I can't believe you put Omega in the same sentence as Movado.
In China Omega is bigger than Rolex. Movado isn't even something a real watch guy considers. too many quartz movements and too easy to buy at the mall.
If you are not really into watches but can readily spend $5k then i would recommend getting a second hand Rolex. Something like a sub or sea-dweller from a reputable watch reseller.
You'll get the best bang for buck for a non-watch guy since they are excellent quality but also have the cache to get you into conversation / noticed / OMG HE HAS A ROLEX! type stuff... let's be honest here too, that is at least a small a part of why we buy this stuff.
