    Need help choosing a new watch!!

    Hi guys, I am a 17 year old and I am looking to buy a new watch.
    I currently have a Tissot prc 200(quartz) with a black dial and the black leather strap.
    I am interested to buy a watch that has a brown strap(or rather would look good with a brown strap) as I want to match them with my outfits. I have a budget of about S$600
    A watch that I currently have in mind is the Hamilton Khaki King Automatic - Hamilton Watch · King Auto

    Please give any feedback or recommendations. I really appreciate it thanks!

    Welcome!

    That Hamilton line is a well-liked watch around these parts. Not by me so much (the day is too much).

    I like the visodate

    The white dial model comes on a brown strap but it's not great quality - you should consider aftermarket straps: I just bought a good-quality Hirsch strap for mine for £25.

    I can't think of many watches that wouldn't look good on a brown strap so you have many options.

    The Hamilton is a good choice. I assume you are looking for an automatic and specifically military? Another couple that come to mind with these specs:

    Christopher Ward. Cheap. Pretty. Done.
    I've spent my money on women, whisky and watches. The rest I just wasted.

    Fair enough - variety is the spice of life!

    Amazon sales fulfilled by Amazon are fine - yes. Find a watch you like first then find a retailer.

    As above Christopher Ward is good value too.
