    Just graduated college

    Hi guys and happy new year, complete noob here. I just graduated college this past December and landed a pretty good job. I need a professional looking watch to add to my collection and to be used as mainly an everyday watch. I'm looking for a pretty big watch with a croco band, and LOVE the IWC portuguese automatic, and the perpetual calendar because it's a little bigger. With that being said, at this point in my life I definitely can't afford a watch like that. Sooo, if anyone has any suggestions on a big, similar watch that is only a few hundred dollars, please let me know. I've attached links with pictures for reference.
    Thanks in advance!

    All those sub dials are going to cost you! In your price range I'd probably start by looking at Seiko or Citizen quartz watches. This isn't exactly right and is probably too small, but to give you an idea:

    Are you specifically looking for a perpetual calendar? I find the dials on most perpetual calendar chronos in your price range to be far too cluttered. If you're interested in buying a watch that looks like a Portuguese, there's a company called Parnis that makes watches with similar designs. Try searching in the "Affordables" sub-form; you should find a lot of information there.

    Hello, welcome, and congratulations. The real world sucks.

    Take a look at Damasko. You might be able to find what you're looking for. If not, try Hamilton. Very high quality watches at a reasonable price.
