I stopped to see my friend who manages one of our city's higher end jewelry stores, they carry several lines of watches such as Rolex PP, JLC and Cartier among others. I was saying that my next major watch purchase would most likely be something from JLC,... 

Ohhhhhhh, very nice, platinum too.

but for a watch that won't get worn extensively the Baume may not be a bad option, for me anyway. Once my son becomes a doctor I'll tell him I want the JLC for Christmas.

and it eventually does. Just not sure I can justify the $7,000+ price tag of the JLC for something that will spend part of it's life in a safe. I can only wear one at a time and I have plenty now but don't want to sell/trade any of them. Just thinking tha...

B&M is very nice but I don’t know if you could say that with new or Preowned - anyway, good luck whatever you do. There isn’t a right answer but the get what you like mantra is IMO best

It's all about personal preferences, but there is a saying...
