For under $10,000 you can look like a million bucks.
It’s no secret that we’re living in an increasingly informal world these days. There aren’t too many occasions for getting seriously dressed up (at least not for most of us), but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have a nice dress watch in your arsenal anyway. The best dress watches can be dressed up or down too, so you can make that jeans-and-a-sweater look feel even sharper than it already is with the right timekeeper. The only rub is that a great dress watch can sometimes set you back quite a lot of coin – though it doesn’t have to. Here our editors round up their favorite dress watches that come in under the five-figure mark. Some are precious metals, some are stainless steel; some sit closer to “everyday” watches while others are going to be relegated to special occasions; some are traditional and some are quite modern. The thing they all have in common? You would be a very happy person indeed with one on your wrist.
Prices vary, but for vintage 9P watches in gold expect to pay between $2,000 to $4,000, depending on model.
