    Hi! I have a nephew on the way. I want to buy him a watch the day he's born, and then give him that watch on his 18th birthday. So basically, I'm looking for a decent watch that I can put in my safe brand new, and in 18 years it will still work as if it were brand new. Any suggestions? I know...

    I promised a post (years ago) when I finally finished my degree and picked out a watch. I defended a PhD in biology a month ago in the fisheries science realm. Right after, my dad and I went and had some beers and walked to the local jeweler with full intent of buying an aquaracer. Maybe it...

    Hey guys! My younger brother is turning 18 this August, and so will, as is tradition, get a watch. And as the watch-dude of the family, my parents were nice enough to include me in this decision (I'm rather psyched to help in this process, especially as I can sit researching watches I can't...

    I've got about two months left until my wedding day and I've settled on getting my groomsmen watches as a gift. The reason it took me so long to decide on getting watches is because none of them are really watch guys. One of them is fairly attached to his Apple smart watch and the other three...

    Dear everybody, I am looking for the perfect watch to give to my husband to celebrate the birth of our first child. He is a watch-enthousiast but hasn't really started a collection yet. He always mentions the Breitling Navitimer when we discuss watches. I have done some "research" on my own and...

    My wife has been wanting a Cartier Large Tank Solo and I thought the basic model (no added bling) would be a nice 50th birthday gift (2/15). I started researching and realized how little I know about watches. I feel like I'm in over my head, can you help with a few basic questions: 1-Can you...

    I thought a few of you might appreciate my experiences trying to find a new watch for my girlfriend to surprise her for her birthday. Being a WIS we are often given the task (or volunteer!) to find watches suitable for other people. This all started when my girlfriend decided she wanted...

    My father is retiring soon and we need to get him a nice dress watch. He currently "obsesses" over the Baume and Mercier Clifton 10052. I have to admit, this may be my next luxury purchase when I can swing it. This is well above our budget, especially now that I have to replace the engine and...

    Hi Guys, I'm buying my father a pre-owned (95 %) Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date reference 11520. I thought it's a good company in his retirement days. I was worried about the pink dial color, is it too girly or it's fine? What do you guys think? On Rolex official web here the pink color is...

I'm really open to styles / brands, and am finding as I research I really have a lot to learn about watches. I was originally thinking Bulova, Citizen or Seiko, but found...

    So I asked a few days ago for some suggestions regarding watchs for groomsmen gifts. I think I have decided that I am going to go with the Orient Esteem Before I make any moves though. I just wanted to hear from some of you, that know way more about watches and how they are supposed to look...

    So this is a two part question - kind of a two birds one stone scenario. I posted the other day regarding groomsmen gifts. I have taken the advice of those who posted and identified a couple of options. I am curious about two things though. 1) Other than Island Watch, what other retailers are...
