If you want to get a decent watch, please stay away from fashion brands like DW. I am not familiar with Kent Wang, so I can't comment. If you're looking for a great all around watch with some heritage and brand prestige, check out Seiko and Orient. They both make their own movements for their automatic watches. I started with an Orient (their Bambino) and then after saving for a bit bought a Tudor Black Bay Blue. Since I bought the Tudor, I have not even considered buying another watch. It's absolutely spectacular. Quick explanation on movements: Quartz is battery operated. They are generally more accurate than an automatic movement. But you generally will have to change the battery unless it is a solar cell. There's nothing inherently wrong with quartz watches, but from what I've seen within the watch community, these are generally not the preferred movements unless you're getting something like a digital timepiece. Automatics have a mechanism that winds the watch while it's being worn or in a winder. Many automatic watches allow for the watch to be hand wound, but not all. Most movements have a period of time in which the watch doesn't need to be worn to keep going. Hand wound requires the wearer to wind the watch. After being fully wound, you'll get a day or two of reserved energy to keep the watch going. Last thing: Regardless of what I say, or anyone for that matter, you need to get something you'll enjoy wearing, regardless of who makes it. I steer friends away from the fashion brands because my experience has shown they are mostly garbage quality. You also need to think about your budget. For watch people, $5-8k isn't a lot to spend on a watch. For most of us ordinary people, that's a huge sum to spend on anything, especially a watch.
