    Looking for my first 'proper' watch for my wedding help!

    Hey guys, I have been following threads and using the forum for information gathering before I 'spoil' myself with a watch for my wedding day and to wear on honeymoon.

    At first I was thinking a skeleton style watch, but now I'm not sure. A classical style Bulova also looks nice, nice faces and very stylish.

    But mentioned in another thread is the Accurist GMT320W. It ticks the leather strap that I prefer, and it looks good which from what I gather is important! 😊

    Two questions really, one will I be getting the bang for my buck that I'm looking for. And two, its quite important to me that I will be able to pass it on to my son (he's 16 now) at some point, am I looking at a watch to 'last a lifetime'.

    Or a recommendation perhaps. I notice you guys like recommending different watches. 😛

    Thanks for replying, I suppose the Accurist at £325 is very much 'top end'. But I'm open to suggestions in either a skeleton or classic style too.

    I like Citizen. They have a lot of options.

    ^ SARB065 is a good shout. Really any Seiko SARB is always going to be highly recommended at this price.

    Tissot Visodate - if you could stretch to £395.

    SARB033 or SARB035. The only difference is the dial color on these two. If your wrist is over 7in, you would have to change the strap.

    At that budget the best watches would be Citizen or Seiko. As long as you don't wear a giant diver while daydreaming about being Bond in your tux, you'll do fine. Also don't listen to anyone here that tell you to buy a giant diver to wear in your tux.

    I think some Hamiltons can be bought for less than that, though I don't know after all the taxes and fees what it will be. They look nice, but I don't know too much about them myself (one is coming in the mail for me in a few days, but it's not a dress watch).

    I'm not sure you're going to find much "last a lifetime" watches at this level though, especially in the dress watch category. Bulova or Skagen would be a bit off the beaten path.
