    Celebratory watch purchase

    So I just recently got my real estate license and have started work as such, and I think it's about time to treat myself to a new toy. I have been looking for a few months for a watch that I just couldn't live without, unfortunately nothing has quite jumped out to me that was in my price range (under $4500 after online discounts)

    I was hoping I could get some good new options on here. The style I have really fallen in love with is a black leather strap and dial with rose gold hands and markers. That's absolutely not mandatory, I'm just looking for something dressy but with a little excitement on it too. Not to be too difficult or anything.....

    Welcome aboard! Many options in that price range. Zenith jumps to mind and really JLC if you stretch a bit. Post photos of what you like thus far and you will get more suggestions and better ones. Good luck!

    Welcome! Congrats on your achievement! Do you want a gold case too? Or stainless steel? You may not have many options if you want a solid gold case - most will be plated under that budget (which is very healthy for SS, just not so for gold). Actually plated will be much cheaper.

    This Ball trainmaster 120 has a gold case but is $6000 - dunno what sort of discounts are available.



    You can fit a perfectly nice $30 aftermarket leather strap to pretty much any watch so don't let a bracelet or brown strap put you off.

    Welcome! You really do have a lot of great options in that budget, but first thing that comes to mind for me, is an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra like this one. Hope that helps! Name:  item_L_4252434_1035972.jpg

    Id suggest you go to Amazon....Have a look in your price range....That will give you the most info. the fastest.
    that's what many of us do here....Look at Longines.
    Use Amazon as a reference, then come back and we might be able to give you more info. or suggestions
    on the models you've chosen....Good luck.

    Your best way forward is probably to look online and compile a sort of short list of watches you like then post them with pics here.

    For general browsing besides eBay you can try jomashop and authenticwatches they will have a lot of watches in your range and make for quick work in letting us know what you like. The Omega Aqua Terra might be just what you are looking for reference number 231.13.42.21.02.002.

    Omega, Ball, Breitling, Sinn, Longines, Eterna, Tudor, IWC, etc, the list is very long for choices given your budget.

    If you see some you like, use the search forum on this site to find older posts for reviews/feedback on any watch that might be of interest to you.
