Elegant men’s watches suitable for the office and business – you should attach importance to this when buying a new one

 

In the following section you can see which components are really important for an elegant wristwatch in the price range up to around 500 euros. Because only if the overall package is right can you avoid expensive bad purchases and enjoy your watch all the longer.

The movement

In general, it is not advisable to buy watches with NoName movements, as these are usually less durable. We recommend business watches that have Swiss movements like Ronda , or Japanese clockworks like Miyota are built in to significantly extend the life of your watch. The watches with such branded movements generally do their job faithfully and very rarely need to be readjusted.
If you want an automatic watch, we recommend movements from brands such as ETA, as the 2824-2, which enables a relatively compact design of the watch or works by the traditional brand Seiko .

The watch glass

There can really only be one choice here Sapphire crystal! It is simply the best glass you can get in a watch and it has the best functionalities. The watch cannot get any scratches with this glass (with the exception of diamond) and is more shatterproof than the other glasses available.
Some distance behind in second place is a glass mixture, which consists of hardened mineral glass with a sapphire coating.
In third place is hardened mineral glass, which some manufacturers (such as Seiko) also refer to as hardlex glass. in a broad sense and formulated in a simplified way, mineral glass can also be seen as harder window glass.
However, the scratch resistance and breaking strength of mineral glass can be improved by special treatment with oxides and various chemical processes, so that it is subsequently referred to as “hardened mineral glass”.
The last places in the ranking are occupied by acrylic and plexiglass, which are inexpensive to produce, but in terms of scratch resistance etc. they cannot compete with the properties of the more expensive lenses and therefore they only see the back lights of the other glasses in comparison.

The quality of the (exchange) bracelet

With leather straps you have to pay attention mainly to the seams of the strap, in the frequently stressed areas there should be a double seam to ensure long durability and to avoid rapid wear.
On the other hand, with metal it is important that the metal is appropriately well painted and provided with a high quality alloy. Nobody wants to see silver metal stains on their black metal bracelet shortly after purchase. Also practical are interchangeable straps, which can be changed in seconds with a simple sliding mechanism.

Read more

The watch’s water protection

Basically you can remember the following, the higher the ATM specification, the less sensitive the watch is to water:
1 ATM stands for 1 bar water pressure and is not recommended, but it is better than nothing.
3 ATM / Bar is the minimum value the watch should have, which means that it is at least protected from water splashes.
5 ATM / Bars are good and should be the norm in the range of up to 200 euros, but this is far from always the case. (Unfortunately) With 5 bar it is possible, e.g. take a shower without removing the watch. (no guarantee)
10 ATM The higher price ranges are usually the responsibility of the higher watches. With 10 bar it is easily possible to go snorkeling or swimming with the watch.
20 ATM is rare, but the tightness is really very good. The watch then has a water resistance of 20 bar and is therefore also suitable for long-term diving.

Read more

The maximum watch height

It depends on the taste of the individual, but in our opinion it is very important, especially in business. The flatter the watch is, the better it feels on the wrist. In addition, a flat watch simply goes better with an elegant outfit in the form of a suit or shirt because it is also easier to hide. As a basic principle it can be remembered that the flatter the watch, the more comfortable it lies on the wrist.
In our experience, 5 to a maximum of 9 mm have proven to be very suitable for the wrist. Everything over it can become already unpleasant and is only conditionally suitable for the Businessoutfit.
