Hamilton watch for a College Student

835 Views 9 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  mgiraz
I am a college student and have been interested in watches for a long time. Lately I have been seriously thinking of getting my 1st mechanical/automatic watch and Hamilton is definitely one of the contenders.
Is there any recommendation for a good affordable Hamilton watch for a start to watch collecting? Also, is this a bad time time to buy a watch especially with the price increase and stuff or are they gonna increase further? Any chance of dropping prices??
I am really sorry if the questions sound ridiculous or amateur-ish.

Welcome axaequalsasquared ! I knew you were a college student for any one other than a student could spell that name!:biggrin:

If $ is an issue, I wouldn't be afraid of looking for a FSBO (For Sale By Owner)...the great thing about Hamilton is that you can buy even a brand new watch for under $500.00:thumbup:
I think the Hamilton Viewmatic series would be your best bet.
Reasonably priced, and I would not doubt that you will be wearing this 20 years from now.
Even if you begin collecting watches, you will still end up with the Viewmatic on your wrist occasionally.

Well stated Gerard...and good advise!
Disappointed that the movement isn't decorated more. The funky opening looks funny on the dial adds to the frustration. Not fond of it at all.
