WOW, the Christopher Ward u suggest i really like, nearly new mean it was used b4? if there is scratches and seem like it has been worn is it able to claim warranty?
and I worry bout the length is too large for my wrist...need ur suggestion since I've no experience about it
nearly new are items bought and customer returned them within 60 days. I got mine nearly new and didn't find any scratches, it looked brand new to me.
if U don't like U, U can return it to get an exchange within 60 days. they have 60 days return policy and 60 mths warranty.
U getting a leather band, don't have to worry its too long. or are U thinking of steel?

Anyway, i was looking some eye charming and long lasting design watch, found my tissot prs516 quiet old and it is the time to change...
U need to provide more info on what kinda of what u seek?
whats eye charming? any functions U seek?
long lasting design? U mean timeless? for rm$4K U can get Longines, Louis Erard, Sinn etc.
irrc your choice is this Mido on ETA 2836 (most likely top grade)http://www.righttime.com/rt/mido/m83408d811.htm
diver try longines conquest with ceramic dial. L633 movement (mod ETA 2824-2) after discount close to 4K I think. http://www.authenticwatches.com/longines-c...-l36574566.html
retro look but discountinued iirc, http://www.authenticwatches.com/longines-s...-l27004536.html
entry level LONGINES HYDROCONQUEST Chrono ~rm3.6K after discount maybe their cheapest chrono watch.
Guinand G-2401 is at ~rm$2k the G-330M is rated at 330m with helium escape valve also at same price. both on ETA 2824-2
their series 20 chrono is at ~rm$3.2K see link below.
40 series reviewed here and they cost ~rm$4.1k. a little history on this brand, they used to make watches for Sinn, maybe Bell and Ross. movement are nicely decorated, U not going to find much work done on Oris and Longines. at 4k U not going to get a chrono on these brands too.http://forums.watchuseek.com/showthread.ph...ghlight=guinandhttp://forums.watchuseek.com/showthread.php?t=158528http://guinand-watch.com/index.php?option=...d=63&Itemid=181
looking for a diver with GMT (world time)

patryn , too bad CW C5 is 38mm not 40-42mm ...
its midsize watch. get the C600 i got and its a nice 43mm
or the C8 at 44mm or C40 at 42mm, hard to find ETA 7750 under $2K. an ETA 7750 movement already cost around rm$1.2k.
try archimede they cost ~$1.5K and are at 42mmhttp://www.archimede-uhren.de/EN/Arcadia.htm
a 39.5mm Tissot Classic Le Locle leather may cost around rm$1K or less.
btw not shop at below b4.http://www.classybrand.com/watches/watch_f...41.1.423.33.asp
or Aristo. 44mm manual not auto, russian movement german made. not sapphire crystal, just mineral so can scratchhttp://www.gnomonwatches.com/AristoHP7.htmlThis post has been edited by patryn33: May 17 2010, 09:47 AM
