I have a Rolex Oyster Perpetual DateJust that basically sits in the box. For everyday wear, I like my Timex Ironman.

This is my best (yet to own) ....

There are many version of this (in black), still debating which one is the best but i like all of 'em

In more down to earth, the diesel one (already posted) and similar version of Guess is good. Little more economical choice, fossil leather.

No other.
For Sale:

The bad thing about the combo watches is having to replace the battery every 1 or 2 years. My LCD Ironman is on the same original battery for 6 years and still going.

Please...this thread is for watch lovers....if you think that a $50 watch is all one needs...then that is your perogative.

Expensive watches are a luxury item......the definition of the word luxury is "Something inessential but conducive to pleasure and comfort. or Something expensive or hard to obtain". That doesn't mean the "owner is a tool" necessarily even if you don't agree with their sense of aesthetics or they can afford or are willing to spend a lot more than the average person.

One cheap watch brand that I find fascinating is Swatch. Because they are a powerhouse of a company, and their comglomerate owns some powerful watch brands. They also make some pretty nifty looking watches.

Here are some of my favorites.

have a swatch currently and I love it. Light and durable.

However I'm looking to spend a good $200-300 (per watch) on a pair of watches (for me and my gf). I've looked everywhere but couldn't really decide. Is there a watch forum I can go to?

I'm looking for something very light, not too flashy very conservative. Our main pet peeves are:

1. Titanium/Aluminum (light light light)
2. Must be a matching pair
3. Must have the date
4. The woman's watch must be very very small (gf has a small wrist)
5. Can't be over our budget by like $100 or more.
6. Preferably silver in colour, no gold.
7. And something attractive that my gf will like (she is picky :lol :)

Here's my main watch, a Movado, that I bought in Florence, Italy a few years ago for several hundred less than it costs here in Canada.

For casual occasions, I wear one of my Fossils - either the Chinese Big Tic or the "Stickman" Big Tic

I found that European watches tend to have the price higher than in Europe. Must be the import price....

i like breitling watches especially the chronographs. i almost bought one in hk but was unable to justify the cost. it would have been over 2000 canadian. it was half the price of what it would have been here. if no money was the object, it would be a patek philippe for sure, probably the 3940g model.
