Best watch $1,500-$2,000
Looking to get my grandson a watch this Christmas for graduating law school and passing the bar examination.

In your opinion, what's a great, versatile (can dress up and dress down) watch in the $1,500-$2,000 price range?

Thanks for your thoughtful responses and help.

Watches are personal. If spending 2k I'd let him pick it out with you tbh.

$2K for a watch? Cheapskate. This is the OT, we all have Rolexes that cost that much just to get them cleaned.

The Rockwell Commander Elite is a nice watch. It’s only $900. Get him this and put $1k in the box and he’ll be happier than a fig with two a-holes.

Tag, Omega, Breitling should all be in that range.

You may want to let him pick it out. I’m picky with watches and I’d hate to feel forced to wear something I really don’t like much simply because grandpa bought it for me.

Awesome gesture and idea, though.

Depends upon the style he likes but Movado has some nice ones in that range.

Omega is a solid bet in that price range - if you can find anything.

However, in that price range, I would give a hard look at the Nomos Campus Nacht. Conservative, easy to dress up or down, in-house movement, and a bit quirky (California dial, colored second-hand). Also, a realistic 38.5 mm size. Will not stick out at all, but will be reliable. Probably will not be popular choice around here, but I like it.

Any decent new Omega is going to be at least twice that amount. You can get a Tag, though.

You can find lower end Omegas or Breitlings in that range. Maybe a Tudor.

Plenty of Oris watches.

If it were me, I'd get a 1200 Oris Big Crown ProPilot and 500 bucks cash. But I have more heirloom type watches already, so if this is his first nice watch he may have a different perspective

Maybe a quartz watch. I wouldn't spend 2 grand on a quartz watch, though. Just my personal preference.

I don't really like cheap Omegas, but I can see someone who is going to have one 2000 dollar watch preferring a widely-known brand over Sinn or Ball or Oris

i was going to recommend the GOAT watch thread, "Let me pick your watch for you", but the embedded images aren't working for me.

are they working for anyone else?
