Black Men’s Watch (stainless steel) the best models in the TOP 15 brands comparison

The black men’s watch has always been the accessory on the wrist of every man with a sense of style.

In recent years in particular, there has been an increasing trend towards more and more men preferring black watches over classic models.
This article examines the most popular brand models of black men’s watches (e.g. from Tissot, Fossil, Citizen or Festina) in more detail and gives you recommendations which watches are worth their money.
We wish you a lot of fun reading the article and of course a sustainable watch purchase with a model that you can enjoy for a long time.

If you are looking for a high-quality black men’s watch, you will get exactly what you need in this guide article.

As watch enthusiasts, we are constantly looking about everything the watch market has to offer and explain to you which watches we like and in which models we still see potential. We’ll give you the summary you need to avoid getting left behind when buying a watch.

Black watches for men – these are the things that count

Black watches for men –
These are the things that count

We all regret bad purchases. It is all the more important to get a brief overview of what to look out for before buying the watch, so that the watch becomes a loyal and not short companion.

What kind of coating does the housing have?

If you treat yourself to a black watch with an inadequate coating on the case, it may peel off quite quickly after purchase. Cheap models are usually more susceptible to any scratches, so that you then have silver stripes on your metal housing. Unpleasant, but unfortunately quite often the case with cheap models under 70 euros. You are usually on the safe side with a watch with PDV (Physical Vapor Deposition) or DLC (diamond like carbon) coating.

What kind of coating does the housing have?

What movement does the watch have?

If you rely on unknown movements you are usually because they are often of inferior quality and require frequent, manual readjustment. Another point is often the quality, many of the Noname movements bend shortly after the warranty expires, which is doubly annoying. You are on the safe side when you buy watches with well-known, well-known movements. Brands like Ronda, Miyota or Seiko are recommended here and give you the quality you need.

How much water protection should it be?

The higher the ATM value of a watch, the more resistant your new piece of jewelry is to the cool water.

1ATM
stands for 1 bar water pressure and is really not worth mentioning.

3 ATM
from 3 ATM your watch can also handle splash water and this should also be standard for all models from 20 euros.

5 ATM
the shower show in the early morning or late at night can no longer harm you as your 5 ATM-tight watch effortlessly wipes the floor with the shower jets. From 200 euros, 5 ATM should be standard.

10 ATM
If a watch has 10 ATM you are pretty close to the main prize. Without fear of losing too much, you can take your companion with you to the swimming pool and enjoy extensive pool expeditions. Most of the time, this water resistance is only available in higher price ranges.

20 ATM
At 20 ATM, goose wine turns into cherrywater and your watch can hardly stop anything. Ideal for all of Jacques Cousteau’s leisure time among us, of course.

What kind of watch glass is installed?

At MNMA we are fans of sapphire crystal because it has all the properties you need for a long-lasting watch.
It is significantly more powerful than all the other glasses used, even gorilla glass is worse off in comparison. The main advantage is that it is almost insensitive to scratches and can only be scratched with diamond and therefore has a long lifespan. You can find out more about sapphire crystal in our article on sapphire crystal. The big competitor in the price range up to 800 euros is mineral glass (sometimes also called hardlex glass) and various hybrid forms of the same, which are coated with thin layers of sapphire glass. Don’t be fooled, these hybrid shapes never offer the same resistance as sapphire glass and can only be recommended for very cheap watch models in the range up to around 100 euros. Among them there are other glasses such as acrylic glass or plexiglass, which we consider to be out of date.

Which leather strap is right for me?

The quality of the bracelet is also very important. In our article “Watches with Interchangeable Straps” we covered in detail different types of straps such as leather, metal, mesh, rubber, etc.

The optimal watch height?

From experience we can tell you that flatter models cause fewer problems because, in contrast to their higher counterparts with a height of say 12-13 mm, they are much less likely to get stuck when “slipped over”. We therefore prefer flat black cases.

There are some criteria that you should pay attention to. Ultimately, there are currently a surprisingly few models that offer you an “all-round carefree package”. We have therefore looked at some particularly popular watch models from well-known brands and tell you where the watches have their strengths or where there is still potential.

PLACE 15: Alienwork IK wrist watch for men and women slim watch Ø40mm with mesh strap

“Alienwork” with its SLIM 40mm watch * in completely black is a brand that has existed since 2010 and aims to appeal to the general public with low prices.

The subtle design of the watch speaks to you immediately, the lines and details of the watch go well together and that’s probably why this model is so popular. The design is therefore the big advantage of the watchand looks quite suitable for today. The watch comes with a height of 7mm, is therefore very slim and fits well on the wrist.

According to the manufacturer, the built-in movement comes from Japan, but unfortunately it was not possible to clarify which movement is actually used.
The manufacturer advertises the watch with a diameter of 40mm, which fits most wrists, as suitable for women and men. For those who want something a little smaller, the model is also available with a 36mm diameter *.

The built-in glass is mineral glass and the water resistance is 3 ATM. A modern mesh band is used as a bracelet.

If you rummage through the (mostly positive) 443 Amazon reviews, which have an average of 4.2 stars, the quality (bracelet, battery, water resistance) and the only limited reading of the time will be criticized. (Status: March 29, 2020)

 

Conclusion:
The Black Edition watch from Alienwork * offers to Combat price of around 25 euros (as of March 29, 2020) a contemporary design , both built-in components, such as the glass or the clockwork you have to get on though Trade-offs to adjust.

What we like:

– chic design at a very affordable price
– 40 and 36 mm diameter
– at least 3 ATM water resistance
– 7mm height

Where do we still see potential:

– Reviews on Amazon regarding general quality
– difficult readability of the dial

PLACE 14: Casio wave ceptor men’s wristwatch

The watch pioneer Casio * is of course also represented in our comparison and is way ahead with the legendary Wave Ceptor *, which comes in completely black and with an integrated solar function.

The watch scores with clear lines and comes along without much extravagance. What we like is the combination of analog hands and digital date display. The model is completely ionized (stainless steel case and metal bracelet.)

The watch glass is made of very good sapphire glass and keeps the model unbreakable and scratch-resistant. With a diameter of 40 mm, the watch only has a height of 9 mm, despite its digital qualities. Good news is also the unspecified solar-powered quartz movement, which makes it possible to avoid replacing batteries in a timely manner.

The Amazon recessions of the model are a strong 4.5 out of 5 stars with over 900 submitted reviews. Is praised i.a. the accuracy of the movement and the design (as of March 29, 2020)

 

Conclusion:

PLACE 13: TAKE A SHOT – WA8B3A1A4 “James”

TAKE A SHOT is a young brand that was founded in 2012. Sunglasses and watches made from special materials such as wood or stone are sold. In addition to normal sales via the online shop, the team members are also on the go to markets and festivals throughout Germany, giving customers extensive advice on the respective product. The model “James *‘ ‘consists of a black, exchangeable leather strap, a case made of walnut wood with the back made of black stainless steel and a black dial.

The wood makes the clock interesting, but because it was only used as a frame, it doesn’t look too intrusive.

The case diameterof 42 millimetersis very supple for most men’s wrists. The case height is 8.4 millimeters and thus kept rather flat.

The built-in mineral glass is a rather average component, yet it is hardened and scratch-resistant according to the manufacturer. The movement is a Japanese quartz movement from SEIKO. The outsourced second handis particularly important on the clock.

The water resistance is given as 0 ATM, which means it is very sensitive to water, water contact should not take place

The reviews from Amazon customers attest the watch a very good rating and give it 4.5 out of 5 stars with a total of almost 400 reviews, with the precision and design being praised in particular. (Status: 26.01.2019)

 

Conclusion:
For a purchase price of around € 139 including VAT (as of 01/26/2020), the James * is an entry-level model with walnut wood, which is definitely an eye-catcher.

What we like:

☑ the elegant simplicity in combination with the wood component
☑ Approachability of the team
☑ Japanese movement from SEIKO

Where do we still see potential:

– Water resistance 0 ATM (!)
– Mineral glass
– Brand still relatively unknown

With a watch height of 9mm, it is also no problem to hide the watch quickly. The clockwork is unfortunately not specified in detail. The water resistance of the watch is a common 3 ATM. Otherwise, the watch comes with a very trendy black mesh strap in good quality.

PLACE 10: LILIENTHAL BERLIN L1 ALLBLACK

Actually slightly over the one mentioned in the article Limit of 200 euros but if you’re lucky, you’ll catch it Lilienthal Berlin L1 ALLBLACK * now and then for 199 euros in the sale instead of the traditional 229 euros.

The minimalist look of the watch is of course very important in terms of design.

The watch looks chic and anyone who likes a lot of numbers within the dial is guaranteed to be right here.

Lilienthal also manages, depending on taste, to offer the watch in two different sizes, 37.5 mm and 42.5 mm, so that there is something for every wrist. As a further “nice to have” feature, similar to the MNMA, hands are installed which can glow in the dark.

The watch glass consists of pressed mineral glass, which is coated with a thin layer of sapphire glass, similar to the Meller Astar Collection, and can therefore be of a slightly better quality than normal mineral glass.

When it comes to the movement, however, Lilienthal does not accept any compromises and uses a high-quality Swiss movement from Ronda.

According to reviews, the vegetable-tanned watch strap largely meets expectations and matches the quality of the rest of this fashionable men’s watch.

At Amazon, the watch gets an average of 3.8 out of 5 stars with 85 ratings. The design of the watch has been praised but has some problems with the bracelet clasp or with a draining battery after long periods of use. (Status: 10.06.2019)

The quartz wristwatch Nate * from Fossil comes in the trendy military style in completely black “ionized”. The stylish look of the chronograph comes mainly from the black dial with gray highlights.

The features that are not immediately visible at first glance can also largely convince with the Nate. The highlight is certainly the 10 ATM water resistance, which enables the watch to remain on the wrist even during a dive of confidence. (Provided no salt water etc.)

Otherwise, the watch comes with a rotating bezel and an unspecified Japanese quartz movement including a 24 mm leather strap and hardened mineral glass. The case size is quite wide at 50 mm, here you should measure beforehand whether the watch does not look too big on the wrist. You can find tips for the optimal wrist watch size below in the article.

With over 200 reviews on Amazon, the watch achieved an average of 4.3 out of 5 stars (as of 09.2019), which – we think – is a pretty good value. In addition to the often praised design, customers mainly criticize the quality of the built-in buttons. the stopwatch button for some customers no longer works after a while.

 

Conclusion: The Nate * by Fossil convinced by the design with high waterproofness at the same time . (10 bar) The price point of the watch is moderate and lies on offer sometimes for less than 100 euros .

What we like:

– Design
– price
– 10 bar water resistance

Where do we still see potential:

– Mineral glass
– Width is 50mm maybe too big for some
– Unknown Japanese movement
– 13 mm case height

PLACE 3: Tommy Hilfiger Herren Wrist watch1710383

This Tommy Hilfiger chronograph * has a very modern business design. The robust metal band in combination with the black lacquered stainless steel case ensures a stylish, inconspicuous elegance.

The black background of the dial, on which the black and silver framed indices are shown, round off the successful appearance of this men’s watch. The watch has a large diameter of 46 mm and the bracelet has a snap fastener. With a height of 9.6 mm, the watch is one of the watches with the greatest height in the comparison field. It can be difficult to quickly stow your watch under your shirt at a business meeting. However, 9.6 mm is still a long way from the really high calibers.
A look at the specified components reveals that the watch has a good water resistance of 5 bar. Otherwise, an unspecified chronograph quartz movement is used. Normal mineral glass is used as the watch glass. The price is currently 199 euros.

The watch currently has 4.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon, and the design in particular has received extensive praise. (As of 11.2019)

PLACE 1: MNMA WATCHES SERIES 1 MILA SUPERSTAR

Black is beautiful – this slogan rightly applies to the ” MILA SUPERSTAR “Named version of our own startup MNMA .
When designing the concept, we attached great importance to a minimalistic look and durability.

As a color combination, we have chosen a matt case with a dark face and blue and white details to create a harmonious overall picture.

The watch also has a high-quality Milanese (mesh) strap which is either in black or silver is available.

With the chosen diameter of 42mm it fits perfectly on most of the common men’s wrist sizes. Another highlight is the use of Sapphire crystal, which is rarely found in the price range for black men’s watches up to 200 euros and gives the watch a valuable presence due to the higher weight compared to mineral glass.

A Swiss quality movement from Ronda, the Mila Superstar provides a stress-free, constant time display without having to readjust it often. It is not uncommon for other brand watches to use the same movement in models up to 800 euros.

Another small highlight are those pointer shines for a certain time in the dark

 

Conclusion:
Models of MNMA is there from 139 ( leather ) to round about 152 euros (depends on your country) in the Online shop . At this price point you get a watch from the Series 1 collection individual design , strong components and potentially long service life.

What we like:

☑ Sapphire crystal
☑ Swiss movement from Ronda
☑ 7.6 mm height
☑ minimalist design
☑ fluorescent hands

Where do we still see potential:

– Brand still relatively unknown

Conclusion & recommendation – My TOP3 black men’s watches

 

In our illustrious comparison environment, there are a few really chic copies. Some models have an attractive overall package with a pleasant price point.

Since I was disappointed by buying a watch myself and then decided to found MNMA, because I wanted a long-lasting watch without a weak point, I would of course also use the one presented here in the article MNMA MILA SUPERSTAR recommend.

In addition, my choice would be as follows:

 

1. The capital city individualist: Lilienthal Berlin – L1 Allblack *

Interesting watch from the up-and-coming company from Berlin without great compromises (e.g. Swiss clockwork) and chic design. Recommendation.

2.Black Sunstar: BERING – SOLAR 14440-222 *

Great design, good features (solar!) With a long warranty period of 3 years. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find out anything about the built-in movement. However, the brand otherwise relies on good components at a solid price point, so we assume that you won’t go wrong with this watch.

3. The styler: TOMMY HILFER – TH1710383 *

Yes, I know the watch doesn’t have any great features, but I like the look and the reviews speak for themselves.
