Anonymous asked: I've always been interested in watches. I generally prefer something in the more classic vein, with an automatic movement. I'm finally ready to make my first big purchase. Well, big for me. I'm looking to spend between $1500-$2500 for a watch. This watch can be new or gently used. Any suggestions?
You have a lot of options! I did a quick search on watchrecon ( http://www.watchrecon.com/?current_page=2&price_start=1500&price_end=2600 ) and found a lot that fit your description. If it were me, I’d go for something like a Grand Seiko, a vintage Omega Speedmaster (moon-watch), or maybe a really nice vintage JLC Memovox. If you like the tool watch look, Damasko makes very high quality watches that actually fall under your price range for the most part and present great value for money. This article does a good job of explaining what’s so special about the company: http://wornandwound.com/2013/09/11/damasko-da44-review/
I hope this was helpful, let me know if you have additional questions!
