At Marie Claire, we believe watches are essential. We're all about women who move quickly and need to keep tabs on the time while looking effortlessly stylish. But it can be hard to find a watch that fits every occasion. Leather bands often suit casual situations rather than black-tie evenings, and styles with a little bling can be a bit too extra for vacation. There exist luxury watches for milestones in your life (when you finally get the promotion!), engagement watches (some couples are trading in rings for matching timepieces!), not to mention workout watches—the list goes on and on. But if you have multiple shoes for all those occasions, why not a watch wardrobe? And 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.
