I have been lurking these forums for around a month now. I have been fascinated by some posts especially the whole restoration page that exists will all the tools of the trade, a marvellous hobby.
Anyway I cannot really afford a high end watch. I am returning home for a wedding from Sydney and have been looking around but it seems my tastes outgrow my wallet.
Generally I am after a lighter brown leather strapped watch, classic sort of look. Plain white face. Much to my surprise so few seem to exist, at least under $1,000. The first true watch I loved was by Georg Jensen at $1,500 but that is in the pipe line for now.
I am very interested in this:
The strap is a little dark but I like the overall look. The website has many other options but what are the chances of it being a fake?
The only store to stock this in the City (Sydney CBD) is under the Galleries (for those who know the area) and they want $580 – the actual Huge Boss website was getting rid of their stock and it was around $450. I definitely don't fancy paying either for what you guys refer to as a 'fashion watch'.
I would appreciate any advice or suggestions.
