Some people see watches as ancient relics. Sure, we get it — when it comes to finding out the time in the 21st century, most of us can just look at our phones or a nearby screen. But watches are more than just time-tellers. They’re tried-and-true fashion accessories as well. A watch can instantly level up a look, and when you get into smartwatches, they’re just about unstoppable!
There are so many different styles of watches out there with different types of faces and straps. Go leather, gold, minimal, oversized, etc. You get the idea. Once you find The One, you’ll never want to take it off. In fact, you’ll likely want to add many others just like it to your growing collection. The only issue? Watches can be incredible expensive. In extreme cases, a timepiece from famed brands like Rolex and Patek Philippe can set you back over six figures! Now, that’s simply not an option for most of Us, which is why we’ve picked out 10 of our favorites from across the internet with all different styles — all for under $200. You won’t believe how many steals and deals are out there — you just need to know where to look!
