The best summer watches for men to wear in 2022


Too many watches only do one thing: tell the time. So if you’re going to invest in a new piece, you deserve more than a portable clock. These modern, multifunctional, gimmicky classics all do double (or triple!) duty.

The accelerator

Formula 1 x Senna Special Edition

TAG Heuer


Named after Formula 1 legend Ayrton Senna, TAG Heuer’s special edition watch houses a tachymeter that measures speeds of up to 249 miles per hour. (You know, for corners in Monaco or, uh, Milwaukee.) Its sleek stainless steel case and calfskin strap make it practical for off-race scenarios, too.


The power station

Big Bang Original Blue Ceramic



This mechanical watch is made of hard-as-hell ceramic, which is lighter and more scratch resistant than stainless steel, so it will last. Under the hood, the Big Bang has an impressive 42-hour power reserve, which means less winding and more wear and tear…perhaps forever?


The timeless staple

Aviation Hack A-11



This lean and mean military watch rose to fame during WWII. Bulova updated it with a clean stainless steel case and brown nylon strap that’s destined to last another century. Pull the crown to activate its hack function, which allows you to stop the watch’s hour, minute and second hands at will to easily set the time.
