I am a newbie when it comes to watches and have only started reading about watch specs and so on. All the watches I had were cheap/functional ones but I am really interested in getting my first "high-end/luxury" watch. However, I have only started work and cannot afford the Pateks/Breitlings, was wondering if the watch experts here could give me recommendations of really good swiss made automatic watches (36-40mm) up to £500 (~USD$800)?
I have read up on swiss movements, sapphire covers, automatic/quartz, jewels and there are so many choices! Looked at the hamilton khaki field/king and tissot visodate and found them really beautiful, but maybe the experts here would have a better recommendation
Looking for a watch that already comes with a leather strap (so i don't have to buy a separate strap) and is good to go for work and business (so maybe not the more sporty watches)
Looking forward to hearing your answers, thank you!
