So I noticed recently people were looking for ‘cheap black watches’ I’m not really sure what everyone else classes as cheap so I set the bar at £50. In today’s post I’ll be showcasing the 15 Best Cheap Black Watches Under £50 For Men. Hopefully there is something here for everyone. Quite a few well known brands made it in, including Casio, Sekonda, Accurist and more.
My favourite black watch in today’s list has to be number 8 So & Co I like the mesh straps they have along with the whole minimalist style of the dial. Let me know which one you’d go for in the comments below.
‘Nice little watch, does the job and looks fairly smart, the face is roughly the size of a £2 coin and just a little thicker, the watch is light and seems quite robust.’
2. Casio F-91W Digital Watch with Resin Strap £8.21
‘Cars break down, phones malfunction, computers get infected
but the F 91 soldiers on. Cheap and ubiquitous. Everybody seems to have owned one. Its “beep beep” woke thousands this morning.
It measured and guided their days all long. It has a stopwatch, a light, an alarm: This is what I need and all I need from a digital watch.
In moderate climes the battery will last for seven years (based on an alarm and one seconds’ worth of light use per day).
I wish my life was so efficient and so certain. I wish I was so dependable.’
3. Casio MQ24/7B Unisex Quartz Watch with White Dial Analogue Display and Black Resin Strap £7.00
‘I’ve had one of these for years. It’s functional and it looks good. It takes minutes to fit a new battery and they last. I always keep one as a spare. If you’re concerned about your carbon footprint you might worry that it is cheaper to buy a new one – at this price – than to replace the strap when it eventually wears out.’
4. Casio Unisex Watch Casio Collection MQ-24-1BLLGF £11.60
‘It is a great buy at the price. This is a no frills, lightweight, waterproof watch with a dial that is classic in design and easy to read and it also looks good on the wrist and it keeps good time. It was well packaged and arrived within the promised time frame.
I bought it as a cheap watch that I can take on holiday to the beach or swimming pool etc. and I would not mind too much if I lost it. However, I suspect I might be sorry if I do lose it, as I occasionally find myself wearing it to go out when I would normally wear my Omega or my Longines.’
5. Akribos XXIV AK736BK 45mm Metal Case Black Steel Bracelet Synthetic Sapphire Men’s Watch £48.99
‘This is a fantastic watch, it looks stunning and I frequently get positive comments from people saying they wish they could afford a watch like mine. The watch is a good weight, good quality and easy to adjust. Worn this for 6 months now and still looks like new’
6. SHARK Mens LED Date Day Black Sport Military Stainless Steel Alarm Quartz Wrist Watch SH105 £21.99
‘Very good watch but in my opinion it has one thing that could be changed…the metal strap with a leather one.’
7. Casio MRW-200H-1BVEF Men’s Quartz Watch with Black Dial Analogue Display and Black Resin Strap £19.97
‘What an awesome watch! I’ve had it for three and a half years and the strap started wearing down until it snapped off. I think this was due to pure carelessness on my part, than Casio’s amazing build quality. I can’t remember taking this watch off for anything other than taking a shower, I just didn’t want to take it off. A friend of mine made it his aim in life to crack/scratch the front face and he made numerous attempts with a pen, throwing it at a wall, stepping on it and even biting it. You could barely see a scratch on it and that annoyed him so much. He would be staring at my wrist from across the classroom, trying to figure out ways to destroy my watch but he just couldn’t.’
8. So & Co New York Madison Men’s Quartz Watch with Black Dial Analogue Display and Black Stainless Steel Bracelet 5102.3 £46.72
‘Really pretty watch, looks professional and classy, got many compliments!’
9. Casio Men’s Quartz Watch MTP-1370PL-1AVEF £27.26
‘Very pleased with this watch. Clear face, date and day (makes it easy to read at a glance). It’s a nice looking watch which feels comfortable on. Leather strap is stiff initially but quickly loosens up. Great value watch.’
‘I wanted a simple black face, black leather strap watch I could wear with a shirt and trousers to work but occasionally I’m lugging boxes for work so needed it to be potentially throw away if I broke it . I found myself drawn to a Tissot Prc or a Roamer, both needed £300 which isn’t expensive as far as watches go but is if I might brake it weeks into ownership. Then I found this, absolutely perfect watch. It looks smart with a suit which I’m in 80% of the time at work, build quality is pretty decent, looks crisp and simple. For the price, amazing is the right word to describe it. cheap a and cheerful yet simple, smart and good looking. Perfect for work if you need something at the smarter end of the scale’
11. Sekonda Men’s Quartz Watch with Black Dial Chronograph Display and Black Leather Strap 1051.27 £49.99
‘My husband love this watch I bought for him’
12. Accurist Men’s Quartz Watch with Black Dial Analogue Display and Black Leather Strap MS1044B £45.00
‘Great watch would recommend it. Looked even better when it arrived.’
13. Timex Original Unisex Quartz Watch with Analogue Display and Black Leather Strap £38.39
‘This is a really good looking well made & reliable watch Good price & nice big numbers which ate easy to read. Light for dark viewing is excellent. My husband is on his second one , not the watches fault he is a plumber & gives it plenty of abuse. Though the chrome wore off & face scratched badly after a year. Watch kept going accurately! strap stayed intact.’
14. Ice-Watch Sili Forever Black Small Silicone Watch SI.BK.S.S £46.62
‘This is the second ice watch that I have bought, I love them, they are fun, stylish and really comfortable to wear. I plan to get several in different colours to match all my outfits!’
15. Timex Original Unisex Quartz Watch with Black Dial Analogue Display and Black Nylon Strap – T2N647PF £34.00
