The world’s most stylish watches tend to be the ones with the highest price tags. That’s not to say that you can’t pick up something great for a little less than you might have thought – you just need to shop around a bit. Oh wait, we’ve done that for you.
Hamilton – Jazzmaster Auto Chrono
A classic design and build, the Hamilton Jazzmaster sets itself apart with a series of special design touches – arrow head indices being one, the oversized chronograph face another – but ultimately, it’s a timelessly styled, well constructed watch, available at a reasonable price.
Burberry – The Britain BBY1351 GMT Automatic (black)
Taking its lead from the brand’s iconic trench coat, Burberry’s Britain is a celebration of innovation and craftsmanship. The link continues in the watch’s design, as the D-rings from the coat inspire the shape of the bezel, and in the quality of the build, which features a titanium case, sapphire crystal face and Luminova hands and indices. Despite its British heritage, the watch is Swiss Made, which is no bad thing.
