While some swear by a “one-watch collection,” or a single timepiece they wear anytime and anywhere, that kind of discipline is hard to maintain. It’s especially difficult when great affordable watches are so easy to come by these days; watches from American icons like Timex, Swiss powerhouses like Tissot, and Japanese legends like Seiko are all available on Amazon, and are often discounted. Texas-based Fossil also makes sleek, classic, sub-$200 watches that can slot seamlessly into any collection, and right now, one of its best is over 40% off.

Fossil’s Minimalist Watch is one of the top 50 best-selling watches on Amazon, and it’s backed by over 7,000 five-star ratings from shoppers who say it’s an “incredible watch for the price.” Typically a modest $130, this quartz watch is up to 41% off right now, dropping the price to as low as $77. It’s available in a range of colors, many of which are also on sale for less than $85.

This Fossil watch lives up to its minimalist moniker. The watch doesn’t have a date window or sub-dials, and it utilizes stick indices instead of Roman or Arabic numerals, keeping the face simple yet easy to read. The 44mm case is substantial but ultra-slim, making it a great dress watch for the office. The watch features a traditional leather band and adjustable buckle closure. Available face colors include blue, gray, brown, and a tasteful off-white.

The refined style is a big part of the watch’s appeal, according to Amazon shoppers. “Beautiful classic watch,” a shopper said. “Would recommend it to someone looking for a classic and sleek watch that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg!” Similarly, another shopper called it a “beautiful, durable, minimalist watch,” writing, “I got this watch three months ago and have worn it almost every day since. The design is very good and minimalist. The numbers around the perimeter aren’t very big so you don’t notice them usually and it looks like a numberless face, which I prefer.”

The minimalist styling also means it can work in different settings. One shopper noted it was good for “work to evening,” dubbing it good for “everyday wear.” Another wrote, “I recently purchased it for my wedding,” adding that it “fits the occasion.”
