The Cheapest Watches

Updated on May 7, 2014

Get Some Cheap Watches

If you only have one watch, you probably don't know what time it is. A veritable cornucopia of styles, sizes, colors, and fashion statements shaped like wristwatches can be obtained online very inexpensively. No longer must you elbow your way into the jewelry store at the mall to find a watch that looks expensive. We present a sampling of the most popular options. Shop until your credit card melts.

Spider Sense Spider Man Lcd Watch

Even superheroes need to know what time it is. Unless your super power is chronological or you have a sidekick to refer to when the time comes to ascertain the current time, you need a wristwatch. Wrap this Spider Man timepiece around your muscular wrist: you will feel like you can shoot webs and swing with the best of them. No evil villain will mess with you.

The Singularity

It's nerdy and geeky and cheap: what more could you ask for in a watch? Only experienced computer scientists or 8th grade boys can read it. The numbers are displayed in 'binary code', which seems virtually incomprehensible and actually is completely incomprehensible unless you speak the language of computers. Don't wear it to a MENSA meeting and expect to be ignored.

It's a great cheap gift for newly minted PhDs in engineering or physics. Pick up a couple just in case you are suddenly invited to a hooding ceremony or a geekfest.

Green Silicone Crystal Large Face Watch

Nothing will accent your lower forearm more sufficiently than a green silicone watch secured by a specially engineered strap of the same material. Silicone is also used to seal cracks in home construction and the other stuff is called silicon. Don't plan to use this watch to block off a chilly Winter breeze through the dilapidated windows of your palatial estate, but do plan to wear it when the neighbors suddenly come knocking for a game of Parcheesi.

Mood Activated Unisex Color Changing Rubber Watch

We might surmise that telling time would be sufficient, but dedicated watch engineers toiled long into the night to being us a with chronologically capable device that changes color concurrently. Impress your friends and confuse anyone who may be trying to give a detailed description of you to the police.

As your mood alters, so does the color of the watch. It comes in a one-size-fits-all style, meaning that it won't fit adults securely and it will fit kids loosely. If you loose it, think good thoughts: it will change color so you can locate it.

6sense Orange Mens Boys Gift Analog Quartz Sport Wrist Watch

You can be a sport with this watch and it's bright orange. Unless your sport of favor is hiding, there's little need to camouflage yourself. Simply strap on this florescent beacon watch to ensure that passing aircraft will notice you. All the other sportspeople will adore and respect you when they see you coming from 2 miles distant. It's not recommended for wearing to a wedding or a piano recital, but those aren't sports anyway.

Men's Rectangular Classic 3-Hand Analog Watch

It looks expensive, but it's the kind of timekeeper you'd pick up at the gas station along with beef jerky and 5 Hour Energy. Keep your wrist moving: no one will realize you paid less for this device than your last sit-down breakfast at McDonald's.

A rectangular watch face simply screams good taste. No one will be able to ignore your bony wrist when adorned with this time-keeping contrivance. It also offers the sliver-thin hands that are virtually impossible to read without the assistance of direct sunlight at the equator. Should a cheeky watch salesman ask you what you paid for it, simply wave your hand and laugh it off. Don't wave too vociferously: the watch engineers didn't spend much time on the band.

Statue of Liberty Gold Pocket Watch

Ben Franklin wore one. Napoleon was reaching for his when his portrait was painted. You can be like those guys. Order a few Statue of Liberty Gold Pocket Watches for each of the sophisticates in your close circle of friends. They will thank you when they find themselves locked in a duel with a worthy adversary or navigating the high seas in search of The New World. There are so many uses for a pocket watch.

Casio Men's F91WG-9 Watch

The 1970's called: this watch is back in style. If you slept through the original digital watch craze or you had good taste back those days, this watch was made for you. Relive the carefree days when a digital watch cost hundreds of dollars and was actually considered to be high fashion by people who passed such judgements.

It has huge numbers that can be easily read across a room of hippies. There are buttons providing virtually incomprehensible functionality that will soon become completely incomprehensible functionality after you loose the manual. No one understands these cheap watches any more.

Mens Black Silver Quartz Fashion Bracelet Wrist Watch

Silver is the watch color that screams "I have no idea what matches this outfit." Reach for this watch when you're confounded by the challenge of matching your belt and socks. Go swimming with it, get married in it, or try out for Jeopardy with it.

Look for multiple dials on the watch face. That's a sign of high-class design. Each tiny dial has something to say, if you have the eyes of an eagle and the mind of a 5-time Jeopardy champion.

No one ever went wrong by purchasing a product with the word 'fashion' in the title.

      nicomp - you have outdone yourself. This had me in stitches. When I returned from the emergency room at the hospital, I read the rest. Awesome, funny and up, my man.
