Like many people, I have never owned a "fine watch". $200 was the most I had ever spent on a watch, but reading this forum and seeing the passion with which some of you discuss the topic motivated me to take the plunge.
I started at what I'm certain many 'watch connoisseurs' would consider the low end of the scale but nonetheless am pleased with my IWC GST Alarm in titanium. Watch details here (although this is not where it was purchased).
These forums are going to break me!
