Our buying guide, The Best Men’s Watches Under $200, looks to up your watch game by offering you watch options that have some specs that you may have missed in our buying guide that featured men’s watches under $100. In this guide, you’ll start to see watches that include updated styling, Swiss movements, better water resistance, and higher quality bands.
Some details to keep in mind. For the most part, if a watch does not have a water resistance 100 meters or more, I would look to avoid water altogether. If it’s rated at 100 meters, it should be OK in the shower, or for a quick dip in the pool. If it comes with a leather band, though, I wouldn’t risk it. Leather and water just don’t go together.
