    Hello all (blame Digmenow for my presence if you must). [​IMG]

    A while back I was in this boat - wanted a nice watch but still have a psychological hurdle to clear in terms of how much to spend on a daily wear item and the lack of demand in my life for getting properly dressed up. Settled on this from Zappos, which despite obvious flaws I still quite like nearly a year on. About $225.

    I disavow all knowledge of this man.

    unfortunately kinda $$$. the non chrono is in the 1k region. dunno bout this one. but i've been thinking about more playful brands lately. if you're buying a less expensive watch than the serious rolex/ omegas/ pah tek i was thinking might as well buy something fun looking and casual. just a random thought. this one is very blue..

    Some great watches and ideas in this thread. Plus they fit in my tight budget. Some of those Skagens are sweet.

    This is a great look-love that band on this watch.

    Have had the exact watch for close to a year. Great watch, wears well & gets lots of comments (for a $70.00 watch-Amazon).
