Last month, I revealed what a woman’s watch says about her, but the conversation doesn’t stop there. You see, most men will only wear two pieces of jewelry in their lifetime: a wedding ring and a wristwatch. That being said, a lot rides on a man’s taste in arm candy. Here’s a roundup of the season’s finest and the guys who were born to wear them.

The Wannabe Gordon Gekko

Formality Textured Strap Watch ($360) at Calvin Klein

His favorite movie is Wall Street, obviously. He may or may not work in finance, but at some point, his ringtone has definitely been Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’.”

The Hipster

Timex for J.Crew Vintage Field Army Watch ($98) at J.Crew

For aspiring creatives, start-up entrepreneurs and normcore dabblers, J.Crew is a go-to source. Plus, this ambiguous Timex has “vintage” in its name, so that’s a plus.

The Boyfriend/Fiancé/Husband of a ‘Basic’

Bleecker Stainless Steel Chrono Strap Watch ($398) at Coach

His significant other loves brand names (read: Kate Spade, Coach and Tory Burch). He loves that his wrist action, leather shoes and briefcase all match.

The Trend Chaser

Grant Chronograph Blue Leather Watch ($135) at Fossil

He reads GQ religiously and wants you to know it. The fashion bible declares that rose gold isn’t just for girls, and this Fossil gem proves it, bro.

The Preppy

Nixon ‘The Private’ ($150) at Barneys New York

Good ol’ boys adore camel-leather anything. Its classic, kind of sporty and implies, “I’ve driven a BMW or two in my lifetime.”

The Dad Worshipper

Rectangle Case Watch ($59.50) at Jos. A. Bank

His dad wore a rectangular watch, and so did his dad’s dad. Tradition isn’t everything—it’s the only thing.

The Old Soul

Tissot Savonette Quartz Pocket Watch ($225) at Luxury of Watches

He adores Hemingway and wishes he had part of the Lost Generation. His idea of nirvana is posing by a roaring fireplace, wearing velvet smoking slippers and occasionally checking the watch nestled in his jacket’s inner pocket.

The Yachtsman

Blue Accent Watch ($200) at Armani Exchange

This guy adores the Kennedy family. If he had his way, he’d live on his boat until the ripe old age of 35 and then run for Congress.

The Club Kid

The Time Teller P ($60) at Nixon

For the techno-music lover who makes regular treks to Miami (until he can afford Ibiza), this watch says, “I’m with the DJ.”

The Marathoner

The Scavenger Stopwatch ($195) at Tommy Hilfiger

He’s run the New York City Marathon and is perpetually talking about signing up for his first Ironman. Tommy Hilfiger’s stopwatch will ensure his times are in check.

The Tech Guy

The Slim Square ($133) at 01TheOne.com

He spent most of high school playing WoW (that’s World of Warcraft, n00bs) and now has a sweet tech job that allows him to wear hoodies to work. His binary watch is counting down the days until the geeks inherit the Earth.

The CEO

Pebble Steel Smart Watch ($149.99) at Best Buy

With emails constantly coming in from Tokyo, London and Hong Kong, the big man in charge needs easy access to global communication. And with all that business travel, he’ll want to keep his apps and music at his fingertips, which means you’ll never really know if he’s crunching numbers or rearranging his Netflix queue.

The Mr. Perfect Health

Basis Peak Fitness and Sleep Tracker ($199.99) at Best Buy

This guy is in top form at all times. He loves that this portable physician of a timepiece is monitoring his vitals during his weekly Whole Foods run.

The Tastemaker

Apple Watch (starting at $349) at Apple

It doesn’t matter that this watch doesn’t come out till 2015. The insider of all insiders has been test-driving it for months. He posts envy-inducing selfies of it from the juice bar, private gym and a local celebrity’s pool with the Instagram hashtag #blessed.
