At Marie Claire, we believe that watches are essential. But the watches of 2021, in some cases, are doing too much—tracking your steps, your texts, and the arrival of your firstborn. What if you want a watch that does less in the logistics department, and more in the style realm? Consider the watches in this round-up our gift to you. We've gathered the very best of luxury and budget, plus every material out there—from silicone and rubber to stainless steel and solid gold. And we've also tapped into current trends, like '80s throwbacks, tie dye, and colorblocked originals. While some timepieces are wildly lavish with the price tag to match, there are plenty of great everyday styles that won’t break the bank. Take a look at some of our favorites.
