Not everyone wants to dish out thousands of dollars for an elegant watch.

Such is the case with these timepieces that we found from some of the most affordable watch brands on the internet. Every pick rings in under $200 (one costs as little as $84); has an enduring, sophisticated design; and is certain to pair well with everything in your closet.
