Let’s be real, most car enthusiasts are not buying brand-new Audi R8s and/or A8s. For those of you that are — congratulations but this article likely isn’t for you. This article is for the Audi enthusiast that wants to buy a B7 Audi A4 or S8 S5 — something used but awesome. Those enthusiasts, the ones who are buying on a budget, might be very interested in a watch for the holidays, as we all know watches and cars go together like cookies and milk. So what’s a good watch that you can get on a surprisingly cheap budget? A Vincero Watch.
Vincero is a relatively new brand, having only been around for the past few years. Its based in California and makes some pretty high quality watches, with reliable movements for affordable prices. Now, let’s not confuse Vincero with something like Rolex or even Omega. However, those watches cost thousands and thousands of dollars. The average Vincero price? Under $200.
So what do you get for $200? Well, you get a 316L surgical-grade stainless steel case, a sapphire coated crystal case glass and a Citizen Miyota movement. While the Miyota movement is a simple quartz movement and not very sexy, its bulletproof reliability and accuracy make it one of the best affordable watch movements on the market. Personally, as a big fan of Seiko (parent company of Citizen), I can get behind any watch that uses a Miyota movement.
While all Vincero watches come with Miyota movements, there are various different styles of watch to choose from. From traditional chronograph dress watches to diver-style watches, Vincero has several styles, colors, bands and finishes to choose from. What’s even better is that with prices that range from $160-$240, they’re affordable enough that you can buy a couple of very specific watches for specific occasions.
Are Vincero watches the most horologically exciting or impressive watches on the market? No, of course not. But are they affordable, good looking and well made watches from an American company? Yes and that’s the point. So if you’re looking for a nice casual dress watch or a stylish piece to go with a specific outfit, especially if it’s for a gift for the holidays, it’s hard to look away from Vincero as an inexpensive but high-quality option.
