    I seek a rectangular watch for $3-4k

    Buddy is looking for a watch for around $3-4k, rectangular, but with the watch face no wider than the band. He's about 6'1, but has skinny little wrists.

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    - Dan

    Or, an Omega JFK. Hmm, I checked the price - seems like it might be over your price limit even pre-owned.

    love the JLC

    usually when people mention square/tank watches, Cartier comes to mind,
    here's a couple of them

    Cartier Chronograph, Tank Solo, Cartier Reverso, all can be had for about 4k and under

    Other square watches ~

    1. Perrelet
    2. Baume Mercier
    3. Jean Richard
    4. Zenith
    5. Hamilton

    and this is just my opinion, if your friend is tall and skinny, I wouldnt wear a skinny watch (case width is the same as the bad)

    skinny on skinny doesnt really match well in that regard,

    When it comes to square or rectangle watches no one does it better than the Monaco!

    In fact there are two Grande Taille Reversos for sale on another popular watch forum's sales board right now. They're both a little bit over 4k. IMO, there's no better option in that price range.
    Omega Speedmaster Professional 3570.50
    Seiko Sumo SBDC003
    Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Ultra Thin Tribute to 1931
    Rolex GMT Master II BLNR
