    Question Help with selecting new watch

    Coming into some funds so I'm looking to buy watch in $25 k to $ 30k range. I'm leaning towards Rolex Daytona Everose. I definitely want yellow or rose gold. Any suggestions in this price range?

    Thanks

    The new rose gold Daytona with the black ceramic bezel is one sweet watch. I tried on the brown dial version, but the white dial is also stunning.

    Of course with that price range you have a lot of options.

    Another rose gold chrono that I really like is the Breguet Type XXI with chocolate strap and bezel.

    I also love the JLC Master Chrono in gold. Very classy, and under $20k.

    I'd go for a quartz and take the car that comes with it.

    I'd look into Lange, Breguet, Vacheron, JLC, Grand Seiko...Rolex is a great brand, but their premium for gold is insane and, speaking frankly, Rolex is not prepared to go head to head with Lange.

    That Lange 1 might be the single best choice though.

    I guess it depends on the look he's going for...the Lange is def. highest quality but looks too feminine compared to the Daytona imho

    Are you looking more sport, more dress or doesn't matter?

    As I am required to by my Seiko union membership, here are some also gold Seikos for about that much money:





    You KNOW it's good because it says special right on the dial.

    IWC Port. Perpetual Calander

    I agree with the above comment that at such a high price point, Rolex loses against almost any other option. IMO Daytona just isn't that great.
