The 16 Best Affordable Mechanical Watches

Post by Racer-X » August 15th 2020, 8:17am

"Mechanical watches (which include both the hand-winding and automatic variety) have seen a huge uptick in popularity in the last several years, and this considering that battery-powered quartz movements are more cheap and ubiquitous than ever, and smartwatches are seen on more and more wrists as time goes by.

While producing a mechanical wristwatch can be an expensive proposition, the proliferation of relatively inexpensive but high-quality Japanese movements has meant that smaller boutique brands finally have a way to craft affordable hand-winding and automatic timepieces, while the larger brands can make this technology affordable with large-scale production. Whether you’re looking to gift someone a diver or a dress watch, there’s an affordable mechanical watch out there for everybody."

Nothing really to argue much with in that list. The only issue is wondering how they chose those from the pretty extensive list of decent low-cost autos available

Throw 100 model names in hat, draw a few out, write article. Repeat yearly.
