Best Automatic Watches From $1,000 To $200

Thinking of getting an automatic watch? Wanting to buy the Best Automatic Watch but don’t want to spend more than a thousand to get one?

Well, that’s definitely possible!

Of course, High-End and Luxury brands such as Rolex, Omega, Patek Philippe etc. are out of reach. But that does not mean the automatic watches priced lower than those brands are no good.

For under $1,000, you can still get a very beautiful and high quality watch, with great automatic movement running inside it (some even have in-house movement).

But first, if you’re new to automatic watch, check out my beginner’s guides by clicking the links on the sidebar. Or, you can just read the summary below on automatic watch, what is it, and why I absolutely adore this kind of timepiece (until I made a website out of it… LOL!).

Now, what are the best automatic watches around?

I’ve decided to list down some of the best automatic watches in 2017, grouped into 3 major price ranges i.e $1,000 to $700, $700 to $500 and $500 to $200.

In my view, $1,000 is the upper limit for affordability of watches and since this site is only dedicated to affordable watches, I’ve used the value as the limit.

By the way, I’ve also written another list of the best affordable automatic watches specifically for watches under the $200 mark.

 

Now, let’s take a look at the best automatic watches in 2017:

Disclaimer: This list was created in October 2017 and was accurate at that point of time. The price of the watches might change from then due to seasonal sales and availability.

  1. Hi Isaac,

    Excellent work! So much to learn about watches, who knew.
    Automatic is the way to go for sure. Who wants the hassle of replacing the battery?

    Actually, a new watch for my father is on my list of things to buy for X-mas. I need something lightweight for him.
    Any suggestions would be really appreciated.

    Santa might bring me the Tissot PRS 516…lol

    Happy Holidays!

      HI Edwin. Yes I knew someone would agree with me =) Who wants to be inconvenienced by a suddenly dead watch right?

      For a lightweight watch, I’d say titanium or a rubber/plastic based casings. For titanium watches, you can check out the Seiko Shogun SBDC029 watch above (in the $1,000 to $700 group). It’s a great looking diver’s watch that wears much lighter than what it appears.

      For rubber/plastic case, most of them are quartz watches. But Swatch did release the Swatch Sistem51, an automatic watch in their famous plastic casing. It’s a funky line up of watches (just what you’d expect from Swatch) but there’s also the more reserved models with single colors (black, blue, etc) that might be more suitable for your father.

      Have a look at both watches and let me know what you think =)

  2. My son wants a watch for Christmas, so this information comes at the perfect time. I am going to go thru all your recommendations, and see which one will be best for him. I had not heard of an automatic watch….learn something new everyday. But this will be perfect for him. Are any of the automatic waterproof? I want to make sure it is, just in case he decides to jump in the pool with it on.

    1. Author

      Hi there. Actually, waterproof (or the more widely used term water resistance) is very common with any watches, be it automatic or quartz. Most watches nowadays have at least a 30 m rating of water resistance. Theoretically it’s sufficient for a swimming pool but it really depends on whether you have the guts to do so. A water resistance of 100 m is usually suggested for any water related activities. And yes, automatic watch can even has up to 1000 m water resistance =)

      Regards.

  3. Hi Isaac,

    Great review!

    I was just looking to buy a watch on the net for my husband, and I didn’t know what to choose. The comparisons really help in making a decision.

    I really like the Hamilton Khaki King Scuba because my husband dives quite a lot and this would be handy! How deep can you go down in the water with this watch? Also, I would like to know if it’s waterproof or water resistant? It would be great to know:) Thank you!

      Hi Daniella. Thanks for visiting and I’m glad that you like this post. The Khaki King Scuba has a water resistance of 100 m so technically it can go down to 100 m below water. 

      And yes, it’s waterproof or water resistant. It means the water will not seep into the watch even at the rated water resistance (100 m).

      Hope this helps. Let me know if you need other information.

      Cheers =) 

  4. I would have no clue how to buy a watch for a man. I would end up doing one of several things…getting the wrong kind, getting one that goes punk dead thus wasting my money or spending too much when I could have gotten it cheaper. This post would actually enable me to make an informed decision so I don’t waste my money not to mention getting something he doesn’t want. By showing the rankings compared to other products in such things as uniqueness, versatility, value for the money, style,and movement, I can actually make an informed purchase on a gift that is likely to make both me and the person I give it to happy.

      Hi Lisa. Many thanks for visiting my site. Indeed, it can be quite a hassle to buy a watch for a man. One trick that I can teach you is to observe what kind of watch (read my guide on the types of watches HERE) that he always wear. From there, you need to research for the latest watch in that particular watch type and buy it as a gift for him.

      For example, some guys are into fitness tracking watches (fitbit, etc). If you know he is into this watch type, your money is wasted buying him a sleek dress watch because he won’t even use it. What you can do is to look up the latest watch or most popular watch in that type and buy it as a gift. This is a foolproof way to buy the best watch gift for any man =)

      Cheers!

  5. To be honest, I didn’t even know that automatic watches existed. Running out of battery is a major problem and my main concern with traditional watches. However, I can not afford to spend even 200$ on a watch. By the price and characteristics, I suppose that automatic watches are vastly superior to traditional ones? Do you have any suggestions for cheaper watches?

      Hi John. You can also check my list of the best automatic watches under $200. By the way, if you’re worried about running out on battery, why don’t you use solar watches? It’s readily rechargeable just by wearing it and a full charge can lasts up to 6 months.

      Cheers!
