Really eyeing this as a graduation gift to myself. Any concerns with getting this Speedmaster from Chrono24 for ~$2,200?

I agree. Not a proper Seamaster, and a new one would go for around double that. I strongly suggest you go to an authorized dealer or Omega boutique near you and try them all on. Maybe it makes sense to extend your budget.

If it’s your first Omega, I strongly recommend getting one of the classic, most well-known designs - Speemdaster Moonwatch, Seamaster Diver 300m, Planet Ocean.

The $2-2.5K range is a difficult one - maybe a used Breitling Superocean is within reach (great watch all around) or a new TAG Heuer.

I meant Speedmaster. Oops

For that money I’d look at a Tag Heuer Formula 1, Nomos, Breitling or Sinn. A second hand Seamaster may be possible too.

That’s not a proper speed master 😂

Oh I didn’t know. Why’s that

Subdial layout, look at the speedmaster moonwatch as that is the iconic speedy

This model likely does not have a in-house caliber either

Thank you for the feedback everyone. I’m now eyeing this one. Any red flags for this model?

This watch has the chronograph module mounted on top of the base movement. Which makes service complicated…

3) Forget PM, go MBB or bust and then try to pivot into big tech strategy&ops

Peers don’t notice or comment on my Rolex. Clients always seem to notice and spin up conversations around it. 🤔

Anyone else getting a little Rolex fatigue? Every year seems to be small incremental changes to watches that I’ll never be able to get due to their distribution model. Don’t get me wrong, I’d still very much love to get a classic model at some point, but it’s just been getting tiring knowing every year it’s small changes to the same watches and I won’t be able to get them anyways. And when they do push the envelope (OPs 2 years ago), they get discontinued 2 years later and pump prices up…

OH at dinner where people were comparing watch brands:

If watches were people, a Patek is a CEO with a house on both coasts. A JLC is a CEO with a family, a Doberman, a boat, a jet, and a house on both coasts. A Rollie is a CEO who wears Versace shirts, on their 3rd marriage with someone half their age, and drives a lime green Lambo.
