Black watches for men – These things matter

Black watches for men –
These things matter

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 wristwatch also becomes a faithful and not short companion.

What kind of coating does the housing have?

If you buy a black watch with an inadequate coating on the case, it is possible that it will flake off quite quickly after purchase. Cheap models are usually more susceptible to scratches, so you’ll end up with silver streaks on your metal case. Unattractive, 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 Vapour Deposition) or DLC (diamond like carbon) coating.

What kind of coating does the housing have?

What movement does the watch have?

If you bet on unknown movements, you are usually abandoned, because they are often of inferior quality and require frequent, manual readjustment. another point is often the quality, many of the noname movements make the bend shortly after the end of the warranty, which is doubly annoying. You are on the safe side if you buy watches with well-known, reputable movements. Brands like Ronda, Miyota or Seiko are recommended here and give you the quality you need.

How much water protection do you need?

The higher the ATM value of a watch, the more resistant your new piece of jewellery 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 handle splash water and this should be standard for all watches from 20 Euro.

5 ATM
the shower show in the early morning or late at night can’t harm you anymore because your 5 ATM dense watch wipes the floor effortlessly with upcoming shower jets. From 200 euros 5 ATM should be standard.

10 ATM
If a watch has 10 ATM you are pretty close to the jackpot. Without big fear of loss you can take your companion also times into the swimming pool and notice extended pool expeditions. Mostly, however, this waterproofness is only available in higher price ranges.

20 ATM
at 20 ATM, goose wine becomes cherry brandy and almost nothing can stop your watch. For all leisure Jacques Cousteau’s among us of course optimal.

What kind of watch glass is installed?

At MNMA, we are fans of sapphire crystal because it has all the qualities you need for a long-lasting watch.
It is significantly more powerful than any other glass used, even gorilla glass compares poorly. The main advantage is that it is almost impervious to scratches and can only be scratched with diamond and therefore has a long life span. You can learn more about sapphire crystal in our article about sapphire crystal. The big competitor in the price range up to 800 euros is mineral glass (sometimes called Hardlex glass) and various hybrid forms of the same, which are covered with thin layers of sapphire glass. Don’t be fooled, even these hybrid forms never offer the same resistance as sapphire crystal and can only be recommended for very cheap watch models in the range up to about 100 Euro. Among them there are other glasses like acrylic glass or plexiglass, but we consider them to be outdated.

Which leather strap is suitable for me?

The quality of the bracelet is also very important. In our article“Watches with Interchangeable Straps“, we have discussed in detail about different types of straps like leather, metal, mesh, rubber etc.

The optimal watch height?

From experience, we can tell you that flatter models cause fewer problems, as they are much less likely to get stuck when you put them on, compared to their taller counterparts with, say, 12-13 mm height. We therefore prefer flat black housings.

Alienwork IK Wrist Watch for Men Ladies Slim Watch Ø40mm with Milanaise Bracelet

“Alienwork” with their
SLIM 40mm watch*
in completely black, is a brand existing since the year 2010, which would like to score with favorable prices around the Gusto of the broad masses.

The discreet design of the watch is immediately appealing, the lines and the details of the watch fit well together and probably make the model so popular. The design is therefore the big plus point of the watch and seems quite appropriate for today’s time. The watch comes with 7mm height, so it is kept very slim and fits well on the wrist.

According to the manufacturer, the movement comes from Japan, but which movement is actually used could not be clarified.
The manufacturer advertises the watch with, for most wrists suitable, 40mm diameter as suitable for ladies and gentlemen. For all those who want it a little smaller, the model is also available with 36mm diameter*.

The glass is mineral glass and the water resistance is 3 ATM. A modern mesh strap is used as the wristband.

If you browse the (mostly positive) 443 Amazon reviews, which are on average 4.2 stars, the quality (bracelet, battery, water resistance) and the only partly possible time reading, is criticized. (As of:03/29/2020)

 

Conclusion:
The Black Edition watch from
Alienwork*
offers a contemporary design at a price of about 25 euros (as of 29.03.2020), but the components, such as the glass or the movement, you have to be prepared to cut back.

What we like:

– chic design at a very reasonable price
– 40 and 36 mm diameter
– after all 3 ATM waterproof
– 7mm height

Where do we still see potential:

– Reviews on Amazon regarding general quality
– difficult to read the dial
– Noname movement

Casio wave ceptor men’s wristwatch

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

The watch scores with its clear lines and comes 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 shatterproof and scratch resistant. With a diameter of 40 mm, the watch is only 9 mm high, despite its digital qualities. Good news is also the unspecified solar-powered quartz movement, which avoids the need to change the battery in a timely manner.

The Amazon reviews of the model are at a strong 4.5 out of 5 stars with over 900 reviews. Among other things, the accuracy of the movement and the design is praised.(As of:29.03.2020)

TAKE A SHOT – WA8B3A1A4 “James”

TAKE A SHOT is a young brand, which was founded in 2012. Sunglasses and watches with special materials such as wood or stone are sold. In addition to the normal sales via online shop, the team members are also on the road at markets and festivals throughout Germany, where they advise customers in detail about the respective product. The model ,,James* ” consists of a black, changeable leather strap, a walnut wood case body with a black stainless steel back and a black dial.

The wood makes the watch interesting, yet, since it was only used as a frame, it doesn’t seem too obtrusive.

The case diameter of 42 millimeters is very snug for most men’s wrists. The case height is 8.4 millimeters and thus rather flat.

The built-in mineral glass is a rather average component, but is nevertheless hardened and scratch-resistant according to the manufacturer. The Japanese movement is a Japanese quartz movement from SEIKO. What is special about the watch here is the outsourced second hand.

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

Amazon customer reviews give the watch a very good report card, awarding it 4.5 out of 5 stars with a total of nearly 400 reviews, praising the precision and design in particular.(As of Jan 26, 2019)

 

Conclusion:
For a purchase price of about 139€ incl. VAT (as of 26.01.2020) you get with the
James*
an entry-level model with walnut wood, which is an eye-catcher in any case.

With a watch height of 9mm it is also no problem to hide the watch quickly. The movement is unfortunately not specified. The water resistance of the watch is common 3 ATM.

LILIENTHAL BERLIN L1 ALLBLACK

Actually, slightly above the limit of 200 eurosmentioned in the article but if you’re lucky, you can catch the Lilienthal Berlin L1 ALLBLACK* now and then for 199 euros in the sale instead of the ancestral 229 euros.

The minimalist look of the watch is, of course, very much to the fore in terms of design.

The watch looks chic and if you like lots of numbers inside the dial, this is definitely the watch for you.

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

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

On the other hand, Lilienthal does not compromise on the movement and uses a high-quality Swiss movement from Ronda.

According to reviews, the vegatibil tanned watch band largely lives up to expectations and matches the rest of this fashionable men’s watch in quality.

On Amazon, the watch gets an average of 3.8 out of 5 stars with 85 reviews. The design of the watch is praised, however, some have problems with the bracelet closure or with a decreasing battery after some time of use. (as of Jun 10, 2019)

from Emporio Armani. However, you should set aside a bit more money for the purchase with approx. 529 Euros.

What we like:

☑ design
☑ 5 bar water resistance
☑ Chronograph movement
☑ Ceramic housing

Where do we still see potential:

– Mineral glass as watch glass
– Unknown quartz movement

Rank 4:
Fossil nate men wrist watch

The quartz wristwatch comes in completely black “ionized” Nate * from Fossil in the trendy military style. 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 that 10 ATM water resistance which enable 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 a unspecified Japanese quartz movement velvet 24 mm leather strap and hardened mineral glass . The Case size is with 50 mm quite wide, 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.

The watch achieved an average of over 200 reviews on Amazon 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 criticized the quality of the built-in buttons, for example the stopwatch button stopped working for some customers after a while.

 

Conclusion: The
Nate*
from Fossil convinces by the design and at the same time high water resistance.(10 bar) The price point of the clock is moderate and lies in the offer partly with under 100 euros.

What we like:

– Design

Where do we still see potential:

– Width is 50mm maybe too big for some
– Unknown Japanese movement

Tommy Hilfiger Men’s Wristwatch 1710383

This
Chronograph*
from Tommy Hilfiger presents itself in a very modern business design. The robust metal bracelet in combination with the black lacquered stainless steel case provides a stylish, unobtrusive elegance.

The black background of the dial, on which the black – silver bordered 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 push clasp. With a height of 9.6 mm, the watch is one of the watches with the greatest height in the comparison field. Here it can be difficult in a business meeting to stow his watch quickly under the shirt. 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, especially the design is praised extensively. (as of 11 2019)

 

Conclusion:
We think a voluminous, chic watch suitable for large wrists.

PLACE 2:
BERING men’s wristwatch analog solar stainless steel 14440-222

For those who have always been annoyed by battery replacement, the Danish manufacturer “Bering” is the right choice. Berings
14440-222*
scores with good components, solar energy and cool look in black design.

The black brushed stainless steel sapphire crystal case with graphite dial and bright index looks visually wonderful and has a certain exclusivity. The highlight of this watch, however, is the integrated solar function, so that no battery change is required. Otherwise, the quartz movement of the watch is unknown and the water resistance is a good 5 bar.

The reviews on Amazon are in the good to very good range and give the average 4.3 stars out of 5.

MNMA WATCHES SERIES 1 MILA SUPERSTAR

Black is beautiful – this slogan rightly applies to the “
MILA SUPERSTAR
” christened version of our own startup called
MNMA
.
In the conceptual design, we placed emphasis on minimalist appearance and long durability.

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

The watch also features a high quality milanaise (mesh) band which is available in either black or silver.

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

A Swiss quality movement from Ronda helps the Mila Superstar to a stress-free, consistent time display without the need for frequent readjustments. It is not uncommon for other brand watches to use the same movement in models up to 800 euros.

Another small highlight are the hands that glow in the dark for a certain time.

 

Conclusion:
Models from MNMA are already available from 139 (leather ) or 149 Euro in the
Online Shop
. At this price point, you’re getting a watch from the Series 1 collection with custom design, strong components, and potentially long service life.

What we like:

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

Where do we still see potential:

– Brand still relatively unknown

Conclusion & Recommendation – My TOP3 black stainless steel men’s watches

 

There are some really nifty ones in our illustrious comparison neighborhood. Some models have an attractive overall package at a comfortable price point.

As I was disappointed by a watch purchase myself at that time and thereupon decided to start MNMA, as I wanted a durable watch without a weak point, I would of course recommend the MNMA MILA SUPERSTAR presented here in the article.

Beyond that, my choice would be as follows:

 

1. the capital individualist: Lilienthal Berlin – L1 Allblack
*

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

2.Black Sunstar:

BERING – SOLAR 14440-222*

Great design,good features(solar!) with long warranty period of 3 years. Unfortunately, we could not find out anything about the movement. However, the brand otherwise relies on good components at a solid price point, so we don’t think you’ll go wrong with this watch.

3. the styler: TOMMY HILFER – TH1710383*

Yes, I know the watch doesn’t have any over the top features, however, I like the looks and the reviews speak for themselves.
