Christmas 2022 is a stone's throw away. So, that means only one thing for most of us: The final Christmas shopping mad rush! In this first part of a series of Christmas watch buying guides, I've put together a handful of interesting watches between $1,000 and $2,500 that I think will serve as the perfect present for a family member or friend that you think is looking at stepping into the wonderful world of watches.
In this guide, I've put together some really special watches that might be the perfect Christmas present you've been looking for. These watches cost between $1,000 and $2,500 and include models from TAG Heuer, Oris, Longines and Maurice Lacroix.
Maurice Lacroix Aikon Chronograph
Just a smidge below the $2,500 mark gets you one awesome Christmas present. The Maurice Lacroix Aikon Chronograph is an epic piece that serves as one of the best all-round Christmas watches on this list. Love it.
Frederique Constant Manufacture Slimline
The Frederique Constant Manufacture Slimline is a brilliant piece that offers so much bang for your buck, exactly what you would want for a Christmas present. It has a manufacture movement, beautiful proportions and the classical look and feel of a traditional dress watch, without the five-figure price-tag.
Oris Aquis Date
Green is the new black, so why not treat someone (or yourself) to a very affordable way to get into this new trend. Here is the Oris Aquis Date, one of the best watches you can get for Christmas.
Longines Heritage Military
Longines reigns supreme in the territory of sub-$2,500 watches. Here is the incredible Heritage Military. Drawing inspiration from military watches of generations ago, the Heritage Military is a great Christmas gift idea.
NOMOS Glashütte Orion 38
NOMOS Glashütte represents incredible value for money, and the Orion 38 is a perfect example of that. Well designed, well made and well suited for anyone even vaguely interested in watches.
Longines Heritage Classic Chronograph 1946
The second Longines in this Christmas watch buying guide is the Heritage Classic Chronograph 1946. Like the Heritage Military, the Longines Heritage Classic Chronograph 1946 is inspired by watches of yesteryear, has a beautiful aesthetic and would serve as one of the coolest Christmas gifts.
TAG Heuer Carrera Day-Date
The TAG Heuer Carrera Day-Date is a staple for the perfect entry-level watch and is one of the best examples of a sub-$2,500 watch. Great styling and an interesting movement makes the TAG Heuer Carrera Day-Date a very considerable gift for Christmas this year.
