Men’s minimalist watches have simplistic styling that makes them ideal for casual wear, work, and dressy occasions. Watches that fit into this category often have thin faces with markers or classic numbers, but without features that can look “busy” such sub-dials or date windows. They are also available in all metal or with fabric or leather bands. If you are considering a watch with minimalist appeal, ask yourself if you need a second hand, as some extremely simplistic styles don’t have them.
