I know most people may not agree with me here, but for an "entry" pair of raw denim, Levis isn't too bad. I've seen raw selvedge on sale for under 100. Granted, it's not the *best*, for your first pair it won't hurt.

I've seen some Cole Haans on sale for under 100 as well and Sebago is usually sub-100 too--both good options.
If it helps, I was at Macy's today and I found some nice Timex's in a similar style to the J Crew ones. I think the prices run around 40-50 bucks and they had a nice canvas strap with a vintage-esque dial.

Any particular reason? That is also the route I'm thinking though, because I could get the e9 in addition for more power, if I needed it.
I don't have any actual hands-on experience,...
