Top 20 Watches Under $200

so let’s start this video off talking about a watch brand that’s been around for almost 80 years yet most of you probably have never heard of it that company is vostok now if you’re familiar with your history you know that this is the official supplier of watches to the former soviet union so back in 1942 the moscow watch factory was destroyed and they relocated they founded this company and these guys have been making watches for the russians and ukrainians and belarusians and all the former soviet republics for a long time now this watch i’ve got right here is probably one of the more famous ones and i absolutely love it it is the vostok kamidursky i think i said that correctly this one right here is the 24 hour watch why do you need a 24 hour watch because imagine if you’re on a submarine and you don’t surface for days for weeks at a time guess what you don’t you lose track of time so is it two o’clock in the morning two o’clock in the afternoon if you look at this watch you don’t have to worry about it because instantly you can tell what time of the day it is it’s really i think an ingenious watch something very unique hence why i think this is a great watch that any guy could easily buy under 200 bucks add to his collection and stand out from the crowd oh and by the way it’s automatic it’s a rugged watch and if you are in the dive watches go check out vostok’s dive watches i think these are hidden gems a lot of people loving it again it is a little bit of a rougher watch i’m not going to say it’s as polished there’s a lot of the other ones out there but if you want something that’s going to be different something’s going to stand out from the crowd definitely check out vostok now sticking with the russian theme let’s talk about luke and the one-handed watch again i’m going for unique here and guess what the price well under a hundred bucks for this watch now one-handed watches these have been around for a long time but i think that this one is affordable it looks good and it’s just a novelty fun watch to add to your collection now what is a one-hand watch look at it right here do you notice how they simply use one hand to tell you the time is it accurate down to the second no it’s not but is it going to be something that’s a great conversation starter something that you could add to your collection and have a watch unlike any already in your collection the answer there is yes next up on this list we’ve got a watch that’s pretty much on everybody’s list for one of the most affordable best deal high quality watches out there that is the orient bambino you can find this one for anywhere from 100 to 150 this is the generation 2 version 2.

I think all they’re already up to generation four what is the difference so as the generations go on the watches have actually gotten a little bit larger not everyone likes that me included because i’ve got a smaller wrist but this one right here is about 40 to 40 and a half millimeters in size it’s about 12 millimeters thick it’s a good looking watch the only thing i can see a lot of people don’t like and i agree with is that the glass on this will scratch easily but if you want a good looking dress watch you want something that is affordable that’s automatic that basically again and again people are giving great reviews to including myself check out the orient bambino but let me know in the comments if you agree disagree because i know a lot of you guys probably own this watch and you could probably give your bit of advice down there next up i’ve got the ray 2 and the mako tube both by orient i’ve had these watches for a while i’ve talked about them before in my collection video absolutely love these watches these are going to be more rugged than the bambino and their dive watches now what’s the difference it’s really in the style here and you’re also going to find that the mako 2 is slightly larger although it’s almost insignificant the size difference but both of these great looking dive watches as you can tell i love both of them automatic just yeah great watches to add to your collection and well under 200 bucks next up we’ve got the timex ms-1 maritime sport this is a combination deal with todd snyder and that’s what i like about this because timex by itself not very stylish with todd snyder very stylish i think they did a great job well under 200 bucks and i think the style is what sold it to me and what really closed the deal the indiglo now timex is known for this but i’ve never seen it on a watch like this again very affordable price so i grabbed this one and no reservations it’s got a nice bezel on it and just really a cool look to it the only re the only thing i don’t like about it is it doesn’t have a hacky day so you’ve actually got to rotate the time to get to the accurate day and that’s kind of a pain in the butt but it’s a quartz watch so you only have to do it once every couple years next up i’ve got another timex todd snyder combination as you can tell i love this duo here todd snyder was able to bring a lot of style to a basic field watch now he took inspiration from the 1970s timex made a similar watch to this but this one right here just absolutely love the only thing i don’t like about it only 50 meters water resistant everything else is really clean when you look at the dial you look at how easy it is to read the numbers it’s a quartz watch it’s going to keep it relatively affordable well under the 200 mark but one thing i really like about this the color combination so you see the steel it’s got a little bit of brass in there also with the the strap just a good looking olive green military inspired just a clean looking watch absolutely love it that’s why i’m putting it on this list next up gents we’ve got the timex fairfield this is quartz watch a simple clean good-looking watch has solid reviews but i really bought it for this particular reason and that is to say hey how does this compare to vincero if you look at this watch right here and you compare it to a vincero you’re like ah they’re pretty darn close but why would you pay 70 bucks more for vincero and by the way they did not sponsor this video guys i wanted to see for myself and guess what vinceros are better in my opinion when i look at the design the thickness the overall build of the strap much better on the vincero when i look at the dial when i look at the detail they paid attention to right underneath the glass the vincero blew this thing out of the water is the timex still a great deal yes it’s a hundred bucks vincero 170 or you can get it cheaper if you use a discount code which i will put down in the description my point being is all you guys that bash fashion watches do you actually own the various watches that you’re talking about have you ever looked at them i have and i can tell you that a lot of these fashion watches especially vincero are doing a solid job yes you may think you can get a better deal with the seiko well i’ve got a lot of seikos here and i’ll tell you that some of these psychos the quality i’m just not impressed with give me hate down in the comments i i will listen and i’ll respond but i’m still not going to change my stance because i go out there and i put my money where my mouth is and i compared the two and yeah the vincero blew the timex out of the water next up we’ve got the timex nava harbor 38 in black it’s got a black canvas strap 38 millimeters across a little bit of a smaller watch but i really like this one this one down to 100 meters water resistance it’s going to be quartz as well can easily find this one under 200 and yeah i just like the all black look they do make some good looking watches especially when they’re inspired from their past next up i’ve got the seiko 5 snk 793 if your max budget is a hundred bucks this is a solid watch it’s something that if you’re getting your first kind of dress watch and you want a metal band then yeah this will suffice but if you’ve got a bit more if you could maybe save up 300 i would highly recommend you go with the sarb 0 33 why this one just feels so much better i think it’s just you know from the band is is where it’s at when you hold these right up next to each other you do see the difference again this one’s going to be three to four times the cost of this one right here so you’ve got to make a determination what’s your budget and where can you go with but it’s a nice watch and and so i’ll recommend it i’ll keep it on this list but i would recommend maybe looking to trade up now is a shaky band always a bad thing i would say no and in fact it’s perfectly fine for this seiko 5 which is the sports dive watch and i absolutely love this one i’ve had it now for closing in on two years it is a solid watch it looks good classic if you just want a simple dive watch type style and you’ve got about 200 to spend definitely check out the seiko 5 sport next up let’s talk about the watch i’ve been wearing throughout this video and right now is my current favorite and that is the snk p27 and this is their recraft series i just like this watch it’s unique so you notice this the shape we’ve got that square i love the green dial just absolutely beautiful the way it plays with the light and the band i think that they did a great job paying attention to the details on the band now this watch normally sells for quite a bit more than 200 bucks but you’ll find it on sale it’s not in high demand i think it is an excellent watch especially if you’ve got a little bit smaller or a medium sized wrist this is going to fit you perfectly fine next up what if you want a cheap dive watch you’re not going to cry if you lose it if you break it and at the same time you want the whole dive watch look you want that analog look well guess what right here cassio has you covered i bought this watch a while back and i have to say that initially i thought i was like ah this is overly cheap because i’m comparing it to rolex and stuff like that but whenever i started wearing this thing i’m like this is a nice fun simple watch and that’s why it’s on this list very affordable you look around 20 bucks and it’s just a good watch it tells accurate time now you know it doesn’t i wouldn’t go diving with this thing but it definitely is something you can go swimming with no problem and it’s a good looking watch next up we’ve got a couple g-shocks we’ve got the g7 900 and the g9000 what i like about this one right here is just it’s a great stopwatch i’m practicing sprinting with my son actually he’s doing the sprinting i’m timing him so i wear this whenever we go to the track we’re in the ymca running laps and i can just time him accurately and i like it it’s a larger watch next up the g9000 this one i wear whenever i’m going to the pool with my daughters we play this game where i set the timer um you know start the stopwatch throw the watch and they go grab it and bring it back to me so i’ve just got good memories it’s a good i just like the look too the reds right here on the outside with the black it’s just smaller than a lot of my other g-shocks and is a good-looking watch that gets the job done now if those are too small for you look at the master of g mudmaster and this one right here has a lot more features than the other watches i just showed you again it’s a g-shock a larger one we’re talking about like 52 millimeter across what’s cool about this though is it doesn’t feel that large but if you look around you definitely can find this for under 200 bucks and it’s just a fun cool watch maybe this would probably be the watch i would go to if yeah the uh it hits the fan and i need you know i need i’m a little bit of a prepper so yeah maybe i take this watch with me i take that back i’d probably go with this watch if it was the end of the world because it’s got the eco drive this is the citizen promaster pro diver and it is a solid watch very functional also very affordable comes in a nice package again what i love about this is unless we do something and we block out the sun this thing is just going to keep on going and it really does a great job of very quickly being able to take a charge just a solid watch yes you could go diving with a lot of people talk about this watch and if you wanted to even step up the style part of it change out this you know the silicone band and actually get something that’s made out of metal you’re good to go next up we’ve got the phoebus px002b and i love this one just because of the color and the overall look the logo that phoebus chose i think is awesome especially for a dive watch and i’ve just found that this thing is accurate it’s beautiful i love that little stone right there at the top on the bezel just a good looking solid watch again i’m a huge dive watch fan so let’s keep going next up we’ve got the invictus pro diver this one’s got the two-tone with gold and steel a good looking watch except for the logos i mean functionally this is fine and i think overall you know it’s just a cool looking watch except for that logo that’s in your face over on the side that is my issue with it and that’s why i do recommend another company l’oreal so i’ve talked about these guys before not many people have heard of l’oreal i need to give a hat tip to jody over at just one more watch for turning me onto l’oreal and yeah they’ve got sapphire glass and i just love the overall design now of course it looks just like a rolex submariner but what’s interesting is that most people if you were to show them the rolex and the loreal they wouldn’t be able to tell the difference if it wasn’t for the logo that yeah clearly says l’oreal now if you were to show them a sterling they would easily be able to tell the difference between this and a rolex these guys don’t try to be rolex and i think it’s really those big numerals right there what sets this apart it’s a little bit more of a clunkier watch a little bit larger at 42 millimeters i have to admit i don’t wear this very often but it has been a solid watch that i would recommend you add maybe to your collection now let’s talk about some brands that i don’t own but i’m still going to recommend them because again and again i see them on the top list of watches that are a great deal under 200 i looked at all the reviews online so if you want an aviator watch if you want something that looks a little bit more complicated check out the nighthawk this is made by citizen again and again i see this popping up on list after list of the best watches out there or maybe just a flight chronograph check out this steel black dial made by seiko beautiful watch right here yes you’re going to find it sometimes just over 200 but look around you can probably find some really good deals out there now if you can’t find that for under 200 bucks and you got to stick under that budget check out the casio edifice chronograph a great looking watch very similar in style to the last watch i just talked about so what video to watch next jets my entire watch collection right here
