Picking the right watch is important. Unlike an expensive piece of clothing, it's something you'll wear everyday, and something you'll have for years. G-Shocks are cool when the pressure is off, but if you're looking to graduate to something a little classier, follow these tips:
1) Buy Overseas
• You won't get killed on sales tax, and watches are available in models that you can't find in the U.S.
3) Verify Your Online Purchase
• Check Watchfinder.com, then email the manufacturer to validate the deal.
4) Fix & Restore Your Father's Vintage Piece
• Aaron Faber Gallery specializes in the restoration and refurbishing of antique and treasured timepieces.
