List Rules Vote on mens watch brands for overall timepiece quality and style

Watches can function as a statement piece, a show of wealth, a pedometer, or simply as a timepiece. The best watch brands are popular with men everywhere, helping them keep the time and look stylish. Though nice watches are not as popular as they once were, a watch is more of a fashion statement than it used to be. There are many name brand watches that are still widely worn and plenty of watch manufacturers designing great men's watches.

The most inexpensive and medium-priced watches are used mainly for timekeeping and are electronic watches with quartz movements. Expensive collectible watches, valued more for their workmanship and aesthetic appeal than for simple timekeeping, often have purely mechanical movements and are powered by springs, even though they are less accurate than the more affordable quartz movements watches. In addition to the time, the most popular men's watches often display the day, date, month, and year. Some watches for men provide additional time-related features, such as timers, chronographs, alarm functions, GPS, and heart monitoring.
