I've been a pretty vocal advocate for micro-brand watches, and for good reason. I've found that many micro-brands are able to deliver excellent quality products, and for great prices. This isn't typically a knock on more established luxury watch brands, but given the nature of the industry, smaller teams operating with direct to consumer sales models are able to better optimize their final retail prices. But if micro-brands start to drive up their prices, then there should be no reason to avoid larger brands like Hamilton, Frederique Constant, Certina, Tissot, Alpina, etc. These brands have been around for a while, and some of their watches are pretty impressive.

Since Baltic and Lorier decided to venture close to the $1000 category, with mostly typical GMT watch designs and specs, I decided I would take a look at some of the other options available in this category. The Baltic and Lorier were very well received, but there are other GMT watches out there at similar prices. The Frederique Constant Yacht Timer GMT is one such watch; although following a very different design aesthetic. This particular watch has a retail price of around $2000, but can be found close to the $1000 mark online.

Beautiful watch. I first came across FC when our local high-end department store decided to stop being an authorised dealer. The FC looked really nice and i bought it with a big discount. It turned out to be a collaboration between FC and Riva, a luxury Italian speed boat maker. It’s a GMT and now I totally love it.
