Top 10 analog 75-150 dollars
By Sander Tess
10. Invicta pro driver (22340)
Pro Driver is one of our less favorite Pro Driver watches, but we still think it's a good buy. Firstly, because it is water resistant up to a hundred meters. We also think the watch looks nice in the black and gold color combination. Besides these two things, the watch is only $80. Unfortunately, there are also a few things about this watch that we like less. First, we think the bezel is too big in relation to the rest of the watch. We are also not completely convinced of the watch strap. The watch gets very good reviews, namely an average of 4.7 at 4400 reviews. Of these 4400 reviews, only 3% gave the watch a 1 or 2.

9. Orient bambino version VI
In ninth place is the Orient Bambino Version IV Japanese Automatic Stainless Steel and Leather Dress Watch. We believe that is an impressive timepiece that is sure to impress. With its kind of classic design, this watch looks great on the wrist. But to be completely honest we like metal banded watches better, but we know there are a lot of people who disagree on that point. Probably mostly because of its more comfortable fit and that’s exactly why we also put a leather banded watch in our top 10.
Besides its leather band it has a stainless steel case which is solid. Some other nice features of this watch: The Bambino Version IV features an automatic movement with 21 jewels, as well as a power reserve of up to 40 hours. The watch also features a date window at the 3 o'clock position and a sapphire crystal for added protection.
Overall, this watch is mainly a great choice for anyone looking for a classic, elegant watch which is really comfortable.
8. Michael Kors Bayvill chronograph watch
In our opinion, this watch from the exclusive brand Michael Kors
has a sporty yet exclusive look. The sporty look is mainly due to all the small numbers and stripes in the dial ring and the subdials. But as already mentioned, we also think that it has an exclusive look, this is due to the color used with this watch and the brand. The Michael Kors brand stands for its expensive but stylish products. This watch, on the other hand, is affordable. The prices vary per color combination, but the price is always between 130 - 230 dollars.
The reviews are very positive, the watch gets a 4.7 out of five. About 350 people have written a review about this product, of which no less than 84% give it 5 stars. The watch is water resistant to 50 meters, which means that you can swim with it recreationally, but it is not suitable for diving. For more product specifications, please click below.
7. Fossil men's chronograph watch (FS4552IE)
In 7th place is this black watch from Fossil. Fossil is a well-known American watch manufacturer. What immediately stands out is of course the pattern on the bezel. This kind of diamond pattern gives it a special and chic look.
We find the color combination with this watch very suitable, in particular the small blue hands on the subdials fit well with it. Although it looks nice and chic, I must say that I find the case of the watch a bit too busy with all the white stripes, numbers and dots.
It is a very popular watch and it has more than 11000 reviews. It’s average score is a 4.7 out of five and the watch costs only $90.
Some nice features of this watch are: its water resistance (200 meters), the subdials and the possibility to have the watch customized at a local fossil store.
6. Invicta Pro Diver collection (0070)
In 6th place is this Invicta
pro diver watch. This invicta watch is also part of the pro diver series, but it looks a bit different than some other pro diver watches. First of all this watch does not have a coin edge, the watch strap is also different. We think this watch strap is less beautiful than, for example, the number 1 of the previous price category (which was also part of the prodriver series). Nevertheless, I still think this watch is beautiful and it certainly has a chic look. We believe that the silver combination provides the look for this particular watch. A nice detail with this watch is the Switzerland logo that is engraved in the 12 o'clock mark. Unlike the other pro diver watches, this watch is easier to adjust, which is of course very handy.
The watch is water resistant up to 200m and is therefore suitable for professional water sports activities and diving.
The average rating of this watch is a 4.6 which is 0.1 higher than most other pro driver watches. If your interested or just want more info, click below
5. Olevs automatic wrist watch (6633)
Another beautiful watch for a good price. This Olev watch in the silver blue colorway is one of our favorites in this price range. This is because, first of all, it has some really nice features. Examples of this are the subdial with the night and day function and the two date windows where you can see the month in addition to the year. In addition to having nice gadgets, the watch also looks very nice. We think it has a casual look and you can wear it under any outfit. Another nice thing about this watch is the Roman numerals used on the dial, the hands are also a work of art in themselves.
The reviews are fairly positive, namely a 4.4 out of approximately 130 reviews. However, the other watches from our top 10 usually receive more and even higher reviews. This is therefore the reason why this watch is not higher in this top 10.
4.Diesel Mega Chief watch
In our top four, for a reason, is this beautiful Diesel watch. We think they did a really good job designing this watch. There are many things we like about this watch. The thing we think is the best, is the part on the side of the case which says diesel 10 bar. We find this shape very attractive and original. Because you hardly ever see this with other watches and in our opinion this watch therefore scores very high for creativity.
Personally, we think the black on black colorway is the best. We believe that this has a very cool and almost futuristic look that will certainly set you apart from others. In addition to all this, diesel is a very well-known and chic brand.
There are many reviews about this product, namely 6000 and we are convinced that $ 140 (the price for the black colorway) is a very good price for such a watch.
3. Orient Japanese watch (FAA02005D9)
In third place is this Orient watch. It is a timepiece that packs a serious punch. With its unique combination of modern design and technological advancements, we believe that this watch is really handy for any dive enthusiast. The watch itself is sleek and durable, made from stainless steel and featuring a unidirectional rotating bezel and a screw-down caseback that ensures optimal water resistance up to 200 meters.
We believe that Its design stands out with its dark blue face and white numbers for easy legibility, along with a day and date display at the 3 o’clock position. Another nice thing about this watch is its combination of automation and hand-winding capabilities which further enhance the watch’s appeal.
Besides that, the watch has tons of other very useful features which is also the main reason why it is in our top 3.
So in short we believe that this watch looks really good and that it has a lot of very useful features. If you want to know more about this watch, please click here below.
2. Invicta pro diver (21865)
We think this is one of the most beautiful watches in this price category.
Everything is actually perfect, except that it's just not our favorite color combination
Firstly, we think the watch strap is simply beautiful. This is because we love metal watch straps and it has a small pattern on iit to finish it off. Also, as has been said many times, we love coinedges. In addition to these two things, we are also a fan of "the glow in the dark" hands and the date window used for this watch.
As you can see, the watch has a chic and stately appearance. At first glance, you'd probably think this watch is a lot more expensive than the $80 it actually costs. In addition to the fact that the watch looks beautiful and has a chic appearance, it is also useful for diving, as it is waterproof to a depth of 200 meters.
In short, we are convinced that it is a bargain. If you are considering buying this watch, or just want more info, click below.
In first place
1. Invicta Pro Diver (29177)
Now we’ve come to the best of the best. In our opinion this Invicta piece could be in a museum.
First of all, it is only 75 dollars Second, it looks just perfect: the coin edge, the black green color combo, the hands, the band. Third, it scores really good reviews. Its rating now is a 4,7 out of 5 from almost 1000 reviews. Fourth: it is made with modern technology, it was namely released in the year 2019. Fifth: it’s also water resistant.
What else could you want? Probably you have the feeling that you somehow recognise this watch, that is because it’s really similar with certain Rolex watches. Also the green silver color combo you see often by Rolex watches, and keep in mind that this one, is a hell of a lot cheaper.
