Hi guys - first post, and I’m sure it is tiresome, but I will go for it anyway.
I’m getting a bonus, and I would like to buy my first automatic watches. I wear a suit Monday-Thursday, business casual on Friday and casual on weekends. I have a max budget of $10,000, and I would like to buy two watches
- A nice “Daily Driver” dress watch, preferably on a leather/alligator strap
- A sportier dive watch
I am looking for watches in the 40-41mm size
I have been at Rolex and Omega ADs and looked at other brands (Grand Seiko, etc) recently. I think I want the dressier watch to be the “nicer” watch, and I would like to spend more money on that. My ideas are something like a $5,000 dress watch and something like a $4,000 diver (Tudor Pelagos or Black Bay, Seamaster, etc). The problem is that I can’t find a dress watch in that $5,000 range that I like a lot and that will hold value. A lot of the dress watches I am seeing cost $12,000.
Any ideas? Thanks much
