    Advice, Thoughts....

    Hi All,

    I have been a fan of the forum for some time, viewing it regularly when I plan on making a purchase. You provide excellent knowledge on sellers, when to buy as well as where to buy.


    I recently started looking for an automatic watch, something different and with a bit of character and distinctive. Which in turn led me to buying this;

    http://www.miansai.com/miansai-watches/all-bands/#264

    Sadly, on arrival, the piece had a very small face, the strap was cheap looking and I was very much underwhelmed. So it was returned. Although to add, the watch itself was not to my liking it was a very nice piece with some nice touches here and there.

    As I only have dress watches, Fossil, Diesel, few Alba Bullheads, a few vintage Seiko's that have no great value but are nice to wear.

    I am after something a bit more lasting, I have looked through the forum, but as with many I can be looking for hours, this website, that brand and generally want to order about 10 watches.

    The budget I have isn't Tag or TWC price, but I have a nice amount to spend should someone want to recommend?

    As always, thanks for the replies if I get any!

    Take a look at the Tissot, Hamilton or Seiko ranges as they tend to give a lot of bang for buck.

    Hamilton will almost certainly have something that will catch your eye in that price range.

    If I were you, I would look at Stowa. Stowa is tremendous quality for money. If you go for a Flieger, you get a historical connection as well. As mentioned, Hamilton would be a good place to look too.
