Wrist Watches: The Timeless Gift

Wrist watches are a great way to show someone you care for them. A wrist watch makes a great gift for any occasion, whether it's for a birthday, graduation, Christmas, weddings, or any other celebration.

There are so many different styles of watches that it can often be difficult to find that right one. This selection of watches are for men who often dress in casual clothes. However, you'll also find that they will go with smart-casual outfits and are also suitable for light activity and are also water resistant; a great combination for men on the go.

There are 10 great watches I've discovered and reviewed that are all under $100 each and are often in the Amazon sales due to the popularity of them. With only $100 to budget for they are within easy reach for most household luxury budgets.

Since broken watches are the most common reason for purchasing a new one I'll also show you how to clean your wrist watch to help prevent damage from scratches and the build up of dirt. Having a clean and well mmaintained watch will keep it in perfect running order for years to come.

Stuhrling Original Men's 168S.33151 "Classic" Stainless Steel Automatic Watch with Leather Band
Stuhrling Original Men's 168S.33151 "Classic" Stainless Steel Automatic Watch with Leather Band

Watch mechanics can be fascinating and with this one you can see straight through the face into the actual mechanism. There is no need for a battery as it a traditional automatic mechanism which means that there is a little weight in the watch that keeps it wound-up. The case is surgical grade stainless steel with protective krysterna crystals so it is more shatter and scratch resistant. The style is more suited to office wear during the week rather than an active sporty weekend style.

You'll never have to worry about being late with the eco-drive as you have no need to replace the battery as the solar cell stores energy in a rechargeable mangenese-titanium battery - just pop it out in the sun for a few minutes and your good to go. The watch comes with a canvas band that is great for casual wear but if you need something a little smarter you could always get a nice leather band to replace it.
