I’ve been reading the forums for a while but just joined recently - lots of great info and knowledge here. Thought I’d say hello and share my current rotation. I’ve been on a bit of a buying spree for the past year or so, and these are the pieces that I’ve bonded with the most. Nothing fancy here, have been going primarily for “quality on a budget” as I’m still searching for my style, and I’m trying to limit my collection to 4-5 watches that I really enjoy. Looking to add a Sub or Explorer-style watch next. I can’t justify the price tag for a Rolex, so I’ve been eyeing Ginault and mkII, but I’m open to suggestions from those more experienced than myself. Doesn’t have to be an homage, but I do really like those dials and case shapes. Looking for something classic-looking, 38-40mm, relatively slim, no arabic markers, on a bracelet. I do appreciate brand prestige, but quality vs cost is my main focus here - I’d like to buy new, keep cost under $2000, and end up with something well-built that I’m proud to wear.
Appreciate any input, greetings and glad to join the community!
