I just started getting into watches and love this forum.
How does the forum in general view designer watches like Emporio Armani, Nautica, Kenneth Cole, etc. How well made are they compared to Seiko, Citizen, etc. How respected are they among WIS? Bang for the buck size would you be better off with a comparably priced Seiko?
Just wondering to me it seems like most of their designs are fancier or shall I say gaudy than the Japanese brands like Orient, Citizen,etc and I'm not into that. But some designs seem pretty subdued also which is more what I look for in a watch. Just wondering the overall quality and they are viewed.
