Let's talk about what should be on your wrist right now. Regardless of what you're wearing elsewhere on your body (though you could be a naked Internet reader, who knows), there is a watch to suit your style. Or your suit. Check out one of our favorite brands: Komono.
Komono is the second best thing to come out of Belgium (yes, waffles) and the company infuses pared-down hardware with bold design choices to make awesome watches. They make you feel good, they're excellent to look at, and they're affordable (again, waffles).
Please Don't Hang Up: Miami
The brand name translates to "small things" in Japanese, but Komono's emphasis on detail turns small things into big things. Everything from the stitching on the watch bands to the material of the face has been thoroughly thought out to best reflect today's style. We’re talking paisley to match your tie, embossed and etched leather to match your brogues, even a woven teddybear print to match… whatever.
This laser-etched jet black leather watch band will match both your shoes and your attitude.
Herringbone and embossed leather in a single watch band so you don't have to choose.
Get wood: The perfect shade of brown leather set against a mahogany-hued watch face.
Best part is, these slide in at under a Benjamin each, so you can start a collection and swap at will. We find that Komono watches inject much-needed color into our otherwise dark, woolen world this season.
And with a one-year warranty, these watches won’t crap out any time soon, either. So slap one on your wrist and put an end to the “freckle past a hair” joke. You’re a grown man, after all. (See a dermatologist about weird freckles.)
Like a bouquet of flowers on your wrist, but in a good way.
This blue watch is anything but basic thanks to an ultra-clean, minimalist face.
Paisley reminds us of the grandma's bathroom wallpaper, except this time.
