DRESS WATCHES There’s a watch for every occasion, and when the occasion is on the formal side, you’ll want a dress watch you can count on. These timepieces can be minimalistic and complex at the same time, and there’s much debate about appropriate styles. Whether you’re into time-only displays, high-complication watches, precious metals, or patinas, there are many ways to keep up appearances.
ASK QUESTIONS • Which qualities should I look for in a dress watch? Do I need one? • What’s the best display or dial layout? • Do straps matter when choosing a good dress watch?

By definition a dress watch is one that is warn during a “dress” occasion so I personally would not consider a dive or tachometer type unless it’s exceptionally thin and high quality Though I have my Omega titanium chrono I still prefer to use my Longines classic dress watch, very thin, accurate and understate.

Confusing a dress watch with a Formal or a Tux watch are two different subjects. A dress watch comes down to the same decision as “what tie to wear.“ A tux watch opens the door to any simple or elegant black or white faced watch. Any tourbilon or any dateless Watch, the thinner the better. Your cufflinks are more important than your watch.

A G.O. is far from Old School. This Geman company makes some of finest watches in the world and is as current and contemporary as any.

I guess I'm obsessed with vintage watches and apparently, 34-35mm rolex is my perfect spot. The UN was just an impulse buy. The only special piece for me is that cream dial 1500, it was my first vintage watch.

I used a Bell and Ross Rose Gold Vintage with a Valjoux 7750 movement as my daily watch for years. Love the performance of the watch as I was travelling all the time, adjusting it and then letting it run. With the Valjoux, I loved the thickness and chunkiness of the watch.
