Hi! Thanks for coming to learn more about me and my site!

My name is David, and I’m the owner and writer of the content you’ll find on AffordableWatchGuide.com.

When I wanted to buy my first watch years ago, I had no idea what to look for in a wristwatch.

Of course, I had heard of luxury brands like Rolex, but high-end watches were way outside my budget.

I wasn’t sure what was available in my price range or if I could even get a good watch for what I could spend.

So, like most people, I started my watch shopping by browsing the watch sections of my local department store.

I remember feeling like I didn’t know enough about the brands and watches on display.

Making things worse, I felt like the person working behind the counter only had slightly more knowledge than I did on the subject.

I also tried looking for watches online.

Like you’ve probably found out, there are tens of thousands of watches available on Amazon alone. With hundreds of brands and watches with prices from $5 to $200,000, I was immediately lost.

I was so overwhelmed that I actually lost the desire and gave up my search.

My first watch

Luckily, I received a watch as a gift a few months later and my journey as a watch enthusiast began.

Since then, I’ve immersed myself in learning about watches. I’ve found that there’s a lot of value that can be had even for under $100 if you know what to look for.

I never forgot my first shopping experience, though, and I created AffordableWatchGuide.com to help others navigate the watch market.

With the information you’ll find here, you’ll have the knowledge you need to choose a great watch, even if your budget is small.
