    I have a Citizen Eco-Drive in Titanium Has the Cgrono and all the neat little features that make it look like a pilots watch like a chron tachymeter etc, has Tritium hands and a gun metal face. I love it. Runs about 250-300 bucks. Looks great with my suits I wear every day or shorts and jeans. Highly recommend it. The big Navy SEAL watches and the like ar eOK but dont necessarily look good with everything. I want something I can wear with everything.

    Those NFW's look pretty good, but I'm unfamiliar with the make. I wish there was someplace local I could go check them out.

    Anymore, its hard to find a man's watch that isnt huge and actual numerals on the face and is not a chrono. Don't get me wrong, I like the chrono, they look pretty cool... except thats about it.
    I've been collecting watches ever since Swatch's were cool. I don't know how many I have. I've got everything from cheap Fossils and Timex's to Rolex. I've never once used a chrono, so I have a hard time paying extra for features I don't want and won't use.

    The best makers that suit my style and needs are Luminox and Victorinox. My issue with Luminox is all the Navy Seal crap all over it. I'm not a Seal and never will be one. I don't want their trident on my stuff. I also have a personal agenda against using stuff like the Seals or their trident as a marketing gimmick. I haven't earned a trident, so therefor I'm not going to buy one at the mall. Not on a watch, a hat or T shirt. I also feel like some sort of jack wagon when somebody asks me the model and I have to reply "Its the f-117" Its just kinda dorky... but it is a nice watch. Victorinox makes a nice quality simple watch and I like that. As does Hamilton. I'm fairly new to the Hamilton brand, but I like what I've seen so far.

    I know the feeling. Even with him so close to me it didn't make it any easier since he doesn't have a showroom. At the time I think he said some local jewelers might have some but I didn't feel like hunting around. He does have a zero risk return policy so I figured what the heck. Now I own two. ;) He also has had a contract with Reebok to produce the watches for NFL Refs and the Super Bowl.

    I'm glad someone started this thread. I like nice watches too but have never really had the budget to afford the nicer ones. I have a Swiss Army (cost $167ish probably 8 or 10 yrs ago), a Seiko dress watch and an Esquire that I refer to as my "date" watch (I think it was a little over $250 8 or 10 yrs ago). If I'm not mistaken, the Esquire is made by the same company that makes the higher end Movados.

    I'd like to get a Tag Heuer or maybe an Omega someday. I used to look around for watches years ago and really liked the Bell&Ross brand but it looks like their line has changed since I have last looked at them and unfortunately I don't like the new ones as well as the others I used to look at.

    Sounds like a lot of people have given you some really good tips on what to look at that is within your budget. Please post an update and let us know about your new purchase!

    I like quality watches. I've got a Tag and several Seikos. But for every day banging around, take a look at this one. Nylon strap (leather lined), Japanese quartz movement, scratch resistant crystal, luminous ring around the outer face along with luminous hands (glows in the dark), stainless steel (black chrome) finish, water resistant to over 150', and available for $40 at Walmart

    My bucket list watch is a Breitling. Take one of those over a Rolex anyday.

    I also agree. I have two Seikos. Look good, rugged, and durable for under 5 bills. I like Citizen too. Another quality bargain priced watch.

    I think your showing your age, most folks use their cell as a way of telling time. Im not sure if I own a watch anymore.

    Maybe someone here can explain this. I've owned an Accutron that lasted three days and quit. Two Seikos went four ande five days and quit. A Citizens lasted almost a week. A $15 Timex last years.
