    One Watch... Go.



    Okay guys. I need a watch for under $50. Just one, and it has to be pretty versatile (chinos and button-up, but not necessarily okay with a suit). What should it be? I like the Timex, but what do you all say? Which Timex, if that?

      How about a Timex Easy Reader?

        I'm debating between

          I have the second one. The strap felt cheap, so I changed it. You might wanna take this in consideration. The strap on the first one looks better.

            For $15 more than your budget, this is a much better watch than a Timex Weekender:

              Juan: I don't like the strap on that Seiko...


              I think I'm going to go with option 1 from above...

                On second thought I see shipping brings it up to almost $50, so I suppose I'd be willing to go a bit above that for a good watch. Any other suggestions? Still around the $50 range...

                  I think the one joe linked a few weeks ago is very versatile since it has black and brown in it.

                    Roommate has http://www.amazon.com/Skagen-858XLSL...eywords=skagen that's right at $50.


                    To me at least it's pretty versatile. Nice clean polished look means it can dress up a bit, but since it's such a simple design I don't think it's out of place with polos and button downs. Then again, I'm sitting here wearing the Weekender lol.

                      Yeah, for under $50, Timex is going to be your best bet, probably something from the Weekender line. They're fairly robust, and you'll have a good mix of styling, in terms of the straps you can choose from. Also, the Indiglo on those is a very nice feature, especially at that price point.

                        For around $70 you can find the Seiko 5 with a slightly more conservative face and metal strap on Amazon.

                          2nd what tarmac said. Just got this Seiko 5 off Amazon for $63 shipped. You could pretty much wear it with anything including a suit. No complaints so far.

                            @Tim I like that Skagen. I'm putting it in my list of thing I could buy eventually.
