I don't want to spend a ton of money, but I want a decent everyday watch. Any comments, or suggestions watches for under $300 USD? I was also looking at the Casio G-Shock watches, but a lot of them are bigger than I like. (My Pulsar is 42mm by 12mm)


 

Have you considered the new Timex watches? They're definitely on my rader. :) http://www.amazon.com/Timex-T2N699DH-Intelligent-Quartz-Stainless/dp/B0053EXK78/ref=sr_1_258?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1325020834&sr=1-258

Nice, I like it. I'll definitely take a look at this one. SWMBO was less than thrilled with the price of the Citizen, but I can probably sell her on this one.

 

While searching for watches, I found this: (claims to be a mans watch)

At $250, I'm not sure if it's a joke or not...looks more like a Fisher-Price watch. One site wants $395 for it.

I don't know about that particular model but I know a great many of the citizen eco drive complication models have a thing where if the hands go out of alignment they can be reset so that everythng lines up again. Also I have found Citizen to be one of the best in terms of second hand hitting the markers bang on!

I personally would have the Citizens over Tissot's in the same price range. The tissots in that range use low grade mechanical or quartz movements in my experience and I think Citizen much better made to be honest!!

I think he meant an auto reset from the stopwatch function to re-zero.

Another diver added to the box. This one from Zenton, the V45. Features a top grade 7750 (adjusted to 5 positions) and THREE straps (bracelet, leather, and rubber).

 

This one will be getting a lot of wrist time I think!

My other IWC (and absolute favorite watch):

The problem is I really like it and don't want to mess it up, so I wear it around less and only for formal occasions.  On a day to day basis I wear the ingenieur chrono since it's built like a tank.

 

I bought a Damasko 46 black that I've been wearing around as a sports watch, and wearing it a little more than my IWC recently:

Nice !!!!!

A couple of minutes ago I ordered an Alpha Pilot PVD (titanium). Really looking forward to this watch. I've been questing for an automatic military-styled pilot. This watch look great on a black&grey Maratac Zulu nato! Can't wait!

One guy wrote that black and tan version looks better. What do you think?

I saw the black and tan version recently, very much my favorite of them all. Also, just think only three years ago was the technology they were using in their TX line which were over $400 in cost back then so these are a bargain. Always loved Timex watches, they are what I call an "honest" watch, they are reliable, proud of their place in horological history and bang for buck one of the best value watch brands out there. I am as proud wearing my easy reader as I am my Cartiers. Oh yes and mr king of cool Leonard Cohen wears a Timex!

I couldn't wear the tan version since all I wear is black. If you're more of a blue jeans and a shirt kind of guy it'll look great. :)

I love that one! I'm going for an Eco-Drive real soon. I hear nothing but positive comments on those and have been wanting to get one for months now. Great looking watch! Wear it in good health. :)
