Tag Heuer Calibre S is what I wear and absolutely love it. It goes with damn near anything, looks classy but not gaudy, and I get a lot of complements on it.

Two suggestions.

1) Seiko. Buy yourself a "higher end" Seiko like a Grand Seiko, or even simply a Seiko 5. If you need to class it up or you want to make it look like you spent more money, buy yourself a gator watch band for ~ $200-250. For that money, you could get yourself a couple and have a nice rotation [I am a big fan. I have a Seiko 5 and a Seiko Diver both on NATO Straps]. Can be had for dirt cheap.

2) Stowa Marine!! How has no one recommended this yet. Flashy enough for a young guy yet classy enough to keep forever. You can get the base model with a polished case and alligator band for under $1000 shipped. This is really what I'd suggest. I'm 23 going on 24 and am patiently waiting to receive mine with a nice Sirtoli gator strap The end of April cant come soon enough

If I were you I would start the job first, and get a good look around at the kinds of watches and clothing people are wearing. Most of the watches in this thread (in my opinion) run the risk of looking pretty flashy in a management consulting setting both within the firm and definitely with clients.

Clients don't want to feel like you're being overpaid, so a bling watch might not be a great idea if you're not a partner.

+1. Simple, understated. A recent preowned Datejust is available in two-tone gold/stainless, or in stainless in your price range - if you are patient, you may even get a better deal. And it will retain its value better than a new watch.

If you don't find one on watchuseek, look in the rolexforums.com for sale section. I have recently bought two Rolexes on rolexforums.com:

Datejust in stainless for $2500
Submariner Date in stainless for $3600

I guess you're right. I wanted to start doing some research and looking at some options so I can speed up my decision process. I think I will still go for a mildly flashy watch, since the rest of my outfit is conservative: Black Park Avenues, AE basic dress belt, MT shirts, and average suits (but well tailored of course). Thank you everyone for your kind words of wisdom.

Go for the pre-owned Rolex sub

These guys usually have them and they are easy to work with. http://www.pduggan.com/

Longines Master Collection II....I will probably be buying one of those in the next year. Also well within your budget.

$2000+

Rolex Air King. Permanently stylish, and relatively inexpensive as Rollies go. Under 5k typically.

Rolex Cellini would be perfect for you. Dressy but not boring, nor pretentious.

I will also use it for my nights out, which often include pairing jeans with a sport coat.

I was looking at a couple of options from Cartier and Bvlgari. I really like the Bvlgari, except I hate the name of the brand on the bezel area. I hope you share your knowledge with me.

Try not to buy fashion watches. My advice will be to go for a Anonimo pre-owned or from the grey market.

yeah it's possible. I bought my Speedmaster when I was 20. I start saving for it when I was 18. I spend around $1,700. I bought the 3572, basically a Speedy pro with a front hesalite and sapphire back (discontinued for awhile) It's good to see it went up in value somewhat. Speedmaster 3572 I been watching most of the Speedmaster auctions lately. Mainly the 3570, and I noticed most of them are going for 2kish now (it was $1,600ish when I was shopping around a year and half ago.)
