asphericalperspective replied to your post: Hi, I’m a big fan of your Tumblr. I love watches and am looking forward to the day I can buy some of the watches you wear. I was wondering if you had a recommendation for a good starter watch though? I’m in my mid twenties, starting law school, and looking for something that I can wear casually but that will work under a suit. My ideal price range is $200-500. Currently I’m looking at getting a Hamilton Khaki Field Auto with a metal strap but was wondering if you had any suggestions. Thanks!

Great recommendations! I would add some other “boutique” brands: STOWA (German) is definitely work a look. Their military aviators are a little above your limit at ~%650, but it’s definitely worth it. They are spectacular.

Absolutely STOWA. In the German “boutique” vein although still a little out of price range is Archimede which has a little bit of everything from field-like to aviator to dive to railroad to classic… too many choices and too little time to wear them all!
