Fashion writer Nic Giles is back with three options  for those who are looking for a nice watch in the near future.

A versatile grey that can be worn everywhere, especially since it’s water resistant up to 100 meters. Just don’t take it deep-sea diving
Available At fossil.com for $85

There’s something nice about matching the band with the face, especially if said color coordination comes in a smart, not too dark, navy blue.

This by far is my favorite.  THis is $200 well spent, it will wear well for many years to come.  The color will also wor as an accent color with a suit or tie.

You might notice that most of these watch faces are chronographs with three small dials that suggest as much strength and functionality as those hefty bands.  These are all good for events like racing in the pool…or not.
