    Men can wear steel watches and silver watches but not gold or silk because that is for women only. Commented Mar 18, 2017 at 11:17

1 Answer 1


This was declared halal at Darul Ifta:

Steel chain is not jewellery; therefore using steel chain watch is allowed.

Islam Q&A, IslamWeb, Qibla.com (from IslamQA.org), and FatwaIslam do not disagree.

Problems that can arise are: (a) imitating women (Islam Q&A) for certain styles of watches, and (b) wearing gold watches (Islam Q&A).
