    I have just always loved the Seamaster TBH. Just the simple blue dial and bezel, nothing fancy. Was hoping to drop less than £1500 (in the new year) but prices seem to have risen quite a bit in recent years...

    Would consider other options, just want something nice and not too flashy, have never worn any other jewelry apart from a nice pair of glasses, and fancied treating myself. The only stipulation is no leather straps.

    I know it's a lot of money, for something that you could get a lot cheaper for the same function. But like any jewelry it's about what its worth/means to the wearer than anyone else.

    Have you looked at Oris? Granted they haven't got the kudos of an Omega on your wrist but they're nice pieces and the second hand prices are a lot more reasonable.

    List price for a Seamaster is around £2400, but I would expect you to be able to get one for £2000 with some haggling. I know of a near mint one going for £1650 but an older model could be had well within budget.

    Whilst I did say avoid forums, you could do a lot worse than look on somewhere like tz-uk.com for inspiration. The Friday threads are a good start. Some pieces well out your budget but a lot well within.

    Stick to the singing Sam, you'll find it more benefit-able
