    Great suggestion!

    Only apprehension is that I have an 18cm / 7.25 inch wrist and ALS typically look a bit on the small side proportionally.

    How about a Moser? The Pioneer dresses up or down pretty well.

    GO Senator or Sixties are also growing on me.

    I can certainly appreciate the VC overseas recommendation - kills two birds with one stone and is definitely a very nice piece. However, with your budget I would wholeheartedly recommend an 1815 up/down in either gold or rose gold on a brown strap. You will likely be able to find one of these on the preowned market right around $20k. The watch will work extremely well with lighter suits, khakis and a button down, or even jeans and a sweater. They are surprisingly versatile and the 38.5mm model should give you just enough heft for your 7.25 inch wrist. The Overseas will work better in a much more casual setting - no argument there - however, I think you may be in the above listed attire more often than not.

    Happy hunting - you cant go wrong either way!

    I have an FP Journe and I've learned that very few get to regular guys like me and the vast majority go to collectors. Get the FPJ.

    Journe is ultra high end watchmaking and I'd be proud to own one of his pieces, but you have a fine dress watch. Out of those in the poll - I'd get an AP RO and wear it like a boss or if you want sporty go ROC, or even sportier and much more durable - get a Ceramic Daytona, GMT, or Green Sub if you are looking in that range.

    You say you like flying under the radar. In that case, I say go for the FP Journe. The AP and VC are nice, and VC is definitely a lot less well known but they are still both quite flashy watches in the flesh. Also, APs are heavily advertised in all sorts of places now and everyone pretty much knows them. The best thing about having an FP Journe on your wrist is that only people who know and understand the world of fine watchmaking will know what you're wearing, and all others will be clueless.
