  1. My brother is looking for a nice watch, with a budget around $3,000. Any recommendations? His tastes lean more clean and modern vs. the diving watches.

    Thanks in advance!!
     
  2. Nomos without a doubt, it was recommended as the #1 watch brand under 10 000$ by some of the best watchmakers in the industry.

    A quartz/manual wind Grand Seiko might also be a good choice but they might bit a bit over your budget.

    If you are interested in a slighty used watch, you should look into the Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso!
     
  3. We love Bell & Ross's vintage line.
     
  4. I love Maurice Lacroix in this price range. They make very sleek designs with their own character, have their own mechanisms and give you choice from a variety of price tags, starting with simple elegant quartz watches to high-end automatics winning Red Dot design awards every year, etc.
    This winter we bought my DH a very nice watch piece from ML, we both just love it.
     
  5. Thank you everyone!!


    Do you have any reputable websites or stores that you recommend that are a bit below retail?
     
  6. ML are sold by authorized distributors and they all have the same prices according to the official catalogue. There might be some other stores, but I don't think it's a good idea when it comes to buying a watch.
     
  7. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks for everyone's help so far.
     
  8. Tag Heuer is seen as a "lesser" brand by many watch enthusiasts, but the TH Carerra have some nice, clean models
     
  9. I like Bell & Ross at that price point. Clean and masculine. He should also check out the a Timezone.com forum. Lots of great recommendations for other non-diver models.
