Watches...

I just use a Swiss Army Watch made by Wenger-- Titanium. I have had it over 10 years without ant problems. Keeps perfect time and I paid ~$100 or less for it.

I have a Fossil watch since X-Mas and it is great. I do like expensive watches but in reality have never paid more than $250.00 for one. Never buy fakes, it is never worth it in the end.

Invicta is a brand that makes nice watches. I always see them at very good prices

I just bought an Orient Mako Pro to accompany the Tissot and Seiko 5 Military, read good things about them. Japanese automatic movement and this completes my trio set of a Swiss, Seiko 5 Auto and a Divers

What are some reputable online watch shops?

www.watchshop.com looked promising but after looking at their feedback on facebook almost all public posts are terrible, mainly complaints about customer services... it's probably only a small % of their customers but it does worry me..

I never wear a watch unless I'm going to a black-tie event, but the one I do own is an Invicta, which I remember wasn't expensive at all.

They seem to have a pretty big catalog of styles.

And about a year ago, I bought my dad a Skagen watch, which are super low-profile and a neat, simplistic style.

although i have a feeling i'm going to want some more so i'm going to start saving to around ?500 mark to get something better.

To me, the watches have become a pure accessory. I stopped wearing them ages ago, like a decade ago. And the last time I used to wear them, I found myself checking the time on my cell phone a lot more often. And because I always preferred mechanical mechanisms over quartz, I often had to adjust the time due to not wearing the watches regularly (they would stop).

I do still appreciate the Swiss made watches. My favourite brand is Vacheron Constantin.

It's an ME-1124. I personally think it's the best they've released in a couple of years. It's my 7th Fossil. The only brand I will wear.

For Fossil, if I don't buy direct from their online store or physical store, eBay is your best bet. There are tonnes.
