Hi all -
I just joined the forum because I decided to buy a watch. I've always admired the classic designs of watches like a Mondaine, old Panerais, military basic look...classic, clean, simple designs. I've never worn one, though, as I found them uncomfortable. I haven't tried one on in 20 years, though, and now I'm married and wear a ring and enjoy it, so I thought a nice watch to add on would suit my new style. The spark here by spotting some Skagens in a shop when I passed through Copenhagen last year and liked their minimal design and thin cases.
I know Midtown NYC has tons of watch shops, but I'm wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a watch noob to go in, someplace with patient salespeople who aren't going to make a big buck off me (now, but if I get hooked). Again, Skagen also appeals because their price range is good for someone who's not touched a watch since he was a kid.
Thanks for any and all advice.
