In this episode, Christian talks about the best everyday watch for $20k!!
Yes, $20,000 is a LOT of money to drop on one watch. But it’s also in a really sweet spot for quality. At $20k, as opposed to 15, you really start getting into some top quality pieces. Here are some of the options!
Our Pick – F.P. JOURNE CHRONOMETRE BLEU
This watch is out of this world. It comes out of nowhere and is so much more powerful in the metal than the photos would suggest. It’s cased in tantalum and the dial is incredibly reflective in light. The movement is phenomenal, the watch is absolutely unique, robust, and versatile!
Honorable Mention – The PATEK PHILIPPE AQUANAUT
The Aquanaut is a truly valuable watch. The 5167 Aquanaut represents the value of the Nautilus, a movement finished at top quality, and it carries the Patek brand. Sure, it comes with a rubber strap, but that’s sort of what makes the Aquanaut ‘the Aquanaut’ – and in an iconic way. And there is always the cool factor of the watch going a bit under the radar.
Honorable Mention – JLC MASTER ULTRA THIN PERPETUAL
This is a truly fine, Swiss, perpetual calendar watch. It delivers the high-class complication in a beautiful and robust way. It is substantial, more affordable than typical perpetual calendars, and it’s absolutely amazing. It’s charming as hell.
