    What is a "real" watch???

    Hey guys,

    What's the general consensus about what a "real" watch is?

    I'm not talking about real or fake, but I've see numerous posts saying "Just got my first 'real' watch."

    Does it have to do with cost? In-house movement?

    I'd classify it as something other than your typical mall fashion brands. A lot of people assign it to being "swiss" or maybe more expensive than normal, but a $100 seiko is very much a "real" watch to me. Now something from michael kors, or w/e other crap, no that isn't "real" to me.

    This has been covered before, but my definition is: not a fashion watch.

    Does it tell the time?

    Generally agreed, while still allowing differentiation from a clock. I guess a 65mm is borderline...

    The "real watch" label is affixed somewhere in between the euphoria of a new watch purchase and self-rationalization resulting from having possibly spent too much.

    A "real" watch I think is generally a level up in price than all the other watches you own.

    Matter of perspective.
