In the age of smartphones and electronic timekeeping, it surprises most to think that watches are still on the market. Well, why wouldn’t they be? They’re stylish, classic, and modern all at once, and many of the big-name brands have been fighting to keep up to date in today’s competitive timekeeping world. However, the market can get quite pricey, with some watches exceeding $1000 on their price tags! Can you imagine that? If you don’t have $1000 to spend on a watch, you might be looking for something to keep time with other than your smartphone (all those apps can be distracting). So, we have put together a handy list of 12 watched, which you can get for under $1000. Some things to consider when shopping around: lens material, diameter of the face, bonus features such as water resistance and luminescence, and the material used when making the strap. Many of them are well-known brands, others are wild cards, but they are all very good watches which deserve to be considered. If none of them are for you, then hopefully this list will give you an idea of what to look for, and what the market looks like.
