Editor’s note: There’s real weight behind the phrase “Swiss Made”, which is, in many ways, synonymous with quality. Oftentimes itís also synonymous with expensive. But that doesn’t need to be the case, as these six watches, all of which were released in 2018, come in under $1500. Bonus, they all come from well-known, respected brands.* A Swiss watch is a near-universally recognised symbol for quality, precision and tradition. And while thatís all well and good, thereís another thing that fine Swiss watches tend to be synonymous with ó and thatís high sticker prices. And broadly speaking, that perception is true ó I constantly find myself uttering phrases like ďthis $60,000 watch offers tremendous valueĒ, and Justin recently went into a little bit of detail as to why thatís the case.

Just because the median price of a Swiss mechanical watch is the equivalent of a decent car, that doesnít mean there arenít outliers. So, weíve rounded up six quality mechanical offerings, mostly from large, established brands with storied histories, all offering watches at under $1500. So if youíre looking for your first…
