Watch Crew: What to buy?


#1861

^ What he said. Submariners come in White Gold as well, which is deceiving. http://www.rolex.com/watches/submariner/m116619lb-0001.html

But yeah, my guess is that you were looking at precious metals not stainless steel


#1862

That it explains it guys.


#1863

Put a nato strap on one of my Oris


#1864

that looks cool!


#1865

I scooped this and another one a while back. Didn’t bother posting before.

My wife just bought me this watch… not sure I’m 100% sold on it. I’ve never worn a watch in my life to be honest.

What do you guys think?

How much better? Or would you take the money and get something else?

Just debating what to do.


#1870

take the money and get something else

Movado is more of a fashion statement than a high end mechanical piece.

Really, to make a long story short, the chrono that you are wearing is a battery operated quartz movement. The quartz movement is considered to be MUCH less desirable than a proper Swiss Automatic.

Looks like the MSRP is $2,500 on that watch. For that money, I’m sure you can find a nice Swiss Auto.

Thanks Tom.

Yea that’s not what she paid…I know that much. I think she got 50% off. She thought the same thing when i tried it on… didn’t seem to have that effect for the price.

Name some watches I can look at in the $1000-1600 price range. I’m lost when it comes to watches… I’d like a nice dress watch or a nice everyday watch.

I have an Oris and I wear it everywhere. Doesn’t matter if I’m going fishing or dressing up. To me, it’s just a solid go-to watch. If you fish through this thread, you’ll see a handful or Oris as well.


#1873

Love me my Oris.


#1874

i think if you were to take some time and read this thread this exact topic has been discussed many times over.

A near new Oris is your best bet under $2k. Omega just over that… and some Tags.


#1875

for about 1800-2k you can pick up a decent used speedmaster


#1876

and that’s a good idea…

i think you get a much better speedy with full kit in the $2,500 range though.


#1877

I haven’t read this thread in quite some time but I will.

I’ve actually been looking at the omega’s for a better part of a month now. I like the speedmaster.

Is it better to buy from a grey market dealer and loose manufacturers warranty while saving some cash?


#1878

i bought my Rolex from a guy that @Beck actually knew

everything went smooth and i saved roughly $4.5k off the retail purchase price (granted its a few years older)


#1879

buy this speedy: http://www.nyspeed.com/showthread.php?284265-Omega-Spedmaster-3220-50-Triple-Calendar-Automatic-Full-Kit-Extras


#1880

I’m not crazy about that watch. Also a little bit more than I want to spend right now.
