The guy’s designer handbag January 8, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Fashion.

There are far less ways for a guy to accessorize so when he does, he better make it count. Take a guy’s watch for example. There’s something distinctly masculine and comforting about a man who wears a watch, and likely the main way for a guy to punch up his look the way a woman would with her designer handbag.

Big faces have been the trend for awhile, though the wide, cuff-like straps are a bit played out now. I like watches that have arresting details. For the 20-30s set, the Vestal “Montecarlo” watch, at $150, is a relatively affordable watch that stands out with its funky retro feel and wood panel-like face. Nixon watches, are another good pick for the casual So Cal guy. Other $200 and below choices include: Diesel and Fossil.

For those who have a bit more discerning taste (read: more moola) check out watches by Italian brand U-Boat. Known for its 18th-century craftmanship and sleek but refined designs, look to spend upward of $3,500 a pop. Other high-end timepieces worth a look: Baume & Mercier, Breitling, Omega and Raymond Weil.

For the high rollers out there, the Cartier Roadster screams luxury at $5k to $10k each. That’s the equivalent of an Hermes Birkin bag for the ladies … don’t get me started on the $20K and up timepieces by Patek Philippe.
