Great forum, and a great help to new watch enthusiasts who don't know a whole lot about watches (yet)! :)
Anyway, to get to the point. I am about to graduate and am allowed to pick a nice watch as graduation present. Price is not really an issue (I'd say upto 12k euros or so is OK.)
The type of watch I would like should be 1) a classic, which I can still wear with pride when I'm 50; but 2) also sportive/'young', and suitable for a 25-year old.
The models I am currently considering are:
IWC portuguese yacht club chronograph (in white, or possible in black)
IWC portuguese automatic
(However, I just read -on these forums- that this model tends to run fast (as in 20+ seconds per day!).)
Basically my questions are:
1) Would any of you have suggestions for other similar watches (that are 'classic' and 'sportive'/'young')?
2) Which one would you opt for when having to choose between the portuguese yacht club and automatic watches? (also, what color -black or white- would you choose?)
Looking very much forward to your suggestions and insights!
All thoughts are appreciated :)
