    I would also check out Bertucci watches they go for less than $120.

    Edit-Bonobos looks to have some Bertuccis. With the new member referral link($50 off your first purchase of $100 or more) they can be had for like $70.

    There were a couple of extra bands at Target but not much. I really like the maroon with gray stripe one, anywhere know where I can get one without having to buy a new watch?

    Sorry, but this is just silly. For $35 the Timex is a fine looking watch that will keep great time (much better than any Seiko 5 I've ever seen). If you are considering these watches then chances are you don't care one bit what some pretentious watch snob thinks about your timepiece.

    If you are into watches a little and appreciate the mechanical movements and don't mind their quirks, then yes, the Seiko 5 is a great option. My roommate has one and loves it. But for most people these Timex models are probably a better choice. I'm just happy to see a nicely styled watch for the masses from Timex rather then the crappy looking stuff they have put out previously, or the overpriced but great looking J Crew version


    oh....and this is all coming from one of those watch snobs. I've been down the nice watch road a few times (handful of Omega SMPs and Speedys, Panerai, a few Rolex, etc.). I currently wear a 5 year old Omega SMP (2254.50) that is in need of service in the near future and I'll probably pick up one of these Timex models to takes it's place during the few month absence I'm sure will be required for the service.

    It's a solid value, but it's not very difficult finding a stylish quartz watch in this price range at all.

    really? I don't think I've ever seen another $35 I'd actually consider wearing, most of them are hideously overdesigned. I honestly can't think of another watch at this price point that is decent looking and easily accessible. But then again I don't look at $35 watches very often either I guess.

    Umm...how about because you like it? Isn't that about the best reason to buy anything?

    For $35 (at target, they were all 35...even the ones that timex lists as being a lot more), you get a good looking watch that will keep good time and require very little adjustment and zero winding for years before it needs a new battery.

    If you own several watches...who wants to deal with a watch that dies and has to be wound and reset (which can't even be done with the seiko 5 without shaking your wrist around according to your other post) if you don't wear it for a few days?

    I saw a bunch of these at target and they looked great. I want to buy one of the bands but they were out of stock of the one I wanted...I also really like the gray faced watch with the orange striped gray band...but it is too similar to the DIY version I made before this got "cool" (a similar white faced easy reader with a maratac nato band) to justify buying it.

    Hmm...I googled Seiko 5, and I didn't like the way any of them looked as much as I liked the way the Timex Weekender I bought on eBay for $36 shipped looked. I really don't care about watch mechanics or street cred with watch connoisseurs. I don't want to have to do anything with or to my watch to set it correctly outside of adjusting it for DST twice a year.

    I feel like I'm getting the Levi's STF of watches, which is what I want at this point.

    This watch is great. I've owned 3 Seiko 5's and they sucked ass--- perhaps bad luck? I'm with notwithit.
