Less Than $2,000 Men’s Casual Watches We Love
Casual watches for under $2,000 that reached “iconic” status are hard to come by. This Omega Seamaster is one of the rare exceptions.
This timepiece has been beloved by professional divers, sailors and watch enthusiasts since its creation in 1948. Crafted entirely stainless steel, the Swiss-quartz watch features a polished raised bezel that embraces a clean white dial.
Graceful Dauphin-style hands point to silver-tone triangular hour and stick minute markers, as well as a date window at 3 o’clock. The dial is protected by scratch-proof sapphire crystal and the chain bracelet closes with a fold-over clasp style.
Water resistant to 150 feet, this model isn’t the best for deep sea dives. Still, it’s a beautiful piece that marks you with great style, whether you’re at the office or hanging out with your buddies.
Lovers of complications will be intrigued by this handsome automatic self-winding timepiece.
The watch features a round dial that sports three textured sub-dials with chronograph function. Large white Arabic numerals – which, unusually, mark the minutes, not the hour – gleam against the black dial.
Although the dial is visually busy, your eyes will be easily drawn to the rectangular date window at 6 o’clock.
The matte calfskin leather bracelet offers a refined look with white contrast stitching and a buckle clasp. Water resistant to 660 feet.
Ferragamo does sporty elegance with incomparable style.
In fact, this timepiece is so stylish it’s almost difficult to believe that it’s a functioning divers watch. But it is. Water-resistant to 660 feet, the watch sports a Gacino-shaped unidirectional aluminum bezel and luminous white hands and hour markers that are easy to read, even underwater.
On dry land, the watch will turn heads when people catch sight of its navy blue, partially-textured dial, elegantly trimmed in rose-gold.
The attractive two-tone stainless steel bracelet is also certain to look handsome on the wrist. Powered by Ronda 715 Swiss Quartz movement, this watch is built to last.
Oh yes – even a casual watch can be sexy.
This TAG Heuer chronograph proves it. The heft of its polished stainless steel bezel offers all-masculine allure whose silver tone beautifully sets off the jet-black dial. The watch face is gorgeous too with guilloche sub-dials, luminous hands and indices, and a date window at 12 o’clock.
The chronograph function features a seconds hand, a 30-minute counter and a dial that counts 1/10th of a second, as well as the hour.
Suitable for divers, the Swiss quartz watch is water resistant to 984 feet and the bezel is unidirectional rotating.
The strap is made of durable, textured black rubber and closes easily with a push button deployment clasp.
Burberry offers up a casual chronograph watch that is both stylish and discreet.
It features a brushed stainless steel beveled case and round cappuccino-colored dial with three sub-dials. Chocolate-brown Arabic numerals alternate with stick hour indices, and minute markers are both in numerals and stick as well.
The hour and minute hands are squelette-style with cream accents and small circular date window is featured at 4 o’clock.
A deep brown leather strap with contrast cream-colored stitching finishes the fashionable look.
