Bering Max René Quartz Analog Silver Men's Watch 

This popular Bering Max René Quartz Analog Silver is powered by a quartz movement for reliable timekeeping and features a 40mm casing diameter as well as a slim 7mm depth. The watch is fitted with a delicate Milanese strap and fastens with a buckle-style clasp. The dial features a simple, minimalist design with slender silver-coloured hands and indices for every 15-minute interval. The dial is then encased in a strong sapphire crystal glass for scratch protection.

Thanks to the simple colour scheme and sleek design, you’ll be able to pair this Bering watch with just about any casual or corporate wear.

Bering Classic Quartz Analog Silver Men's Watch

Designed with an outer casing made using stainless steel, this watch has a superior quality built that sets it apart from other men's watches within the Bering collection. It is precision-powered by a quartz movement and features a stunning blue dial with complementing silver indices. Built to be water-resistance, the watch is also equipped with a small date window. 

Despite its simplicity, the Bering Classic Quartz Analog Silver Men's Watch is a trendsetting timepiece that is versatile enough to be worn with any outfit anywhere.

Nixon Staple Digital Men's Watch

There is no doubt that Nixon approaches horology with an innovative sensibility, as the brand took a different and playful route with the Nixon Staple Digital Graphite Men's Watch. Usually, a digital watch can sometimes feel and look a bit too cluttered, but Nixon solves that problem with a super clean and uncomplicated design. The watch features the brand’s straightforward approach to modern, stylish design, has a 38mm case size and conveys a crisp, dressy yet kitschy vibe. Equipped with advanced technology that allows you to customise the display, this Nixon watch ensures you don’t miss a beat or compromise on your sense of style. This Nixon collection of men’s watches is available in four Singapore colours. 

Nixon Quartz Sentry Brown Men's Watch

The combination of the leather strap and gold dial of the Nixon Quartz Sentry Brown Men's Watch is what we think makes it a standout piece. But, what makes this an all-time favourite is the functionality of its Japanese quartz movement and the high-quality materials used to make this watch. The dial is easy-to-read with clearly visible hour markers and second trackers, making it simple and perfect for everyday wear. 

Timex Marlin Automatic 3 Hands Date Men's Watch

Those familiar with the vintage Timex Marlin released in the 1960s may probably recognise the modern-day contemporary version of it with the Timex Marlin Automatic 3 Hands Date Men's Watch. The watch keeps to the same design as its predecessor, with just a few tweaks to help it stay in line with the modern age of timekeeping. 

But, the dial is the true highlight of this watch – while it may not look as grandiose as other luxury dress watches, it shows off a simple and classic charm that is hard to beat. The green dial showcases a metallic finish with slim applied indices, thin luminous sword hands, a minute track on the rim of the dial, and a compact window with a black background and white text at 3 o’clock. With no flashy or overly complicated designs to distract its wearer from the watch face, the focus is thus placed squarely on the exquisite splendour of this dial.
