I currently have three watches in my humble collection - one on a steel bracelet, one on a ZULU nylon strap, and one on rubber. All of which are very decent watches for just under $100 and all of which serve me well as daily wearers (Pics up soon!) A big birthday is coming up in a few months however and I do want to look at a chronograph on a leather bracelet. Realistically I can afford to set aside $500, perhaps $600 if there is a very good reason for me to do so. I've shortlisted 2 models, but am really welcome to any suggestions. The models are: - Vostok Gaz ( ) - Jorg Gray 6500 ( ) Both run on Miyota movements, but I'm wondering what a decent Swiss choice would be, at this price range. Cheers!
I was in an Omega showroom with a friend a few days past where I viewed a Speedmaster that would cost, after discounts and everything, just under 5000 USD. 'You mad? I'd get a few different watches for a few hundred dollars each and wear them, for 5000 USD', my friend remarked. He isn't a watchhead and can thus be forgiven, but he did get me thinking. Let's say you were given (only on Top Gear do you get 'given' money, but pray read on) $4900 (I surreptitiously keep the extra $100) to spend on 7 watches, one for each day of the week. Which ones would you choose? And why? These all have to be brand new, mind.
