I Want A Watch... Just One Decent Watch ... Thats How It Starts I Gues

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm a noob to quality watches, can't really afford anything too decent but still I do want a proper watch.

I've narrowed it down to an Oris F1 chrono or TT.

I quite like the idea of a rubber deployment but the option of a bracelet too.

I like fairly busy watches, something that stands out but is not too garish.

Tag F1 are on my list of likes too.

Recommendations and points of view are welcome as well as your stories on what you started with...

Thanks guys and Roy (everyone says that so who am I to break with tradition)

just to warn you, this will only be your first 'proper' watch, especially if you hang around on here

I have a 90's Tag and a 60's Oris, so I admire your selection. If you are buying new I would lean towards the Oris, but I would also look at Sinn and I wouldn't dismiss Seiko either.

If Seiko were Swiss their watches would be 3x the price.

I've looked at Steinhart, Lum tec, Alpha.

Seiko - yes. What would you recommend to get me started.

I'm looking at sub £500 really.

£100ish for a seiko or citizen

Nice watch, I've got the Skeleton Engine F1 model, and love it.

If you like the traditional models you may want to consider the Oris Big Crown Day Pointers as well. You get a lot of watch for your money with Oris imho.
