In menswear, it's often the details that really bring an outfit to life. One of the most time-tested ways: a great watch. And while a timepiece can certainly be a lifelong investment—take this one, which costs 23,000 dollars, for example—it can also be a simple accessory that wears easily and doesn't require an entire paycheck to afford. Here are 12 picks that all ring up at P20,000 or less.
