About to go on a little buying spree. I am hoping to get good pre-owned examples of these for 5k; thinking this is a good, versatile start to a collection. Most of these I have wanted for years.

If I had to choose one of those three, I'd definitely go for the Longines. Great piece. Second would be the Omega, and third the Rolex.

Would you be looking to keep onto these watches or probably look to sell them latter on? The DateJust(/Air King/Sub) and Speedmaster, along with a (proper) dress watch and possibly a beater-watch, would be watches that someone should keep hold off rather then change (in my opinion).

I prefer the Air King over a DateJust because of the 'cleaner' look, the latter has more demand over the former which leads to the Air King holding its value less. In the 2nd hand market, you can get a better price for the Air King; however, if you will be looking to change the watch latter on, get a DateJust.

I can see myself selling down the road as funds/interest grow, so that is definitely playing a part.

Air King is 34mm correct? DJ is already small enough on my wrist so I don't want to go smaller.

DJ can be put on a leather strap and become a proper dress watch easily. DJ for dressier occasions, Longines for business casual, Speedmaster casual. If I were to add a 'true' dress watch it would probably be a vintage Constellation.

Speedmaster and Datejust are extremely easy to find used- the Longines, not so much. Anyone have good leads on sites that seem to have a decently consistent Longines inventory? I currently peruse TimeZone/Rolex Forums/WatchUSeek.

Just get the Omega and a proper dress watch.

I think you may have to go with grey market for the Longines. No one in their right mind would sell this watch - it's a keeper wink.gif

36mm (it may be available in 34mm), I do prefer small watches.

Personally I would keep the DateJust on a bracelet and add a proper dress watch when you can.

The Omega would be my choice.
post #12584 of 35013

The Longines is an exceptionally handsome watch. They have done a good job of differentiating themselves from other brands at that price range.

post #12585 of 35013
Been considering a new watch for a long time, and a good candidate would be this IWC ref 3255

How much would you say this would cost used but in good condition? - and would you think this would look good with a brown strap?

Also, if anyone owns this watch or a very similar feel free to post a picture of you wearing it!!
