    I'd imagine this is what one would expect from a 16 year old with enough disposable income to drop $1200 on a watch.
    Some of us have jobs, i currently go to school 40 hours a week and hold two part time jobs.

    Didn't mean to be disgraceful but i did make my point in the first post [​IMG]

    I'll check out the timezone forums, keep the suggestions coming.

    How about a Nomos? The Tangente sport has a decent water resistance (10 ATM) so it is truly versatile. Much higher quality and finishing than most watches at that price point IMO...

    That's a beautiful watch but for some reason i have this obsession with metallic wrist bands, but yes that's one beautiful watch [​IMG]

    I would second a vote for Oris - excellent quality for the money. You get a slightly reworked ETA movement but it's the fit and finish of the case and bracelet that give you excellent bang-per-buck. I bought a number of watches in that price range - including Glycine and others and while the others were nice, Oris really looked and felt like it was in the next league up. I'd buy an Oris before a Tag, which is more $$. Not that they are not nice but Oris is more watch for the money. Plus they have their own look, whilst most other mid-low level watches tend to clone Rolex or IWC or Patek Philippe designs. I found nice Oris watches online for under $750 a few years ago....prices may have jumped a little since then?

    At a lower price point, I'd recommend Victorinox Swiss Army (not Wenger) if you don't mind quartz, or Seiko Divers - a bit clunky and thick but extremely durable and probably the best value mechanical.....quite waterproof and the best luminous dial on earth. You could pick up either of these online for under $300ish - or get both, one for sports, one for dress, for $600

    either way, I don't know that you would need to spend $1200; only buy the watch you need, and stick the other $600 in the bank .....
