Cheap*** (Sub $300) Watch Appreciation thread!
First up is my perpetual calendar Citizen I picked up 3 years ago for ~$120 at the warehouse sale.

Likes: Solid, quality feel; sporty looks; perpetual calendar means you never have to re-adjust the date; chronograph; bright lume
Dislikes: Accidental turn of the crown changes watch mode; chronograph too difficult to read; not too accurate at +15 secs/month
Was one of my daily watches until I picked up the AT watch last year, but still one of my favourites.
Next is my rough-wear watch, the cheap ($13?$10? I can't remember) Casio I bought courtesy of the RFD Zellers/Casio price error (?) thread from 4 years ago:

Likes: Lots of features - 5 alarms, dual time, timer, stopwatch, moon phases/tide-watch tracking, manual compass; large display, very lightweight; water resistant; battery rated for 10 years!; extremely accurate; and DIRT CHEAP!
Dislikes: Feels cheap
The most amazing thing about this watch is its accuracy +18 seconds .... in ONE YEAR!!! I have a feeling this is probably more accurate than my AT watch if I turned the automatic time-keeping adjustment off ...
