    I'm looking for my First Ever Under 5000$ watch. I'm into both new, used, Vintage. I Prefer Dress watch since Elegant dress watch seem to suit my style the most.

    I have eyes on the Montblanc because of it beautiful design with an affordable price. And also open a topic here : https://forums.watchuseek.com/f2/how...4784561-6.html

    Now I have 5 Option: 3 Montblanc, 1 Frederique Constant, 1 Vintage Audermar Piguet for this under 5000$ price Range. Feel free to help me add more options in my list

    1/Montblanc Moonphase Vasco ==> Why?: I love the moonphase and the JLC design, Why Not?: No other complications

    The Montblanc moon phase is lovely, having owned watches from the heritage line the overall value is quite good on baby JLC design and execution. That’s my pick. The FC does nothing for me and vintage AP in this category is not my thing

    But isn’t the JLC MUTM within punching range with a decent discount or within range pee owned?

    I voted #1. But, I agree with @jilgiljongiljing (what an infuriating forum name to type!); track down a gently used JLC MUT moon.

    #5 just because it is an AP and no, I don’t think Mont Blanc is up there among the big horological Brands. Sorry....

    #1 is stunning in the metal. I really like that watch.

    #5 Is best and most collectible if you feel comfortable with the size.
