8 WATCHES THAT ARE A GUARANTEED STYLE HIT
When investing in a watch, it pays to be able to distinguish serial chart toppers from one-hit wonders. Make a sound purchase with the Men's Health Synchronised guide to the horological hit parade.
1. FOR THE HIP-HOP HEADS: Gucci GG2570
A triumph from new creative director Alessandro Michele, this chic piece is named after his lucky number, followed by Gucci’s hallmark decade the ’70s (when hip-hop was born). Appropriately for a label-loving culture, its dial features a subtle ‘G’ monogram. £570.
2. OFFSETTING THE CLASSICS: Festina Chrono Bike
Affordable, contemporary, and rooted in over a century of Swiss watchmaking heritage, Festina strikes a smart-casual compromise. This watch straddles the sartorial divide between a day spent running errands and an evening at a gig. £229
3. HEAVY METAL: Graff Diamonds Graffstar Slim Eclipse
Coming on like an AC/DC vinyl reissue, this black-on-black number is a departure for the sparkling Graff. Made of titanium and coated in diamond-like carbon, it will emerge unscathed from the gnarliest moshpit. £12,500
4. TECHNO ANTHEMS: Breitling Emergency Night Mission
Emitting a dual-frequency distress signal to local search teams when its coiled-wire beacon is deployed, this watch is now kitted out in carbon-coated titanium. It’ll brave the elements, even if you can’t. £15,340
5. INDIE JANGLERS: Bremont Solo Polished
The flagbearer for Britain’s sputtering watchmaking revival, Bremont’s polished new version of its simplest model shows that – putting military collabs aside – the brand really does understand elegant watch design with flawless execution. £2895
6. JAZZ RIFS: Movado Circa Chronograph
A perfect rendition of a ’50s driver’s chronograph, down to the logarithmic tachymeter scale on the edge that lets you calculate time, distance or speed. A jazzy surprise from a cult Swiss firm that’s usually more New Romantic. £795
7. CLASSICAL MOVEMENTS: IWC Portofino Eight Days
There’s enough soul and élan in the Portofino collection to justify its synonymy with the Italian Riviera’s most stylish address. It even has a leather strap made by Santoni – the shoemaker of choice for every Italian stallion. £7990
8. COUNTRY RANGERS: Longines Heritage Military COSD
Just when you thought we’d reached peak Nato strap, Longines releases this slice of nostalgic cool. The Heritage Military faithfully adopts the utilitarian design of a piece created in the ’40s for the British Special Forces.
