    Looking for your advices...

    Dear experts,
    I have a plan to buy a mechanic, self-winding watch for my brother (for a special purpose). The budget is up to 1300 euro. I was thinking to buy, for example, Zeppelin watch...but probably there are many nice and good time pieces on the watch market and I think many of you can say other options. So, would you please give me ideas about good quality watches? Thank you in advance...

    The watch you cited is hardly vintage. I suggest you ask about it in Public. (Things are organized into topic specific forums on WUS.)

    That price would get him a nice vintage watch which, originally, sold for far more than a similarly priced new watch. We have a number of existing threads on watch suggestions. Take a look at them.

    I hope your brother enjoys whatever you get him. Watches are nice presents

    I do agree with Eeeb. See, This what the link is made for. I saw many answers for what I've been asking for before I asked them to the public. I love this page and its experts! :)

    I think you must narrow it down
    A dress watch, a chronograph, a watch to wear

    For certain you could get a nice 1950 (vintage) chronograph.

    Please. Don't tell the new members watches are investments. At best they are speculations - ones with a return rate far less than an index fund.
