    Need help after countless months of searching and researching watches

    I just recently registered to your forum and I want to say thank you for all the useful information. I have been researching the buying of my first luxury watch and I have been brought back to these forums more than enough times to warranty the register and admission to the community.

    Task at hand:

    There is a watch above all watches that I loved from the moment I saw it. It is a Milus Tirion TriRetro TIRM600 with red 18k gold limited edition. The first frustrating thing is that I have not been able to get a price on this particular watch. I have been to the Milus site and bounced everywhere for the last 3 months or so. Here is a link to this beautiful piece:

    Master Tirion TriRetro TIRM600 | www.milus.com

    Budget:

    I am trying to find a watch of this caliber for about $7k. I like the brown strap, gold case and especially the blue dial hands and skeleton features. If you throw in the chime which really is just whipped cream and I am sold. However, I have a strange feeling that the reason I cannot find this watch is because it is $55k or something way above my budget.

    Help:
    Can someone give me a price for the above watch? Also, if this watch is way out of my league can I get some opinions based on what I liked on this watch on other brands? My researching has lead me to Maurice Lenriox, Armand, Baume and Mercier but from what I gather these brand are more in the Comfort Luxury class and may not be worth the $5k price for them. Lastly, another decent pick was the from Oris but this was way below my budget and I didn't want to sacrifice quality and brand presence.

    Here is a link to all the watches that I fancied:

    Oris Artelier Skeleton - 01 734 7670 4051-07 5 21 70FC - Oris Artelier - Oris - Purely mechanical Swiss watches.

    All in all, if I am going to spend $7k for a watch I want to make sure I am getting more bang for the buck.

    Opinions welcomed!

    Thanks in advance,

    -SG

    Instead of the Oris, checkout Epos.


    Oh, the Milus is 260K USD.

    Or save a couple of thousand and order one in Stainless steel!
    pOP, keep the Milus as your Grail watch, and get something else for your 7K.

    How about the amazing presentation box (safe) that the Jaeger-LeCoultre Hybris Mechanica Grand Sonnerie is delivered with. It comes with the Gyrotourbillon and the Reverso a Tryptique, for $2.5 millon.

    Nice skeletons are slim pickings in the $7k and less range. Maurice Lacroix, Chronoswiss and Perrelet are a few I'm aware of. Here is a pic of my Maurice Lacroix Skeleton
