I'm 24 years old, and I haven't worn a watch since my obligatory Fossil back in high school. My new interest in watches was first piqued by this article I read last week.
Autodromo Monoposto Watches put Vintage Tachometers on Your Wrist
Very cool designs that the gearhead inside me loves, although out of my price range. Now, I've been looking around the past several days and have found a few designs that I really like. I most definitely want an automatic movement. The clear back with the rotor and ratchet/clutch mechanism......just too cool for me not to own! As you might have guessed, I also enjoy the look of a skeleton watch. Now, I am a car nut through-and-through and would love to have a watch with a dial inspired by something such as the Lamborghini Miura, although there doesn't seem to be much of a market for that; especially for $250 or less.
I was looking at Stuhrling watches until I read a few horror stories on here about them. However, I've picked out 3 designs that I really like and I was hoping someone might be able to advise me how to best spend my money in this price range for something similar in design and, perhaps, more robust and respected in build quality.
I really like the red/carbon fiber combo on the 2nd watch. Not a huge fan of the color on the third choice but the physical design is pretty interesting.
Thanks for the reading material so far guys. Hopefully, I can become more educated on these things here before I lay down some cash for one.
