ths for all the inputs...i've saw some real cool breitling on display in hour glass but did not ask the sales rep for the pricing. how much does the chrono avenger cost? i think my wallet will happier if I get a pre-owned rolex instead of a brand new one. however, im also concerned abt the suitability of wearing a rolex for someone my age. What other brands do you think will be more suitable for someone in their early 20s? I have a budget of around under 5k to work with at the moment.
Ever consider a Tag? I think Tag r good for day to day use...

breitling is not cheap too...their newer watches(after 2000) are all COSC certified..
hearsay chronograph cost more to serivce..not sure about the after-sale support of breitling...better find out..

Actually breitling had this exhibition for their watch owners in ngee ann city....2 halls and they had an aircraft on display there...from what i see, they had special breitling technicians there to check their owner's watches etc..

Get Breitling SuperOcean Steelfish, impressive size of 42mm and costs slightly under 3k (last year's price, dunno if price increased already or not).

For guys in the 20's, usually Chrono watches. Omega Speedmaster Pro/Bond Seamaster, Breitling Superocean Chrono, Tudor Chrono (I think it's the tiger woods chronograph). All under 4k. Although Tudor watches use the ETA movements, their cases feel comfortable on the wrist.

Tag Heuer, hmm.... only when I was in JC, but just my 2 cents. Cheers!

Daytonas with the El Primero Movement are last manufactured in 1999/early 2000 if I remember correctly. Who knows, their value might shoot up. Just look at the vintage Panerais with Rolex movements. If u own one... woohoo!
