Rolex and Panerai are also good watches, but I do think you pay higher prices to support their marketing efforts. At those price points (above $5,000) you get a better watch if you look at IWC or Zenith.
Yep, I agree. Hence my nixing Tag and Movado overall. Just too generic for the most part. There are some exceptions, but I'd rather have a watch at that price range be from a brand that's exclusive most (if not all) of the time vs. an exception here or there.
I looked at IWC, but a bit too bland for my tastes. What I really want is a Hublot. Given my taste, I'll end up with a Rolex Subm., Panerai Luminor, or Breitling Chronomat Flying Fish.
