I am a 21-year-old and I will be graduating college in a couple months. My parents have graciously offered to buy me a watch as a graduation present and I was hoping for some advice on which watch will best serve me in my life and career. I will be heading to graduate school and then medical school after college, so this will be pretty much it for me for the next decade.
My budget is about max $3500 and I need a watch which is durable, versatile (for formal and causal wear), and maybe most importantly, will not raise any eyebrows from my colleagues or advisors. I’m going into medicine and research to help patients and wearing an ostentatious watch doesn’t send a very good message at my age.
One watch which I am partially drawn to is the Omega Speedmaster. Science is a big part of my life and having that connection to NASA is incredibly appealing. Is that a safe choice for me? For those who have experience with the watch, how well does it it fit my criteria?
Thank you very much for your help! I really appreciate it.
