    I know huge chunky watches are de rigueur for men. And don't get me wrong, I love a me a stainless diver with a nice bezel. But I have been wearing this lately. This Movado was at the time of purchase the thinnest watch you could buy. It's not to wear with a suit, since it doesn't snag on your cuffs.

    No pilots, no chronographs, no odd-sized lugs.

    Date, strong, lume...a watch that can do anything, be dressed up or down.
    Recently came across this little number:



    Also quite attractive.

    Second the nomination. Looking as I type this at my Seamaster Aqua Terra Chronograph. Sweet. Mmmmm, mmmm, mmmmm.

    Stopped by the local Tourneau to see what they had in the used dept. Saw this, didn't bother asking for a price point:




    Good thing I didn't, since they go for about 10K used.

    Yessir. Way out of my price bracket, but man was it beautiful. Giant, too. I'm tentatively in the watch market, but at a $1500 or less price point. These Stowa Fliegers look really good, especially for the price.

    Aquatimer from I'm not sure when...a few years ago? Ref# 354807. Much better looking that current ATs, but only good to 1000m...which is more than I'd ever need.

    I'm running a Sector chrono with a quartz movement. It's been bomber for a number of years. I'm a set it and forget it kind of guy- how often are you guys having to reset your auto's? The Seiko level autos seems interesting, but I'm curious about the time loss in the movement.

    The Seiko I got from Sir Musgrave is b@!!s on accurate! It runs a smidge slow and I have to adjust time once every two weeks and that is out of habit not necessity. The Japanese have an amazing product in that watch. FWIIW my Seamaster is much the same and talk about tough??? Both watches get no quarter, I wear them for all activities with exception of wrenching on automobiles when they go into my pocket.

    I haven't tested it in a while but my Explorer II gains only 20 to 25 seconds over a month, which is pretty freaky accurate for a watch that is worn daily and has not been serviced in 10 years. I only reset the thing when adjusting the date at the end of the month. I'll conduct a little test next time I reset. Will be interesting to see what kind of accuracy I get before and after service, planned for this Fall.

    I don't mind a fast watch.

    This is a topic that I have become recently fascinated with, having friends who have worked at Vacheron Constantin and Franck Muller, and learning about the insane skill that goes towards building one of those time pieces.

    Instead of buying a custom frame, I would like to put that money towards a used or new watch. I would like to spend at most around $1,500, but if it is really worth it, $2,000.

    Unlike with bicycles I have no idea where to start. I don't own any watches now, and the only reason I would like to buy one is that I recently became a dad, and I want to give it to my son when he is old enough. Of course I would use the watch until then...

    From time to time I go to formal government dinners and I do wish to show up with something other than my Polar HR monitor.

    I prefer rectangular shaped watches over circular ones.

    Can you help me towards a reasonable purchase? I feel like such a newbie!!!!

    Thank you for the link! I can't believe how deep this world goes. All the new terminology, companies...

    The Monaco is beautiful. I have a lot of studying to do on this subject.

    Yash,

    The first two that come to mind are the Monacos (above) and the Bell and Ross watches (though they are super expensive). Id check out the forums at watchuseek.com also.

    The Bell and Ross watches are really interesting, especially the aviation collection. I am not even sure what the Red Radar model does. Very rugged looking. Interesting that the overall shape is square but the face is circular.
