Rolex Day-Date 40

Summary List Placement

A watch is as much a part of a well-dressed man’s attire as his shoes or tie. It should complete the ensemble without drawing attention to itself: always in style, with any choice of formal or casual wear, suffering none of the vagaries of fashion. It should look as appropriate now as it would have 20 years ago or two decades from now.

Not surprisingly, the style and design codes of the dress watch haven’t been altered to any great extent over the last few decades — or for that matter, the last century. 

I should note that in this ever-increasing informal age, the list below is very much a personal choice: I favor a clean and parsimonious approach to the dial, with only hours, minutes, and perhaps seconds, so the time of day can easily be read. The watch should slip easily below the shirt cuffs of your favorite formal shirts, but also look equally good with your less formal wear.

In short, the ideal dress watch should be timeless. And while it’s not a requirement for it to be mechanical, the five selected below all are.
