TOP 5 swiss quartz movement for affordable price

Good afternoon, watch lovers and readers of my blog!

We all know how expensive mechanics can be , especially when it comes to premium Swiss brands ( importantly, I’m talking about the real “Swiss Made”, and not just trying to impersonate it ).

In an attempt to get an equally high-quality watch a little cheaper, or perhaps just out of personal wishes, many buyers tend to choose chronometers with quartz calibers inside.

About the most interesting available, high-quality and reliable Swiss quartz watch, dear readers, in today’s publication!

The first hero of today’s collection is the beautiful and laconic Longines Conquest VHP

1) Longines Conquest VHP

Longines is one of the oldest and most respected Swiss watchmakers , highly renowned throughout the world . Of course, the company gives priority to the production of mechanical watches , but, unlike most other brands, it does not forget about quartz accessories, taking them very seriously.

The Conquest VHP ( Very High Precision ) model is one of the most interesting in its segment, boasting as many as 13 different versions. The watches are made in a rather modern style , however, they are very laconic and refined, somewhat reminiscent of the classic ones .

The chronometer has a 41-millimeter-diameter steel case, 50 meters water resistance, an anti-reflective front sapphire crystal , a choice of different dial colors and a steel bracelet / rubber strap .

Thanks to the high-precision quartz movement , the Conquest VHPs have an impressive +/- 5 seconds per year accuracy .

The cost of these watches is about $ 700- $ 1000 ( at the current exchange rate – 50-70 tr.). As for me, this is a very worthy watch for quite reasonable money, and to get high-precision and high-quality Longines up to 100 tr. – extremely good.

Second watch in collection - Tissot PRC200 Quartz Sports Chronograph

2) Tissot PRC200

Let’s go down a step below, where we are greeted by the beautiful quartz Tissot PRC200 – the most worthy representative of “affordable Switzerland “.

The PRC200 is not a simple three-hand watch, but a real sports chronograph on the quartz ETA G10.211 caliber .

The design is the perfect quintessence of a sports chronograph , with rectangular hands, contrasting bright colors, tachymeter scale and large, comfortable pushers.

The model is presented in a huge variety of different versions of straps and dials ( everyone will find something of their own ), however, each has a water resistance of 200 meters , a chronograph with three dials (measuring up to 1/10 of a second), a sapphire bezel.

The diameter of the steel case is universal 42 millimeters , the thickness is 12 millimeters . The watch has a screw-down crown and a case back .

The cost of this watch is pleasantly pleasing – only $ 300 . Of course, Tissot is not Longines, but for ~ 20,000 rubles , the PRC200 is perhaps one of the best options if you are looking for a Swiss quartz watch .

The last watch in the collection - the legendary TAG Heuer Monaco

3) TAG Heuer Monaco

Let’s return to the segment of prestigious Swiss watches , where the legendary TAG Heuer Monaco is one of the best quartz watches .

“Monaco”, without a shadow of a doubt, is an extremely recognizable watch and, in a sense, an ” icon ” of the era. Square body, laconic style and, of course, many variations .

But what to say, this watch was preferred by Steve McQueen himself and appeared on the screen in the classic racing film of 1970 ” Le Mans ” ( which, by the way, partly made them very popular ).

Most Monacos are quite expensive , but if you want a recognizable and, most importantly, high-quality wristwatches, I will definitely recommend you the most reliable quartz version .

The watch has a small seconds hand with a separate dial at 6 o’clock, a small date window at 3 o’clock, as well as all the elements of the legendary model.

The case is 37 mm in diameter , made of steel , the clear contrasting dial is reliably protected by a convex sapphire crystal, water resistance is 100 meters

Factory strap – leather, black, alligator leather with a classic steel buckle.

There is also a phosphor, but it is applied only to the arrows.

The cost of these TAGs is expectedly higher than the cost of previous models, because, after all, one should not forget who TAG Heuer is and what level this name is.

The Monaco quartz movement in this reference is priced at $ 2,150 , making it one of the most affordable Monacos , and also a great deal for Swiss quartz in general .
