As a way to introduce myself to the WristReview.com community, I thought I would review the watch out of my small collection that finds itself most often on my wrist. I am a fan of mechanical watches, but I am not a collector per se, nor am I ever likely to purchase a very high end watch. It isn’t that I would not want to own one, it is just that there is no way I can justify to myself the cost of a $2,000 watch, let alone a $20,000 watch. So with that mindset, I am drawn to watches that are less that $1,000, with sub $500 being the real sweet spot.
