Daily Drivers: Great Watches for Under 5,000 Euros

IWC Schaffhausen Aquatimer Chronograph


In the past decades IWC became famous for great no-nonsense tool watches. This Aquatimer is a good example for that. With a highly durable ETA chronograph movement and a steel or rubber bracelet you have everything you need for the office, the weekend or actual diving.

It comes in 42mm which is the perfect size for a modern sports watch. The clean understated design makes it the ideal companion for many years to come.


Enthusiast’s Corner: Rare or Exceptional Timepieces

Girard Perregaux 1966 Chronograph


Classic two-register chronographs have a special role in the haute horlogerie world. Examples from Patek Philippe and Lange & Söhne are some of the most desired grail watches of watch aficionados. The Girard Perregaux 1966 Chronograph is still undervalued compared to them. Instead of hand-wound it’s powered by an automatic movement with less hand-finished decoration than its much more expensive competitors. It’s also available in steel instead of gold or platinum.

All in all, it’s simply a great high-end chronograph with traditional design from a respected brand.


Iconic Timepieces: Great Value for Your Money

Rolex Sea-Dweller


This Sea-Dweller is a perfect tool watch for everybody who wants more than “just” a regular Submariner. It’s water-resistant for depths that 99,9% of us will never reach and contains a helium escape valve which is necessary if you are part of the 0,1% professional deep sea divers out there.

From a collector’s perspective it’s particularly interesting because it still has the minimalistic look without the cyclops loupe above the date. As with all popular Rolex models that aren’t produced anymore it’s value will surely rise in the coming years.
