I've decided that it's time that I invested in a watch that's a little nicer than the J. Crew Timex that I've been wearing around for the past year. I've done a little budgeting, and think that I can allocate somewhere around $500 for a watch.
Do any of you have any suitable recommendations for a watch in this price range? Ideally I'd like something that can be worn with both a suit as well as casually (so maybe something with a leather strap)?
Is $500 even enough to get a decent watch?
Please note that 1) I'm a college student, so my budget isn't really upwardly flexible by too much, and 2) I'm currently in New York, if that makes any difference in terms of finding a watch. However, if the difference between a garbage watch and a really nice watch is another $200, I'm willing to spend it.
Thanks for any help!
