I was actually about to pick up this Timex before I saw the Citizen. However there were more than a few reviews stating that the watch was excessively loud, something that I'd really like to avoid.
If you can afford it, buy some decent wrist watches and display them in a modified red igloo container with pretty lining with a note that says "Thanks for watching after me."
I like this watch design, but that's my personal opinion.
A cheap, reliable, do it all watch is timex. The straps are easily replaceable so you can buy straps to customize a little too. R/watches hails rolex, timex and seiko as the ideal 3 brands. Timex being the cheapest, rolex being the most expensive obviously.
Edit: This is the particular watch I'm talking about.
Timex Unisex T2P495 Weekender Oversize Brown Leather Slip-Thru Strap Watch [link]
It's reliable, light, easy to read, crazy comfortable and keeps time better than almost anything else i own and it's cheap. Plus the leather strap matches everything.
I work in a pizza place and the cornmeal has destroyed far "nicer" watches in short time. This thing has lasted through daily use for a year now though.
Yeah, the Weekender is the one I ended up getting. I really like it, it fulfills the two tasks I require of a watch: 1) telling time and 2) not looking terrible. It's cheap enough (not $15 like I originally said, I paid $35) that you don't really even need to get it repaired, you could just buy another one. If it has sentimental value for you though, you do you.
Has anyone seen both this and the 40mm version linked below? I'm curious which size you think looks better in person:
40mm with leather band
Not the all black everything watch I was looking for, but I really like that.

I am still looking for a black faced watch. The Citizen Eco Drive Stiletto caught my eye, but it is a little pricier. I'm still weighing my options.
I live in Seattle, WA.
All prices include shipping.
here you go op
this is the exact one
yeah it's this one.
Thanks for asking, I didn't notice how few images there were on the Amazon product listing. Here's a photo of the opened clasp showing the notches and various adjustment pieces.
The spring bars seem to be 20mm, and the band itself is 24mm wide. I'm wondering if a replacement mesh band with a magnetic clasp might make sense, though I've never used one. I'd be open to trying a NATO/Zulu strap, but I'm new to wearing watches and not sure this case would look good with that style.
I got the watch used for $46 (apparently about what it's worth given that it's a Chinese-made quartz watch), and plan on using it to replace a Timex Weekender that I currently use as my everyday/beater watch.
Honestly the leather band it comes with is actually pretty solid, I've had the lighter brown leather strap for a few years now and it is still holding up very nicely.
I think the lighter brown strap looks a little better than the darker one but they both look great and for the price you cant beat em.
Under $100, with that particular style, I'd recommend the Timex Weekender. You can throw on a NATO strap if you can't find a Weekender with a band you particularly like, but if you just search for "Timex" in men's watches you may find a similar model you like.
If you like the look of the chronographs, though (that's the first watch in your pictures), you can get this watch and buy a leather strap with the money you're saving.
Make sure to check out the customer images in the reviews for both of those; despite their price; they look pretty slick.
I might just go with this one [link]
I've got the Timex Weekender 40 and I love it.
Here ya go.
I was actually just looking at something simple like this.
people here are kinda snobby....if it isn't a mechangical (automatic, smooth second hand, not ticking) they typically dont like them.
I personally really like the look of this watch....for $60 its probably not bad. quality is what you would expect from a $60 watch...expect the glass to be just regular glass (not sapphire or even mineral crystal), expect the writing/markings to be decent but not great, dont expect the lume to be good at all. and expect the "leather" band to be cheap and stiff.
good beginner watches for under $100 are not hard to come by.
Timex has some nice (and similar looking to this) watches for under $50
dont worry about the straps, they can be swapped easily or purchased with other ones.
Casio is another good cheaper brand
if you want to look into mechanicals, a really nice entry level mechanical watch brand is Orient...they have a slew of different styles, and they are a pretty well respected watch brand on this sub. fit and finish are really nice for the cash. I picked up my Orient mako for under $100 last year with a metal bracelet, and bought this leather strap from clockworksynergy.com for $12.
Recently bought a Timex Weekender off of amazon for $44. Not exactly my cup of tea, and didn't buy it recently enough to be return it. I've worn it 2 times and there's nothing wrong with it. The face appears off white in this picture because of the lighting, it's actually white. Comes with the standard brown genuine leather strap. $35 shipped, no paypal fees if you go friends and family.
