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:

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.
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.
Thanks in advance,
