Another recommendation from our editors is the Seiko Presage range. This range is very versatile and all their watches can either be dressed up or down, making them a perfect timepiece. Presage creates a unique line that delivers Japanese beauty, quality, and long-lasting performance by fusing a Japanese sense of aesthetics with traditional craftsmanship and Seiko's mechanical watchmaking expertise. The range starts from £350 and goes up to £4,100, so there is a watch to suit all budgets. The Presage range is timeless and comes in 6 different style ranges such as Sharp Edge, Cocktail time, Style 60s, Zen Gardens, Takumi and Eternal. Each with their own twist on the style.

The last recommendation from our editors is the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Quarts. TAG Heuer is a Swiss luxury watchmaker that designs, manufactures and markets watches and fashion accessories. TAG Heuer watches are stylish, precise, and very popular because of their exquisite workmanship. TAG Heuer is a trusted brand within the watch industry, so purchasing one of their watches is a no-brainer. Our editors specifically recommended The TAG Heuer Formula 1 Quarts due to its water-resistant design as it is guaranteed to 200 meters due to its highly resistant sapphire crystal. This sports watch features a black dial in a brushed steel case. The 41 mm case is brushed stainless steel matched with a steel black PVD unidirectional turning bezel and screw-down crown. The look is sporty, urban, and fearless. But overall, this watch is very affordable, considering its great brand and design. It costs £1,050.
