The right watch can be the perfect finishing touch to any outfit, but a good one can be expensive. Don't let the cost of a designer watch deter you from buying one, though: There are plenty of affordable, high-quality options out there — and we've found five solid options, listed below..
For when you want something more practical than a Rolex but more stylish than a Fitbit, there’s the Morphic M41 Watch.

If you want a watch that's a little out of the box (or, out of this world), check out the Xeric Trappist-1 Moonphase Watch. It was designed by one of the most successful watch brands on Kickstarter, and features two Super-LumiNova planets that indicate hours and minutes on the dial, a center viewing window that shows the current moon phase, and Hesalite domed crystal (which just so happens to be the preferred watch crystal for all space missions). It might not be like going to outer space, but it's pretty close.

This limited-edition watch is engraved with a number between 001 to 999, giving you a unique opportunity to own something truly exclusive.
