benswatchclub commented on Should I Buy?

Obviously, you can spend your money how you wish. Given you're after my advice, here's my take.聽
Personally, I don't think blowing 'most of your money' on any watch is a good decision; especially lower-cost ones that won't increase in value. There are plenty of even more affordable watches out there. I'd settle for one of those in the meantime and focus on improving your skillset (or find a side job) so that you can earn more money and buy a nice watch without worrying about the cost.聽
Casio makes some great low-cost quartz dress watches. Orient also make a very similar quartz alternative to the photo you've linked above, which is around half the cost. It might be worth scouting them out instead (can't remember the reference numbers).聽
