Im in the market for a watch with budget of £5k/ $8k


what I want want is something that will hold its value preferably and a bit flashy.

I have my heart set on a Brietling Navitimer, or a rolex submariner

I dont want something that everyone has as I feel the rolex is a bit common

so any ideas?

IMO, Breitling is one of the nicer pieces that falls into the flashy luxury class. Not sure about value, but would search on the gray market as discounts should be rather easy to find. Several PAM pieces can be had in your budget, and they will hold value, but not sure if they'd be flashy enough for you.

Yes i agree that rolex is very common...
I wouldnt take the rolex...cause i think i would regret it soon

I suggest you as top three

1. Vacheron Constantin Overseas grey or with the bracelet...
2. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak
3. Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5167


or some other choices i would think would be iwc pilot... jaeger le coultre amvox...or if you like the tonneau shape one first in line frank muller...

something that will hold its value AND flashy? that's going to be hard within your budget because most flashy watches are on the trendy side and lose a lot of value within a couple of years (hublot, etc)

i'd go for a watch with a chronograph like iwc 3717 or panerai 212. the watch faces aren't too simple and they should maintain some of their value for a while.

Cartier. Good quality. In the price range. Some are flashy. Decent discounts to be had. Holding value? Well, it depends on how good of a deal you get to begin with. I've had AD's that I have no relationship with start at 25% off MSRP.

A shiny breitling has got to be near the top of the list of watches fitting your bill.

Bentley (a couple of variations to choose from)
Super Avenger
Emergency Mission

All available with heavy, flashy bracelets

I think used Breitling Navitimer is a good choice - plenty of them available.
Budgetwise 2,5k£ will be enough.
