    Men's wristwatches and their features

    Men who have not yet really got to grips with watches often do not realise just how wide the range of men's watches is today. The market offers numerous different types of watches for men, which at first glance differ in design, but at second glance also in the functions and philosophy behind them. From the simple radio-controlled watch with a minimal range of functions to classically elegant analogue watches and complication-rich masterpieces of watchmaking, a wide range of possibilities opens up to the interested watch fan.

    The complications: Concentrated functionality on the wrist

    Complications are what defines a watch in the eyes of many collectors and long-time watch enthusiasts. They determine what a watch can do on a functional level and in many cases can only be realised through excellent craftsmanship and technical skill. In principle, this includes everything that goes beyond the mere display of hours, minutes and seconds, for example these functions:

    Power reserve display

    The power reserve display makes it easier to wind mechanical watches at the ideal time and thus achieve optimum accuracy. The function is often realised in the form of a scale with a hand on the dial, whereby the hand then moves to the lower end of the scale as the power reserve decreases and starts again at the top after winding.

    Date display

    The date display on the wristwatch does exactly what its name suggests: It shows the date. A small, transparent window is usually integrated into the dial for this purpose, behind which a date disc sits and indicates the day. To improve legibility, some manufacturers use magnifying glass above the date numerals, which are often positioned at the three o'clock point. The alternative is a pointer date, where the hand moves along a scale on the face of the watch to the current date.

    Moon phase

    A comparatively rare complication is the moon phase display. Men's watches with this function display the moon in its current phase, often actually as a small image of the new, full, waning or waxing moon. The complication is rather uninteresting for most people in its purely practical use, but it undoubtedly has plenty of charm and can give a watch for men that certain something.

    Perpetual calendar

    The perpetual calendar, which is one of the "great complications" of watches, not only shows the day, but also the month and year, and even takes leap years into account. If the perpetual calendar watch runs continuously, it will always show the exact date without ever having to be reset.

    Second time zone

    Frequent travellers and globetrotters benefit from a men's watch that can display more than one time zone. Such timepieces are known as world time or GMT watches and often have an additional day/night display. This means there is no confusion about day and night time despite the twelve-hour dial.

    Stopwatch function and flyback

    One of the more elaborate complications in men's watches is certainly the "stopwatch function". We are talking about men's chronographs that have additional buttons and totalisers to stop the time precisely. This is particularly convenient with flyback chronographs: instead of having to press the start, zero and stop buttons once each, all you have to do is press the flyback button once and the hand "flies" backwards across the dial. The chronograph is enhanced by the double chronograph, which works with a split-seconds hand and enables two simultaneous measurements.


    Invented over two centuries ago, the tourbillon is designed to increase the precision of watch movements or to maintain it even when the watches are exposed to certain stresses over the years of use. To achieve this, the oscillation and escapement system is placed in a kind of cage where it rotates around its own axis every minute. Although the complex technology behind this is anything but new, it is no less impressive today than it was two hundred years ago.


    Repetition watches for men are extremely rare and therefore all the more fascinating. These special timepieces announce the time acoustically. They have a chiming mechanism that converts the hours, quarter hours and minutes into different tones and ensures that you can literally hear the time. Although this no longer fulfils a practical purpose today, the repeater is still a complication that amazes watch fans across the board.

    The movement: a comparison of automatic and quartz

    The decisive factor in a watch is, of course, what drives it. This raises the question: a men's watch with a mechanical movement or a quartz watch - which is better? The unsatisfactory answer is: It all depends on your personal idea of the perfect men's watch. In any case, it makes sense to take a closer look at the two options.

    The automatic men's watch of the past had a manual winding mechanism that was used to wind the spring manually. Nowadays, the majority of newly manufactured mechanical wristwatches are automatic watches. This means that they use the movements that occur when the watches are worn to wind themselves. The quartz watch, on the other hand, works with a battery that powers it in conjunction with a quartz crystal - a completely different functional principle. In a nutshell, you could say that quartz watches require less maintenance and are often slightly more precise, while men's watches with mechanical movements are the more traditional, technically sophisticated and often more durable choice.

    The design: watch types and their "outer values"

    It may be all about the inner values, but the outer values should not be completely neglected either - at least not when it comes to men's watches! In this respect, choosing the right men's watch is first and foremost a question of type: if you value sportiness and a look that leaves no doubt about the high functionality of the watch, diving watches, for example, are a good choice. These waterproof sports watches usually have luminescent numerals and focus on robustness and functionality. Many chronographs are no less sporty, as they include wristwatches that have been developed to meet the needs of racing drivers, for example.

    Do you prefer a watch type that radiates elegance, style and success? Then it might be worth considering some dress watches. These watches are designed to emphasise the formal look of the sophisticated gentleman and go particularly well with suits and dinner jackets. In terms of functions, they are often limited to the essentials and emphasise a thoroughly classic and elegant look.

    Men who want a solid case, a no-frills dial and a clear, straightforward design in a watch will find aviator and pilot's watches appealing. This type of men's watch is easy to read at a glance, typically has a fairly large diameter and can score points with regard to the technology "on board", for example with a second time zone, a chronograph function or a date display.

    The material: high quality you can touch

    Of course, men's watches are available in a variety of materials and many models from major brands present prospective buyers with a choice: a luxurious gold timepiece, a solid silver wristwatch or perhaps a stainless steel model? The difference sometimes lies in the price, but you can't always rely on that. Especially when buying on the secondary market, the coveted stainless steel men's watch can sometimes cost more than a less sought-after wristwatch made of a more expensive metal.

    While rose gold products are the absolute exception when it comes to men's watches, there are more and more watches for men that play with the combination of different metals. The result is bicolour items, for example made of gold and stainless steel. There are also men's watches made of platinum, which are hard to beat in terms of high quality, and watches set with diamonds or other precious stones. If you are looking for a men's watch whose price can be seen from afar and are not tied to a limited budget, such magnificent analogue watches are the obvious choice.

    Focus on details: bracelets as an expression of good style

    When men talk about their watches, they naturally talk a lot about their favourite brands, the complications and the movement. What is often forgotten and somewhat neglected is the bracelet. At first glance, this may not be quite as exciting as an elaborate function, but it is of great importance for the visual effect of a watch and for the wearing comfort of its owner. After all, no matter how reliable, functional and complex a watch may be, if the bracelet does not look or feel right, it is a disruptive factor.

    First and foremost, the strap of a men's watch must offer the wearer comfort. It should fit snugly around the wrist, be the right length and cause as little disturbance as possible during everyday activities. The material is also a relevant issue. Wristwatches where the case and bracelet are made from the same material, for example stainless steel, silver or gold, are very common. However, some men's wristwatches are more effective when combined with a leather watch strap, a textile strap or even a silicone strap. Leather, for example, is ideal for classically elegant watches, while silicone and textile straps emphasise the robustness of the men's watch and can express the practical attitude of the wearer.

    4 tips for buying - the path to the perfect men's watch

    These tips will ensure that your search for a men's wristwatch is a complete success:

    #1: Define your ideas

    Knowing as precisely as possible what your personal dream watch looks like and what criteria it should fulfil is half the battle. Because given the large selection on the market, it is hardly possible to even begin to look at all the watches available for men. Without a rough idea of what kind of men's watch you are looking for, endless browsing without a satisfactory result is inevitable. It therefore makes sense to think about a few things first:

    Which category (pilot's chronograph, dress watch, diver's watch, etc.) should the men's watch fall into?

    What occasions is the men's watch intended for?

    Is your personal preference for a quartz or automatic movement?

    Which functions would you not want to do without in the watch?

    Which additional functions would be "nice to have" but not a must?

    Should the men's watch be waterproof, particularly shock-resistant or even exceptionally resistant to magnetic fields?

    Which brands of men's watches are suitable?

    What are your purely visual preferences (e.g. colour of the dial, shape of the case, etc.)?

    Are there any wishes regarding the materials of the bracelets?

    What are the budget limits for the men's watch?

    #2: Compare watch models

    Once you have gained an overview of men's watches that meet the previously defined requirements, you need to make an initial selection and decide on a few favourite watches. You can then compare these more closely and see where the biggest differences lie. In this way, one watch after another is eliminated from the shortlist until finally only one men's watch remains - the best of the best, so to speak!

    #3: Buy from reputable watch retailers

    It's better not to buy luxury watches "just anywhere". It is strongly recommended that you contact a reputable supplier. After all, we are talking about quite expensive pieces of jewellery.

    #4: Pay attention to authenticity

    The third tip leads directly to the fourth: it is essential to make sure that the watch on offer is an original. As counterfeits are not always immediately recognisable as such by everyone, it is advisable to seek the support of an expert if necessary or to ensure that the chosen supplier takes care of the adequate testing and professional authentication of their men's watches.
