Hey guys, I'm 20 and will be getting my first real watch.
My style is banana republic mixed with urban outfitters with some asian jazz in there as well.
I'm a college student and would like to keep this under $100.
I never thought I would ever wear a watch again, but this summer I will not be able to have a phone due to my internship and watches do look pretty sweet too.
So I know nothing about watches. My last watch was a tiny blue digital timex with velcro back in 7th grade.
Here is a watch that I really liked from earlier in this thread, with brown strap.
I hear a ton about the seiko 5, but I don't really think it looks good. I mean it's not ugly, but it's kinda messy looking imo.
That looks cool too in brown, but they're sold out =/
I like these too
I'm open to any suggestions.
I'm looking for a slightly classy/classic watch with a brown strap.
All trash. I can't believe you are considering knock-offs. You haven't been in these forums long, and it appears you have misread what they are about. They are about style; style obtained from the self confidence you bring as well as what you say by what (and how) you are wearing. Wearing a knock-off time piece reveals a whole lot more about your character than you might think (or even want to admit).
This is dangerous territory. Cheap is a relative term. If you're looking for a quality vintage timepiece, you are unlikely to find one cheap. You're question indicates that you not knowledgeable about vintage and used timepieces, so my advice is to save your money and buy new from a reputable dealer; you're more than likely to get burned.
