Best Watches under $2000 - Reviews


The good life doesn’t just happen. The watch is a good analogy for how good things come to be. One good ‘tick’ (one moment) followed by the next good ‘tick.’ The seconds become minutes and the minutes flow into hours. Hours and hours of work that results in the ability to have and appreciate the quality of one’s

Remember your first car? It was probably four tires and a steering wheel. You probably didn’t have too many extras when starting out in life. All you wanted was ‘a car’ that would allow you personal transportation to school, to a first job, and to begin your independence as the beginning adult you were ‘fast’ becoming. Your first car was special and your first watch special and will always hold memories that are greatly treasured. However, time ticks onward and if lucky (blessed) upward also. As life continues; the good we do also grows in value and becomes shown and known to us in a variety of ways. Good work effort gets reward. That includes your watch. The best work you give, deserves to be given back to you in the watch you wear. In this article I bring to your attention the best of craftsmanship in watches that are in the under $2000 category.

Where a Swiss watch usually allows the peering in at the workings on the flip side of the dial; in this watch, one can peer inside at the top of the dial face to see the movement of the gears. While this isn’t a diver’s watch; it is water resistant to 984 feet. (so if you happen to shower with your watch; no problem) The soft wide 22 millimeter brown leather strap with deployment buckle adds comfort and security of keeping your watch tight to your wrist. The dark blue hour and second hands also make for ease of reading the time and the hands are luminous. A classic! continue

Definitely formal business dress watch. The band is titanium two-tone grey color. It is a chronograph watch with two sub-dials, one of which is a perpetual calendar. The movement of the luminous green hour and second hands are precision accurate Japanese quartz movement and solar powered. The perfect watch for the business traveler, as it can give the time in 26 different world time zones. Water resistant like the CC1076-02E model to 660 feet of water; you could use this in surface water activities such as swimming. A watch that is under $2,000.00; but Shhhh; who has to know?

Frederique Constant World Timer Watch
Frederique Constant World Timer Watch
The name says it all. The outer ring of the face dial shows a list of the major cities around the globe; the black and white colored ring shows the time in all these cities. By setting your local time zone to the 12 o’clock position the Swiss engineered movement allows for the knowing of the time in all major global cities. This is one of those unique functions I was speaking of. The soft brushed checkerboard stainless steel link bracelet with the deployment clasp and push button closure makes this the watch for the formal type of guy; as compared to the Frederique Constant Run About; seen in an earlier post with a more casual brown leather band.

Seiko Chronograph Quartz Men's Watch
Seiko Chronograph Quartz Men's Watch
This is a chronograph watch and a rather new Seiko model; coming out last year. If you want to be up on NEW then you will want to consider this watch with GPS satellite time keeping and time zone adjustment features with 40 time zones! A GPS time-keeping feature receives signals from satellites anywhere in the world! The band is from titanium. Titanium is a very light-weight metal and with diashield part of the band metal; it makes for a scratch-proof band. With such band and with the A/m feature — you can count on this watch being reliable for you many a year. A/m means anti-magnetic. Watches offering this feature are manufactured under international standards and must resist a direct current magnetic field of 4,800 A/m with accuracy to +- 30 seconds/day as measured before the test.

When your watch comes with a certificate of authenticity, manufacturer serial numbers, and a box that sports the TAG Heuer brand inside the lid; you know this is a special watch. The dial window is a scratch resistant synthetic sapphire. The hands are luminous; as are the hour markers. While it is a sport casual type of watch; it fits in well as a watch for the office with the grey toned dial face and black sub-dials.

The case diameter is a wide 41 millimeters with round anti-reflective sapphire window on silver dial. It has Swiss automatic movement and the flip side of the case is fully transparent to watch those Swiss engineered gears move. As it is a leather band, this would fit the sporty casual occasions but I see nothing wrong with wearing this to the office work environment. The calendar day and date are at three on the dial. If you love this watch; you’ll love the box it comes in with the TAG Heuer name inside the box lid. PROFESSIONAL in all it’s simplicity! Check price
Expect more

It’s a given that you should expect more with the price of these watches. MORE of the same accuracy and style and special functions as in the watches we have been highlighting. What you can also expect, of course, are some of the same familiar ‘faces’ that were in the best watches under $1,000. This is only logical! The best men’s watch under $2,000 had to start somewhere. (like your favorite make of a car; the car model changes but the maker stays same) MORE Swiss accuracy and improved watch design is what you can expect in automatic watches under $2,000.

Familiar faces

The watch brands shown today are the familiar faces of Tag Heuer, Versace, Frederique Constant, and Citizen shown in Best Watches Under $1,000.00 and The Quality of Quartz Brand watches. Also amongst the finest and leading brands of watches under $2,000.00 is the Seiko chronograph watch and Baume-Mercier 8688 Executive Automatic Watch. These are the best watches under $2000 because these watches have stood the ‘test of time.’ It’s good to buy a watch brand that you know well; when moving ‘up’ in the world of quality time-keeping. As written in an earlier post, TIME is money and you want the assurance that quality stays same even as the finer details improve.

Look for the details

Top Automatic Watches under $2000 have some key features to look for in this price range as compared to the same brand name under $1,000. The means of closure of the watch, the material found on the band and width of the band, and how thin or thick the band or dial case. Look at the way the hours are marked on the watch face, the type of calendar on the watch face, unique engineering functions that are found on the chronograph watch face. The type of movement of the watch. What warranties come with watches in this category? Look even to the package that holds your special watch. You have gone beyond just looking for basic. You have moved beyond the stage of your first car: four tires and a steering wheel. You moved up to luxury in the watch you wear to the office or your own business or on the golf links. That’s why we are giving you a closer look via the product review section of this blog post. Look for the details as mentioned, in each of the highlighted brands we show today.


Ok ... time to say it: “which watch works” for your lifestyle? Are you a devout and loyal one brand owner; as some car owners would never switch make of their automobiles. A Ford, Chevrolet, or Toyota always type of guy even if the model is different. Do you want same maker of watch with just that ‘added extra detail’ that speaks of your hard work and effort in life?

If you liked your Tag Heuer under $1,000 watch, you might want to begin your search for the best watch under $2000 looking at same brand. Perhaps you like to change completely; move to a brand that once was out of your reach. You wouldn’t be looking at the watches we are showing today, if you were not of a serious nature. Take your time reading the reviews of the watch features and functions.

Give thought to where you intend to wear your watch, what is necessity? what is a long awaited luxury? What makes you enjoy looking at your watch: are you the type who likes gadgets and mechanical or do you want simplicity of design? Do you like ‘extra style’ to impress or a more down-to-earth type of timepiece; simple elegance yet special features known only to you? What clothing do you wear most often; formal or casual? If formal suits, you might wish the gold tone cases or silver stainless steel, if more casual; a leather strap might work better. A mens watch in the under $2000 category will be a ‘forever’ gift to yourself or someone special in your life. A watch in this category is an investment in time.

The same investment in time you took to become educated in a special skill or knowledge, the hours of time you gave loyally to your business or the business you work with, the time it took to build your reputation for quality. When you wear the caliber of watch in the under $2000 category; you will be giving back to others more than just the ‘time of day.’ You will be inspiring others to work and persevere in their day-to-day labor. To learn value of time; using time effectively for benefit of others.
