    Classy/dressy watch for $500 +/- $50

    Guys, I'm fairly new to quality watches. What would be a good watch brand to get. I'm looking at this one, I love the style and have heard good things. This gives you an idea of the style im looking for. Thanks!

    The GV is a very unique wrist watch. Being in your pirce bracket go for it, you will not find something similar.
    Kind regards

    I can't think of another watch that looks like that. It is not my cup of horological tea, but diversity in our likes is what makes the hobby interesting. It is within your budget and you apparently like it so why look any further? Just press the buy button and enjoy!

    There are a lot of threads here and on Affordables covering the 500 USD price range. Just flick through.
    Kind regards

    Yep, but out of the two listed, I'd go for the Hamilton!

    I had a Girondolo, and sold it relatively quickly - I found telling time on it to be challending, and since that's the first role of a watch ultimately I was unhappy. I would also look on eBay and other sites to get a sense of secondhand value - if you buy it and don't like it I don't think you'll be able to get that $ back.

    I would also look at Mido, Seiko, Hamilton, and Oris, to name a few brands, both on watch sites (Amazon has decent prices, but you may be able to find it for less at reputable grey-market dealers) and on the sales forum here - I've had very good luck in the secondary market on the watch fora. You might also try Chinese or Russian brands, including Poljot, Orient, Seagull and others - Google is your friend here.

    Best regards and best of luck,
    Adam

    That thing is $3,300 off. I'd buy, sell it for 5 times what you paid, then buy the Hamilton.
