Where to buy watches?

Sometimes winners has them but that's a spotty place to buy a good watch.
So setting aside places like costco, and amazon, or the warhouse sales. What are some good websites/stores to buy decently priced watches? Hopefully in the 50-150 dollar range, ~200 if it'll last a very long time

Why not Costco and Amazon? Seriously those two are the best places to buy, The other place would be the Bay when they have watch sales.

For watches in the range you're looking for, I'd just buy from The Bay. They commonly have watches on sale for 25% off, and sometimes up to 35% off if you are patient enough to wait.

Fossil. I bought mine for $130 and it's the 4th year now and I have no complaint for it.

The Bay. Don't buy online you aren't sure if the watch is real and a lot of times The Bay have sales which is cheaper than online and you can see it in person.

For a $200 budget your options are limited to at best Seiko 5 automatics or quartz tissot and some Citizen watches on sale. The Bay carries a good selection, just need to wait for sales.

For maximum value id go with a Casio MDV-106 for $50, or if you want an automatic then Invicta 8926C (looks almost 1:1 to a rolex sub, Seiko parts inside) for $90-100 on sale.

Just about any watch can last a very long time if properly cared for, even "cheap" department store Timex watches. Automatics will need service, quartz can last forever with regular battery changes.

+1 Costco carries some amazing watches often priced as if USD/CAD were at par, seen very nice automatics from Oris, Tissot, Raymond Weil, even Tag, Breitling, and Omega. Only catch is selection varies by location and season.

Haven't seen much on Amazon lately, maybe I haven't been looking hard.

I have bought my watches at Costco and The Bay.

I like The Bay because stores typically have a watch repairman in house and they have great sales and clearances at times.
