At this price range you can either choose to put up a house deposit, or just buy the house in cash or buy one of these watches, it is entirely your choice. If you are looking to purchase watches at this price range you have absolutely no limitations when it comes to brands. This guide will just have my own personal recommendations as there are way too many watches to cover in one single post. All prices are in USD.
A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Thin 205.086 ($27,000)
My favourite timepiece from A. Lange & Söhne all due to the style of the watch and that beautiful dial. The style is the simple dress style of watches but that dial has one unique difference from the standard dials. It has an aventurine dial which makes the dial sparkle just like the stars at night as you move the watch around. I would probably get lost looking at this watch but this is the sole reason why it is my favourite watch. The case is made of white gold with a case diameter of 39mm. It has a manual movement that can be seen through the exhibition case back. Pictures will not do this watch justice, so if you ever get the chance to see it in person you will not be disappointed.
Omega Speedmaster Apollo XIII “Silver Snoopy Award” ($30,000+)
This is my favourite Omega Speedmaster variation I have seen. The blue bezel and the white dial complimented with the blue hands and hour markers works perfectly. The case size is 42mm and has a blue nylon strap which definitely pairs perfectly with the watch. The case back of the watch unlike having a normal exhibition window, has a very unique window. As per Omega’s website “An animated Snoopy in his Command and Service Module (CSM) is shown on a magical hand, which rotates when the chronograph function is used.”
Patek Philippe Celestial Platinum Grand Complication 6102P-001 ($260,000+)
I am going to ignore the price of this watch just for the sake of my own sanity. The watch has a sky chart as the dial of the watch. Meaning the watch dial rotates the dial so the owner can see the exact configuration of the night sky in the northern hemisphere, with the movement of the stars, and the phases and orbit of the moon. The case is made of platinum and has sapphire crystal on the both the front and the case back. The watch movement is also an automatic movement but with a mini-rotor instead of the usual massive half rotor seen on most automatic watches. The movement also comes with a power reserve between 38-48 hours. On Patek Philippe’s website it shows exactly how to set the time and the sky chart on the watch.
Tank Louis Cartier WGTA0011 ($12,900)
At this price range you can get a huge variety from Cartier, this is just my pick. You can even get a Cartier Solo for $2,610 if you want a cheaper Cartier with almost the same look as this one. Now this watch has the iconic Cartier look, that being the square dial with the roman numerals. This particular model comes with a manual movement and the case is made of 18K rose gold. With a beaded crown set with a sapphire cabochon. It also comes with brown alligator skin leather strap and a case diameter of 33.7mm. It is also water-resistant to 30m and has a beautiful sunburst effect on the middle of the dial.
Breguet Reine de Naples 9818BB/5V/922/DD0D ($35,000)
One of the best watchmakers ever to make watches, and their watches are nothing short of amazing to look at. This particular watch is encased in 18 carat white gold, and the bezel of the watch is set with 64 diamonds (1.65 carats). The crown is set with a diamond itself with a case size of 32.7mm. The dial is in lavender-coloured mother-of-pearl and comes with an automatic movement from Breguet with a 38 hour power reserve. It also comes with a sapphire crystal case back, but I cannot find one picture or reference that shows the movement for this exact model.
