In this technological day and age, the watch serves more as an accessory than a functional piece used for keeping track of time. Today the watch is an accent for an outfit, often coordinating with other colors and textures the person is wearing. Nonetheless, the watch is still a worthy investment, and every man should own at least one. A watch can complete any outfit and add a level of maturity to your wardrobe. Offering various styles and functionalities, these 50 watches are the best under $500.
