Out of the watches you picked the Carrera is probably the nicest. FYI, in college, or within most social circles people can identify Rolex, Omega, Movado, and TAG Heuer as "expensive" watch brands. That's it. The budget and value brands discussed on the Poor Man's Watch Forum and Timezone are basing their value assessment on mixture of horological movement, construction/materials, and aesthetic/brand reputation. I've had far more compliments on a stainless steel Fossil that I wore in college and while teaching simply because its "shiny." In contrast, tool watches from the likes of IWC, Sinn, Kobold, etc., will garner nary a glance.
