I want to get my husband a watch for Xmas. $3-6k budget. He currently has an old Tag and a Shinola that he loves (bc it’s made in the US). He’s a union-side labor attorney so Rolex is probably a bit flashy. Thinking about a Tudor. Suggestions?

Have you looked at Weiss at all, it’s quite a bit below your budget but also made in USA and I bet your husband would like it. Can’t go wrong with a BB58 or Speedmaster though if your looking to get something a bit nicer.

Personally I would mix it up and check out Nomos in this situation, probably not a popular opinion though. If he likes Shinola he will like the look of some of their watches. From a US made standpoint you could also check out Weiss as well...I think someone else mentioned this above.

I second Nomos. Very underrated outside of watch nerd circles

Black or blue dial Rolex Oyster Perpetual 41 (or 36 if he has smaller wrists): $5,900. Shouldn’t be to hard to find before Xmas, and it’s one of the least flashy Rolexes in the catalogue. It has very little polishing, so it won’t jump out as much as most of the others.

I actually absolutely love this, so understated and classic... but yeah the brand name scares me.

Grand Seiko or Omega Speedmaster

GS for more elegant/ dressy looking; omega for sport. Can’t go wrong with either

Your budget is the sweet spot for Omega. In addition to the Speedmaster Professional, and the Planet Ocean, I would add the Aqua Terra to that list as well.

We live in Chicago and this feels a little “summery” for an Xmas gift to me. He does have a July bday though so I’ll keep this in mind :)

If he wants American, take a look at RGM. IMO it’s the best made American watch company. You could also get him a vintage Tudor sub that were actually mainly Rolex, mine is my favorite watch and it even has a Rolex crown.

If perception matters, not sure I’d do a Tudor. Someone might see it from a distance and assume Rolex. Omega feels like a good choice to me.

Good point.

Tudor Black Bay or Omega Aqua Terra are my recommendations - both are awesome and within budget

like

Omega Speedmaster would be great, but also if he like the “made in America” thing, check out Timex American Documents series. They are fully made in America except the movement itself, and only cost about $500

Since he’s an attorney, I’m guessing he wants something he can wear with a suit or business casual. Probably something refined and classic but subdued. Also doesn’t scream attention to itself with respect to brand name either. I’d suggest an Omega Aqua Terra or a Speedmaster Moonwatch on the sportier side, or a JLC Reverso on the dressier side. A more affordable option would be a Nomos Tangente.

Look up the Omega Speedmaster moonwatch. The design is unchanged since the astronauts in the Apollo programme were issued them by Nasa. First watch on the moon.

Hi friends, happy Friday. My (aged) dad messed up trying to create treasurydirect account with typo on drivers license which they won’t let him fix and now they’re asking for a certified account authorization form (to prove he is who he says etc). It says notary cannot certify but sounds like banks/credit unions may be able to certify? Anyone experienced/have a suggestion where he can get this form certified? He only has an online bank account so no local bank where he has a relationship.
