One does not need to buy 'new'. Lots of options in pre-owned, but half the price of new. Many of them, one cannot tell the dif from new.

You been doing it longer than myself. My first really nice watch was a Rolex GMT Master purchased in 1980 for $800 approx, new retail, from a Bailey, Banks & Biddle store in Springfield,MO. It was the all-stainless, Red/Blue, Oyster flip-lock...I was totally in awe of that first one and, to this day, remains my fav watch. Had a Rolex Explorer II, Black for a while also, and that is surely on my list of fav ones. I recently purchased a Bell & Ross BR01-93 GMT and do like it, near as well or better.
I would like to see a big date window on the GMT. The present tiny date window is...not of value

Any Bell & Ross authorized dealer can get the larger strap. They are avail in 3 sizes. If you want to explore another idea...www.thestrapsmith.com...makes beautiful straps one at a time, just for you.
My fav watches are the Rolex GMT Master and Explorer 2, and the Bell & Ross GMT. They all in the $5-7k range. Function and beauty.
I just purchased the B&R GMT and really like it. Very striking appearance and great function. I actually prefer it over a Rolex GMT Master. Though the Rolex is much more classic in design, the large B&R GMT is beautiful also.
