They say shoes are a girls best friend, well watches come close for us men. Whether you’ve got £100 to spend or £10,000, a good timepiece is always appreciated as a gift.

Whether it’s for Christmas morning, a birthday, a wedding present or an anniversary we’ve browsed through the market and picked out 5 watches to consider.

Here’s a quick tip to help you choose…

Before making the decision think about their day to day style. If they’re someone who wears casual attire throughout the week opt for a casual timepiece to match. Although a Rolex may be appreciated it’s going to sit on the bedside table if they’re a builder.

These 5 watches keep within a budget of £1,000 with the majority of them being under £200.

Shore Projects Morecambe

Inspired by the seaside, Shore Projects is a British Brand which offer affordable watches.

What’s great about this watch is once the face has been chosen you can alternate between straps. You might buy the watch in Black Leather but if the recipient isn’t a fan they can simply buy a different strap to go with the watch face.

Want to take it a step further? Buy a few additional straps and let them alternate for different occassions.

Itero Pocket Watch

We recently shone the spotlight on Itero and their vision to create a high quality, stylish modern day pocket watch. Manufacturing watches using the best available materials at an affordable price this is a great gift for any sentimental occasion.

We recommend taking it a step further and getting the watch stand, perfect for the office environment and with custom engraving it makes it slightly more personal.

Uniform Wares C-41 Chronograph

This British watchmaker is one I’m personally fond of producing exceptional timepieces made for everyday use. This modern design comes with an Italian Nappa Calf Leather Strap and a Swiss-made Ronda 5021.D 10-Jewel Movement.

The chocolate leather strap and subtle detailing on the watch face makes it suitable for nearly any wardrobe both casual and formal.

Timex Chrono Oversized Watch

Dropping the budget right down this watch is perfect for casual attire and weekend wear. The Nylon strap makes this timepiece a casual alternative to the other recommendations in this article and the Indiglo Nightlight is an impressive subtle detail.

You can also opt for a leather strap if you want more of a formal watch. The oversized numbers might not be for everyone but all in all this watch is a steal for the price.

Daniel Wellington Classic Sheffield

Last but not least Daniel Wellington prides themselves on simplicity, producing affordable watches that look luxury. The Sheffield model is a favourite of mine and the black leather really adds to the minimal aesthetic.

With an ultra thin design, rose gold detailing and minimal branding is the watch boring? No. This watch screams elegance for an affordable price. Other colours are also available.
