    I want a watch I can wear everyday that is versatile with everything I wear, problem is eBay has a billion results and I dunno which one I should be going for.

    I don't want to spend anything more than 30-40 bucks on a Timex.

    Please help me out guys.

    Don't bother with vintage; it's very hit or miss unless you know exactly what you're looking for. A Weekender or an Easy Reader should suit you well if all you need is a cheap watch to wear with everything.

    Yeah, the Seiko 5 line is an excellent value. Solid choice.

    +1 on the Seiko 5. Swap the band for a leather strap (or leather Nato strap) and it'll be miles above the Timex.
