    "First" Watch for a young man

    Hi everyone, first trend on the website, but I'm really enjoying it! Well I am very young, but I have always enjoyed watches, but now I have enough money to buy my first good watch(about 500 us dollars). I am not very tall (1,72m or 5 feet and 7,7 inches) I have small wrist and I am thin. I can't wear big watches neither big bands. The watch that I 'm looking for is to be used everyday but still being able to wear at a dinner with friends, wearing jeans and a shirt. I am a bit afraid of metal bands because they can be too heavy for my body( I 'm also very white), but a special one that is not very rough would be great. Another thing is that I don't like rubber bands. I really appreciate all the answers, because I am really lost, but I want to buy the first one of my collection as soon as possible.

    Thank you very much for your help!

    Check out the Tissot prc200 automatic. Excellent value. Sapphire crystal, 200m wr. Display caseback. Comes in different colors and straps. A perfect first watch for everyday.

    I think this or another Sistem 51 watch would be perfect for you.

    I'm not really sure how "white" you are has anything to do with anything? If your wrists are very small as you suggest, check out Frederique Contstant Junior Collection. You can get an automatic on Amazon for $599. Check this link out: Amazon.com: Frederique Constant Men's FC-303B4B26 Junior Black Dial Watch: Frederique Constant: Watches

    I think OP is saying that he would prefer steel watches over gold tone. I know quite a few people afraid to try gold tone jewellery for fears it won't suit their skin colour. That's just how I interpreted it anyway.

    OP, welcome to the forums! Have you considered something vintage? You can get a steel vintage watches from one of the big names like Longines, Oris, Omega, and King Seiko in nice condition for under $500. They will also be smaller than most contemporary watches, which would suit your smaller frame.
    Current Collection:
    Rotary, Adina, Emporio Armani, Loyal, Swatch, Ingersoll, Cyma and others...

    The Wanted List:
    Citizen NB0030-01A

    Realistically Achievable Grails:
    Breguet 5817 Marine Big Date
    Grand Seiko STGR003

    Holy Grails:
    Breguet 5617 Perpetual Calendar Chronograph

    I would second the Frederique Constant, Tissot and Hamilton suggestions.

    Also maybe look at Raymond Weil?
    Omega - Aqua Terra 8500
    Frederique Constant - Slimline Moonphase Manufacture
    C Ward - C60 Trident-Pro
