Christmas 2022 Watch Buying Guide: $2,500 - $5,000

Next up in the Christmas 2022 Watch Buying Guide series, I'll be looking at watches priced between $2,500 to $5,000. This price segment is dominated by a handful of brands, including the likes of Omega, TAG Heuer, Grand Seiko and Breitling. So, you can expect some pretty interesting watches with sound horological merit to feature.

Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight

The Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight presents some exceptional watchmaking for not that much money, with all things considered. Extremely popular, highly coveted and equally as respected, the Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight is an incredible Christmas gift.

Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra

At this price point, it really doesn't get any better than the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra. With its simplistic design, exceptional execution and that brilliant METAS certified Co-Axial Master Chronometer, you'd be hard pressed to find a better watch than the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra.

Longines Master Collection

Longines still has a footprint in this price range, with the Master Collection being a really special example. Chock-full of tech, the Longines Master Collection is a very affordable watch to experience some pretty complicated watchmaking.

Longines Avigation Bigeye

The Longines Avigation Bigeye is another piece that sits justifiably so in this list. It balances old-school charm with modern horological technology.

TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph

For many, the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph is the entry watch. So, I thought it a no-brainer to include it as one of the best Christmas gifts you can buy in 2022.

Grand Seiko Heritage Spring Drive

Imagine unwrapping a Grand Seiko Heritage Spring Drive on Christmas! Grand Seiko represents some of the best watchmaking to come out of Japan, and it can go toe-to-toe with the Swiss giants. The Grand Seiko Heritage Spring Drive is a beautiful example of a watch that does so many things so damn well. A surefire way to win Christmas.

Omega Seamaster Diver 300m

Like the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra, the Omega Seamaster Diver 300m is an incredible way to get your foot in the door of some very serious watchmaking. One of the best Christmas gifts money can buy at this price point, the Seamaster Diver 300m is one of the best modern Omega watches you can get.

Breitling Navitimer 8 Day-Date

The Breitling Navitimer 8 Day-Date is a solid way to get into the Breitling maison. It's a durable, highly wearable and highly technical watch that would definitely tick the boxes of being an incredible Christmas gift for almost anyone.
