Skagen. Classy, lightweight (titanium versions), very comfy, and reasonably priced ($100-200). The only brand I'll wear now.

I have 2 Skagens. Great watches, wonderful designs without being flashy.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual day/date. 200-300 you say? I'm sure you can find one around the Gold Mart in LA. Some alleys around there have the best, most unbelievable deals....

Omega Seamaster.

121 Time was also a recommendation for being classy without the exhorborant price tag:

I prefer a simple Casio G-Shock simply because of the beating my watch usually takes.

I've been wearing a Wenger watch since 2003 and haven't been able to scratch the crystal yet! I have a bad habit of hitting my wrist on door jams.... think I paid around $150 for it.

edit: Not sure, but I think the one you posted is a collector's item worth more than Ovo's budget.

But as cell phone and a watch will be a thing of the past...
Time to get modern!!

Haven't worn a watch since my first cell phone.
Seems redundant to me.
IMO

I hate having to reach into my pocket to see the time. Besides, it's fashion more than necessity.

Second that. I have a model 79076, NIB from ebay for $70. All SS, waterproof to 200 m, rotating bezel, same style as the Rolex submariner.

Hey, you forgot to mention if it is a dress (working) watch or a sport/cycling one.

I support the motion on the Skagen, mine is ti with carbon fiber face and I also like a lot my Nike zero drift.
It has a digital compass, weather station, altimeter, dual time/alarms, thermometer, altitude log, ski run chronograph and other basic functions.
Both well under $200.

Pick One!

A cellphone will never take the place of a watch in my book. Out to dinner with my honey, think I'm carrying a phone on my hip? Pfft! Nobody better bother me!

Recommend me a casual analog, non-chrono watch with a nice canvas band. I've looked at Seiko, Timex, and Citizen. Any others out there?

Swiss Army watch. I've had one for 15 years - indestructible.

Please tell me the model of that. The only thing I can think of better than a ti Skagen is a ti Skagen with a carbon fiber face!!!

I love analog watches. It seperates the educated from the stupid, and to prove the point to my students that they need to learn seemingly trivial things, I just show them my watch when they ask me what time it is. Mine are not only analog, they don't have any numbers!
