Wearing a bright, colorful, or just plain flashy timepiece can be entertaining, but sometimes something a little more subtle will pull a look together perfectly. DLC or ion-plated black watches are by no means something new, and looking at the number of new models that came out recently, the trend isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

3 Tissot PRS 516 Chronograph Watch



A must-have black watch for car enthusiasts, this Tissot PRS 516 series member pairs classic chronograph looks with decidedly modern design touches. The latter includes not only a PVD-coated stainless steel case, but also a ceramic bezel and carbon fiber dial. This particular variant has a Swiss quartz movement. However, if you feel like splurging, consider the automatic version.

4 Seiko SNE331 Core Black and Beige Solar Watch



The Seiko SNE331 Core has a military-inspired design that combines a 43-millimeter black stainless steel case and dial with contrasting markers. The nylon band matches the color of the timepiece's markers to complete the utilitarian vibe of the timepiece.

5 Hamilton Khaki Field Black Watch



This black PVD-finished variant of Hamilton's Khaki Field range has a much different vibe than the stainless steel one. A comfortable 40-millimeter case size and bold red seconds hand make this Swiss quartz timepiece a fine choice for an all-black look that isn't completely under the radar.

6 Tag Heuer Monza Reissue Black Watch
Tag Heuer



This Tag Heuer is a spot-on remake of a '70s classic. The brand has always done a fine job of recreating their vintage watches using modern materials and case sizes, and the Monza is no exception. Using a titanium carbide coating over a solid grade-5 titanium case gives the timepiece a similar look to its '70s predecessor, without the inherent risk of scratching through to bare metal that came with older PVD-coated steel watches.

7 Zodiac Astrographic Black Watch



The Astrographic pays homage to a Zodiac watch collection with the same name, which launched almost half a century ago. Inspired by space exploration, the watch features a sleek, barrel-shaped case and an automatic movement. This all-black watch is available in only 82 pieces, so it's highly collectible.

8 Tissot T-Touch Solar Watch



The Tissot T-Touch Solar, as its name suggests, is powered by light, so you don't need to worry about battery replacements. The watch is also quite a looker in the metal, sporting a lightweight titanium case and a carbon fiber dial with an embedded negative digital display.

Being a T-Touch product family member, the watch has a host of handy features that can be accessed via a tap on its sapphire crystal. They include a built-in compass, an altimeter, and a barometer, among others.

9 Casio G-Shock G-Steel GSTS110BD-1B Watch



This G-Steel variant is one of the stealthiest-looking members of the Casio G-Shock family today. It has a solar-powered movement with a rich set of complications, double LED lighting, and a comfy stainless steel band. Once fully charged, the watch can spend up to 19 months away from a light source.

10 Seiko Prospex Dive Watch in Black



Seiko remains an industry leader when it comes to dive watches at a reasonable budget. This seriously chunky Prospex model is 44 millimeters in diameter, so it wears a tad big, but if you can handle the size, it's a solid option that you can rock just about anywhere.

11 Citizen Navihawk Black Watch



The solar-powered Citizen Navihawk is handily one of the most feature-rich offerings in its price range. Its complications include an atomic clock synchronization for incredible accuracy, support for multiple time zones, a sophisticated chronograph, and a perpetual calendar, among others.

With a 46-millimeter case (without the crowns), this black watch isn't exactly subtle, but it wears comfortably on a rubber strap.
