Mondaine
How about a watch with a heritage, that’s a design classic and still costs less than £100? You get the lot with the Mondaine Swiss Railway Watch.

The watch is modelled on the Swiss Railway Station Clock which has been displayed in every Swiss railway station since the 1940s – and originally designed by Swiss Federal Railways employee Hans Hilfiker. He designed the face to be easily readable from a distance, with a red second hand to enable passengers to judge precisely when trains would arrive and depart.

This smart timepiece also has a quartz movement and water-resistance and is available online for a very affordable £98.
