I own say five (two would be enough) different Timex watches and wear one every day . Really the cheapsest thing around, but to me they still look good and have been going for years. I somethimes think about getting a, for me, expensive watch, say 1000 $ but I really dont think I would appriciate it that much. Given that you dont "interact" with watches as much as clothes, in the sense of combining with different items, or even just in a sensory manner (as a watch is just always there) the subjective value (for me) of having a good/expensive one is lower than with clothes. And a cheap one obviously avoids any concerns of ruining it with wear.. Its quite practical with watches though, I like not having to fiddle around with a phone for seeing what time it is. So, if you find a cheap one that looks nice, try it.
