Hello, folks, I'm looking for a web site that provides a good overview of wristwatches. I'd love to find a site that looks in-depth at different brands of watches, movement types, etc., as I'm in the market for a new watch (or three).

Sorry if this comes off harsh, but why not use Google? I personally feel watch websites are mainly chosen the way you choose to be in a forum; just a personal feel towards it.

I'd go with:

http://www.timezone.com/

For most information...very in depth stuff.

http://forums.watchuseek.com/forum.php

Is a great board as well for many brands, you'll find tons of reviews and comparisons on the site.

Thanks for the links, David. I used Google but got bombarded with sales-focused/commercial sites, regardless of the search terms I used. Thanks again for your suggested sites, I will check these out.

I'd be interested to know what these senior (and non-senior, as well) members of SF think of the aesthetic sensibilities of TZ members as a group. Can someone go there and get good all-around advice? Or would he be better off getting technical recommendations from TZ and then coming to SF for aesthetic advice. (Or the opposite order.) I'm oversimplifying, but you get the idea.
