I'm relatively new to watch collecting. After a divorce I find I am finally able to explore my own interests and start buying timepieces which is something I have been interested in for some time. My first watch was a Hamilton Khaki King II. That was followed by an Orient Blue Ray for a work watch as I work outdoors. Next came a Mido Multifort Limited Edition Titanium which I bought in Switzerland and finally an Oris Williams Skeleton which I bought second hand in excellent condition.
Now my dilemma: I hope to get to an Omega or Breitling. Those two represent the top of my eventual budget at the low end of their respective ranges. However, there is a local shop which currently has a pre-owned mint condition Oris Titan C Small Second Titanium for $800. It even still has the plastic on the band and case back. I know he has the inner scuba head box but need to ask about the outer and papers. I could probably get him down a few bucks more as well. That being said, would I be better off taking that money and throwing it into an account and then add to it toward an Omega or Breitling?
Advice, as always, is appreciated - especially from those more seasoned than myself!
