My stepfather asked me to pick out a watch as a gift for helping him run his business since my mom passed a few months back. He asked if I could keep it under $1000, I said of course and would like to keep it under $600. Basically looking for something elegant, that fits a medium sized wrist well, and is at least 90ft water resistant.
• Option 1: Bulova Curv (amazon photo doesn't do it justice)
My wife had Kay cash, so I visited their store. They had a lot of nice Citizen and Boluva watches. Out of all of them I tried one stood way above the rest. The Bulova curv. It easily had the best feel, and look. With $200 Kay cash, 25% off Boluva/Citizen watches, it brought it down to $575 with tax. This included a lifetime plan for battery changes. I bought it, however can return it within 30 days.
• Option 2: Citizen Eco-Drive Titanium At4010-50e
I then looked up other watches on Amazon. The one thing I wish the Curv had was a date. So after a lot of research I found this feature rich watch that is highly praised. It is also $200 cheaper @$400 with tax. Really like the automatic time correction. While this watch looks great, the Curv scores just a bit higher in the looks department. No idea if it will feel as good.
So... yeah. What do you think the best watch for me is?
