    First watch for 16 yo

    Hello everyone. First I would like to thank your community which has affected on my watch taste and helped me in lot of questions! My brother is 16 and he's into watches lately. I wanted to buy a watch for him (max 5k). It will be his first watch and he likes Breitling style watches. What would you recommend except G-shock,Rolex and Omega?

    $5000 is a solid budget you can get plenty of lovely pieces like a Grand Seiko, D Dornblueth & Sohn, Explorer I etc

    If he likes the Breitling sort of look maybe try a Speedy Pro or maybe a Stowa Fleiger.

    The Speedmaster Professional (with either either hesalite or sapphire) is a can't go wrong choice.

    If he likes Breitling get him a Brietling. There is nothing wrong with Breitling. The case is a little too polished for my taste but they are fine watches. I would suggest a less "shiny" Breitling for a 16yo.

    Holy schnikees!! 5K? You're the greatest brother ever. If he likes Breitling, why not go for a Breitling? You can get a really nice one for under 5K.
