There are certain wardrobe staples that every stylish man needs to own: a classic blue blazer, the perfect dress shoe, a well-tailored suit – these are all givens. But as we’ve stated many a time before, no ensemble is truly complete without the finishing touches that elevate an outfit to refinement. More often than not, the final piece of the sartorial puzzle is a well chosen wrist watch.
A timepiece says a lot about its wearer, and we’re here to make sure you’re making the right statement. Join us in our series outlining the best choices for a fully rounded watch wardrobe with the timepieces that every man should own.
We’ve shown you the sports watch. We’ve shown you the weekend watch. but we love this combination for the two for the ultimate in upscale casual.
The Raymond Weil RWSport 8520-STR-05207 is a perfect shade of gunmetal gray, and keeps it modern with an exaggerated case size and mixed material bracelet. The rubber interspersed stainless steel creates a rugged style for the otherwise super-sporty watch.
We like the texured dial and the pops of red on the subdials and second hand. Plus, a tachymeter with miniscule writing adds another layer of interest (and function) to the sleek bezel.
This watch is perfect for summer and will wear well into the fall, thanks to its stormy color palette. It pairs well with barbecue attire just as well as it will with your favorite team’s jersey come time for your Fantasy draft.
