Solo de Cartier, The best dressing watch
When it comes to selecting a standout dress watch it's hard to beat
Cartier. Since the brand was founded in 1847 it has been worn by an impressive roster of uniquely stylish men - including Muhammad Ali, Andy Warhol and the impressively bearded King Edward VII - but the French horologist's designs are anything but old-timey.
We're particularly fond of this black tie-ready Ronde Solo - based around a solid Cartier calibre 115A quartz movement, the talking points are the classic monochrome numerals, striking blue hands and an elegant sapphire-topped winding mechanism.
