I love the look of Movado ones! 

Also, if you have a winners/tjxmaxx near you they sell really nice higher end watches at a slight discount. My husband loves watches and I buy a few from there.

I love Movado, Burberry or Tissot for mens watches.  You can easilly find those under 1k.  I usually steer away from Seiko or Citizen since most of them don’t have the sapphire crystal face that the 3 I mentioned do.  This part is important to me since it makes the face more scratch resistant.  I stopped by mineral crystal cause the face gets beat up (or maybe I’m just bad with watches), but my sapphire face watch don’t have a scratch on it even after 10+ years!

Check out watches at, neiman and bloomingdales, the have watches for sale all th time.  If you don’t mind grey market (authentic watches, but not authorized dealers), check out

Shinola is all the rage where I live right now. Their watches start around 575$. They’re the only watch company made in the USA currently. I gave my fiancé this watch a few years ago and he loves it!

rosabelle :  Do you live in a major city? I think it will be the last week of feb/first week of march that they host their Runway event, where they bring in extra high end merch. its usually only 1-2 stores per city though. I’ve seen some really nice watches at that time. Also leading up to xmas they will likely have more stock in, so check back often. Keep the receipt and you can always return it if you find something you lik ebetter!

I’ve always been a fan of Citizen. Love their watches, and very affordable. I’ve had my white gold Citizen EcoDrive since 2010 and I’ve never had any issues with it– and I wear it literally every day.
