This may come as a surprise, but you don’t necessarily need to spend more than 10,000 INR on a watch, and it is not a must that said timepiece has numerous complications, nine dials, hidden features and the ability to tell you the current relative positions of the planets in our solar system. What a watch must do, however, is service the wearer and complement their lifestyle
Yes, generally, high-end watches will perform to a higher level, employ more expensive materials and exhibit more detailed finishing, but this does not mean that there aren’t superb wristwatches in any price bracket if you know what to look for. This is where we guide to the best watches at a reasonable price. We have done the digging for you, to make sure that, whatever you decide to invest, your watch serves you right and looks the part.
1. Swatch Sistem Dark
Back in 2014, to mark its 30th birthday, Swatch did something remarkable. It created the Sistem51, an automatic mechanical watch movement with exactly 51 parts, which just so happened to be the same number of components employed in the company’s first quartz watch. To industrialise a self-winding movement is impressive, to make it with so few parts is almost unbelievable. As is the price. Our current pick? The stealthy Sistem Dark with 30 metres water resistance to protect that innovative movement.
2. Casio G-Shock Classic
G-Shock’s most popular oversize analogue/digital series has been reinvented. Based on the Hyper Complex G Shock design, the Punching Pattern collection has a sporty new strap, which is good as the 200-metre waterproofing makes this watch good for pro diving. The oversized buttons have a checkered anti-slip surface, while the 1/1000-second stopwatch, 100 lap memory, world-timer, five alarms and auto light features, where the watch face illuminates when you tilt your wrist towards you, should serve in almost all rugged pursuits.
3. Baume & Mercier’s Clifton Club In Bronze
The sportier family of Baume & Mercier gets a distinguished look with an all new edition in bronze. Exemplifying one of the biggest trends of the year, these Clifton Club bronze watches come in four dial versions—black, brown, blue and green—with two strap options for each, in either calfskin or rubber. The comfortably-sized 42mm bronze case is water resistant to 100m, and houses a Swiss-made automatic movement that offers a 42-hour power reserve. There is also a date feature at three o’clock. With the hands and riveted applied indexes infused with Super-LumiNova, the dial, which has a recessed centre, displays the brand’s emblem proudly at 12 o’clock.
4. Titan Regalia Chronograph
Titan watches are some of the most popular and best-selling ones in the market. This watch is characterized by its stainless steel silver and gold color design. This gives it the appearance of a luxury watch. And not just the appearance, but the quality too. The chronograph quartz display is stylish and attractive. This watch is made from strong material. It has a high user rating on Amazon, based on hundreds of reviews. That’s why you can trust it as one of the best watches for men in India. Key Features include a silver-colored dial, round-shaped case, Quartz movement type, Chronograph display, Stainless steel case material and a 30 meter water resistance.
5. Fastrack Black Magic
Fastrack is another top brand for watches in India. If you’re somewhat intimidated the prices of men’s watches on this list, then this will be a refreshing option for you. It’s cheaper than the other watch; it’s a great budget option for a men’s watch. Despite being lower priced, it has a great design and quality. It has a simple analog design and a brown leather band. The design is not too complicated, it has a very clean look. This makes the watch look minimal and stylish. Key Features are a round case, mineral glass material, black dial, a brown leather band and an analog display.

The Existential Crisis Of Fashion Industry
The words Covid and crisis are going hand in hand since the past few days. Similarly, the situation has brought an Existential Crisis to Fashion Industry. Read the how and what about it in this post.
The Existential Crisis Of Fashion Industry
What is an Existential Crisis?
It is a phase when an individual questions the purpose, meaning and values of their life. In this case, it is the whole of fashion industry who is facing this crisis. It is not necessarily a negative phase. However, it comes close to depressive disorders and conditions.
Why is there an Existential Crisis In Fashion Industry?
In the pandemic and post pandemic era, a lot of things are being questioned and believes are in process of refining themselves. The essential industries are in demand at the moment and things like fashion are not really the concern right now. Therefore, the priorities of people are changing.
More and more people who are providers of fashion are having a similar complaint. For example, No one wants to buy new clothes or be up to date on the fashion trends while they are locked in their homes. In addition, other major changes in the fashion industry are that the productions have stopped, the shops are not opening, there are no buyers even if you are willing to provide. The overall demand of fashion gone down.
In conclusion, all of this has brought an existential crisis to the fashion industry.
In addition, talking particularly about India, people here are obsessed with the quality and durability of fabrics. This of course, cannot be known without touching and feeling the fabric. So, there is little substitute for the physical buying and shopping.
Being in Style
All fashion lovers will agree that there are somethings that will never go out of fashion. However, in this industry, most things are those which go out of fashion. There is a specific time for each fashion trend. Just like people don’t go shopping for sweaters and shawls in winter, people may not buy the existing fashion produced after the lockdown is open.
Rather than gaining nothing, retailers are putting the existing stocks on sale at heavy discounts. Though there are some gains, the losses are a lot more. Therefore, the returns that people are getting against fashion products are too little.
Change in Choices
There is a change in the kinds of apparels that buyers now prefer to have. Purchases in the lounge wear section have increased a lot. On contrary, those mass produced due to high demands are left in the warehouses. Since the sales have gone down and there is a lock- down, brands have reduced advertising or completely stopped it. Therefore, there is a crisis for advertisers as well.
Newer Ways of Promotion
The industry and its stakeholders are coming up with new ways to keep the consumers engages. For instance, check out The Best Of Met Gala Challenge.
In this way, stakeholders are making sure that though fashion consumption has gone down the craze of fashion remains intact.
The industry to keep its existence intact is accommodating newer things. For instance, coming up with new ideas of sustainable fashion. In addition, most brands are getting in production of masks and safety essentials that are currently the need of the hour.
