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.

The dark blue hour and second hands also make for ease of reading the time and the hands are luminous. A classic!

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.

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?

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?

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.
