Luxury watches to wear with a suit

When it comes to menswear, there’s nothing more timeless than a well-tailored suit. At Roseberry Tailoring, we believe in dressing confidently and carefully, which goes beyond our bespoke suits. Your shirt, tie, shoes and belt are all essential details which require thought. However, the most important detail sits on your wrist.

Black Suit

A classic black suit can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. A sure-fire way to make a statement is by pairing it with a silver and black dress watch. However, don’t be afraid to break the rules. Although the Rolex Submariner is classed as a sports watch, it’s iconic 1965 print ad depicted it worn with a black dinner suit rather than a wetsuit.

Navy Suit

The second most popular suit choice is navy, which can be paired with similar watches to classic black suit. Think black and silver to channel your inner James Bond with an Omega Seamaster or add some understated detail with an ocean blue dial. The watch you choose will also depend on the formality of the event you’re attending. Keep in mind that metal bands are considered less formal.

Grey Suit

Although the shade of your suit can dictate which watch will be best suited, a classic light brown or black leather strap is a safe bet, as long as your belt and shoes are matching.

Brown or Tan Suit

Like grey, brown and tan suits come in a variety of shades, so there’s no ‘one watch fits all’. A gold face with a rich brown strap can complement most suits in this colour scheme for a timeless look

The best timepieces to invest in are simple, elegant and versatile. If you’re interested in the investment potential of your next watch, check out this in-depth guide to the Art of Luxury Watchmaking by ROX.
