I've never really worn a watch, but as an adult, I'm thinking it's about time. Checking the cell phone for the time is very tacky.
Anyway, I'm looking for my first watch. I want something of quality as it will be my only watch and hope to have it for a long time. My budget is probably up to around $2000.
I'm looking for a watch that can go both casual and with the occasional suit. I don;t dress for work, so 90% of the time this will be a jeans/shirt watch or weekender. I alos enjoy the outdoors, so a watch that I could wear in the woods without worry would also be a plus. I seem to be drawn towards chronographs in terms of face style, but not stuck on it. I've tried both stainless and leather straps - for some reason leather seems more natural on me ( maybe it's because I've never worn a watch and the stainless really draws attention to my wrist). As to size, I have a smallish wrist, so don;t want a humungous face nor a tiny one.
The tough part is that there are so many watches out there. If anyone wants to help me narrow my search to 5-10 that would be a huge help.
PS - lesser known/quality brands are always of interest
