Watch reviews under £1000

The £500-£1000 price bracket contains some of the best value for money watches in existence, and it would class as “entry-level luxury”. It’s the perfect balance of the best specs you can get, with superior build quality, whilst still being an attainable purchase for many, financially. You shouldn’t settle for anything less than a tried-and-tested bulletproof movement, preferably mechanical, alongside flawless build quality and impressive craftsmanship. Sapphire crystals are a given, unless it’s a vintage inspired piece that could be loaded with acrylic. Browse watch reviews featuring stunning photography and videos of the best watches under £1000 below.
