Black tie watches should be classy, elegant and understated. In my opinion, a true black tie watch should come on a black leather band, it should be encased in a white metal, it should fit under a shirt cuff easily and it should work to complement, not distract from, the outfit. Above all else, a black tie watch should be simple, graceful and ultimately refined.
Omega Trésor Co-Axial Master Chronometer
Classical, timeless and elegant, the Omega Trésor Co-Axial Master Chronometer is a subtle approach to the traditional black tie watch that you can wear with and without a tux.
Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle
Clad in platinum, the Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle represents the upper echelons of classical dress watchmaking and is more than suited to be dressed up or down.
Piaget Altiplano Ultimate
A beautiful combination of slimness and openworking makes the Piaget Altiplano Ultimate a funky and slightly against-the-grain approach to the traditional black tie watch.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin
A symbol of simplicity, elegance and class, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin is the quintessential dress watch for the ages.
Vacheron Constantin Patrimony
The Patrimony is the softer, more delicate approach to the classical dress watch in comparison to the bolder Traditionnelle. Flowing curves, subtle finishings and a look that echoes through the generations of watchmaking, the Vacheron Constantin Patrimony is a fantastic accompaniment.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Duoface
Last, but certainly not least, is the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Duoface. Beloved for its ingenious application and its art-deco design, the cultural icon that is the Reverso is also a wonderful companion for the tuxedo-wearing aficionado.
