Affordable mens swiss watches under 500 of 2016
Most people make the decision to buy a watch based on its brand and design. Only a few take a moment to think and find out the finer details of the watch. I personally like to know what I am dealing with, so before I buy a watch I make sure to cover every detail of it. One thing I pay special attention to is the mechanism that moves the hands around the watch, as that is the crucial part for the accuracy of the watch. Although there are a number of different movements, you would most likely run into a watch that has a mechanical or quartz movement. I prefer the ones with quartz movement with the Swiss logo on them which indicates that the watch contains only Swiss parts, which are the best quality among them all. I have found some affordable swiss watches under 500 dollar and I would like to hear your opinion on them so please comment below.
Swiss Legend Men’s 10543-07
I will start with the one that is the cheapest in my list of affordable mens watches under 500. Swiss Legend Men’s 10543-07 is a real bargain when it comes to affordable swiss watches. The case is made of stainless steel with 47 millimeters in diameter and 15.5 millimeters thick, which makes it a big bigger than most standard men’s watches. The dial is made with bold yellow color and will definitely attract the attention of everyone around you. It is decorated with green markings, the swiss logo for quality, the water resistance level and a small date display on the three o’clock position. The dial is made of synthetic sapphire, material not so commonly used for affordable luxury watches. The watch has a black silicone band with a simple buckle clasp. It is water resistant up to 330 feet which makes it perfect for swimming, snorkeling and other water activities.
Swatch Men’s YCS410GX.
My second suggestion is Swatch Men’s YCS410GX. This watch has fought for its place among the affordable swiss watches list and is really a watch worth having. It is one of the cheap watches that look real expensive.The round dial is made of aluminum which is light and strong and is 39 millimeters in diameter and only 9 millimeters thick. The dial is a combination of two shades of black with silver markings for better indication of time. From the additional features, the watch has a date display on the four o’clock position and three sub-dials with chronographic functions in the center of the dial. The dial is covered by a window made of plastic which I must admit came as a real surprise to me having in mind the options that the watch has to offer and the fact that it has the swiss logo highlights its quality. On top of that the bezel has tachymeter, a feature I don’t usually see on these type of watches. Swatch Men’s YCS410GX is water resistant up to 99 feet and can only sustain exposure to a limited supply of liquid.
Tissot Men’s T0354391605100
My favorite watch from my list of best affordable watches is Tissot Men’s T0354391605100. I think it is very stylish and elegant but at the same time a very simple watch. The case is made of stainless steel with a diameter of 41 millimeter and 12 millimeters thick. The predominant color on this watch is black, although it has several silver elements. The dial is decorated with the Tissot logo, three sub-dials with chronographic features and a date display on the four o’clock position. In addition, on the margins of the case there are Tachometer markings. The dial window is made of anti-reflexive sapphire material which enhances the quality of the watch and places it in the category of the best affordable watches. The band is made of black genuine leather and has a deployant-buckle clasp. It is water resistant up to 330 feet so it might be convenient for swimming but nothing else. However, having in mind that it has a leather band you might want to consider staying out of the water while the watch is on your wrist.
Invicta Men’s 6983
My next suggestion is a watch of the Invicta’s Pro Diver Collection, or Invicta Men’s 6983. This is a very bold watch due to the choice of colors. It has a brushed and polished 18k gold plated stainless steel case, 48 millimeters in diameter and 17 millimeters thick, a bit bigger than the watches we are accustomed to. The dial is blue with gold-tone hands and dots instead of numbers which are luminous and enable you to tell the time even when there isn’t enough light. The dial is also decorated with three sub-dials for the chronographic features and an unusual date function. The dial window is made of resistant mineral crystal that protects your watch from scratches. The band is made of black polyurethane with gold elements and a buckle clasp. You can swim and snorkel with this watch, but don’t go diving as it is water resistant only up to 330 feet. Having in mind the features it has it is definitely a must have watch in your collection of the most affordable luxury watches.
Victorinox Men’s 241679
My final suggestion for today is Victorinox Men’s 241679. The case with a diameter of 43 millimeters and thickness of 12.2 millimeters is made of quality stainless steel and gives the watch a rather masculine look. The dial is black and leaves the impression as if a lot was going on in that tiny watch. It has three sub-dials with chronographic features and luminous elements for better view in the dark. On the six o’clock position there is additional display that indicates the date. The dial is covered by a window made of anti-reflexive sapphire that protect the watch from exterior influences. The band is in form of a bracelet that has a fold-over clasp that with double locking mechanism. The watch can be worn during daily activities that include water and as it is water resistant up to 330 feet.
That was my selection of the most affordable mens watches that look good and will cost you less than 500 dollars. If you need nice affordable watches that can complement your appearance but still be within your price range than I am sure one of these five can be your next best friend.
