    Actually I've been in the market for a wrist watch. I haven't worn one in 15 years and don't know where to look for a nice vintage one. Any suggestions?

    New "Vintage Watch"

    I do not own this watch yet, but I really like the look of it. Very WWI trench looking:

    And for under $100, not too shabby.

    Check ebay or a local specialty antique shop for a nice vintage good condition or refurbished one. it ill always hold value and look great, and a classic watch is always acceptable in business settings if it is a nice enough forties or so one, or if it is a sixties rolex or something like that.

    You don't look like you have an old watch, you look like a classic guy.

    Hamilton makes some fine watches. They have a vintage line also reasonably priced.http://www.hamiltonwatch.com/index_flash.html
    I have a Hamilton "Daredevil" styled after the movie with Ben Affleck.

    That should keep you busy for a while.
    The top on, Josephs has the best, but you'll pay also.I have a few more links at home I'll send you that have reasonably priced watches.

    I recommend buying a Hamilton. Retro style and quality and it's new. I have a 70's Omega and the Day stopped working on it. You really have to be careful buying older watches.

    Vintage Watch

    I am wondering if you all could reccommend, preferably with photos, types of watches that are dressy enough to wear with a suit or tux that have a metal band. I get terrible irritation with a leather strap, but I love the classic look. Any advice on what to do?

    Thanks!

    For suits and/or tux I currently wear a Seiko with black skin/leather strap. The Seiko is very thin, no date, quartz, with a gold colored face. Price about $127. Slides easily under French cuffs.

    For everday wear, work, play, sweat, sports, etc. I wear a Rolex Submariner Date in stainless steel. Price including tax about $5,600.

    Cheers,

    M8

    P.S. I'll upgrade the dress watch someday.

    Thank you! Thank you!

    Great ! Lots of great watches to look at! I'm strangely drawn to a somewhat plain semi-vintage Rolex Oyster (note my glazed eyes) which fortunately is not too expensive (considering).

    I also really like the Hamiltons !

    One on each wrist! That's the answer.....

    Cooper - What is the brand of the lovely white gold number you posted? I can't quite make it out.

    Sheer Elegance, with a leather strap... very nice.
