The entrée into “proper” watch collecting (whatever the hell that is) needn’t take the form of a high-end, mechanical watch. Hell, your first watch doesn’t have to be mechanical at all. It should be something that fits within your budget, something whose looks you enjoy, and something that makes you happy.
Here are five fun, affordable watches from Los Angeles-based MVMT. Whether you’re looking for a gift for a budding watch enthusiast, a weekend beater watch, or something you can travel with without worrying too much about, you can probably find an MVMT to fit the bill. (They make an automatic watch, too.)
