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.
If you’re after more affordable watches check out my best 50 watches under £50.
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.
This very affordable Casio watch is first on our list and won’t set you back much at all. It’s a relatively simple timepiece with a reliable quartz movement. For those who like more traditional sized watches, you’ll be pleased to hear this black Casio watch has a 35mm casing diameter. With its comfortable resin band and simple style this is sure to be a popular choice.
2. Casio F-91W Digital Watch with Resin Strap View on Amazon
When it comes to looking at the best affordable watches, it would be silly to miss out this incredibly popular digital Casio watch. The Casio F-91W is for those who love retro performance timepiece. The watch actually has quite a lot of handy features, a shatter resistant acrylic window, alarm, stop watch, and back light. With its reliable quartz movement, you’ll get accurate timekeeping too. I’m going to add in a Casio F 91W review soon too due to its popularity.
3. Casio MQ24/7B Unisex Quartz Watch with White Dial Analogue Display and Black Resin Strap View on Amazon
This is another very affordable timepiece from Casio yet again, they seem to have a bit of a knack for making some of the best cheap watches available. This Casio watch is a slight colour variant on the first watch featured, the difference being this model features a white dial instead of black. It has the same 35mm casing diameter and protective acrylic dial window. It has a Japanese quartz movement that offers accuracy and reliability.
4. Casio Unisex Watch Casio Collection MQ-24-1BLLGF View on Amazon
Up next is another popular Casio quartz watch. This is a unisex model with a slightly smaller case with a diameter of 33mm, this would look a little small on most men so do keep that in mind. The watch has both a 12 hour and 24 hour numerals written around the outside of the dial. Just like the previous watches it has a nice quartz movement that’s very reliable.
5. Akribos XXIV AK736BK 45mm Metal Case Black Steel Bracelet Synthetic Sapphire Men’s Watch View on Amazon
I was actually recently sent quite a few watches from Akribos to take a look through. I have to admit the pictures honestly don’t do these justice. This watch is a bit bigger than those featured so far, it has a large 45mm casing diameter making it quite big. The hands are coated in lume making them easier to read in dim lit conditions and the watch is powered by a Swiss quartz movement for excellent accuracy.
6. SHARK Mens LED Date Day Black Sport Military Stainless Steel Alarm Quartz Wrist Watch SH105 View on Amazon
Shark are another brand I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing recently and was quite pleased with it for the money. This watch has a nice large 50mm casing diameter making it a truly oversized watch, something I know a lot of people out there like. The only thing I would say this watch lacks is a good enough water resistance rating in my opinion. For a sports style watch I would expect more than 30m water resistance, maybe that’s just me though.
7. Casio MRW-200H-1BVEF Men’s Quartz Watch with Black Dial Analogue Display and Black Resin Strap View on Amazon
Another popular affordable Casio timepiece is the MRW-200H-1BVEF. This is a nice sturdy watch with a very reliable quartz crystal movement for accurate timekeeping. The watch also features a shatter resistant plastic window lens, and an impressive 100m water resistance rating. This is a keen contender for best value on this list.
8. So & Co New York Madison Men’s Quartz Watch with Black Dial Analogue Display and Black Stainless Steel Bracelet 5102.3 View on Amazon
So & Co are one of my favourite affordable watch brands at the moment. I’m just very impressive with their stylish designs and great prices. This model has a very nice and comfortable mesh style strap that I’m quite the fan of. The water resistance rating isn’t anything to shout about at 30m but then again, I don’t consider this that type of watch so I wasn’t expecting much. I do like this whole minimalist style to the dial design with the slim baton hour markers and watch hands.
9. Casio Men’s Quartz Watch MTP-1370PL-1AVEF View on Amazon
Casio have done it yet again, this time with an affordable day & date display watch. Day date watches typically have the day of the week and the date of the month on show on the dial. I quite like the positioning of everything on the dial too, the way the hour hand leaves just enough room between its point and the hour markers is a nice little touch. With a reliable quartz movement and 50m water resistance rating, this could be ideal for most people.
Sekonda’s take at a primarily all black watch is this 3346.27. It’s a nice smart timepiece with a really simple dial design. There’s a handy date display at the 6 o’clock position, whilst the hour markers are represented by these slim batons. The croco grain genuine leather strap is also great for those who aren’t a fan of stainless steel straps.
11. Sekonda Men’s Quartz Watch with Black Dial Chronograph Display and Black Leather Strap 1051.27 View on Amazon
Number 11 is another popular Sekonda watch that I’ve featured on other top lists in the past. It has this beautiful PVD rose gold plating on the casing that blends beautifully with the black of the dial and bezel. I love the detailing of the chronograph movement as well as the red second hand which adds an extra bit of definition to the design.
12. Accurist Men’s Quartz Watch with Black Dial Analogue Display and Black Leather Strap MS1044B View on Amazon
Accurist’s take on a cheap affordable black watch is this rather nice looking timepiece. It blends a gold PVD plated casing with a black dial and bezel. The watch features a day and date display along with a generous amount of lume on the hands and hour markers for easy reading at night. With a reliable quartz movement and 50m water resistance rating it would be a nice day to day watch.
13. Timex Original Unisex Quartz Watch with Analogue Display and Black Leather Strap View on Amazon
I love the design of this all black timepiece from Timex. Now, to be fair I wouldn’t be expecting to be able to read this too much when it’s dark, it just isn’t going to happen. This is more of a style timepiece that you’d match up to an outfit than actually try to read all the time. The watch functions with a decent quartz movement and is ideal for those who favour fashion over usage.
14. Ice-Watch Sili Forever Black Small Silicone Watch SI.BK.S.S View on Amazon
Next up is a great edition from Ice. I love this brand, they normally have a huge selection of colourful watches but this time round we’re specifically looking at black watches. This model is great for those who like to have a bit of fun, it has this large easy to read dial with a cyclopes magnifier above the date display. The silicone strap offers some extra comfort and the 50m water resistance rating means it can withstand a long day.
15. Timex Original Unisex Quartz Watch with Black Dial Analogue Display and Black Nylon Strap – T2N647PF View on Amazon
The last watch to feature in this list of affordable timepiece is another reliable Timex watch. Timex are a well known very affordable brand that produce a large range of efficent timepiece. I particularly like the fabric strap on this model as it offers something a bit different from the rest on today’s list.
