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 £125

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 £229

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 a midlife crisis way.

3. Sekonda £44.99

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.
