Rado’s new releases for 2016 have embraced the concept of lightness and streamlined, minimalist design. Perhaps best embodying this “less is more” aesthetic are this trio of new timepieces from the brand’s True Thinline collection, with three monochromatic color schemes.
As new watches from Basel and Geneva begin to hit retailers, let’s revisit last year’s Top 10 Best-Value Watches lists, which I assembled for my blog, Watch-Insider.com. We’ve covered my favorite chronograph watches and men’s dress watches already; now I put the spotlight on chronograph watches offering the best value for money.*
To be clear, I do not endeavor in this list to name the “cheapest” chronographs, but to recognize those that offer the most at their price point. I am sure that some brands might offer chronograph watches similar to these for less money; to me, that doesn’t necessarily make that other watch more attractive. The price differences in many of these cases are usually very small, in any case. To reiterate from my previous lists: this is an alphabetical listing and not a ranking. As always, the watches listed here are my own personal favorites. No jury has voted, no one has whispered anything into my ear, and — most importantly — no brand has paid me to be listed here. If you would like more information about one of the watches on the list, please use the search function on my blog. I have reported on all of them during the year, and you are likely to find many more pictures and additional technical information on them. Many of the watches have also been covered separately here on WatchTime.com.
