watch connoisseurs?

looking at getting something between the timex level and a tag. what do y'all think about the citizen brand? i'm nearly 33 and haven't worn a watch for more than a few days in my entire life. but now that i'm meeting with clients again on a regular basis and representing myself, i can't be pulling out a cell phone to check the time and date. i want something big though (that's what she said). so i like the ~45mm size (or bigger). but not like a wrist clock or something breitling would make (although they are pretty pimp).

i'm looking at this one... it's a 44mm x 12mm stainless steel (what i'm looking for), and i kinda like the way it looks. any thoughts, experiences, suggestions, hookups, etc? maybe other brands i should check out, or pawn shops i need to visit? haha

Re: watch connoisseurs?

Citizen is decent and the eco-drive is cool.... But I guess I dont really know... I dont wear a watch, I just use my phone... and I have a couple watches, ranging from timex to Rolex....

Re: watch connoisseurs?

Id grab the top one, any sort of digital displays are lame and not classy lol.

If youre looking to step up your game I may know someone with a sub-mariner for sale

Re: watch connoisseurs?

if its for "meeting" purposes only, get whatever....but as an investment or as a 'grown man' piece, you should look to spend easily over a grand or two (and thats on the low end) for a reputable/recognizable/valued watch....every man should own a top notch watch at some point....theres many different brands/makers so its more of a personal opinion....

im not declaring myself a watch connoisseur but i been in the fashion/retail business for like 15yrs & know a little about style/fashion....plus im cool with a number of celebs/artist/musicians so i see how the rich folk live! lol

Re: watch connoisseurs?

i say go for a movado, not too expensive but doesn't get lumped together with the other lower end watches so it sets a decent statement.

that or the ESQ line, they are the lower model Movados I think....

Either way, dont get a digital. It could be a $20k digital, but it'll still seem like a timex to most folks...

I love my oyster perpetual.....
