    Whiteface w/bracelet suggestions please! ($1-2k new or pre-owned)

    Hi guys, *Budget updated!

    In the market for a ~42mm white face OR SILVER and suits a ss/bracelet.

    As per the title, budget is $1-2.5k and don’t mind if it’s pre-owned. I don’t buy buying grey market either.

    I really like Baume et Mercier 8692 .. however, unless I can find a pre-owned one in great condition – it is a little out of myprice range as I’d need to purchase a bracelet for it in the vicinity of ~$500 ontop of the watch being just out of the budget even in the grey market – I am keeping my eyes open though!

    Cheers for any suggestions!

    Maybe a little different approach, at least design-wise: Mühle Glashütte 29er Big. Its size and price fit your requirements. Much loved around the German watches forum here on WUS.

    Here's a picture:

    Here's a link to a thread by WUS member Sodiac, you can check out some real life pics there: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f8/join...te-616191.html


    EDIT:
    I remembered that Mühle offers many of their watches with bracelets. You should check out the Classical Timepieces category on their website, too, if the 29er is too sporty. Here's the link: Wristwatches | Mühle-Glashütte GmbH nautische Instrumente und Feinmechanik

    Here's actually a contender which IMO shares some design elements with the B&M you fancy: the Teutonia II.

    White dials don't seem nearly as common as silver. Forum member SSingh1975 had the hands on his Hamilton painted blue and it looks really sharp! 5


    [New Strap update] My Maestro....back from the dead (and modded by IWW) !!

    Longines also looks to have some similar watches that look similar to the BM.

    +1 to the Hamilton, Longines, & Oris. In that order. Can't do much better. Might try Tissot Le Locle line but the recs here are great.

    Thanks so much for the suggestions guys.
    I realised I should have meant SILVER FACE TOO!

    I actually like all of the suggestions in this thread! Particularly the Muhle, Hamilton and Longines.

    What's Muhle like as a company just quickly..? Never heard of them. I will be doing lots of researching though!

    This watch is a 21st present. It's going to be something I aim to hold for the rest of my life. I could get the budget stretched to 2.5k I was told last night. Possssibly allowing me to get the beloved Baume, but the bracelet is +500.

    ...Keep them coming if you can! :)

    This is a very lightly pre-owned watch with box and "wallet". I personally will honor the warranty for one year even though the factory warranty is ended. MSRP was around $2200, watch is solid 18k gold and stainless, fits a wrist 8 1/2 inches. Sapphire crystal, new battery, difficult to find even light scratches. Send me an email of you're interested. Michael
    ps: I have more pictures also.
