Another watch thread

I couldn't find that one watch thread where you guys posted recommendations so here's mine. I'm looking for a watch in the $500-600 range (or $1000 or so at Tourneau ). I'm open to all suggestions/brands/etc.

PS: Just get whatever you like. You're not buying "the shit" at that price range. Hell, I'd just spend a few hundred and buy something that looks awesome.

T-minus 10 posts until this one goes down the drain and ends up as a "save your money and buy a Rolex" thread.

I have a couple from this place. Great boutique brand and really quality pieces. Gunter (owner) has several pieces that are in your price range. They come out of Germany and take about a week to get here, but are well worth it.

Garage List
I was in that same situation recently...but the stuff I really wanted was all like $1500+

I ended up buying this Guess

http://www1.macys.com/catalog/produc...tegoryID=29200

Love it so far, only $125 so I don't feel guilty wearing it everyday, and looks more expensive than it is...I've gotten compliments from people wearing Oris, Omega, etc. thinking I'm wearing an $800 watch. FWIW if you're set on getting a premium brand, I recommend Oris, they have some really good looking stuff in $800 range. But for me, If I'm not spending $1000+ I figured I might as well just get something cheap and pocket the extra $600

When I was looking in the 700-1000 range Amazon.com seemed to have a really good selection

Well it's important to set goals man... $450.00 is a reasonable price and you shouldn't feel bad about getting it on your way to the 335.

I've actually found that sometimes getting a little reward mid-push actually helps you a bit on the way to the top. Especially if work is really tedious/stressful for a consecutive number of days (~30+). It can kind of make it "worth it" so to speak.

Of course in this arena, I can only give bad advice... I'm always looking for a new excuse to fill another slot in the 'ole watch box.

I'll be THAT guy. Save your money and get a higher end brand or just stick with a $50 Casio.

My advice would be to get on timezone.com and ask the same question. I'd also recommend against buying any watch with a fashion designer's label on it. Gucci, guess, armani, etc., are all not worth it. From the horological perspective, there are more interesting timex's out there, imo.
