    Signature watch for about $5K

    Need a "sales" watch to impress potential clients. Budget is about $5-7K. I was thinking about a Tudor BlackBay but concerned that it may be perceived as a Rolex imitation. Already have a Briteling. What are your thoughts?

    I'd look at the Rolex OP 39mm in grey or blue

    If you want a non-Rolex, then the Omega Aquaterra is the best bet. It looks amazing in person and the markers catch light like nothing else

    The only luxo watch probably recognized by non-WIS potential clients is going to be a Rolex. Plenty of recent pre-owned ones within your budget; I'd go with either a Sub or DateJust, depending on how dressy you want it to be.

    They'll either think of you - if at all - as a winner or an @$$hole, depending.

    I highly doubt any of your clients will give two shits about the watch you wear.

    If you want something recognizable as an "expensive watch," I would go for a Rolex Datejust.

    Clients aren't actually going to notice your watch.

    This shows the pessimist in me, but if a sales person was trying to help me buy something and was wearing a Rolex, the first word that would pop into my head is 'commission'.

    I'd suggest getting something tasteful and not ostentatious. My pick would be something like a JLC reverso or a Cartier Tank, either way, something on leather.

    If your clients care at all about watches, buy something you like that matches your personality and manner of dress.

    If your clients (like most people) don't know anything, then it really doesn't matter, although almost everyone will recognize a Rolex.

    I'm a real estate agent - I don't think I've had many clients notice my watch. No one has ever mentioned it.

    I'd get an Omega AT. You would be getting the best of both worlds. A nice watch and one that doesn't stand out and shout "hey look at me" to your clients.
