Black Dial, Black Band, & Black Case Sport Watches
The all black/blackout sport watch has been gaining in popularity, and GQ even did a one page feature on them in their August issue. Now they focused on watches that even the numbers were black. Some of you might actually want to use one of these to tell time, so… that wasn’t a requirement here. But the black on black on black theme is pretty slick, and undeniably masculine. Whether you’re just scraping by, or living the high life, one of these black on black on black watches should make a nice addition to your wrist.
Under $106: Wenger Ranger – $77.60 | Tommy Hilfiger Ion Plated Sport – $105.00
Yes that was supposed to read under $100, but the Hilfiger is worth the extra five bucks. The Hilfiger watch strap is silicone, the Wenger is rubber. The Wenger is simple but the price? Unbeatable.
Under $200: Wenger 72424 Aerograph – $187.85 | Golana Diver’s Watch – $180.00
Speaking of Wenger, this one has a flight dial inspired square case, with aviation inspired hands. Like a middle class version of a Bell & Ross. The Golana Diver’s watch looks great, but probably isn’t the easiest to read underwater. Sure the hands and dial markers are luminescent, but one of the things it has going for it is how small all those details are. Probably better to get something easier to read if you’re headed underwater. Otherwise, looks great.
If a Luminox is good enough for the Navy Seals, I’m guessing it’ll get the job done for you too. As far as the Burberry goes, the price is jaw dropping, but… look at it. It’s the holy grail of the all-black sport watch. Buy one of those and you best be getting it insured. (Or at least make sure it’s covered under your homeowners/renters policy)
