One of our favourite things to do is categorising things, like in the case of watches. We create artificial rules for what is a pilot’s watch or a dress watch. Not to blame anyone, but usually, this happens because of the long entailed history or achievements attached to that watch in the past.
Then, where do we put a watch that is too thick to be called a dress or doesn’t qualify the timing ability of a dive piece? We mean the humble ‘Everyday watch’.
You can dress up or dress down an everyday watch and throw it in with almost anything. It can have a nice water resistance and lume and come on a strap or bracelet. All watches, if you want, can be worn as an everyday watch, and the decision is completely yours to make!
Below, we’ll look at some of the best everyday watches that can truly be your go-anywhere-do-anything companion. Without further ado, let’s check out.
The Rolex Datejust has been a popular daily wear choice for decades. It features a sleek, timeless design and is available in various materials, sizes, bezels, dial colours, bracelets and metals. It is up to you the combination you pick.
What To Buy:
The Rolex Datejust Ref. 116234 is a great everyday option, as the classic steel case can never go out of style. While the 36mm case size might appear small, the watch has been a constant hit among men and women. The 18ct white gold fluted bezel opposite the white dial featuring white-gold hands and markers looks stunning. It also has a date function displayed at 3 o’clock, making it a versatile watch for any outfit.
As the Datejust is to Rolex, the Speedmaster is to Omega. It is perhaps the most recognised chronograph in existence. While many argue that the Speedy is a mechanical sports watch, but as said in the beginning, who cares! The Omega Speedmaster Professional looks equally perfect during dignified occasions or a casual day at work, making it a great all-rounder everyday timepiece.
What To Buy:
The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional Ref. 318.104.22.168.01.005 is an iconic timepiece that accompanied NASA astronauts on their missions to the Moon. The watch features a 42mm stainless steel case, a black tachymetric bezel, a black dial graved by small seconds sub-dial, a 12-hour recorder, a 30-minute recorder, a central chronograph hand and a well-fitted steel bracelet. The Speedmaster is a faultless amalgamation of luxury and functionality, making it an all-time great everyday watch.
Watches from Jaeger-LeCoultre have always been enriched with features and clean lines while displaying a range of impressive complications. While some consider them a little too much, others find them highly elegant. If punctuality drives you, then we have the perfect recommendation here.
What To Buy:
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Ref. Q151812A has a 40mm stainless steel case, steel bezel and a white dial which gracefully shelters the day, date, month and moon phase complication. This masterfully executed mechanical calendar timepiece ensures that each element is perfectly balanced and harmonious. This beautiful and reliable timepiece is perfect for those who appreciate impeccable craftsmanship.
The Panerai Luminor started out as a classic dive watch, but today they’re no longer confined to that. The Luminor is an everyday watch whose large, cushion-shaped cases make them a classy option. Moreover, the design options are vast; for instance, you can find them in steel, titanium, goldtech and black ceramic, to name a few.
What To Buy:
The Panerai Luminor Due Ref: PAM00676 has a respectable 42mm polished cushion-shaped steel case and a matching bezel. The sun-brushed black dial has a minimalist arrangement showcasing big, bold Arabic numerals at 12/3/6 o’clock and hour markers and small seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock. Overall, the PAM00676 is a sophisticated and stylish timepiece that gives off a nice attitude on the wrist.
Cartier attributes the popularity of the Santos-Dumont, one of its most historical models, to its versatile style and classic design. The Santos-Dumont pays tribute to the pioneering aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont and hence, the admiration. You can wear the watch on both formal and casual occasions, making it an attractive choice for everyday wear.
What To Buy:
The Cartier Santos-Dumont Ref. WSSA0039 measures 39.8mm with a thickness of 9.38mm. The case and bezel are in steel and ADLC, and the black dial features black steel sword-shaped hands. The steel crown of the watch has a black synthetic spinel. Even though it’s a sports watch at heart but visually, the big, bold design makes it a classic Cartier pick. You can select between the rubber strap and the black alligator skin as per your mood.
In conclusion, choosing the perfect everyday luxury watch is about balancing style and functionality. Whether you prefer a classic design or something more contemporary, there will surely be a watch on this list that will meet your needs. Remember, a high-quality watch is an investment that can provide you with years of enjoyment, become an heirloom, or you can even sell your luxury watch for a good resale value.
