Hello everybody. I am extremely new to the watch community although my love for watches has been a growing thing. I developed an interest for watches around my 14th birthday when I bought my first: a Seiko 5 Sports. Ever since my interest has manifested. I find the intricacy of the movements and craftsmanship very appealing. Now im no watch connoisseur but I have done my research into brands, movements and history; and by no means have I even scratched the surface!
Now down to my question. I have been saving up and I think id like to invest in my first low-end luxury watch, Id like to keep my budget around the £2000 ($3200) mark so anything like an AP or Patek is completely out of the question. Unlike most though, I am not looking for an investment, im looking for something I can enjoy. Something I can say when I am older: "I wore this when I was 20". I have a few preferences but nothing that narrows down my options.
I would like:
-A skeleton cased back
-Something Automatic or Manual
-Nothing with too much going on on the dial, ie a Breitling (Not very fond of them)
-A sweeping hand would also be nice but not essential
My two initial choices are:
The Omega Speedmaster Pro 'Moonwatch'
And the Longines Master
I welcome any criticisms and suggestions as I have a lot to learn still. Thank you for reading!
