post #29611 of 39119

If you had £5k to spend ($8300) and were 27, looking for a serious watch; what would it be? Have a steel tag already and rolex's just too common or too expensive for the uncommon ones. Slim wrists, so looking for something more leather strap and smaller face orientated. First thought was Lecoultre Master Moonphase ultra thin because you dont see too many of them about. 

 

Only looking for new really so no "you could pick up a patek on ebay for £5k on a good day" comments please.

Some great stuff lately. Glad to see you back Derek, always enjoy you around these parts.

Thought I would share this post that I saw over at TPP:

I have always been a bit of a geophysic nerd, and I thought this was a pretty outstanding post. I hope that y'all enjoy it as much as I did!

And there's me thinking you only wore her underwear.

 

Loving the new watch.  And the old one.  :)

this sums up my feelings on teh matter.

The JLC MUT Moon is a good choice.  There are a few owners here in TWAT.

Although I am doubtless biased, I would second the MUT Moon choice in a heartbeat. I am a 25 year old guy, and I just do not think you can do any better at that price point. It also flies under the radar, which I have found helpful dealing with employers and clients.

No problem broseph.

Nicolas over on TPP has some great articles. And the Geophysics / Jaeger Chronometers are some truly fascinating watches. The geophysic might have one of the greatest movements of all time. In fact, it is what Dufour based his simplicity upon.

Am very much appreciating this thread, guys! I've been thinking of investing in my first serious watch for quite a while now, and am particularly interested in some of the older Rolex models. I've been looking around online quite a bit lately, and found some nice Rolex models here http://www.chrono24.co.nz/rolex/index.htm

Has anyone ever bought watches on websites like this? What should I be watching out for when shopping for watches online?

Thought I heard someone say "Rolex."

Check out Nomos - great inhouse movements, and rather different than a lot of other watches.
