Watches are accessories that are as practical as they are fashionable — and they’re the No. 1 piece of jewelry that shows the world that you’re finally a responsible, level-headed, usually-on-time grown-up.
What’s not so practical, though, is the price of some timepieces. Brands have capitalized on the symbolism behind a well-made watch and introduced them as luxury items to fawn over. (See: Graff: The Hallucination, a watch that goes for a whopping $55 million and is sold at a store called The Billionaire Shop, no less.)
But you don’t need to spend thousands of dollars for a piece that tells time and accentuates your success #adulting. We’ve listed different styles of watches that ring in for $100 or less — so you’ll definitely have enough of your paycheck left over to contribute to your 401K like the responsible, watch-wearing adult you are.
