Kicking Off Your Timepiece Collection

Every man’s man needs a good watch collection to go with your collection of meticulously tailored suits. We’re not talking those mass-produced battery-powered watches here which you can get in just about any men’s accessories store you can walk into, but rather about those precision timepieces which come in their own special packaging.

We all have to start somewhere as well and making the first timepiece purchase can appear to be somewhat of an overwhelming task. One thing that’s for certain however is that you can’t keep pulling your phone out to look at the time – a timepiece for every occasion is mandatory.

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Chronograph


Your eyes may be popping right out of your skull when you look at the price of this chronograph and many others for that matter, but remember that a good timepiece is actually an investment which appreciates in value. This would make a great start to your collection in more ways than one, but mostly because it goes well with just about any outfit you may turn out in, whether casual, semi-formal, smart-casual or all the way formal.

Its sleek silver appearance and sapphire crystal glass face slightly reflects the colours of the clothes you’re wearing, which is what makes it a great choice to kick your collection off with in that it goes well with anything you’re kitted out in and in any environment. No worries about putting it away when you get active either since it’s water resistant for up to 300 metres. Its quartz movement is what makes it a precision timepiece, naturally.

This timepiece is perhaps for someone whose distinct style preference is already established, but it makes for a great choice in your first timepiece nevertheless. You’ll be quite surprised to find that the glaringly blue face actually works well with many outfits as well, while the movement is automatic.

Grant Fossil

This option is considerably cheaper than the others we’ve featured here, but it is indeed a great option for anyone who’s just starting out and isn’t quite sure of their unique taste as yet. The brown straps and pure white face combination make it a formal watch to wear through and through, with a hint of classic class about it with its Roman numerals for digits.

Its straps are pure leather as well so you’ll have to up your game each time with the rest of your outfit when you’re rocking this piece.

Breitling Superocean Chronograph II

This is perhaps the timepiece equivalent of what rappers like to call black on black on black when they talk about their blacked out rides, except with oodles of class to it. The black straps complement the black face with silver trim very well, but it’s the performance of this automatic timepiece which perhaps matches its appearance. Water resistance goes up to a full 500 metres while the black dial operates luminous hands.

A great choice for beginner timepiece collectors who want to kick their collection off with a serious bang!
