Top Watches Under $1500 AUD

I love classic watches, simple and not too over the top. From what I have learnt it seems the more classic the watch the more expensive but don't worry as I have a list of my favorite classic watches all priced under $1500 AUD.


Victorinox, Alliance Mechanical RRP $950 AUD

Like its owner, the Alliance Watch is the strong, silent type. It flies under the radar and it never makes a fuss. But take a closer look and you'll find details that reveal complete confidence beneath the surface. Its design is subtle and elegant. It’s there to do a job; and to look good doing it. But the Alliance does more that just tell time – it tells the world that you know exactly what you're doing.

Shinola Detroit, Runwell RRP $860 AUD

With a coin edge of PVD Gold, this timepiece is a small twist on the classic Runwell style. Featuring a leather strap and blue dial, it is backed up with the highly accurate power of the Argonite 715.2 quartz movement making this marriage of style and substance a definite winner.

March LAB, AM1 RRP $1494 AUD

The AM1 stands as the firstborn of the AM series. Its curves are a tribute to the eponymous style of the Sixties: simple, elegant with nuances of attitude and swagger.
The AM1 subtly and successfully twists the past and present aesthetic codes of watch making.

Tissot Heritage Visodate RRP $1310 AUD

Back in the 1950s, Tissot celebrated its centenary with a series of innovations – one of which was the integration of a date function to the automatic mechanism in a watch called Visodate. The Tissot Heritage Visodate translates nostalgia into contemporary timepieces dedicated to detail. A gently curved dial mirrors the domed sapphire glass, both geared to showcasing a clearly visible day and date.

The timepiece also has an elegantly contoured case, which comes in different sizes, so with the leather strap or metal bracelet it will fit your wrist beautifully.
