We're not sure exactly how many times we've said it, but we're sure it's a lot: a good watch goes a long way. As men, we're not afforded a whole lot of options when it comes to accessories, especially casual ones. You can't exactly spice up your sweater with a pair of cuff links or a tie bar. Short of other forms of jewelry, which we're not crazy about, you're pretty much left with the watch.
Luckily, watches are awesome and functional. They add a bit of class to your ensemble as well – pulling out your smartphone to know what time it is may get you the information, but it definitely doesn't win you the points you get from having a nice piece of metal on your wrist.
We want to help out by offering up a chance for one lucky reader to win this bad ass sports watch from Orient.
This model is what Orient refers to as a “disk watch.” Instead of having a traditional hand system, the watch keeps time with a rotating disc. You can see the hour marker is a nice, thick triangle, but because of the nature of the disc movement, the hour indicator actually changes color depending on the time of day. It goes from white, to half-white and orange, to full orange, and back around again. Pretty neat.
Flip the watch over for show and tell and the transparent back gives you a view of the interior workings of the timekeeper, which is both intricate and awesome as you watch the balance wheel spin around.
What's even greater about this watch we want to give you is that this minimalist modern design is casual enough to be worn at the sports bar while watching the game, but elegant enough to be worn with your favorite suit. It's got a beautiful case with a nice finish for that wow factor, but still features a sporty and functional face design. It's a go anywhere watch so you've got one less thing to think about when flying out the door.
But what if you're an unlucky guy? You enter tons of contests, but never seem to win anything? Relax, we've got you covered too.
