Most of the time, people assume that for them to actually look great with a watch, they have to save a lot of money to buy a luxury timepiece. There is no denying that luxury watches look really good, especially if you are looking at automatic watches from companies such as Rolex or Audemars Piguet. But, a stylish watch need not be expensive.

Today, I am going to talk about some inexpensive watches that do not compromise on style.

Hamilton Men’s Khaki

Although field watches were specifically designed for rugged or military use, the Hamilton Men’s Khaki field watch can certainly be used in formal events as well.

The watch has a simple analog interface, a brown leather strap with contrast stitching, has a sapphire glass to protect the main watch face and it also comes with automatic movement as well.

Its sapphire glass coupled with its 100-meter water-resistant certification means that it can also be submerged underwater and it should be sturdy enough against scratches.

Timex Weekender

Another simple yet stylish watch, the Timex Weekender is certainly a watch that every man can afford.

It uses a tan genuine leather strap and it has a quick-release functionality that can help you easily switch out the strap for a NATO strap if you want.

The watch may not come with an automatic watch movement, but it definitely comes with the company’s patented Indiglo technology that helps you tell the time even when you are in a dark environment.

Seiko 5 Sports


The Seiko 5 is a unique line of Seiko watches that is sturdy enough that you can use it on sports activities, but stylish enough so that you can also use it on casual and formal events.

That being said, it is an automatic watch with a sapphire glass that protects the main watch face. It comes with a durable black canvas strap which looks great. It comes with a black dial and a metallic steel case that protects the entire mechanism of the watch.

Because this watch is an automatic timepiece, you need not worry about power or battery at all. So long as you are wearing the watch regularly, there is really nothing to worry about in that department.

Another standout feature is that the watch’s crown is actually situated at 4’oclock. This means that people who accidentally touches the crown on a regular basis will be able to rejoice!

Fossil Machine Chronograph

There are some men that would prefer oversized chronograph watches over other types of watches and if you are on the same boat, then the Fossil Machine Chronograph watch will definitely not disappoint.

It has a black-on-black design with a gray watch face along with some white accents. It’s got 3 sub-dials for its chronograph feature and they also contain blue hands to separate it from the main watch dial.

Stuhrling Original Men’s Dive Watch

Dive watches have come a long way in that they are not only practical but also stylish as well.

The Stuhrling Original Men’s Dive Watch is a 44mm blue-toned dial watch that comes with a fully-adjustable metal watchband. Everything on the watch is easy to read and since it is a dive watch, you can easily submerge yourself underwater without worrying too much.

This classic timepiece certainly looks really well and can be used on many occasions.


Citizen Eco-Drive

Citizen’s Eco-Drive line of watches come in many different designs, but the one I will be talking about comes with a woven khaki canvas band for ultimate comfort and style.

This timepiece comes with sapphire crystal and can withstand water up to 100 meters. And, since it is an ‘eco-drive’, you will not have to worry about batteries ever again.
