The most beautiful watches for men – modern wristwatches in comparison

In 2015 I was looking for wristwatches. I wanted a beautiful, modern and minimalist watch that was as durable and sturdy as possible. Unfortunately I was disappointed. Most manufacturers often saved on lifespan.
Result: The watch glass was scratched or broken after months, batteries only lasted one to two years or the workmanship was completely underground. Some friends around me didn’t fare much differently either – so we decided MNMA to found. This guide shows you what we believe to be the most beautiful modern watches for men.

Have fun while reading.

In this guide article we tell you what the most beautiful modern men’s watches of the year are for us and check them for quality / experience & price in order to be able to tell you with a clear conscience whether you can strike with your purchase without hesitation.

The most beautiful modern wristwatches for men – this should be important to you when buying a new one

In the following section you can see which components are really important in a watch in the price range up to 200 euros. Because only if the overall package is right can you avoid expensive bad purchases and enjoy your watch all the longer.

The movement

We do not recommend using NoName movements as these IDRs are less durable. We recommend Swiss works like Ronda , Miyota or brands Seiko to significantly extend the life of your watch. The work of these clocks is so precise that they only need to be reset every few months.

The watch glass

Here the choice is clear Sapphire crystal is simply the best glass available and has the best properties. The watch cannot get scratched with this glass and is more shatterproof than other glasses.
Some distance behind is a mixed version of hardened mineral crystal with a sapphire coating. Third is hardened mineral glass, which some manufacturers (such as Seiko) also refer to as hardlex glass. Mineral glass can also be viewed as a harder window glass. The scratch sensitivity and break resistance of mineral glass can be improved by special treatment with oxides and various chemical processes. However, even with these processes, mineral glass does not reach the level of sapphire glass.
Acrylic and Plexiglas are inexpensive to manufacture, but cannot keep up with the properties of the more expensive glasses in terms of scratch resistance etc. and follow a little behind at the back

The quality of the (exchange) bracelet

In the case of leather, it is mainly due to the seams of the belt; there should be a double seam at the critical stressed areas in order to ensure a long service life and avoid rapid wear and tear. On the other hand, when it comes to metal, it is important that the metal is well painted and has a correspondingly good alloy., Nobody wants to see silver metal stains on their black metal bracelet shortly after buying them. Also useful if the bracelet can be changed quickly. For more information on exchangeable straps and their mechanisms, see our article Watches with an interchangeable strap .

The watch’s water protection

The higher the ATM specification, the more robust the watch is against water:
1 ATM stands for 1 bar water pressure.
3 ATM / bar is the minimum a watch should have and means that it is at least protected from splashing water.
5 ATMs are good and should be the standard in the range up to 200 euros, unfortunately this is not always the case. With 5 ATM it is possible to take a shower without removing the watch.
When a watch has 10 ATM, it is easy to wear the watch while swimming or snorkeling. Watches with 10 ATM are usually reserved for more expensive price ranges.
20 ATM is the premier class, a water pressure of 20 bar can be withstood and the watch is also suitable for longer dives.

The maximum watch height

Depends on individual taste, but the flatter a watch, the more comfortable it is to wear on the wrist. If the flat watch is worn with a shirt, for example, it is also more convenient as it can be covered more easily. I personally find anything over 9-10 mm less comfortable to wear.

Which price range is the right one for me for the most beautiful modern men’s watches?

Outfit-watch-man-with-MNMA-men’s watch-biscuit-red TshirtDepending on income and living conditions, men have more or less additional money for accessories per month. If you are starting to teach or are fresh out of college, a watch in the price range up to 200 euros is a good choice. For men who, for example, often go to business meetings and are sufficiently established in their profession, the price range up to 500 euros or 1000 euros can also be interesting.
It is important that the preferred Outfit to Watch fits , a color combination should be chosen that is not too colorful and off maximum of four harmonizing colors consists.

Important is that that Outfit to Clock fits , the color combination should be chosen not too colorful are and off maximum of four harmonizing colors consist.

Furthermore, the watch size should play a role when buying, depending on the wrist size, for example, a watch diameter of 40-42mm is a good all-round size that usually fits perfectly. However, a case size of up to 45 mm is recommended for very wide wrists. The trend in men’s watches is generally towards 42mm, after 40mm was considered the yardstick for years. (see various Rolex classics)

On the picture on the right you can see a super coordinated outfit with no more than 4 combined colors. At the same time, it looks classy and minimalist at the same time.

Price range 0-50 euros

Don’t expect too much here. The quality offered is often sufficient to wear the watch for a few months without worries, but afterwards it is often more of a gamble. So if new watches are worn frequently, this area is the right one if you can live with a loss of the watch. (due to a component failure or severe scratches).

Price range up to 100 euros

The competition is fierce in the 50 to 100 euro price range, and in terms of quality it is very possible to find a watch that will stay stylish for a long time. In most cases, the manufacturers of such watches focus on features that make them look particularly high-quality (e.g. a certain water resistance). However, there are often other weak points that can reduce the life of the watch. In this case, it is best to keep an eye out for the higher-priced segment of watches with prices between 100 and 200 euros and speculate on price reductions there at the set price limit.

Price range up to 200 euros

More quality is offered in the price range up to 200 euros. But there are also manufacturers who shine with 1 – 2 high-quality components and only supplement the remaining innards of the clock with mediocre quality components. For example, many manufacturers install a good watch mechanism, but an easily scratched watch glass. After a few months you get angry and we are talking from personal experience that the watch is scratched or the glass is broken. Nevertheless, with enough research, it is possible to find very good quality in some watches in this price range.

Price range up to 500 euros

Watches up to 500 euros have a greater chance of offering the perfect package than, for example, watches up to 200 euros, but here are also some manufacturers who have their names outweighed by gold and components that are also used for watches up to 100 euros are partly in integrate their clocks. That doesn’t have to be bad in and of itself, but it’s also a matter of expectation.

In our opinion, a watch in the price range up to 500 euros should have a solid quality that enables a long service life.

Depending on income and living conditions, the men have more or less additional money for accessories per month. If you are starting to teach or are fresh out of college, a watch in the price range up to 200 euros is a good choice. For men who, for example, often go to business meetings and are sufficiently established in their profession, the price range up to 500 euros or 1000 euros can also be interesting.

Conclusion – who is the most beautiful (watch) in the whole country?

All watches in the test field are visually stunning for us. With most of the watches for men compared, there is not much to complain about, but the attentive reader will have noticed that almost all manufacturers always have a component that cannot quite hold a candle to the other components in terms of quality. Here it is really difficult to find the egg-laying “whole milk sow”.

If you don’t want to compromise, I can do ours MNMA Series 1 series recommend that our watches have been designed for a long service life at a moderate price and are especially suitable for people who value design and price / performance.

If I had to decide otherwise, I would currently have a nice, simple watch for men from the company Bering * to tend. The compared watch from would also be interesting Citizen * or the model of PAUL Hewitt * . Below you will find these 3 clocks with the most important information in a small table.
