Great Watches Under $5,000

Breitling Chronomat 44

Even though it’s already 10 years old, the Breitling Chronomat 44 has not lost any of its charm. It is the quintessential men’s watch: It offers a large, 44-mm steel case, a beautiful deep blue dial, and awesome wrist presence. While it may not be Breitling’s legendary chronograph, the Navitimer, this takes nothing away from the Chronomat’s shine. Sure, the Navitimer and its classic design enjoy widespread popularity. However, if you’re into more modern shapes and design, the Chronomat might just be the watch for you. It looks as good on a steel bracelet as it does on a leather strap. Plus, it has a handy chronograph function and a date display between 4 and 5 o’clock. And did I mention that it features a chronometer-certified automatic movement? It doesn’t get any better than that at this price point, especially from a prestigious brand like Breitling.

Enthusiast’s Corner: Rare and Exceptional Timepieces

Omega Seamaster 300M

Nowadays, most people associate high-end quartz watches with the famous Japanese brand Seiko. However, life was a bit different 20-25 years ago when many luxury brands were turning to quartz technology in the wake of the quartz crisis. Even some of the most legendary watches, such as this Omega Seamaster 300M, got the quartz treatment. This new take on an industry icon took the world by storm when it appeared on the silver screen on the wrist of a freshly minted James Bond, Pierce Brosnan. Many consider the quartz Seamaster 300M the Bond watch of that era. If you’re a fan of Her Majesty’s secret agent and/or Omega, the quartz Seamaster 300M belongs in your collection.

Iconic Timepieces: Great Value for Money

Tudor Pelagos Titanium

When it comes to modern Tudor watches, everybody seems to be talking about the Black Bay – and rightfully so. We ourselves have covered this icon many times. Even so, Tudor has so much more to offer. Take the Tudor Pelagos Titanium, for example. It is a simple tool watch with a beautiful and clean design. This must be how people viewed the Rolex 5512 back in the day: “Sure, we’ve seen similar things, including the predecessors to this very model, but this version is sheer perfection.” At 42 mm in diameter, it is a wonderful size while still distinguishing itself from dress watches. Plus, it’s very light thanks to its use of titanium. White snowflake hands provide a stunning contrast to the blue dial and bezel. This color combination also works well with the Titanium’s gray hue. Add the COSC-certified movement into the mix, and you have an iconic timepiece.
