Wise words.hourlyrage said:I think the best advice I can give you is to trust yourself and collect pieces you love. Don't base your collection on what others tell you to buy otherwise it is not really your collection is it.You say you don't have the money to buy high quality but high quality doesn't always have to be exspensive. There are quite a few companies that offer good quality for a good price.If you shop wisely you can get some nice pieces some of which are Swiss Made. Take a look at companies like Hamilton,Tissot and Steinhart all make very good quality watches at a good value. I also would encourage you to look at the preowned market here and at other forums,you can find a piece that you would not consider buying new at a deeply dicounted price. I hope this helps.
