Diamonds have long been touted as the gem to give to a fiancée, girlfriend, or wife, in a watch, ring, or some other form of jewelry. Many men simply dismiss the idea of ever wearing diamonds on themselves, fearing that it would seem too flashy or over the top. However, that idea is quickly disappearing as proven by many male celebrities such as Michael B. Jordan, Maradona, Cristiano Ronaldo, Eminem, and DJ Khaled.
Here’s a list of the best diamond watches for men, if you’re considering buying one for yourself or giving one to a special man in your life.
Hublot Classic Fusion Tourbillon 18K King Gold Diamond men’s watch
This stylish Hublot timepiece is made from 18K king gold, has a 45mm case, and a fixed bezel that is set with impeccable baguette diamonds. The design is sleek and elegant, complete with a black alligator leather strap. It also comes with a date display at the 2 o’clock position. This watch is not only a tourbillon but a skeleton watch as well. The wearer (and anyone else looking) can view and admire its mesmerizing interior mechanisms.
Patek Philippe Grand Complications Celestial 18K White Gold Diamond men’s watch
The Grand Complications Celestial Watch has 38 baguette diamonds set in its bezel, rendering it a splendid luxury design. This Swiss watch has a date display at the 3 o’clock position, a rich blue face that’s simply stunning, and a luxurious blue alligator leather strap. Its functionality is impressive, with a sky chart dial that has hands with silver tones, a date scale by its outer rim, and even a function that shows the moon’s phases.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust White Mother of Pearl Diamond men’s watch
Rolex is an obvious choice when looking for expensive watches for men. This particular Rolex has a 41mm case made of stainless steel and an overall smart-looking design. The hour markers are diamonds, and the face is elegant reflective mother-of-pearl. Each watch is truly unique as the mother-of-pearl can be pink, white, yellow, or black depending on the shell from which it is extracted. This watch has automatic movement, has a power reserve of 70 hours, and is even resistant to water up to 100 meters.
Chopard Silver Dial 18 Carat White Gold Diamond men’s watch
A watch that has a more traditional aesthetic, perfect for those who prefer classy looks from bygone eras. This particular Chopard has a white gold 40mm case that is tonneau-shaped and looks smart, which is paired well with a diamond-set fixed bezel and a sleek, black alligator leather strap. The timepiece has a silver face, and very interestingly, all the numerals are in Arabic, which makes for a great talking point as well as a unique watch face.
IWC Portofino Silver Dial Diamond Automatic men’s watch
With a design that is simultaneously incredibly sleek yet luxurious and formal as well, the IWC Portofino watch is a fantastic choice for those who like a simple watch that still stuns. Sophisticated yet stylish, it has a silver dial and a fixed bezel set with diamonds. It has an automatic movement, a date display by the 3 o’clock position, 42 hours of power reserve, and is resistant to water for up to 30 meters.
Baume and Mercier Clifton Silver Diamond Dial 18kt Rose Gold men’s watch
This particular watch has an incredible, timeless design. With a unique rose gold case and hands, diamonds to mark each hour (except for the 12 and 6 o’clock positions), and a date display at the 3 o’clock position, this watch manages to look beautiful and elegant while being simple as well. It has a black alligator leather strap, a skeleton case back, automatic movement, and a 42-hour power reserve, as well as being water-resistant for up to 50 meters.
Piaget Altiplano (GOA44075, GOA44076, and GOA45051)
These watches are unbelievable. They must be handled in real life, as even though they are stunning in pictures, seeing them with your own two eyes is a different story entirely.
This is due to their rich blue dial, a masterfully crafted dance with whatever light is available. The gradient sunburst dial on these watches can look anywhere from a pitch-black to a bright, glossy blue. They boast thin bezels and lugs which have charming diamonds throughout. The watches are ultra-thin and mechanical, with a black alligator leather strap.
The GOA44075 and GOA44076 models have white gold hour-markers and cases, while the GOA45051’s hour-markers and case is rose gold. All three models are limited edition.
Cartier Santos (WJSA0014)
Although only 35mm in diameter, this white-gold-cased watch has the most diamonds out of any watch on this list. For those with more extravagant tastes, The Cartier Santos has the “QuickSwitch” strap system rather than a full set bracelet. The aesthetic of this watch is basically a full-frontal diamond assault, as the diamonds are set all through the front of the case and lugs. The hands of the watch are a pretty sapphire blue, and the hours are marked by Roman numerals. The strap is a cool grey made from alligator leather, and this watch is water-resistant for up to 100 meters.
Bell and Ross Diamond Dial Black Titanium Automatic men’s watch
Last but not least, for men who prefer something edgy over something polished and elegant, the Bell and Ross Diamond Dial watch has a 46mm square, black titanium case. Its center is a skull motif made out of 259 diamonds, and its case has 156 black diamonds. With a self-winding automatic movement, this Swiss-made watch has a black Shagreen strap and is resistant to water for up to 100 meters.
