    Damn straight it's a good price. Makes me want a Chronomat instead of a Navitimer.

    Eterna Royal Kontiki



    IMO better design compared to the Stratos

    Tag Heuer Carerra with in-house 1887 movement looks sublime.

    No date and the bracelet is easy enough to fix.

    Chronograph - Check
    Automatic - Check
    Pilot/Aviator (even though you didn't ask for it) - Check
    Very Cool Bezel - Check
    Maximum Cool Factor - Check

    I have found that some people just like to hear themselves typing.

    You think I'm condescending...?? Do you even know what that means... ??

    Re: What do you think are the best new chronographs for $5000 or less other than the Speedmaster

    This thread's a few weeks old now, but since everyone's still contributing...

    1. Hanhart Pioneer with black dial, either the MkI monopusher (borrowed image) or MkII dual pusher. If a date function is essential, then look at the very similar Pioneer MonoControl and TwinControl. SS bracelet available.

    2. Longines Heritage 1973 (my image). No SS bracelet or rotating bezel, although I figure the cool panda dial, gorgeous sunburst cushion case and blued column wheel chronograph make up for it.

    3. Muhle Glashutte SAR Flieger Chronograph (my image). The SS bracelet is comfortable to wear and looks amazing. Very distinctive dial and pushers (which I love).

    All three watches are water resistant to 100m. As requested, the Hanhart and Muhle have cool rotating bezels. All of them have very distinctive looks.

    I already own the Longines and Muhle, and will acquire the Hanhart at some stage in the near future.

    This years Freelancer is a pretty good looking watch.
    Perhaps a touch big for some but is otherwise a very coherent execution of the style it's going for.

    Again, no bracelet, but that's easy to fix. No diver bezel but just go ahead and use the Chronograph function for that.

    Date - Check
    Automatic - Check
    A Super Cool Second Hand that records down to an 1/8th of a second - Check
    Gorgeous Good Looks - Check







    Now, two suggestions, that are below budget.
