Long time forum reader but first time poster here!
I'm 22 years old and I'm planning to get an Omega Seamaster Professional 2221.80.00 quartz version as a university graduation gift from my parents .
I'm a little scared though because it's going to be my first luxury watch and before I purchase it I want to be absolutely sure that I won't find a watch afterwards that I would have liked more. That's why I need your help to recommend me alternatives to the above SMP based on the criteria below:
A) Budget is strictly up to $2000.
B) I'm not planning to get a preowned watch (for those ready to suggest a used PO or a Speedy)
C) There is no option to do extra saving myself and buy the <enter random high end $3000 watch name here>
I've also considered the Aquaracer 500m quartz version and I would like your opinion if it would be a better choice too. Keep in mind that I'm not bothered about the movements. An automatic is surely the better choice but my priorities are the looks, prestige, heritage and the strong brand name. Although I'm a sailing enthusiast I'm not commited to diving watches only, pilot suggestions are also welcome. I would like to thank you in advance for your suggestions .
