What does your wrist watch say about you?

classy wrist watches

For the past one week, I’ve been extremely busy with a wedding styling job as I was responsible for clothing both the groom and the best man from the ground up, as well as the supply of all menswear accessories they were going to use for the wedding including wrist watches.

I got a Tagheuer Formula 1 David Guetta Special Edition Watch for the stylish groom and an IWC Pilots Rose Gold Men’s Watch for his best man. Anyone that knows these wrist watches would agree with me that they are a classy pair which befits a stylish groom and his best man.

Their expression upon receiving their wrist watches just made me realize how much gentlemen truly love wrist watches. The same way a lady can’t get enough of her shoes and bags, a gentleman can’t get enough of classy wrist watches either.

1. Rolex Yacht-Master 116655 Watch In Everose Gold With Black Ceramic Bezel

classy wrist watches

Rolex debuted a first for the company: the very first, ever, Rolex delivered on a rubber strap – but it’s not an ordinary type of strap – it’s a new type of strap called Rolex Oysterflex. The 2015 Yacht-Master features a delectable, fade-resistant “Everose” pink gold case, which can be had in a choice of 40mm or 37mm sizes, a black gloss dial and a scratch-proof Cerachrom bezel insert. The Chromalight hands and hour markers, meanwhile, glow a suitably maritime blue in the dark.

The Yacht-Master is revered for its casual yet purposeful allure. The large hour markers and broad hands are reserved for Professional models and remain extremely readable in all situations. The Yacht-Master is at home on deck on the open sea as well as on land in an elegant yacht club lounge.

  1. What happened to the Swatch Irony Chronographs ? Not classy enough abi?
    I don’t agree with you sir.

    • Hello Tobi, Believe me there are 100 and more wrist watches that are classy and top notch and here I just limited it to my Top ten and these ones have been selected based on a number of factors..which includes the functions, look & feel, durability, reviews of which over 90% are positive reviews. Swatch Irony Chronograph is certainly not a bad wrist watch at all..I have owned one stainless steel and a brown leather strap type before…its of course a classy one especially their trendy sports chronographs.

    • lol, Tobi swatch no follow nau, when you talk of “class”. meanwhile i think the writer should redo this article and specify classy watches for each range of earners…if you truly talking class @writer, then why should i not see a Corum? a Breguet? a Loius Moinet?

      Swatch can fly for an average gentlemen, I own one i cherish a lot but i know say e no follow when watches come out. Kindly check the profile of these watch makers I mentioned and you will understand. When the price of a wrist watch can buy a Rolls Royce Phantom then you will understand what i meant by “class’

      hehehehe…power pass power sha


  3. dear Mr Kobi– I’m afraid you left several important types and brands of “classy” timepieces off this list… Rolex or Tudor yes but not the best example…and where’s the Omega Speedy, the TAG HEUER Carrera, and the Panerai?!! and let’s not forget the iconic Bell & Ross aviators! please try again kind sir! -GTN

    • very true, i agree….even rolex and likes no follow, bro please check Breguet, Louis Moinet, Corum, Vocheron Constantin, Ulysses Nardin…these are the real class, ask any politician you know…hehehe, u will never see them on rolex…rolex na for small yahoo boys wey pick money or likes of Davido..his father will never wear rolex, nor Dangote
