Glad to be part of a forum and I'm new to watches really. I'm loving learning about them and day dreaming about collecting them etc.
Recently got my first decent watch, a seiko alpinist, I just loved it from the first time I saw one and my girlfriend was good enough to get me one for my birthday.
I think that makes a great first watch and I have a few different straps for it to fit a few different occasions and styles.
As luck would have it I should coming into around 4-5 grand which I can allocate to watches so I'm after some suggestions. Also luckily my girlfriend has said she'd buy me a watch when we get engaged and she's floating an omega speedmaster professional as a possible price point.
So assuming I have the alpinist and we'll count the speedmaster in as well, what do you think for the 4-5 grand? I'm thinking a diver or gmt and dress watch to round off the collection. Should I just get one good watch for all the money or split it.
I really do want a rolex one day just so I have had one and I'm wondering about trying to stretch the budget to reach an older datejust or explorer 2 which would be great but maybe I'd be better getting a couple of really nice quality divers/gmt or dress watch. I'm thinking:
