Best Starter Watches for Men

What is a starter watch? It’s a watch gateway drug, basically. It’s what happens when a guy decides it’s time to upgrade from his Movado or Invicta to something a little heavier – he also understands that comes with a budget upgrade.

Rolex is iconic in itself, but there are a few models that any watch lover will instantly recognize – and some most people can place but can’t name. Either way, these iconic Rolex models are the who’s who of the watch world. The Submariner The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner – commonly known simply as the Submariner – was first introduced in 1953 at Basel, and then at the 1954 Swiss Watch Fair. Submariners are specifically designed for diving and are known for their water resistance. Modern Submariners have 3 distinctions: Water Resistance: Water resistance of up to 1,000 feet- thanks Read More →
