Peugot Watches: Affordable Quality
Peugot watches (not to be confused with the French car maker) have been around since 1957.
Back in the day, they were known for making high-end, luxury gold timepieces, but have since realigned their brand and are now seen as an affordable fashion brand. That is great news for us, the consumer, because they have a large range of stylish watches that are often below are not far above 100 dollars.
They can often be found on Amazon and at reasonable prices too.
Just take a look at this silver Peugot watch here and tell me this doesn’t look like a thousand dollar watch?
In this review I will take a look at some of Peugot watches most popular models and whether they are worth it in the end.
Peugot watches may not be made in Switzerland, but they do seem to choose quality materials.
For example, the movement that drives the watch (the things that makes it tick) is a Quartz movement from Japan. As you may not know, Seiko in Japan was the company responsible for the invention and popularity of quartz watches back in the 70s. So, the fact that they are using Japanese Quartz (all from Seiko themselves from what I can find online) in their watches is great news!
Watch materials are almost always stainless steel. This is industry standard and the best quality, and most durable for the long run.
Some companies use cheaper materials like bronze, but often it is not as strong or long lasting.
For the watch bands, Peugot also use either stainless steel or leather. Again, industry standard and what all quality manufacturers use these days.
Peugot Watch Warranty & Battery Replacement
Not all manufacturers are willing to stand by their products and replace or repair when things go wrong. Thankfully, Peugot watches are not one of those.
Their manufacturer’s warranty seems quite reasonable, only excluding things like when you damage or misuse the watch. Normal for any warranty.
Here are specifically the things they DON’T cover:
- Physical damage to the case, crystal, strap or bracelet
- Damage to the movement due to improper handling, accidents, or normal wear and tear
- Damage caused by water unless the watch is marked “water resistant.”
Otherwise, it is a Lifetime Warranty.
Likewise, they will also replace your battery for the life of the watch, as long as you pay to send it in. Here is what they say
“shipping & handling excluded- cost of new battery and labor is free of charge”.
Just make sure to register your watch with them after you purchase it.
So, Peugot make quality and affordable watches with a great warranty and battery replacement policy.
Now, what kinds of watches do they make. Is there one that suits your tastes?
Let’s take a look…
Women's Rectangle Leather Watch
One of Peugot’s most popular watches is their rectangular face watch with a whole bunch of stylish colored leather bands.
They have a H-shaped face, with stylish silver hour markers and triangular hands. There are a few options in terms of color too, with a black, white and silver face.
The bands are mostly in leather, but you can also get some quite funky colored nylon bands as well. I have added some images below which you can click to go straight to the product.
Of course, they also come with the Seiko Japan quartz movement and the limited lifetime warranty with free battery replacement.
Women's Classic Watches
Peugot of course make some of the classic watches with either sliver, or gold plating. Most of them come with a steel bracelet, to add to the sense of class of these watches.
Depending on the model you buy, there are also some with Swiss quartz movements and also Swarowski crystals! Most people would think you have paid 5x the price for these kinds of watches.
Women's Unique Watches
These guys have also gone a little crazy with some of their face and band designs. Not something I would buy for my girlfriend, but if you want to stand out, these Peugot watches are for you.
Peugot Men's Watches
There are less options for men (always seems to be the case with fashion :>).
They are of course the same quality and quartz movements, but the colors and styles tend to be more restrained.
There are a few square and long rectangle styles though, which is not that common, so, I take my hat off to Peugot for at least giving us some unique choices.
