It’s a actual simple, apple-pie attending with the silver-tone beaming calmly set adjoin the charcoal dial. Its baptize attrition is aloof 30 meters, but this isn’t absolutely a sports watch.

This is one of those “stop the presses” blazon of deals. It’s not every day you see a affection appearance watch offered at 83 percent off, which is what it works out to aback you accede the originally listed retail price.

The case is the actual athletic 316L surgical stainless animate and the bandage is leather. In fact, this piece, which is advised with accessible bandage interchangeability, comes with two bands, one amber (supple textured), one atramentous (alligator embossed).

Calling Marty McFly! Or, actually, Doc. (If you watched the video in the introduction, you’ll apperceive what we mean.) This agenda Casio reps a array of OG appeal, accustomed the calculator function. It’s absolutely from Casio’s Men’s Vintage Collection. Aback you’re not acclimation your checkbook (you do that?), you can accomplish use of the alarm function.
It’s a Casio, so it’s from a allegorical and actual solid manufacturer. A fun allotment at a abundant amount and it’s got a stainless animate band.

Another access from Timex that we accept to accommodate because it’s just, a) too acceptable looking; b) too able-bodied priced; c) from such a able company; d) has too abounding abundant features. This is a abundant archetype of a alarm that doesn’t accept to be air-conditioned expensive.
The black, assumption case and the covering bandage attending abundant together. You can absolutely abrasion the Expedition wherever you adventure to — central or out. One affair to accumulate in mind, though, is that…even admitting it’s adventurous looking…don’t be too tempted to jump in the basin with your acceptable adorable watch.

This is a bedrock solid acquisition for men’s watches beneath $100 because it is, in fact, a chronograph, featuring the tachymeter forth the alfresco of the dial, ample five-minute-increments in the aing ring.

Another “you gotta be badinage me” abatement here, at 85 percent off the aboriginal retail listing. A big, admirable dejected watch that will attending acceptable at the appointment and will assignment aloof abundant in the water. The 200 ATM is air-conditioned solid, and the watch’s baptize attrition is added with the screw-in acme (makes it about baptize tight).

Addition abundant point about this watch is the fold-over bandage brooch with bifold advance on safety, acceptation it’s not activity to pop off while you’re accomplishing your laps in lane five.

Obviously a acceptable idea, aback Casio aloof alien its 100 millionth G Shock.
This archetypal appearance analog and agenda readout.

We actual abundant dig the clean, simple, affected attending of the Fossil Commuter. Fossil describes it as “resembling a turn-of-the-century wrisch,” to which we say, okay, but this alarm has a around-the-clock attending and we’d like to abrasion it behindhand of heritage. The wire lug stainless animate case is absurd and Fossil has produced this archetypal to be accessible for switching out the covering bands, so you can get added colors to bout your attending du jour. (And Fossil knows its bracelets, which you can see actuality in this account of 10 Best Air-conditioned Men’s Bracelets.)
But aback to the Commuter. For actuality such a big, easy-to-read watch, we do admiration why that date is so tiny. But we alone admiration a little because we like this watch a lot and it’s a abundant price. It additionally comes in a adaptation with a abysmal dejected punch (which is about 10 bucks more).
Price: $65.40 (43 percent off MSRP)
Another abundant accord on a air-conditioned solid watch from an acutely reputable, legendary, continued continuing watchmaker. The SNK805 Seiko 5 is a actual simple watch, and that’s allotment of its air-conditioned appeal. The amount is great, abnormally for a Seiko.
It’s not one of those colossal watches, its case is a actual “traditional” admeasurement of 37mm. The stainless animate case appearance a different analog affectation that puts the hours on an aing arena and the account (in bristles minute, or seconds, intervals) on the outside. The day and date are in the acceptable three o’clock position, admitting the winder is appropriate about the four o’clock position. The calmly of the watch are luminous, including the additional hand’s appendage (while the point of the additional duke is an clear red).
A fun affection is the affectation (see through) back, so you can see some of the automated operation of this 21 jewel watch. This is an automated automated watch so it doesn’t use a battery. It is powered by the motion of your arm (or you can manually wind). The actuality is, Seiko by itself is cool. At this amount — and with these acceptable looks in the military-esque blooming — it’s bifold cool. This one is a a accompanying to the Seiko 5 SNK 809, which we affection in our account of the 10 Best Air-conditioned Watches for Men.
One of the affidavit we’ve included this handsome allotment in the account is a actual fiscally businesslike reason: we capital to accomplish abiding and accommodate some affection watches that are able-bodied beneath $100. You can’t exhausted this price, abnormally from the acclaimed and gigantic Casio. But the low amount is aloof one of the affidavit the watch is in this account of the best watches beneath $100.
This stainless animate analog allotment appearance some abundant detailing, not the atomic of which are the adorning indents on the bezel. We additionally like the way the ablaze blooming blush on the numbers and calmly adverse with the dejected dial.
As for what’s beneath the hood, this allotment appearance a 10 year battery. If you bisect the amount of the watch by the decade of use after alteration the ability source, you can’t lose. Do you wanna go akin lower in amount with a Casio analogue? Analysis out the around-20-bucks AW80D-70 Sports Chronograph, additionally with a 10-year battery.
Price: $31.45 (30 percent off MSRP)
There are, primarily, three abundant things activity with this watch:
1 – It’s a Citizen. Meaning, a actual acclaimed watch maker that has the backbone to accompany air-conditioned acceptable pieces in at lower prices.2 – It’s an Eco-Drive, which is Citizen’s proprietary solar powered function.3 – It’s offered at a abundant abatement — 49 percent off.
Citizen alien Eco-Drive in the U.S. in 1995 and, aback then, the aggregation estimates that its solar powered watches accept alone the allegation for some 10 actor watch batteries in North America. The actuality that it doesn’t allegation a array or doesn’t allegation to be anguish is great. What’s air-conditioned about it is the way Citizen does it: the solar beef are army beneath the watch punch (they’re airy to the eye), which is what makes the Eco-Drive unique.
It’s a actual apple-pie attending with the atramentous “sunray” punch and the beaming calmly and stick markers at anniversary hour. The date and acme are both in the acceptable three o’clock position. The bandage is faux-leather, additionally black, with a catch closure.

Price: $89.99 (49 percent off MSRP)
We apprehend this watch is the outlier in the bunch. This allotment absolutely brings a different attending that we’re assured in adage is a “fun” look. Beyond that, we adulation Swatch and, accepting aback to Ariel’s acumen (see the addition to this post), Swatch is one of those big brands that akin high-end watch geeks can trust.
Another acumen for the Swatch advertisement is personal: I’ve been cutting a Swatch for bristles years now. I can adjure to the actuality that my $70 Swatch, (which I bought in an airport while cat-and-mouse for a connector) has formed beautifully the absolute time. Mine isn’t as…unique…as the Beigesounds. And, accept me, there are affluence of Swatch options (Swaptions?), like this Atramentous Reflexion. Whichever way you go, Swatch is a great, fun watch to rock.
This is addition cast that is appealing consistently priced aloft our abracadabra line, but we absolutely feel this is one of the best watches aing to $100. (The amount on this watch, like abounding awash on Amazon, fluctuates up and down, so sometimes it will be beneath $100…sometimes above.)
This is a Swiss fabricated quartz watch. Wenger is a adept aggregation in Switzerland (founded in 1893) that originally started as a maker of the Swiss Army Knife (along with Victorinox — see watch #20 on the list).
The Urban Metropolitan appearance a stainless animate case in black, as able-bodied as a atramentous punch face. It’s got a absolutely simple look, and that’s allotment of its appeal. The bandage is a arresting orange nylon, but if that’s not your gig, the watch additionally comes with a second, atramentous band.
Back to that punch face — it appearance slate blah numbers at 12, 3, 6 and 9, with assortment marks for the rest. The date window sits amid 4 and 5. The three calmly (hour, minute, seconds) affection bright white, which echoes the white of the Wenger logo beneath 12.

This allotment appearance two sub-dials — a 30 minute punch and a 60 additional dial. The stainless animate case is a big 44mm and the band, with its catch clasp, is silicone.

Baptize aggressive to 330 feet, but like best baptize aggressive watches, it’s not recommended for continued acknowledgment to water.
When you’re talking about men’s watches beneath $100, it’s boxy to acquisition annihilation abrogating to say about this one from MVMT. Accustomed that the watch is alleged the “Minimalist,” it’s appealing abundant a case of what you see is what you get. And you do get affluence with this piece.

Price: $95 (nine percent off MSRP)
This men’s watch beneath $100 is one of those pieces that appearance archetypal artlessness with a bit of a twist. In the case of this ESQ men’s watch, that different aberration is the day and date indicator. Instead of the accepted window at three o’clock, it appearance the canicule in a vertical bandage from one to five, with the day of the anniversary adumbrated by a chatter aperture indicator. The date, which is in red typeface, is in a window from three to four, with the indicator actuality two white hashes that anatomy the date.

This analog watch appearance a quartz movement and it is a advantageous 46mm case diameter. The case is stainless and the bandage is a abysmal amber with allegory white stitching. Like abounding watches, the baptize attrition is not the calling agenda of this piece, but it’s not the affectionate of watch you’d appetite to get wet, anyway.
ESQ makes a advanced alternation of watches, and this is one of the few to be begin beneath our bewitched $100 line, so it’s a acceptable accord and it’s acceptable looking.

Finding a Victorinox beneath $100 is like award the accepted aggravate in a haystack. Best of this brand’s offerings hover in the $500 range.

It is Swiss fabricated (um, of course) and it appearance a aphotic slate blah face with orange highlights. The calmly affection beaming orange accents, and there’s added orange account at the beaming indices at anniversary hour, as able-bodied as the 24 hour numerals.

Swiss quartz movement and animate acme with engraved logo. Baptize aggressive to aloof 100 feet.
I bought this watch for myself because of the abundant amount point, and I get a ton of adulation on it, abnormally from my high-end, Rolex-wearing associate who wants to abduct it from me.
This may be the best different watch of the list. It’s not accustomed that you see a Russian-made watch. Vostok was an official supplier of watches for the USSR’s aegis department.
The Amphibian case was developed to bear pressures to 2000 meters; this watch isn’t produced with that specification, but it does accept a actual solid 200 beat baptize resistance.
This is an automated movement — it cocky apprehension with the motion of the wearer’s arm. It’s a stainless animate 41mm case. The dial, which is black, appearance Russian accent detailing.
The band, in this case, comes in orange nylon, but it’s accessible in several added colors, including a metal band.
How We Approached the List
Ariel break it bottomward to three categories: Perspective, Style, Volume.
First, don’t let the lower amount point counterbalance on you. Your angle is what counts. What you like it what you like, behindhand of price. You can acquisition a affection watch in this amount range, too. Aloof because there are watch snobs out there doesn’t beggarly there aren’t acceptable watches at this amount point. “Solid options abide for $100 that ability akin amuse a snob,” says Ariel.
Second, we’re gluttonous out watches that accept a bit of style, some panache. Watches that are “dashing looking,” to put it in Ariel’s terms. Too often, he says, bargain watches for men “aren’t actual aboriginal looking, well-made, abounding of personality or, even, cool.” This list, then, is comprised of watches that are “easy on the eyes with a acceptable design.”
Third, it pays to pay absorption to some of the able-bodied accepted names because of volume: they’ve been authoritative watches — and a lot of them — for a continued time. Able-bodied admired and bedrock solid watch makers like Seiko or Timex or Casio are so big, they’re able to accompany some of their pieces in at the lower prices. That’s acceptable for those of us with a Benjamin budget!
The key to accepting a acceptable watch beneath $100 is you: it’s about your taste. The better acumen for accepting a watch is simple: you like it. And if you’re giving a watch as a gift, accomplish abiding that you not alone anticipate the almsman is activity to like it, but that you like it, too. Personal aftertaste can be tricky, but it’s never capricious to accelerate the message: I like this, and I anticipate you’ll like it, too. To the being accepting the gift, it agency that you’re administration article that’s meaningful.
