    New to watches, opinion, suggestions wanted

    Hello! I'm new to watches and I would really appreciate any input you all have about any of the watches I list or watches you think I should consider. I really desire an automatic watch so I would prefer to exclude the others (quartz etc.)
    I only want to spend around the ballpark of $500. I prefer a metal bracelet.

    Watches of interest are:

    Seiko Sarb035 Name:  maxresdefault.jpg
Views: 46
Size:  378.5 KB

    Hamilton H39515154 Name:  maxresdefault (1).jpg
Views: 42
Size:  89.3 KB


    So far these are the ones I really really like but I have a hard time choosing between. I'm leaning towards the Hamilton. I am not 100% familiar with both brands movements/brand reputations. Any advice or input would be greatly appreciated! I'm also open to other watches of course so list them below. Help me make a decision, I'm too unfamiliar with the watch world to make a confident one.

    Seiko is a good choice.

    I would go with the Hamilton, you'll be getting a swiss movement. Seikos are indeed nice, but for the price point, you can get the swiss cred.

    I like the applied indices on the Seiko much better than the painted numerals on the Hamilton.

    I prefer the Hamilton, I had never seen it before and it looks really nice.

    I’d say the Seiko is the nicer of the two. It’s not inferior to a Hamilton in any way. Swiss Cred doesn’t mean much to me as I personally think Germans make the best watches for my tastes and any Seiko is a killer value, also 100% made in house. Just a personal opinion, both would be excellent watches.

    Thanks for the post! I was leaning towards the Hamilton because of the name value (on top of its beauty) but the seiko is definitely a beauty

    You're looking at two good brands in that price range.

    Out of those two specific models, I'd choose the Seiko. It's a design you could wear pretty much anywhere, all the time. The Hamilton is a little too dressy to be an ideal all-rounder.
