Personally, function is much more important than "style".
Therefore, I wear a Timex Indiglo day/date watch with 24 hour dial.
It keeps accurate time.
It shows the day and date.
The watch hands glow in the dark.
The Indiglo feature makes an adequate flashlight in a dark room.
It didn't cost a full day's wages!

"Stylish"? IMO, adequately. Some would say NO!
Functional? Oh, yes, wonderfully so!

Citizen ended this wholesale slaughter once and for all.


Also - I can sell my existing watch and get 50% at least of the cost of a new Citizen

Before the holidays, I've been specifically looking for a black watch, chronograph, "boyfriend watch", in any brand BUT Michael Kors. There are too many MK out there, I didn't want to be one of them.

I have gone through so many stores...so many! Watch stores, department stores, even the same store again and again, just in case they have a new stock. I've mainly gone to Marshalls. For every 5 gold and silver boyfriend watch, there's 1 black. I didn't realize it was this hard to find the black watch I've wanted, mainly because it's hard to find a black watch that's not leather. In the end, I found the one at Marshalls, with all the designs I've envisioned... everything to a tee ...and lo behold, it's MK. Lucky for me, the MK logo is extremely small ha!

The point is, sometimes, these unwanted name brand ones are probably the one you're going to end up loving...so don't be too closed minded about it. At the end of the day, I realized, no one really gives a crap what watch I have lol. Name brand or not, it's just a watch.

Found this on Slick Deals and I think it is a good looking watch:



$499 after code.

Code: AFFJMASTER499
Expires: 1/23 at 11:59 pm

Hamilton Jazzmaster H42515735 Men's Watch

Be aware that Ashford is a gray market seller and you have to go through them for all warranty work.

But this is just one of many options there are a lot of good watches out there in every price range.

I have several watches. I have the classic Movado (since 1980) which I wear with formal wear or with a suit. I have a black Skagen which goes well with anything. I have a large, gold Invicta pilot style which while gaudy, goes well with casual/sport wear. I have a Seiko that looks like the classic silver/gold Rolex that goes well with anything.

In the 80's and 90's it was considered part of the uniform in high tech sales to wear the basic day/date, gold/silver Rolex. Sold it when I got out of high tech and was glad to be rid of it.

I say most anything over $300 is a waste for a watch.

Have you checked what that watch would go for now?

I have a gold and diamonds with mother of pearl face and chrono, I want a silver





Then I will never buy another watch again except for (maybe) $2 fashion stuff

Yep, we're fans of Citizen Eco-Drives around here too. Both the husband and myself have several. To me - they are perfect price point-wise. Not cheap - but not too expensive.


Nothing worse that going to wear my watch and finding the battery dead, IMO . Love solar power!
