Just a thought on price...

The average good quality mechanical watch nowadays is in the $400-$600 dollar range, offerings from Tissot or Hamilton spring to mind. Certainly something you wouldn't necessarily commit to without due consideration, they would be the modern day equivalent of the Bulovas of yesteryear. The only difference these days would be the good quality quartz, which would of course, be cheaper. maybe $2-300 ish.
