So here is my dilemma: I have found the perfect watch for me, but the ticking that it makes is driving me nuts.

I know you all will laugh but this is the style I am looking for:

It is inexpensive, somewhat small for my skinny wrist, and tells time. I also don't need to worry about it being damaged or stolen.

Can anyone recommend something similar in the $100 and under price range that has similar aesthetics.

I'd look on eBay. This watch is pretty similar, but the auction ends soon.

I like that seiko, it's slightly pricey for me though. I just can't ever purchase kenneth cole anything. Still on the hunt.

Nice find. Could a NATO strap be added to that one easily?

Yes, as long as strap width is 18mm.

Get the Seiko 5 with nato nylon band. It costs about $50, fully automatic, even has a seethrough back.

If you want to match your Timex, buy a nice $30 aftermarket band. $80 total, done.
