Luxury Watches Under 1000
Finding Luxury Watches under $1000 is easy because we can always find a great looking watch with lots of features and a comfortable price tag if we concentrate on Japanese steel from Citizen, Seiko, Casio et al, but what if you have a hankering for a luxury name with luxury features without the luxury price?
Leaving the Japanese brands behind for a while, a few names come to mind when I think of affordable Luxury brands, such as Hamilton, Christopher Ward, Bremont, even Omega hits the list because depending on your budget, you can get your hands on the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M for under $3000.
Today I want to look a Tissot, a brand that’s often overlooked in the luxury market, maybe it’s thought of as Japanese or maybe the keen pricing baffles people into thinking nothing that well priced can be a serious contender. I have to admit that even I have been guilty of not taking the brand seriously in the past, but I want to consign that poor judgment to the past and move on. The best way to do this is to wave a flag high to express my respect for this underrated gem.
Tissot Everytime Large NATO
Things don’t get simpler than this. The new Tissot Everytime is a classic for all men and all occasions, this can be worn at work, at weddings and funerals, and at the golf club, it’s simplicity is timeless and the clear crisp features never seem to overpower the situation. With a simple price for a simple design, this is possibly my favorite watch of 2017.
Tissot T-Complication Squelette Mechanical
The Tissot T-Complication Squelette was always going to be on the top Tissot’s price range. The complex design and the meticulous craftsmanship that’s gone into this hand-wound mechanical skeleton movement fully visibility through the front of the dial is palpable. The luxury finish and design are worthy of a grand name and a much grander price point, but here we are with complex styling in a superb Watch for pocket money.
What’s Tissot Got On The Others?
Tissot has always been busy innovating in the background and while it’s slow work it’s interesting to know owners of a Tissot, like owners of larger brands like Omega, Tudor, and even Patek Philippe, can take advantage of some really high-end capabilities. I’m talking about the use of silicon balance springs that have become one of the industry’s greatest innovations. Generally reserved for use in the bigger, grander names, the Tissot’s sub-$1,000 Ballade uses one, which is also a fully certified COSC chronometer, accurate to within -2/+4 seconds per day.
