Best watch deals: Timex, Casio, and other affordable brands

Grabbing a great watch can be a tricky affair. Part of the watch-buying community just wants something that can conveniently tell the time, no phone or hands required. Yet another part of the community wants the best luxury watches, fine-tuned instruments that have complexity and style at their very center. As a result, it can be tricky to find the right price on a watch for your arm. Many people, for example, set the bar high and opt for watches under $1,000 as the deal spot. Others are just looking for a running watch that will tell them how fast their last lap was and don’t have time for that pricey stuff. Accommodating both styles of watch-hunter is, again, tricky.

To do so, however, we’re distilling down the most popular men’s watch brands and picking through their most essential deals. The result should give you that middle ground of luxury, style, and functionality that we know you crave.
