Oh dear, bear with me as it's my Very First Post. I like watches, but had stopped wearing them a few years ago when the one I really liked fell off my wrist (jumped?) and I ran over it when I found out my sister was in a car accident. Dang sister was fine, watch was totaled. (ooh, first emoticon too, promise I'll not over-use). Never found one I liked as much and went with pretty traditional cheap watches, but started looking again recently.
I love old things and live in a 100+ y.o. house. I also love gold and recently declined the diamonds on my replica-vintage wedding band in favor of the much prettier 18K yellow gold. Given they'd be on the same hand and I'm a girl and this is important to me, I would love a gold-colored watch. I found a vintage Movado on a certain auction website and really really really like it, but it's awfully expensive and wondered if I could bother someone to give me some advice. Should I blow all my watch money on this one beauty? I know what the forum largely thinks of contemporary Movados, but there don't seem to be issues with their basic quality, especially vintage ones.
Do you all rely on vintage watches for your day-to-day lives? Am I nuts to go with this one in particular as well? I'll try to post the link to the aforementioned watch. Please don't buy it out from under me! (Unless you're my husband Steve, in which case, YAY!) Thanks, have loved lurking on the fora!
