Prematurely touted a Lange once before but hope this one won't get away. Have been looking for a year or so, they are like hens' teeth.

Yeah, I also like that one a lot. Not quite up to your guys levels, but my wife got me this for Christmas...  

Been after one of these for a while. Going in tomorrow to haggle. Wish me luck!

She's decided on the Chanel (which is what I figured).

So what watches (other than Rolex) do you like in the $5-7kUSD range. Looking at the SBGA031 and Nomos time zone one. I already have a Zenith chronograph and the Breitling so I'm having a hard time. The diver seems like the best to complete the collection and I do want a spring drive.

it's a Tudor/Rolex nerd thing with text colors on the dial, and the fact that you are unlikely to run into somebody else wearing one. :)

I am leaning towards work but I like complications. That Tudor is nice but why pay almost a grand more to change the side of crown?

if you mean "work" as in "dressier watch for work," and you want complications, this is a no-brainer, for me.  I personally wouldn't get a Master Calendar, as overtime I looked at the watch, I would be sad that it isn't the Perpetual.

As a GS owner i recommend one, but go fondle them in a store first if you have the chance, as they look pretty different IRL compared to the bad official photos.

It's not unusual for people to walk away with a completely different model after handling them.

I used to be more of a toolwatch guy and lusted for the 031, but ended up with one of their most conservative designs (SBGH001) and haven't regretted it, not even after covering it with scratches  ;)

No I mean wearing on weekends and not worrying. My Zenith El Primero Moonphase is dressy enough for me on the rare occasions I dress up.

 

That Tudor adjusting strap is pretty sweet.

 

Appreciate the suggestions!

 

 

Gotcha.  The Pelagos is a sweet, sweet watch.  The blue is gorgeous.

Panerai? Not my cup of tea but there's the naval connection.

I think you might be onto something.  I wouldn't mind having a 1950 3-Day.  This is an in-house movement, if it matters to you, Chris.  I might actually prefer it to the Pelagos, but I've owned Tudor, and have never owned Panerai.

By the way, Chris, how do you keep from pulling the antenna on your Emergency?  I'd have that sucker out, and thus I'd be heavily fined and/or arrested, the first time I wore it when having one too many drinks. :)

is it this one?

http://www.timelesswatchexchange.com/timelessluxwatches/reviews/grand-seiko-sbge005-spring-drive-review

looks nice, though i think i prefer the diver.

 

when it comes to GS GMT's i really like the styling of the various hi-beat and automatic variants, though i can understand the allure of spring drive ;)

The Hi-Beat GMT (especially the limited version in green) would be my choice, of any GS, I think.

Are the three watches you posted pictures of, Chris, the same case size?  If so, I'd go with the black dial and the black rotating bezel.  If those are larger than the white dial, plain bezel watch, then I might go for the white dialed GMT.  42mm is about as large as I like, even with my big wrist.  Let me also present a slight alternative, if you can find one at a discount: The SBGE015.

http://www.timelesswatchexchange.com/timelessluxwatches/reviews/grand-seiko-sbge005-spring-drive-review

I liked the limited edition you posted Reks but it's not available for a reasonable price that I can find and the SBGE001 that I posted is very similar and I can have it tomorrow for under $5k. I love the look of the illuminated numbers:

GS-SBGE001-10__79107.1319244442.600.600.

hmmm.....
