    I can't understand why I feel like I need a new watch

    Hi all, first of all I would like to thank you for making this wonderful forum living, and for making me feel like I'm not totally crazy being so obsessed with watches.
    Now, even if a recently added 2 watches to my collection, I have some plus money in my pocket, and instead of using it wisely, I'm thinking of a new watch.
    So since I know you won't dissuade me, I ask you an advice. I'm considering buying a new grab and go - no need to pay too much attention to - watch
    Budget is around 600 dollars, if less it's better
    Some watches i'm considering (for some I have to be lucky to stay in the budget)
    A Seiko bullhead 6138-0040
    A Laco flieger b
    An aristo b-uhr
    A junghans max Bill (or another this style)
    A Fortis marinemaster super compressor
    A Hamilton Ventura
    A Hamilton pan europ
    A bronze watch
    Nomos and Stowa (but these are out of budget I guess)
    Obviously no problem with pre owned and vintage
    Preferably a mechanical but if it's a good deal a quartz could do it too
    I generally do care about the "historical importance" of a watch
    I hope in your wise suggestions to clarify this mess :)

    Thank you!

    Hamilton Pan Europ

    If not a Citizen Signature Grand Touring, Seiko Cocktail Time, an Orient Star... depends on what style you're looking for.

    This is bronze, black (white too) minimalistic almost bauhaus, kinda flieger like dial, just a bit over the budget:

    "Now, even if a recently added 2 watches to my collection, I have some plus money in my pocket, and instead of using it wisely, I'm thinking of a new watch."

    We could start a 12-step group, only nobody is fit to be a sponsor.

    I vote Hamilton Ventura, but one of the originals if you can swing it.

    That is a long list of varied styles from dress to pilot to diver. I wouldn't even begin to know where to start.
    Bulova> 96B251. Casio> 5600E. Damasko> DS30. GrandSeiko> SBGH205. Rolex> 114060, 16710. Seiko> SARB017, SARB033, SBDX017, SLA017.

    IMO, a true grab and go is any of the watches in the Citizen Eco-Drive Atomic series, or anything quartz really; but the Eco-Drive Atomics are really outstanding.

    Anything mechanical is too much hassle to be a G&G. You either have to keep one on a winder or have to wind it and adjust it constantly, both time and date.

    Yes that's true for the majority, well let's say "slightly" grab and go, it's a pleasure for me to wind or set the time
    @titov thank you I didn't know this brand

    Don't try to understand the need, just order a Pan Europ and all your cares will be over.

    I'd go for a nice quartz for no worries myself...

    I would personally go for the Nomos, regardless if it's not in your budget. Save. It will be worth it more than any hamilton watches. Or go vintage. You can get great watches if you know what your looking for.
