3 Watch Styles for the Professional Man

When it comes to important every-day items, the watch is high up on the list. A fashion statement as well as a practical essential, they can be the finishing touch on any look. From formal to casual, a good watch can be incredibly versatile. But when you’re in the market for a new watch, how do you know what to look for? What style should you go for?

At Gerard McCabe, we have been producing our watches for many years. And, as Adelaide jewellers, we know that finding the perfect watch can be easier said than done.

There are a number of important considerations to think about when buying a watch. Firstly, you have to think of it’s practicality. Do you need a watch that is water resistant? Do you travel a lot and need a watch with a dual time zone? You need to ask yourself these questions to ensure that the watch you purchase is the best fit for your needs.

7 Watches for the Distinguished Gentleman


After you have given thought to the practical applications, it’s time to think about style. Is this watch going to be one for special occasions, everyday wear or does it need to be able to cater to both? Do you favour bright coloured shirts or more neutral tones?

If you’re not sure what style of watch you should go for, here are a few examples that can help guide you on your watch-selection journey. 

The Manhattan

Classic and sophisticated, the Manhattan Timepiece from Gerard McCabe is the perfect look for the professional man. Designed to keep pace with even the busiest of schedules, this luxurious watch is enhanced by the stunning weave of stainless steel serving as the band. With a stopwatch function and a date display, this watch is perfect for those who are always on the go. And, with it’s timeless sleek appearance, it is perfectly suited for both casual, professional and evening wear.

The Regent

If you’re looking for a watch that is as much a statement as it is useful, a style such as the Regent Timepiece by Gerard McCabe will be a great fit. This masterful creation combines stainless steel and rose gold plates, incorporating open windows around the face to emphasise the design.

This design comes with the option to have a silver, blue or black face on the watch, so you can pick out a style that will best suit your wardrobe.

This watch is the ideal accompaniment for a well-tailored suit, but can also serve to dress up a smart-casual look.

The Synchronicity

If you favour lighter colours and hues, this Synchronicity Timepiece will do you proud. With an effortlessly classic charm, this piece has a dual time and date feature, so you can keep connected while you’re on the move.

Also boasting a 10ATM water resistance, this watch’s handsome leather strap is subtle yet undoubtedly alluring. Pair with a short-sleeved button-up shirt for a day at the cricket, or let it’s colour accentuate a dashing navy blue or charcoal suit.
