Widely regarded as one of the most versatile and visually appealing watches in its prices range ($1,300-$2,900, depending on particular model selected), the Formula 1 line is a frontrunner when it comes to everyday black watches for men. It delivers excellent value for money, and one of the sportiest feels and looks of any watch on this list.

Retaining the iconic square casing and large screws on the front panel, the watch is incredibly slim, sleek, and scratch resistant. Additionally, due to the nature of ceramics, the color is 100% unalterable; it will never fade or shift. At around $1,700 retail, this watch does a good job balancing cost with luxury.
Blancpain Fifth Fathoms Bathyscaphe
No list detailing the best black watches for men would be complete without one luxury addition, and so we thought we would throw in the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe just to tantalize. Jacques Cousteau wore a watch from this very same line in his most famous film, “Silent World”. The new case design, ceramic bezel, gorgeous dial facing, and slightly luminous markings combine to create one of the most impressive lines of dive watches available under $10,000.
