Speedmaster professional should be in that range

Lots of choices there, depends how big your wrist is and what type of watch you want Omega speedy. Tudor black bay 36. Tudor black bay 58. Tudor GMT. Nomos (various). Omega aqua terra. Grand Seiko. Some IWCs in that range.

I’m genuinely proud of myself for not purchasing one yet. Tudor absolutely nailed it with that watch, A2 - great choice

You can get vintage ones in that range

I’m a big fan of the classic Speedmaster as said above, but also really like the dressy ceramic Seamaster 300 (no wave model)... plus, both can be had for pretty decent prices

My daily driver is a 300m seamaster professional. Was like 4K new I think, so not terribly priced and not too loud.

To my startup founders and enthusiasts, I recently had a pitch where I was offered $50k with a clause for an app — the clause is that I have to build an MVP first.

How should I approach building an MVP in this situation, is a partnership the best way?

Is anyone getting fatigued from wedding dress shopping? I think I'm just getting mad that all these dresses are over $1000 and strapless, backless, or have some insane v neck where I can't wear a normal bra. I don't want to flash my grandma and I just want sleeves. I feel like this is such a racket to squeeze ladies for every dollar and this isn't as fun as I thought it would be. I packed on some pandemic pounds so that also hasn't made me feel great about myself.

Ok. So I have a Speedmaster Mk ii that I LOVE, but I noticed last week that the chrono hand is stuck at about a half second off zero. It’s a bit outside of warranty, and Omega said I’d need to send it in and wait 8-10 weeks just to receive an estimate for a cost and time to fix it. I’ve only worn it maybe 30 times since buying it. I’m considering:
1. Bite the bullet and send it to Omega.
2. Ask a local luxury watch repair shop to do it.
3. Do nothing since it works fine otherwise.
Thoughts?

I like this watch on Christopher Ward, I have a wrist size of 15.4 cms. Apparently, they have the mesh bracelet starting from 19.0cms nothing below that. I called them up, she suggested I go for the leather strap which I’m not a fan of. The way the bracelet is designed I can’t even resize it. Is there a solution to this?
