Our Recommendations by Price Range

Entry Level (Under $250)

Often the gateway drug into the world of mechanical watches the entry level category is a perfect place to start one’s journey. Entry level watches aim to pack as much value as possible into their product while remaining at a price point that is palatable to any customer.

The price point we are covering here is under $250 and features three Japanese manufacturers who have mastered the art of providing mass produced reliable watches.   

  • Citizen Eco-Drive AW1620: A product of Tokyo-based Citizen, known for its light-powered Eco-Drive movements. Priced between $100-$150.
  • Seiko 5 Sports SNZG13: From the renowned Seiko, this watch boasts features like automatic winding, day and date display, and more. Available for $145-$175.
  • Orient Defender (Generation 1): A versatile watch from Orient, a brand with a rich history similar to Seiko. Priced between $200-$250.

      Entry Level Luxury ($250 – $1,000)

      Entry level luxury is an interesting category, as it can represent both the beginning of one’s passion for watches through a first timepiece or the end of a collecting journey.

      The entry level luxury category represents an approachable price point between $250-$1,000 and can be a perfect spot for anyone, whether they looking to dip their toe in water or jump right in. Our picks for this section are from one Japanese manufacturer and two storied Swiss manufacturers. 

      • Seiko SARB035: A beautiful piece often referred to as the "baby Grand Seiko". Available for $375-$450.
      • Hamilton Khaki Automatic: A watch with aviation-inspired design and an in-house movement. Priced between $325-$575.
      • Tissot Gentleman Powermatic 80 Silicium: A versatile watch from Tissot, a brand known for its value for money. Available for $700-$800.

        Affordable Luxury ($1,000 – $2,500)

        Affordable luxury represents one of the fastest growing segments on this list through the emergence of micro brands  being able to offer plenty of value at this reasonable price point.

        The $1,000-$2,500 is the sweet spot where the value per dollar is at its highest. Our picks represent two picks from Germany and one Swiss/American watch.

        • Sinn 556i: A rugged watch from German brand Sinn, known for its TEGIMENT Technology. Priced at around $1,380.
        • Nomos Glashütte Club Campus: A simple yet elegant watch from German brand Nomos. Available for $1,650-$1,950.
        • Monta Atlas: A Swiss-made watch from the micro brand Monta, known for its craftsmanship. Priced at $1,950.

          Mid-Range Luxury ($2,500 – $10,000)

          Mid-range luxury category represents the largest category with the fiercest of competition in the world of watches. Here is where we get to see the brands we all know and love shine at that $2,500-$10,000 price point.

          Realistically this is the last price point where that “one watch collection” exists because chances are if a person is willing to spend over $10,000 on watch they are likely going to have more than one. Our three picks in the mid-range luxury category consist of three of the most storied brands in all of watches. 

          • Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra: A watch from the iconic Omega, known for its precision and design. Priced between $5,400-$5,700.
          • Santos De Cartier: A unique watch from Cartier, a brand known for its distinct designs. Available for $6,250-$7,650.
          • Zenith Defy Classic: A lightweight yet rugged watch from Zenith, a brand with over 150 years of expertise. Priced at $7,200.

            High-End Luxury ($10,000 and Up)

            High end luxury is by far the trickiest category, let’s face it if someone is going to spend $10,000+ on watch the likelihood of having just one watch is rather low. On another note while the high retail prices of these watches is definitely barrier of entry for most, actually having the money to spend will not be enough to secure one!

            A person must build up a lucrative relationship with a local authorized dealer (which involves the purchase of multiple watches over a long period of time) OR one must bite the bullet and pay close to double the price on the secondary market. All of this said IF it was possible to get any of these watches at retail they would serve incredibly well in a one watch collection!

            • Rolex Daytona: A chronograph from the legendary Rolex, known for its association with the Daytona 500 and Paul Newman. Priced at $13,150.
            • Vacheron Constantin Overseas Self-Winding: A watch from one of the "holy trinity" of watchmaking, Vacheron Constantin. Available for $19,600.

              Caring for Your One Watch Collection

              When it comes to curating the Best One Watch Collection, maintenance and servicing play pivotal roles in ensuring your timepiece stands the test of time. Regular check-ups, just like you'd have for a luxury car, can keep your watch ticking accurately and extend its lifespan. 

              But it's not just about the internal mechanics; protecting your watch from external damages is equally crucial. Whether it's a scratch from an accidental brush against a wall or damage from water exposure, a little precaution goes a long way. And for those who own automatic watches, using a watch winder can be a game-changer, ensuring your watch remains wound and accurate even when not worn daily.

              In essence, the longevity and pristine condition of your best one watch collection hinge on these care practices, making them indispensable for every watch enthusiast.
