    €2K Budget - What watch would you buy?

    I'm probably going to buy a Tag Heuer Carrera. It will be my first automatic watch.

    For ref: 2000 EUR / 2750 USD / 1650 GBP

    If I was looking something dressy > Nomos Glashutte.

    If a rugged beater is needed > Damasko, Sinn.

    If has to be Swiss > Longines, Frederique Constant, Omega.

    what does the carrera you want look like? there are a hundred different models. suggestions would be easier if you posted a pic.

    surprised it took 2 replies to get to it but you should be able to get a Speedy Pro for around that price, paid 2800 for mine brand new a little over 2 years ago

    That Tag is a nice looker. For that money, I guess, I would also look at Omega, and maybe Tudor for just a bit more. Breitling may be an option as well. There are lots of choices in that price range.

    I'm really starting to appreciate Longines' offerings, particularly their Heritage lineup.
