Four business watches for men in different grades

Although sports watches are now very popular, men should still have a business watch to cope with the workplace. Today we recommend four different men’s business watches from four iconic brands – Seiko, Longines, Omega and Rolex.

Seiko Cocktail SRPB41J1
Many people start their first mechanical watch with Seiko. There are many Seiko business watches, but the most popular is definitely its Cocktail Collection, which is a great value for money and an affordable price. It is undoubtedly one of the best choices for the money. This SRPB41J1 is one of the more popular business watches in the Seiko Cocktail collection, with a stainless steel case, a 40.5mm diameter and a beautiful gradient blue cocktail dial. Inside the watch is the Calibre 4R35 self-winding movement, which has a power reserve of 41 hours. Although the movement is modest, the price is extremely attractive, with an official price of RMB 3,100, which may actually be just over 2,000.

Longines Masterpiece Annual Calendar
Probably one of the most popular business watches, the Longines Masterpiece Annual Calendar was launched 2 years ago and created quite a buzz. The watch distinguishes between the days of the month, which means that it can distinguish between a month with 30 or 31 days, without the need for manual adjustment. The annual calendar window is located at 3 o’clock, and the blued steel hands with the barley-grain decorated silver dial are very detailed and fine. The dial is a classic Longines Masterpiece signature design that lives up to its elegant name. The watch is housed in a stainless steel case with a diameter of 40 mm and houses the exclusive Longines self-winding mechanical movement with a power reserve of 64 hours. The watch has a back-transparent design that allows you to admire the movement inside. The official price of the watch is RMB 18,300.

OMEGA Seamaster AQUA TERRA 150m
The OMEGA Seamaster AQUA TERRA 150m is sporty in its own right, but is perfectly at home as a business watch. The OMEGA AQUA TERRA 150m with blue dial and blue leather strap features a horizontal “teak” It also features a date window at 6 o’clock, rhodium-plated hands and hour-markers, and a white Super-LumiNova coating. The hands and hour-markers are rhodium-plated and coated with white Super-LumiNova. The central seconds hand and the four quarter-hour numerals on the minutes circle are painted blue. The watch is equipped with the OMEGA 8900 chronometer movement, Fashion Replica Rolex Watches shop which has a power reserve of 60 hours and is resistant to strong magnetic fields of up to 15,000 gauss. The watch is housed in a stainless steel case with a diameter of 41 mm. The official price is RMB 43,500 for the leather strap model and RMB 46,100 for the steel strap model.

Rolex Logitech 41 Blue Plate
The last model is the replica Rolex Logitech 41 Blue (model 126334), which is the most popular because of its colour. The 126334 is also available with a white, black or grey dial. The case is made of 904L stainless steel and the triangular-pitted bezel is made of 18ct white gold. It has a 41mm diameter and houses the top chronometer-certified calibre 3235, which boasts a top-notch chronometer precision of 2 / + 2 seconds per day and a very long power reserve of 70 hours. The official price of the watch is RMB 75,400.

Audemars Piguet Ice Blue Disc Royal Oak Chronograph, cheaper than Rolex Ice Blundy

Rolex has brought fire to many dial colours, such as green and ice blue. While green dials have become more common in recent years, ice blue dials are less common, not to mention a near-perfect match like the Rolex Ice Blue Diamonds. So when Audemars Piguet launched an ‘ice blue dial’ Royal Oak chronograph some time ago, it was hard for me to ignore it.

But Audemars Piguet doesn’t officially call the colour of its new watch “Ice Blue Plate”, instead describing it as “light blue”. In fact, back in 2019 Audemars Piguet launched a Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar in the same colour (Ref. #26574PT.OO.1220PT.01), interestingly with a 950 platinum case and platinum strap, in a limited edition of 50 pieces. The “Ice Blue Plate” Royal Oak self-winding chronograph (REF. #26317BC.OO.1256BC.01), introduced in 2020, has been downgraded to an 18-carat white gold case and bracelet, but is a three-eye chronograph like the Ice Blue Diamonds. Not only that, but it is considerably cheaper than the Rolex Ice Blundy.

Compared to the dreamy dial colour of the Rolex Ice Blues, the Audemars Piguet “Ice Blues” Royal Oak Automatic Chronograph has a more subdued and refined dial colour. The light blue dial is engraved with a large “Grande Tapisserie” pattern,perfect replica rolex watches with a blue subdial and a dark blue outer zone, with white gold luminescent applied hour markers and hands. The different shades of blue are both visually appealing and easy to read as a chronograph, with a date window between 4 and 5 o’clock. Personally, I prefer the calendar-free design of the Rolex Ice Blundy. But luckily the calendar has the same base colour as the dial, which somewhat blurs the outline of the calendar window.

Apart from the material differences from the Rolex Ice Blundy, which is made of 18-carat white gold, the watch is also a different size from the Ice Blundy. Whereas the Rolex Ice Blundy is 40 mm in diameter, this “Ice Blue Plate” Royal Oak self-winding chronograph is a little smaller at 38 mm in diameter. But in the same way that the Ice Blue Diamonds have captured the hearts of both men and women, this Royal Oak Chronograph with Ice Blue Dial is certainly not limited to men.

The watch features a glareproofed sapphire crystal and a screw-down crown. It is slightly unfortunate that it is only water resistant to 50 metres.

Inside the watch is the self-winding Calibre 2385, oscillating at 3Hz, with a power reserve of 40 hours, an automatic oscillating weight in 18-carat gold, 37 stones and 304 parts, based on the legendary Frederic Piguet Calibre 1185. In fact, the Caliber 1137, which powers the Vacheron Constantin Admiralty chronograph, and the Calibre 576, which powers the Breguet Nautical chronograph, are also modifications of the Calibre 1185.

The “Ice Blue Plate” Audemars Piguet Royal Oak self-winding chronograph is a boutique exclusive, limited to 100 pieces. Officially priced at RMB 470,000, it is considerably cheaper than the Ice Blues, which cost around $600,000. But just like the Ice Blues, which are not always available, this “Ice Blues AP”, which is limited to only 100 pieces, will probably be hard to find.

The new “Ice Blue Plate” Audemars Piguet Royal Oak self-winding chronograph is the same, but the difference is between a diamond-set bezel and a non-diamond-set bezel rather than hour markers. The “Ice Blue AP” is priced higher than the diamond-set Ice Blue Diamonds, although one is made of white gold and the other of platinum, the grams of diamonds used are considerably more. The diamond-set ‘Ice Blue AP’ (Ref. #26318BC.ZZ.1256BC.01) is officially priced at RMB 726,000 and is limited to just 10 pieces.
