Your phone is thin. Your laptop or tablet is thin. So why not your watch? The Tag Heuer Carrera CH 80 Chronograph Watch fits the bill, boasting a high-tech Calibre CH 80 movement that offers an 80-hour power reserve yet measures only 6.5mm thick. On the outside, you'll find a traditional chronograph face with a minutes counter at 3 o'clock, an hours counter at 9, and a small seconds at 6, a polished steel case with faceted lugs, a racing-inspired perforated calfskin strap with red lining, and, of course, a sapphire crystal case back so you can admire the engineering.
With military-influenced styling and a heritage that draws from the pioneers who once explored the far north on the backs of dog sleds, the Tudor Heritage Ranger Watch has a rugged, simple beauty that's at its best on the trail. Made with a 41-millimeter brushed stainless steel case and a satin finish, it sports a matte black face with luminous indices and numerals at 12, three, six, and nine. With four available bracelets, you can choose between a light or dark brown leather strap, a stainless steel bracelet, or a fabric strap, each featuring satin finished details that complement the watch.
If you're the kind of guy who regularly finds himself around the water — whether you dive for recreation, you work full time on a boat, or you just spend every weekend you can on the beach — then you need to check out the Blancpain Bathyscaphe Fifty Fathoms Watch. Made for the kind of guy who can't avoid getting wet, but would still like a watch that doesn't look out of place on dry land, it features a brushed black ceramic case, a black dial, and a minimalist face with luminous markings instead of numerals. Inside it features a self-winding movement that vibrates 36,000 times an hour, but still sports water resistance down to 300 meters.
