This will be my first watch purchase of any kind. I have 3 other watches right now that were all gifts through my high school and college days. Just cause I know we all love pics they are
An Orvis Dual Time (to keep both U.S. and U.K time while I lived in Scotland):
Fossil Speedway CH 2332:
Casio SGW100 -1V:
Nothing super special about the above watches (all well under $100) but they kept good time and were wonderful gifts from the various people who took the time (no pun intended) to purchase me with their hard earned money what I consider one of the best gift ideas on the planet (and practical), a watch. So in a way I have a simple start for a watch collection
I am a 26 year old young professional who his wife calls (a 46 year old man caught in a 26 year old body). Anyway for my first nice watch purchase I know I want it to be mechanical and no more than about $120 bucks (I know, but its my first purchase and we're going to ease into the fine time piece world haha). I will wear it pretty much daily with a shirt and tie.
I have been reading all the great threads about this topic on good inexpensive mechanical watches (and there are some WONDERFUL people on this forum who give great advice) and I feel the front runners for me are:
An Orient Sky Multieye (which I like with both the leather and metal bands)
or the Parnis Power Reserve:
I am open to other suggestions and have a very open mind. I think the two watches I have as front runners give a pretty good indication of the type of watch I am looking for.
Thanks for your time and look forward to hearing thoughts and suggestions.
