The 10 Best Hugo Boss Watches for Men

German fashion house Hugo Boss is one of the most respected male fashion brands of our time. The best Hugo Boss watches for men combine eye-catching designs with durability, quality and a splash of German functionality.

Founded in 1923 in Metzingen, Germany, by its namesake Hugo Boss, the brand initially created ready-to-wear men’s fashion. The Second World War saw the company instead produce military and governmental uniforms.

Soon after Hugo Boss’s death in 1948, the brand refocused on men’s fashion, watches, fragrance, and accessories. Their innovative watch collection ranges from sports, casual and formal wear timepieces.

Our Top 10 Hugo Boss Watches for Men

The best Hugo Boss watches for men offer striking designs, quality craftsmanship and are feature-rich. Here are 10 jaw-dropping Hugo Boss timepieces to consider.

1. BOSS Distinction Brown Leather Strap Watch

BOSS Distinction Brown Leather Strap Watch

Review

Classic, clean-cut, and traditionally masculine, this striking timepiece balances casual style and professional elegance perfectly.

The silver-tone, brushed stainless steel dial and case sit at an impressive 42 mm in size, making this a reasonably substantial watch. The watch hands and markers stand out thanks to their subtle shine.

The 12 o’clock position is marked by a Roman numeral, and the rest of the markers on this watch are straight steel bars. There is a white-faced date aperture at 6’oclock with black numbering. Additionally, 5-minute intervals are displayed close to the steel hour bars.

The chunky brown crocodile-effect leather strap contrasts nicely with the silver dial and case. It has discreet stitching along both sides, which adds to the quality feel.

Durable, water resistance to 30 meters (3 ATM), and scratch-resistant, this watch will carry you from day to night with ease. This is a traditional, masculine watch that is both reliable and attractive.

2. HUGO Exist Leather-Strap Watch

HUGO Exist Leather-Strap Watch

Review

If you are looking for a sleek, day-to-day watch that can really keep up with the rigours of your life while looking good, this is the watch for you.

Slim and durable with a monochromatic colour scheme, the look is lifted by flashes of red on the interior dials and the 6 o’clock marker for a unique and striking look.

Noted as “a minimalist take on the multi-functional watch”, it has a matt black dial and steel watch hands and markers on the primary and tertiary dials. 3 chronograph dials display the day, date and hours.

The black leather strap is high-quality but straightforward. It really finishes the look of the watch, providing a cohesive aesthetic that is both simple, sporty and traditionally masculine.

Water-resistant to 30 meters (3 ATM) and incredibly tough, this is an ideal day-to-night watch that is elegant enough for both formal events and casual wear.

3. BOSS Champion Chronograph Watch

BOSS Champion Chronograph Watch

Review

With a striking retro style packed with features, this multi-functional watch is durable enough to keep up with you no matter where you go.

The chunky, 44mm watch case is made of stainless steel, and the dial face is black with an eye-catching iridescent sheen. Interior dials are also black and ringed by steel to give the face an intricate aesthetic.

The hands and hour markers are all presented in silver. There is a date aperture just after 4’oclock that has a black face and white numbering.
A built-in tachymeter displayed around the bezel is a functional addition.

The black leather strap is padded and perforated, adding to the classic ‘sports watch’ aesthetic. It also makes the watch incredibly durable and comfortable to wear.

It is water-resistant up to 100 meters (10 ATM). Although this doesn’t mean you should go scuba diving with it, this watch should stand up well if you plan to have a swim.

44.0mm

4. BOSS Champion Stainless-Steel Watch

BOSS Champion Stainless-Steel Watch

Review

Simple yet functional, this classic stainless steel timepiece is pretty much the epitome of a watch designed for both fashion and function.

The contrast of the steel 44mm case, black sunray-brushed dial, and carnation gold edges, hands, and the crown really elevate this watch to elite status. 3 chronograph dials display the day, date and hours.

A date aperture just after 4’oclock has a black face, white numbering, and a gold surround. A built-in tachymeter displayed around the bezel is a useful addition.

The bracelet’s steel and gold-lined links make this piece feel a little more dressy than just plain steel. As such, it can be carried from day to night reasonably smoothly, though it is not particularly understated.

Water-resistant to 100 meters means this watch is prepared for almost any situation. I feel it’s equally wearable day or night, dressy or casual.

5. BOSS Legacy Stainless-Steel Watch

BOSS Legacy Stainless-Steel Watch

Review

This jaw-dropping stainless-steel timepiece has a stunning textured bezel and crown that instantly elevates this watch from casual to dressy. The black dial is finished with sunray brushing and easy-to-read numbers.

The hands and numerals are presented in crisp white and contrasting nickel colour. A single internal dial displays seconds and has an eye-catching circular pattern.

A discreet date aperture is located at 3’oclock; it has a black date, white numbering and a matching nickel coloured surround. The shining 3-link stainless steel strap is weight, well made and looks expensive.

This watch is water-resistant to 50 metres, looks durable and feels weighty. I would say this is the ideal watch to wear for any occasion, casual or formal.

6. HUGO Leap Black Leather Strap Watch 

HUGO Leap Black Leather Strap Watch

Review

With an oversized blue face and hands, this multi-functional watch will own your wrist. The 45mm stainless steel case dominates the chunky, black leather strap, and, in all honesty, that is all part of the unique appeal of this beauty.

The blue face seems to almost sparkle, and it had a striking textured effed that catches the eye. The thick, blocky hands and markers stand out perfectly thanks to their brushed nickel colouring and white inners.

This watch has 3 chronograph dials that display the day, date and hours. The date and hours dials have an eye-catching circular pattern, while the retro-looking day dial looks like it came out of my uncles 1978 Vauxhall Viva (I love it!).

Precision-crafted and water-resistant to 30 meters, this watch is perfectly suited to day-to-day wear in professional and casual settings.

7. HUGO Chase Knurling-Dial Watch

HUGO Chase Knurling-Dial Watch

Review

An inventive and eye-catching approach to the multi-functional watch that is so favoured by Hugo Boss, this dial watch gives off an air of practical strength and reliability.

The knurling pattern on the black dial gives the face of this watch an unexpected texture that feels like a supercar’s interior. The thick-set indexes and hands stand out against this surface while a few red splashes brighten up the overall look.

This watch has 3 chronograph dials that display the day, date and hours. The date and hours dials have an eye-catching circular pattern. The 46mm steel case itself is large but nicely curved, giving this piece a classic look with a large grooved crown and 2 additional buttons on either side.

The matt black leather strap is embossed with the ‘HUGO BOSS’ logo and looks chinky and well-made. Water-resistant to 30m and packed with features, this is an excellent everyday watch.

8. BOSS Globetrotter Stainless-Steel Watch

BOSS Globetrotter Stainless-Steel Watch

Review

Classic in style with a timeless design, this 46mm chronograph watch will sit confidently on your wrist, making itself known every time it catches the light.

The chunky steel watch case and linked bracelet give this sports-style timepiece a bold and sturdy feel. This is an incredibly tough timepiece that will stand up to knocks, bumps, scratches, splashes, and even laps in the pool (water-resistant to 100m).

The blue, multi-functional dial face has a rotating reflector ring and flashes of red on the ring, minute hand, and outer buttons. This watch has 2 chronograph dials that monitor and display seconds and minutes.

An easy to read date aperture with a black face and white numbering is located at 9 o’clock. On the right, the crown is inset with tall shoulders and has 2 feature buttons, one on either side. The date selector is located o the upper left and has an eye-catching red ring.

The overall result is a watch that has a fantastic 1980s sports vibe. Perhaps a little too chunky and complex for evening wear, this timepiece is perfect for work and casual outings. This is the epitome of a traditionally masculine watch.

9. HUGO Invent Blue-Plated Watch

HUGO Invent Blue-Plated Watch

Review

Modern, sleek, and very much in keeping with the rough and ready ‘wanderlust’ image, this blue-plated and brown leather watch is ideal for keeping things casual.

The knurled texture of the blue face stands out from the rest of the 46mm case. When the light catches this watch, the face almost shimmers, but you’ll never lose time in the shine.

The hands are blue at the base and tipped in white, and stand out brilliantly. The hour indexes themselves are more of a gunmetal grey and not so easy to real, in my opinion. The large etched crown on the right is a nice feature.

The brown leather strap is somewhat rough and rustic looking, but this suits the watch itself. The ‘HUGO BOSS’ logo emblazoned along the strap adds the final touch to the whole piece.

Tough, comfortable, and water-resistant to 30 meters (3 ATM), this watch is ideal for daywear and casual evenings out and about.

10. HUGO Act Matte-Grey-Plated Watch

HUGO Act Matte-Grey-Plated Watch

Review

Urban and utilitarian in looks, this chunky timepiece looks straight out of an 80s sci-fi movie. This is just the kind of watch Snake Plissken would wear in Escape From New York if he was not lumbered with that huge digital monstrosity.

The chunky, silicone strap is durable and comfortable around the wrist. 

The grey-plated stainless steel watch case is fairly chunky at 44 mm but discreet enough to not scream at you. The city names engraved on the bezel is a cool touch.

The black watch face itself is brightened by white indexes and flashes of that signature ‘Hugo Boss’ red, which can be seen on so many of their pieces. The hour hand is bright red with a white centre, and the hour hand is grey with a white centre.

The result is an understated but undeniably attractive watch which you can take pretty much anywhere. Water-resistant to 30m, this is the ideal watch for those who enjoy sports, hiking, camping or spend lots of time in the gym.
