I am looking to get a pocket watch. Originally, I was going to just go buy one, but quickly realized there is a lot of difference between all of them. I was also looking for a 'new' one since I wanted to use it daily and not worry too much about damaging an antique (not that I am abusive to them). I have found a couple that I like. They are made by Classique, Bernex, and Jean Marcel. Are any of these brands 'good'? They all have the swiss 6498 movement.
My price point is in the ballpark of 500 give or take. IF I decide to go with an VINTAGE one, what would you guys suggest? I can't imagine an older one would keep better time than a new one, but that's why I am here to ask you folk's opinion.
My taste is that I want something 'silver' in color, preferably a hunting style case.
Thanks for the help!
I think I want a mechanical. Id like the accuracy of a Quartz movement in a 10 dollar watch, but if Im going to carry a PW, then I may as well at least get a mechanical one.
