Best Watches under $100

Best watches under $100

$100 is considered quite a tight budget for buying good watches, however there are still some very good options that can be had for just $100 or less!

The watches in this list are the ones I think are the best you can get for under $100, but keep in mind that this is only my opinion. If you have more suggestions or ones you’d like to add please leave them in the comments below this article!

1. Seiko 5 SNK

When talking value for money, the Seiko 5 SNK is undoubtedly one of the the best picks for under $100.

It features a highly robust Seiko 7s26 movement, a display caseback, and a timeless design.

2. G-Shock DW5600E

I have personally always argued that this is the watch with the best features you can get for the money.

It features a 80s/90s retro digital look, G-Shock toughness, 200m water resistance and much more.

3. Timex Weekender

The Timex Weekender is a great value for money piece that is highly versatile. You can wear it with more formal attire, but also great for a weekend out as the name suggests.

It features a high quality construction, reliable movement, timex indiglo and much more!

4. G-Shock GA-100

G-Shock is definetly very significant in the under $100 price range, and this model is a more modern G-Shock with a stealthy design.

It features 4 alarms, stopwatch, countdown timer, 200m water resistance and much more!

5. Swatch GB743

If you are looking for a high quality swiss made watch for a very low price, then Swatch is definetly for you.

This watch can be worn with all kinds of attire, and is a classic icon of the swatch brand.

Regardless of which one of these watches you pick up, you will get great value and quality for money for sure.

    Why not include a Vostok?. I would certainly rather have a Scuba Dude than a G-shock.

      Many people said the same thing about including a Vostok, which is why I acquired it for a review 🙂
