Black is back—here are our top picks of the most fashionable monochromatic timepieces this season


We're fans of Montblanc’s 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date 41mm Stainless Steel and Rubber Watch, which features a 41mm stainless steel case with a durable black rubber strap. It contains the MB 24.17 movement calibre. The automatic movement underwent extensive trials under extreme conditions and is water resistant for 300 metres, meaning it is the first-ever certified diving watch for the brand. The base plate, meanwhile, is reminiscent of the glacial crystallisation in the arctic.

The elegant, minimalistic J12 Wanted De Chanel watch in 38mm is equipped with the Calibre 12.1 automatic movement. The Chanel logo, crafted in ceramic, lies at the heart of the dial and extends on to the matte black steel bezel. The watch brings a touch of sophistication both to daytime outfits and glamorous nights out. 


Rado's Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Diver is a certified diver watch that uses a monobloc case, both for structural stability and to eliminate the possibility of dust or moisture affecting the internal movement. The hands have been enhanced with Super-LumiNova for improved visibility in low-light surroundings. There are six models you can choose from, but the black design is our favourite.

Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton's 41mm Steel Escale Spin Time watch features a ruthenium sunray dial, a black alligator strap, and 12 different rotating cubes displayed with AM and PM numerals that change every hour. It also has a bezel, crown and horns in polished steel, and comes with a satin-finished black case with PVD coating. Finally, it has a 40-hour power reserve and is water-resistant for up to 30 metres.
