Which watch should I pick

I have been debating on getting a new watch to commemorate a milestone I hit recently and have 3 watches in my mind, them being the Omega speedmaster, Tudor balck bay 58 925 and a Cartier Santos Medium. I am also open to other options around 10k usd and would love to hear your opinions on them.

In my mind both the Omega and the Tudor are representatives of what one buy when one has no idea what to buy. They are painfully devoid of anything that can attract me to buy either of them.

The Santo OTOH is a bit different, it may not be suitable for wearing everyday but it sure shows that the person wearing it invested some thought before pulling out his credit card.

For $10K, you can buy two of those watches as long as one is the 58, they are all awesome watches. However, at that price, you are in high horology territory, especially second-hand, and honestly, I would not even think of those three in that realm. Again, at 10K, that opens up a ton of watches, be it your choice of Steel DJ, GO, Blancpain, Speedy 57, GS, Chronomaster, Portugieser, and even strong independents like Habring and Dornbluth.

If it were me that price for a celebration piece, depending on the collection, I would likely start with a Steel DJ, then Chronomaster, or Speedy 57. All are very versatile and classic in their own way but, that is me and you should go try on a ton of watches and find the one that clicks with you individually. Good luck and happy hunting.

Thanks for the suggestions, I did have the chronomaster in mind but have seen a lot of reviews of the chrono minute hand just randomly jumping so I am a bit vary of purchasing it. And as for a DJ I already have a black dial 36 DJ and to be honest I have started to loose interest in Rolex because of how the market and ADs treat their customers. But I will look into the Harbring salmon and the Dornbluth and sons.

Certainly, no need for a second DJ in that case. Good luck, so many great options.

I think the better solution is to figure out what you actually want, rather than buying what the "watch community" has decided are the watches people should buy in a particular price range.

Buy what speaks to you! Personally, I never try to be swayed by what others like. At the end of the day, the watch you decide to own should make you happy! Trust yourself!💪

For me under 10k.

Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Stainless steel - Anthracite AB0118221B1P1 | Breitling GB

If you can stretch little further or look into the grey market.

Premier B25 Datora 42 Stainless steel - Copper AB2510201K1P1 | Breitling GB

Lot of watch for the money
