We know, we know. Your smartphone keeps time. But there’s a reason wristwatches aren’t obsolete — slapping a cumbersome rectangle to your wrist doesn’t add style, class, or sophistication to your look. Wearing the right timepiece does. And while some watches can cost as much as a BMW, you can find great deals that fit into a tight budget. To prove it, we spoke with Stephen Pulvirent from watch website Hodinkee about five cool men’s watches that all cost less than $200.
Timex for J. Crew Vintage Field Army Watch ($98)
Based on an iconic 1940s military style, Timex and J. Crew have tag teamed to create an affordable, stylish and well crafted watch with a stainless steel case, quartz analog movement and luminescent hands. Not into the strap? Replace it with any 18mm strap you can get your hands on.
If you’re interested in the real deal, Pulvirent recommends checking out eBay for genuine, vintage, military watches in the same price range.
