You can get a great watch on a budget, but the real fact of the matter is that if you want a watch to wear for the rest of your life, you’re going to need to spend a bit more. Sure, we think a Rolex Daytona or AP are beautiful watches, but let’s be real, not many people can afford those pricey wrist rockets. That said, you can also find a beautiful luxury watch for under $1500 for that special someone this V-Day. Watches under $1500 carry all the hallmarks of a luxury watch without the five-figure price tag.
Don’t get us wrong, $1500 isn’t cheap. A high-quality timepiece is — and always has been — an investment. But while the entry point for the Rolexes of the world stands at around $5000, grabbing a luxury watch under $1500 dollars is a task worth undertaking.
So, to save you time and money, we asked our friends at Bob’s Watches to round up the best watches for under $1500. Here are some of the best investment watches that will appreciate just like the love you have with your valentine.
Oris Divers Sixty-Five Bronze Pink Dial & Leather Strap
Oris released the polarizing “Cotton Candy” edition of the Diver’s 65 in 2021, and it’s been gaining momentum ever since. The collection is distinguished by a stunning bronze finish and pastel-colored dials in green, blue, and pink shades
Oris Art Blakey Limited Edition Stainless Steel
The Oris Artelier was developed by the brand to pay tribute to Art Blakey, an American jazz drummer. At eight of the hour markers are claws that resemble those on Art’s bass drum. Additionally, the case back is decorated as a cymbal. If you appreciate the history of jazz, then this limited edition Oris might suit your wrist.
Ladies Longines DolceVita Stainless Steel
The Longines DolceVita is contemporary elegance personified. The rectangular case will flatter nearly any wrist with nicely rounded corners and an accompanying 5-piece link bracelet. It looks sleek yet elegant and will match any jewelry in versatile stainless steel. What’s more, you can wear this stunning wristwatch anywhere your day takes you with confidence because it also features water resistance up to 3 bar and a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
Tissot Le Locle Rose Gold PVD
The Tissot Le Locle is one of our top picks because it boasts a chronometer-rated ETA 2824-2 automatic movement and a stylish rose gold PVD case. That’s right, this watch has a reliable movement, and the luxury of a Swiss watch with a rose gold-tone finish, all for a very attractive price.
