Really? Which model did you have? I was looking at the newer PO chrono with their newer movement
SeaMaster Professional 300M Chronometer, 42mm (I think) Gold and stainless, blue face, gold bezel. Ditched it 5 or so years ago. My wifes Omega has performed flawlessly since we got it 14 years ago.

I dream of an IWC Portofino or Nomos, but they’re way out of my price range.

Fanciest I get is my Seiko SARB033:

Also since nobody has posted this website jomashop.com you can find some great deals on new watches. Especially for those of you into citizen bulova tissot movado and other “lower end” watches instead of paying big box retail. Your welcome.

You can also looking into a local estate jeweler. That is how I purchased my and my wife’s watch.

Depending on where you live but most bigger cities have a high end used watch store.

Hey guys. Ive been a watch guy for many years. Started out with invicta watches and worked my way up to more expensive watches. Right now my nicest watch is a Oris F1 chrono that i love.
Recently i got a new job and wanted to buy a new watch to celebrate. My budget is around 4k. (Pre owned)Looking at some omegas and breitlings. If anyone has any suggestions of watches to look at, please let me know.
Nice to see watch guys here. I started with a Speedmaster as a highschool gift to myself in 1969. Collected mostly Omega sport, Seamaster, Speedys, ProPlof, etc. Branched into others but my original '68 Speedmaster gets the most wear.

Well, it took me forever but i finally bought a watch. It came to two. One was the omega SMP chrono (older design with 7750 movement) or the Breitling skyracer chronograph.
I bought the breitling. It has the most beautiful grey dial ive ever seen and i had to have it. I still want a omega SMP but might buy a 3 hand version.

Pics, man!

The newest addition to my stable, a Tisell Bauhaus. Like me it’s made in Korea. (Being raised my a Japanese mom, there’s probably also some kind of comparison I could make to the Miyota 9015 inside the case).

My understanding is that Tisell is a one-man ship, and he regulates each one before shipping. Mine is less than -5 seconds over about a week, which is pretty outstanding.

Bought a few “gray market” items from Jomashop - would definitely recommend. A lot of their stuff is fairly priced for NIB accessories.

Highly recommend this route as well when looking at preowned luxury timepieces. Heck, even eBay can be a viable source as there are reputable companies selling stuff on there.
