    Watch with Date Magnifier

    I'm looking for a nice watch that has a date magnifier.
    Thinking of spending up to $4000. Not really thinking about buying used rolex.
    Any suggestions?

    Re: Watch with Date Magnifier

    There are a couple different color variations of the Tudor Heritage Chronograph (Black, Grey, Blue)... and something done by a long time TRF member was to have the local AD put a cyclops on his chronograph. The modern day version has no cyclops but the vintage version (which looks remarkably similar to the modern-day version) did. I think the "upgrade" cost is minimal (<$100-$200) and should keep you within you price range. This idea has tempted me a few times.

    Is this because you don't like buying used or because you don't like Rolex designs?

    If it's Rolex you have an issue with and you're ok with going used, Panerai has many models with a date magnifier. For example, you can find a PAM104 within your budget of $4K.

    That being said I think you should spend some more time looking around for specific complications/styles that you want. Saying you are willing to spend 4k on a watch and your only stipulation is a cyclops is like saying I have 20k to spend on a car and my only stipulation is it comes with a cup holder.

    Tag Heuer has an Aquaracer with a cyclops. Search around their site or Google and you should find it

    Are you looking for a date magnifier in particular or simply looking for a more prominent date display. There are may watches in your budget that has big date complication. Such as the Eterna Vaughan Big Date

    sea0bass is right -- there are choices that may not require the magnifier. Are there any other criteria other than price, non-Rolex and magnifier?
