So I'll move my previous thread here, since about the only thing I do know is that I'm looking for something in the affordable range.
What I know is that I'd like to have automatic, just because everything I do in life is so freaking digital.
On the other hand, I travel a lot, so GMT would be nice to have. And so would be an alarm clock (which goes against automatic).
And, since I do quite a lot of public speaking, a chronograph would be nice to have. Or, maybe even a diver's watch could be used to time a presentation. And I'd like it to be suitable for business meetings. Oh, and I like the concept of 24 hour dial.
I visited a local dealer (they have a limited choice) today and I realized something odd, It seems I liked a simple Japanese quartz (forgot the brand, maybe it was even casio) the most. I tried a Certina and there was no chemistry between us.
Good lord, no wonder I don't have a watch. It's the simplest choice!
