If you wear a watch (and yes, we know some people don’t), you know that your watch becomes part of you. You look at it frequently, sometimes without even thinking about it, and you feel something’s missing if you’re not wearing it.

Why We Chose It Made by one of the oldest brands of Swiss watchmakers, Revue Thommen, this Diver watch is water resistant to 300 meters. The sales price is a huge discount from the list price of $2,550. The case is stainless steel with a leather band, and the watch also has a calendar function. The 42-mm-diameter case houses an automatic movement, and the watch carries a one-year guarantee.
Why We Chose It Paying 10 percent of the list price is a solid bargain to us. And this Swiss watch has a story. The Aurora name refers to a rumored stealth airplane that might or might not have been tested in the 1980s, and the black-on-black color scheme reflects the idea of a phantom plane. On the back of the watch case, there’s an engraving of the triangular-shaped Aurora plane, based on popular concepts. Water resistant to 100 meters, the watch has quartz movement.
Why We Chose It With its mix of metal colors, the Artena watch exudes elegance and declares you’re a success. (And you’re smart because you picked this watch up for almost $700 off.) It’s made by Eterna, another Swiss manufacturer that has been making timepieces since the mid-1800s. Water-resistant to 30 meters, this watch has a quartz movement. The case is 40 mm in diameter and 9 mm thick. The band is leather.
Why We Chose It Elliot Brown is a British watchmaker known for building watches that are worthy of adventure, no matter what kind of harsh elements you expose them to. This Bloxworth model is water resistant to 200 meters. The back of the watch case and the buckle both show the shield-shaped logo of Elliot Brown. The watch, with a 2-year-guarantee, features a quartz movement and leather bracelet. The price is a little more than half off.
