If I could I am sure I would spend foolishly on these wonderful devices. By the way, the jewels are always synthetic corundum (Ruby) not actual rubies. At least since man-made alternatives have been available.

I'm in the process of deciding which new watch I want. So far I'm researching a Tissot and Hamilton. But in my price range, less than 1k, there are so many great choices. I hope to make a decision this weekend.

Best of luck on your search.
I think it's more difficult to shop in the $500-$1000 price range than the higher price ranges. As you said, there are almost too many good options to choose from.
Let us know what you decide on.

I thought I would wear the boat anchor today.
This is, by far, the thickest and heaviest watch that I own so it doesn't see a ton of wrist time.
I like it too much to sell it even though it stays in the box most of the time due to the weight.

I've got both the Tissot Seastar Powermatic 80 and Hamilton Khaki Air Race, which like the Tissot also has 80 hour reserve power. I love both and managed to get a bit of discount on both which helped my decision process....bought both!!

I had it narrowed down to a Christopher Ward C65 Sandhurst, a Mido Commander II or the one I chose s-l640.jpg

So many awesome watches, never get bored of seeing them, keep it going. I don't have many to add, sold most of the ones that would sell, but i still have a few less worthy ones, here's my favorite, simple but effective, pardon the grime, this thing has been with me through a lot

All of them were nice choices but I like the Oris. They make a fine watch.
Congrats on your new watch and enjoy it.

A well loved watch is a beautiful thing.
