A luxury timepiece is a true status symbol. But while immortalized in hip-hop lyrics and flashed by the most influential names in the world, the likes of Rolex, Audemar Piguet, and Hublot are, for the majority, an aspirational accessory. So, while you’re working on making your millions, we thought it helpful to share some steezy watches that won’t break the bank.
While luxury watches come with five-t0-six-figure price tags, extra digits does not necessarily equate to extra style points. A budget of sub-$250 won’t necessarily mean you have to compromise on a fashion-forward time teller, but rather the intricacies of its movements and the (most likely) Swiss craft that gives the big names their steep values.
Leading the way on the affordable watches front, the likes of Casio and Timex remain classics for their uncompromised versatility. What’s more, both brands are collaborating more and more with streetwear imprints like Carharrt and Todd Snyder, for fashion-forward designs that add something extra to an outfit.
Our selection below includes watches starting from as little as $65. To put that in perspective, you can buy 569 Casio AQ230 watches for the same price as this rose gold Cartier Santos timepiece. Meanwhile, other highlights from our picks include Braun‘s classic, minimalist steel design and an unconventional concrete watch by Aggregate.
