Hi guys, i am trying to buy a nice watch for my wife, maybe not more than $1.3k. Have any recommendations? Shes not really a watch collector, so more concerned with the watch design rather than the movement or whatnot. TIA!

I was looking for something in that price range for mine as well. Thought of going for a 35mm Longines Heritage, probably closer to 1.5k after discount.

Hmm did you ask about the price at the shop or did you see the online prices. I couldnt find any price indications for longines.

It's 1750 RRP. I casually asked and the SA who I have no purchase history with quoted 10% discount off the bat, so shouldn't be too hard to get to 15% at least.

Hi guys, I'm currently looking for a formal watch that I can wear to work. Not so concern about the movement, I think most watches should be fine in that aspect. Budget is not more than $3000.

I'm not a watch collector, so just wanna get a reliable and nice one to last me for many years.

I'm open to 2nd hand ones also, if its in good condition.

I once had a seiko kinetic, cost me just $800 and lasted me for almost 10 years, hence I have a great inclination and good feel about seiko watches. BUT the impression i get from people around me is that seiko is uncle and, well, not prestigious. Ok I'm uncle level age also already though lol

I saw a 2nd hand Zenith watch gg for about $3k+ in far east and it looks good.

Saw some omega online for about that range also.

Any recommendations for a formal watch that does not need changing of battery, and good enough to wear to work below 3k?

women probably don't need expensive watches. fashion watches do very well for them actually. no guys will judge them on their watches (but not vice versa).

if into divers, suggest this. above your budget but chio. about sgd2.2k + tax on jomashop but women typically prefer smaller watches so it may not be to her taste.

best brand that women will not reject is cartier. just buy 1x good one instead of a longines then down the road wont lose its gloss.

have you tried the zenith on your hand? it's not really to my taste and i think typically sizes a bit large for asian wrists.

3000 budget probably tudor.

up some more 5000ish people will usually get omega but i find it wayyyy to common for my taste already.

maybe you can look for a classy 2nd hand JLC or maybe a cartier (if your dress sense matches) instead. but it'll be prob 5k as well.

Sounds good, I was targeting 20% as the biz looks terrible, don't think they're moving much stock.
