Long time lurker and watch noobie; I had a question that I was hoping someone could answer.
For Christmas I received the FC- 245M4SZ7 Slimline, which I personally find to be very handsome. I was doing some research online to educate myself about the watch and saw the MSRP was around $1700 (no where near what was paid for it, I was assured.) Yet, very similar looking models, such as the M5S5 retail for half of that. Based on what I saw, I couldn't really discern the difference; anyone willing to take a minute to educate the new guy?
Also, I was told that if I wasn't fond of the watch the other option that had been selected for me was a Hamilton JazzMaster Thinomatic; an automatic as compared to a quartz. It was at a lower price point, so the gift giver was reluctant to bite. While I know the general differences (and have been reading up as much as I can concerning them) would people choose the slightly cheaper automatic over the quartz?
Thank you in advance!
