A watch is a significant piece of jewelry that is able to speak for itself. Those who are successful and dabble in the world of luxury already know that it can reveal which man has style and, of course, money. But it is more than just an accessory that tells time: a watch tells others what kind of person you are. Here are the best brands worth investing in.

Of course, one of the first brands to come to people's minds when they think of lavish watches is Rolex. It symbolizes good taste, prestigiousness, and glamour. One popular model is the Day-Date, also known as "the president's watch." For a while, this design was the only one from the company that came in 18k yellow gold, 18k white gold, or 18k Everrose gold, a.k.a. Rolex's own version of gold because of how luxurious it is. In 2022, a new model of the Day-Date debuted a "fluted" bezel for the very first time and featured Rolex's unique ice-blue sunray dial. This upgrade only comes with the Platinum color, which adds a whole new level of exclusivity - thanks to its heaviness and expensive costs.

Back in the 1970's Timex dropped their Timex GMT Q model that became extremely well-liked in the '80s. But the more affordable watch wasn't so popular until 2019 when they re-released their distinctive two-tone bidirectional "Pepsi" bezel - and soon enough, it was again a best seller. For those looking for a timeless, classy look, check out Nomos Glashütte's Tangente Neomatik Platinum Grey. It offers a minimalistic look that still oozes class. The latest upgrade offers automatic movement and a bidirectional winding rotor that protects the mainspring. So let's just say, this watch is definitely a sight for sore eyes. 

Those looking for a unique watch to flex on their left hand should look no further than Breitling. The brand Super AVI Mosquito has a combination of polished and satin-brushed black ceramic bezel and a black dial with white contrasting chronograph counters. It also features red and orange details recalling the roundels and markings found on the plane dubbed the "Wooden Wonder." Happy shopping!
