Daily Drivers: Great Watches for Under 5,000 Euros

Frédérique Constant Manufacture Classic

 

Frédérique Constant has always been a wise choice for watch buyers when it comes to great value for your money. Their designs are timeless and elegant while remaining modern. Whether you are looking for a sophisticated watch or a simple workhorse, Frédérique Constant has something to offer. They went one step further with their Manufacture watches, creating a great line of timepieces with in-house movements at a wallet-friendly price.

For many brands, the word “in-house” means higher prices and/or limited production. Not with Frédérique Constant. The brand has a number of Manufacture watches starting as low as €2,000, such as this beautiful Manufacture Classic. With a 40-mm case, black dial, and Roman numerals, it has everything a dress watch should offer and more.

 

Enthusiast’s Corner: Rare or Exceptional Timepieces

Rolex Yacht-Master

 

This is a Rolex you won’t see around that often. Although the Yacht-Master may be looked down upon by some, I still believe it is a model with a lot of potential that a true watch connoisseur would understand and appreciate. It’s a great size and has perfect wrist presence at 40 mm. It has almost the same dimensions as a Submariner, only this timepiece won’t pop up all the time. Its color is certainly distinctive, but if you are looking for something different and don’t want to blend in, the Yacht-Master is a good choice.

After all, it is a Rolex sports model turned up a notch; its beautiful dial is a looker, catching the light in a very special way. Oh, and in case you didn’t know: the is dial platinum, just like the bezel. The touch of red is a much-needed detail to add color to the platinum and steel. It’s a future classic Rolex sports watch for sure.

 

Iconic Timepieces: Great Value for Your Money

Vintage Heuer Monaco Chronograph

 

The King of Cool wore the Heuer Monaco, thereby cementing its legacy in the big book of watchmaking history. There is no way you can read about Steve McQueen and not come across the iconic image of him in the blue and orange Gulf-striped overalls with the Monaco on his wrist. It’s one of the most popular images of the late Hollywood legend. The Monaco has been flying high ever since and it seems it will remain on top for a long time.

Thanks to its odd (at the time) design, large square steel case, and blue dial with white chronograph subdials, the watch became an icon. While it may have started its life as the odd man out, it is now one of the brand’s flagship timepieces. If you are a car racing, film, or design enthusiast, this watch is for you.
