Thanks Rob and w+a. You are most helpful. I am looking forward to taking my first steps into the world of "fine" watches and really appreciate your thoughtful and helpful comments. A generous community, this. Much obliged!
All my watches (3) that I enjoy are automatic self-winding watches. They stop if I don't wear them for a few days...but it is really not an onerous process as Rob mentioned to get them moving again.
There are some people that buy for an increased value and hope to sell them. I just buy to wear. Two IWC Portofino's a Rolex Air King that I really like (not terribly expensive at all).
Invest in a great watch and you'll get the joy of wearing it...looking at it and appreciating all the work that went into making and crafting it.
