Looking for a watch recommendation for my friend. This would be his first "nice" watch. He usually wears a suit to work, so he wants something that's sort of dressy/conservative, but still on a metal bracelet (he hates leather bands). His budget is $5000 or under, but if something fits his criteria that comes in way under that budget, he'll still consider it.
He doesn't want to swap bracelets either, so should come with metal bracelet from factory. Prefers white/silver dial, no chronographs. Something on the lighter/thinner comfortable wearing side. And ideally enough water resistance to swim with it once in a while (although this is not a must).
Also strongly prefers brand new.
I immediately recommended an Omega Aqua Terra, but what are some other good suggestions?
