    42mm-45mm Dress Watch Under $5k What are the options?

    Looking for a white dial dress watch under $5k (preowned or new). Key is I want a bigger dial, maybe 42mm-45mm.

    Here's what I've found so far. Am I missing anything? Any recommendations?

    42mm (probably out of budget):

    I love that Oris 110. One of those was up for sale on the forums a while back. If I had the money I'd have been all over it.

    There's the Omega DeVille Chronometer. I think it's 41mm.

    Something a little different, the Dornbluth 99.1. I believe 42mm. Kinda resembles the IWC.

    +1 for the Dornbluth (but the version with thermally blued applied numerals).

    Dornblueth has several models that are very appealing...but too big for me. IIRC, yes, they're 42mm. Go on over to watchbuys.com; they're the US distributors. While there, also check out the Thomas Ninchritz. And heck, Sinn has some quite nice looking dress watches.

    I'll take this in a different direction...how about the "poor man's" Laurent Ferrier Galet Square...a Panerai Radiomir.

    Check out the Nivrel Coeur de la Sarre series at 42mm: Coeur de la Sarre: Sarrebruck - NIVREL

    You could always check out a Breitling. The Transocean Chronographs are 43mm. Also Longines has a few 42-44mm white dialed watches that could possibly pass as a dress watch.

    If you double the budget perhaps you could get a Piaget Altiplano XL (43mm):
