Allround watches, or everyday watches as they are also called, are a staple in many men's watch collections. An everyday watch is characterized by the fact that it withstands more than an ordinary watch and can be used in several different contexts: it works just as well in a suit as on a beach during a holiday. It is simply a great watch to have in your watch collection or as a first watch.
Here are Fredman's Top 10 Best Everyday watches right now:
Rolex Datejust (pre-owned)
The Rolex Datejust is a classic and one of the world's most famous watch models. It is also a perfect everyday watch!
In addition to having the famous 'Rolex oyster case' which can withstand a lot, the Datejust also comes with a screw-down crown to protect against external elements. Datejust also has a water resistance of 100 meters which protects the watch in various weather conditions.
If you're looking for a watch that works just as well on your wrist during a fine dinner as it does when you're out playing golf, the Rolex Datejust is the watch for you. Our pre-owned Rolex Datejust men's watches come in sizes 36mm which is a good unisex watch and 41mm which is a classic size for a men's watch.
Spirit is one of the latest collections of the long-established company Longines, which debuted on the watch market in 2020. Longines, which was founded as early as 1832, has plenty of historical models and collections to draw inspiration from, which can be seen in the Spirit, which has a classic design that is nicely combined with timeless modern elements.
It´s in many ways a perfect everyday watch that Longines created in their Spirit collection. One could see Spirit as Longine's answer to Rolex's counterpart Datejust. The model has a water resistance of 100 meters which, together with a screw-down crown, creates a robust watch.
The options in the link options are also many where you will find steel links, textile straps, or leather straps. The movement in the Longines Spirit is automatic and chronometer-certified with a 64-hour power reserve. The collection comes in 40mm size which is an excellent size for an everyday watch as well as 42mm which is offered with chronograph or GMT function. In 2022, the collection has also been expanded to a 37 mm model that suits those who are looking for an everyday watch in a slightly smaller size, without losing anything in quality or function.
The U-2 is the smallest watch that the Milan-based company Unimatic makes, but that said, it's not a small watch at 38.5mm, but rather an optimal size for an everyday watch. The company Unimatic was founded in 2015 and has already achieved cult status among watch enthusiasts worldwide. The company is known for creating unique watches of high quality as well as many limited models that often sell out immediately upon their first release.
On this list, it is one of the more robust watches as it can technically be defined as a diver's watch with, among other things, 300 meters of water resistance, visible index markings and hands, and a screw-down crown.
The case, which is one of the wider ones on this list, houses an automatic movement (NH35A) that you can trust as it is a quality movement from Seiko. If you prefer slightly larger watches in width, this model is right for you. The dial is matte black and the watch comes with an accompanying stylish nylon textile strap. If you are looking for a watch that can withstand a lot but is a little more discreet and minimalist than a traditional diver's watch, the Unimatic U-2 will suit you!
Rado Coupole Classic is a collection of watches from the brand Rado, which is often classified as one of the more innovative watch companies in Switzerland. Rado is best known for using ceramics in their watches, but they also have steel collections that are nice everyday watches.

If you are looking for a modern everyday watch in a classic design, the Rado Coupole Classic is an excellent choice.
The Zodiak watch brand is best known for its diving watches and their pioneering history with many technical innovations, but they also have a collection with characteristics that characterize an everyday watch, the Zodiak Olympos.
The model has an interesting case with an oval shape that makes it stand out a little more than most other watch models. The 37mm size fits comfortably on the wrist without feeling too small when worn a little larger than the size suggests.
This particular model has a black dial, but in the collection, there are also variations with blue, beige, and gold dial. The watch has a polished crown that is signed with the famous Zodiak logo discreetly located at two o'clock. If you are looking for an everyday watch with a slightly more interesting shape that is vintage-inspired, the Zodiak Olympos Automatic could be the watch for you!
The King Seiko was one of the most anticipated models from the Japanese brand Seiko when the model made a comeback in early 2022. The distinctive design with distinctive band horns is easy to recognize from Seiko's historical model.
King Seiko first came on the market in 1965 as one of Seiko's more luxurious models. For some Seiko enthusiasts, this model could finally follow the cult watches Sarb033 and Sarb035 but with an updated movement with 70 hours of power reserve.
In the King Seiko collection, there are five models with black, red, brown, silver, and light gray dials. Today, King Seiko's vintage models are hard to find in good condition, and with this new collection you get an almost identical look to the historic models but in a new format.

Acrylic glass is less scratch-resistant than sapphire glass but does not risk shattering as easily as sapphire glass with hard hits.
This model is 42 mm, but for many, it feels a little smaller on the wrist as the dial makes room for a Tachymeter and chronograph function which balances the slightly larger case.
