    Need recommendation for a new addition - simple and pretty

    I'm looking to add to my budding collection. I'm a big fan of simple and elegant mechanical watches....

    I currently have:
    2006 two-tone rolex submariner
    late model Ball Trainmaster Cleveland Express (silver face/blue numbers)
    Ball Trainmaster Cleveland Express NM1058D-LCJ-SL | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
    late model Longines Masters Moonphase

    If you're familiar with these watches, I think you'll agree that they all have a timeless classical design.

    In that same vein, what do you recommend that's under 2500 (pre-owned)or so? I'm heavily leaning towards the Omega Planet Ocean. I love the distinctive, bold orange.

    thanks for your input.

    PO would be a great choice, though I wouldn't describe it as "simple and elegant." What about an AT?





    You may need to stretch your budget by a few hundred dollars to find a used one, but well worth the money and effort!

    If you're really stretched, go for Braun. The styling is simple, beautiful and timeless!
