For under $5k, in the not too dressy/not too casual field, you have NOMOS and Tudor offering nice stuff.

But honestly, for that price, I'd go vintage.

I thought about nomos but idk, just doesnt scream lyle to me . There is always a vintage datejust or tudor or something. Obviously like the other poster said you can put a brown strap on anything , but you already know that.

I'm currently leaning towards the JLC. I'll just take a years worth of French classes or something. And yes I know you can put a brown strap on anything but in my mind I picture a brown leather watch and a black leather watch as two fairly different looking things if that makes any sense.

As for Nomos and Tudor, I'm not a huge fan of either although admittedly I haven't spent much time looking at Tudor watches before.

Probably the 2017 Railmaster.

Man I would love that watch.

I was recently in the market for a nice watch to fit my tiny, tiny wrists, and was looking at mid-size Omegas, but ended up with a trusty Seiko SKX013. I couldn't justify the cost of the Omegas right now and knowing me I would have babied it too much. I wanted something for daily wear that I wouldn't be so worried about.

Loving it so far. It's nice wearing a light watch again after using some bulkier ones day to day for a few months now.

How'd you get it so fast? Did you just go to an AD?

Yeah, it cost a bit more but when spending that much on a watch I feel a lot more comfortable knowing it has the full manufacturer warranty.

Man, I just can't get over the typeface used for the numbers. I'm not sure about the about the brushed dial and the faux-vintage lume either, but I think at least the former I can't really judge without seeing it in person.

Shame, because I thought the previous Railmaster was pretty cool. I assume it sadly was at least a bit of a flop, though.

Maybe it is too big for your wrist? Thats all i got . Turtle reissue is great, and the price they can be had for is hard to resist.

I got about $500 on my birthday for a watch. Is that enough to get a nice one or should I just care about the look and not about the mechanism underneath or the brand? Right now I got a Festina with a black leather strap and a Certina with a metal strap.

Found this automatic watch:


Don't know how it feels on the arm, but it could be fun with an automatic watch and it looks nice. It's rather cheap as well.
