By now, you probably know how much we appreciate a stylish watch.
They’re the perfect accessory: The ideal balance between function and fashion. Men can use them to immediately turn heads with a bold watch or add subtle flair to an already top-notch outfit—the options are endless.
Whether you’re a first-time buyer or a long-time watch lover, you’ve likely asked yourself:
“Can I find affordable, high-quality watches?”
Spoiler alert: You can totally find great watches at lower price points—our list below proves it! But before we dive into our six favorite affordable watches, let’s dive further into the question at hand.
Can You Really Find Stylish, Affordable Watches?
We believe that a stylish watch is a must-have, whether you’re adding the finishing touches to a bespoke suit look or elevating an everyday casual outfit.
One of the best parts about men’s watches is the wide range of price points. You can spend as little as $100 (which is what this article is all about) or as much as $100,000—there’s a watch out there for every budget!
Here’s where things can get muddy, though: Price is not a direct indicator of quality. A good rule of thumb is that you get what you pay for, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find stylish watches to suit a smaller budget. Many big-name watch brands will pressure you to buy their expensive flagship watches, which might make a great watch—but not everyone can afford to spend thousands of dollars on a timepiece.
The best way to decide whether a watch is right for you is to ignore the price tag and examine the watch yourself.
Is it a style you like? Does it have the right complications? Does it suit the look you’re trying to create?
If a watch hits on all the points you’re looking for and it falls into your budget, you’ve got a keeper.
Our Favorite Men’s Watches Under $100
Let’s get to it—our six favorite men’s watches for under $100.
But first, let’s touch on the criteria for our list.
The whole basis of our article!
All of the watches included in our list come in at under $100. Some of our options come in at $95, while others are priced at $85.
