Not wild about the Omega's for the office. Nice watches though.

I believe there's probably a Rolex that meets most of your criteria but the price would probably go north of 6k. Maybe something by IWC. Keep in mind that you can buy a lot of watch for half of the budget you describe. It probably wouldn't be pink gold, however.
Yeah, it's a wish list, but I'm willing to be flexible. I'll trade yellow gold for the pink gold. I'll punt on the crocodile band as long as I switch out the band I'm stuck with. And I'm sure not wed to $6k. If I can get that watch for less, then it's all good.
Now, God-help-me for offering this thought given how I gather Baume & Mercier are felt about around here, but I quite like this watch
from an aesthetic point of view
