It’s easily done. Watches are one of those fashion items that you can spend serious money on. Personally, I feel like the watches you can pick up for the $100-300 compete by far and away with anything more expensive than that. There are some extremely good looking men’s watches under $100, and we’ve rounded up a few of our favourites.
1. The Simple and Stylish Komono Winston Regal
Komono have been one of my favourite brands on the men’s watch circuit for a long time. I previously owned a Komono watch that I kept for years – and it rarely came off my wrist. The Winston Regal is a gorgeous shape, and comes in a whole variety of top notch colour combinations.
2. Sometimes the most popular options could be the best, go with a Daniel Wellington
Just because it’s popular doesn’t mean you should overlook it. The Daniel Wellington watch ranges are some of the most affordable, yet still exceptionally stylish, watches on the market. They’ve carved themselves out a niche in the wrist watch game, mainly driven by their fantastic Instagram page. For sub $100, you could do an awful lot worse than a #DW.
3. Timex Weekender Chronograph Wristwatch

The weekender chronograph series by Timex is a really gorgeous watch. Timex often feature when talking about affordable watches that don’t compromise on style. Hey, these particular models from Timex would make the list of most stylish watches under $50, so that gives you an idea of the value for your money.
4. You could always join the MVMT
MVMT are another, like Daniel Wellington, who have been around for a long time dominating the Instagram scene. They have a ton of watches in varying price points – some under $100, and a few over. If you go MVMT, you’ll certainly be able to find a watch which suits your liking.
5. Tan with an accent of blue, with Lord Timepieces
Lord timepieces are a watch company that prides itself on producing ‘affordable luxury watches’. They have a whole host of timepieces on sale under $100, but one of my favourites is this stealthy black wrist watch with gorgeous electric blue accent hands.
6. This gorgeous real wood wrist watch from Komono
We talked about Komono earlier in this Stack. This time, it’s a watch with a little bit more of a twist. Wooden watches have floated around for a while online, but I personally love the hybrid mix here between gold metal and the light hardwood.
7. The Withings sleek and stylish wristwatch that’s actually a cracking Smartwatch
The Withings Activitè is a smartwatch to rival the Apple watch in terms of style and functionality. Whilst it doesn’t come packed with features like Siri or maps, it’s a real bump up from other fitness trackers like the FitBit.
This watch fluctuates around the benjamin mark – currently it’s available on Amazon for $97. I just couldn’t include it on a Stack for the best men’s watches under $100, considering it’s both stylish and functional.
8. For rugged lovers, check out this Casio G-Shock in grey and red contrasts
A slightly more rugged look than some of the other watches in this Stack. G-Shock by casio is a well recognised brand, and for good reason. If you like this rough and ready style, a watch like this with excellent colour contrasts could really set your wrist alight.
9. This stylish men’s leather watch offering from Skagen

Skagen is a brand I stumbled across whilst researching this list. They produce a ton of affordable, stylish timepieces all with their own unique twist. This twist is often produced with the colours that go into the watch – they have some really classy options, with this Chronograph style watch being one of my favourites.
10. This super affordable, rugged Timex weekender watch
Some of the Timex deals on Amazon are just off the hook. The fact that you can pick up a solid watch, with fairly good built quality and great style, for just over $30 is absolutely mad. Timex watches look and feel way past their price point. Definitely worth a look, especially with Prime Day coming up.
11. The Eco-Drive Watch Line from Citizen
Another line of super stylish watches that come in at a fairly cut-throat price. Unlike Daniel Wellington, MVMT or Lord Timepieces, Citizen aren’t a brand where most of their watches cost under $100. It’s much more likely with this brand that you’ll be spending $250-300 for a Citizen timepiece, but the Eco-Drive line can sometimes be found at the $100 mark.
12. This sleek and stylish Skeleton watch from Swatch
Swatch is a super famous wristwatch brand you’ll almost certainly have come across. They popularised watches for kids – but also make some pretty cracking watches for adults. This black skeleton watch reminds me of the black Apple Watch Sport,
13. Try Daniel Wellington’s Men’s NATO strap wristwatch offering

The NATO strap is a great way to ‘casual up’ the Daniel Wellington men’s watch line. The NATO looks cracking when paired with a light shirt and shorts; perfect for summer. DW’s certainly are one of the strongest contenders for the best men’s watches under $100.
14. If you’re looking for a cheaper NATO option, try the Timex Weekender Fairfield
Sorry, another Timex watch. I just can’t help including them – sure, the design when compared to the Daniel Wellington above it, but it’s pretty damn close. When you’re talking about a watch over half price cheaper, it really is exceptional what Timex do time and time again with their Men’s watches.
15. This stylish monochrome timepiece from Stuhrling
Stuhrling are a pretty well known mid-range watch manufacturer. They sell a whole host of watches under $100, and this digit-faced high contrast watch is one of my favourites.
16. Go full hipster with this handmade, entirely wooden wristwatch
Normally handmade watches run a little bit more than $30. Okay, so they’re not normally made completely out of wood, but that certainly gives this watch from REDEAR it’s standout feature.
17. Another gorgeous and stylish men’s watch from MVMT, a solid bet
Here’s another timepiece from MVMT. Again, one of the cheaper in their range, but I really like the simplistic edge and light tan strap. Definitely a great option to contrast some dark denim or a dark jacket.
18. The Fossil Commuter series, midnight blue
I’m a sucker for midnight blue. Whilst browsing on Nordstrom, I stumbled across this gorgeous watch from Fossil. That watch face colour is just to die for – and this one has gone straight on my buy list.
19. Another Bruce Wayne-worthy watch to finish off the Stack
This pretty stealthy looking watch is also from Fossil. Just as stealthily named, it’s just referred to as the ‘Nate’. Anyhow, it’s an extremely sexy looking watch that wouldn’t look out of place on Batman’s wrist.
