    Beautiful watch, that is on my list of things to get. I want to get one from 72 if possible, since that was my birth year. Not easy to find ones that look that nice.

    God, I love the Compressors of yesteryears. The more recent ones are an abomination!

    Or maybe because they genuinely like the watch in question? [​IMG]

    Fair enough but what about the fact a dive watch only shows elapsed time, not depth? I wear a computer on my wrist and carry a back up in my dry suit pocket. Anyhow, will stop posting off topic. Post your dive watches!
    Who says I'm not wearing a depth gauge and compass too? [​IMG] Yeah, surely it's a bit retro-romantic, but let's start with this; [​IMG] And let's be honest - the Submariner doesn't see any real action (it's mostly for places where the wettest thing around is a dry Martini? as the ad in my study says....), and the Spirotechnique depth gauge is just sitting around my desk, reminding me that there are more raptures waiting... /M

    Everyone, I was wondering if you can help me out? I'm trying to make a watch purchase (lets say $2000-4000, for the right watch $5000). I'm a girl, but I don't like the majority of women's watches (because they're too bling'd out, quartz movement, too 'cute', etc.) so I'm open to looking at men's watches too. Also I'm under 30 and working in a corporate setting - so I'd like a watch I can wear for that, or pretty much anywhere. Criteria: Automatic Preferably in-house movement leather strap or steel is fine I like a bigger watch... so around 34mm and up Silver preferably over gold, and generally not a fan of two-tone Preferably something not too common (I know Rolex is decent, but I guess it seems like too obvious of a choice...) Swiss or German Visible back of the watch would be nice (sorry if I don't know the proper term) but not necessary So far I've been most interested in IWC and Glashutte Original (though the latter, I haven't been able to find anything for less than $5000 so far). I was wondering if anyone has any brands to suggest, and also for the two I've mentioned - are there specific models I should look at. I've also looked into JLC but not as extensively as the other two, so I'm a bit new to what's available w/ them. One other one I looked at is Frederique Constant - supposedly an up-and-comer, but I'm a bit wary of them not having fully establish themselves yet. I also looked at Panerai - but I think it's too casual for my first watch... and also likely above my budget. I've also tried to avoid brands where I've read and been told are generally 'overpriced' for what they are offering (e.g., Longines, Tag, etc.) based on my price points, though I am open to suggestions. Lastly, I'm heading to HK and maybe other parts of Asia soon - I was wondering if it's better to buy over there than in North America? Thanks everyone!
