Recommend me a watch for a morning gift
maybe its just a tradition here in Norway – i dunno – but its a gift yuo get the morning after getting married. I wont bother you with the gift i am supposed to be getting her.
I’ve told the SO to get me a new bike frame instead but she wasnt very impressed with the idea and she is kinda insisting on getting me a watch. I suppose she’ll want to have some soppy engraving in the back side of it as well.Posted 7 years agoWoodySubscriber
Something simple and classy.
Have to agree with the above re IWC as they make beautifully engineered watches which aren’t going to ‘date’ and don’t carry any of the stigma that some other brands have. IWC Collection
You might struggle to get the one you want on your budget though 😥Posted 7 years agoloddrikMember
I’d get a rolex sub, no other watch combines smart and casual as well, plus they really do keep value better than most. Having said I’d probably rather get a used sea dweller. I’ve had numerous rolexes and whilst I haven’t had one for a while as I like to chop and change, if I had to have a watch for ever more it’d definitely be a sports rolex. Panetai et al are nice but obscenely overpriced for what they are. Rolex, when resale value is taken into account, are actually decent value for money.
I personally wouldn’t bother with the IWC as it just uses a valjoux 7750 movement, Fortis do more or less the same watch and quality for 60% of the price (B42 Flieger Chrono).Posted 7 years ago
the moon watch is very nice. Watching the moon landing in 1969 is one of my first memories
At the expense of sounding a watch whore, I have one of the 40th anniversary special edition ones, but that is the extent of my watch collection! My wife bought me one for my 40th, as I was born on the day they landed on the moon!
Here’s the 40th anniversary version….Posted 7 years ago
the Rolex Milgaus Is gorgeous. I will keep my datejust for the rest of my life if was ever to buy another watch it would be a Milgaus. It’s such a pity that people knock premium watches, they are different to your £100 seiko etc… One of the most annoying parts of ownership is know alls telling you thier opinion.Posted 7 years agooxnopMember
Have a look at Stowa Watches. Their Fliegler is simple and stunning (and niche too!) and will leave you enough change for a pretty good full suspension bike.
Its a good job you are getting married next year as the Stowa waiting list is around 3 to 6 months.

id try and pick up a
For £3k you could pick up a nice pre owned Panerai Luminor Marina from a reputable supplier – I can recommend Watchfinder.co.uk, I have just purchased a pre-owned Bell and Ross and they were fantastic to deal with. 😀Posted 7 years agomatthewjbSubscriber
£3,000 is a lot to spend if you’re not sure what you like.
First questions is do you want a sports watch or a dress watch? Do you wear a suit for work? Would something like this look out of place?
Are you bothered if people realise you have a £3,000 watch? If yes then avoid Rolex. Go for something like a JLC.
Although it may be beyond your budget.
I’m tempted to recommend an Omega Aqua Terra
Whatever you decide, make sure you try a few on. Watches that look great in the shop window can look rubbish on your wrist.Posted 7 years ago
