The 10 Best Minimalist Watches

Since the prehistoric era, people have had an ongoing fascination with observing the passing of time. However, the standardization of time keeping didn’t come into the average person’s everyday life until train networks were introduced in the 18th and 19th centuries, requiring precise departure times that could only be measured by a clock.

Fast forward to the modern-age: we all still continually depend on time to arrive at our destination in a timely manner or to simply make it fifteen minutes early to an appointment. With wristwatches making a comeback, especially those with simple, yet sophisticated designs, you can expect versatility in style and comfort for continual wear.

Your time is valuable and searching for the perfect wristwatch can be a daunting task, so we’ve crafted a list of our 10 favorite minimalist watches, each with their own unique features. Scroll to find the best timepieces for your style and price point.
