Best Watches For Men 2023 - Designer Men's Wristwatch

Did you know your watch says a lot about you, and your style? Besides being used for practical reasons, the right watch adds a little something-something to your wrist, and allows you to make a statement. Similar to your favorite cologne or must-wear pair of sunglasses, sometimes you can never have just one watch. And if you’re looking for the perfect gift for him whether it’s his birthday or Christmas, you cannevergo wrong with one of these totally on-trend (yet, classic) options.

This season we’re still seeing all the great classic silver and gold watches, but now the watch faces are changing – quite drastically, in shape and size. And you know what? We’re ok with that. And while there really are so many options out there to choose from, we wanted to keep our list short-and-sweet so that it’s not overwhelming, but still provides you a variety of choices like designer/dress, casual, sporty, and even a smartwatch option (you probably already know the one we chose).

Here’s our editor’s picks for the best selling and on-trend watches for men in 2023:

1 of 6

Shinola Runwell Quartz Wristwatch
Shinola

Shinola Wrist Watch

$595.00

Buy at Huckberry

One of our favorite watches of the year perfect for everyday wearing comes from Shinola and at a great price from retailer Huckberry. TheRunwell Quartzhas a brilliant blue dial and comfy brown leather strap. What we love the best is that the glass is actually scratch-resistant and even shatter resistant – which, if you’re like us – you find the oddest ways to scratch up your watch.

Editor’s Tip:The 41 MM size really will look great on most wrists – so you don’t have to worry about it looking way to big or, even worse, way too small. When you buy the watch, be sure to register it because it’ll help you with the Lifetime Warranty in case something goes wrong.

Discount Availability:At times Huckberry will offer an extra 10% off when you sign up for their emails. You’ll also get free shipping and free returns (up to 60-days). Get all their offers here.

Michael Kors

Michael Kors Bracelet Watch

$275.00

Buy at Nordstrom

If you’re looking for a classic designer dress watch for that special occasion, one of the top sellers this season comes from Michael Kors. This large Lexington Chronograph Bracelet comes has the perfect mix of silver and gold and is even adjustable if you need some links removed. This one even has a helpful date window on its face so you can keep your phone in your pocket when you ask “What’s todays date?!”

Editor’s Tip:This is definitely on the larger side (45 MM) – but nottoo large. It does have removable links if you need to make it smaller, but we recommend to bring it to your local Nordstrom because they’ll do it therefor you. Amazing.

Discount Availability:Nordstrom typically doesn’t give out promotional discounts, but they do offer free shipping and free returns, so that comes in handy. Get all their offers here.

Movado Bold Leather Strap
Movado

Movado Bold Leather Watch

$650.00

Buy at Nordstrom

If you’re looking for designer, but still somewhat casual, check out this top seller from Movado. It has a brilliant cognac leather strap and iconic blue dial, easy to use buckle closer, and helpful date window. The best part? This watch really will go with anything you’re wearing – from a classic suit to casual jeans and a tee. You can’t go wrong.

Editor’s Tip:With a standard size of 42MM this one won’t sit on your wrist looking too large or too small. If you’re looking for something a bit bigger, we recommend to go up to the 45 MM.

Discount Availability:Nordstrom typically doesn’t give out promotional discounts, but they do offer free shipping and free returns, so that comes in handy. Get all their offers here.

Timex Weekender 38 MM
Timex

Timex Weekender Watch

$49.00
$34.30 (30% Off!)

Buy at Amazon

Perfect for those of us who are looking for something really casual and totally affordable. You can’t go wrong with anything from Timex, really. And theWeekender has a bit of a sporty vibe thanks to the nylon slip-through strap. While we love the olive green color you can actually choose from about 15 more color choices. We love that it’s water-resistant up to 100 feet, so getting it a little wet under normal circumstances will be no big deal.

Editor’s Tip:While itis water-resistant it isnot waterproof, meaning that you can get it wet (a little) while washing your hands or your face (or even if you accidentally dropped it in the toilet), but you shouldnot wearing it swimming or showering.

Discount Availability:At this time, no, Amazon does not offer promotional discounts outside their standard Prime free 2-day shipping. However, when this watch does go on sale, we’ll reflect the new sale price above.

Limited Edition Pilot Black Chronograph
Bulova

$675.00

Buy at Macys

Personally, we love anything that’s limited edition because we feel like we won’t be seeing it on everyone, everywhere. From Bulova, this black leather chronograph option features Quartz movement, a round stainless steel case, three hands, three sub-dials, and even a date window.

Editor’s Tip:This 45 MM option is on the larger side but, don’t worry, it’s not going to look too big. It also has a 3-year limited warranty, but Macy’s doesn’t cover the warranty. So be sure to register with Bulova themselves.

Discount Availability:Macy’s is really good about coupons and promotions. In fact, you can get 25% off just by signing up for their emails. Get all their offers here.

New Apple Watch (Series 7)
Apple

Apple Watch Series 7 [GPS + Cellular 45mm] Smart Watch

$799.00
$547.29 (32% Off!)

Buy on Amazon

You knew wehad to add a smartwatch to our list. Here’s the thing, however, we’re not fans of most smartwatches. But with Apple they really mix smart functionality with style. In their latest Series 7, we’re digging the stainless steel strap and, of course, you can actually choose from other styles, or swap out the strap for different styles, materials, colors, and more. With this 45 MM you can check your blood-oxygen levels, heart-rate, fall-detection, send and receive texts, and so much more.

Editor’s Tip:If you’re going to use your watch when you’re outside of your WiFi range (meaning, not just in your home or office), we recommend going with the GPS + Cellular option – so you can use all of the functionality no matter where you are – like out for a run, a hike, at the beach, etc.

Discount Availability:At this time, no, Amazon does not offer promotional discounts outside their standard Prime free 2-day shipping. However, when this watch does go on sale, we’ll reflect the new sale price above.
