If a watch is under $300, they surely have to be cheap, right? Wrong!

I’ve owned at least one watch from each of these brands, ranging from $100 to $300, and can tell you that each are still in tip-top-shape. Having a selection of affordable watches helps me coordinate outfits and gives me more options on how I want to dress up my look. Not to mention confidence. Best part is I didn’t spend a lot of money. Over time I may have collectively spent a few thousand, however this was over a decade. Well worth the investment.

For those not looking for the affordable watch category, and are more of the collector type, stay tuned for my next feature–which will feature my favorite luxury watches from Rolex, Omega, and more.
