whats a classy watch with a 13k USD budget? Will wear mostly with suits, was looking at IWC Portuguese and some Panerai but realized i want something thats a "less common" brand and more unique? anything comes to mind?
JLC Polaris Reissue 1968 (the one without the dauphine hands)
JLC Deep Sea Reissue 2011 European Version
I think these two have a chance to appreciate over time. Especially the Polaris 68
A vintage VC or AP rotor automatic
Benrus Type 1 Dive
Heuer Bundeswehr chrono
So, just for fun, thought I would post my list for my next watch purchase. Still on the horizon... but I am working on it . Selling off a bunch of my wardrobe, so I figured I would start saving!
Looking for something that is dressy [all I have now is a Damasko DC56 and Seiko Blue Sumo, so those are my go-to tool watches], but ideally something that could be worn with business casual. And here are the contenders--please feel free to offer suggestions:
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Master Ultra Thin [not decided on size].
I would get this with the silver dial, however. Although I love the MUT, a bit worried about it being worn in anything less than a suit or tie, which is a bit discouraging.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Reserve de Marche.
Probably number one on the list right now.
Grand Seiko SBGA011—“Snowflake” Spring Drive.
Maybe number two on the list... so many decisions!
Dornblueth & Sohn 99.1.
There is a lot to like about Dornblueth, so much character, and I love the Bauhaus style.
