For the Nautical Sportsman

Professional divers have used the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner for more than 50 years. Not only is it waterproof to 1,000 feet, it’s got techy goodies like an “unidirectional bezel for safe immersion time tracking.” Even if your guy barely dips his toes in the water, the blue dial, rotating bezel, and stainless-steel/18k bracelet will give him that air of effortless athletic style. Wilson & Son Jewelers, 18 Chase Rd, Scarsdale, (914) 723-0327 or 29 S Moger Ave, Mount Kisco, (914) 241-4500 $7,825

 

For the In-The-Know Esthete

Coveted by watch enthusiasts for its handcrafted mechanicals and style hounds for its “conspicuous inconspicuousness,” IWC produces a limited number of timepieces for men who appreciate fine detail. The Portuguese Chrono-Automatic combines superb craftsmanship (a self-winding, mechanical, water-resistant chronograph movement) with subtle styling cues (the unexpected dash of rose gold numbers). Wilson & Son Jewelers, 18 Chase Rd, Scarsdale, (914) 723-0327 or 29 S Moger Ave, Mount Kisco, (914) 241-4500 $6,400

 

For the Man of Steel

Who says a ruggedly masculine watch can’t be elegant and formal? This Phillipe Charriol Colvmbvs watch features a stainless-steel bracelet, face, and dial. Its sleek shape and deco Roman numerals play equally well with power suits and polo shirts. D’Errico Jewelery,

For the Dashing Flyboy

Featuring a built-in “navigation computer” (a circular slide rule that performs all the calculations a flight plan requires), this self-winding Breitling Navitimer is the official watch of the AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association). It might be packed with features, but its silver case and 18k-gold rim are remarkably easy on the eyes. Fortunoff,

For the Man with  a Magnetic Personality 

The Philip Stein Teslar Sport Chronograph has a chip that, in combination with the watch’s quartz movement, creates a magnetic field that supposedly helps calm the wearer and resist the “negative effects of energy” given off by cellphones and computers. Even if you don’t buy the manufacturer’s premise, you’ll like the watch’s look. The oversized stainless-steel case holds a black rubber dial with two time-zone displays. The rubber strap has that modernist look that would be perfectly at home on an architect’s wrist. D’Errico Jewelery,
