There’s a certain stigma when it comes to automatic watches that they’re not attainable for the average guy. Fortunately for the rest of us (anyone that can’t wear a mortgage payment on their arm or park it in their driveway), there are a few affordable options in the automatic world. One of our favorites is the new Branco from Orbis Morgan. We’re not going to get into the nitty gritty details of the watch because Hodinkee lays it out better than we ever could, but we will say this–pairing a Miyota 8215 movement, PVD 43mm case and an Italian leather watch band (and some other bands in the package) to a sub-$250 price tag is almost unheard of on a watch that looks this good.
