Yesterday, I published an article on MotoringExposure about buying watches under 1000 USD. There are a lot of offers, but which one satisfies the watchfreak?
Browsing the internet and going through several annual catalogues, I came up with the Glycine Incursore ‘Black Jack’, the Sinn 656 and the Tissot PRS516 Automatic Chronograph. All three very different watches, but are all ‘serious’ timepieces under 1000 USD and follow my own 5 defined rules for this quest:
1. It should be a (respected) Swiss or German brand
2. A mechanical movement (Swiss/German origin), ETA2824 or ETA6498 for example
3. No plastic parts on the outside (excludes Swatch for example)
4. Stainless steel casing
5. Sapphire crystal
Of course, there are numerous great alternatives, but?Ç¬I had to make choices
