FLUD The Moment-Gold Linked
FLUD has expanded their brand to include wallets, glasses and several other accessories but their bread and butter is still the watch. There will never come a time where a gold watch is not classic. Until you can afford the gold Rolex, try The Moment. It comes with an interchangeable leather strap and is water resistant up in up to three atmospheres.
Timex Expedition Rugged Field
Timex is known for their inexpensive yet stylish pieces and this one falls right into that category. The Expedition Rugged Field features an Indiglo Night Light with a wooden dial surrounded by a metal casing and a tough leather band. The watch lives up to its name, but is also versatile in the sense that it can be worn in various settings from the block to a casual dinner. The Expedition is also water-resistant up to 50 meters.
Casio Medium Silver G Shock
Rubber G Shock watches are as ubiquitous as 2 Chainz guest spots these days. If you want a Casio that will stand out, try this old school flavored piece. The silver preppy watch features a 1/100 Stopwatch, alarm, LED light, Auto Calendar, and is water resistant.
Nooka Zub Zenh 20 Deep Blue
Nooka watches are very different in that they show time in a unique manner using combination of rows as opposed to conventional digital or analog readout. The Zub Zen comes in several colors and is different from just about anything else on the market. In addition to featuring an alarm and chronograph mode, this piece is a plus for the earthy types, because it comes in a food grade silicone case that can be reused.
KR3W Phantom Black
Matte finish has been hot for a minute. From vehicles to college football helmets, the flat paint style is everywhere, so why not watches. Skate brand KR3W makes the Phantom in a variety of colors, but the Black Matte is the hottest by far. The low-key styling will surely demand a second look in just about any setting. Not bad for 50 bucks.
