Budget watches for the novice: Sea-Gull dress watch
I am still new to watches and i have been trying to grab some few budget pieces with good quality and brand. At the moment i am mainly focused on owning a large number of watches on the lower end of the budget ( max. $200.00) that retain some resell value (think.. seiko, casio, tissot, vostok, poljot, sea-gull etc).
At the moment i am considering a sea-gull dress watch;
What do you think people? It is going for about US$215.00 including transport. It has a Sapphire crystal, self-winding and link the blue hands :-)! Any better alternatives for the price? I am also considering a seiko 5 SNKL23K which is going for around $150.00 including transport. Frankly speaking, i think this sea-gull is a better looker than the Seiko 5 but the latter is more iconic i guess, and might retain vaue in the aftermarket. What are your thoughts?
I recently came across the Sea-Gull 1963 handwinding;
It is going for $300.00 a little bit steep for me but is it worthwhile checking it?
