Men’s watches are as much for telling time as they are for making a statement: Ones with stainless steel bands are great everyday timepieces that look especially sharp with suits. Ones with leather straps and colored faces are more relaxed for weekends and less formal settings. For something more casual still, ones with nylon and canvas straps and feautures like LED illumination are also available to shop.
