Hello everyone! I am helping a friend who is looking for serious watch. Here are her criterias:

1. At least 40mm in case size
2. The price must not exceed USD6000
3. Prefer thicker case
4. Must be steel bracelet
5. Prefer to have certain heritage and history
6. Prefer an iconic piece
7. Prefer chronograph complication
8. Prefer not the common brands like Rolex, Omega...

Thank you so much!

I may be in the direction of Mont-blanc, Breitling, Maurice LaCroix, Carl Burcherer and Ulysse Nardin. I think those are well known solid brands.

Rolex & Omega are "common brands"????

Not to this commoner!!!!! :)

Anyway, IWC certainly has iconic status as well as heritage and gravitas.

How about a nice Portuguese chronograph?

New or Used?

Used would open up things like Linde Werdlin, JLC, Girard perrgaux, Cartier, Zenith, Blancpain, Breitling, Perrelet

New, there's also Baume & Mercier, Grand Seiko,Seiko, Habring, Noms Frederique Constant, Longines,Damasko, Breitling

As well as all those already mentioned - apart from Tudor.

A personal bias, but I've never been fond of them and find them pretty derivative of their Rolex parent

Some judiscious of some of the online listing search tools should help while away the hours and narrow the field, even if only to see what is out there.

Rolex. Money in the bank.
Money out of the bank first! lol


As far as "Looking for a watch" goes, that meets your criteria, the choices are nearly endless!

I could prob be here all night listing watches that fit the bill...

You could have just as well said you're looking for a main-sequence star in the universe! lol

Parnis, Corgeut, Bliger, Sharkey, and Phoibos. All have a great heritage, and you won't pay over the top
