Nice! Does it have a display back? I bet that would be nice a leather strap! Is it pretty thin?
What's most people's reccomendations for around the 2.5k mark?
A little but over but I'd put this on the list.
Second hand Omega Speedy Pro. An absolutely stonking watch.
I bought my dad one a few years ago for his 70th, won't wear it in case he damages it.
I would look at Tudor, go to a independant store not the likes of Goldsmiths and you should get at least 10% list price
I'd personally look for something a bit different and feels special; Mont Blanc do some great watches at this price point, Hamilton (you won't need to spend 2.5k) or Tudor.
I'd personally avoid the Seamaster/Speedy as you see so many of them around. There's nothing worse than spending 2.5k on a watch and then a walking into a meeting the next week and half of the people are wearing them. I get more questions/comments from people when I'm wearing my Hamilton (Jazzmaster) vs my Breitling (Superocean Heritage)
I'd go Tudor all day for that.
I'd possibly spend a little more for the Pelagos in Ti
I can totally appreciate the craftsmanship and that they're the quintessential of that price range, but forgive my ignorance, but can't stand the look of Tudor or omega. Not wanting a bracelet so leaning towards breitling as a lot appeal to me (some beg to differ about the direction they have gone in etc) but always appealed.
Thanks for the suggestions thus far.
I have Black Bay on nato, not bracelet fyi
I ca't stand Breitling, they are possibly the worst brand I could think of. They rank even lower than Tag IMO and that's saying something, at least tag has some moderately interesting models.
If you like Breitling then go second hand as that will open up far more options to you. At retail they tank, so you'll be able to pick up rather tastier models when pre-owned.
Reckon will nip and pick one of these up at weekend
My god that's delicious!
I've been looking at Romain Gauthier watches... their Logical One in rose gold is BEYOND stunning.
I appreciate the craftsmanship but that's far too distracting IMO.
Distracting from what?
My missus says I can't have one
Something daft about having to sell the house, both cars and still not even having half the money to buy one
Pffft what's all this common sense stuff about...?
Just WOW A thing of beauty
