Called “budget” timepiece or “entry-level luxury” affordable watch: For many, affordable watches is the first step to become a lifelong passion. Fortunately, there are many middle and low mechanical watches on the market price is less than $ 1,000.And the one of affordable watches is Longines HydroConquest .
Longines is an important brand in the Swatch Group, positioned in a price range below Omega and above Tissot. The 43-mm Longines HydroConquest is a true diving watch. I selected the reference L3.618.104.22.168, which has a self-winding movement and a blue bezel and dial. The bracelet can be extended to wear over your diving suit, the bezel is unidirectional, and the crown is screw-down – features every divers’ watch should include. Although they retail a bit above $1,000, you can often find one with a slight discount bringing it just below that price.
