First luxury watch - help
I have been recently promoted to associate and also got a generous bonus. Amateur when it comes to watches and feel lost for my first acquisition. Ideally, I would like to target a $5k-$6.5k budget. I had some options in mind, such as Omega Aquaterra (blue dial) or the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch. However, I might be childish but the recent collaboration with Swatch restrained me a little bit. I also like Cartier, but the yellow gold Santos is a bit out of my budget (the one I truly like), and people told me that Cartier was more about the brand than a good watchmaker (not sure how true it is). Mid-level Rolex would be great, such as Oyster Perpetual, but let's be realistic you can't find a brand new anywhere.
Any recommendation or guidance is appreciated thanks!
