When it comes to classic status symbols, few are more coveted or revered than a well-made watch. It's at once a decadent indicator of a man's worldly success and a useful timepiece built to last a lifetime (or likely more). There aren't a lot of items we buy today and actually think about passing down to our children, but a watch still has that heirloom quality. Or, of course, these are items that retain much of their value and could be sold. There's something to be said for having an item on your wrist that you could offer someone to quickly get you out of a country, right? Whatever your reason, there are plenty of good watches to choose from. These ten are our team's favorite timepieces—a mix of classics and modern-day styles that are worth obsessing over.
