If you are looking to buy a watch from some of the very best watchmakers in the world under £1000, this is the list for you.
You don’t think that you can buy a brand new Tag Heuer for under a grand? Of course you can, and you won’t go far wrong with this classic Formula 1, first released in 1986. 43mm version shaves £50 of the 41mm version, by using a military- grade Nato webbing strap instead of a bracelet. It is quite sporty, stylish and water resistant to 200m.
Famous for their insane toughness, some of the tests include being blasted by corrosive liquids and run over by a tank – an INOX Swiss Army watch will not let you down. Its Titanium case makes it perfect for high impact sports and professional marine activities.
Described as “the ultimate all day, every occasion time piece” by Rado. They have around 70+ models in a variety of colors , sizes, styles and in both quartz and automatic movements. However, this bold black ceramic dial version hits the spot nicely. It is classic without playing it safe and enough sporty to make it the perfect all- rounder.
With its simple case, numerals and dial, this model is perfect for a true gentleman. A watch with Tissot’s ‘heritage’ logo was a sought- after piece on its first release.
Yes, the price for this watch is really £95. So, technically you could buy more that two watches and still have change from £1000. It is a masterclass in design, with its Indigo backlight technology and sword hands. There is not a good reason why you shouldn’t own a watch like this.
This independent watchmaker has been producing exceptional, high performance watches for over 100 years. Oris ‘Big Crown’ is both clean and sleek, and manages to be casual and exquisitely detailed. It has an automatic pointer and calendar movement. Excellent combination of vintage and contemporary design.
Minimalist purism is a trait that a Swiss architect, typeface designer and creative director Max Bill was trying to achieve with this watch. Its mesmerizing numberless white face with luminous markers, a stainless steel case worn on a businesslike black strap is everything a man can hope for.
