    So I'm not much into watches. My most expensive is a $150 Kennth Cole watch. I've decided to upgrade to a watch with a budget under $1000. So I'm thinking of getting this watch. The Movado 800 Sub Series. I can get it for $995 minus 25% off.

    Work watches should have a few defining characteristics if you want the best bang for your buck:

    -Sapphire Crystal (helps prevent scratching)
    -Swiss Movement (slightly more precise than Japanese quartz movements)
    -Leather or titanium band (steel can be VERY heavy and annoying for daily wear)

    Things to avoid:
    -Rubber band
    -Digital components to face
    -Overly huge faces
    -Gold colored (this is more subjective but gold is generally harder to pair with clothes and is considered "old man"-ish)

    The best watches for work, in my opinion, are made by Tissot. High quality, Swiss-made watches in attractive and classic designs but without the insane price tags of the more highly marketed brands like Tag.

    What I'm saying is, a quartz watch is fine. But it would seem crazy to spend that much on a quartz, when for the same money you could have an automatic chronograph(eta 7750)

    Thanks brenster. I understand that much of it. What I meant was it doesn't help me decide what I should buy. I am just starting to learn about the different movements. Also what do you think of buying from grey marke sites? I see they are much cheaper but also people have had a lot of problems with them also. Particularly I'm looking into jomashop.com which seems to have fairly good reviews.

    Ah, ok I see what your saying now. What type of watch are you looking for? dressy, diver sport,swiss, japanese ect. As for grey market, I wouldn't hesitate to but from jomashop. They have a pretty good rep and great deals. If you look on Ebay, there is a seller named Timeparadise and he is a good grey market dealer that I have personal experience with.

    Looking for something classy, stainless steel band, black face, has the date, not too big (I have skinny arms), and probably Swiss or equivalent. Something I can wear to work every day. I'm a psychiatrist at a hospital.
    I'd like to learn what all the fuss is about regarding ETA, etc.

    Cool, have you found Watchuseek yet? I may have mentioned this site before on the thread somewhere. it's a great place to learn about everything watches. You will find something you like there. About Eta, As far as I know they don't actually make there own complete watches. But they are with very few exceptions what you'll find in a Swiss watch when an in house movement isn't used. The reason they are used is because they are a solid, quality movement, and I would assume also the cost associated with developing an in house movement.

    I bought a Raymond Weil Maestro a couple days ago. Got a good deal on it. (under $1000 down from $1450) It's a nice entry level automatic with classy looks. It's no Patek Phillipe, and will not hold its value because RW has only been around since 76 or so, but I just fell in love with the watch. I'll be saving for an IWC Portuguese now.

    I'm not a watch collector and I don't own any legitimately fantastic time pieces. I do however, own a Casio G Shock 2688. It's shock resistant, atomic, solar powered, water resistant to 200m and has world time zones. I'm thinking of picking up another G shock as mine has been great for the last 2 years and still looks good as new even with daily wear.

    Love the look of watches, but can't justify the price to myself. Then again, I'd be happy to lay out that much on a pair of speakers, but that's probably another thread.

    If you have a physically active job (I do as a personal trainer/strength & conditioning specialist), G-Shock is the best I've found in over 12 years for a "sports" watch. It stands up to crazy abuse, the atomic clock and solar power are super convenient and work really well. I have the same model as the one in your picture, except mine is all black where the silver is on yours. This thing will last me forever and though on the pricier side for a sports watch, it's likely one of the best values around for it's type.

    I did go through a watch collecting phase and have three very nice Wenger Swiss Army watches to show for it. Every bit as high quality as the Victorinox Swiss Army but for substantially less money. Both are genuine makers of Swiss Army, having contracts with the Swiss Army, but Victorinox is larger and more well publicized in the US.
    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    They actually have a unique style and like you said there unconventional. They do have a few that caught my eye. But I'm not a big fan of rubber straps.

    I bought the new style Longines Hydroconquest Quartz in blue and I just love it. Sold off a Tag Carrera I was tired of. Plus, automatics can wear on me a little. Sometimes I just want to grab a watch off the dresser and just slap it on. Quartz watches are nice, simple and accurate.

    i was into my watches (well i still am) but ive managed to get the collection i wanted so i no longer search!

    i traded and bought for a good many years until i found my holy grail. The Breitling Cosmonaute. i found one at a dealers, with original box and papers, and verified and serviced by breitling themselves.
    sold a few watches and paid the princely sum they wanted. it wont ever get worn, its an investment for my four year old son.
    the watches i do wear?
    i have a breitling montbrilliant, a tag heuer F1 Calibre S, tag heuer Monte Carlo, Citizen Red Arrows Ltd edt, (my daily watch) and one i never paid for, my breitling Emergency, which was given to me for my retirement from the Pathfinders, enscribd with my number and service by breitling.
    my wife wears an original Tag heuer F1 woman, (about 1996 model) and despite me offering a new Link, or a Carerra she says she loves the watch and wants nothing else!

    Here's what I rock, from WeWood. I have never really been in to watches. I'm an artist/designer and enjoy the outdoors. This brand makes some really unique stuff, at a very reasonable price, so it fit the bill!

    Now that I'm more comfortable with wearing something, I may look in to some more classic timepiece designs... or maybe not. We'll see!

    I'm wondering what the iWatch is going to do to traditional watches. They come in all sorts of prices and styles; some of them being extremely gaudy.....reportedly costing up to $10,000!

    I'm telling myself I don't want one, based on what I've seen so far. But if everyone starts wearing one, it will be for a reason, and it'll probably become mandatory to have one....like a cell phone is now.

    I have many watches, but I do fear they are about to become obsolete. They kind of are already since a lot of people don't use a watch anymore because they always have their phone.

    My watch is a style choice...not really for time telling. I need my bling. The tech watches are not very attractive or classic looking. I don't wear a watch out of necessity, it's for the looks.

    Really wanted to post this family heirloom, valuable for me due to sentimental, more than any the reasons. While at the lower end of Swiss watches, this particular brand has quite some history in my family, becoming in a quite unplanned manner, wearing one being quite a trademark accessory for some of some of my closest male relatives.

    My maternal grandfather owned one identical to the pictures below (not quite his, just some random internet pics of a wristwatch completely identical to his one, that became eventually mine), as did my father- yet another completely different type I know much less about, as well as paternal uncle, elder brother of my father who got yet another watch of this brand as a gift from precisely my dad (again, sadly no info available about his watch either).

    So, being the fourth in an increasing line of proud wearers of this particular brand- up to the point of considering purchasing a newer model myself, after being quite satisfied with the vintage one.


    Long story short, here are the promised pictures, from a few different angles:

    Very classic and understated styling!
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    I just ordered a Daniel Wellington dress watch. Very classic design...timeless you could say. I got the 40MM rose gold with the eggshell face and the black leather band.

    If I am allowed to confess a little secret, always considered the Max Bill series by Junghans, at least equal, if not even slightly superior, not just in terms of technical accomplishments, but mostly in terms of classic, understated, streamlined and non-nonsense design, to various more premium brands (as much as also admiring the work of Max Bill in general, as one of the most spectacular and original creative minds of the 20th century).

    At any rate, an outstandingly gentlemanly and tasteful choice (again, in my humble opinion).
