I have bought my Dad a watch in this price range before!

Dad works in a factory working with textiles including rubber. Factory workers are not allowed to wear any sort of jewelry for health and safety reasons as well as the fact that the machinery may damage their watches, bracelets or rings. There were no clocks near the machines so Dad needed to wear something to tell him the time and so that he knew when he could escape for his next tea break! Every few years I bought him a new watch (faces got badly scratched or straps got worn with wear so he needed a new timepiece every so often). In the end I went for stainless steel options, as they seemed to last longer than leather strap ones. Now when I think about it a pocket watch would probably have lasted the longest of them as he could have kept it in the pocket of his trousers or overalls.

If you want a men's pocket one here is the best one I have came across. I do remember my Mum telling me that her Grandfather always had one of these in his hand, and for that reason I associate them with the 1920s as opposed to today. However wearing anything below the elbow is frowned upon in the health service so I can still see their is a demand for such a timepiece.

Timex is perfect for sports lovers

Timex and Casio are leaders in this category. I am in hot pursuit of a new sports watch for my boyfriend since he has turned into a fitness freak. Now that it is the better weather he is out running most nights. This Timex is the perfect price for a small gift for him, and I hope it helps motivate him to do faster laps and improve his fitness.

Update- My boyfriend is still using his Timex watch 2 years later! He always wears it when he is going running in the evenings or doing 5 mile runs at the weekend.

This Timex watch is perfect for sportsmen as it lets them record lap times, has a countdown timer and stopwatch; all essential items for a workout. It has a mineral window which reduces the risk of scratches, as well as a nightlight which make it useful for jogging or running at night. It has a strong black resin strap which will not break easily.


Every man needs a great dress watch

A black leather strap watch is a needs must for every gentleman.

Citizen make lovely black leather watches for less than 100 dollars

If you are looking for a classy men's black timepiece then look no further than this one by Citizen. The reviews tell you everything you need to know and with an average of 4.5 stars from 41 ratings you can be sure you are getting quality. It has a black leather strap normally retails for $150, but it is currently on sale for $96 on Amazon; Amazon do change their prices often so it may not be on sale forever.

This wristwatch would be perfect for wearing to a dinner date or a business meeting. It has a simple design but yet it oozes class. I love the silver numbers on the dial; I think they go really well with the black strap.


So many available, how to pick just one

If you are looking for a great gift for your boyfriend and are struggling to pick one from those featured, do not fret as there are some decisions you can make which will help you!

1) Does he like sports? If he does not perhaps a sports watch is not for him and instead you should go for a casual or dress timepiece. There are many of these available all under 100 dollars.

2) Does he wear any other jewelry? If he wears a gold/silver/platinum ring then choose one to match these. If he does not wear any other jewelry you can choose either but maybe best to ask him first.

3)Some men are not fans of leather strap watches (apparently they make their wrists too sweaty) so make sure and check with him before buying one!

Men's Silver Watches Under $100

Many of these are currently reduced. Choose from Invicta, Bulova, Seiko and Timex.

It is important to note that the gold options are not solid gold but actually gold plated. Solid gold would add a considerable amount on to the price of the timepiece. To be honest if I was only spending $100 I would rather go for a quality silver dress watch like the Bulova one shown below. It is fresh and oozes class without looking cheap.
