The Best Watch Brands for Women Under ₹10,000
Watches have become an undeniable necessity in life: regardless of occasion, nature of use, kind of style and other such factors, they are used on an everyday basis. While showing the time used to be their only function, watches nowadays function as an expression of the personality, style and creativity of the user. For some, collecting watches has even become a hobby. With the countless variations of the product existing in this global market valued at US$ 71.1 Billion (as of 2022), the scope for innovation is only ever growing.
With that being said, the price range and authenticity of the watches are two important factors that are to be taken into consideration while purchasing them. This requires one to break a few stereotypes. The most important one is this: style and luxury are qualities restricted to high-end watches. The second stereotype will claim that mid-range watches are not of good quality. Contrary to this popular belief, budget watches can be just as luxurious and stylish, all while retaining good quality. And the best part is: they’re affordable.
This blog will break the stereotypes: we have made a list of 5 of the best watch brands in India that offer products for women wearers, that tick all the boxes without burning a huge hole in our pocket, below the range of Rs. 10,000!
An affordable, entry-level watch brand, Fossil’s designs are mostly conventional.

Their collection ranges from heavy-designed watches to minimalist watches. Some of them feature jewels and elaborate, intricate designs that are suitable for use on special occasions - or simply when you’re feeling fancy!

Either way, if you are someone who refuses to experiment and if you have a love affair with classics and traditions, then Fossil is the brand for you!
