10 Watches For a Classy Wardrobe

Watches are an aspect of fashion and technology that has long been an important but often overlooked aspect of men’s wardrobes. In today’s all-in-one world, it can be easy to justify forgoing the watch in favor of an easily accessible cell phone, but where is the fun in that!

Nothing compares to choosing the right watch for your mood or suit. Do you go classic or high tech? An orange band or the perennial classic leather? The watch is certainly an increasingly rare accessory, so here are 10 watches that you can never go wrong with:

A reflection of American sophistication at an affordable price, the Jorg Gray JG6500-44 is a perfect choice for the sophisticated man.
