I still have the first watch given to me at the age of thirteen, an 60's Omega Seamaster. At fifteen I choose a Breitling Navitimer for my bitrthday. Now, in my 50's I still collect watches. I never had a digital or electronic watch. The exeption might be an original Hamilton Ventura. As a purist, I would choose the classic Omega Speedmaster, another good one would be the IWC Portuguese Chronograph or a Girard Perregaux. Even though some of them might be a bit outside your budget, also have a look at: Audemas Piguet, Blancpain, Breguet, Patek Phillipe and Vacheron Constantin. Some of these have been making watches for 250 years. If this is your first purchase of a quality watch, get all the information you can and take your time. Good luck, Teutone (aka Horst K)
