Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 2500m 3 Days Titanio: The Swiss-made brand with Italian heritage now has an impressive portfolio of in-house movements. This distinctive divers’ watch is equipped with the automatic caliber P.9000. On a rubber bracelet, it sells for €9,200.
Rolex GMT-Master II: Even though Rolex prices have gone up dramatically in the past few years (that’s also why they hold their value, by the way), I would say that nearly all steel Rolexes are still a good deal. The new 2013 GMT is equipped with the in-house caliber 3186. The price of the watch shown here, with steel bracelet: €6,800. Click here for more detail on the new Rolex GMT-Master II.
Zenith Pilot GMT: When Jean-Frederic Dufour (recently named CEO of Rolex) took over Zenith, he brought the brand back to its roots. Today, it offers a wide range of excellent and affordable in-house calibers. This Zenith Pilot watch is equipped with the Elite 693. This watch sells for €6,000.
Comments? Any other brands with manufacture watches under €10,000 you feel should have been included? Let me know.
