    Affordable watches
    So last summer, I asked your opinions for a first watch before I even knew if I'd enjoy wearing a watch. I realized this, and instead of dropping significant coin on a watch that I wasn't even sure I'd like, I decided to take a step back and get something cheap. As such, I picked this up on...

  8. Please help me find my first watch. Ronin Rotomatic MK ii or a $400 Sinn 556i equivalent.

    WTB - Wanted to Buy
    I have been looking for a watch for a couple weeks and have it narrowed down to a Sinn 556i, which I cannot really afford. The Ronin Rotomatic MK II is my compromise. I would buy a Sinn 556i for $400, but I realize that is extremely unreasonable. So Ronin Rotomatic it is. I am open to...

    I'm curious to know if you guys still have your first auto watch after becoming a WIS? Even if you've moved on to better ones, you've been reluctant to sell it or you never kept it for that long anyway?
