July 5th, 2022

Contrary to popular opinion, you do not have to break the bank for a piece of watchmaking extravagance. Innovations in the industry have led to a greater variety of options that cater to a wide range of budgets, needs, and aesthetic preferences. We have selected some of our favorite timepieces from our designer inventory in our Hing Wa Lee Jewelers showrooms that exemplifies the quality achievable at every price point.

Under $500

The unparalleled quality and craftsmanship of Swiss watchmaking are evidenced in Tissot timepieces. This incredibly inclusive brand offers a range of affordable yet exquisite watches, such as this minimalist-styled, stainless steel piece with elegant indices and a sparkling strap. A watch like this will quickly go from the office to a fancy dinner party. With a price tag of only $240, it is an attainable piece of watchmaking excellence.

$500 - $2,000

Inspired by the motor-racing world, celebrated brand TAG Heuer designs many collections in this more affordable price range. These pieces are built for high performance and precision. For instance, this sporty stainless steel piece, with a price tag at $1,550, features a number of complications to keep the wearer both informed and stylish. The rubber strap is moisture-wicking and comfortable as well as durable.

$2,000 - $4,000

When it comes to timepieces, it's typical for higher price range watches to be more elaborate in design. This Jazzmaster watch from Hamilton is an example. Its partial skeleton dial reveals some of the piece's inner workings, and a diamond-studded bezel adds plenty of sparkle. At a price point of $2,295, this watch is truly a work of art.

$4,000 - $6,000

Elegant and refined, this IWC Portofino watch is crafted with a sleek, polished bezel, deep green dial, and green alligator strap for a fashion-forward yet understated piece. A higher price range affords the piece characteristics like diamond indices, automatic movement, and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. Coming in at $5,300, this watch is perfect for a multitude of occasions and is sure to retain its beauty and function for decades to come.

$6,000 +

Immense attention to detail and precise watchmaking characterize the collections by designer Jaeger-LeCoultre. This Rendez-Vous watch has an absolutely stunning watch dial crafted to offer a visually engaging, textured look as well as an exhibition-style back that reveals some of the machinery under the piece’s surface.
