So I'm doing my pilots license and need to get a watch. At the moment I'm borrowing a watch but I need one of my own. I've been searching around on some manufacturers sites (Nixon, Vestal, Fossil, just to name a few) but I haven't really found one that I love. I'm not much of a watch guy but I don't want to get some cheap timex either so thats out of the question. The watch will be a graduation present so price isn't soo much of an issue, I'm looking around a $500 max. I need it to last me a long time since I'll be using it for my commercial license as well. I'm hoping there are some watch people here who can help me out by recomending either brands to check out or even better, an actual model.
Heres what I'm looking for in a watch:
- Dual dials (two time zones)
- All black (or atleast dark greys) either leather strap or metal.
- Some waterproofness, I don't need to be able to surf with it but I don't want to have to be constanly worrying about getting it wet.
- Durable, not industructable but I'd rather not be constantly worrying about breaking it.
If someone can point me in the right direction that woul be great! Any recomendations are welcome.
