Bold styling, reminiscent of classic aviator or diver watches. Water resistant. Watch itself is sturdily built and resists scratching, standing up to daily wear and tear.
Wristband and its metal parts can deteriorate after several months.
Sleek, all-black design still “pops” with detail. Raised lip on the end of the watchband keeps it in place when fastening and unfastening. Smaller profile than most Diesel watches, making it great for office wear.
The poly watchband is uncomfortable in hot temperatures. Watch face scratches easily, and decorative material seems cheap.
Super-chunky, stylish watch that stands out when worn on the wrist. Big and tall men will find it a great fit as well. Despite its size, not too hefty.
Not water resistant; even a glancing pass through a running tap may fog the glass. Standard-sized band, meaning users may need to order a replacement size smaller or bigger.
Fits big and tall men very comfortably. Extremely large and very heavy, in typical Diesel chunky style.
Not water resistant. Watch face is way too big for some to handle. Watch band may be a few links too small for some larger wrists.
Automotive-inspired styling with unique details on the face and the band. Big, but not chunky and not too heavy for daily wear. Water resistant.
Watch face is very “busy,” with two chronographs that are not easy to set. User manual is not specific to the watch model.

In a market that sees a lot of copies, Diesel watches stand out for their unique functionality and watch faces. Often sporting a modern analog look, their watch line offers traditional and high-tech models for a variety of occasions and uses. When choosing the right model, it is important to consider the fit, comfort, style, and function of each option. Depending on the size of your wrist, you may find a standard time piece with a leather band more comfortable than some oversized options with metal bands. For function, some models are just basic timekeepers while others are smartwatches with touchscreens and advanced capabilities.
