    I'm still looking for my first watch after two years of creeping on countless forums and youtube channels. I've recently found the "glycine bienne" and a vintage "seiko skyliner" who both look perfect! Even though they look perfect on pictures they both have their problems. I'm afraid the...

    Hi! I really like the look of vintage 60s watches and am currently looking for my first watch. I do however feel hesitant to a vintage piece being my first watch and daily wearer at that. So I turn to you guys, are there any affordable (about $500 max, but wouldn't complain if it's lower)...

    Hi! I am 20 years old and got into stuff like this website and countless watch channels on youtube when I first started looking for a watch about two years ago. Having spent an alarming amount of time on forums, videos, chrono 24 etc to find the perfect watch for me I still have nothing to show...

    I think most people have a certain watch style that they associate with their first watch and buy future watches accordingly. Just wanna see with what watch people started their journey.

    It's easy to get nostalgic during these challenging, unprecedented times. So when I opened up the watch box this weekend, I ended up wearing the automatic that "started it all" for me: This Orient Mako with blue dial was my first automatic watch. I had to search my e-mail archives to find...

    Hi everyone :cool: Most of us here are passionate or at least very interested in watches and I think it would be interesting to see what your very first watch was back in the days, so please feel free to share some images or cool stories about where it all started. For me, it all started with...

    I had decided I wanted a watch but had no clue what or where to begin. One day I'm sitting in a meeting and from under a vendors dress shirt I get a glimpse of a watch. Over the course of the meeting the watch plays hide and seek with me and every time I see it I'm more convinced it's the watch...

    Hello! I (i'm still a student) am looking into buying myself a first proper watch and I saw a CERTINA DS-PODIUM AUTOMATIC with leather strap with ref. number: C001.407.16.057.00, for a 300€ in a watch store, where I used to work. My question is, is this watch worth buying, are Certina watches...

    Somewhere out there, there is a watch that I'm going to say "that's the one!".... help me find it!

    Hi There! The sell-off continues as I came across this little quartz fashion watch in some boxes in the garage. It was a white elephant gift from an office party some years back. Anyway, it's brand new in its tin - never worn. Just needs a battery, and it's off and running again. I'm asking...

    Just curious what people's opinions are on this topic. My watch in question isn't anything special, other than being my first mechanical watch. Might be time to part with this one and upgrade to a mechanical chronograph.

    This is my first watch, bought when I was around 24 years old. I didn't anything about watches, then. I just bought it because it was beautiful. I was a borderline alcoholic for about a decade. I'll never remember what this poor piece has seen. It's still tickin', though. I don't drink very...

    I recently landed my first job and am hoping to pick up a watch to celebrate. I am a current college student and am just starting to get into watches! My budget is about 1000 (but hopefully I will find something for less!) Some specifics I'm looking for: -Metal strap (all my watches in my...

    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...

    Hi, I am looking to buy my first automatic watch. I want to spent up to 400 Euros (450 USD) on it. I'm not really into microbrands and usually prefer Swiss/German watches over Japanese ones. Obviously want an automatic, and should be versatile. I am currently considering the following pieces...
  16. 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...

    First luxury diver watch - PO 8500 42mm vs SuperOcean II 42mm (2015) I need your wise opinions for these two timepieces that I narrowed my selection from. I have a 6.7", fairly flat wrist. Also, I am relatively young among the forum members here - 18 years old. I know this might seem a little...

    This is my first post, and I need some advice. I've only had fossil watches all my life, and a few months ago my girlfriend purchased me a automatic fossil grant, and I fell in love with it. I loved that a small portion of the watch was skeleton to see the components working yet the face was...
