I love all these watches. Thanks for posting, I'm now even more confused.
I'd say, figure out what you want in terms of:
- Versatility (Everyday vs. Dress vs. Business)
- Dependability (Winding vs. Self-Winding/Automatic vs. Battery)
Once you've got that it should narrow down options well. Then it's all about aesthetics.
Brands with good reliability/maintenance in addition to the ones I own: Seiko, Timex, Citizen, Tissot
Brands with relatively poor reliability IME: Cartier (hate to say it, they're beautiful watches), Movado
This is where I'm confused.
Budget: I don't have one. I have some really nice classic watches from high end brands (Rolex, Longines, Dior) passed down from my mum but I always bang my arms about so I want to avoid ruining these just because these are more sentimental value. I also have some low end brands. However, all these watches have a slightly small face. They're not masculine/fashionable type if you get what I mean. Ideally I would like a high end one but they either have a small face or they've got diamonds and stuff which is just too glam for me.
I was thinking of getting either a Burberry or Michael Kors which normally I avoid (especially MIchael KOrs). I liked the MK when they first came out but everyone had them so I just left it. Then I was leaning towards Burberry. Then I heard they're made by fossil so I looked into that but the fossil watches also have small faces and they're actually a bit boring just like the watches I already own. So I thought it makes more economic sense to get Michael Kors just because they're a teeny tiny cheaper than Burberry. Then I looked into Marc Jacobs. They're kind of nice too. I think they may also be made by fossil. And. Maybe DKNY.
I want an everyday watch. Something I can wear at uni.
I would like a silver bracelet watch similar to that above rose gold Michael Kors watch posted but I want mine in silver.
My main concern is I don't want to be like I'm following trends because I know MK watches are in right now. But I can't help it I do actually like them and they're really cheap. But if they're made poorly or whatever I won't buy.
So out of MK, Burberry, DKNY, Marc JAcob. Which one is better to buy? Which brand is more prestigious?
Any other brand suggestion? Preferably under £5000. But without diamonds and crystals and all that. For a silver bracelet.
P.s. I always thought Cartier watches were good. I so wanted Cartier to make a similar watch to MK but they don't just because I thought the brand was good and in my budget.
