Great Watches Under $5,000

Junghans Meister Telemeter Chronoscope

 

It’s no secret: Chrono24 Magazine readers love chronographs. Our data confirms it. Many of you also enjoy vintage-inspired or heritage pieces. This Junghans Meister Telemeter ticks both boxes. I personally feel it is one of the nicest homages to a bygone model ever created. Most importantly, it is very close to the original but boasts an updated look and upgraded movement. Junghans’ designers have struck the perfect balance of old and modern. This watch is clean and easy to read. What’s more, the size is great, and the dial is a treat to look at. The fact that it’s a chronograph (or better yet, a chronoscope) with both a telemeter and a tachymeter is an added bonus. While the concept clearly has roots in an earlier era, the Junghans Meister Telemeter doesn’t look like a copy of an old model. Its design is timeless, and the 40.8-mm case feels modern. Finally, if you’re not a fan of white dials, this model is also available with a black dial.

 

Enthusiast’s Corner: Rare and Exceptional Timepieces

H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Perpetual Calendar

 

The Endeavour collection is the largest in H. Moser & Cie’s portfolio. While every model looks simple and elegant, most of them are hiding an exciting complication. You’ll find flying hours, tourbillons, or – in this case – a perpetual calendar. The 40.8-mm H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Perpetual Calendar features a manual movement, a 7-day power reserve, and a perpetual date display, meaning you don’t have to adjust it at the end of every month. As an example of haute horlogerie, the case comes in 18-karat white gold and contains an in-house movement. Furthermore, the blue fumé dial is truly exquisite. The H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Perpetual Calendar’s movement has a stop-seconds mechanism, a month indicator, and a leap year indicator on its side. This intricate and high-end timepiece should be on every watch fan’s radar.

 

Iconic Timepieces: Great Value for Money

Citizen Promaster Aqualand

 

The Promaster Aqualand is a legendary quartz diving watch from the Japanese watchmaking powerhouse Citizen. Despite being one of the most affordable watches we’ve ever featured in this section of our Editor’s Picks, its appearance is well deserved. Introduced in 1985, the watch quickly became a favorite among divers, athletes, and everyday people alike. The Citizen Promaster complies with the ISO 6425 standard for water resistance. This standard goes way beyond conventional qualifications for water resistance and reinforces the Promaster’s status as a solid tool watch. Beyond that, the Promaster Aqualand’s affordability, robust build, and many features add to its uniqueness. The Citizen Promaster Aqualand proves that becoming an iconic watch has nothing to do with the price tag and everything to do with usability, design, and dedicated fans.
