A diamond watch is not just a timepiece or a fashion statement. A diamond watch is a milestone. Diamond watches are heirlooms. These are not disposable watches.
A diamond has endured intense pressure over time. Diamonds are known for their high quality, resistance to breaking, and ability to cut glass. Don Draper from Mad Men, with his hair pomade and tailored suits, would be a perfect candidate to have a diamond replica watch. A diamond watch says, “You have arrived.” You are durable, elegant, and strong.
Not only is a diamond watch a tasteful choice for your own replica watch, but also a fabulous gift. Diamonds are popular in engagement rings because we have come to associate giving diamond as a gift is a sign of great regard. The gift is not going to break, corrode, varnish, or diminish in value. The diamond watch you receive reflects the qualities the giver associates with you.
Here’s our list of awesome diamond watches for men:
Bulova Men’s 96E04 Diamond Multifunction Watch
The smallish diamonds and the diny detail work on the face are frustrating to some people, who either wanted more flash or can’t read the watch easily. My eyesight isn’t perfect, but this is a nice-looking enough watch that I would happily take a few extra seconds to read it for the pleasure of wearing a great-looking watch.
With its stainless steel band, I think you can dress watch this up with a black or a dark grey suit. I think you could also get away with wearing this watch with jeans because it definitely has a rugged component. This band says, when paired with jeans and a button-down oxford: “I am prepared for anything.”
Citizen Men’s BL8044-59E Eco-Drive Calibre 8700
This is a beautiful time-piece. You can find it in only gold or two-tone silver and yellow gold. I like the two-tone watch because the braid of gold woven into the stainless steel band lends a wider, and therefore more rugged, look.
- Versatile. It think its ruggedness makes this watch slightly more versatile than the elegance of the single-tone watch. I wouldn’t wear this watch to play touch football, but I would absolutely pair it with jeans, a casual shirt, a corduroy jacket, and loafers.
- Affordable. The Eco-Drive Calibre is a very affordable watch going for between $545 to $725.
- Functional. This watch charges in both light and Japanese quartz movement. The watch also boasts a calendar, alarm, and dual-time functions for the frequent traveler. It is only water-resistant to 330 feet, so it’s not the perfect diving watch– but if you forget to remove your watch before you snorkel, you’ll be fine.
JBW Men’s JB-6215-238-B “Phantom” Diamond Watch
The JBW is a large watch. The strap is well fitted, so it will stay on your wrist, and the watch will stay on its band. Its curved back wears well on the wrist. It’s easy to read. A slight downside is that the watch is difficult to open. The tricky clasp forces you to search online for instructions, so don’t lose your serial number.
Brillier Men’s 16-09 Endurer Gold Chronograph Swiss Quartz Watch
Brillier is well-known for selling certified diamond watches. They are committed to balancing fashion with precision. This particular piece is reasonably priced at about $500. Its high-grade genuine gold-plated case resists flaking. It uses Swiss quartz functions, and it is water resistant to about 50M, which means it is not a diving watch.
You can swim in it if you want to. Personally, I am not looking for a diamond watch to exercise or train in, but if you swim in it, you are not going to ruin it immediately.
Invicta Men’s 0513 Lupah Revolution Automatic Chronograph Diamond Watch
The Invicta, for nearly $800, is going to be one of the least versatile diamond watches you’ll find. With its bulky case and black, leather strap, this looks at first glance like a digital watch, even though it isn’t. Rather than laying flat, this watch attaches at a curve. The design ensures that the watch doesn’t get twisted with wear. It also maintains its position on the wearer so the face doesn’t flip over during the day.
I probably wouldn’t wear this to a dinner at a nice restaurant. Depending on how formal your career is– say, lawyer or accountant or CEO– I would probably not wear this to work either. But it’s a great casual watch for kicking around on the weekend.
The face on the band, along with embedded diamonds, has three elegant gears: Sixty-second, 30-minute, and 12-hour chronograph functions. However, the three gears with the analog face set behind them, make this a watch that is going to take getting used to. I have a hard time taking in all of the information at once, and I would have to train myself to look at the time first, and then the rest of the functions.
Of course, if you have different criteria for choosing a diamond watch, we want to hear about it!
