Clean-cut Minimalist Watches

Clean-cut Minimalist Watches

Keeping track of time, as far as watches go, should be effortless and straight to the point. Sometimes, we simply want our timepieces to serve their rudimentary purpose; no strings attached, just good ol’ time telling. If you are not a fan of exceedingly embellished tickers, then strap on one of these sleek, utilitarian bad boys. Remember, simple is sexy too.


Drawing inspiration from the world of aquatic sports, the Longines HydroConquest merges the traditional style of diving watches with the elegance of Swiss watchmaking. Highly practical, the sporty wristwatch is scratch-resistant, water-resistant to 300m, and features a unidirectional rotating bezel, making it a sturdy companion for the man who isn’t afraid to get his feet wet.


Montblanc never ceases to amaze when it comes to crafting classy timepieces that carry a storied heritage. The Star Legacy Automatic Date pays homage to the brand’s pocket watches of the last century, with a refined dial featuring the Montblanc exploding star guilloché motif, blue leaf-shaped hands, a new Roman numerals. Powered by the automatic calibre MB 24.01 with a date aperture at six o’clock, the elegant watch comes in 39mm and 42mm versions – we prefer the former as it is less impeding on the wrist as one goes about his daily routines.


The Mido Multifort Chronometer is the watch to get if one seeks to combine style and cutting-edge technology on their wrist. The watch’s black dial stands out with wide Geneva stripes, while beige Superluminova-coated hands make time telling a breeze. The Caliber 80 Si within features a silicon balance spring and provides outstanding accuracy with shock-resistance, as well as exceptional autonomy of up to 80 hours – especially useful if you passed out drunk after a wild night out at the clubs.
