I want to buy my first 'high end' (luxury) watch. I don't have a huge budget but it doesn't have to be expensive but good quality and the right look.
I'm willing to spend up to £3000 if needed. Fortunately the styles I like tend to be cheaper. I think I've worked out I want a Bauhaus style watch and it has to be an automatic with smooth moving second hand and the date.
I did like the Mondaine Automatic but I think they're got a standard ETA movement? but then it is only £400.
I love the look of the Junghans Max Bill range (not the chronoscope) I could get one of these for abour £600. What is the movement on these watches?
I've come across the Nomos Glashutte Tangomet, I think this is about £2000 and has a good in-house build automatic but I've not heard anything further? comments?
Slightly away from this style I was keen on a Bell & Ross, particularly the limited edition red one, this watch is £3000 and if I'm not mistaken is a 'fashion' watch with a rubbish movement? I could always get a less limited version for about £1800?
I think my perfect watch is the IWC Portuguese but I couldn't justify spending £5000 on it. I'd feel guilty enough with £3000.
Any input on a good automatic, with a great movement, and date would be greatly appreciated.
