THE LATEST MEN'S WATCHES
The CLASSIC
As the only piece of jewelry a man should wear (except a wedding ring), a first-rate watch commands power and gives your wardrobe a classy spin. You already know that there's nothing like a white-faced men's watch with a black leather or stainless steel band. If a classic timepiece hasn't yet made its way into your fashion arsenal, then that should be next on your to-do list.

THE LOOK OF LEATHER
Leather seems to be a mainstay of the fashion world. One of the hottest looks out there today for guys is a wide leather wristband, and that style has seeped into the watch market. Like this Diesel watch, whose band is a brown leather cuff. It's simple and stylish thanks to its white, minimalist face and steel bar detail. Wearing this watch with a pair of jeans for a casual night out will look great. The second option combines a leather watchstrap with a leather wristband. In stark contrast to the first watch, this timepiece's effect comes from the busy face, more prominent numbers, and double watchstrap. This timepiece is a great way to complete an evening look for a night at the hottest club in town.

HIDING TIME
One of today's popular watches features a face covered by a steel flap, adding an element of originality to your timepiece.Whether you choose a stainless steel or leather strap, this style is a sure-fire way to hide your true intentions. Since it's more of a gimmick than a power accessory, you might want to stick to your executive style watch for the office.

BACK TO THE FUTURE
Some modern-looking watches stray from convention thanks to their face shape and time display. This digital watch tells time from top to bottom rather than clockwise. In addition, a tan strap gives a timepiece a more casual appearance, while the face's shape and style lend a modern, minimalist appeal. This is the perfect watch for your business casual attire, especially when wearing a stylish button-down shirt, flat-front pants and a sports jacket.

IT'S GOOD TO MESH AROUND
If you're looking for a more conservative look that blends class and cool, then a steel watch with a mesh band, likethis one by Kenneth Cole, is the perfect solution. A mesh strap is a good way to show your penchant for style without going overboard, and makes this timepiece a nice alternative to your regular business watch.

FUNKY TIME
Bright, multicolored, nylon straps are popping up on watches everywhere, and make for a great sporty look to add to your jeans and T-shirt, or track pants and sweatshirt. Whether the strap is Velcro, nylon or terry cloth (like a sweatband), a multicolored strap adds a risqu detail to your timepiece, as do the colors in the watch face. This watch is particularly casual and should not be part of your business attire.
