    His topic states 1000 - 1800 and his post stated less than $2000.
    So.. yeah.

    If you like the style of Montblanc and Baume et Mercier, you might also look at Maurice Lacroix and Longines. Maybe Raymond Weil too.

    For your first >$500 watch, I don't think that an in-house movement should be a priority, although much very nice can be said for Nomos. Oh, don't forget Frederique Constant either. They make some very nice stuff at a good value.

    Yes, you've correctly repeated that his post asks for less than $2000. What's your point?

    Personally, I've been eyeballing the blue quartz Grand Seiko, which thanks to the dropping yen is now well under $2000 at Seiya. That's a fantastic value, but only for someone with wrists of, say, 6.5" or less.

    Edox and Revue Thommen also makes some nice pieces right in your budget.

    Grinds hard stones to meal;

    And beats high mountain down."

    I'm not sure if an in house movement around 2000 will be better than an ETA.
    A well finished case and dial with ETA can cost 6000 or more (Panerai, Hublot, IWC, etc).


    If in house movement from a high grade manufacturer is important for you, your best bet is to spend a little more for a pre-owned JLC, Zenith, Girard perregaux (...maybe around 4000?).

    In my opinion in that price you can find Omega speedmaster preowned. Its very cool watch, it could be a great option.
