Jewellery Arabia will be held this year from 19th – 23rd November at the Bahrain Exhibition and Conference Centre. The event is the largest and most prestigious jewellery exhibition in the Middle East. Held under the patronage of His Royal Highness Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Bahrain, Jewellery Arabia consistently attracts over 550 exhibitors from 30 nations; whose exhibits range from incredible finished jewellery to luxury timepieces, to precious stones of every size, shape and cut. To commemorate Jewellery Arabia 2019 we are reviewing some of our favourite luxury watches for men, many of which are available to buy at the exhibition. The old saying “you are what you wear” is still true. It is not just shoes which make the man, it’s also his watch. A man’s watch is far more than just a way of keeping track of the time – a well-chosen timepiece is an accent for his aesthetic. Needless to say, selecting just 13 watches from a choice of many hundreds is a subjective process and opinions will differ about our selection. However, our review team have done their best – based on their own prejudices of course – and believe all of these luxury men’s watches are exceptional from a functional and material perspective, while also looking impressive – sometimes, even artistic.
