Daily Drivers: Great Watches for Under 5,000 Euros

IWC Schaffhausen Pilot’s Chronograph Ref. 3706


The brand from Schaffhausen is famous for their collection of pilot’s watches. This understated chronograph is one of the reasons and with pure IWC DNA. A simplistic design which shows the military heritage of these timepieces combined with the necessary tool watch functionalities.

For everybody who’s just interested in a perfect every-day watch it offers a wearable size of 39mm, a chronograph, day and date display as well as the choice to wear it on a leather strap or a steel bracelet.


Enthusiast’s Corner: Rare or Exceptional Timepiece

Audemars Piguet Grande et Petite Sonnerie


Some watches are called grand complications and are considered the pinnacle of fine watchmaking. Then there are masterpieces that are in an even higher league just like this harmless looking dress watch.

Similar to a minute repeater, a grande et petit sonnerie tells you the actual time in an audible way by chiming the number of hours, quarters and minutes in different tones. But rather than “just” repeating the current time when you active a pusher, a sonnerie is also able, to chime automatically.

Even for haute horlogerie standards it is extremely difficult to create a sonnerie and therefore these masterpieces are very rare and valuable.


Iconic Timepieces: Great Value for Your Money

Rolex Datejust 41


Even though the Daytona and the Submariner may be slightly more famous, the Datejust is probably the most important Rolex model. Just for the simple reason that it represents the perfect middle from every angle. The Datejust is sporty enough to be worn every day and elegant enough to be worn with a suit.

What makes it even more interesting are its almost endless configuration possibilities, and each single variant has a different appearance. You can choose between different sizes, materials, dial colors, numeral styles, bracelet types and a smooth steel- or a fluted gold bezel.
