Men's Watch Guide - Top Picks in Men's Watches in Different Price Ranges


Everybody has a different concept of what expensive means when it comes to items such as watches. I have a friend who thinks anything over $150 is too expensive. But then there are guys who think anything above $1,000 is too expensive. That's why I have come up with some of my top picks in watches in different price ranges.

1. My Favorite Fossil Fashion Watches for Men

Since 1984, Fossil has been turning out some great looking stylish watches. The designs are original and fashionable and they make great watches for the guy who likes to make a statement or likes to coordinate his watch with his outfit. And because these watches are affordable (most being around $100), you can do that.

2. Terrific Men's Watches Under $100

These days so many companies are producing really cool watches that look much more expensive than they actually cost. It's amazing really. No longer do you need to buy a fake Rolex (that won't last either) when you have so many other choices out there. Watches have indeed come a long way. So if you are looking for terrific men's watches under $100, take a look at some of my top picks.

3. Cool Watches Priced from $100 to $200

Often features and styling improve when you spend a little more money on a item like a watch. Here are a few cool watches priced from $100 to $200.

4. My Favorite Men's Watches Priced Around $500

Most guys I know have a thing for watches. But some of us just can't afford some of the premier brands that command thousands of dollars. The good news is that there are some great, inexpensive alternatives. In fact, some of these watches look rather expensive and will be sure to impress. Here I have listed my favorite watches for men around $500.

5. Men's Luxe Watches

I have received requests from readers asking about my favorite men's luxe watches. There are many watches in a relatively affordable price range, however, if want to spend this kind of money you have to be careful not to go for the fashion watches. You want to choose a brand that is reputable and produces a quality product. All of the watches in the list I have compiled are of good quality and will be long lasting in terms if style.

6. Things to Consider When Buying Men's Watches

I've said it before, a watch is the single most important accessory a man can own--it is an essential style element. As you might imagine, I am acutely aware of these kinds of details and I must say I've noticed too many casual watches making their way into office/work/formal settings. It screams sloppy (and so do I) and I urge all of you who wear your multi-function G-Shock or Casio style sport watches with your suits and other dressier attire to pick up something slightly more sophisticated. Don't get me wrong, it can still be sporty, but perhaps a little more stylish.
