    I don't use watches but think many of them look really nice and I spend quite some time looking at watches in the shops when I have time to burn.

    Was surprised to find Breitling references only that late in the the thread. Their Navitimers have Indeed some nice models.

    Hublot also has nice models, but the prices can go up really quickly

    If you're in for budget range, quality, and value-for-money, buy Seiko.

    If you're in for premium range, quality, and value-for-money, buy Seiko.

    It's basically the only universally socially acceptable way men can accessorize without getting funny looks.

    I'm totally a watch guy, and have a small collection, but I prefer watches in the $300-800 range with unusual designs, which is why I'm not trying to give TS any input ITT.

    My most expensive watch is my Qlocktwo, by Biegert & Funk. The one I got was about $850. It tells you the time as people refer to it. Half past ten... Quarter after three...

    Mine is in het Nederlands, though.

    i'd spend somewhere between 50-500 if i were to get one. def not thousands.

    also, a watch is classic. there is nothing wrong with tradition and classical style.

    sometimes you might also be in a situation where it looks rude to whip out your phone so having a watch is good for those times

    When I wear my watch I feel like a retard because I check the time all the time, at least on the smarphone I can have the excuse to check the msg.

    Buy several fake Rolex watches. Nobody but you will know. There are many people who own fake Rolex watches and don't even know.
