Hello all, I am very much new to this whole world of watches but am very intrigued. I've been checking out this forum for awhile now and retaining all I can. I am wanting to brake into the watch collecting with a nice dress watch. The two brands that stick out to me now that I like are Tissot and Hamilton. These are the two that I like the most. I would like to hear some opinions and pointers if at all possible. Thanks in advance.

Since the total number of candidates can be, and is, mind-boggling, I can only reflect what ~tc~ said. Either one would be a perfect introduction into the realm of finer timepieces. Plenty of time to ruminate, explore likes and dislikes and go on from there.

Thanks for the replies. I could see where I could wear the Hamilton at certain times but it's a bit too dressy for my line of work. Another question, is Jomashop a good place to buy from?

They're good up to a point - they are not an Authorized Dealer - they are a grey market retailer (see Wikipedia for a full discourse on Grey Markets). AD vs. Grey Market has been discussed elsewhere in other posts, so there's no need to get into the gory details here. You will get a Joma warranty for your product however, so you won't be totally out in the cold. Compare both the AD and Joma warranties before deciding which aspects are more important to YOU.
As to their reliability: I have not bought from them, but haven't heard of any complaints either.

It's a pretty pricey watch for me. So it wouldn't be my beater. I'm also a musician for a church; the drummer to be exact so I'm at church a good bit. So I'd still get to wear it a good deal.
I wouldn't be wearing an Auto to drum with, pick a nice quartz model for jamming days :thumbup1: The worst thing you can do to an Auto, are impact sports/hobbies like golf/carpentry/mountain biking....drumming :thumbup1:

My knowledge of instruments is limited to the violin (PLEASE...don't ask!) and B-flat trumpet. Are the drums really that punishing to one's forearms?

Well it would be according to how you play, some people play with their arms but I use wrists because I play for long periods at a time. The snap of the wrist to hit the drum is a whip like action so I'm sure it would jar the watch pretty good.
