How to Start a Collection for Under $1,000 - Part 9

Watch collecting is definitely a daunting hobby to get into, and with so many types of watches out there deciding how to start your collection can be a tall order. Luckily for you we’ve written up part 9 of our series on starting up a watch collection for under $1000. Here are 3 different watches that we think will serve you no matter the occasion. Prices seen below are from our website without promo codes


The RA-AC0M 38m, in white – Far and away one of the most popular watches we’ve released in recent memory. This is definitely a piece we’d recommend for any new fledgling watch collection. Coming in a more classically sized 38 mm case and a beautiful subtle white sunburst dial, this watch is great for any occasion. ($270)

Symphony IV, in Blue, on stainless steel – We know that despite our best efforts, sometimes life happens and our watches get those unwanted dings and scratches. That’s why every collection should have at least one watch with a sapphire crystal. Consider this watch to be the dressiest of the bunch. ($280)


Kanno, in black, on rubber – Every watch collection needs something you can just throw on at a moment’s notice and for us, it's the Kanno. The comfortable rubber strap might have you forget that it’s even there, but when you look down at the 44.5mm case you’ll see a watch that is ready to go anywhere. It's as perfect for lounging at the house as it is lounging on the beach. ($285)

This collection rounds out to $845 so there’s plenty of budget left in case you want to pick up extra straps or bracelets!
