Men's watch at the $5K mark?

post #1 of 163
Thread Starter 

I have a nice all stainless Movado that's held up well..no bling bling..and a workhorse Seiko I've worn for years. I'd like to take the plunge on a "nice" watch with clean lines and professional appearance. I'm not a fan of gold or diamonds on watches. I saw some nice Breitling's at that price point. What about Dornblueth?

Dornbleuth is nice but you haven't given any criteria. Dress watch, sports watch, maybe a sub. What size of watch do you like? Does it have to be new? Do you like chronos or simpler dials?

There are also a number of threads on this topic, I would encourage you to search. Also check out the Watch Porn thread which has a lot of <$5k watches.

that is a very good start. Bookmark the styles you think fit best and if the price point is off, you can post here to similar style recs.

I would highly recommend pointing your browser of choice to forums.watchuseek.com

 

They love them some watches.

Hard to throw out ideas if we don't know what direction you want to go. For some nice dress watches check out Zenith. They're a great brand and use in house movements, which is pretty unheard of at that price point.

Try brands like Rolex for example. Famous high end watch brand you dig!

I'm a big fan of Omega. That's where I'd start looking.

You can get a few models of Breitling watches at that price point.

anyone knows how much does a IWC topgun watch retails for?

Many watches fits your definition, imo it is easier to advise if you post a picture of the watch you like, even if it is expensive. Someone like Panerai, another prefers Rolex DD.

Those IWC above are nice, love them.
My contribution, just to show the price point.

Retail is of course out if your budget, but everywhere out of AD doors it sells for 5K plus-minus
