Less Than $1,000 Casual Men’s Watches We Love
This Raymond Weil quartz watch manages to pull off being seriously sporty and seriously elegant in equal measures.
The polished silver-tone analog timepiece sports a soot-black square dial with three chronograph subdials, a tachymeter and prominent date window at 12 o’clock.
Large silver-tone Arabic numerals and silver-tone hands with bright red accent marks contrast nicely with the dark dial.
The sophisticated look is tempered by the watch’s molded rubber band and fold-over clasp closure.
Water resistant up to 165 feet, this watch can be worn for short recreational swims.
Nobody does restraint like Movado, and this Swiss quartz watch is no exception.
This stainless steel timepiece has a strikingly understated style. Its unidirectional bezel is beautifully spare, marking time only in 5-minute increments from the 3 o’clock position.
Likewise, the black dial is simply adorned by discreet minute markers, luminous stick hour markers, a date window, and the signature Movado dot, in silver-tone, at the 12 o’clock position.
Overall, the watch exudes a casual sophistication that works in a range of settings, from a day in the office to a night on the town. As it’s water resistant up to 600 feet, it’s even good for most water sports, except for diving.
For men seeking a casual watch with a distinctive look, this automatic watch by Hamilton may suit.
The unusual mesh-style black skeleton dial will certainly prove intriguing to others, but only the wearer – or a true watch lover – is likely to notice the subtle minute markers set around the dial’s inner ring.
The wearer may also take secret pleasure in the skeleton watch case back.
On the dial, the Arabic numerals and stick hour markers are luminous, as are the tapered hour and minute hands. The entire face is well protected by a scratch resistant sapphire crystal.
A caramel-brown leather band adds traditional style to this Swiss-made, unique timepiece.
This multi-function watch by Tissot is an excellent timepiece for men who rock an athletic style.
Both analog and digital, the watch is set in a 45mm titanium round case and has a black fixed bezel of PVD-coated titanium. A scratch-resistant tactile sapphire crystal window guards the timepiece’s black dial.
Luminous black-white hands and white hour and minute markers stand out in perfect contrast against the dial, making the watch easy to read.
Great for sportsmen, the watch features an altimeter, compass, chronograph and alarm and is suitable for swimming and snorkeling. Swiss quartz keeps the watch ticking with impeccable accuracy.
Philip Stein does it again.
This handsome stainless steel chronograph is a fine addition to the Philip Stein tradition of producing superbly crafted timepieces that look fantastic and contribute to your well-being.
