Whether you're upgrading your own timepiece or gifting someone lucky a present that will remembered forever, $3,500 is a great threshold for securing a pre-owned luxury watch. Here are 10 of the best:

Tudor Heritage Black Bay, $3,175

This is the most blacked-out Tudor you can buy, and its menacing good looks are set off by Rolex-quality mechanicals.

Rolex Datejust, $3,300

Given the worldwide Rolex shortage, it's incredible that you can still find a great vintage Datejust for a price like this, so don't sleep on it.

TAG Heuer Carrera, $3,300

This handsome and rare flyback chronograph version of the classic Carrera originally retailed for over $8,000, so it's a real steal.

Bremont Martin Baker Ejector Seat, $3,000

British watch brand Bremont has made a name for itself with rugged, elegant timepieces like this piece inspired by an aviation essential.

Breitling TwinSixty 2, $3,050

The TwinSixty is a freshened-up take on Breitling's classic Navitimer, produced for a very short time and thus rarely available for sale.

Cartier Pasha Seatimer Chronograph, $3,376

Another unusual offering, this time from Cartier, the Pasha gets a nautical makeover but doesn't lose its somewhat louche styling.

IWC Automatic Pilot Chronograph, $3,350

This is a great buy on the all-time classic IWC pilot's watch, in a 42mm size that won't encumber you whether you're in flight or at the bar.

Tudor Heritage Chrono, $3,400

This funky throwback to one of Tudor's swinging '70s designs has style for days and looks great on a nylon NATO to boot.

Omega Speedmaster Professional, $3,600

A great price on a modern Moon watch, this is an iconic item that will just get better with age and will also look sharp on a leather strap.

Nomos Metro Neomatik, $3,400

Nomos turned up the dial on the design of this 38.5mm automatic with a deep navy blue dial that is sure to win friends and influence people.
