Citizen Men's Eco-Drive Brown Leather Strap Watch with Date, AW1361-10H [link]
I wasn't a fan of the factory band so I replaced it immediately with a cheaper leather one from Amazon. The one show originally had more metal rings on it that I removed for better looks/comfort.
I also like this guy, but it seems large, and I'm wary of the solar mechanism failing/ repairs

Something like this.
I have a this watch and i need a new leather strap for it. Does anyone have any recommendations of a good leather strap to go with this watch?
I haven't purchased one yet but I know a few people who own either of these watches and I really enjoy them. From what I've seen they seem to be very durable as well.

If he's not a watch guy, you generally want to go quartz. He'll probably hate the watch if he takes on off on a Friday and finds it dead on Monday. I can't think of much:
Citizen Avion? 45mm, Eco-drive (as long as it gets enough light, the battery should last 10-15+ years). It might have too many numbers, though.
Citizen Nighthawk? 42mm, Eco-drive. You'll have to replace the metal bracelet with a leather band, but that shouldn't be hard.
Here's two similar-styled Citizens for less than $200:
As others have said, it can be as much as 30 minutes per MONTH (or maybe more, in some uncommon cases), and not per day. In this price range, many (most?) mechanical watches are generally within 5-15 seconds per day, which translates into ~2.5-7.5 minutes per month. For those of us with mechanical watches, we've just become accustomed to resetting our watches every week or two.
I'm not that familiar with quartz watches, so take the following with a chunk of salt. Quartz watches aren't favored here, often because they're uninteresting or overpriced. Quartz watches supposedly often only cost $10-$20 to make (maybe less), but often retail for much more. Some of the price increase is justified by the fact that not many people buy watches nowadays. However, a lot of the additional cost appears to be due to the "brand name". Some watches have obscenely high MSRP, but routinely sell for, say, "80% off" prices, just to make it sound like you're getting a deal. The QA can be spotty, too.
I mentioned the wrist circumference, because these are fairly large watches (45mm). 7" wrists should be able to wear these without looking too large, and 6.5" wrists might be able to wear these, but that's iffy. If you're not sure about your wrist size, take a piece of string, lightly wrap it around your wrist (wherever you wear your watch), and then measure the length with a ruler.
From the reviews, there seems to be occasional QA issues, though. I'm not sure what sizes they are.
If you have a smaller wrist, look at their 38mm watches.
Thanks for sharing! I'm trying to decide between this one and this Citizen Eco-Drive. Decisions, decisions...
Yea bc of budget reasons that is what I'm leaning towards. The other I have in mind is this Citizen but I'd have to wait for a good sale to still fit the other items in the budget.
But front runner would be the Seiko 5 with new strap , like you said for versatility. Id like everyone to be able to wear it beyond the wedding if they want.
I got this one from the WUS forum
