10 Entry-Level Mechanical Watches

10 Entry-Level Mechanical Watches

Postby koimaster » July 24th 2018, 3:31pm

I am not certain where the word "entry level" applies to Rolex, Hublot or a couple of others in this list but I do know anyone who pays $10k plus for a SW300 powered watch is missing a few screws. Add to that they forgot to add Invicta, android and the rest of the tv watch models to the list.

Every watch collection has to start somewhere, and often that initial watch purchase is on a somewhat restricted budget. Here’s an introduction to entry-level mechanical watches from 10 brands. To narrow the field down, we only considered men’s watches with a case diameter of 37 mm or greater

That's gotta be the worstest "entry level" list ever.

A nearly $20,000 Patek is an entry level watch? What a complete dick.

That Krupp guy would fit quite well at Hoodwinkee. He's quite as thick as they are. Every time I see an article by him, it's complete and utter nonsense. Care to remind me, when exactly was the last time that he wrote an article of any value?

Entry level for who, Elon Musk?

entry level?

Hamilton, Tissot, Seiko, Citizen, Beijing Watch, Seagull, Marloe, Borealis and so many more. That list struck me as sponsored players.
