A dress watch is a formal timepiece for the kind of occasion where you need to look your best. For some people, a dress watch is de rigueur at the office, but for those of us with more casual work environments, they are perhaps better suited for weddings, parties, or a night out on the town.
A dress watch tends to be slimmer than other watch types, largely so that it can easily slip under a shirt cuff when not in use. The design of a dress watch is typically more minimal with less complications or adornments when compared to that of a field watch or a dive watch. It should be elegant and refined, but it need not cost as much as you think. Here are some of our top dress watch picks for your collection.
