Hello, all! I just started looking into the watch-making industry yesterday and came upon this forum. My name is Alvin and I am a proud, new member of watchuseek!!
I have been looking into watches for quite some time now and I would like some information/advice. First, what are the pros and cons of watches with an open back? I personally find those types of backs very attractive, but I worry that they are not as dustproof and/or waterproof as watches with closed backs.
Second, what would you guys recommend for my first "luxury" watch? I have worn many watches before, and am currently using a G-Shock T_T
But I am looking for a dress watch that is mechanical or automatic, is mainly constructed with a steel/titanium band, and has a sapphire crystal display.
I'm going for that "classy business executive" look. I prefer watches with moderately large cases, but I am open to suggestions!!
The most I can spend at this moment on this watch is $200, so please give me some suggestions! I look forward to all of your comments!!
