A flashback into 2020. This year has certainly been an interesting and eventful year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many brands have had to cancel their much-awaited unveiling events. Others simply made their new creations available for purchase online.
In either case, we are honored to unveil the 2020’s top trending watches for men. If you’re a man who knows your way around a classy watch, these top-notch timepieces are sure to tickle your fancy.
1. Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36
When horological experts often talk about luxury watches, they probably had Rolex’s Oyster Perpetual 36 on the mind. It’s the classiest of the classics. The most luxurious of them all – the market’s most prominent marque.
It was quietly unveiled a couple of months ago, just in time for holiday shopping. Sporting a stainless steel construction with a tangerine dial, the Oyster Perpetual 36 comes with an eye-watering price tag too, making it a great snag for seasoned collectors of Rolex marques.

Designed for men looking for a mid-priced luxury watch that stands out from the crowd, the Bell & Ross BR03-92 Nightlum is something of beauty. This is especially true if you have a thing for square watches.
Not surprisingly, the BR03-92 Nightlum borrows a big leaf from the aviation space. That’s because most engineers and designers at the company have some background in the aviation industry. It has no fancy bells & whistles, though. It boasts a hard-wearing leather strap and a sapphire crystal dial.
3. Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Chronograph Skeleton Automatic

It combines innovative movement and an engrossing design. Talk about watchmaking at its best!

Baume’s more-is-less mindset is one you’ll see in all of its watches. And the Small Seconds is one of the 2020’s hottest watches for men. It was designed with both sustainability and luxury in mind. Don’t let that fool you, though; this is a mini monster that can achieve more than 2,000 permutations.

This 38mm semi-luxury watch is the reason why most men look fabulous out there. The brand’s hottest reissue series is back with a bang in 2020. Despite costing less than $250, the Reissue Falcon Eye boasts some of the most notable bells and whistles often found in high-end Rolex masterpieces. A classy Rolex with a price tag you can stomach — where can I sign up?
