I personally also love Nixon watches, super casual and functional. Their whole line is also < $1000 I believe.
Yes, low end Cartier are in around the 5k mark, and rarely worth it till you get to the 7k tange depending on what your requirements are.
Nixon has some very nice watches ranging from about 150 all the way to about 2500. Depends what you're looking for. But if you're looking at nixons in the 1000+ range, I might recommend looking more towards Hamilton at that point.
Again, depends what you're looking for.
I have a 1000$ Nixon and a 1500$ Hamilton, there's definitely a different market for each and build type.
Nixon battery operated watches stop at about 1500, then they (use to) switch to automatic winding, using the same internals as Hamilton and others. But lesser build quality and similar pricing.
Again, just my opinion.
