So it is with the unfortunate situation that I have come into some money (death of grandmother) and I have been left a fairly decent amount of money and am looking to spend up to £2000.00 of this on a watch to remember her by. I have recently purchased the Omega Seamaster PO GMT which is great, I love it, but I would like to alternate outside of this and my sub £100 quartz watch I wear to work with something a little less expensive but still with a good movement. Feels like I go from extreme to extreme....
I have a basic grasp of watches, functions, brands etc. however the one thing that I am finding very hard to learn is the movements, now I understand that for my price range I am looking for an ETA rather than COSC which is fine, I have no problem with this however I would be wanting a mid to high grade ETA movement rather than an entry level.
I have had my eye on some diver watches, I like the design of the Omega Seamaster 300m, Planet Ocean and also the Longines Hydroconquest. I would like a watch that isnt paticularly fat on the wrists so a fairly thin watch (within reason of course) would be a plus but not a deal breaker.
Omega's are out of my price range unfortunately and Longines Hydroconquest 41mm I am struggling to keep on top of which movement is in which one as I understand there was a specific model of Hydoconquest with an elabore movement but whether the AD's near to me have tghis specific model in stock it may be hard for me to find and I dont really wish to wait around for an unknown amount of time whilst they order it in.
Essentially I would like a watch with a reliable movement that is of diver style under the £2000.00 mark.
I do hope that my requirements are not too specific and thanks to all relevant answers!
