Listen, get a JLC Reverso Grande Date, GMT, or the new Automatique...

whoever tells you this is a "decent" watch is on crack. JLC makes some of the best watches in the world. Patek, Vacheron, Lange are certainly in a higher category, but with a handwound reverso you're talking about an inhouse, form movement (not common in tank style watches) with top quality finishing. In my opinion, there are few watches I'd want to own under 10k besides the Reverso.

I definitely agree with that. Here's what's on my wrist today



However, we're pushing towards the higher end of that range here...

Some of the less complicated Senators retail for under $5k.

If you're looking for one watch you can wear everywhere, you can't do any better than the Blancpain Aqua Lung:

Get it with the bracelet. Mine is currently in New Jersey being serviced and having the bracelet attached.

Would be to visit websites and retail stores and find a watch that speaks to you. There are literally thousands of watches to choose from, and tens of models from the brands already named.

Some brands not yet mentioned you can look at are IWC, Audemars Piguet, Girard Perregaux and Chopard L.U.C. I personally favour Lange, as mentioned you can get an 1815, though it's close to the upper end of your price range.

Most important is to find something that appeals to you.

If you're looking for a new watch with a vintage feel, that you can wear in both a casual and a dressy setting, the Omega Railmaster XXL is a great way to go. Here is a picture of mine. Cost: $2500.

My daily watch:



It's an early Bubbleback Explorer that I got in Japan of all places!

No offense, but it seems like you and your fiance have more money than sense. I mean it's clear that you are not even interested in watches, so why would you allow your fiance to buy you a gift with a range up to $9000. The appreciation for the craftsmanship, the understanding of the mechanics, and the history simply not there. I am not saying you can't do what you please with your money, after all it's your money, but I wouldn't go out and buy a vintage Ducati without at least reading a few books, magazines, or message boards about the bikes. I don't think you should go out and get an expensive watch, especially based entirely on the suggestions of others with no criteria or requirements of your own.
