caring this much about watches makes you about as intelligent as those birds that collect pieces of tin foil (aluminum for all you yanks) to attract a mate.

you need to change your name

A. Lange & Sohne or FP Journe are far better in the same price range imo. I've owned all the aforementioned brands and was not impressed by my AP ROs level of finishing. The patek was nice but not amazing.

FP doesn't nearly have as much history as the other names.

Who cares? Do you also buy your cars that way?

"my Ford has so much history though"

your girlfriend definitely has history, yet you still drop thousands on her. what's your point.

Thoughts for the plebs looking to dip their toes into watches for decent automatics at cheaper prices ($1k-$2k)? In-house movement only like Seiko? Hamilton? Nothing and save up for later?

Jan 9, 2020

Baume and Mercier Classima is a good basic, not their own movement until you go to the Baumatic range I believe.

Some people hate on Frederique Constant but they make their in-house movements for very affordable prices and have watches with some cool stuff (moonphase available from ~2k here yet prefer this one that is more expensive)

This guy knows what he's talking about.

H Moser also makes a fantastically innovative perpetual calendar that can be picked up for under 25k USD.

For me, it's Patek, then Vacheron Constantin, then AP.

Jan 9, 2020

Patek Philippe is what rolex is to blue colar workers but for the elite - has always been leading watch making innovation

Vacheron Constantin very refined traditional swiss watches, yet doesn't carry as good of a name as Patek

Audemars Piguet made it to the big names and is more recognised due to its Royal Oak but because of that has lost its traditional image

A. Lange & Sohne are great German watches, not quite swiss yet though

Jan 10, 2020

The Germans have been making watches longer than the Swiss, so not sure what 'not quite Swiss' is supposed to mean. ALS at least finishes the movements on all their watches to a high standard, unlike PP which definitely scales their effort back for the cheaper models.

If you want a solid diver and are tired of Subs, AP isn't bad. If you want a complex movement that'll work for decades go with PP. Like many comments on this thread, there are excellent brands in AP's and PP's price range but for some people branding may matter. Between the two brands themselves, I would by the Nautilus over the RO but the ROO over the Aquanaut. For everything else, PP. AP is trying to diversity a bit and make classic looking watches but I predict they'll either be a flop or for die hard AP fans. Even for their super simple Jules Audemars models, who wouldn't consider a Lange Saxonia first?
