Weekend Beatup Watch

Sometimes you just need a watch that you don't give a shit about. I picked up a pretty inexpensive River Island watch earlier this year before a long trip abroad, because I didn't want to risk losing or damaging my nicer watches, and two months of heavy travel is not easy on a watch. After logging thousands of hours on that watch, it's starting to look a little beat up and the strap is starting to fray, but who cares? I paid $35 for it and it still gives me the correct time. What more do you need from a watch when you are looking for a casual one that you can let get beat up?

Here are a few options that look great, and won't upset you if you lose or break them:

Timex - Weekender - $40 -

Military Watch Co. - Black Metal Vietnam - $58 -

River Island - Blue Nautical Stripe Watch - $39.98 -

Nitro - Gary - $19.50 -

Remember, this isn't suppose to be something you will pass down to your children. All you need is something that tells time and looks good with most of what you wear. 


  1. Love them. Especially the Timex one.

  2. What beautiful time pieces! A great gift for my dad!! I'll have to look into it more for Father's Day!
