We know, we know—you can just about do everything from your smartphone these days, including telling time. But, picture this: You’re standing on the sidewalk, minding your business, when a pretty stranger walks up to you and asks for the time. Before you fished out your phone in your pocket, she’s already moved on to the next kind face beside you.

Signifying both tradition and innovation, there’s something timeless about sporting a watch on your wrist. It’s a habit we’ve carried from our fathers and grandfathers, yet a wristwatch could also reflect the latest tech in watchmaking.

Whether you’re rocking a sporty chronograph or a vintage dress piece, a watch is always a welcome accessory in any man’s wardrobe, no matter the time of day or occasion. Let these famous men be your guide to wearing one. 

Dingdong Dantes

Ever the roguish fellow, Dingdong wears leather jackets, bombers, and sportswear with ease. The actor goes monochrome with a black leather jacket and an all-black sports watch with a rubber strap.

Jericho Rosales

Jericho has managed to establish himself as the king of cool, and this adventure fit is no exception. He wears an updated take on the safari look: a brimmed hat, a camisa de chino, cargo pants, and a classic steel watch. 

Atom Araullo

Leave it to Atom to make rubber-strap watches look cool. The journalist and Citizen Jake star creates an effortless feel in a baseball T-shirt, a pair of wayfarers, and a black-and-olive wristwatch. 

Nico Bolzico

Well-tailored suits and fine dress watches are a classic match straight out of the menswear book. Just take a look at funny guy Nico, who sure can clean up well as evidenced in this photo with Hugh Jackman. His classic timepiece with a black leather band finishes off his suit well. 

Erwan Heussaff

Erwan makes the case for an oversized watch, rocking a large-faced timepiece with leather straps and a steel case. Its brown leather and loose fit pair nicely with the slouchy feel of his kimono-style jacket.

Adrien Semblat

Again, with oversized watches, simplicity is key. Those with meatier wrists will have no trouble pulling these off, as seen on Adrien, who wears an understated look with an all-black timepiece and an oxford button-down. 

Victor Basa

A quick way to channel a smart appearance is to don a watch. This timepiece on Victor has a navy dial and a mesh-metal strap that's great for an everyday work look.

AJ Dee

When wearing a sport coat, you can get away with putting on a large-faced watch as opposed to a dress watch. Also, details matter: Notice how the blue face on AJ's wristwatch matches his shirt and trousers.
