A man’s watch speaks volumes about his personality and taste.
A man with a classic taste or an ancestral legacy would probably value a Rolex more, while a young achiever would like to flaunt a Panerai.
Each men’s premium watch brand is designed with a particular kind of man in mind and there is something for everyone, be it a racer, a swimmer, a fashionista or well, James Bond!
Rado is a brand synonymous with high quality, precision watches.
Founded in 1917 and headquartered in Lengnau, Switzerland, the company is known to have launched the first scratch-resistant watch to the world in 1962 called the DiaStar.
Innovative, creative and hi-tech, the scratch-resistant ceramic seen in Rado watches is a trademark of the brand, evidenced by an elegant, glossy patina.
This material is harder than gold, platinum or steel.
The Rado Centrix model R30035712 is the ultimate travel companion for men.
A combination of hi-tech ceramics and stainless steel, the 38 mm case makes this watch robust and classy.
It has a black dial and diamond studded gold hour markers that lend it an elegant look while the yellow gold hour and second’s hand give time legibility even in dim light.
The bracelet is robust, and the combination of black and yellow gold give it a nice timeless look and feel.
2. Tag Heuer
The Tag Heuer Carrera Line invented by Jack Heuer in 1964 to pay tribute to the epic La Carerra Panamericana (The Mexican Road Race) which ran from 1950-1954, is their inspiring range of Chronographs that remain true to the racing inspiration and namesake.

The Moonwatch from the OMEGA Speedmaster family is our favourite with its black elegant looking dial.
The black bezel, with its tachymetric scale, is mounted on a 42 mm stainless steel case and presented on a matching stainless steel bracelet.
Its other features include a small seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock, a 30-minute and 12-hour recorder at 3 and 6 o’clock respectively, a central chronograph hand for measuring short intervals of time and a tachymeter which helps in measuring speed.
The watch is water resistant up to 50 meters and features the famous manual-winding chronograph mechanical movement that was worn on the Moon.
It has a power reserve of 48 hours and the dial is covered by hesalite crystal, which is inherently not so shiny and has less glare, thus ensuring proper visibility even in the harsh sunlight.
