Who doesn’t love a beautiful watch? They’re a great way to show that you value functionality while expressing your own individual style. Options are seemingly endless, but if your style is more on the minimalist side of things, you may find it difficult to avoid the flashy styles that seem to be prominent these days. However, if you’re looking hard enough, you’ll find plenty of refined styles that aren’t too over the top. If you’re in the market for a new watch, take a look at these fifteen options that give a polished and professional look without losing any of the style. Alessi Men’s AL13001 This watch features a very basic design with a white analog face, brown leather wristband and a simple stainless steel buckle closure. The markings are simple black lines that don’t intrude too far onto the face, making this a great minimalist style. Buy Daniel Wellington Classic St Andrews The Daniel Wellington Classic has slightly more features than the Alessi Men’s AL13001. It too features a white face but this one displays the minute details. It comes with a brown leather wristband that is interchangeable. Buy Braun BN-46BK The Braun BN-0046BKBKG is a digital watch with a large square face, grey numbering, and a solid black leather wristband. Its all-black coloring ensures that it will blend right in, even with its more modern appeal. Buy Braun BN0024 Watch Simple and stylish, this watch is water resistant up to 150 feet, with a white dial featuring all of the Arabic numerals and a black wristband. It also has a smaller center dial for keeping track of the seconds. Buy Crossover Watch This watch is definitely modern. It features three hands (black, silver, and yellow) that resemble three chopsticks hovering over a pitch-black background. The hands are the only color on this very sleek-looking watch that is otherwise completely black. Buy Brass Sometimes Watch Very contemporary yet old-fashioned, the Brass Sometimes Watch is impressive. It has a brass-rimmed face with matching hands on an otherwise black background. The hands are very simple and square and contrast nicely with the black, which has no markings or numbers. It is affixed to a brown suede band. Buy Tangomat Datum Watch by NOMOS Glashutte This pricey piece is worth the money. It features a complex winding system designed to give you greater accuracy in keeping time. The face is white, rimmed in silver with blue hands to keep track of time down to the second. It also provides you with the date and is attached to a thick black band. Buy 203 Series Watch by Uniform Wares Sleek and grey, this watch is a minimalist’s dream. It has a light grey face rimmed in dark silver with raised silver markings to denote the hours and lighter grey ticks for the minutes. It also features a date window with simple white and black numbering on a black band. Buy Pebble 04 by Bulbul Watches With an asymmetrical face designed to resemble the organic shape of a pebble, this all-grey watch features a silicon-injected face and Italian leather band with simple white hands. Buy Greyhours Essential Black Watch by Julien Gueuning Stunning in all black, this carbon-covered stainless steel watch is covered with an anti-shine glass to keep the glare off for easy time-telling. The hands are light silver and it also features a separate dial for telling the day of the week. The face is a little larger than some at 40 millimeters. Buy Black No.1 Military WristwatchBlack No.1 Military Wristwatch Designed to be extra durable, the black nylon strap on this watch has no screws or hinges. It features a black ion coating over the stainless steel face with silver numbers and details. Buy rvnDSGN 3D-Printed Titanium Watch Earthy and beautiful, the gold NATO band pairs nicely with the textured titanium case, black face with raised details, and gold hands. The surface of this watch is scratch-resistant due to its sapphire lens. Buy MMT Calendar Pocket Watch A pocket watch this beautiful is hard to come by these days. You can choose from a lighter colored maple wood or a darker walnut case, but both have a white face with black details and a durable leather strap with a clip for easy carrying. Buy Black and Tan Watch by MVMT A tan leather band is affixed to the all-black face with dark metal details and a pop of red color for the hand and logo. It is water resistant up to 3atm. Buy Issey Miyake Twelve 38mm Watch While this watch is perfectly round on the face, the inner detail of the rim is edgy and different. Everything else on the watch is so simple and tasteful that it blends right in and sets this piece apart. It has an off-white face with black hands and maroon leather band. Buy
