    Please help me find a 10k watch

    Hello my brothers wife looking to buy him a watch for his 40th birthday. The budget is 8000-10000$.
    She turned to me for advice and as my current collection consists of mainly sub 1000 watches this is a little out of my scope so i turn to my favorite forum for help.
    The watch should be modern or modern classic not very dressy chrono is ok, no gold. size 39-42mm

    Not sure exactly what you're looking for, but you said chrono and not too dressy.

    If preowned is not a problem, then a Rolex Daytona might be a good option. There are some available on Bob's watches. Pre Owned Men's Rolex Daytona watches at Bob's Watches

    If you're looking for something fancier, why not a Jaeger Lecoultre?

    Lucky guy!

    At $10K your options are virtually endless, and unless your brother only likes Patek Phillipe Tourbillions, you'll definintley be able to find something he loves.

    If your looking for more of a sporty watch, the Glashutte Origonal Sport Evolution is a great one; theyre about $8K new...

    Another classic is the Rolex Deep Sea Dweller, which is a great sport-dress hybrid, that can take a beating in every day life, then look great in a suit. Around $10K new.

    Another Rollie, even though its not my favorite brand; the 42mm Rolex Explorer II, which is available in Black, and White dials, and in a cheaper 40mm version. The 42mm new goes for about $8K

    A great watch that I'd say is a sporty dress watch is the IWC Portuguese line, which has many different models from around $6K to around $20K, here's the model that my Dad owns, and loves.

    This is a great Panerai, that at 40mm, is smaller than the average 44mm Panerai, but still is stunning. The PAM 298, Retails below budget at $7,100

    Another IWC, this time a very sporty pilot, which can be had for around $9K-$10K if you look around... It might be too big, and on the back it says "Top Gun" which is kinda cheesy, but I think its a pretty good looking watch. The IWC Pilot's Double Chronograph "Top Gun"

    How about a Rolex Submariner?

    A new one will set you back about $8,900.

    Shop around, and find a style that suits him. Many other good recommendations in this thread as well, the Rolex Explorer II was mentioned earlier.
