The regulator movement shows the hours and seconds away from their usual central position, it is the minutes that take centre stage. The minute display, which is of paramount importance to the scuba diver, is thus given most prominence. This watch conforms to ISO 2281 for 1,000 m (3,300 ft) water resistance and not to ISO 6425 for actual diver’s watches. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The trouble with buying a men’s watch is that it’s hard to know where to start. There are so many brands and so many styles that it gets confusing and you don’t have nearly enough time to try and sort it out. So the first tip is to set a budget. It’s easy to get carried away and by setting a budget you will have a definite stopping point so that you don’t haul off and end up buying a men’s Gucci watch. Plus, by setting a limit you also know which brands and styles are out of range and not worth considering.

Now the next step is to consider what he already has in his collection. This could go one of two ways. You can get him a similar watch that he already has (assuming he already has one) knowing that he likes the style and would appreciate another. Or you could say that he already has that style covered and would prefer to have a different style to help fill out his collection.

If you’re still stuck on what to get two pieces of advice are: men love Swiss watches and automatic movements. There is something about having a Swiss watch that just exudes luxury and automatic movements (where the watch winds by the movement of the watch) are considered classy. There are a couple of good brands such as Invicta and Stuhrling watches that are both Swiss and have a huge selection of watches (many of them automatic) at fairly low prices.

I find that having one watch that serves two purposes is best. It needs to be sturdy enough to stand up to the rigors of daily life and yet be stylish enough to wear to parties, etc. I have one in the $400 range and it has lasted me for years.
