When it comes to choosing timepieces, every man is aware that there are are a wealth of considerations to be made. Are you after a formal or casual watch? A face with secondary dials and calendars, or nothing more than two ticking hands? Gold, silver, or another material altogether? The nuances in watches are seemingly endless, and can make purchasing one a frustrating task, whether its your first time accessory or just another addition to an already sizeable collection.

Telling the time in an utterly sleek manner, minimal pieces turn away from conventional watch aesthetics to make wearers look like the ultimate modern gentleman.
