There comes a time in every man's life when we get fixated on high quality. That quality typically comes with a price tag -- a luxurious, big ticket price tag. A number of things fit into our new world view on quality. Cars, shoes or my vice for the moment -- an awesome watch. I have always been interested in timepieces. They can represent so many life milestones: an anniversary, a graduation, or even getting that promotion that you have worked so hard for.
So you've saved a couple bucks and you are at the point that you want to buy something nice; now what? In most cases, especially for me, a watch is an emotional investment -- not a financial one. Make sure that your time instrument reflects you. With that being said, I do have a couple pointers to share for the first time buyer:
Avoid the Bling; Think of diamonds, precious metals and stones as malware on your computer. It takes up precious space and will cause you problems in the long run. The bling distracts you from what's important. Concentrate on the things that matter such as Swiss craftsmanship -- and figuring out If the watch is Quartz or Automatic
Heritage and History Matter: For the rookie, the well known brands might be the safest bet. Quality is most important. If you pick the right brand and style this watch might be something your son is asking to where on his wedding day.
The New Rolex Oyster Perpetual Watch checks all of the boxes for me. This "entry level" Rolex starts at a little under $6000. This watch makes a statement without being to gaudy. Rolex did an awesome job on this watch. It looks modern, but still traditional. This watch can last you a lifetime and there is zero chance that it will be out of style in the next century.
