Now that I’ve managed to shock everybody with some heinously expensive watches, maybe now we can get into some watches you can actually afford. Believe it or not, you can actually find watches that are as stylish as the watches with prices that run into the five figures without having to take out a second mortgage if you are willing to compare a few like these watches that you can actually get for under $500.
Jivago Men’s Ultimate Quartz Rosegold Tone Dial Rose
With a stylish rose goldtone coloring over stainless steel materials, this watch combines the kind of professional appearance you would expect to see at a high-powered board of directors’ meeting with the affordability that makes it attractive to professionals who are on their way up but still hesitate to spend thousands on a designer watch.
Oceanaut Men’s Spider Chronograph Quartz Black Dial
This watch combines a rose goldtone coloring on a stainless steel case with a black silicone band for a stylish look that makes it popular with timepiece collectors and Hollywood personalities. For functionality, it adds three chronographs and water resistance to a depth of 100 meters to make this a favorite with athletes and actors who often have more important things to think about than whether their watch will survive being dunked.
Seapro Men’s Coral Quartz Black Dial Black Stainless Steel
With useful functions such as a tachymeter and three chronograph dials, this impressive-looking watch is sturdy enough to survive the occasional dunking when you’re out white-water rafting on a modest route or training for the big marathon. It uses ceramic and stainless steel to add to the durability to keep it looking much sportier than those weak but stylish expensive watches you see every time you meet with a high-powered exec.
Invicta Men’s Subaqua Chronograph Gunmetal Dial Gray
Who knew that you could get an Invicta watch for this cheap?

It is water resistant to a depth of 500 meters for when things get a little intense on the water and, though it’s listed as casual, you won’t need to be embarrassed if you grab this instead of your usual watch on the way to the office as it only shows off that you’re savvy enough to snag a good deal on a quality watch.
Casio Men’s G-Shock Chronograph Black Dial Black Ion

Combine this with a water-resistant rating up to 20 ATM (about 200 meters) and a classy look, and this watch is a versatile winner.
Jivago Women’s Infinity Quartz Silver Dial Gold & Silver Stainless Steel
With a gold and silver appearance that gives no excuse for spending ten times the price of this watch for a designer brand, this selection from Jivago uses stainless steel and a quality mineral crystal to withstand the routine bumps and scrapes of everyday life. This is a watch that every professional woman can quietly show off as a sign that you’re on your way up.

With three subdials and a tachymeter, this watch looks as sporty as any comparable man’s watch and is functional enough for the active woman who can keep up with the men on that marathon route.

Momo Design Women’s Pilot Lady Black Dial Black Leather
This Momo Design selection has been deeply discounted for quick sale, so here’s your chance to snap up a watch with some serious style for women who like a boldly colored watch but have been less than impressed by inexpensive silver and gold colored selections. With diamond markers and silvertone hands, this is a watch to be taken seriously by people who want to stand out.
Luminox Women’s Black Dial Black Genuine Leather
This is a watch that doesn’t fool around when it comes to keeping up with your activity.

Coach Women’s White MOP Dial Two Tone SS
Now that you’re back in the office after an intense weekend, this watch will add to that professional look with a subdued silver tone and gold-colored highlights that add that brilliant sheen to the toughness of stainless steel. It will look good on your wrist without looking like it’s trying to pass for a man’s watch and can compare in looks to those high-priced designer watches that the execs wear.
