    Looking to buy my first luxury watch under 10k within the month!!!

    not sure if this is the right forum but not sure where else to post this. I'm looking for a new watch under 10k. Looking to buy within the month and been looking for every type of watch possible. I want something that I can wear everyday and that has pretty good resale value (just in case I change my mind years down the road).

    So far my list consisted of:

    Seiko Spring Drive Marinemaster 600m (probably won't choose this as it is quite large but I do love the way it looks)
    Grand Seiko -SBGA031
    Rolex GMT Master II BLNR
    Tudor Pelagos
    Grand Seiko Snowflake SBGA011
    Omega Speedmaster Professional 3570.50
    Nomos Ahoi or Nomos Metro
    Zenith El Primero 410 (love the way this looks but a little over 10k)

    What are some other watches I should consider?

    Thanks in advance!

    For resale value Rolex will hold it value very well. I have the sub, actually was looking for other brands because I was not buying a watch for status. Once I saw and tried it on I went home with no watch to save some more cash. I just fell in love with it. Point being, buy what really makes you feel awesome and what you love. Good luck in your search.

    What watchtime said. This will be a milestone for you, it sounds like. Of these, the only one I'd probably NOT do, is the Pelagos with a blue dial...I'd go with the black dial, as more general. The Snowflake would be considerably lighter than most of the others...that would be a major factor for me. Others prefer the heft. Resale is less of a factor to me, just because I figure you'll lose a lot of value regardless.

    Rolex GMT or Sub. You can't go wrong with either. Both look good with a suit and jeans. Good luck.

    the Pelagos is a great choice, and you honestly really can't go wrong with any Rolex sport model, have you considered a Sub, Exp2, or Milgauss? Just some food for thought.

    if your willing to spend 10g's...grab the speedy pro and tudor pelagos...

    speedy pro is the most iconic of the bunch and a collector must have that will retain its value......the new pelagos is a fantastic piece....


    if your set on just one....grab the BLNR and call it a day.....

    Stay away from high end seikos at the moment, when you have been collecting a while and have experienced a variety of great swiss timepieces then you can think about buying one but in terms of resale value nothing compares to rolex and patek.
