Editors’ Picks of the Week: Certina, Breguet, and Rolex

Great Watches Under $5,000 

Certina DS Action Diver Powermatic 80

Certina has always been famous for their diving watches. Since the 1960s, the brand has been producing exceptional timepieces to be used underwater by professionals and hobby divers alike. The DS Action line brings a collection of affordable yet sturdy and reliable wrist tools to the watch scene. The design is clean and simple: steel case, black rotating 60-minute diving bezel, steel bracelet with a wetsuit extension, and an easy-to-read dial. However, the Certina DS Action Diver Powermatic 80 doesn’t just offer great looks but also a robust, technically advanced movement. The Powermatic 80 is a mechanical self-winding caliber that provides an 80-hour power reserve. We’ve chosen the classic steel case paired with a black dial, but the DS Action Diver is available in numerous iterations, with options ranging from green to blue or even two-tone. The brand has a timepiece for everyone, but they all have one thing in common: They are awesome tool watches that are perfect for the beach and beyond.  

Enthusiast’s Corner: Rare and Exceptional Timepieces

Breguet Marine Automatic Blue

Breguet probably isn’t a brand you associate with sports watches. The company has been around since the late 18th century, making it one of the oldest names in the watch industry. Breguet stands for class, style, and serious watchmaking prowess – they are true watch industry royalty. That being said, like every great company, Breguet needs to reinvent itself every now and again and expand their target audience. According to the brand, the Marine line is based on traditional values but interprets them in a contemporary way to create more sporty timepieces. The Breguet Marine Automatic Blue is the epitome of this approach. The watch has unmistakable brand design elements like the case shape and Breguet-style hands but comes on a rubber strap and measures 40 mm across. These modern features make the Marine Automatic Blue an elegant yet sporty model from an industry giant.  

Iconic Timepieces: Great Value for Money

Rolex Submariner Date 116618LN

The Rolex Submariner is a watch that most people can pull off. It is a design icon and among the most recognizable models out there. The size of the Sub and its subtle, simple look contribute to its success and versatility. What’s more awesome than a Submariner? How about a solid gold one? The Rolex Submariner Date 116618LN is not your average diving watch, nor does it want to be. While the physical features are identical to the steel version, the 40-mm solid gold case and bracelet are a sight to behold. The Rolex Submariner 116618LN is an exciting, contemporary twist on an icon wrapped in precious metal. You need to have a certain mindset and attitude to rock this watch without being too flashy – but therein lies the beauty of this piece. Plus, it’s a model that you don’t have to worry about losing value. According to our Watch Collection, the 116618LN’s price just keeps going up.
