Watches are some of the most coveted items in a man's arsenal. The right watch can make or break an outfit. The right watch strap can change everything. Among all the watches a man can pick up, a tool watch is one of the most common. An airline pilot keeps us all safe with the best pilot watch in the skies. Explorers the world over discover the wonders of the world with the kind of stellar field watches that keep them on the right path. Military and civilian divers alike uncover long-lost ships and artifacts at the bottom of the oceans with the best dive watches on the market. And, of course, soldiers, cops, and firefighters wear some of the best tactical watches while keeping us safe. One of the unsung heroes of tool watches is the driving watch. And these are some of the best automotive-inspired watches you can find.

Driving as an inspiration
All it is good for is getting us from point A to point B. It takes us from home to work; then, we don't do it again until we get to run out of the office and go back home. But somehow, driving is as deep in the DNA of Americans as apple pie and rebellious tea dumping. Since Henry Ford created the Model T and we began taking drives to clear our heads or take in the sights of some of the most majestic road trips in America, the brands of America have created gear and apparel inspired by it.
