Why Every Man Needs a Marvellous Watch


A deep dive into the world of horology is guaranteed to exhaust you because let’s face it, there are as many styles of watches as there are species of Pokémon. This also means a wrong purchase will have you looking like an #insurancebro or the peacock of any room. Here, a series of five marvellous-looking timepieces that serve as finishers to any fit because they’re going to be fire on your wrist. We’ve done the work, you do the purchase.


Gucci G-Timeless Contemporary Snake mesh watch

The Italian house’s latest timepiece distills the house’s famous Gucci-isms into a 38mm format — a Gucci Kingsnake that slithers from dial to bracelet and the iconic bee that replaces the “12” on the watch face. 

Hublot Big Bang Unico White Ceramic

If Hublot’s latest whopper of a watch doesn’t wow with its size (42mm), its skeleton dial will — a 60-minute chronograph at 3 o’clock, continuous seconds at 9 o’clock and a visible date wheel.

Montblanc Star Quantième Complet

The next time someone asks you for the time, offer to let them know what today’s moon phase is instead — Montblanc’s Star Quantième Complet displays the moon’s waxing and waning while the date is indicated by a red crescent that sweeps across the face.

Rado Hyperchrome Automatic Open Heart 

Not only is Rado’s Hyperchrome Automatic Open Heart near indestructible — thanks to its plasma ceramic make — its open face design allows a glimpse into the timepiece’s pulsating heart. 

TAG Heuer Monaco Calibre 11 

TAG Heuer’s first ever Monaco watch was worn by Steve McQueen in the 1971 auto racing film Le Mans. 41 years later, the 2.0 of the Monaco is slimmer in size but bigger in style — it now has a sapphire caseback for subtle flexing.
