If you’re getting into Swiss watches, browsing through the excellent lineup of wristwatches by Tissot is a great way to start. Tissot’s mechanical watches have some of the best designs and builds and the Tissot Men’s PRS 516 Stainless Steel Watch is a fine example of that.
This watch is a beautiful chronograph in a clean silver design with a black tachymeter and red accents. The white dial has a neat modern construction that certainly stands out for the watch’s overall design. It’s as good as a quartz watch can get, with a 2-year seller warranty and stainless steel construction with a 42mm case diameter.
The Seiko 5 SNK805 is a rugged watch meant for those occasions when you need a timepiece during strenuous physical activity and exercise. It’s a military-inspired watch with green dial and a 37mm case diameter in stainless steel. It’s topped off with a durable green nylon strap with buckle closure that will likely not need replacing anytime soon.
A date and day display window is located at the 3 o’clock marker. The hands and indices are luminous as well, which makes it easier to tell time in dim environments. It’s one of the affordable choices in our list, and it’s definitely worth the purchase considering all that this watch can offer.
The Junghans Form A is as simple as a mechanical watch can get while still being very functional. It’s a Swiss automatic watch with a white face, 39.3mm case diameter, exhibition case-back, and a light brown leather strap. Mechanical watches with minimalist designs rarely look this good, and it’s a great wrist watch to go for especially if you’re into that kind of aesthetic.
The great thing about this watch is that it isn’t just for show. Its dial window is made of highly durable sapphire crystal that keeps your watch damage-free for years to come. An anti-glare coating is applied on the dial window for better visibility during the day.
The Tissot Men’s Gentleman Swissmatic should fit your look, no matter what you wear. It’s a Swiss automatic watch with a 40mm stainless steel case that looks great on the wrist.
