Imagine: Someone approaches you to ask for the time and you flex your wrist and then delve into the handsomeness of your timepiece. The color and type of leather, in particular, reveal your style and intent. Black or dark-colored leather says you are in a serious mood, while a tan or brown hue can switch between casual and business dress codes. Make a good impression with these leather watches for men.
