dress watches no longer need a suit and tie to le­git­imize them. They look as good with a sweat­shirt as they do with black tie. (Pro­vided you care for them— dress watches of­ten come in pre­cious me­tals.)

The kicker, iron­i­cally, is that in a sea of jumbo sport watches, bristling like pocket bat­tle­ships with knobs and doohick­eys, a fine small dress watch is ac­tu­ally way more no­tice­able on the wrist. Go rum­mage in the draw­ers next time you’re at the old folks’ home. —N. S.

Pat­ri­mony man­ual-wind­ing watch ($18,200) by Vacheron Con­stantin; jacket ($6,095, part of suit) by Gior­gio Ar­mani; shirt ($90) by Polo Ralph Lau­ren.
