Nowadays, a time-telling function might be replaced by the use of smartphones but having a watch on the wrist is still considered an elegant and practical way. But for youths, I believe that wearing a watch is more about fashion and appearance. Therefore, having one that gives a stylish look and comfort is the priority to choose cool watches for teenagers. 

On the other hand, a luxury timepiece might still be out of range for teenagers. As such, timepieces with affordable prices are the best option. When it comes to look or design, I believe that no one can truly resist the appeal of cool watch complications in an analog timepiece. 

With that being said, I’ve carefully collected some cool watches for teenagers that fit the criteria – and hopefully, meet your preferences as well. So, let’s dive in!

5 Stylish and Cool Watches for Teenagers

I’ve filtered the watches under some criteria that need to be affordable or watches under $1000, have simple features or complications, and have a stylish appearance. These watches will definitely elevate your style one level ahead.

Ball Watch Co. Fireman Enterprise Black Ref. NM2098C-S20-BK

Classic, trendy, and simple appearance, the Ball Watch Co. Fireman Enterprise Black would make a good choice as a cool watch for teenagers. It measures 40mm in diameter and 11,5mm in thickness which makes a proportional dimension. A black dial background combined with stainless steel is also a splendid design that gives simplicity to the youth.

The watch is driven by the caliber BALL RR1103 with a power reserve of roughly 38 hours. Many watchmakers claim the accuracy of the watch. Above all, the watch is available at an affordable price which is $870.00 USD.

Seiko Selection Solar Chronograph Panda Ref. SBPY16

A little bit of complexity gives another charm to the watch as presented in the Seiko Selection Solar Chronograph Panda. A chronograph might be a little too much for youths but never be a wrong choice to start differently. Besides, the watch isn’t as complex as the tourbillon watch – after all chronograph is a stopwatch function.

The reason why this timepiece would be one of the cool watches for teenagers lies in the classic configuration of the dial layout. It has a panda layout where three black sub-dial are against a white background. Despite being classic, the watch doesn’t fail to show a handsome good look and robust specification.

Steinhart Ocean 39 Vintage GMT – Gnomon Exclusive

The next cool watch for teenagers on the list is the Steinhart Ocean 39 Vintage GMT. The watch comes with a sporty look that is very much suitable for the youth. Taking a closer look at the dial, you will also realize the charm of the watch. It features a black dial background with orange hour markers that make a good contrast.
