    Hello Styleforum,

    My name is Matt and this is my first post on Styleforum, I would greatly appreciate any help! I recently graduated college and will be starting work in Private Wealth Management. I have never owned a watch before and am looking to spend up to $1,000 and possibly a little bit more for my first watch. I am open to buying a used watch that would be in that price range.

    - I am looking for a black genuine alligator strap and a dark colored face on the watch. (would be willing to buy the strap separately if need be)

    - Nothing flashy or gaudy.

    - I do not want something that you can buy in a department store with a big brand name on it.

    I don't really know anything at all about watches and have started my research but need some help. I am not making this post out of laziness from not wanting to do my own research, but rather to get some ideas and information that I do not know where to look for. As I said before, any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!

    Matt

    Matt, welcome. Right up your alley is the (so called) Poor Man's Watch Thread. It caps out right about $1,000. Good luck and good hunting.
