My 21st birthday is coming up and I'm looking for a really solid watch to last me a lifetime. I've been looking around for something I can wear with pretty much any outfit, including business clothing (not necessarily a full suit, but definitely a button down shirt and trousers). I consider a watch to be a useful networking tool so I would like something which is clearly not a 200£ (approx. 270 $) piece - looking for a conversation piece. My budget is around 4000 £. I think I would like a leather strap but of course my concern with this is if I get black or brown, the colors I can wear it with are limited. Here is a list of watches that have caught my interest thus far.
TAG HEUER CARRERA CALIBRE HEUER01 (leather or rubber strap) - I enjoy the skeleton structure on the Carrera model
Breitling CHRONOMAT COLT AUTOMATIC 44 STEEL - MARINER BLUE
Breitling NAVITIMER 1 AUTOMATIC 38 STEEL - BLUE
I apologize for the lack of links, I haven't reached the necessary post count yet. These names are the names listed on the TAG Heuer and Breitling websites though so they should come up with the first google search.
What are some other models you think I should look into? I would appreciate the expert help.
