I just graduated from high school and I wanted to get myself a small watch reminiscent of those generic clocks they have in all the classrooms. The Timex Easy Reader was the cheapest and classiest looking option.
It's exactly as the name describes, an easy reader. The dial is a very light silver which I'd rather be plain white but oh well. Day-date is a nice touch. Indiglo is also nice. It's just a nice little 35 mm watch. I also put a new strap on it if anybody was wondering.

A cheap Timex that I got on Amazon. Based on my hourly billing rate, I take shits that cost more than my watch.

u/MFAlurk · 11 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Get this one instead. Looks better.

u/aleatoric · 9 pointsr/gainit

That's weird, that has literally never happened to me. I'm 33 and I wear watches every day and none of them are over 38mm. My everyday beater that I wear to work/wherever is a Timex EasyReader (I've gone through a few at this point). Case diameter is 35mm, and there's not much feminine about that watch. If you wanted something nicer looking but similar you could get a Daniel Wellington which is has 36mm and 40mm options.

u/EnterTheMan · 8 pointsr/malefashionadvice

obligatory Timex Weekender.

Pick a color, any color.

For casual wear I'd suggest a nylon band, something like this one or this if feeling patriotic. This and this if brown leather is your thing. Get whatever your eye fancies.

Heck, just buy a watch with a clean silver face/bevel and then get two extra straps to go along with it.

u/ShayanC · 7 pointsr/malefashionadvice

You can never go wrong with a Timex Weekender or EasyReader. Those two are the most recommended on here, and you can probably find them cheap on Amazon. However, you would probably have better and more in-depth advice over at /r/watches.

Personally, I prefer the Timex Easyreader.

I'm thinking of buying these two jackets from Banana Republic (due to their Medium-Tall sizing which is my perfect fit).

What do you guys think of them?

u/SnoopyLupus · 4 pointsr/Watches

I would have thought something with black text on a white face, and big Arabic numerals. A Timex Easy Reader for instance.

u/[deleted] · 4 pointsr/malefashionadvice

For the chosen watch the original poster used, the watch has additional items that you did not list: date, separate hours minutes and seconds dials despite already including the standard hours, minutes, and seconds hands. All of these items already detract from what you call functional. (The only item I can see with additional purpose is the 24 hour dial and perhaps the date display).

Furthermore there is more to watches than just "telling time". A watch will get scratched, the bracelet may wear out before the actually "telling time" part does, and the battery (if there) will die. Maybe these other functions are not what you desire but there is still significant practical need for these items to be present.

To be clear, I'm not saying buy a fancy Rolex with automatic movement, a sapphire crystal, etc. I am wondering why Braun gets so much praise while a simple Timex doesn't.

u/crazindndude · 3 pointsr/Wet_Shavers

I have 3 watches, for different roles. They're all quite inexpensive because I'm not big ballin' just yet, but IMO look good and perform great.

  1. Seiko SNK809 "Seiko 5" - This is my dress watch. I swapped the band for a nice black leather with a butterfly clasp. Wear it pretty much only with a suit, which I've had to do a lot lately for interviews. Understated, elegant, and the only automatic I own.

  2. Timex Easy Reader - This is the workhorse. I bought a couple of nylon NATO bands and ditched the stock band. I wear this at work and pretty much in any casual setting. If I ding it or spill something on it, not the end of the world. Got it on sale for $15. Quartz movement and 10yr battery. Solid piece of work, classic Timex.

  3. Timex Expedition Chronograph - I like Timex. They make good stuff and it's functional. This is my most recent acquisition, Amazon had 50% off Timex watches for Cyber Monday. Also got a couple of NATO bands for this one - here's the black/grey stripe one I'm currently using. This watch kind of sits the middle ground of beater and dress. I wear it when going out for pretty much anything except work or formal stuff.
u/Imperfect-info_Game · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

If my arm is at my side it slides down just a bit but most of the time it stays about an inch away from the wrist. I've got the Timex Easy Reader with Brown band. Since it's not a heavy watch it doesn't slide down much.

u/Nik17 · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

The MFA cheap watch of choice, the Timex Easy Reader.

u/jettrscga · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Anyone know where I can find these? I was gonna go crazy and get the beeswax color.

And I also needed a watch. Was thinking about this one?

How am I doing?


u/percypersimmon · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

There are a lot of intro to suit things in the sidebar.

Here's a quick run-down from what I know:

You need two suits, navy and charcoal. Both should be single breasted, 2 button (unless you're over 6'5" then 3), with notch lapels. The cut should be slim without being skinny, but you can get away with a slimmer cut @ 18 than you can in your late 20s.

You can stay simple with white, but I like a lighter blue with a bigger check like this, but again, a matter of preference.

The white shirt makes it easier to pick out a tie. If you're doing plain white, or a solid then you really should get a striped/patterned tie or at the very least it needs to be textured (silk knit). If you were to do a checked/striped shirt then pick a different pattern for the tie (e.g. checked shirt gets a regimental striped tie). You may or may not want to do a pocket square for an interview. I personally wouldn't for something as traditionally conservative as law school.

I think you should look at yellow for a predominant tie color, it's good for interviews.

I would look into getting brown shoes if you are wearing a navy suit, get a decent pair too as you'll want these for several years as well (try to get some leather bottomed oxfords).

Match your belt to your new shoes. The watch is a little weird, just seems like a hybrid of too many differing styles. Something as simple as the (perennially recommended in MFA) Timex Easy Reader is cheap and effective. It'll balance the look without overpowering. Leather strap is also better in a suit than metal.

Get a nice haircut before as well (well a few days before so it doesn't look too new when you interview).

Buy the suit in enough time to take it to a tailor, this really isn't negotiable, you must do this even if it looks like it fits off the rack. There's always a tweak. Also be sure to wear the shoes/shirt/etc you're going to wear to the interview to the tailor when you go to get alterations.

u/MinnesotaMike29 · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

The best thing about the current outfit is the belt. Even that may be a little narrow/formal for the event, but it will do. You have four main items to focus in on this week. The most important being new shoes in a similar belt color and a watch. If you have the money new chinos and shirt.

Stafford Wing Tips for $42 are a good choice and can be found at your local JCPenny's. Read up on dress shoes and get something less formal. (Lighter shade of brown and brouging)

For the watch, a $27 Timex like this is a good deal and gives off a casual vibe. What ever watch you chose, get it from a reputable watch maker instead of a mall clothing brand. Timex, Seiko, Citizen.

Your current pants are baggier than what MFA typically recommends, an inch or two too long causing bunching by your ankles, and that is why you are seeing comments about poor fit. For your pants, I would get on the casual/slim end of the spectrum Gap's Lived in Slim khakis or a little more formal because of the leg creasing and fabric: Express Photographer. Pick a Light Brown, Lighter grey for less formal and a darker grey or navy blue for a little more formal.

For the Shirt I would highly recommend the Uniqlo OCBD. Sadly you may not receive in time so I would recommend J Crew's slim shirts. They fit similar but are a little more pricey. To make it more casual, get a shirt with a button collar, in a light summery color or patterned in a pleasing pattern like this.

Hope this helps and have fun next week!

u/jonkim27 · 3 pointsr/EDC

Timex Men's T20041 "Easy Reader" Brown Leather Strap Watch is the full name I believe. I bought it from Amazon via this link:

u/timmythetoole · 3 pointsr/Watches

Most are cheap and cheerful Chinese brands that have been known to lose time and break down which is why people like to buy known respected brands.

If you just want day and a date with that price range, why not Timex

u/Altare21 · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Timex with a brown/burgundy leather strap. Nice, simple watch at a good price.

u/thumpas · 2 pointsr/Watches

I've always thought the timex weekender looked a lot like the runwell. They're dirt cheap yet generally live up to their motto, "Takes a licking, keeps on ticking."

EDIT: Not nearly as cheap but I think this Christopher Ward looks similar to a runwell too.

EDIT2: Maybe this Wenger also? Never heard about them on this sub much, not sure about the quality.

u/ILoveYouSoVeryMuch · 2 pointsr/EDC
  • Water bottle: Klean Kanteen 64 ounce stainless steel - $30
  • Phone: I might buy a cheap MetroPCS phone w/ $25 plan
  • Wallet: Alpine Swiss - $12
  • Watches: I'd be happy with a black and brown Timex Easy Reader - $25 each. Fossil would be my next level, but what are some some even better watches?
  • Flashlight: This is hard because I love my light but it's discontinued. It would have to be a single AAA light with a reversible pocket clip. Maybe a Lenser P2 - $17
  • Protection: Condom case - $5 and Skyn condoms - $17
  • Protection: Glock 19 - $550 and Galco King Tuk - $60
  • More protection: Milt Sparks pocket magazine carrier - $63
  • Belts: Black and Brown Hanks Amish Belts - $36 each. Maybe I'd shop around, but they have been working for me.


  • Leatherman carabiner + bottle opener - $10
  • SOG keyknife - $11
  • Uncle Bill's tweezers - $10 for 2
  • A pill holder from Winn-Dixie... - ~$5
  • Reusable earplugs - $13

    I'm not sure if I want to carry a full-sized knife anymore but I think the Boker Plus Nano ($43) looks cool!

    That's just about my current EDC. I'm planning on eventually buying the carabiner, key knife, tweezers, and I'll probably go with a desantis pocket mag carrier opposed to the 3x more expensive Milt Sparks.

u/DirtyDanil · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

For timex I think I like their simple plain watches better.

However, in almost all of their watches, because they're cheap what you get is a bit of a stiff plain band.

u/CARTERsauce · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

See I bought a pair on sale at Urban (for like $40!) that were a 27 or 28, I can't remember, as a goal pair, but I had them for a while and I couldn't get them past my upper thighs so I ended up giving them to a girl, she moved away, and I know I'd fit into them now man, sucks.

A Timex is about $35 (Easy Reader, Weekender, Leather Weekender) unless you meant that until you can afford a quality watch, you're not gonna bother with one at all, which isn't really a bad idea.

u/Inertiatic · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

You say brown leather strap and white face. What do you have in mind for the rest of the watch? Preference on colour/material of the watch body itself? Were you wanting any sort of calendar functionality?

The Timex Easy Reader tends to be fairly popular around here. You might want to take a look at that.

u/crod242 · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I'm wearing this watch right now with a Bond-style strap I paid around $15 for from a merchant on Amazon. I have another in khaki from J. Crew. Both are 18mm. Do you plan on offering any in the smaller size? I know a lot of people would appreciate it. If your manufacturer is the same, can you also get hold of these?

u/thisisntadream · 2 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

I'm a big fan of the Timex Weekender or Easy Reader, personally. Although they are well under your budget, they are classy enough to work.

u/dymogeek · 2 pointsr/Watches

Not 1-for-1, but what about the Timex Easy Reader or this Mondaine?

u/TheDoktorIsIn · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Everyone's going to say the Timex Weekender but personally I prefer the Timex Easy Reader, here's my favorite.

u/withfries · 2 pointsr/Watches

>a good first everyday watch that would be fine in situations such as interviews

Formal and semi-formal situations? I'd go with a simple dress watch.

For budget and great looking, consider a Timex Easy Reader, $30, it's a white dial watch with leather strap, great for what you're going for.

What's your budget? Around the hundreds, I'd go with an Orient Bambino, it goes for around $120-$150. It's very classic, minimalist, has a dome crystal, and is not very distracting. It's an automatic too. There's 4 versions of the Bambino. I personally like version 1, and version 2 with blue hands.

A little higher, Timex has been doing some great reissues. The Timex Marlin, $200, is pretty understated but eye catching. It's a manual wind movement watch with a call back design. This will probably be my next watch.

Lastly, Tissot has some great automatic's. The Tissot Visodate, $400, is a fantastic watch for the price.

All these watches can be had for much cheaper if you're open to looking at the gray market (watch exchange forums, ebay, etc.). I hope this helps, at the very least to show what's out there. Cheers and best wishes!

u/Jumping_Candy_Cane · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Thanks for the detailed reply! I don't know that I could easily get down to 200. I'm a bit more muscular than the average guy. That said, I'd like to get down to 220. Less weight makes rock climbing easier.

I don't know how I feel about the Clarks. I think I'd feel weird wearing them. I kinda like the look of these. Do you think I could pull them off?

Took a look at the weekender line up. I like this one. Thoughts?

What color shirt would I need?

EDIT: oh and I know I need a haircut. Been putting that off for a while..

u/nascraytia · 2 pointsr/Watches

Timex Men's T20041 Easy Reader Brown Leather Strap Watch

30 bucks, meets all of your requirements except for the black leather band, but you can just buy a black leather band.

This one is probably the best choice if you’re comfortable removing the bracelet. SNK377, 37mm

u/dark180 · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

nah, that would probably look tacky going with the style of the picture,
take a look at this post

the watch is clean and simple and you can get it for 27 $
and if you get the watch straps it adds more flexibility to it

u/shyguythrowaway · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice
u/hayashirice911 · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Yeah, this was my first watch as well and it seems to go well with almost anything I wear.I wear mostly plain t-shirts, flannels, sweaters with jeans or shorts and chucks so I look like a pretty normal teenager.

Not to mention how cheap it is.


u/telor_ · 2 pointsr/pics
u/wags_01 · 2 pointsr/EDC

Watches under $70:

u/90daysandout · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

My first impression is that it reminds me of fishing watches - and this is largely because of that suede brown band with a visible logo.

The entire watch has a very rugged look and the face itself is not as classic and simplistic as the weekender or easy-reader. So if you're going for a more day-to-day casual watch I'd definitely recommend the other two.

As for choosing between the weekender and easy-reader: the easy-reader is 3mm smaller in diameter and has a less cluttered face than the weekender. I'd say this version with the brown leather strap is a good bet.

Hope that helps.

u/reachskm100 · 2 pointsr/Watches

u/SlackerZeitgeist · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Haha. Whoops. The silver one in the picture looks like the one I have, which is on Amazon here.

u/mattbeermusic · 1 pointr/Watches

dude. thank you so much! this helped out a LOT. was actually gonna buy that weekender exactly because i figured it had the leather strap already with it. thanks for the info

EDIT: sorry a lot of questions. think the easy reader would be a good buy? preferably this I know it's a bit smaller than the weekender but I has a white face and dark brown leather strap already. plus it's below 30 bucks. i might just pick this one up

u/meatwerd · 1 pointr/Watchexchange

I had a weekender too and ended up getting rid of it for the same reason. I ended up with this

It's a lot quieter and the day/date is nice. I ended up stealing the nylon strap from the weekender.

u/kerodean · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I've got the same one with the original leather band.

u/duhduhduhduhduh · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

It looks like the Timex Easy Reader I have.

u/NotTrespassing_Yet · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

This Timex, or this one. I like the black face on the second but the first seems to go with any attire.

u/timyeller · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I have the same wrists as you. I've always been embarrassed by big watches. I bought this one and I love it. It's pretty small, but not feminine and my skinny wrist looks fine in it. I bought it at Walmart.

u/MisterBilly · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I have this Timex Easy Reader and can never hear it ticking unless it's right next to my ear.

Some basic characteristics of the most everyday watch you can get: no flashiness, silver-colored metal only if there's any metal, simplicity in design, lightweight, and any kind of band except black leather.

Some of MFA's most often mentioned basics: The Timex Weekender, the Timex Easy Reader, and Citizen Eco Drive(you would probably want to replace the black watch band with a brown leather one).

You're not limited to these, however. Some personal favorites are the Orient Sky, the Orient Union, Skagen, and Seiko.

Don't take my examples as a firm limitation, however, there's literally hundreds of good watches out there.

u/ShartyMcPeePants · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

This is what I've got and I think it looks really good for the price. Kind of a similar look to what you posted.

Its basically a weekender with a leather brown strap. I am constantly receiving compliments on it.

u/lessthanjake · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

Thank you very much! I like the watches quite a bit. I was looking at this one in particular. Yay or nay?

u/notaneggspert · 1 pointr/Watches

Right now this $10 Casio is the only slightly dressy watch I have.

I like it but the crystal (plastic?) has gotten more and more scratched from general wear. I don't think I want a nylon band since the watch will get wet frequently if I wear it while working.

I don't have a lot of money to spend but would like to get a slightly nicer analog watch with a date function for under $100. I plan to use this watch while bartending so it will be splashed in triple sinks for a few hours every day. But I might just wear the Casio I have now while working since it's already slightly dickerd and only $10.

So far I've found these two through Amazon:

$21 Tonnier

$29 Timex Easy Reader

If someone had a gun to my head I'd buy the Timex but I'm not in a rush to buy and need to do more research.

I'll link a few more to get an idea of the style I'm looking for. Definitely looking for a smaller watch that won't get in the way or snagged on stuff.


$22 Biden

$20 Curren

$24 VAVC

Didn't do much research into those last couple but just linking the style I'm looking for and I'll add some more on. I like high contrast black/white faces but I'm also cool with red/brown/blue accents but the more color neutral the better.

u/Killrabbit · 1 pointr/Watches

What are you guys' opinions on this Timex Easy Reader? Timex Men's Easy Reader Brown Leather Watch - T20041

u/bluegarfield · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Any of one, two, three, four for a casual daily watch, like with jeans/shorts and tee? I will wear them to work as well, but dress code is casual so yeah. I have really small wrist (about 45mm width) and metal bracelet feel massive and heavy on my wrist, so I guess have to do with leather or nylon. Not sure if the nylon strap look too childish or look out of place with the rest of the outfit though :(

u/ContinentalRektfast · 1 pointr/AskMen

you might like some of the Timex watches, these two are my favorite

i've gotten a lot of compliments on the 2nd one (which i own). the only problem i find with it is the the band is kinda wonky, but it's nothing i'd worry about. for the first few weeks i thought it was a lot more fragile than it was, but i found that the trick was to just have it 1 notch less than too tight, so that it fit on but it had room to move as well.

the band problem is remedied by the 1st one, but imo the band looks sexier on the 2nd.

timex is really one of my favorite watch companies because they have a lot of watches with the aesthetic i like.

if you want, i can post a picture of what the watch looks like on my wrist. i have very small wrists too and the fact that i found one that i love surprised me.

u/whitepangolin · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

This or this is what you want.

u/swatch_crotch · 1 pointr/Watches

No problem. Here's one more idea, before I head out. It's the Timex Easy Reader. Analog so easy to set, great contrasting hands, however it's a little bit smaller at 35mm. Just another one to consider.

u/h83r · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

smaller knot and brown pants instead of the blue on blue.

Edit: We can't see your shoes!

I agree with /u/mywifebroughtmehere, a watch is a good accessory. I found some really cheap ones on amazon that are simple and clean looking. I didn't want to buy expensive watches until I had some cheap ones to learn what I want on an expensive watch.

cheap watch 1

cheap watch 2

I see 3 different patterns within a 6in circle from each other. I think you would be better off with a light green pocket square to match your tie. That checkered part on your shirt is weird with the plaid, but I doubt it's visible much when the jacket is on.

u/chickennoodlegoop · 1 pointr/Watches

Thanks! I like the SNK809 and SNKE063 and they definitely seem like an upgrade to my black Weekender that I'd definitely be interested in, but I'm ideally looking for an upgrade to my white Easy Reader… any ideas?

u/JacobPalmer · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I was in need of a brown leather-strapped watch (and by need, I mean I just wanted one pretty bad) so did some reading up on this one. It's a Timex Easy Reader that I purchased here. I considered the Timex Weekender after reading a GQ article on it, but I wanted a leather strapped watch so I went with this.

I'm very happy with it, especially for the price. It is really clean and didn't expect this sort of quality from Timex.

u/narcism · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Hey man! Do these two items definitely fit together? 1 2 The band seems like its 19mm, the watch allows for 18mm.

Is it easy to change the band?

u/regular_gonzalez · 1 pointr/Watches

That'll be a pretty tight price point for something "cool". As far as sizing, look in the watch description for the case size. 40mm or smaller will work fine on a small wrist. From there, I'd go to Amazon and search Men's Timex Watch -- that's one of two companies who make decent watches in the $20 range. The other is Casio but they tend to make bigger watchs that might be too large for your wrist.

Something like will be a classy looking every day option and it's well sized for your wrist. If you want a digital readout, you could go with something like for a retro look, or something like for more features.

u/gridcitykid · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

u/heyitsusman · 1 pointr/Watches

This watch-face is called "Das Slick" and was made available by a developer named "jdixl" on the Pebble app store. Its online link is available here. The developer did a great job of all the graphics, animations, and proportions of the different pieces. Unfortunately I have not been able to find any contact info for jdixl, but hope I can still perhaps find a watch that was his inspiration for this face.

As Pebble products are in a tricky state of being these days, I have been looking for a different watch to switch to. This watch-face was my favourite on my pebble watch, so finding something close or identical would be really awesome.

If you don't think you know any relevant info... I would still appreciate your advice. My taste is more towards slim and simple watches, I like Timex Weekender watches, and recently ordered one with an even slimmer profile called Timex Easy Reader Day-Date. So far the Timex Easy Reader is the closest I've found to the Das Slick face. Perhaps you can give me some suggestions or ideas based on that info & the picture in this post.

Thanks for your advice and time guys.

I just wish they carried this one.

Just ordered my first nice suit yesterday from suit supply, and now I'm trying to get a watch to go with it. The suit is Navy blue, and so I've been trying to find a simple budget watch (for under $150) to go with it. Some of the watches I've been looking at online are

Almost a year ago I made a post about how “working man’s” watches need to be recognized too. I posted the super beat up watch I wore to rock climb and it got a surprising amount of love. The next guy up to the task is nothing but a Timex Easy Reader with a black nylon NATO strap, and has been nothing short of reliable, functional, and even fashionable when necessary. Every feature on the watch, even down to the strap does not go without a use.

When in the midst of time-sensitive and sometimes dangerous activities like rock climbing, checking the time needs to be as fluid and easy as possible. The watch itself also needs to be inexpensive, lightweight, and durable. You may think this is a tall order, but surprisingly, Timex’s lower end watches fit the bill. This is why I chose the Weekender last time, and it’s why the Easy Reader has proved itself an amazing next choice. The giant digits prove its namesake and the bright red second hand provides nothing but reading clarity. The lightweight case and durable nylon strap allow me to climb with confidence and efficiency, as if the watch weren’t even there. The day/date feature is the cherry on top, making this thing a virutal wrist-calendar without sacrificing simplicity and legibility.

Oftentimes when I am out on a climbing trip I like to find a place to swim as well. Naturally, Timexes are freaking cockroaches, and the “WR 30M” label need fool no-one. This thing is straight up waterproof up to at least ten feet. And when camping, I make frequent use of the indiglo feature, as I hammock camp and there is nothing more frustrating than trying to reach for your phone in pitch darkness while stuffed in an Eno.

I’ve even worn the watch “out on the town” and have still gotten compliments on its understated and universally applicable design characteristics. In terms of fashion, this watch is a chameleon. It compliments anything I wear it with.

If you are an outdoorsman/woman but don’t like the gaudier sports watch options marketed to the outdoors, trust in the basics. They’ll do the job just as well without making you look like there’s a Squirtle strapped to your wrist.

I've found that the easy reader is just as stylish, significantly quieter, and displays the date and day of the week at the exact same price as the weekender (~$30). Not sure why it's not more popular around here.

Both have indiglo and are water resistant too, and are water resistant up to 30m. I have accidentally taken my easy reader swimming before and it continues to tick (quietly!)

This Timex

I just bought this the other day and am really loving it. Simple, yet elegant. Only drawback is fairly loud ticking that's noticeable at night when you're sleeping.

I was in need of a brown leather-strapped watch (and by need, I mean I just wanted one pretty bad) so did some reading up on this one.
It's a Timex Easy Reader that I purchased here. I considered the Timex Weekender after reading a GQ article on it, but I wanted a leather strapped watch so I went with this.

I'm very happy with it, especially for the price. It is really clean and didn't expect this sort of quality from Timex.

Hi I have small wrists as well, I just purchased a Timex Easyreader,, along with the NATO bond strap,, total is like 40 bucks and it looks great! the face is 35mm, perfect for smaller wrists like ours, hope this helps.

I was shopping for watches this morning!

I think I'm going to get the Timex Easy Reader because of its simple design and clean lines. Plus, it's sub-$30.

However, I'm also drooling over this Kate Spade watch that I can in no way afford.

EDIT: Also, it looks like the timex watch is brass, not nickel.
