    New to the watch game, looking for brands in the £400-£1,000 mark

    I'm in the market for my first proper watch, and for my first watch I don't want to spend anything over £1,000/$1,700. Can you point me in the direction of reputable brands with a good selection in this price range? I'm clueless when it comes to brands, all I've been doing is Googling 'Automatic watches under £1,000'

    Thanks for the quick replies guys, I'll have a gander now! If I may ask another question, what is reputable online retailer of watches with a good selection? Preferably with these brands available

    Unless youre really bent on buying new. Checkout the sales forums. Its a really good way to stretch your budget. Just do your due diligence
