    $20K is a lot of money. If this is an addition to an existing collection - HH may make sense (although $20K may be tough for true high-end stuff)
    But, if this is your only watch(es) and will represent a new collection - few pieces make sense. One could get few very respectable pieces at that price point. FOr example this treo will cover a diver, Chrono\sporty and a dress watch categories and can be head for $20K:
    1 Rolex Sub, 1 Omega Speedy or Zenith El Primero, 1 JLC Reverso

    I'd buy what I currently have and spend the balance on something useful.
    Current rotation (alphabetical order):
    Fortis: B-42 Marinemaster
    Glycine: Airman SST Chrono
    Hamilton: Intra-matic, X-Wind
    Oris: Artelier Small Second Pointer Date, TT1 Small Seconds 1000m Diver

    $20k that had to be spent on watches? Rolex Explorer 2 Polar. Speedmaster Professional, Grand Seiko SBGA003 and save the rest for service down the road + a cheeseburger

    and the rest of the money would be spent going to Tokyo, Glashutte and Schaffhausen to collect them personally from the factory.

    You'll be fishing in the shallow end of the HH pool with 20K I'm afraid....20 grand will get you 3 awesome watches though and much more variety.
