Hi guys, so I am expanding my collection (currently own a hamilton jazzmaster) to a chronograph watch. These have always been something of a fascination to me and I am excited to start the search for my second watch.
However, I know nothing about the actual chronograph portion/what I need to look for. My hamilton is automatic and I love is, is that what is preferred in the chronograph world, or is quartz okay. Furthermore, I want this watch to be less of a "dress" watch than the jazzmaster. I want reliable lum (the hamilton's lum is garbage), but still would like to keep a sapphire crystal as I am a little careless on the occasion. A hardex will not be the end of me, but I would prefer a higher quality glass.
If you guys have any suggestions of some good chronographs under $400 ish, I would love to see them/do more research. I tried to look, but there are just too many choices. Not sure whether I want a black face or a white face, my hamilton has a white face, I might want to switch it up to a black!
