The watch world is a very extensive one where you can find multiple options and a lot of different brands, and when trying to decide in which brand or watch to choose things can get a little overwhelming because of the vast amount of options in the market. If you want a new watch and you are currently looking for one that suits you but you are not sure about which brand to choose, here I will be showing you and briefly explaining about 3 good watch brands for men that will not break the bank that I consider to be very good options when searching for a watch and where you can be able to choose from a variety of styles depending on what you are looking for.
I will start the list with one brand that is very likely that you have heard of it, Seiko. This is a Japanese brand that was founded in 1881, which has a lot of horological history and is very well-known within watch enthusiasts and also very popular within the affordable watches segment with some of its models, but also very well-known in the luxury watch world with its Grand Seiko brand.
Something that makes Seiko a very good brand option when looking for watches is the huge variety of watches they offer, different styles and price ranges within the same brand that makes Seiko, in my opinion, one of the most complete watch brands out there. When looking into this brand’s watches, you can find from sporty watches to dress watches to diver watches and field watches, you name it and I am pretty sure that you can find a Seiko watch in the style or model you are looking for.
Also, the price range within its models is amazing, you can find a Seiko watch for less than $100 and also another one for more than $500 depending on the model. But independently from the price, you will always get a very good quality and a very reliable watch for your money without a doubt.
This next brand that I will talk about is also a Japanese brand founded in 1918, which is a brand that is also well known within the watch community but in my opinion not as popular in general as Seiko. Citizen is a brand which I like a lot because of how versatile it is and the vast selection of watches they offer in different categories and price ranges.
I will say that the thing that I like the most about Citizen is the Eco-Drive technology they use in their watches. The Eco-Drive is a solar powered watch that doesn’t need to change its batteries after a couple of years or maybe less like the quartz watches, because it is constantly being charged by the light of the sun and even by any other man made lights like lamps, so you will have a watch that will be always working without you needing to change batteries or winding it. There are other brands that have solar powered watches but for me the best ones are the Eco-Drive watches of Citizen.
Another good thing about Citizen is that you can find a lot of different models and price ranges and find the one that suits you best without compromising quality or reliability and that’s something that I think its very important when buying a watch and choosing a brand to buy of.
This brand is one that I like a lot, it was founded in 1950 in Tokyo, Japan. Orient is a subsidiary company of Seiko and is one of the biggest watch manufactures in Japan after Seiko and Citizen. Is also a brand that is very well-known for its well done in-house movements and mechanical watches.
One of the things that make Orient a very good brand option to look for is that they offer very good watches with in house movements with relatively affordable prices. When you buy a watch from this brand you will get a very good quality watch and movement without spending crazy money on it.
Personally, I think that Orient has one of the most beautiful watches in the more affordable dressy watch segment, with the Bambino line which offers different variations within the same line and it gives you the opportunity to find the one that suits you the most. If you are looking for a watch in that segment and don’t want to break the bank, this model is a very good option to take a look for.
There are a lot of many other brands out there in the market that are very good but in here I wanted to talk about some of them that I think are a very good option when looking for a watch and a brand. My idea by doing this, was to try to help those who are looking to buy a watch and don’t know much about brands and different models and try to give some ideas and draw a path for them to look further and find the best option for what they are looking for. Because I know that sometimes it can be difficult to choose which watch to buy and even more difficult to search for something that you don’t know well specially with all the different brands and options that we are given as customers.
I hope that this article can be useful and can also give some ideas on where to start looking and some more knowledge about these brands.
