    I just pre-ordered this one. Probably will have to wait half a year for it.

    I'm looking to buy a watch to wear for my Graduation day. I'm in my 20s, therefore price limited :-)

    Please post pictures or links, :-)
    Give me an idea of where to look.

    My basic recommendations would include mid-range priced, but high quality brands like Tissot- virtually available in any good quality department store, mall or watch shop, a great range of quartz and automatic Swiss mechanisms, sturdy and well-made metal cases, almost exclusively sapphire crystal dial windows, also a great range of sporty or dressy models

    tissot.ch- their website itself is a good place too start, while a wide range of their watches is available on Amazon.com and in in most online as well as regular retail stores

    Hey Troyvi,

    Maybe you should check out the watchuseek forums. There are so many options and many styles you can choose from. You should also mention what style do you prefer (dress, dive,...) and what type of budget (you said limited but exact price range is more help full ie. <1000, 1k-2k, 2k>)

    If your price range is above 1k, Ball is an excellent choice (http://ballwatch.com/). If you look around in the market place, you can score some nice ones under 1k.

    For under 1k range, Steinhart is a strong company with many glowing reviews for their watches (http://www.steinhartwatches.de/en/). I've been lusting over their Ocean 1 GMT and Apollon for a while now.

    Read around a bit and pick out what fits you best. Hope you score yourself a beautiful graduation watch.

    EDIT: I surfed watchuseek and saw you selling your Raven. ^^" You already have a Kingston (which I adore and wished I had one) so you DON'T need a new watch LOL.

    The watch I'd love: Linde Werdelin SpidoLite SA

    http://www.ablogtoread.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/linde-werdelin-spidolite-dlc-watch1.jpg

    There's an Ellesse watch I found a few years back and only sold by H Samuel Jewelers in the UK. I think it's now discontinued but I'm determined to track it down. Black leather band with white stitching, rectangular brushed aluminum frame, black face with chronograph and some orange lettering.

    Thank you! I love that watch even though it doesn't have a sweep second hand, and I need one for work, I still wear it to work. I also like several inexpensive brands like Mondain.

    Simplicity rocks. I think it is better off without the extra hand (though I understand the inconvenience when it stops).

    http://www.chrono24.com/en/home/index.htm might be a good place to start, if nothing else to get a grasp of current prices.

    In my personal opinion, do not buy a replica just because you can't pay for the watch you want. Use the money to save for the real thing instead and get a Timex in the meantime. Replica watches are generally horrible quality and the companies that sell them are crooks, IMO.

    I rarely see a watch I like. Especially among those marketed towards women. But this one from 2009 definitely stood out for me:

    I'm still quite young, so while I enjoy nice classy watches, I also enjoy wearing things like this, which I bought just yesterday:

    I've gotta say I've been a fan of Swatches since I got my first one in 1987. I thought that once I was older and able to afford more expensive watches, I'd ditch Swatch, but such has not proven the case. In fact, I bought two new ones last month that I have worked into the rotation. I think the first Limelight is the ultimate status symbol and I'd love to find one to wear when I get all dressed up.

    Here's a question for you watch gurus... I've always heard about Swiss being tops. However recently, I've been hearing a bit more about Japanese? Is that legit? I don't know the lingo very well, but whatever the time-keeping part of the watch is called is what I'm referring to. I just recently made my first foray into a fairly expensive watch (compared to average, see the Nixon above), so I'm still learning.

    The difference between japanese vs swiss is the watch movement. The swiss hand built, very precise while the orient is robotic built very precise also but not as much as the swiss. The quality may differ also. This is why the big names like Rolex, Tag heuger, breitling to name a few are built the swiss way.

    Guys, how do you measure the precision of these watches? All my watches seem precise to me and my most expencive one was around 120 USD, so nowhere near that Nixon
