The latest in elegant timepieces

Since the first pocket watch was invented in the 1500s, watches have evolved into a fashion accessory that provides more than just the time. From a sentimental gift to a high-tech travel gadget, different men wear their watches for different reasons.

Many of today’s watches are equipped with handy features, such as a calendar, stopwatch, alarm, night light and dual time zones. And styles vary from a rubber wristband to a leather strap, or an 18-karat white gold bracelet.

According to Neiman Marcus, watches that are automatic or self-winding are very popular, as well as watches with larger faces. Featured here are two of the newest men’s watches available at Neiman Marcus.
