New York-based Armitron watches is fairly young in comparison to how long many other watch companies have been around. Founded in 1956, Armitron started out as a digital watchmaker, with its focus more on the electronic parts of watchmaking. However in most recent times, Armitron has delved into the world of quartz timepieces, making them more affordable for the masses. Many famous athletes have endorsed the brand before, and today, Armitron sticks to the branding of being the perfect watches for the active lifestyle. Armitron has many watches to choose from, but here are the five best watches you can buy from the brand today.
1. Armitron Men’s 20/4677GNTT
There’s something about the beautiful emerald green color of this watch that seems to be almost hypnotic, and the addition of the two-tone design of this watch finishes the look with such perfection. It may only appeal to some tastes, but the features are some of the best we’ve seen in the industry. The Japanese quartz movement is competitive enough in comparison to higher-end luxury watches. The mineral dial window shows the beautiful design of the watch, which also happens to be water resistant up to 165 feet. You can certainly wear this watch while you swim or even shower. The diameter of the watch is big enough to make a statement but not too big that it’s uncomfortable. This Armitron watch is surely one of the best classic-looking watches we’ve seen in a long time.
2. Armitron Men’s 20/4930WTTT
Exposed Skeleton Dial, The two-tone silver and gold against the white face of this watch gives it such a clean look. This Armitron can be dressed up for a night out or it can be worn as a daily timepiece. The partially exposed Japanese quartz movement gives it a subtle hint of technicality and industrialism, a unique touch to Armitron’s designs. It’s certainly a beautiful watch with its gold tone Roman numeral markers and hands that will glow due to its luminous material. The watch is water resistant up to 50m, and while it can be used for short periods of recreational swimming, we recommend that you keep this watch away from water as much as possible.
3. Armitron Diamond Dial Bracelet Watch
For the most elegant look from Armitron, this is the watch to get. The completely black dial is striking against the gold-tone of the bracelet. In addition, the four markers that mark the three, six, nine, and twelve o’clock positions add a touch of clean sophistication to the entire look. It’s surely a stunning piece that features a reliable Japanese quartz movement. The 42mm dial might be big for some people, but it’s just the type of dial that you can show off. There isn’t a lot going on in the dial itself, so it won’t look or feel too overbearing. The watch is water resistant up to 50m, but as beautiful as this watch is, you’ll probably keep it away from the water naturally.
4. Armitron 20/4987BLDG Navy Blue Dial Gunmetal Bracelet Watch
This Armitron dress watch is one of the better-looking Armitron watches out there. First off, the gunmetal-tone bracelet is stunning. It’s got this subtle appeal to it that’s not flashy or bright. It’s perfect for those who like darker bands but want something metal instead. The highlight of this watch, however, is the beautiful blue dial. This dial will stick out on your arm no matter what you wear, but it’s got an elegant look that screams some type of luxury regardless. The watch features double-line markers except at the twelve o’clock place, where it uses the Roman numeral notation. Combined with a Japanese quartz movement, this watch is a definite must-have for any watch aficionado.
5. Armitron Men's 20/4997NVRGBN
If you’re looking for a more non-metal watch, this Armitron is the way to go. The brown leather straps give this watch a classic look, which can be dressed up or dressed down depending on your mood. The rose gold case looks great against the brown leather straps, but it’s really the blue dial that sets this watch apart. The three subdials add a nice subtle detail and the classic numerical markings just accentuate the overall classic look of the watch. Being that it’s water resistant up to 165ft, you can take this watch out to get wet without causing it damage.
