The New Rules of Men's Wristwear: Layering Your Timepiece with Jewelry

A timepiece might be the easiest way for a gentleman to make a style statement, but why stop there? Lately we're loving the layered effect of juxtaposing wristwear with bracelets and rings in a range of luxe materials. From a low-key athletic look to a sleek, modern collection, we've curated an unexpected selection of men's jewelry to sport alongside your watch, for every style and occasion.

The Artist

The design-focused gent might choose to pair his vintage piece with a well-curated selection of objets d’art—like this exquisite architectural bracelet from Cartier, or a soft green silk, diamond, and gold bracelet from up-and-comer Luis Morais.
