Top 5 Watches Under £1000 To Invest In Today


Whether you are new to designer watches or if you are a veteran, these five fine watches should make your heart race. Featuring both style, unique designs, and coming from legendary watch makers, these watches will not only look great on the wrist, but be a great investment too.

The Victorinox Infantry Vintage Mecha: Price £695.

This is a watch that GQ.COM has raved about in the past, but sometimes good is great. The Infantry Vintage Mecha is an affordable watch with a retro look. There is an option of a small seconds face or day/date feature to go with the timekeeping functions. A 44mm stainless case has the option of black, or olive drab for a more authentic military issue look.
Longines WWW: Priced at about £860.

Another military styled watch, the re-issue of the “Wrist Watch, Waterproof” will remind your older friends and family of the IWC Spitfire console from WWII. Longines has added luster and class to this old standard issue watch and promises to give excellent value for your money.

Gucci Web Titanium: Priced at about £985.

At the high end of the 5 watches under £1000, Gucci had the fashion guru’s drooling over their presentations at the Baselworld Watch and Jewelry show in Switzerland a few years ago. With this brand, design doesn’t stop with the technology. The Web Titanium looks more like a conventional watch, but did inherit several things from the old days, notably the striped motif of fame. This one sports PVD on the surface and a partially open worked face.

TAG Heuer F1: Priced at about £625.

TAG Heur distinguished themselves as the “basement to penthouse” Swiss watch maker when they unveiled the “entry level” F1, and at the other end of the spectrum, the Monaco V4 (retailing at £65,000.) The F1 was upgraded from the “plasticky” smaller version produced in the 80′s, but kept the look very fashionable, and the price much more affordable.

Swatch Club: Priced at about £52.50.

With this being the least expensive of the 5, if you are going to spend all of your thousand, you can have more than a few of these. The company that brought life back to the Swiss watch industry celebrated their 25th anniversary by releasing a line with much artistic flair. The French graffiti artist, Grems, was enlisted to produce a line that will appreciate along with the other lines Swatch has. The Club is decorated with the aforementioned artist’s work for an unusual, yet appealing look.
