Best List of Classic Men’s Watches Under $500 [2013 Edition]

It’s hard to find that simple, classic watch that works for dress or play.  It’s even harder to find that watch at a reasonable price for those of us who are not considered “watch snobs”.  I gathered the coolest men’s watches for under five hundred dollars and threw them into a list so you can get that elegant look without spending thousands of dollars.  Of course, expensive watches are great too. If you have a bigger budget, we have a great list of Classic Bell & Ross watches for you as well.

ESQ Movado Watch, Men’s Swiss Leather Strap 42mm

When I walked into Macy’s the other day and saw these two watches I was shocked their price point was under $400. These Movado ESQ watches are $350 each. You can grab them at Macy’s. I’m not sure if I like the silver/black or the gold/brown. Either way, both are a good choice, especially with the alligator leather straps. [$350]

  Alessi Men’s AL18000 Tanto X Cambiare Watch

This watch was designed by Franco Sargiani who modeled it after the clocks of great European monasteries. If you can handle the 24hour time format on this watch you’ll get some frequent comments on the watch. Check out how cool this dial is. You can also get this watch with a white face and roman numerals which adds another twist to the design. [$240]

  Uniform Wares 203 Series Watch

I kept seeing pictures pop up of this watch all over the place, but it was VERY difficult to find out who made it or where to buy it. After running it through a Google image search I unveiled that it was the Uniform Wares 203 Series watch. This watch goes for about $434.


The World’s Largest Recycled Treehouse

Horace Burgess’s famous recycled treehouse reaches 97 feet in height and 12 feet wide at it’s base.  He claims the 10 story treehouse to be the largest treehouse in the world and no one has questioned him.  “I built it for everybody. It’s God’s treehouse. He keeps watch over it,” said Burgess, who got inspired in 1993 after a vision. “I was praying one day, and the Lord said, ‘If you build me a treehouse, I’ll see you never run out of material.”

Burgess used mostly recycled pieces of lumber from garages, storage sheds and barnsand is now on his 14th year of construction.  Even though it appears finished, he says he still has plans to expand his treehouse.
