    Brand new -- just got the watch bug

    Hi, My wife recently found a beautiful Victorinox for only $10 at the thrift store and that has triggered watch fever in our household. I've impulsively picked up two inexpensive used quartz Tissot PR50s on Ebay and was relieved when they arrived looking better than the Ebay photos, in working order, and my jeweler says they are authentic.

    I'm now more soberly researching watches and have my eye on some Hamilton and Tissot automatics, but I may pick up a Seiko and Citizen for daily use.

    I've already learned a lot on this forum and I look forward to learning more (and eventually contributing).

    thanks,
    Robert

    Welcome to the world of watches. It only gets more expensive the deeper you go. I'd suggest having someone hide your wallet from you.

    Buy a Seiko SKX or Turtle, pick a strapcode bracelet (jubilee, president, oyster) Run away from here and never look back. You’ll probably have the coolest watch around anyone you know and save a fortune! Haha. Welcome :)
