  Roger, do you take the same size in boots as you do in shoes, or do you go up a half-size or so? I'm awfully tempted by a pair of Carmina bal boots, but I'm also concerned about whether they'll lace up properly over my instep.
@Groove - You should probably cross-post this query in the Watch Appreciation Thread, as I'm sure that the members who post there will have some good suggestions (although you may find your budget creeping up a little, too!).   http://www.styleforum.net/t/36253/the-watch-appreciation-thread   Having a watch appreciate in value is really more luck than anything else, unless you happen to buy a "grail" watch that is highly coveted.
