The Best Men's Watches Under $200 Look Like a Million Bucks

Your hunt is over: Best Stuff is GQ’s destination for finding the perfect version of whatever you need, like the best wallet-friendly timepieces. You can thank us later.

The big news in men's watches right now might be smart (as in shiny, new, and can read your emails) and old (as in rare, one-of-one, and expensive), but if you're a timepiece purist on the hunt for a handsome watch, the good news is that there have never been more options to choose from. And we're not just talking about the high-end of the market where premium materials (platinum, gold, alligator) and ultra complicated Swiss movements can easily drive a single watch's retail price north of $20,000. If your accessory budget is about 1% of that, you're still in luck. Watch brands big and small are churning out timepieces that share similar aesthetics of those way, way pricier options, but don't clock in at the cost of a sensible four-door sedan. Yes, you're trading off bells and whistles and the fine craftsmanship that makes the guts of some watches as jaw-dropping as their carefully considered dials at the two-Benjamin level, but those are the details that only a true watch aficionado will pick up on when you flash your newly decorated wrist at your next sales meeting. Everyone else around the lacquered conference table will just think you're a guy with good taste. Here are three under-$200 watches you can't go wrong with (and one that's worth bumping up that budget for just a bit more). ... 00-dollars

This watch bought at a really smart price of $66.00 USD. from a sale that allowed for whatever reason a 50 percent off code to be applied. In-house movement. I'd recommend an Orient watch to anyone looking in the two hundred range. Plenty of styles too. Seiko 5 and quite a few Seiko and Citizen, while we're at it. I personally try to buy only automatic. Once in a while a quartz slips in, and it has to be something special. Of course you're mileage may vary. Thanks for posting, wiltonjones. Good to see some new blood in here. Please join us in the WURW threads, we do really enjoy seeing everyone's watch.
