You can tell a lot about a man by the wristwatch he owns.
Should the colour of the dial match that of his luxury yacht, for example, you can be fairly sure he’s a man with expensive taste. Just as you can tell that someone sporting a Snoopy emblem encased in a gnarled piece of plastic they once won from a video arcade is probably the sort of man who still lives in the basement of his mum’s house.
Still, watches are more than gaudy gauges of wealth - pick wisely and you don’t need to fork out gargantuan sums on a wristwatch to prove you’re a cultured and style savvy man-about-town.
There are some truly tremendous and smartly designed timepieces out there for much, much less than you’d think. So with gifting season almost upon us we thought it about time to select 15 of the best watches under £100.
