Your phone may suffice when it comes to checking the time throughout the day — but let’s face it, a wristwatch just adds a certain something to an outfit. And whether you’re a minimalist who likes a watch with no numbers, or a traditionalist who likes a classic brown leather strap, a great watch doesn’t have to cost too much. Case in point: this timeless (sorry) Timex number that has a brown, crocodile-textured leather strap and a very readable face, which is currently on sale for 30 percent off, bringing the price down to a very reasonable $22. Though it’s cheap, it’s not fragile: In fact, it’s waterproof-enough that you won’t have to worry about splashing it as you wash your hands for the millionth time of the day (just don’t wear it directly into, say, a pool, per Timex’s advice).
