Watches have changed in their use over time. When originally created, they were meant simply to tell time. But as technology has progressed and many of us are now able to see the time on our smartphones, watches have taken on more of a fashion aesthetic.

The right watch can accessorize any outfit perfectly, pulling the entire look together with an elegant, classy feel. But there is potentially one issue: watches can be very expensive. Depending on the style and brand of the watch that you choose, the price tag can skyrocket.
