May just be me and my wrists but to me the SKX007 fits smaller than I would like for a dive watch :(
Still love it though

Currently lusting after a Hamilton Jazzmaster Open Heart

That model exists in black/rose gold. A sharp combo.

Really eh? Time to buy a used one!
Sell you mine for 1k!

Seriously though, I didn't like the strap on mine. Maybe budget for a different strap:

Highly interested in the omega speedmaster professional moonwatch. Which dealers in Toronto come recommended and how much of a discount should I expect? Feel free to PM.

That's not the original strap though? Also, not worth $1000 (yet).

No the original has shiny vinyl look.

Looking for ideas at a pricepoint of 5-10k for a friend who wants to surprise her fiance with a watch (he's not a huge watch guy but does own a few $500-1k watches)
She said she is not looking for a dress watch

Ideas that I have come up with already (mostly the classics):
Omega Seamaster
Rolex Submariner
Omega Aqua Terra
Rolex Explorer (I or II)
Rolex Datejust

Any other ideas?
I know there's a ton available at this pricepoint but my familiarity with non-dress watches is less than great

IMO, It is really hard to buy a watch for someone else, especially at this price point. When you're spending that kind of money you need to make sure the person likes the watch.

Though I will say the Speedmaster professional is also a go-to in that price point.

Agreed - I encouraged her to make him part of the process but there seems to be no changing minds at this point so I recommended the Speedy Pro and a Datejust which IMO are great go everywhere do everything watches but want to see if someone has anything else in mind

I don't really care for the look of Speedmaster Pros. I find they're not as universally loved as a Datejust but lets be honest, I would love any of the one's you suggested so I'm sure he would too. Just maybe a safer bet with the Rolex name too.

For less than 4k, let me plug the Tudor black bay line. In house movement, 70 hour power reserve, cool retro styling and not something worn by every douchebag in a suit or porno director. Check out my pics in this thread.

For a more sporty look, check the Tudor pelagos.

For 10k, I would get a Glashutte Original senator automatic, as a classic dressy watch.
