Starting to get into watches and am debating to spend the Hamilton / Stowa /Junghans range or to move onto a little higher range at Nomos. (or any brand recs in the $500-700 / $~2000 ranges) Cost isn't a major issue but just wondering if it's better to get a "starter" watch to get used to it first or to just go in. Do prefer components and build and want something simple and reasonably versatile. And one more dumb question, is it necessary to get a rotation of watches? Or is one just fine?
Wearing a simple timex now.
I plan on getting a Hamilton Intra Matic* for $600 from Jomashop before to long. As I like the looks of that watch at least as much as anything I've seen from Stowa, Frederique Constant, Who Ever in the next price bracket ... I'm not seeing the point in spending $1,500 on a watch as I don't expect a $1,500 watch to appreciate in value and I don't expect a $600 Hamilton to shit the bed any time soon. Granted, there's always the self satisfaction that goes along with knowing that you spent more on your Stowa than most of the guys running around in their Hamiltons and Tissots but again, I like the looks of the Hamilton better, so...
