Buying Time: 5 of the best affordable watches

This week PromoPro UK takes a look at that most essential of everyday essentials for working men – the watch. Here are some of the best value timepieces on the market. You can check out all our discounts on watches here.


1. Daniel Wellington – Bristol Watch £140-190


This classically styled watch from Daniel Wellington which is framed by an ultra-thin face cased in either rose gold or silver is a timeless piece. This watch is adaptable for all occasions; smart enough for work and parties while casual enough for everyday work. The watch is especially flexible in its use due to the ability to switch the dark leather straps for the nylon nanostraps that give the watch a more preppy look. This is a watch which is era-less and would have worked as well for summer in the Hamptons in the 1950’s as it does now for the elegantly dressed 21st Century gentleman.


2. Armani Exchange AX2501 – £120-150


Flashier than the Daniel Wellington, this wristwatch with its chronograph display and silver on blue face would be a stylish cost-effective addition to anyone’s arm. The date window is a pretty addition to the face and the stainless steel case combine to form a very clean look. Water resistant this watch wouldn’t be out of place being worn by elite businessmen on the yachts in Monaco.


3. Hugo Boss Black Rubber Strap Watch – £180-210



For our next watch we move away from the classic styles of the first two and move bang into the 21st Century with this Hugo Boss watch. This watch would suit Bruce Wayne in both his jobs as the coolest of all the superheroes and as an international playboy. Its sleek black design with silicone strap is slightly pricier than some of the other options but is still more than good value for a watch which gives the impression you have just parked the batmobile.


4. Michael Kors MK8280 Watch Lexington Chronograph Silver – £150-180



For those who aren’t fond of the leather or silicone strap we have this classy item from Michael Kors. This stainless steel chronograph exudes masculinity and success and is a modern watch for all year round. This watch is available at most stores at around the £165 mark, a bargain for a watch which is sure to be the envy of the office.


5. Vivienne Westwood Classic Leather Strap Watch – £195

Vivienne Westwood

The edgiest of the watches in our list, this one from the London Based fashion powerhouse Vivienne Westwood is a really funky option. Looking like a timepiece from a Lewis Carroll novel this watch is perfect for the young inner city man who wants a talking point at parties. The light brown strap and signature Westwood detailing gives this watch a playful look.
