I am thinking I should go ahead and get a watch. When I was younger, I found metal bands to be extremely uncomfortable (pulling arm hairs), so I've largely stayed away from watches. However, I recently tried on several watches with leather bands and found them to be far more comfortable (and, of course, much classier).
I'm looking to spend $500 or less (which I realize is not much in the watch world). For work, I wear a suit, blazer or sport coat.
I have come across this Hamilton Jazzmaster Viewmatic at a local store. I think it is quite lovely, and it does have a sapphire dial. Online, it runs about $470. I would appreciate your thoughts. Is this a good value for the money? Am I wasting my money getting a lesser expensive watch such as this? I am hesitant to spend any more money because I'm not sure how much I will wear a watch regardless of what I spend.
