Daily Drivers: Great Watches for Under 5,000 Euros
Tudor Heritage Black Bay “Black”
For a few years now, Tudor has returned to the limelight thanks to their Heritage Black Bay series. It is a line in which literally everyone can find a favorite model, if they are shopping for a diving watch that is. Regardless of whether you prefer a black, blue, or red bezel, and whether you are a fan of bronze or perhaps black PVD-coated cases, you’ll find one that suits your taste. Furthermore, you have the option of choosing their in-house caliber or purchasing an earlier version with an ETA-based movement.
The Tudor Heritage Black Bay offers a tremendous presence on your wrist and a quality watch for years to come at a stunning price. Our favorite piece is the Tudor Heritage Black Bay “Black,” as it is truly close to the original Tudor watches. It looks good on almost any strap – you will not be disappointed.
Enthusiast’s Corner: Rare or Exceptional Timepieces
Seiko Grand Seiko Hi-Beat
Seiko watches are everywhere: They are cheap, entry-level timepieces. If this is what you think of when you think of Seiko, think again. Seiko’s line is full of interesting, quality timepieces at very attractive prices, but the Grand Seiko Hi-Beat is from another breed. This is a true watch aficionado’s watch; one who appreciates quality, craftsmanship, and tradition over which logo or name appears on the dial. The case design resembles that of the vintage Grand Seiko, but if you turn the watch over, you’ll see the movement through the display case back. This watch represents Japanese watchmaking at its finest and is a true work of art.
An automatic high-beat movement that ticks 36,000 times per hour, or 10 times per second, powers the watch. It is not only clean and elegant, but technically advanced compared to many other high-end watches. Best of it all, the timepiece is not recognized by the average spectator, but instantly known by like-minded watch lovers.
Iconic Timepieces: Great Value for Your Money
Cartier Tank Solo XL
What can we say about the Cartier Tank that has not already been said a thousand times? Its iconic status is so substantial that few timepieces can compete with it. The Cartier Tank is the epitome of a classic dress watch: elegant and slim, yet with a notable character. A Cartier Tank will never go out of style – ever. You can choose to wear a smaller or larger version, but it always has the same feeling and look once you strap it on.
The white dial with its huge Roman numerals and the precious metal case is a divine combination. Pair it with a thin leather strap and you’ll never have to worry about getting another dress watch in your entire life. It’s a curious juxtaposition that something designed after military tanks can be so sophisticated and tasteful. Yet, that’s the history behind the Cartier Tank and it remains a gentleman’s watch nonetheless.
