Impoly : Have you consider the Blancpain flyback chronograph? To be honest, that watch completely caught me off guard. It's insanely nice in person and the finishing is top notch. Also looks great on a bracelet or strap. But right now, I'm really focus on saving up for a Lange 1. Also the watch is 40mm and not too thick unlike like most modern sports watch these day. Retail price is a bit over your budget. However, BP has a really terrible resell value. So you can pick maybe one up for around 6-8k. not my pic http://compare.ebay.com/like/160588471431?var=lv<yp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes&var=sbar&_lwgsi=y ^ More pictures with the strap.
