I am very new to watch collecting and would really appreciate your guys help!
Ever since I was a little kid I collected watches (mostly cheap rubber and plastic / Fossil watches).
However, I am now 23 and working full time and want to "step up my game".
Currently, I have:
+ Bulova 98E102 Marine Star Diamond Case Bracelet Mother of Pearl Dial Watch Two Tone Stainless Steel (Black / Rose Gold, Pearl Face)
+ Seiko SWW210 Two Tone Stainless Steel (Silver / Gold, Black Face) [an older watch]
+ Nixon 51-30 Tide Stainless Steel (All Gold)
I am very happy with these watches as they are within a comfortable price range for me (I would never spend over $700 for a watch). (I was able to get the Bulova and Nixon which retail for over $500 on Amazon for around $300 each).
Anyway, my question is what are the best sub $1000 watch brands, and what watches should i definitely stay away from? Like what brands will i know I am getting a quality watch that isnt going to break and is fashionable / well built?
I've seen alot of Invictas out there and they look nice but have read some pretty bad stuff about them and everyone has told me to stay away from Invicta.
Also, what are your favorite sub $1000 watches and where do you find the best deals?
