Be sure to check out the previous lists in this series:
So without further ado, let’s take a look at our top 5 picks for the best watches under $1000!
1. Glycine Combat Sub
The Glycine Combat Sub is a swiss made, automatic diver’s watch sporting the ETA 2824 movement.
For under $1000 it is one of the best watches you can get regarding value, as not only is it a high quality, swiss made watch, but it also has a rich history leading back to the Vietnam war.
2. Tissot T-Touch Expert Titanium
While perhaps not for everyone, it is undeniable that the Tissot T-Touch is a highly functional watch from a great, reputable swiss watch maker.
At under $1000, it is superb value for money and a timepiece which will serve you well over a long period of time.
3. Oris Aquis
The Oris Aquis is arguably the best watch that can be had for under $1000.
The build quality is outstanding for this price range, certainly a piece that will last a very long time if properly maintained.
4. Hamilton Khaki X-Patrol
The Hamilton Khaki X-Patrol is one of the best value automatic swiss chronograph aviation watches.
It features a 20mm lug width making it compatible with a huge variety of watch straps!
5. Longines Hydroconquest
The Longines Hydroconquest comes in either an Automatic or Quartz version.
It features a classic, yet bold design, and plenty of brand history and heritage!

A superb watch brand is Rolex Tudor. For those of you who are not familiar with the Tudor brand, they were founded by the same people who founded Rolex, and until about 15 years ago they used Rolex cases.
So, essentially, a Tudor gives you a Rolex made case, dial etc but with a top ETA movement instead of an in-house Rolex movement. This is the only difference!
I personally picked up this gem on eBay not too long ago for well under $1000, and it has a Rolex signed case and solid gold Rolex crown and fluted bezel.
For your money, you can’t get better value than this!
Regardless of which one of these watches you pick up, you will get great value and quality for money for sure.
I have left Amazon links for each of them so you can know that you have good customer support and protection in case you wish to return one.
We hope you enjoyed this list of the Best Watches under $1000.
