I am new here and Ive spent a few hours browsing and reviewing stickies over the past few weeks. All great stuff and a great community! Im not the most fashionable individual but I have always been drawn to watches and am looking to get a new watch. Turns out im not alone, people notice watches and are attracted to them; I just got back from Vegas and was called out by several people for not wearing a nice watch (being a single dude hearing that from two females hurt my ego!)
So, all that being said, Im 27 y/o and I only own a G-shock. I have been in phone sales phone sales for 6 years , office attire has always been pretty casual and I never felt obligated to a nice time piece.
I literally just started my own company as of this month and my platform will now be telephone and in person. My business will be regional compared to nationwide and I will be working with clients in my office but also trying to develop relationships with developers and Realtor's. Its an extremely competitive business and I am always looking for an edge up and appearance is of the most important. The new business and negative feedback from the chicks in Vegas have acted as a catalyst to get a new watch! Id like to be a bit more strategic compared to the last time I bought a watch (was 20 y/o dumb kid making stupid good money and dropped 10k on a Breitling which I later sold for half that. Even thinking back frustrates me!).
I could really use everyones help! Ive done some research and found a few watches and am having trouble making a decision. I would greatly appreciate your feedback on which watch you like the best BUT I am also open to other suggestions from those who are more in the know!
Here is what im looking for (also below are a few watches I would like your guys opinion on):
- Budget of $1500. Starting a business limits what I can spend, not to mention some of the watches I liked were only in the 500 range.
- Good starter/every day watch. I dont have a rotation yet, so something durable.
- I want something that is going to stand out, something on the flashier side
- Something with a large face
- Im ok with being adventurous. Ive been attracted to some rose gold watches, watches with blue faces, etc-At the same point, I want a watch that matches well with most clothing
- At the same time, im also looking for something that matches well with most clothing
- I also am looking for a metal bracelet vs leather strap
PRC 200 Quartz Chronograph Men's Watch with Stainless Steel Bracelet:
I love the lay out of the watch, clean, stylish and classy. I like the roman numeral design and markings on the face. My concern is the white might be a little subtle and pop
PRS 200 Men's Blue Quartz Sport watch
This is a watch that really took me by surprise because from a screen shot it only looks ok. Im not a big fan of the dial but I LOVE the blue face. I also really like the contrast of having the 3 silver gauges in the face, gives it that pop im looking for. Im not sure if blue faces are acceptable with everyday occasion or if its more of a support watch you wear in certain circumstances/outfits. The video below is what really caught my eye and caused me to consider this watch... Picture doesnt do it justice
PRC 200 Men's Silver Chronograph Quartz Sport Watch
Another amazingly beautiful watch and I feel the safest bet (which i am ok with). Again, perfect face with a clean and classy look. Silver is an attractive color in general and that goes a long way with this particular watch. I feel it looks much more appealing than the prs 200 from a photo, mostly because I think the lack of dial translates better. Another watch where i was very impressed with the video. This was the leader coming into the club house but now I really am torn.
thanks so much for the help! I am all ears and all suggestions are welcome. Please let me know of the 3 watches which you like the best. part of me was thinking I might get 2 of the tissots because 2 are still in my range. however, if there are other watches you think might suite my needs better please dont hesitate to mention them!
