Best Watch to Wear in 2022
The best wristwatches for men to wear are often simple and practical. For some individuals, there is a more complicated aesthetic that requires careful consideration of the wearer's preferences before deciding whether it would suit their taste. It is this process that led many to find the one. From simple resin bands, and nylon straps to a much simpler, plain gold band with an intricate silver design around the edges, there is a timepiece for everyone. Finding the right one can often make one feel happy, fulfilled or, to some extent, distinguished.

Seiko Turtle reference SRP777
This automatic timepiece is another rendition of a Seiko diving icon first released in the '70s. Now boasting the Seiko Prospex designation, the SRP777 has been updated in several ways while also staying true to its predecessor. The particular case shape of the watch is cushion-shaped, which has earned the model its "Turtle" moniker.
The case comes in stainless steel with a 44.3mm diameter, 13mm thickness, 47mm lug-to-lug length, and 22mm strap size. In addition, to accommodate the traditional 4 o'clock Seiko crown, the case has a sort of "cutout" that lets the crown recess into the profile of the case. This timepiece can be owned at a much more affordable price at only $399!
CITIZEN Chandler Military watch
Field watches are defined by simple and robust designs that highlight their timekeeping capabilities without any flamboyant designs.

SEIKO PROSPEX The 1970 Diver's Re-creation Limited Edition
Wrist-mounted computers with sensors for everything from oxygen levels to pressure readings have taken the helm of preference for the divers.

The latest addition, SEIKO PROSPEX The 1970 Diver's Re-creation Limited Edition, is nothing but a work of art.
The robust watch is a bit larger but faithful in every other aspect compared to its original design. The watch's calibre 8L35, a dual-curved sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating and a super-hard coating, was specially designed to withstand water depths up to 200 meters of water-resistant.
