    New and in need of advice..

    I recently started a collection of 6 pieces for every occasion/situation. I have 3 but stuck on where to go next. Since I'm really new I don't really know how each watch will fit my needs/style and go with outfits etc. Don't want to waste money so want to keep each around $ 100 till I know exactly what I want before purchasing something more costly.

    1st purchase was the CASIO 5610. PROS Love it, super retro has everything i need in a watch plus more and it got me into more watches. CONS not that versatile and a bit small for me 6'5", 255lb, 7.5 inch wrist.

    LUCIEN PICCARD MOONPHASE silver dial 40016-02s. PROS Awesome, super versatile, full calendar and moonphase are features i really like, perfect size 44mm. CONS Lume on hands only kinda pointless and day date too small almost impossible to read.

    3rd ORIENT ESTEEM black dial FDB08004B0 PROS Stunning watch, 41mm looks perfect on me for dress watch size. CONS no day date it drives me nuts that I don't have that but of course it wouldn't look as stunning with it so I just can't wear as much as I would like.

    Looking at...

    Chronograph would like to see if I like this or use it
    Different colors Blue Dial/Green bezel etc...
    Dive watches?? not sure if I would like this style

    Was thinking my next purchase might be the Timex fairfeild Chrono but it is pretty similar to the LP so....or maybe I'm going in the wrong direction totally any advice appreciated thanks.

    Here are some Seikos and a Certina that are both near $100 you could try

    Welcome to WUS! Hard to go wrong with Orient assuming you can get by without a date complication. I felt the same way thirty years ago when I bought my first watch that didn't have a date window. But in the long run it actually helped me to keep track of the date without having to use the mechanical the crutch. For $100, it may be an experiment worth trying.

    Btw, you may have better luck getting input by posting on the "Affordables" sub-forum, Affordable watches

    I was just going to say that Seiko chronographs can be found for ~ $100 (City74 beat me to it). You might want to hang out some in the affordables section of the forum. Join the Bargain thread to learn where to look for Seiko chronograph deals.
