are water-resistant. This means that you can get away with wearing your luxury watch practically all the time – like in the shower, by the pool, and everywhere in between. For example, although the Rolex Datejust was not specifically designed for watersports or scuba diving, its famous Rolex Oyster case offers users 100 meters of water resistance, meaning that it is more than capable of handling whatever activities you might throw at it. This is the kind of watch that you can get away with wearing to work, the gym, and even your next poolside vacation without any hesitation.

But always remember to care for your men’s luxury watches

Properly caring for your luxury watches is an important part of ownership. While these timepieces are built with superb quality, cutting-edge technology, and the world’s best materials, you still need to take care of them to ensure that they stand the test of time. This means making sure they are wound, storing them properly, and getting them serviced periodically to guarantee that they remain running smoothly and last a lifetime.
