If you’ve caught yourself eyeballing your man’s wrist-candy, then you’re totally on trend. Who can resist the look of the heavy, sexy piece of metal? Like a statement pair of sunnies, it instantly adds character to your entire look. In fact, many designers and brands are now making unisex accessories – a welcome change from the dainty jewellery-like watches women have worn for decades.
The boyfriend watch is also a thing, but that one still had feminine elements. We’re digging full-on manly watches these days.
Join us as we list eight of our favourite men’s watches.
The leather straps on this beauty only accentuates the authenticity of the chunky metal dial. Pair it with your favourite denim and a matching tan leather satchel to make a style statement!
