Some interesting blancpain models well within that range (the flyback chronograph would be my own choice), and they're something a bit different from he ususal

If you didnt have an overseas already i would have said overseas chronograph.
Yeah have flirted with a 50 fathoms before and had a deal done on a vc overseas Chrono that fell through after I put a deposit down!

Cyrus. You have a mighty budget there. Would you think of a pre ceramic Daytona of push the boat out to a ceramic? I know you had daytonas before. The zenith is lovely and I think it does its own thing. but prices will soften. Sell the JLC and go ceramic daytona?

I’m refusing to buy a Rolex at a premium so that rules most of them out for me , which is a pity as I’d like a ceramic to be honest I just don’t see the price holding longer term . Probably because I just above broke even on my 116520 in the past

I think it’s a rose gold Calatrava you are truely after. You have an itch there that won’t go away. But I think it would be a disappointment beside other watches in that price bracket (and even cheaper) ie a rose gold ALS in that bracket. You could buy second hand and have money left over from your budget easily.

My pick of the Calatrava is the 5296G. Comes in the rose gold 5296r as well.
