Ahh...looking at watches again before I move!

Looking to spend around $500 on my first formal timepiece.

The Hamilton Khaki, Christopher Ward C65, Bulova Lunar Pilot, Tissot PRX, and the Seiko SRPF41 are a few that I am looking at.

Looking more for a daily vs special occasion kind of watch, no preference on style or strap.

Would love to hear your thoughts all!

I think I would go with Seiko first.

My next watch purchase is likely a Hamilton Interstellar Pilot Day Date Auto, so I'm partial to that Khaki choice. But, Seikos are great watches and for fit, finish, and movement, they are hard to beat for the price. My pick would be a Seiko Sumo. I have one and it is exceptionally comfortable and handsome, and the 6R15 movement has proven very accurate. Now, they've upgraded the movement to have a 70 hour power reserve, which is very handy if you switch watches frequently.

Just discovered this thread exists.
My super thin yet durable daily driver. I work around chemicals (some very corrosive) a lot so I'd rather not expose my more expensive timepieces around them :sweat_smile:

Reference: Casio Edifice EFR-S108D

By formal do you mean for formal settings?

I meant formal in the sense of I've only owned smart watches up until this point :)
