While price doesn’t really factor in the decision-making process behind the WatchPro Watches of the Year issue, value is of vital importance.
However, the fact that this Pilot 5492 from Time Products-owned Limit sells for just £29.99 cannot go unheralded.
Thirty of your British pounds doesn’t buy you a great deal these days, so the fact that Limit have produced a black ion-plated metal watch with Japanese quartz day/date movement on a brown buffalo-grain strap with luminous hands and hour marker for less than that sum must really be celebrated.
The watch also comes with a two-year manufacturer warranty meaning that if you only count on the watch functioning for that period (it will almost certainly last longer) then it will cost you just four pence a day for all your timekeeping needs.
The 43mm watch is also a fairly handsome beast too, offering plenty of wrist presence into the already attractive bargain.
