Every man wants something elegant with a beautiful face hanging on his arm for New Year's Eve, like a knockout watch, for instance.

But with a plethora of tasty timepieces to choose from, we've narrowed things down to our favourite three, saving you some time (pun intended).

1. Nixon

With a simple stainless steel face and smart leather strap, this Nixon watch is sharp enough to strap on with a suit, but casual enough for anyone choosing to go low key this NYE.

2. Michael Kors 

Classic bracelet watches don't come much better than this boss number. It carries the same sort of masculine heft as riding a Harley or chopping down a tree does, but in less of midlife crisis way.

3. Sekonda

Again, Sekonda is the maestro when it comes to super adaptable watches. This is the sort of watch that looks good on the wrist of a suited and booted man, but will also look at home as part of casual outfit. Plus, in case you hadn't noticed, it's got a rose gold finish, which is, obviously, mint.
