I had the same problem last year when I was trying to find my husband a birthday present! I ended up with something fairly simple from fossil, but it still has a couple wierd dials on it. They don’t carry it anymore but here’s a nice plainer one:

What is your budget?

I bought my husband a clean, classic Gucci watch about a year ago and he loves it. I am looking at a Burberry watch right now that is also great and very classic.

What’s your budget? Movado makes super super plain ones with literally a plain face and just a dot at the 12:00 point.

Here‘s an example of a Movado at Nordie’s.

don’t even get me started on watches.  my dh loves watches.

are you looking for one?

ETA:  i guess you are.  my dh suggests going to this site.  they have amazing watches.  they use the same movements as omega $$ but for a much more reasonable price.  he has one and is very impressed with it.

@Treejewel19:  Ooooh! I love Burberry watches! That’s what I bought my Darling Husband for his wedding present. (His is rectangular and absolutely gorgeous, but it has a chronograph, something the OP does not want.)

There are plenty of classic mens watches that are simple…but what is your budget?

@mspartridge:  I’d recommend Burberry, Movado or Gucci (all under $2K). Macy’s typically has great sales too and they carry these brands.

@Brielle:  Good to know! I am probably going to get him one for his birthday….he is dying for another fancy watch. 😛

Why not buy him a nice watch, but isn’t so expensive if you say it’ll be wasted on him. Tissot, Citizen, Movado, Victorinox, all make simple classic watches for under 1k. Try looking at http://www.tourneau.com
