Most men love watches and we're not sure why. Maybe it's the simple funcitionalioty of having the time on your wrist. Maybe it's for the fashion statement a nice timepiece makes. Or it could be the craft that goes into a nice mechanical watch. Whatever the reason we love 'em and with all the choices in the market there is a lot to keep track of. Luckily we've done the hard work for you with the top 5 watches (you can afford) for 2020.
The Tudor North Flag
$3,875, yes it's expensive but good value for the money
For our money Tudor offers a better value than a Rolex, while still reveling in the glow from it's more renowed older brother. And the Black Flag is a perfect example of Tudor at it's finest. The movement features a bidirectional self-winding system and is certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC). But what makes this watch special is that the movement was done entirely in house. Not only is it stunning (although a tad chunky) with bold lines and colors but it is a giant leap in Tudors contining rise and heritage.
Seiko Presage Arita Porcelain Dial SPB093
$1,900 This is the best value you can find in the watch world today
What can we say about this stunning watch to do it justice? We can tell you how the porcelain for the dial was made in a region of Japan renowned for their long history of craftsmanship. Or, we can tell you about the almost perfect movement inside this masterpeice that rivals movements from Swiss makers. But really, all we need to say is that this watch is near perfect. The value that Seiko has packed into this watch is amazing, every detail is meticulously designed and executed. From the elegant dial to the hair thin second hand, to the throw back red "12" they have done it right. People who want to show off wear Rolex but true watchheads know that Seiko is the real deal.
Casio World Timer
$25 If you can't afford this watch you are doing life wrong.
The Casio digital watch has been around for over 30 years and in that time it hasn't changed much. It was cool in the 1980's and it's cool in the 2020's. The World Timer version carries on the squared face and digital time but also offers a range of modes for telling, well, world time. We love the extremely bright illumination and bulletproof build. If you are a hipster or an extremely pragmatic type then this is your go to affordable watch.
Orient Bambino version 4
$128 Great value for the money
If you don't know anything about watches and don't really care, you just want something that looks good and tells time this is your watch. The Orient Bambino actually has an automatic movement and beustiful details like rose gold hands and a retro look that goes well with any style. We love this watch for daily wear and think it's a deal considering all the deatils (like suede strap) pack into it. Plus it looks expensive, and will certainly fool most of your freinds into thinking you actually have some style.
Bell and Ross BR V1-92 MILITARY
$2,000 It's a bit too expensive, try looking on used sites for one around $1,400
We love this watch, but it's priced a little high. That said, we really like the boutique watches Bell and Ross are making and the V1 is one of our favorites. Not only is it made in our preferred 38mm size but it has a vintage colorway that looks amazing on the wrist. This watch is a head turner and if you can find a good used one below $1,500 it's well worth picking up.
