I am in the market for a quality watch as a gift for myself after finishing college and starting a career. I am looking for a piece that can be worn daily, either with a suit or dressed down. My budget is somewhere in the neighborhood of $2000.
1. I am only looking at new watches. No used/vintage pieces, sorry I realize that this takes out some great watches but I want to be the first owner.
2. I am looking for a watch with mechanical movement. No quartz pieces, as I own several.
3. I would prefer a piece that contains a chronograph, though it is not 100% necessary.
I look forward to your recommendations.
