Buying a watch can be … intimidating. You have to consider price, size, style and with a plethora of options available, where to start? If your Rolex dreams are unlikely to come true this year, why not turn to affordable watch brands that make great pieces at an affordable price? Yes, hitting a luxury watch is a dream, but when you fantasize about Cartier’s iconic Crash watch, time only goes slower. Think about it: branding a unique watch without spending more than $ 200? Seems like a good deal to me.
While iconic watchmakers set the bar high for excellence, smaller, emerging brands are worth watching – they keep the pulse of the industry by producing cutting-edge styles that won’t break the bank. . Check out these watches available from brands that we are really behind.
Vanna LA Umbra Emerald
Are you looking for a brand that challenges the status quo? Vanna does exactly that. Designed in Los Angeles, these pieces strike a balance between elegance and utility with their remarkable designs.
Founded by brother-sister duo Shabeena and Amir Beeghani, BREDA had a rich history before becoming its own entity. This family business was founded in 2009, but its roots go back to the 1950s, when their grandfather started selling watches in India when the market was empty.
If style isn’t enough, knowing that Amalys is donating part of its profits to organizations supporting LGBTQ + rights and women’s empowerment should be a reason to buy this brand.
Time will tell Clear Olive watches
I mean, have you ever seen a watch like this? Designed by the late Stewart Unger, this watch exudes individuality. Today, Unger’s right-hand man, Stacey Hoover, keeps the dream alive by expanding what was originally available in six colors to 25 unique combinations. Light olive happens to be a favorite, but take a look at the other colors available, you won’t be disappointed.

With self-expression being the driving force behind Storm Watches, there is no need to further explain why you should take a look. I know we thought we had flying cars now, but I’m going to settle for these futuristic pieces that are anything but conventional.

Project Watches unveils the BRASS watch
What I find most interesting about this watch: The message behind its design. It was created to remind you how important it is to live in the present. As the wearer looks at the fading glass over the past and future hours, they are called to remember that what matters most is the present moment.
