    Need help identifying 3 watches

    Was asked by a young coworker for some advice on Swiss watches. Told him there are a bunch of styles and types of watches but there are three movements that have some serious significance and if you find watches with these movements it's a good start. These are the:

    2824-2
    Valjoux 7750
    251.233 (the COSC cert. 10 spy Quartz)

    So I'm looking for three new watches with these movements, and he wants to bring it in for the lowest cost. No auctions or used pieces.

    He did his research and said he can bring it in for under 1500 USD. I didn't ask the brands or where he found them.

    So I'm looking for the expertise of you guys to name me three watches with a total price that can get the job done.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "bring it in."

    Do you mean "to purchase?"

    Also, does he want to "bring in" (purchase?) all three for $1500, or just one watch for that amount?

    Clarification please!

    Yep he said he found all three watches and the total was less then 1500$. He didn't tell me what he found, both of us are traveling. I said let me get some options to compare what he found before he buys.

    So apparently it's possible, just don't know how.

    The 7750 alone is gonna be at least $900 pre-owned inside a less than mint chrono.

    There's a couple of Steinhart chronographs with the Valjoux 7750 inside. I would have thought you could get a new Nav B-chrono for under $1000 if you shop around

    He texted me what he found, and he seems to have gone full out Invicta.

    Model 17194, 280$

    Model 9937 350$

    Model 10943 475$

    Grand total of a little over 1000 w/tax.

    Not sure if the 9937 is a 2824 or a SW200, but not even sure if there is enough difference for that to matter.

    I'm thinking of telling him to go for it. What do you guys think?
