Okay so some deals fell through, but if this group had the opportunity to get a brand-new NTTD Seamaster in the 6-6500 range or a 20+ year old Explorer II polar in the 7500 range, what would you all do? Have a Speedmaster Hesalite, a GO Senator, a SMP 300 grey/blue, and an Alpinist. Looking for another sports watch and I would prefer to have a GMT function as the next watch. The pitch for the NTTD is that it is being discontinued (as I have heard from 2 different ADs) and I like the Bond reference, which I know others don't. Pitch for Explorer II is it is a GMT and would be my first Rolex.

Third option is to hold put and see if the market crashes more in the spring.

So this is why I’m still trying to fill my four slot. This tweed jacket with oxford shirt combination would look much better with a watch that has a leather strap rather than one with a metal bracelet. I realize that this look is fine and if someone were not looking for this many watchs, the oyster with a tweed would work. I just think that a watch that looks good with a leather strap would be a better option here.

How about a 1601 on a textured dark brown or burgundy leather and no rubber companion?

I wish there was some way to sort the posts in this thread by upvotes to find some inspo.
Looking for a dress watch with a full yellow gold case and bracelet. Something in the 6-15k range.

Currently have an Omega Speedmaster (brown leather) and an Omega Seamaster DeVille.

Pre-owned OK? Rolex Day-Date Oysterquartz. Such a cool watch.

Full gold dress watch for that price....hmmm, probably a vintage Rolex Daydate from the 70s-80s (1803-18038)? Or perhaps a vintage Cartier Santos from the same period...?
