Okay 2021 i'm gonna get a good watch.


A Black watch.

I don't like Omega.

Recommendation pls.
since you got a budget bigger than $8k, go for this.

If you're considering relatively new releases, you have a few options:

Cartier Santos ADLC WSSA0039 (RRP S$11,100)



Zenith A384 Revival 'Shadow' (RRP S$12,000)



Panerai PAM01661 (RRP S$18,400)



IWC Pilot's Watch Top Gun (RRP S$8,650)



Hublot 40th Anniversary Black Ceramic (RRP ~S$14,000), limited to 200 pcs.



TAG Heuer Monza 40th Anniversary (RRP ~S$7,000) -- feels lacking without a Heuer; that being said, this model seems to be discontinued, but still available around stores.

Oh man appreciate all the replies with the stores potentially carrying Mido and I will contact them all.
In the case where I might need to purchase on Chrono24, anyone had experience they can share? And how to have the watch authenticated etc... Many thanks.

So this watch i sold via Carouhell, i saw some seller from Italy using my photos at Chrono24 and also saw a number of Russian sellers selling at ultra cheap price.

Like any other platform, it's not 100% genuine, make sure the seller have positive review.

Better buy @ Gnomon like someone suggested earlier.

i just tried the Zenith Defy El Primero 21 in black ceramic earlier this week. That piece is a beast. You got the double escapement, 1 for the running time and 1 for the chronograph. The chronograph is beating at 1/100. One you see the video / hands-on, you will always admire it. tbh it's underrated imo.

The skeleton is nice. But find it slightly big at 44mm.

top hour is about $50, no need prior appointment. just take note their opening hours. authentication is about 15mins only.

Do they open the back of your watch and provide certification if it is only 15mins?
