An In Depth Armitron Watches Review
Hello everyone, today we’re taking a brief look at Armitron watches, a popular brand in the US that’s starting to get a bit more traction here in the UK. They mainly focus on affordable timepieces and have a huge range of styles and designs available. Personally, they remind me of Akribos watches which you may have also heard of.
Are Armitron Watches Good?
So are Armitron watches actually any good? That’s what a lot of people really want to know. Armitron are a US watch brand that was founded in 1956 by Eugen Gluck. Whilst they are better known in the US market they are now starting to become known in the UK watch market. Head here to learn about the history of Armitron watches.
Armitron builds watches for the mass market aiming to have a huge selection of affordable watches available in a range of styles and designs. Sure, you aren’t going to find affordable Swiss watches here, and they won’t be featuring in our best watches under £500 either, but that’s not really who they cater for. If you’re after a nice looking watch that won’t break the watch, then that’s what they’re perfect for, they don’t have the best specifications but hopefully, that’s not really what you’re after.
All in all, for the market that Armitron aim for, I’d say they are good watches. If you want an impressive business or dress style watch or even a rugged outdoor watch, then these likely aren’t for you. But if you need something for day to day wear in the office, or a sports watch for your weekend they are ideal. They’re suitable for the audience they’ve gone after and offer pretty fair value for money in my opinion.
