Fossil has embraced smart watches, which combine fitness-tracker elements with wireless smartphone connectivity and more traditional watch features with its Q line, offering both digital watches and hybrids with traditional hands and faces. Styles range from crystal-encrusted rose gold to very traditional steel-case, steel-band models.

Two of Citizen's watches that are turning heads in incentive channels are the lightweight Promaster Altichron (ideal for adventurous recipients) and the new Drive from Citizen collection, a great fit for everyday wear.

Among the most interesting of the new watch lines gaining traction in the incentive market are Bulova's Rubaiyat collection and the groundbreaking CURV line of curved chronographs. 

Seiko has also been innovating. Take the Astron, said to be the world's first analog, solar-powered watch that receives GPS satellite signals and adjusts to the precise local time anywhere on Earth.
