Hey guys I’m new to watches ( been wearing a fossil watch) I’m 25 and looking to wear something respectable and somewhat stands out. What should I get? I don’t mind getting preowned - I just don’t know where and how to buy preowned

You can get a LOT of great watches with that budget. Like, an overwhelming variety. My suggestion? Take some time to read, watch, and learn everything you can online. That’ll inform you about what you think you like - you’ll react favorably to some and not to others as you learn. Ignore the “rules” of Watch collecting and just learn the market.

Then go to a jewelers or boutique or Macy’s and try things on. Don’t be shy (that was my mistake). You may think you like something until you see it in person or on wrist and discover you actually like something else.

THEN buy a watch, enjoy it, and tell us all about it!

Echo the above sentiments about exploring. Great brands to look at in your price range are Nomos, Oris, and Longines. Check out YouTube videos and go to stores to find out what you like

I love hamilton. Field khaki has so much to offer and such a reasonable price point

What’s your budget?

Ben 10 watch is very stylish

Preowned Oris is hard to beat value wise. You can grab an Aquis with the 400 calibre movement preowned for ~$2k.
Or you can grab one of the specialty dials like the whale shark, or Great Barrier Reef.

Omega AT/seamaster 300 or a Tudor.

I would consider Nomos if it fits your style
