Hi,
I love this watch:

As you can expect I can't buy it. I'm looking for an affordable alternative to that timepiece (maximum 1200$). Can you help me?

Longines has a F*** big catalogue, what model can match for my taste?
Not so many that you can't browse on your own. But you came to the right place, people here like to handfeed.

Some of the things that make a dream watch are the history of the manufacturer, the pedigree of the movement, the complexities to the case and the finishing of the case and dial. Only you will know if you can be happy with a look alike costing many tens of thousands less and having little of the original's substance.

I love Patek timepieces, obviously I don't have the money required to buy one.
But I like to wear elegant watches while I earn some money from lottery. I found another one that is more affordable for me:


What do you think about this one?

I'm going to give you sage advice and save up for this piece ($250k). Never settle and accept an alternative or you'll just end up spending more in the long run until you get your watch!






.....of course I'm kidding. :) I vote for the one Longines AAMC / the third one you posted.

maybe this...with the single push piece chronograph...

but it's a "bit" above your budget I think

This one kinda gets close to the 5370, still doesn't do it for me but it's in the right direction.


Some of the recommendations in this thread though...

Well that lasted one day and the OP's gone again. New member syndrome. Why you guys like to waste so much time? Making sales? LOL.
