Men’s watches are not just about telling time; they’re expressions of sophistication, taste, and prestige. In the realm of men’s fashion, few accessories hold as much power to make a statement as a meticulously crafted timepiece. While many names are synonymous with luxury, such as Rolex and Cartier, it’s not always these household names that dominate the list of the world’s most expensive watches. We’re taking a closer look at a selection of opulent timepieces available at a surprising source: Costco.

Yes, you read that right – the store known for its bulk groceries and household goods, has a collection of Costco watches, offering a range that includes renowned brands like Montblanc and Versace. So, if you’re a connoisseur of fine watches, you’re about to embark on a journey through a list that combines luxury and affordability in a way you might not have expected.

But wait, you might be thinking, “Does Costco really offer watches of that caliber?” The answer: Yes. While Costco is often celebrated for its value-driven approach, it’s not stopping short of catering to the luxury market. From the sleek and refined designs of Montblanc watches to the bold and distinctive style of Versace watches, this bulk-store has curated a collection of Costco watches that cater to a variety of tastes and preferences.

There are a handful of things that every man should have in his closet or on his nightstand that he can turn to when he needs them the most. Dependable, durable, and comfortable. A leather jacket is the ultimate in elevated casual garments. A great pair of perfect-fitting jeans will keep you comfortable in any situation. And a great field watch will outlast any adventure you have in mind. The man also needs a solid pair of boots that can work as hard as him and a knife as dependable as he is. Luckily for us, Nicks Boots has teamed up with Buck Knives to bring us the perfect combination of the last two necessities.

Thanks to the dropping need for dressier footwear and the new explosion of the casual world, boots are the oldest new fad to take hold. Nicks Boots has an idea of how that will shape the boot market, and we got an opportunity to sit down with Shuyler Mowe, CEO of Nicks Boots, to talk about the collaboration and the future of boots.

Timex watches don’t usually cost $1,000, but their latest does, and you might actually want to buy it
A $1,000 Timex? You read that right
Giorgio Galli S2 Automatic 38mm Timex on wrist

The secret to success in a brand is identity. When you become known for something, you are never without a customer base that knows where to go to get your very specific identifier. For Timex, it has been a simple phrase that permeated our culture's collective memory. They "take a lick and keep on ticking." The rugged and durable reputation they gained from that phrase is one that became attractive to those who weren't sitting behind a desk but rather experiencing the world and protecting it. They have even become one of the go-to brands for tactical watches as well. But now, Timex watches are moving into a whole new world, luxury timepieces in the thousand-dollar range.

Timex Group's global creative director, Giorgio Galli, just dropped his newest addition to his self-named line for the watchmaker: A Swiss-made masterpiece called the S2. It takes the design of its predecessor, the S1, and takes it further into the luxurious market of other Swiss-made watches. While the S1 was already carrying the company's most expensive line at just under $500, the S2 doubles the price it is fetching with a price that is almost reaching a four-digit number. A first for a Timex watch. But will the world respond to their approach? Will the everyday man, the soldier, the lawman, the fireman, or the construction worker who wears Timex watches get a $ 1,000 watch? Will the luxury collector give it its due?

Everyone who knows watches knows about the MoonSwatch, the chronograph wristwatch collection from Swatch and Omega that has been seriously hard to find. Now they're back with another limited release that pays homage to tonight's blue moon: The "Mission to Neptune" MoonSwatch.

The MoonSwatches originally included 11 watches — all variations of the popular Omega Speedmaster watch, with a quartz movement, a fabric strap, and names that paid homage to celestial bodies — back when the collection debuted in early 2022. Since then, there have been more releases of these watches featuring the brand's Moonshine gold. And now it's Neptune's turn.
