A Collected Man will be closed from the 21st of December, to the 6th of January. All order placed during this time, will be dispatched upon our return. Please accept our best wishes for the festive season.


The dress watch has a special place in any gentleman’s collection, yet it is often ignored or under-appreciated. That being said, there is a certain quiet confidence when one wears, a timepiece both steeped in tradition, but equally the embodiment of horological discretion.

Even within the seemingly limited category of dress watches, a large diversity of designs can be found and appreciated, from original lugs to beautifully textured dials. What is not immediately obvious is far more interesting, be it a champlevé enameled logo or something as simple as the effect of having elongated index markers. The dress watch certainly is a testament to, and a lesson in, subtle expression and confidence.
