Editor’s note: While people who collect/amass/hoard watches might find it hard to believe, most people have only one or two good watches, and those watches need to do a whole lot of things beyond tell the time. One of the most crucial things is they need to fit into your life, be able to handle ongoing, daily wear without skipping a beat, and look good while doing it. So, here you go.
Are you under sartorial pressure in your nine to five? Feel the need to up your office attire? Well, we can’t help you with suits and shoes, but wrists? We’ve got you covered. We’ve found four perfect daily wearers that will dazzle your peers, no matter how dull your PowerPoint is.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 41
Over the decades the Datejust has become the definitive everyday casual option, and with its combination of refinement and rugged construction, it’s easy to see why. The Datejust 41, just released in steel, brings the classic up to a modern size and adds a next-generation movement to the Rolex mix. $9300
Oris Divers Sixty-Five
I know what you’re thinking — a dive watch as an everyday dress piece? Madness, right? Hear us out. Oris’ heritage diver is far from chunky, and in this silver dial with a suede strap it’s far more elegant than action. $2800
Nomos Metro neomatik champagner
If you’re an architect or an interior designer you probably already know Nomos. If you don’t, you might just be in the wrong job. If your idea of a work uniform involves more black skivvies and spectacles than your typical office, the Metro could be the way to go. $5690
Angling for a promotion? Get noticed with the Omega Globemaster, a modern take on an old favourite that punches well above its 39mm case size thanks to the METAS certified movement and tungsten carbide bezel. $9125
