4 recommended watch brands for men in their 30s
This time, we will introduce 4 recommended watches for men in their 30s.
Please check it out if you are looking for a second mechanical watch, as well as those who are purchasing for the first time.
First and foremost is Breitling.
Breitling is a Swiss watch manufacturer founded by Leon Breitling in 1884.
A pioneer in chronographs, he has worked on many pilot watches.
Old Navitimer Japan Edition Ref.A13324
The epitome of pilot watches
The company's model, which has supported many pilots by installing a rotating slide rule in the wristwatch, is now producing models suitable not only for the sky but also for "land" and "sea".
It is a brand that attracts attention with its rugged design derived from military, and is highly popular among men.
Here are some representative models from Breitling.
The first one is Navitimer.
Navitimer B01 Chronograph 43 Japan Edition
It is a representative model of Breitling and first appeared in 1952.
The main features are the chronograph and the meter attached to the bezel called a rotating slide rule.
Navitimer B01 Chronograph 43 Black MOP Japan Edition
The memory attached to the bezel is a rotating slide rule
Since the first generation, it has been equipped with three in-dials and a rotating slide rule, and that design continues today.
This rotary slide rule can be used for various measurements, so it was a must-have item for pilots until now.
The current model is equipped with the Breitling 01 manufacture movement, which boasts reliable accuracy and durability.
Some models have a skeleton on the back
There is also a 3-needle model, but the chronograph is still popular for the Navitimer, and there are many dial colors available, and there are several sizes available.
In addition, the design allows you to use it as a leather belt or bracelet, so you can use it according to the season and situation, so I think it will be a model that you can use for a long time.
There is also a D buckle type, so you can customize it to your liking.
As a budget range, it starts from about 500,000 yen, but depending on the year and model, it may be less than 400,000 yen.
Please try to find the combination that suits you.
The second one is Chronomat.
Chronomat 44MOP Japan Limited
Chronomat features a large case.
The basic size of the current product, whose design was changed in 2020, is 42mm, and before that, it has a case diameter of 44mm, which is slightly larger than a normal watch.
The 44mm case diameter is powerful even on the wrist
Chronomat B01 42
The new model has a case diameter of 42mm.
It is thick and has a very strong design, and is loved by many people.
Approximately 17mm, thickness of the best part
Among them, the most popular is the Roman index on the shell dial.
The shell dial uses MOP (mother-of-pearl), which is made from shells that produce pearls.
For that reason, the pattern is different one by one, so it is also a nice point that there is no exactly the same watch.
Chronomat 44 Black Roman MOP
It sells out quickly once it arrives, so be sure to check it out!
In addition, many models are equipped with 200m water resistance.
It is a perfect model for those looking for a watch that boasts high waterproof performance while equipped with a chronograph.
Chronomat is available from the 400,000 yen range as a budget range.
The new and popular shell dials will be a little more expensive, but even so, it will be an affordable price for the impact of 600,000 yen.
Most of the products can be paid in installments with interest-free shopping loans, so you can purchase them at a great price.
The third is Breitling's diver's watch series called Superocean.
Super Ocean Heritage II Ocean Conservancy
Breitling specializes in chronographs and pilot's watches, but it's no surprise that its sea watches are no exception.
The current Superocean adopts a design inspired by the original Superocean released in the 1950s, and the name is crowned with heritage (a word that means tradition, etc.).
Superocean Heritage B20 Automatic
The hands, bezel and bracelet are reminiscent of the original design
Of course, the functionality has been updated, and the bezel has been changed to a ceramic unidirectional rotating bezel, and the visibility of the hands and indexes has also been improved.
The straps are not only mesh bracelets, but also mesh-like rubber belts, making it easier to coordinate with your style.
Superocean Heritage B20 Automatic 42
A mesh-like rubber belt expands the range of coordination
In addition, there is also a model equipped with a chronograph in spite of the diver's watch in Super Ocean.
The design that combines the two sportiness is a good thing that other models don't have.
Superocean Heritage II Chronograph 44
The diver's chronograph is a combination that is not found in other brands
As a budget range for Super Ocean, it starts from about 300,000 yen.
Among Breitling, many models with three needles are in circulation, and the price is cheaper than the previous two.
If a chronograph is attached, it will be a guide from the 400,000 yen range.
If you are looking for a mesh type strap, this is especially recommended.
The next brand to introduce is Hublot.
big bang steel ceramic
Hublot is a Swiss manufacturer founded in 1980.
The founder, Carlo Crocco, is an Italian, so the quality of Swiss watches is fused with Italian taste, and it features a sporty and luxurious design.
Classic Fusion Chronograph Berluti Cold Gold
Collaboration with men's shoes maker Berluti full of European feeling
In addition, the brand name Hublot means a port window in French, and the screws on the bezel and outer circumference represent them.
In fact, it is the existence that sparked the rubber belt boom in wristwatches, and most of the representative models Big Bang and Classic Fusion are rubber belts.

Various rubber belts are available, including a blue rubber belt
Some models have a leather belt on the front and a rubber belt on the back, and there are many models that can be worn with a rubber belt regardless of the season or situation.
Classic Fusion Skullban
The surface is made of leather and the back is made of rubber, so you can use it without hesitation even in the summer.
In recent years, we have developed our own movement, Unico, and have shown our commitment not only to design, but also to the interior.

Cal.HUB1241 (Hublot movement)

A perfect match for casual style
Classic Fusion Chronograph Titanium
Excellent compatibility with jacket bread style
Both are based on a large size development, making it a model that will definitely give off an outstanding presence on your wrist.
Colors and designs tend to be flashy, so many people think it's a bit too much to match with business situations, but the classic fusion hand-wound model is thin, fits well on the sleeve, and has a subdued color. So I think that if you are a man in your 30s, you will have a strong sense of masculinity.
Classic Fusion Ultra Slim Black Shiny Dial
The 3-needle thin design makes it easy to wear even in the business scene.
In terms of budget, the entry model starts at around 600,000 yen, but the one with a chronograph starts at around 850,000 yen.
classic fusion ceramic blue
The entry model can be purchased for around 600,000 yen even if the case material is ceramic.
Classic Fusion Aero Chronograph Blackmagic
The type with a skeleton (aero) dial costs more than 1 million yen, but you can wear it with a power like no other.
Depending on the material and the design of the dial, it may exceed 1 million yen, so if you do not know how much the design you want is, please contact the store.
The third choice is Officine Panerai, also known as Panerai.
Officine Panerai is an Italian watch manufacturer founded in 1860.
Although the company was founded in Italy, the watch was manufactured in Switzerland, so the Swiss Made character is placed at 6 o'clock on the dial.
Originally, the company was only producing munitions, but after the war, it began manufacturing watches for the private sector, and is now widely known as a first-class watch brand.
Representative models include Luminor, Radiomir, and Submersible.
Luminor 1950 10DAYS GMT ACCIAIO
The Luminor series features a large, rounded case with a crown guard.
Radiomir features a thin lug called a wire lug and a cushion case.
Because it is a diving watch, the rotating bezel, index, and needle shape are characteristic.
In common with each model, there are many large case diameters in the lineup.
Many of them are also thick, so they are classified as so-called "deca thick watches".
However, in recent years, not only deca-thick watches, but also downsized models and thin models have been developed, so it can be worn by people with thin arms, and various designs that fit on the sleeve are good. It has become a brand that can meet the needs.
Luminor Due 3DAYS ACCIAIO TITANIO
By installing a micro rotor, it is very thin even though it is self-winding.
In addition, there are many types of belts, colors and designs of dials, so it can be said that it is a perfect item for men who like fashion.
Nylon straps in stylish colors are also available.
It is an excellent match for men in their 30s with a slightly relaxed office casual style, so I hope you can put it on your arm once.
In addition, Panerai is also good at models with long power reserves, and many models with very long springs are being developed.
The lineup includes not only 3 days (3 days) and 8 days (8 days), but also 10 days (10 days) maximum power reserve, so even those who only plan to wear it occasionally can rest assured.
Luminor 1950 10DAYS GMT
Amazing model with up to 10 days power reserve
As a budget range, you can choose an entry model from about 400,000 yen.
Chronographs and divers will cost more than 700,000 yen, so it is better to start by looking for the shape and then narrow down the features you want.
Last but not least is Cartier.
Cartier was founded in Paris, France in 1847.
Cartier is one of the world's top-level jewelry manufacturers, but it is also second to none when it comes to watches.
According to one theory, the world's first wristwatch was made by Cartier.
As a feature of Cartier, it is an elegant design derived from a jeweler.

This is the perfect brand for those looking for an elegant watch that can be worn on a daily basis.
The design is also popular with women, so it is perfect for dates with dress codes such as restaurants.

In addition to leather belts and bracelets, we also have a lineup of square watches such as the Santos series and Tank series, and one of the recommended points is that it is easy to choose from a variety of designs.
The square shape of the leather belt gives a smart impression

In recent years, we have also been focusing on movements, and there are many models that use in-house developed movements.
