I know that in Islam, men cannot wear gold and silk. But I want to not know that can men wear steel watches ?

    Men can wear steel watches and silver watches but not gold or silk because that is for women only. – Muslim_1234 Mar 18 '17 at 11:17

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).
