(SPOT.ph) A watch is a life essential—not only as a handy timekeeper that will help go about your busy day smoothly, but also as a chic, versatile accessory that you can wear from day to night. If you ask us, everyone should have at least one go-to watch they can slip on without a second thought. Below, we round up timepieces that are wearable everyday yet dressy enough to wear for more formal occasions.
10 Watches for Every Kind of Lifestyle
10 Classic Stainless-Steel Men's Watches for Every Budget
Here are 10 stylish watches to elevate your everyday looks:
Jaryn Watch (P11,750) from Michael Kors
You might already have a go-to gold watch, but this timepiece from Michael Kors adds a brown marble-patterned accent to the classic color, giving it a more distinct look. The watch will pair especially well with brown accessories like a brown handbag or elegant caramel-colored shoes.
Available online; see a list of Michael Kors branches.
Iconic Link (P10,500) from Daniel Wellington
The classic gold chain-link gets a modern twist on this Daniel Wellington watch thanks to the clean black clock face. You can wear the sleek design from the office straight into a night out. It also comes in a silver variation—we suggest sticking to gold if you have yellow-based, warm-toned skin and silver if you have pink-based, cool-toned skin.

LA670WA-1D (P1,495) from Casio
Who says digital watches can’t be dainty and elegant at the same time? This Casio watch is proof. Plus, it comes with cool features like a stopwatch, countdown, and a daily alarm, which makes it useful to track both work and personal commitments!
The Hickory (P2,599) from Kawayan
Give metallic watches a break and go for this wooden accessory from local brand Kawayan, which is made from bamboo. The minimalist clock face and strap will match perfectly with your casual boho outfits, but you can also use the watch to add a rustic touch to your work-ready ensembles or even your LBD.

Pearl Gold Stainless Steel Analog Watch (P3,580) from Armitron
Love pearl accessories? Match your fave pearl earrings with this pretty gold watch from Armitron, which is adorned with pearls along the delicate stainless-steel strap. You can wear it pretty much every day, but it’s also dressy enough even for more formal occasions.
Armitron is available at The SM Store, Robinsons Department Stores, and Metro Gaisano Department Stores nationwide.
Analog Watch (P4,450) from Nine West
If you prefer a larger clock face (we’re not all gifted with perfect eyesight after all), this Nine West watch won’t have you squinting to check the time. But don’t worry, the design remains to be delicate and sophisticated thanks to the ultra-narrow bangle-style strap.

Women’s Leather Watch (P7,550) from Tommy Hilfiger
For leather-strap loyalists, check out this Tommy Hilfiger watch. The gold casing is given a softer look thanks to the light, beige-toned strap. Plus, we’re obsessed with the light pink, shell-like pattern on the face which contrasts well with the itty-bitty numbers printed in gold.

Analog Watch SYMD93K1 (P5,279) from Seiko
Looking for a classic, no-frills design you can wear on the daily? This stainless-steel analog watch from Seiko is a reliable option. It has a handy date display on the face, in case you’re ever scrambling to remember. The compact design makes it extra versatile, so you can pair it with your corporate looks or even your fun, ultra-feminine outfits.

Ladies Watch (P10,250) Anne Klein
Yes, we admit, we’re still low-key obsessed with millennial pink. If you still can’t get enough of the irresistible blush shade, this gorgeous timepiece from Anne Klein may be right up your alley. You’ll have no problem pairing the light pink watch with any of your looks. Plus, we love the little crystal detail on the top part of the face, where the number 12 should be.
Anne Klein has branches at Power Plant Mall, Shangri-La Plaza, Robinsons Magnolia, and Greenbelt 5.
Tailor Analog Watch (P9,050) from Fossil
Give your usual gold or silver accessories a break and go for this sleek, all-black watch from Fossil. Purists will love the monochromatic design and minimalist face. It’s water-resistant so you can wear it even on rainy days!
