  1. My first luxury watch was a Speedmaster, not the one presented here but the silver faced Day Chronograph.
    That was almost 20 years ago. Since, I have ditched the steel bracelet for leather bands, playing around with the colours.
    It looks amazing in green!

  2. Teddy, I think you missed two important brands and watches that fit this category; the JLC Reverso and the Cartier Tank. These are two major time piece series that offer great first luxury options. They carry enormous historical chops, brand credentials, and can be had for less than $7k. Luxury watches don't just equate to divers.

  3. Bear in mind, for those balking at the prices of some of these, you can pick up all of these up on the second hand market and, in some cases, fetch them at a hefty discount. Sure they may be older models with minor changes to the design, but that’s on you to make the call.
