Watch recommendations?

Asked by jackley (283points) February 22nd, 2009

I really love that watch, but at 5000$, it is not very accessible.

What watch do you like?

I like the 6 dollar special at Walmart. Never understood why people spend so much money on watches.

I’m a Timex girl myself. I like that they are durable (though I always break them) and have nice stop watch capabilities

I don’t wear watches anymore, but I have to have a watch to act as my alarm clock. I get one (currently Timex Ironman) that has multiple alarms. I actually wake up to the the chirp-chirp-chirp and I detest regular alarm clocks.

I have a coach watch that my company gave me for 25 years service. It’s really nice and so far I have had the same battery for 4 1/2 years. The cost was 500.00, but they probably have less expensive ones.

I’m not a fashion expert so you can take this with a grain of salt (and I’m sure you will)...I don’t know why that watch is $5000, it looks cheap to me. What is it made of? Unless it’s platinum, I don’t see where it’s worth that much. I’d rather have a simple Timex like mrswho.

The last time I spent any real money on a watch ($250) my husband lost it.

Get one of the Hello Kitty watches from McDondals. $2 and lunch. Great deal! I have a Sponge Bob watch I got there years ago. It still works great & I get comments on it all the time.

I actually most of the time wear a Timex that has two time zones on it. My son is serving in Iraq & its an easy way to keep up with what time it is where he is.

Get a portable sundial.

I have a Casio G Shock watch I wear at work. It’s solar powered and atomic, so it updates daily and you never have to adjust the time. I love it.

I have a couple of Diesel watches that are very nice and seem to last for a long time. My first one is five years into the same battery. It keeps good time, it’s stylish and it feels nice and heavy on my wrist.

Speaking of portable sundials, here’s a fun one: “link”:

Omega, have you lost it man?

jackley's avatar

The link I provided should give a good sense as to what I am looking for. Simple.

steve6's avatar

I don’t always go to links, so don’t expect everyone to go there. This should have been said long ago.

Swatch! Because I am a child of the 80s and used to wear 3 at a time. I think I still have some of my old ones somewhere.

I bought a $15 watch at Wal-Mart while I was waiting for a part to come in to fix my Seiko. That was 15 years ago. The Seiko died, but the WM watch lives on.
