I am a 20 year old at University of Oregon and have decided it is time to buy my first dress watch. My problem is that I want the watch to do a lot for me and, being a college student, don't want to spnd too much on it. I'm looking for a watch that can go with everything from my ducks jersey on gameday to a full suit for whenever I need to wear it. So I had it narrowed down to 2 watches after about 10 hours of looking at everthing I could find in the 200-300 range and just a few things above that.
The first is a Michael Kors watch that I picked because I like the color scheme. I know that these aren't the most quality time pieces out there, in fact they are really just Fossil with the Kors name on them, but its the cheapest of the three and would let me upgrade without feeling as bad after a couple years.
The second is an Emporio Armani. Its quite a bit more expensive so if I were to buy this I would probably want to keep it for a while. At least for until I graduate, possibly until after grad school.
Then I decided I might as well look around in the upper price range a little more so I looked at a few Tag Heuers and then fell in love with Movado. While most of them are well over $1,000, I found this one at costco.
So I guess I have quite a few questions.
First, what is the general opinion on buying a watch only for the looks? And a Michael Kors at that?
Second, does anyone know anything about Emporio Armani watches?
Third, what's the opinion on Movado?
