Are you looking to gift that special man your life? Why not surprise him with a fashionable watch! We’ve compiled a list of stylish yet affordable luxury watches that won’t break the bank, as featured in Alpha Magazine. They say a diamond is a girl’s best friend, but watches often make a bold statement for men!
Montblanc TimeWalker Extreme Chronography DLC; AED 25K
This watch is rugged with a diamond like carbon (DLC), which adds toughness to the stainless steel case. This sporty yet elegant watch has a rather unique user face, and is perfect for those who are modern and like the unconventional. The straps are made out of vulcarbone cautchouc, which is durable and flexible. This can be found at most watch stores or department stores such as Galeries Lafayette.
IWC Aquatimer; AED 22K
This base stainless steel watch is ideal for the adventurous and sports lovers! The watch is equipped for those who love to be in the water, as its internal bezel moves anticlockwise to prevent any accidental movement, which can be a common occurrence for divers. Also, due to a super-luminova coating of the internal bezel, you are guaranteed clear legibility regardless of visibility conditions. The watch also glows in the dark; it turns neon green for dive time and blue for hour display. The timepiece has a masculine and sophisticated appeal, and comes with either a mint green or bright yellow dial. This can be found at most watch stores or department stores such as Galeries Lafayette.
Baume et Mercier; AED 13,900
This urban designed watch was inspired by a “historic Baume & Mercier timepiece dating back from the 1950s,” according to the official Baume et Mercier website. The watch is silver colored with a sun satin finish and accentuated with blue steeled dauphine. The intricate design and alligator strap with an adjustable triple folding buckle makes this timepiece ideal for city-dwellers or anyone who appreciates modernity. The watch measures 12 hours and provides calendar information as well. This can be found at most watch stores or department stores such as Galeries Lafayette.
Ralph Lauren Safari RL67 Chronometer; AED 12K
This timepiece is ideal for those who appreciate a more casual look, as it features a bold and easy to read display that’s accentuated with a red second hand. Its petite frame is also quite distinguished from other men’s watches on the market. The strap is olive green with a gun metal buckle. This can be found at most watch stores or department stores such as Galeries Lafayette.
