CHOOSING THE RIGHT WATCH: THE THIRD WATCH

THE THIRD WATCH:

KEY WORDS: distinctive, timeless, damn good lookin’
Often Worn With: anything from t-shirts to tuxedos
BUDGET: $5,000

WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR:
DISTINGUISHING FEATURES: Maybe it’s the pronounced pilot crown of this IWC watch or the sloping numerals of a Hermès dial: There should always be at least one feature that sets it apart from the rest.
MECHANICAL MOVEMENT: If you’re looking for a watch that will last a lifetime, investing in a timepiece with the kind of craftsmanship that produces mechanical movements, is a sure bet.

WHAT YOU’RE NOT LOOKING FOR:
ANYTHING TOO TRENDY: Trends like elaborate bezels and oversized dials (i.e., anything larger than 44 mm) come and go, but a midsized watch with a fairly basic design and color scheme never goes out of style.
