    Splurge (sorta) watches?



    Hi,


    I'm thinking about getting a new watch, but I don't know a ton about automatic movements. I was originally looking at a Cuervo y Sobrinos Torpedo--they are beautiful--but I'm told it's an overpriced watch, given its pedestrian ETA movement. Here's a pic:

    Do you all have any alternative recommendations, given the type of look I'm going for?


    Thanks

    Never heard of Cuervo y Sobrinos. Looks from my rudimentary google searching that you are looking to spend approx $3k? For something sort of similar in that style I would go with a used Breitling Navitimer.


    For quite a bit less you could also go with Sinn's navitimer which I read somewhere (have not verified) was the result of purchasing leftovers from Breitling when the company changed hands.

      Wow - I hadn't heard of Sinn before, but these are really nice:
