The Watchlist: up to £250

  1. SWATCH SISTEM51

    Swatch might be known best for its quartz movements, but this one’s mechanical, and put together from 51 components (hence the name) by an army of robots. Excellent value.

    £111; shop.swatch.com/gb

  2. SUPERDRY SCUBA SYG110B

    From the people who styled a special edition Morgan 3Wheeler comes this all-black watch, with a triple calendar that looks like a chronograph.

    £99.99; superdry.com

  3. CITIZEN BV1085-14E

    Military-style watch with fabric strap, black ion-plated case, yellow lume with second subdial and eco-drive solar power, meaning there’s never any need to change the battery.

    £134; thewatchhut.co.uk

  4. DANIEL WELLINGTON CANTERBURY ROSE

    This new brand from Sweden has whipped up a classic slimline watch, fitted with James Bond-style NATO webbing straps in a choice of colours.

    £111; danielwellington.com

  5. BULOVA HACK

    In WW2 soldiers would ‘hack’ the second hand to stop it ticking, in order to synchronise watches. This is a reissue of American brand Bulova’s classic original, though it’s quartz rather than mechanical.

    £95; bulova.com

  6. UNIFORM WARES 103

    Minimalist future classic from newish British brand Uniform Wares. Walnut-brown strap and dial, with matte-lacquered aluminium hands framed by a 33mm gunmetal case.

    £120; uniformwares.com

  7. KENNETH COLE KC1982

    Stainless steel 40mm case, automatic movement, power-reserve indicator, black leather strap. With this thing on your wrist, you’ll look like a plutocrat for less than two hundred quid.

    £165; kennethcole.com
