Luxury Watches for Real Men

June 26, 2008


What happened to those days when guys wore suits every day? The days of hats, watches and pocket squares. I remember my grandfather always carried a handkerchief for those occasions when a lady might need it. My father and my grandfather raised my cousins to always wear watches because it was a sign of a punctual gentleman. Those days when people cared about their appearance seems to fade with time. Speaking of time, where have all the watches gone? Probably onto that iPhone or the Blackberry. The editors at Gentleman’s Quarterly, better known as GQ, think it’s time the boys turned to men. You see guys, wearing a watch is a sign of sophistication and maturity. You don’t have to whip out a cellular phone to tell time when a lady asks for it anymore.

As part of GQ’s fall fashion and accessories edition, the editors took the time to peruse numerous watches and chose the top twenty timepieces that are sure to catch people’s eyes. These watches are made for real men. A timepiece is something that will last for decades and can even be passed down to your grandchildren so investing in a quality is a must. The watch pictured above is one of the most expensive watches I have ever laid my eyes on. At $370,000, the De Grisogono Di Meccanico dG, is in a league of its own. The Grisogono Di Meccanico dG is the first entirely mechanical watch with a digital display that shows a second time zone. Break the mold with this limited-edition Meccanico dG. The Meccanico dG measures in at 56 x 48 mm, the size of some watches, because of the dual display. If you have $370,00 laying around, this watch is sure to be a conversation starter at the country club or on the golf course. The watch is available at de Grisogono, (212) 439-4220.
