Just for purchasing sake. This is not "the" cocktail time which is model SARB065. This is a close presage version model SRPB43. You can see the price differences as well as the difference in the faces.

u/zzzaz · 150 pointsr/malefashionadvice

2 Lands End OCBDs (One white, one Blue ~$40 each (on sale) $80

2 Lands End Gingham or Plaid shirts ~$40 each ~$80

2 Lands End Tailored Fit Chinos (1 in light beige, one in khaki ~$40/each (on sale)) ~$80

1 pair Clarks Desert Boots in Beeswax ~$70

1 Navy Surplus Pea coat ~$40 at a Navy Surplus store

3 crew-neck Sweaters (different colors @ ~$50/each) ~$150

Levis 514s, dark wash or raw ~$50

LL Bean blutcher moc (not as ubiquitous as Sperry's) ~$70

Bean boots (For winter or snow) ~$90

Timex Easy Reader ~$25

Allen Edmonds Park Ave. (in brown) ~$200

That leaves you $75. Go to Target and buy plain short and long sleeve tee's from the Merona line and a few pairs of nice Merona socks.

That will be a very simple wardrobe that can be dressed up or down and should cover all of the basics that a 20 year old needs. The next pickups will be a blazer, more shirts, and more sweaters for variety. Remember that fit is everything; if you are slim, get the LE tailored fit, or take them to a tailor.

I really like the Seiko 5 automatic. It's a great looking watch, it's an automatic, and it's well priced.

u/PodcastJunkie · 67 pointsr/nextfuckinglevel

I think I’m watching it on the Casio Calculator Watch but the screen is way too small to be sure. What show is it?

u/PromptCriticalSOE · 60 pointsr/Planetside
u/Teckor14 · 53 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Both of those watches are hardly what I'd call 'big boy watches'. Frankly they look really low quality, fragile and with expansion bands they will not be comfortable. Sorry if that's kinda harsh but in terms of watches less is often more and something really gaudy (especially that cheap) just looks like trash.

There's no shame in being on a budget, especially when you're just getting out of college, but you're much better off with something a little more subtle, like an easy reader. That's understated enough that it'll look good casually or when dressed up (and it's dirt cheap). Timex expedition and weekender are also nice but are perhaps more casual than what you're looking for. If you really want something dressier the Seiko 5 is a really high quality automatic watch for the price.

Edit: To answer the second part of your question, watch should usually match your belt and shoes (especially if it's brown or black), with black looking more formal. Silver watches go with just about anything.

price: $27-$50

Movement: QUARTZ

Style: Casual

Size: 38mm

Link: Amazon

Description: The best value watch available in my opinion. Looks pretty good, lasts a long time, water resistant to 30 feet. Can't beat for a beater watch or just an everyday sorta thing

u/007T · 48 pointsr/FellowKids

Best shirt? That honor belongs to Three Wolf Moon, the reviews speak for themselves.

u/tPRoC · 48 pointsr/malefashionadvice
u/Xamanicos · 45 pointsr/Watches

SEIKO SNK803/05/07/09 and SNKM95

Price: $40-$65

Movement: Automatic, 7S26

Style: Casual, Military/Field

Size: 37mm not including the crown

Link: Amazon

This is a fantastic automatic that can be had for as little as $40 if you catch it on sale. It's on the small side at 37mm diameter, 11mm thickness, and comes with an 18mm canvas strap that matches the dial color. It has a hardlex crystal, display case back, day/date complication, luminous hands and hour markers, 30m water resistance and a blasted steel finish.

u/hugh_jewnit · 44 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Seiko 5 automatic watch is great if you don't have massive wrists. I love mine.

Edit: Also, shop through so a portion of your purchase goes to charity!

So I had an alert setup for a Timex Chronograph I broke that I got on a deal a while ago, and I just got alerted and saw that quite a few models are at pretty low prices close to the lowest price on CamelCamelCamel. The one I just re-bought is $.05 more expensive than the lowest price ever on Camel. I don't think these are gonna go that much cheaper.

Black and Tan Strap $37.31

Black and Brown Strap $42.49

White and Navy Nato Strap $35.04

Alpine and Brown Strap $37.31

Alpine and Tan Nato Strap $37.31

Black and Brown Strap Expedition non chronograph $25.94

Cream and Brown Strap Expedition non chronograph $25.94

Cream and Green Strap Expedition non chronograph $28.21

My life changed forever the day I started wearing my three wolf moon shirt. I instantly grew chest hair and full beard. Picking up chicks from Walmart is a thing of the past. I now get them wherever I go.

As a clarifier of what tesoro said:

  • "hardened mineral" is pretty much the cheapest stuff on the market. You won't expect much more out of a $50 watch, but the upgrades are sapphire or hardlex (which start at watches around $100).
  • 3 atm water resistance means NOTHING. I would be careful washing your face while wearing it, and don't even think about taking it in the shower.

    These are the same specs as the weekender. In addition, there's no mention of lume. 40mm face with this design will throw it in the ring with the rest of the gaudily large fashion watches nowadays.

    How does this beat a $60 watch with lume, automatic movement, and 20atm water resistance rating? or a $65 watch that comes with a bracelet?

    For twice the price of the weekender, are you really getting a whole lot more with this?

DW-5600E is the basic (but still great!) no frills square.
Tells the time, has alarms and stop watches, counts up and down, an auto backlight, and calendar to 2039. It's dive rated to 200 meters, and has an electronic luminescent backlight, much like indiglo if you have a Timex.

GWM-5610 is all of the above, along with world time, and has the two biggest features for some: solar charging and atomic radio syncing.
For many, this is the THE "square." It's robust, self sufficient, and has a classic look without looking too dated or too ultra modern. The display is slightly different than the 5600E.

GLX-5600 is most similar to the budget 5600E above but has an additional bit of display for tide and moon information. Still as tough, still as cool looking.

GLS-5600 is a more recent, stylish variant of the 5600E. It come in 4 neat colors (black, white, green, and sand) and features a moving seconds complication on the face. Also, it features a "Low Temp LCD," this LCD is rated to go to -20 C. Honestly as you're wearing it on your person, a normal 5600E can go pretty cold as it also has your body heat. Possibly most importantly for some people, this model comes standard with strap adapters and a really comfy clothes NATO strap standard.

GWM-5610-1BJF is the Japanese only, blacked out model of the radio/solar 5610. These can be imported pretty easily through Amazon, so of cost isn't an issue, don't let the import bother you. The Japanese models also usually feature slightly more supple, softer resin straps and a screwback case, like on a mechanical time piece.

While not exclusively a 5600, if you need a big honkin' watch, the GX-56 is basically a thick 5600. Huge buttons and case, has all of the features of a 5610 with a cool moving seconds graphic like the GLS.

Many of these can be found in various colors and feature variants, so as a recap/guide:

5600 - standard square G Shock

5610 - radio/solar square model

GLX - surfing/tide model

GLS - stylish colors, comes with NATO strap

GX-56 - huge "King" G Shock

BB after model number - blacked out model

JF after model number - Japan import

Hopefully this helped. I had a lot of fun making this.

And here's the one that all the Avengers replace their uniforms with at the end of Infinity War

u/PetruZx · 32 pointsr/Watches

This is the watch that I got when I took "studenten" (A swedish word for graduating from the gymnasium). I've never before owned a proper watch and I was looking for a dress watch. When I first saw the Seiko on Amazon, I was put off by the picture as it seemed like it had a matte finish (similar to the snk809 and it's variants) and a very blue tint on the face of the watch. But watching customer images and videos had me chocked at how beautiful the watch and especially the face is. What I was concerned about was the thickness. Because I had never owned a proper watch before, I was unsure how a 13mm thick watch would look on my small wrist. But to my surprise, it's perfect.

I'm in love with my Seiko and I couldn't be happier with the watch.

u/MangyCanine · 30 pointsr/Watches

Casio MDV106-1A

Price: ~$40-$50 ($69.95 MSRP)

Movement: Quartz, analog

Style: diver, analog

Size: 48.5 x 44.2 x 12.1mm (from Casio's website)

Link: Casio page, Amazon page


Inexpensive quartz watch that resembles a Rolex Sub. Resin band, 200m WR, and a screw-down crown.

u/punkrockextravaganza · 30 pointsr/Watches

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.

u/Fitnessthrowawhey · 28 pointsr/movies

The designs are based off these I believe:

  1. Casio Calculator Watch

  2. Rolex Submariner

  3. Casio F91w

  4. Timex Weekender
u/Mcflyguy · 28 pointsr/BuyItForLife

A Seiko 5 automatic is a better "lifetime" choice in my opinion. Change the Doc's to Solovair too.

u/Frith_Inle · 26 pointsr/Watches

Hey nice looking watch man! All I know is that it uses a Japanese Miyota quartz movement, a common quartz movement in today's watches. Nixon is mostly associated with skaters. surfers, snowboarders, and other street sports of similar kind. As others have said though, they do not get much love around /r/Watches because they are considered a fashion brand. My first watch was a Nixon Timeteller years ago. It was good, then I lost it. Then I found it again recently.

Watch collecting can be as expensive or as cheap as you want it to be. If you lurk around this sub for a while you'll see lots of different styles in all different price ranges. I love watches, but at the point in my life that I'm at right now (that being a broke college kid), I promised myself to stay in the sub $200 range for the time being. Learn the difference between quartz and mechanical first if you don't already, then here are some commonly referenced budget options out there:


Seiko SNK809 $75

Seiko SKX007K $179

Seiko SKX009K1 $189


Casio F91W $12

Casio MDV106 $45

Casio G-Shock

Casio Calculator Databank $43


Timex Weekender Chrono $50

Timex Expedition Field Chrono $45

Citizen Eco-Drive Promaster Diver $150 also in blue

Citizen Chronograph $120

Tissot Everytime $130-$150


Swatch $30-$$$

There are so many more too! It really pulls you in once you scratch the surface. There's something for everybody here. Welcome to the hobby (cough addiction cough)!

Edit I always forget to mention the Vostok Amphibia. It's a Russian dive watch, built like a tank, and there are many bezel/dial combos. Found on Ebay for about $70.

Those are usually reffered to as Bauhaus-Design or Dessau.

Bulova Men's 96B104 should be the cheapest.

u/AGS16 · 23 pointsr/Watches

So you're the reason the SNK809 is $103 on Amazon and I had to buy mine from some sketchy website...

u/brofession · 22 pointsr/everymanshouldknow

I ctrl-f'd 'watch' and got nothing, so here goes my rant:


Yes, your phone can tell you the time. But being able to turn your wrist over to give or check the time is so much more elegant than fishing through your pocket, pulling out your keys, putting them back in, digging out your phone, turning your screen on for a split second, turning it off and then stuffing it back into your pocket.

Your watch doesn't have to be crafted by a master artisan in the Swiss Alps (but that's cool if it is) and it doesn't have to cost more than a small house. You can have a simple Timex for $30 on Amazon with a NATO band that can easily be replaced with another band of any color or pattern you want. This Skagen is wafer-thin and looks at home at the office or out on the town. Prefer an automatic but don't want to break the bank? Bang. You can even get a diver that most people would mistake for a Rolex/much more expensive watch for less than $50.

Wearing a nice watch ties together a wardrobe. It's the cherry on top of a sundae, the salt (or sugar) on the rim of a margarita. So wear one.

u/[deleted] · 22 pointsr/AskReddit

I disagree about graphic t-shirts, band t-shirts, and cargo shorts. Your beef with cargo shorts probably arises from everybody in the fucking world wearing them, so they're a bit overused, and sometimes too baggy. I'd say don't wear only cargo shorts, and don't wear them with the camo pattern.

Graphic tees are way to versatile to say, don't wear them! Lol, no one is wearing graphic tees to try and look badass (but don't wear skulls on your shirts for the love of god). 19, 20 is not to old to wear graphic tees. But there is a range. If it looks like someone threw up on your shirt, then no, don't wear that. However, there's nothing wrong with liking a band and wearing a shirt by them I think. The ones I don't like are the black background rock ones with 90% of the front taken up with some graphic and ones that have tour dates on them.

also this is a fucking awesome shirt, but I wouldn't recommend wearing it.

This however is better.

Funny t-shirts can come off as lame, but if you like it, then get it, wear it. Today I saw a kid in this as a t-shirt. I would not recommend that. This is alright, still not the coolest thing, but it can make you happy to wear it, and other to see it, so why not.

Not sure what is wrong with pac-sun, they have good shorts that fit this guys specifications, and some other good stuff. Just don't get the Volcom/Element label stuff, especially if it looks like someone threw up on it.

Don't wear too skinny jeans if you have no leg muscle.

He suggests wearing these and I've got to disagree. He's far off on the shoes in general. I think I have a better feel for you, and wearing dress shoes around is probably not your style. Get some sandals that aren't super cheap. I don't see anything wrong with New Balance, I'm sure the guy I'm replying too will, but only people who are really into shoes are going to look down on people who are wearing New Balance or the like. Just get something simple that isn't 20 different colors and patterns.

V-necks WILL make you look like a douchebag, the not so dipped collar, just a little bit to some people, and never, ever, ever the super low V-necks

u/S2S2S2- · 22 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

This one is also on sale and a lot smaller for people who don’t like big watches. Citizen Men's Eco-Drive Stainless Steel Watch with Day/Date display, BM8180-03E

[Casio, MDV-106]

Price: $38.38 + free shipping on Amazon

Movement: quartz

Style: Sports/Diver
Size: 45mm case, 12mm height, 22mm Lugs. (the size specs on the Amazon page are wrong, it measures 45mm, not the 40mm that is listed.)


Description: This is a great looking, and high quality every day beater, diver watch. it looks great in person, and for the price, you get a lot. 200M water resistance, screw down crown, screw down case back, uni-directional bezel. and a date window. Im very happy with this watch, and am happy to add it to this list as a great value for under $50

u/captainNematode · 21 pointsr/OkCupid

Thanks! The individual items were:

Shoes: AE Walnut Strands

Pocket Square: Golden Bronze Royal Silk

3-Piece Suit (bought as separates): Bar III Midnight Blue

Boutonnière: This gold thing from Amazon

Tie: Bigass Paisley from thetiebar, though I can't seem to find it now...

Shirt: Costco Slim Fit Light Blue

Undies (lol): ExOfficio Boxer Briefs and Airism V-neck

Socks: Target Anchor Socks

Belt: Got at a thrift store a long time ago...

Watch: Timex Expedition

I bought everything over the course of a year waiting for sales, so I think in total (including tailoring) all of the above cost me around $500-$600, though a lot of it can be reused on other occasions.

Her dress, meanwhile, cost around $50 + ~$130 in (somewhat dishonest...) tailoring, $20 for the shoes, $45 for the circlet, and $0 in borrowed jewelry. She did all of her own makeup and hair and stuff so those costs were fairly trivial. She also knitted the shawl herself for around $25 worth of yarn from Michaels and around 25 hours in time while we watched tv some evenings.

u/phaedrus_kc · 20 pointsr/Watches

Allow me to propose Seiko's Cocktail Time!

More watch for less money, and I prefer the dial... a bit less stuffy.

u/robotic_lemur · 20 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

If I were you I'd check out JCPenny if you can today.

They have several non-iron Stafford OCBD's for $15. I bought one of their fitted shirts and it fits and feels amazing. They also have gingham broadcloth shirts on clearance for $11. You can spend around $50 and pick up 4 nice shirts for work from them.

While you're there I'd also check out the Stafford wingtips if that's what you're looking for. Right now they're $50 and are widely accepted as one of the best buys for the $$.

If you're fine with chinos you should swing by H&M if there's one near you. I picked up two slim fit chinos (not skinny) for $15 each, and they fit me very well. I had to size down a size, but the fit is on point.

Shoes shirt and pants should be first I think. Once you pick up the shoes you want, you'll want a matching belt. At your budget I think I'd try somewhere like Marshalls for a cheap $5 belt that would last you a few seasons, until you make enough to buy a better quality one.

If you don't have to wear a tie, maybe consider investing in a watch. The Timex Weekender gets circlejerked a lot, but I think it's a wonderful starter watch. You can buy a couple of straps eventually, and that would let you have another piece to help rotate work outfits.

To recap:

  • 4 shirts for $50 at JCPenny

  • Stafford Wingtips for $50 at JCPenny

  • 2 pairs of chinos from H&M for $30

  • A starter belt for ~$5

  • Timex Weekender for ~$30

    Which leaves you with $35 to work with. You could buy a better belt for $40, or buy a couple of watch straps. You could buy more expensive shirts, or simply more shirts. Maybe more pants? All up to you, but I'd suggest the budget that I outlined.

    Once you move to San Francisco, I'd HIGHLY RECOMMEND going to Uniqlo in person to try on their OCBD's. The fit on their stuff can vary sometimes, but trying it on before you buy would save you that headache.

    Good luck, hope that helps
u/cloudmironice · 20 pointsr/consulting

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

Sorry for the throwaway. Felt a little weird posting this on my normal account, which has personal info on it. Here's what's in the pic:


EDIT: No, I don't carry these at the same time.
M&P Shield 9mm w/ Old Faithful holster (warm weather carry)
M&P9c w/Crimson Trace Grips and Shibumi hybrid holster (for jacket weather)

Carried inside the waistband at the 1:00 position. I sometimes use a Smartcarry holster if I need to be extra discreet, or want extra comfort. When I go running, I carry a Ruger LCR in the Smartcarry.

Gerber AR 3.00

I do terrible, awful things to knives, so I just buy cheap ones I can afford to replace. I have several knives I carry but the Gerber has been around the longest and has survived the most abuse.

Sunwayman M10R

I just started to EDC a pocket flashlight. It’s incredible how useful it is, especially around the house. I like the Sunwayman because the brightness setting is easy to change quickly. Also, unlike many similar lights, the outside is not knurled so it doesn’t scratch up my phone.

Nothing special about the keychain itself, but I have on it a FourSevens Quark Preon AAA light and a tiny capsule that holds a single bill for emergency cash.

All-Ett Sport Wallet

Stupid name, great wallet. Super-thin and durable. I sometimes forget it’s in my pocket. Anyone carrying around cow hide should seriously check this out. No more back pain!

Ares Tactical Ranger Belt

Yeah, it’s uber-tactical and a little mall-ninja-ish, but it’s the only nylon belt I’ve been able to find that doesn’t use velcro and can also comfortably support a firearm.

Revision Vipertail

I’m at the shooting range about twice a week for work, so I like sunglasses that are suitable for everyday use and are also rated for high impact

Casio AW80V-3BV
Citizen Eco-Drive

I just recently started wearing a wristwatch again after 10 years without one. I tried pocket watches, but none seemed rugged enough. Then I went to a belt clip watch, but that selection was even smaller. So now I’m back at wristwatches and I’m trying out these two.

Motorola Droid Bionic with Otterbox Defender

The phone is already pretty big, and enormous with the Otterbox on it. I love that it seems nigh-indestructible, but the rubber surface makes it hard to get out of my pocket.

u/Valarauka_ · 19 pointsr/Watches

So I've worn watches since I was a kid, but only recently got into mechanicals and I've been fascinated ever since. I've always been a one-watch guy, but that "one" has gone through a ton of evolution before finally reaching here.

For the longest time I wore super cheap Casio models: F91W etc., progressing to other sporty digital plastic stuff like the Timex Ironman.

Wanting something classier looking, but still not knowing anything about watches, my next move was to a snazzy-looking Guess piece, which lasted me a good while until a tragic end involving an unscrewed crown and a dip in a pool. D:

Looking for a replacement is when I found this sub and fell headlong into horology. Pored over all the buying guides trying to figure out what I liked; picked up a Timex Expedition to tide me over while I did my research.

Right off the bat, I knew it had to be:

  • a chronograph: in equal parts because I love the look of chrono subdials, and because I love timing things.
  • automatic: more impressive engineering imo, and less needy for a daily wearer.
  • with a display back: because I'm not going to get a watch for its movement and then not even be able to look at it.

    Okay, so automatic chronographs. Christopher Ward seemed like a well-regarded entry-level brand; browsing their collection, I found and was initially smitten by the C700 Grande Rapide (pic from here, it doesn't seem to be listed on the CW site anymore). "Valjoux 7750" -- hmm, what's that? Thus I discovered a somewhat surprising fact - auto chrono movements are few and far between.

    Suddenly presented with so many other 7750s, the luster wore off a bit. The ubiquitous 12-6-9 dial with boxy day/date cutout that I saw on almost every watch I looked at just wasn't doing it for me anymore, though I did find and fall in love with the IWC Portuguese -- sexiest watch ever, particularly in blue/silver, but a little too dressy for my style. Not to mention way more than I wanted to pay -- although Hamilton does a credible homage in the Maestro, for a lot less dosh -- but they put the date cutout back in. The Carrera 1887, while not a Valjoux, fell into the same bucket.

    Speedys seemed a lot more my style -- more tool than bling -- but the Pro wasn't automatic, the Reduced sub-dials just looked way too small and far apart, and the DSOTM was a bit too large for my smallish wrists (and again, mucho dinero). Although the cal. 9300 is a stellar piece of work; maybe someday!

    Throughout my search, one other name kept coming up: El Primero. Arguably the first, in my mind the coolest (hi-beat, integrated, column-wheel), certainly the only one still standing from the original three movements that launched in 1969 -- the other two being the Seiko 6139 and the Chronomatic from an alliance of Heuer, Breitling, and a few others.

    I was initially looking at the classic A386-style dials; hadn't even heard of the Rainbow series, but when I saw this one while idly browsing listings on WUS I immediately fell in love.

    Hope you enjoyed the read! I feel like I could talk about chronographs forever now...

u/intentionalthreads · 19 pointsr/malefashionadvice

The best way to spruce up this wardrobe is to do it better than everyone else. Some of your freedom is restricted, but not all of it. There's a thousand light blue OCBDs out there, a thousand hairstyles, a thousand tie designs, a thousand belts, etc. etc. Make sure everything fits well and is well designed. Here's a few ideas:

OCBD: Uniqlo, Gap, J. Crew Factory. Spend a few bucks and get it tailored so it fits perfectly.

Pants: Dockers, Topman, Gap. Look for skinny, slim, or tapered fits. Get them hemmed to no break, and if you're wearing them with boat shoes, cuff them a bit, if you're allowed to.

Belt: Everlane, Tanner, Norstrom Rack. I know, I know, you're a student and spending almost $100 on a belt seems dumb. That's just to give you an idea of the kind of design to look for. Nordstrom Rack usually has a good selection of nice designer belts.

Sneakers: Jack Purcell, Superga, Tretorn. Not sure whether "solid black" means no white allowed?

Boat Shoes: Sperry, Sebago, Dockers. Get brown. Trust me. And please don't wear socks with boat shoes. I don't care what the school says.

Ties: Seersucker, Knit, Stripe. With ties, look for unique fabrics and prints, like chambray, linen, and seersucker, floral, stripes, and solids, etc.

Extra Stuff: A nice watch, cool sunglasses, and a classy tie bar.

Hope this helps?

That outfit make you look like a high schooler. Though if that's the vibe your going for awesome, but I doubt it.

I'm going to assume you're in your early 20's and not a high schooler, nor do you wish to look like one.

The biggest issue with this outfit is that there is no unity between the pieces, it looks like you just threw on whatever was in your closet that day. My goal is to keep your overall style the same, but make it look a bit less immature. Try out some of these tips, and I think you'll be amazed at the difference.

  1. Can't tell if the white on your feet are socks or the shoes, but if they are socks, ditch em or get no-shows.

  2. Those glasses look like they came form one of those cart dealers you see at rest stops, buy some decent shades without the stupid reflective coating. (I'm a big fan of the classic RayBan 2140's, though I wear 2132's cause they go with my face better).

  3. It looks like you're wearing a red beanie, which goes well with the red shoes. That being said, I hate the shoes, they stick out like a sore thumb and detract from the overall look of the outfit. Either try swapping them out for a more neutral color or add more color to the chest part of your outfit (ideally a aqua as it goes well with red without looking like christmas)

  4. I REALLY (I mean REALLY) hate the button-up over graphic tee looks. Is just screams high school. Obviously that's subjective, but I absolutely can't stand it. I used to do it when I was in high school and thought I looked like the shit. That being said, if you are going to do it, I say ditch the graphic tee and go with a solid color that compliments the color of the button up (For example, I have a red checked button up that I wear over a teal v-neck). Personally, I like to button the shirt up to the third button, so the tee underneath just pops up the top. Like so

  5. That shirt does not fit. The shoulder seem does not look like it lands on the apex of your shoulder bone like it should. Also the sleeves on the shirt are billowing like mad. Also your sleeve rolls are sloppy (though that may be intentional).

  6. I would ditch the metal watch for a cloth band one. A popular option (and one which I love) is the Timex Weekender. Metal bands are typically more formal than that outfit, so it looks out of place as hell.

  7. Jeans look fine, I like slimmer, but that's personal preference.

    As for your point about shoes not being as important as people say, I have to disagree. Look at this and this. Just changing the shoes has a profound effect on the overall look and formality of the outfit.

    P.S. This is my favorite outfit for going out, though sometimes I go more basic with just a V-neck.

Not exactly them, but pretty damn close--just swap laces:

or search 'Desert Boot' in grey.

Seiko Men's SNK809 Seiko 5 Automatic Stainless Steel Watch with Black Canvas Strap

u/johnwclark · 15 pointsr/Watches

Casio Duro MDV106

Price: ~$45-50

Movement: Japanese quartz ( no model found )

Style: Diver

Size: 44 mm (without crown)

Link: Amazon

Description: The price tag says beater watch, but the fit and finish do not. It looks way better than a watch at this price point should. I like the quiet of a mechanical, but this might the quietest analog quartz watch I have ever heard. The 120 click unidirectional bezel operates smoothly. The most noteworthy thing I dislike is the date window is small and the date seem too recessed and a bit hard to read. The big surprise was the hacking second hand, which is not a feature I expect on a watch under $150.

u/-reTARDIS · 14 pointsr/moto360

Deleted my other post on this as I figured everyone would rather see the pics than a link to the band...

I originally assumed I'd do the stainless band since I have the stainless/silver 360 but have to say the grey leather strap really grew on me while I was trying to figure out what kind of metal bands were out there that'd work.

If it wasn't for the lack of a easier to remove clasp on the leather strap that came with the 360, I might have even kept it on there.

I found after a full day of wearing the leather band though that moisture was getting stuck under the watch due to sweat and hand washing.

Since the leather strap is to much of a pain to quickly remove every time I washed my hands, I'd just not bother.

With the metal band, the quick release clasp on the bottom makes it very quick to remove/loosen the watch to dry under there after each hand washing now.

Here's the matte black version

Here's the stainless steel verson

You'll need to either use the spring bars/pins that came with the watch or buy some like these.

Best Buy also sells the same Pebble Steel bands for the same price as Amazon which is where I got mine from.

Some tips with removal and install. The spring bar/pin holes in the Moto 360 are made from plastic. Be extra careful with removal and putting the new ones back in. If you misshapen or break those holes, you're screwed.

If you don't have a proper spring bar tool like this, you'll need a jewelers sized flathead screw driver.

Getting the existing bands out is the easy part, I found putting the new band back in with the spring bars that came with the leather strap to be a lot more tricky in the metal band. I found the best way was to try and compress the springs on both ends of the bar and go straight into the opening. If you try to put one side of the spring bar in first then compress the other side, it didn't want to fit.

I enlisted my wife with her tiny little hands to assist and it made things a lot easier :P

If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask.

u/CruiseBiscuits · 13 pointsr/PKA

MVMT watches are well known for being low quality "fashion" watches. These fashion brands are usually aimed at a younger audience so it makes sense they advertise on podcasts. In my eyes they aren't even worth the ~$100 price point. Sure they'll last a while, but so has my 10 year old Timex I got for 20 bucks, or some dollar store one I got as a kid.


If you are actually looking for a quality ~$100 watch, look at Seiko, Citizen or Orient. /r/watches is a very good place to learn, and you might find, like countless other beginners, that the Seiko SNK-809 is for you (my first "good" watch was the SNK-807), which is $50-$70 and a real mechanical automatic ("perpetual" for those of you across the pond) movement. Anything from Seiko 5 range is an incredible starter automatic watch.


Do some research if an automatic movement vs quartz movement is right for you (quartz is the basic battery operated watch that the "guts" can be found in watches ranging from $500 Movados to dollar store watches). I REALLY like seeing how things work so I really appreciate the mechanics behind an automatic watch. The downside to them is that they aren't as accurate as quartz (a normal range of inaccuracy is like +-10 seconds a day). But you'll never have to change a battery if that is any consolation. If that puts you off, keep in mind that a $10,000 Rolex has an automatic movement good for +- 5 seconds per day. And as a final PSA, stay away from Invicta. Their automatic movements, cheap pricing, and flashy looks may look enticing, but quality control is horrendous. Just as with any potential purchase, do some research on a watch you think looks promising. Give the model name a search on google or /r/watches and try to find a consensus.


For those of you who have been thinking they want a watch but haven't started exploring styles (which is the demographic companies like MVMT pander to with their styles) here is the classic "diver" style watch with the Rolex Submariner. A cheaper automatic dive watch I've been wanting for a LONG time is the Seiko SKX007, which obviously pays homage to the Sub, but is about $5800 cheaper. I'd replace the bracelet with something better than what is there though. Maybe I'll get it after college...

Another well loved cheap diver is from Orient, the Mako, though I prefer its big brother, the Ray, even though that is even closer looking to the Submariner.

The absolute best in budget vs quality in a dive watch is the ~$40 Casio MDV-106. You can get a decent 22 mm steel bracelet for almost the price of the watch and it will look fantastic if that is your preference. I've borrowed my brother's a few times and the thing feels like quality and has been put to the test plenty of times to prove itself as a real dive watch. He goes swimming, hiking, plays sports with it, drops it on concrete, etc. Rugged yet elegant looking. Good size too. Highly recommended first diver or first watch!

If you are looking for a real dress watch with "minimalist design" that doesn't look tacky like MVMT's (sorry, just my opinion), there are plenty in the Seiko 5 line like I said, or the lovely Orient Bambino.


Came back to say that if you don't really know if you want a watch, don't think you need to spend $100 on your first. Who knows, you might not like how it feels or looks on you or whatever. For the absolute cheapest of cheap, get yourself a Timex or Casio quartz watch. These brands are well renowned for their reliability. This way you'll end up spending only $15-20 on a watch that will last and work forever (obviously with battery changes along the way).

Edit: Some links

For a simple, analog display watch is practically indestructible, you can probably get him this g-shock 5610

You can spend the rest and get him something a bit dressier for days out, maybe like a Seiko sarb033

u/scycron · 13 pointsr/Watchexchange

I'm not very aware of the prices of diver watches, however I do know you can get this casio one for sub $50. Keep in mind it is 44m and is considered to be on the bigger side for watches

u/DevilishRogue · 12 pointsr/Watches

The Casio MDV106-1AV is a perfect daily use watch and does look like the Rolex Submariner but is a great watch in it's own right. It is quartz rather than automatic but considered by many to be best available budget dive watch. You can purchase the bracelet for it for less than $30.

If you must have an automatic rather than a quartz then the Orient Ray II is a great option that is also similar to the Submariner in terms of design but again a quality time piece in and of itself.

And if you aren't bothered about having the Rolex style looks, the Seiko SNZH55 is designed along the lines of the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms and also an excellent timepiece.

u/chiller8 · 12 pointsr/Watches
u/keyek · 12 pointsr/Watches

After searching /r/watches and considering both the Bulova 96B104 and the Orient Class I chose to go with the Bulova. I have a really small 6 inch wrist and needed a nice dress watch that wouldn't look out of proportion on my wrist.

I loved the minimal look of both watches but I wanted to have a seconds hand, plus I preferred 37mm over 38mm so I went with the Bulova. I'm really happy with my choice. I wish I had a better camera to capture how nice the Bulova looks.

The Bulova is a great size for my wrist, it looks proportionally bigger in the picture, here is one that shows a wider perspective, but it still looks more proportional in person.

My only criticism is that the leather strap could be better quality, it just seems a little too thin and delicate. However, its not something that distracts from the watch or is worth overlooking the watch. I may replace the strap later on, but for now I'm going to see if it grows on me.

u/Funkagenda · 12 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Skagen is actually based in Reno, Nevada, but yes, they are very slim watches.

I'm personally a big fan of this Bulova 96B104, as it's a great looking watch with an accurate movement and can be paired quite easily with a lot of different styles.

u/nonexcludable · 12 pointsr/Android

That was quick and this is not good for someone Samsung.

Edit: okay so as I type the jury is busy correcting the areas where it denied that any infringement took place but granted Apple damages for some reason. And they've just asked for clarification because it seems they do not understand what they did wrong.

Is it just me or is it a bad idea to just rustle up a few random people and ask them to decide such huge and complex issues based on a whim? They decided on the legality of 700 alleged patent infringements in 3 days, less than the time it took me to choose a watch to buy this week. (For those interested I got an SNK009 and a black leather strap to replace the canvas one). I feel they just wanted to go home for the weekend. And as a result consumers will pay, potentially for decades.

Is there not a better way?

u/ffmurray · 12 pointsr/Watches

When I was in high school, my dad purchased a decent quality Rolex Submariner knockoff. I loved that watch and its shape. After High School, I became a plumber and HVAC tech and stopped wearing watches or any jewellery(I still don't wear a wedding band, someone in my family had their finger degloved at a construction site). Last year I decided to go back to school to pursue a degree in mechanical engineering. Over the summer I was helping my parents finish remodelling their kitchen, and I mentioned that I should get a watch. My dad ended up giving my a Seiko 5 with a green canvas strap and later as a gift sent my a Bewell Wooden watch (I am a hobby woodworker). The shape of that Bewell reminded me of that Rolex Submariner and I started thinking about it again. A couple of months ago I subscribed to this subreddit and started seeing all of the great watches that you guys share, and I started to get the itch to get a good quality nice looking watch. I kept seeing the Seiko SKX007 popping up and started doing some research on it. This evening it showed up, and my first impressions are nothing but good. Thank you r/Watches for leading me to this watch.

u/bryans14 · 12 pointsr/Watches

Invicta is not going to be recommended on this sub. They generally are pretty bad watches.

Common suggestions here would be a Seiko 5, or a Seiko diver.

Here are some Seiko watches to consider:

  • Military Style Seiko 5

  • Diver Seiko SKX009

    Both watches are pretty small so they would work well on a tiny wrist. Hope I helped!

Citizen BM 8180

Price: 85$

Water Resistance: 100m

Movement: solar-powered quartz

Size: 37mm, 18mm lug width


Description: The numbers and the hands have very good lume and last throughout the night. The strap that comes with the watch is a green canvas and has metallic strap holes( sorry! I don't know what they are called). Usually people are not fond of the strap, but it is definitely tougher and more durable.

Is your friend a watch enthusiast? If not, he might be better off with a quartz watch. They are more accurate, less delicate and less overall hassle compared to an auto.

Citizen BM8180-03E Solar powered, so it doesn't require battery changes, and 100m water resistance, so it's safe for pool, beach or shower. If you don't like that particular model, Citizen and Seiko both make various solar powered models.

u/xmorphicx · 10 pointsr/EDC

No information included about your desired price range so I'll just throw out a few suggestions. G-Shock is a solid choice - my favorite is the GW6900 as it is 5 buttons (dedicated light button), solar powered, and sets itself every night to the atomic clock. A slimmer option is the GWM-5610 with the same features except for the dedicated light button. These also have non-atomic non-solar versions for about half the price DW6900 and DW5600 which both come in around $45. These are classic models and won't draw unwanted attention.

If you're looking for something analog, while I hate to recommend another Casio, the MDV-106 dive watch is really hard to beat for 40-50 bucks. Water resistant to 200 meters, real functioning diver's timing bezel, applied indices, rubber strap... it's highly regarded at this price point. Good luck!

u/Hasoroth · 10 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Not to rain on anyone's parade, but a quick skim of the 1 star reviews shows that some people claim that the watch that was actually received in some cases was not the watch pictured/expected.

u/YFC · 10 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Not a lot on Amazon at the $25 price range, but I guess I'd recommend the Timex Weekender as a good casual watch. Alternatively, you can wait until they have a sale on them, which should be as low as $20.

u/outlawpickle · 10 pointsr/EDC

My G-Shock is solar powered and automatically sets itself to the correct time every night through radio signals. Never have to change the battery and never have to set the time, it's always running and always correct. I definitely recommend it, I've had two other g-shocks and this self-sufficient one is just so perfect.

if you could push your budget up to around $60-$75, you'd be able to land yourself a nice Seiko 5.

It seems to go good with almost any outfit (except for maybe a suit) especially when you put a leather strap on it. Also, it has Seiko's widely used and dependable 7s26 automatic movement.

Here's mine with a leather strap bought at Sears for $20 or so.

Most watches are only offered in one size, but some are smaller than others.

Also good is this Seiko 5, but I don't own one right now. Anyway, I have no idea what your desired style or budget is, but hopefully those suggestions and photos are of some use.

EDIT: Also, if you're looking for NATO straps, check out Crown and Buckle. Their new strap design has holes cut for people with really small wrists. Even with my tiny wrists, I've still got two holes left.

u/KE-MN · 9 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I'd start by saying spring bar tools are cheap, and putting a different band or bracelet on a watch can really change its look. If you find a watch that you want to wear with different outfits, just pick up an additional band or bracelet.

All my watches are stainless steel or titanium, but I don't have a problem wearing them with a blazer with brass buttons, as an example. If I'm wearing a leather strap on my watch, I do avoid mixing black and brown. Black is black, and the point is it's nice and uniform. For brown leathers, I'm not concerned about the shade and some varience there can keep things from getting overly matchy. Can also vary things up with different types of leather, and as watch straps don't require much leather to make, that's a comparatively inexpensive place to add cordovan, stingray, alligator, crocodile, ostrich, tejus lizard, etc. if you want to have some fun with it. As an interesting example, here's what a $75 watch on a $300 strap looks like.

That black-dialed watch on a brown leather strap look sort-of intentionally clashes so you can wear it with whatever.

u/PM_ME_YOUR_FITS · 9 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

My current setup:

  • Seiko 5
  • Timex Easy Reader
  • 8 nylon nato straps
  • 1 brown leather nato strap

    I'm in for about $150. I've got 22 different combinations, and 2 watches of known quality. His quick-release system is interesting I suppose, but that's the only thing here that is innovative.

    EDIT: After giving it some more thought, I really do like his simple designs as well. It's difficult to find a nice clean design without including horribly intrusive branding as well.

Hey r/watches! This is my concise collection of budget watches. I’ve been collecting for about a year now and have been having a great time with the hobby. As a student, I can’t really afford anything expensive, so I’ve been looking for budget pieces with good value. Here are my pieces:

Sea-Gull 1963 : Got this from Long Island Watch and it has been great. I initially had a problem with a pusher falling out, but I emailed Marc and he sent me a replacement right away. The customer service at Long Island Watch is phenomenal; Marc responded within a few hours of my email the day after Christmas. He even offered to upgrade me to the sapphire version, though I declined because I prefer the acrylic.

Nodus Trieste : This is a great diver from a new microbrand out of California. I got the STP 1-11 version, though the version with the Seiko movement is probably a better value. I love how this watch resembles the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe, but avoids being an homage. The unique umbrella hands are also a great touch. The watch runs well within the promised +/- 5 sec a day, losing about 5 sec per week. I haven’t seen any on this sub, so let me know if you want a review.

Seiko SNK807 : This was my first automatic and I honestly couldn’t be happier with it. The lack of hacking and handwinding is kind of a bummer, but for under $60 I can’t complain at all. I put a high dome on it and polished the bezel a little bit ago in order to keep things interesting.

The straps on the Nodus and the Seagull are from I really like the NATO on the Nodus, but I’d stay away from the leather NATOs. The strap on the Seiko is from Barton , and I 10/10 would recommend.

I really wouldn't recommend either of those, because while they're only 50 pounds I'll bet they won't last more than a year. Instead, how about one of thise?

Seiko Men's SNXS79K - Pair this with a leather or nato strap and it'll be gorgeous! My own pic of a similar watch for reference.

Maybe its just me but I cringe whenever I see someone with an Invicta watch. Get yourself a more reliable watch. I just picked up a nearly identical watch link for $45 bucks. I highly recommend it

u/shward · 9 pointsr/Eugene

Just pick up one of these and you'll worry no more!

u/saskd · 9 pointsr/malefashionadvice

In that case the bigger boots like Iron Rangers, 1000 mile boots and Katahdins are out. But I'd still consider some chukkas or desert boots. I currently own and love the MFA standard Clarks (beeswax is probably the color you want) and these Red Wing chukkas.

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/risingsunx · 9 pointsr/frugalmalefashion
u/LowBrowOrbit · 8 pointsr/Watches

My personal favorite in this category is the Casio World Time. In terms of pure function it's a great bang for buck watch, and if you like the aesthtic (it's not for everyone) it can be a killer EDC.

For autos, I think the subs collective opinion would probably be the Seiko SNK series.

u/ILoveDeepDishPizza · 8 pointsr/Watches

This Seiko 5 - SNZG15 is my first automatic watch. I’ve owned this watch for 2 weeks now but I didn’t want to post it here until I received the dark brown leather NATO I ordered for it. I think it compliments the watch nicely and gives it a more sophisticated look from the cheap strap it comes with. I was torn between this watch and the Seiko SNK809 but after looking it over I chose the SNZG15 because its larger in diameter (42mm vs. 37mm) as well as it is waterproof up to 330ft (100m). If anyone else owns this watch I’d love to see what straps you recommend for it. Thanks!

FYI on Amazon it states that the band width is 20.6mm. This is false. Order a 22mm

Having read through your comments, my suggestions would be as follows:

Option A - Skagen

Option B - Skagen

Option C - Seiko

Option D - Seiko

Option E - Seiko

The last two of them are the most casual of the bunch. They can be worn daily, while the rest are semiformal and he should at least be wearing a button-down of some sort as opposed to a t-shirt with them.

u/lostarchitect · 8 pointsr/Watches

If you like dive watches, you are better off saving up a bit and getting a Seiko SKX instead. It's much higher quality, and will only cost a bit more. They can be had for under $200 easily, sometimes as low as $170. You can also get a Seiko 5 field watch for like $60, which is a great deal! These are both automatic watches.

u/keybored_cowboy · 8 pointsr/AirForce
u/tappman321 · 8 pointsr/Watches

If you want a chrono, a Seiko SSB031, mecha-quartz is a good value for $125. You get a smooth sweeping chrono hand, which is nice to have on a quartz watch. If that doesn't fit your style, you can look up different SSB models to find one you like.

If you want a field watch, Citizen Men's BM8180-03E is a nice quartz watch for $90. You can get a Timex Expedition for cheaper, but I think the Citizen is a better value for the price point. The Timex Waterbury is a nice watch for $100-$150, and I really like the look of the watch (might be overpriced for what you get but I just really like the look).

And also check out some G-Shocks. They don't get much love here, but I honestly think if you just care for a watch you can use, and don't care about looks, a DW-5600E is the best watch you can get in your price range.

u/Checkers10160 · 8 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

/u/TheParkingAttendant said it's this watch

u/SirRipo · 8 pointsr/Watches

Citizen Eco-Drive BM8180-03E

Price: $75-$100

Movement: Eco-Drive E100/quartz

Style: Military/Field

Size: 37mm (without crown)

Link: Amazon page

A great choice for someone looking for a durable, military-style watch without having to worry about batteries. The stock band it comes with leaves something to be desired, but it looks great and is very comfortable on a NATO/Zulu strap (18mm). The lume is nice and bright, even with other lights around it, and without a strong charge source (I work in a bar and even with the dim lights I notice it glowing hours later).

If I had to change anything about it I would change out the mineral face for sapphire, as mine has managed to collect a small scratch in the year I've owned it, but it's not a deal-breaker for me.

u/Knight_of_Ninestars · 8 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

One of the Seiko 5's are around 50 bucks and can go lower with the 20% off code. You can get a leather band cheap to make it look more professional.

u/ImTheDoctah · 8 pointsr/Watches

There are so many great options under $500! As you noted, Swiss Made is pretty much out of the question at this price point, but that's okay. The brands that you are mainly going to be looking at here are the Japanese brands: Seiko and Orient. Here are my favorites from cheapest to most expensive, including links to where you can buy them.

  1. In my opinion, the absolute best automatic watch to start out with -- especially if you're not sure if you'll be collecting watches long term -- is a Seiko 5 ($55). With its solid automatic movement and exhibition caseback, it's an incredible value for the price. Swap in a brown leather strap and you have a very attractive watch for under $80 total.

  2. Of course you already know that the Orient Bambino V2 is another great option -- very similar to the Seiko 5 but a bit less casual and more high end in appearance. Retail on this one is $300, but it can usually be had for below $200. Long Island Watch had it on sale for $117 very recently but unfortunately it is now sold out.

  3. If you want a tool watch, something a little bit more rugged, definitely go for an Orient Ray II ($185) or a Seiko SKX007 ($199 - bracelet version linked but also available on a black rubber strap). I personally own both of those watches and they are both awesome.

    Hope this helped. I would also recommend checking out some watch reviews on Worn and Wound. They specialize in affordable mechanical watches so there are plenty of pieces on there under $500. I could have mentioned some but there are too many good ones to name really. Take a look, maybe something might catch your eye!
u/G19Gen3 · 8 pointsr/Watches

I like automatic watches. I've also got a wife, child, and house to pay for. I also love to beat the shit out of my stuff because it just sort of happens.

Enter the SNK803. Automatic. Tough. Most importantly, easily replaced if I destroy it. But, I don't like the matte finish of the case. I DID have a dremel tool. Do I have an autozone? Yes I do. Do they carry mother's mag & aluminum polish? Every day. So I polished it up. Not mirror, a shiny satin finish. But now I need a quality strap. So I ordered a John Allen Woodward Alligator for $1,100...NO! What goes best with a satin finish and a beige face? Simple leather! This is a Ritche Genuine Leather NATO strap for a timex weekender. Happens to come in 18mm. And you know it's high quality leather. How? Says so. Genuine is right in the name. Only the best straps come WITH a tool to remove the pins.

Now I've got a watch that looks great, keeps great time, is a tiny mechanical wonder, and looks just as good at work as it does hiking. With a grand total of maybe $60 and an hour of work in it.

u/ocbdocd · 8 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Having an idea of your wrist diameter would help. Anyways, I have small wrists too and wathches with dials in the range 35 - 38 mm such as this Timex Easy Reader or Timex weekender work for me.

u/waterhoused · 8 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Spurred on by this thread on r/FMF a few days ago, I purchased the Seiko 5 in blue off of Amazon. The blue, green, and cream models were on sale for $50, and using the 20% off newsletter promotion it came out to $40.

Special thanks to /u/JoCoLaRedux for pointing me to this Hadley-Roma brown leather watch strap. It appears he’s wearing it with the cream face, which also looks great.

u/Mammal_Incandenza · 8 pointsr/Watches

Depends on what you mean by "sports"...that's a big budget so you have tons of options, but if you're playing things like basketball//baseball/golf etc, you'd be better off buying a cheap beater to abuse and a second nicer watch for other times. Constant sharp, impactful hits can mess with mechanical watches (guessing you're not talking about a $6k quartz), sapphire crystals shatter, etc...

I have one of these for when I'm doing something strenuous or potentially damaging -

Yeah, it's ugly in a 1983 kinda way, but it's 200m depth rating, solar battery lasts pretty much forever on even a quick charge, atomic clock (never have to set it), and is generally indestructable.

Plus, as ugly as it is, I think it looks a lot better wearing that playing basketball than being the guy on the court wearing a Rolex for no reason.

It also leaves $5,910 leftover to indulge in whatever great watch or watches you truly love and you won't have to worry that your golf swing is fucking with the movement or an errant fastball just shattered your daydate's crystal.

u/Drunk_Panda_456 · 8 pointsr/gshock
u/1nky0ct0pus · 8 pointsr/gshock

I recommend the GWM-5610.

I wear it every day.

-Positive LCD screen with bold numbers is very easy to read in all lighting settings including close to darkness

-Auto illumination feature - turn your wrist to look at your watch and it will light up for you automatically if the solar panel senses darkness (can be turned off)

-Multiband 6 automatically sets the time by radio signal once a day so your watch is accurate down to the second at all times

-Solar powered rechargeable battery

-Low profile

The only things I do not like about it is that it is a little small on my wrist, the buttons are small, and I wish it displayed the current time in stopwatch and timer modes.

You can also go with a GWM-6900. Generally the same feature set with a light button on the front of the watch. Bigger buttons , much larger and bulkier than the 5610.

u/ireallyhatepants · 8 pointsr/Watches

I've always been a little hooked on watches, but I only recently started grasping what made some watches worthwhile, and others, well, not so much. In the case of this Seiko (SNK805), I'd been searching for something like it for a while. I'd never owned an automatic, and it was proving pretty hard to find one that wasn't at least several hundreds dollars. I know it's nothing special for a lot of people here, but I'm absolutely floored at the build quality and overall appearance of a watch that cost me less than $65.

The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the strap it shipped with, but that was an easy fix via a $15 leather NATO strap, purchased from Amazon.

All told, I love the watch. But after discovering how awesome automatics are, dear God, do I fear for my wallet's future.

A lot of people recommend the regular Weekenders but they tick really loudly. They look great and are worth their price but the tick bothers me.

The best watches I've found for under $100 are:

Seiko 5 in your preferred color

Casio MDV Diver

Timex Weekender Chrono (Doesn't tick loudly)

If you choose one of these it's really easy to switch out the strap with one of these (spring bar tool)

I own all three of these watches and they are great. You can also check out different straps on Amazon or sites like cheapestnatostraps.

and a cheap plug for /r/Watches

u/stylefish · 8 pointsr/Watches

If you want to just mess with the movement, I would suggest a 7S26 as it's widely used in Seiko's 5 series (most people's first foray into automatic watches) and has good documentation.

If you'd rather buy a watch in case you want to delve into modding, I would suggest the SNK809 due to it's price which is usually ~$55 and has dropped to $41 during sales. It's powered by the 7S26 so the documentation I linked above applies as well.

For just taking apart the movement, you'll need a movement holder (the "vice" you mentioned), set of small screwdrivers, and small tweezers at minimum. For taking apart a watch completely, you'll also need a caseback tool, hand removers with dial protector, and crystal and hand press with dies and tips. I'm probably forgetting some essentials, but you can peruse Esslinger's tools page to get an idea. Finger cots, Rodico, and air blowers are usually nice to keep the movement clean for reassembly. I'm not familiar with the lubricants used, but if you ever decide to clean the parts with an ultrasonic cleaner, you'll want to look into those.

Aside from that, watching some videos and checking out some picture albums like those posted by /u/Slyvix will prove informative regarding workflow. His latest one was particularly enjoyable and includes lots of nice pictures.

u/frostinhisbones · 8 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Timex Weekender's seem to be the go-to for a lot of people here. I've got two, but I think I'd rather have a Seiko 5, it's an auto (doesn't run on a battery). There's something kinda neat about automatic watches and the Seiko has a really good quality/price ratio.

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.

Five top value watches

This is my opinionated list of the five best value watches on the market, based on personal experience. I own all five, so I do have first hand experience of them. These watches cover a wide range of styles and there are no homages amongst them.

From left to right these are:

  • Timex Expedition Military Field
  • Seiko Black Monster
  • Magrette Moana Pacific Chronograph PVD
  • Seiko Cocktail Time
  • Hamilton Intra-Matic

    The Timex Expedition is a no-brainer at $45. It has fresh clean styling, lovely skeletonized hands and a really nice cut-away detail for the hour markers in the chapter ring. The Indiglo back light and 10 year battery life are just icing on the cake. Yes, it's a quartz movement and has a mineral crystal but it's unbeatable at the price. I wear this watch regularly despite owning watches that cost vastly more. Good review over at Worn & Wound.

    The Seiko Black Monster the undisputed top dog in value-for-money mechanical watches and a gateway drug for many. It simply has it all: fantastic build quality, excellent bracelet, best-in-industry lume and a lovely face. This is quite simply the most pleasant to read watch I own. That it's also one of the cheapest is amazing. The only real downside is that it has a Hardlex crystal rather than sapphire but in practice this isn't a problem as the bezel stands proud of it, protecting it nicely. $205 from Amazon.

    The Magrette Moana Pacific Chronograph PVD is a much lesser known piece from the boutique New Zealand brand. This is one of those watches that is just impossible to capture in photos due to its jet black, but very glossy, PVD finish. In the flesh it looks like something that costs 10x more. The movement is a hand-wound Chinese Seagull item, but users generally report that it is reliable, and it looks great through the display back. It sports 500m water resistance, sapphire crystal and comes with a rubber strap also. $500 direct from Magrette.

    The Seiko Cocktail Time is easily the best value dress watch that I know of. It's stunning looking in the flesh mostly thanks to the way that the sunburst face and chisel hands reflect the light. The blued second hand is a lovely touch also. I have it here on a Hirsch leather strap but the one it comes with suits it nicely too. Bizarrely, many online retailers use a shot of this watch that completely fails to capture its characteristics e.g. compare this review with the product page on Amazon. $440 from Amazon.

    Finally, the Hamilton Intra-Matic. This is really a first-rate re-issue from Hamilton. It's a gorgeous slender piece (10mm), with really refined detailing. It's subtle and understated, but has a nice ETA 2892-2 movement, sapphire crystal and a very nice pebbled leather strap that suits the aesthetic beautifully. It dresses up or down quite comfortably. Check out the Worn & Wound review. The stainless steel silver-faced one in 38mm size is definitely the one to go for IMHO. ~$600 from Amazon

    EDIT: Fixed Magrette model name, thanks /u/KORNSTAR

Somebody with bad taste in watches took it upon themselves to advise others one fateful day?

Like even if you were on a budget, stepping up to an SKX diver, Seiko 5, or Orient auto should have been the "default" advice there, as it already fucking has been in the watch community for many years for newcomers on a budget. Even a quartz [Casio MDV-106] ( would have been a better value and look, if 40 bucks was your absolute ceiling.

The Timex Weekender really is the MFA CDB of wrists now.

There's no "best G-shock" per say, but the ones people on /r/gshock are into the most would be both the

I also don't have a problem with the ticking at all. The expedition watches aren't even close to as loud as a weekender.

u/Herrfurher12 · 7 pointsr/Watches

You've heard wrong. MVMT is the absolute worst company for the price. It is just a chinese watch with chinese movement, nothing new. avoid brands like these, for ex: Daniel Wellington. I suggest you start by looking at Timex, my favorite brand. After that, Seiko, Orient, Citizen etc. I'm giving you amazon links to my favorite ones.

I have the MDV-106 and have dove with it in Bali, watch is a champ, its my weekender/beater. Very sturdy and a total bargain. Can be found at around 50-80 USD.

I got mine for 75 SGD which is about 60 USD at a local watch shop. You could probably get it cheaper online.

EDIT: If you have small wrists the casio should be great, my wrists are a hair under 6", and I think it fits my wrists nicely.

u/myrmagic · 7 pointsr/EDC

Go to walmart and look for the Casio MDV106 and dump the armitron.

Then you'll be better prepared!

u/reportingfordooty · 7 pointsr/Watches

Since I don't know exactly how much abuse the watch would take under your work conditions, I would recommend a quartz diver (very water resistant and movement is much less likely to be affected by bumps or drops, etc.). The Seiko SSC021 Solar Diver Chronograph has pretty much everything you're looking for, but is on the bigger side (around 43mm). For $40 there is a Casio dive watch that is actually quite nice looking, 40mm, 200m water resistant, with a quartz movement.

u/exfratman · 7 pointsr/NavyBlazer

For a general, all around "I don't care" watch, it's tough to beat the [Timex Weekender.] (

u/aufisherman · 7 pointsr/moto360

Yeah! Any 22mm band. Just make sure to order a spring bar tool if you are going to replace the band yourself. I would recommend going to a physical store to get the band so you can make sure that it will fit.

u/PureDrifter · 7 pointsr/Watches

Here are some things to consider before buying and installing a strap :)

  1. Strap Width: Figure out what your watch's strap width is, usually called the "lug to lug" measurement. Watches commonly have 14-24mm wide lugs. A ruler works just fine. Length is usually not an issue unless you have far larger or slimmer than average wrists, if the stock strap works, you should be OK. WPT: check amazon/other sellers, often times they list the strap width. It's listed here as being 22mm for your watch.
  2. Strap Style: Purely up to you, some common styles other than the typical leather are Aviators (stitched+rivet for strength), NATO/Zulu (one piece of fabric/leather, very secure and simple), and of course, bracelets. Look here for more examples, though the relatively recently introduced Leather NATO isn't shown.
  3. Tools: I will say this once; BUY A SPRING BAR TOOL! They are available dirt cheap from amazon and ebay, and will greatly reduce your frustration level when it comes time to swap straps. (Note: No tools needed when swapping normal NATO style straps as they thread through the spring bars. You will need a tool to remove your stock strap and install the bare spring bars however.) Also a spring bar tool will reduce the odds of your tool slipping and marring/scratching your case while you try to compress the bar. Important thing to consider, especially if you have a plated or treated case as you can't just polish out scratches. I bought this one though there are a couple cheaper.

    I am a huge fan of amazon for basic tools and even some straps. For NATOs I like to use as they have competitive pricing, great CS, free (USPS) shipping, and almost always have an extra 10-15% code on their facebook page. Their leather NATOs are very nice as well.

    Here's a pic of a new strap I put on my Pulsar:
u/RivieraBob · 7 pointsr/Watches

Solar powered, radio controlled, tough as coffin nails, and with a slick veneer of the eighties.

u/nliausacmmv · 7 pointsr/Watches

GWM 5610: If you're okay with digital, it's hard to beat one of these for indestructibility.

GSTS100D: If what you want is analogue, this one is also indestructible.

AWGM100B: Basically the same guts as the last one, but the case is covered in rubber so you don't have to worry about scratching things while you work.

All three of these run off of little solar cells and set themselves automatically from a signal broadcast throughout pretty much all of the Continental US, Europe, Eastern China, and Japan. So all you ever have to set is the time zone and it works the rest out for you. If you really want you can go and buy a crazy expensive G-Shock, but really the only improvement after the $350 region is in the $1000 region when they add GPS so you don't even have to do the time zone manually.

Edit: Got my facts mixed up some; the second one does not have radio-controlled time like the others.

And as long as I'm adding things, I'll add another recommendation: Bertucci makes really durable field watches. Nothing too fancy; just quartz movements in really well-built and tough cases.

u/dominict_ · 7 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

If you're looking for a nice and affordable watch, check out these options. They're going to be much better than the quartz watches ASOS offers.

I would look into one of Seiko 5 SNK series, like this one. If you like the two-tone look, you could always buy a two-color nato for it, like these.

Phone, wallet, keys, watch, knife. Those are the things that I always have, though I also carry a backpack when it's convenient/needed that also contains a Kindle, water bottle, simple first aid, sanitizer & soap, emergency whistle/compass/magnifier/thermometer gadget. I tend to wander off into more remote areas frequently enough that these can come in handy. Interestingly, the first aid supplies have been used to help others far more often than for myself.

u/cptzanzibar · 7 pointsr/StarWars

Im a mechanical watch person, and my go to suggestions in the under $200 price range are Orient and Seiko. Even the $70 Seiko 5. I have had one of these for near a decade and it still just chugs along. Probably the most suggested budget dress watch has to be the Orient Bambino. If youre looking for a quality quartz that has chrono functions, I dont think the Timex Weekender can be beat.

There are others, but those can get you started.

u/theglobelighter · 7 pointsr/Watches

Hello! Not a question but just saw these incredible deals on Amazon and wanted to share. Beige Seiko 5 SNK803 is going for $34.03 and the Citizen Eco-Drive counterpart, the BM8180-03E is going for $54.05 ATM!

u/brotteofeo · 7 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Aeromatic makes Chinese pilot watches in this style. They have a quartz version for $130 and an automatic model for $200.
Seiko makes quality and affordable automatic watches. The styling is similar on this model, but this Seiko is smaller than the model you linked to.
Orient is my favorite option for quality, style, and affordability. At the moment it is out of stock with most retailers though.

u/Blovnt · 7 pointsr/Watches

This is my new Seiko SNK803. I've been watching it on Amazon for a while and the price briefly dropped to $34. I was lucky enough to catch it in time.

I couldn't be happier with this watch. It's clear why the SNK80x series is so popular. At $34, this is a steal.

u/choconuts5 · 7 pointsr/newsokunomoral



u/TheDutchWonder · 7 pointsr/TeenFA

I would suggest a black watch of some sort, as casios are my favorite, I can use those as an example.


Retro - my favorite

Different retro



Not all 100% black, but they at least got a little bit of black in them. I think part of wearing a watch is being able to balance how busy it looks on your wrist with how busy the rest of your outfit is. If you're going for streetwear, wearing a flashy watch is a lot easier than for someone going for a business casual look (of course there are exceptions). I'd say look at these and see if any would mesh with your wardrobe. Even if not, get the calculator one or the analog minimal one just to experiment with watches. They're cheap and it's fun as hell.

u/jt_nu · 7 pointsr/wow

meanwhile I like rocking a Casio calculator watch for no reason other than it's retro and is the closest approximation to Marty McFly's watch you can get without spending $250+ for the real thing. That and how hard my wife's eyes roll when I call it my smart watch.

Parts of my EDC I'd love to acquire brass version of:

  • I wish they made a brass Ridge wallet. Machine Era made a brass minimalist wallet similar to the Ridge at one point, I think.
  • A brass pocket knife. I've seen a few but none that cause me to want to part with my current knife.
  • A brass cigar punch cutter
  • A brass USB drive. They have a gold colored version of the JetFlash I use now, but it's not brass.


u/mikekalil · 7 pointsr/Watches

The Seiko 5 is the go-to recommendation around here. With good reason: It's a great value and definitely handsome. One of these days, I'm gonna order one of these.

For Vostoks, zenitar on eBay is your man. A lot of models are well under $50. If you order from him, it could take a month for your watch to arrive - and it's not the seller's fault. I'd caution against getting a Vostok as your sole watch. I love them (I've always liked Russian stuff), but their quality control is abysmal.

Welcome to the internet. You must be new here.

Amazon reviews were a joke long before Steam started allowing user reviews. I think one of the first and most popular being the Three Wolves Moon shirt. As you can see, the top rated post is a joke from 7 years ago. Steam user reviews have only been around for a year and a half-ish.

You'll find that no matter where you go in the internet, if people are allowed to contribute to a website, they will make silly tired jokes and other pre-pubescents will upvote them to saint-hood.

Anyways ... good luck with your future endeavors listing shit on amazon. I wish you the best.

u/kurazaybo · 7 pointsr/Watches

I think the models you chose are this (burgundy) and this (black).

About the color, the burgundy is interesting and at your age you will have no problem with it, unless we are talking about very formal occassions, but if you want to look sharp I think a neutral color like black or white dial would work better. Perhaps silver and navy would work too.

Both are chronographs around 42 mm wide and 11 mm thick.

Functionally, both are more of a sport watch. The burgundy is a 60 min chrono, so you can time up to 60 min only. The subdial at 3 o'clock tells time in a 24 hr format and I think the makers only include that to make the dial look busy. The black one also goes up to 60 min only, the subdial at 12 o'clock indicates fractions of a second in a format I am not sure I understand. If you are interested in the chrono function (which I use a lot almost everyday), I think you would be better with the ability to time hours.

Seiko is a good brand and I'm sure will last 5 years or longer. I think you will be fine with any of the two.

If I had your budget and wanted a chrono, I would go with a casio. Here is one model and here is another that I think you may like. Both are chronos with a black dial that count up to 12 hours. Price is lower than the Seikos but you loose the date. I would say that quality will be similar to the seikos too and size will not be much different. I would personally choose the second. My only complaint about Casio at this price is that the metal bracelets can be noisy and pull the hair in your arms. This chrono has a clean look that is quite versatile.

If you don't care about the chrono and just want a versatile watch with a busy dial, there are options with leather straps that would look better in formal wear and save some money for a future watch upgrade.

This one uses the subdials to display an anual calendar, meaning you will rarely have to readjust the date (like on february 29 only). It also comes in black and I think it would not look out of place if you wear it with a suit.

The most versatile and elegant watches are simple and thin like this.

Hope this helps.

u/ArghZombies · 7 pointsr/Watches

Well to be honest, 95% of all watches are overpriced for what you get. And 4% are the right price for what they're worth - because they're crap and won't last. Then there is the 1% of watches that are sensibly priced and good quality. But if those were all we bought everyone'd only ever wear a Seiko, and the world would be a pretty boring place.

So yeah, it probably is a bit overpriced. But it's jewellery, it's supposed to be. Nixon watches have plenty of fans, on this subreddit as well.

But if you want something a bit better for your money then you could do worst than something by Bulova or maybe a Citizen. Both decent companies. Or just go with the Nixon if you like it and can afford it.

Seiko SARB0065 "Cocktail Time" is a beautiful watch under $400.

u/Qumbo · 7 pointsr/Watchexchange

Don't you think your price is a bit high? I could give you $320 + w/e shipping costs for a watch you've owned for two years (not commenting on condition), or I could buy it on Amazon for $377 (only an 18% premium) which includes free two-day shipping (for Prime members, free standard shipping otherwise) and is fulfilled by Amazon. I don't know what your shipping conditions are, but assuming FOB NYC I would be exposed to the loss if it gets damaged during delivery, or, assuming FOB my location I would still have to deal with you for returning it and potentially have to pay return shipping (again dependent on the terms of the sale).

Posting another one of my favorite cheap but stylish watches I've added to my rotation. I purchased the OD Weekender a few weeks back and something about it just didn't float my boat. After scouring the web for a decent Nato strap seller, I purchased this strap along with two others from The Nato Strap Co. and immediately fell in love with my Timex's new look.

Though I love the Weekender's high looks/price ratio above everything else, I especially like how easy and readily it accepts new Nato straps. I look forward to purchasing and photographing more in the future.

Thanks for taking a look!

I'll earn some contempt from other MFAers for this, but I'm excited that you are eager to be a more sartorial Man's Man instead of the twinks, ironic nerd, preppies, and drop-crotch streetwear I keep seeing here. I appreciate their styles, but I want to see more blue collar style.

Footwear: Invest in some good boots Timberlands / Redwings / Thorogood

Pants: You want a slimmer chino, but you need to be able to move in them, so not too slim. Alphas / Land's End / Gap

I wouldn't bother too much with Denim, a single pair of slim fitting dark wash jeans if any for the time being. Quality denim is going to be out of your price range right now. Just don't get any that are pre-distressed.

Shirts: Fit will be an issue here. Your natural build is going have narrower shoulders than men of your height. Since we base successful fit on shoulders above anything else, you might be left with very tight fit throughout the chest and waist. Trial and error will be the only way to go about this, but I'd say avoid slim fit here. I could have this completely backwards though.
No Graphic T's /Henleys / Chambray is nice here in FL / Any patterned button downs (stay away from pearl snaps- we're trying to avoid flair)

Outdoor jacket: Timberland Waterproof!


  • hoodies - They are simple and comfortable, but lack structure and embody the touristy unprofessional look you are trying to get away from. They have their place, but not for what you are seeking right now)
  • Athletic shoes - save these for the gym, not for work
  • Hats - Unless they bare the logo of your workplace. At work is no time to advertise for any sports teams, brands, opinions on your clothing
  • Flashy watches - If you plan on wearing a watch keep the face size within reason and the color and style simple
    *Jewelry - unless it has sentimental value, rings,earrings, necklaces, and bracelets are not what you are looking for

    Haircut note: I'd recommend cutting the sides and back much much shorter, and you can leave whatever length on top. Right now it looks very youthful and wild instead of professional.

Dessert boots.

His might be a more expensive brand / pair. But the style is pretty popular. The Clarks Dessert Boots have achieved meme status over on r/MaleFashionAdvice due to how much they were recommended as a basic style piece.

u/Dead_Politician · 7 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Redwings will do you good. The chunk heel seems to be the most popular for casual use. I also like Clark's desert boots, which are a similar style but not quite as boot-y. I wear mine everyday.

u/jppbkm · 7 pointsr/malefashionadvice

A: Congrats on deciding to dress more fashionably. I don't think that you should necessarily conflate this with dressing "more grown-up." Many grown-ups dress sloppily/non-fashionably/wear clothes that don't fit.

B: Good job reading the sidebar. For additional information I am a big fan of Alan Flusser's book "Dressing the Man." It focuses on what, today, is a formal wardrobe for the average man. It explains many of the "why"s of wearing items/fabrics/patterns. I also recommend the "Basic Men's Fashion" series of articles on the website fashionbeans.

C. There are a few keys to spending your money wisely. First, fit is key. Ask questions and read up in order to understand how each article of clothing should fit. Second, certain things are in or out of fashion. Pleated pants, for instance, are really out of fashion (with the possible exception of suit trousers). When in doubt, simpler is usually better when it comes to styling. Third, figure out what colors work together and what colors work for YOU. Your complexion will play a part in choosing what to wear.

D: It sounds like you may want a separate set of clothes to wear in the lab if there are really accidents as often as you say. It would just be unfortunate to buy some nice clothes and ruin them the first week.

E: The shoes are rather unfashionable. Some would even say "ugly." Ideally, shoes should be shaped to fit your foot. A squared or extremely pointy toe is a no-no. The toe of these is rather bulbous looking. Rather than coming to a smooth round toe they kind of flare out. In addition, the sole gives them a chunky look. This contrasts with the leather and the stitching just throws everything off. The shoes seem unable to decide whether they want to be a work boot style shoe (brown leather, chunky sole) or a more casual sneaker type of shoe (toe shape, contrast stitching).

F. It is sometimes said that your shoes should be the most expensive part of any outfit. Shoes can be pricey but when well-cared for they will really last. It is also a lot easier to find shoes that fit (for most) than pants or shirts as foot sizing varies less than body sizes. I would recommend a couple of the following classics.

  1. LL Bean Moc

  2. Clark Desert Boot in Beeswax

  3. Converse All Stars

  4. A nice clean penny loafer in brown leather.

But besides that, here are the few things I can suggest;

Tshirts: [Uniqlo Supima Tshirts] (, H&M Basic Tees (Just because they are cheap and fits me perfectly), Wohven (Tshirt subscription for $8 per month which delivers good quality tagless plain t-shirts).

Pants: [Levis Jeans] (, [J Crew Factory Chinos] (, Jomer Chinos (Very hard to get hold of these, sign up for their newsletter and see when they are back in stock)

Shoe: Adidas Stan Smith (Currently on Sale), [New Balance] ( (Good Prices at their outlet store), Clarks Original Chukka, [Golden Fox Boots for Snow] ( (These are some of my favorite boots for cheap. They are extremely comfortable.)

Outerwear: [Parkas] (, (ASOS usually have some good ones), Pea Coat (Not extremely sure where to shop for a good pea coat), Uniqlo MA-1 Bomber Jacket

Again, there are some of the basics, cheaper options that I can think of. Good Luck

What kind of shoes do you like? What's your budget?

Just some general suggestions:

Desert Boots - Standard "r/MFA uniform" boots. But they are very classy looking, I get compliments for mine all the time. They are very comfortable to walk in and are usable most seasons of the year (but not too great in loads of water).

Plimsolls - Come in loads of colors, help tie together your outfit/make a personal bit of flair. Very clean, very simple. Loads of people love them.

Boat shoes - Personally don't understand them but people seem to love them. They're more of a spring/summer shoe, IMO though. Just remember, no socks or no-show-socks.

Are you goddamn serious? Here, if the rest of your outfit is ultra casual, wear sneakers or a shoe made of canvas. If your outfit is casual, maybe a suede. If you're dressing to impress, something made of leather.

u/Lithiumt · 6 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I'm 16, so I may be able to help you a bit with what would look good on you, since I wear this stuff.

  • Docker's Alpha Khaki: Grab a few pairs of Dockers alpha khaki's, they have them at Macy's - if you don't have a Macy's near you, you can order online. The grey, navy, and tan are all good colors.

  • GAP's skinny selvedge: We here at MFA love raw jeans, but not every teenager can afford them. Gap has some fairly cheap ($35) 1969 jeans that are fairly nice. Get them in a dark indigo wash. If you don't like the gap jeans just remember get a pair that is slim (but not skin tight) and dark indigo is a great color to get them in.

  • Target's Merona V-neck: Your shirt seems kind of odd in this photo, the V is really deep, and as others have said it's best not to get such a deep V unless you are more on the muscular side. Target's merona brand has a great V-neck shirt that is pretty good on fit and has a lot of colors. Their crew necks are good too, but its just personal preference. I personally like the crew necks more because they fit my body type better.

  • OCBD's (Oxford Cloth Button Down): This is a button up shirt made of oxford cloth (heavier than the average "dress" shirt, lighter than flannel) and has a button down collar. You can get these at a variety of stores but MFA typically recommends Jcrew, get them in slim. If that's too pricey gap makes some fairly ok OCBD's. Its a great shirt for fall/winter with layering and spring by itself (but you can layer if you feel like it, might be too hot) its not much of a summer shirt because it can get hot if you are in 80 degree weather+

  • Shoes: Van's authentic's are good shoes. Off white is a good color. Once it get's to fall/winter you may want a boot. I own a pair of red wings, but obviously everybody can't buy them since they are fairly expensive. The Katahdin's are also good, but again - to a teenager they might be pricey. You could go with Clark's but they aren't great for winter (the crepe sole has a tendency to absorb water, which isn't good if you want dry feet) but they will do OK if you aren't walking around too much in rain/slush. If you want boots you may have to pay a bit more... but it will be worth it since they will last, and they are very stylish. If you get the right pair, you will definitely get some compliments.

  • Sweaters: Cardigan's, Sweater's, they are great. I actually made a post about this today. Jcrew has some great sweaters, a bit more expensive than other brands but I hear they last for a very long time and are high quality. Banana republic also has some great options. Gap makes a great cardigan that I am going to buy tomorrow.

  • Jackets: Get one in black/olive/or brown. The guide over in the sidebar is great for jackets, they are a long subject and it would be hard for me to cover all of them in this comment. EDIT: Also, vests - if you can pull that shit off, wear one, on the right person they look great. Like this

    As a few final tips:

  • Make sure your belt matches your shoes in color.

  • Make sure your pants fit you well, you shouldn't be able to fit more than 2 fingers in between your waist and your pants.

  • Shirt and shoes shouldn't match.

  • Button up's shouldn't be too long, if its long it is meant to be tucked in, and it looks odd because me and you usually wouldn't be tucking in our shirts.

  • Fit is very important. Make sure it fits well before you buy it (but not so well that when you wash it, it shrinks up and you can't wear it).

  • As others have said, cut your hair.

    MFA is a great community, but a few people criticize things pretty harshly, don't feel offended if this happens, its happened to most of us here.
u/BaconCat · 6 pointsr/funny
u/jrocbaby · 6 pointsr/malefashionadvice

You need to read a lot from the sidebar. It will help. I know it's a lot to read and it's intimidating, but it's worth the time investment. Also start paying attention to what you think looks good. Movies, pictures, people on the street. whatever. with time you'll get better.

Everything is too big. Since corsair_002 did an amazing job, I'll try to just give a few specific recommendations. You dont need to take them, but it might help you get at least 1 good outfit going.

  • Get some slim fit tshirts in solid colors with no graphics or branding. Navy blue, dark grey, & medium grey are the first ones I would get for you. You are going to want to pay attention not only to where the shoulder seem lines up, but also to the diameter of the sleeves. Being so thin means that most mall brand shirts will not fit you in the sleeves. I would only buy shirts that fit you there. It makes short sleeve shirts really look good on a person.

  • Get some slimmer jeans. levis 513 or levis 511 in a dark wash like the rigid dragon color on the 511s. I would try the 511s first. if you are too uncomfortable in them, either give it a few days to get used to it, or try the 513s. Whatever the inseam is on your jeans now, you will want to try 2-4 inches shorter. You have what's called stacking, and when keeping things simple we dont want that much of it.

  • while plimsolls are awesome and cheap. Try van authentics in the color labeled "true white". Dont worry about keeping them white. They look better when they are a bit beat up. Dont expect them to last more than a year.

  • after you get plimsolls get some boots. clarks desert boots in the color labeled "beeswax" are cheap and look good. Chippewa gqs are the next cheapest, but decent looking boot. These will last you a few years.

  • ditch the glasses. Get contacts and get some sunglasses. I like rayban wayfayers, since you have what looks like brown hair I would get the color labeled "tortoise shell" with the green lenses.

  • I would grow your top hair out just a bit more and cut the sides shorter. Your haircut, glasses, & outfit are making you look boring. If I was you, I would fight that with a killer haircut. it can add a lot of attitude to your looks.

    One thing you dont want to do is get some slim jeans, nice footwear, dope shades, a new haircut and then wear a big old baggy shirt like this. You are a slim guy. Keep it all slim.

A lot of girls have given me compliments about my Timex Easy Reader with a brown strap. I've caught people staring at my wrist too.

u/DorkusMalorkuss · 6 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Personally, I prefer the Timex Easyreader.

u/SarcasticOptimist · 6 pointsr/Watches

This Citizen seems to be perfect. Solar powered, quartz, cheap, and a nylon strap, which shouldn't be terrible if you sweat (you can replace it with a bracelet, which I find better for handling stink).

u/go_lobos · 6 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Id recommend the Seiko SNK series if you're looking for a watch in the $50 price range, but certainly cant go wrong with a weekender or fairfield.

u/wasteland_wanderer_ · 6 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Seiko SNK803

u/goatboy1970 · 6 pointsr/malefashionadvice

A much better option is the Seiko 5 SNK80XK2 series. It's a quality automatic that looks almost identical to this, and still comes in at a very affordable price. Available in Beige, Green, Blue, and Black.

u/thechangbang · 6 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Here's mine. I took the strap off and have like 4 NATO straps I'll change depending on mood/outfit.

u/jetpacktuxedo · 6 pointsr/IAmA

That is not a C-80, that is a CA53. I actually already had that page open because I have been looking at replacing mine. The strap broke this past winter and it is cheaper to buy a new one than to replace it.

As a bonus, here is a picture of me setting mine "on the ball" at the Greenwich Observatory last week. :)

It is a normal spring bar system.

Using a tool like this one I was able to replace its original band with this band

(P.S. You need a 20mm band, any type will work as long as it is that size).

You can see from the back of the watch how it attaches, there is just enough room here to get that tool in, push aside the leather, and undo the spring bar.

u/JoCoLaRedux · 6 pointsr/frugalmalefashion
  1. You'd be very hard-pressed to find as much value in a watch that costs only $50
  2. No. You can only hear the inner-workings clicking away if you hold it right up to your ear.
  3. The sky's the limit. You should invest in a spring bar tool so you can change bands, though.
u/Watermellon53 · 6 pointsr/rawdenim

I asked MFA this, but I'd like your opinions too. I'm thinking of getting the Seiko 5. Blue face or Green face? And any strap suggestions (denim, leather, etc...) under $25?

u/Hericus · 6 pointsr/Watches

My first automatic watch arrived this weekend, and I couldn't be more pleased! I decided on the SNK807 due to affordability and popularity in this community. Plus I have a tiny wrist as you can tell, and I think its 37mm case fits great! I bought 5 NATO straps from and 2 perlon straps from Wrist Candy Watch Club.



I like them, they seem to wear comfortably and don't feel cheap, even though they were only about $6 a piece. My only complaint is that one of the straps I was sent is not what I ordered. Hopefully I can get in touch with them and sort it out.

NATO regimental strap Australia - blue, red and white

NATO regimental strap - navy and white. This one I accidentally got in 16mm, my own fault - d'oh!

NATO regimental strap Le Mans - light blue, black, and orange.

Eton NATO strap.

NATO regimental strap - gray, black, and white. I believe this is the one I received, this is the one I ordered.

I also purchased a spring bar tool from them and would not recommend it - the end was incredibly sharp and drew blood when I accidentally poked myself with it while changing out the original strap. I'm sure it would come more easily to someone who is more familiar with changing straps, but as a beginner, it was a very unpleasant experience.


Perlons -

When these arrived I was somewhat disappointed - my expectations of perlons was that they are more cloth-like, while these feel very plasticky. This just be the nature of perlons, and I was unaware of it, it's my first time hands on with them. I started wearing the blue one yesterday and it has seemed to soften up quite a bit, so they may just need some time on my wrist! I like the fact that they're adjustable, but one improvement I think they could make is to add something to stop the loop, because without the watch they can easily slide down and off the end of the band.

Beige perlon.

Blue perlon.


I will probably end up buying a leather strap for it as well, I've seen some pictures of the SNK80x on leather and I think it looks really handsome. Any suggestions?

I'm super excited to finally own an automatic, and glad I stumbled upon this subreddit! My wallet might not be as happy, I'm already lusting after a diver, probably going to pick up an SKX013 next!

u/redavid · 6 pointsr/Watches

Timex Weekender, or perhaps one of the Seiko 5 watches like this if you want an automatic movement.

u/tablloyd · 6 pointsr/frugalmalefashion
u/DeaDly789_ · 6 pointsr/Watches

A few weeks back, I was actually looking for the same thing in a G-Shock. I came across the GWM5610

It's cheap, solar powered, atomic, black, and has a button to illuminate the screen (and AutoEL, that automatically lights up the watch when you turn your wrist towards you in the dark).

It's the classic, most simple G-Shock design (no frills, imo) and an homage to the 1983 original. And it fits my 6.5" wrist perfectly.
Obligatory wrist shot

Hope this helps.

u/mr_mistoffelees · 6 pointsr/EDC
u/LogicWavelength · 6 pointsr/Watches

Under $50 is a really steep restriction, as you are aware. Will you actually be diving with it? If so, I recommend the Casio G-Shock DW5600E-1V, as it is much more water-resistant than a regular watch with a regular crown - even though they are rated the same in this instance.

If you do want a "diver" style watch, there's the Casio MDV106-1A. Keep in mind that this is not a very good watch (it's fair), just one that fits your requirements.

Given the choice, I'd buy the G-Shock.

u/crispybaxon · 6 pointsr/Watchexchange

The cheapest watch in my collection also happens to be my most favorite, most used, and easily the most complimented. The Casio MDV106.

Here's a whole other bunch of Casio watches under $50. You can't go wrong with this brand.

u/DeathCommrade · 6 pointsr/Seiko

You can't beat the SNK809, always a great starter watch in the seiko automatic world. 21 Joule movement for only ~50 dollars is such a good deal. It's also more versatile than many watches and considered a more military/sportier option that could be dressed up with a leather or nato strap if absolutely necessary. I own this watch and recommend without hesitation.

A more dressier watch to consider would be the SNKL23. Has some great reviews on youtube for being a great starter dress watch. I don't own myself but have seen multiple people proclaim its greatness.

Happy hunting!

u/tesmundo89 · 6 pointsr/Watches

So anything in that diameter that's not an SNK809? Cause if you don't know about it, you'd LOVE it.

u/AngryJellyfish · 6 pointsr/Watches

For your second Junkers, it looks awfully similar to this. I'm not familiar with the Junkers brand so I can't comment, but Seikos are rock solid, heart touching. You can get it for a whole lot cheaper off eBay. There's also one with a metal bracelet quite like the one you've posted up there. They're the 809s (not sure if the bracelet version is the same.)

I personally have this and it's a can of whoop ass. Came with a metal bracelet but had it switched with some NATO straps. Those can be had for under 200 USD; the 809s can be had for less than 100 USD easily.

>This one is pretty good too

It's 48mm. That's comically huge. Aesthetics are subjective but I'm finding it hard to find something inoffensive with that one.

Jackthreads is a pretty poor choice for buying a watch. All of those watches are cheap Chinese quartz watches; $129 for that one you linked is ridiculous.

Some good options:

Seiko 5, basic automatic Seiko.

Blue-ish Timex

Another Timex, I don't like the dial but at least it's not a ripoff

You can always change straps. There are thousands of different straps to choose from.

u/thompssc · 6 pointsr/EDC

Descriptions with links

  1. Moleskin mini-notebook.

  2. Zebra F-301 Bold: Notebook and pen get dropped into my shirt pocket. On weekends, whether they come along is completely dependent on whether my shirt has a shirt pocket.

  3. Seiko 5 SNK793: Just got this last week actually, but I really like it. I had a Hamilton Jazzmaster before and, while a quality piece and I love the style, the case was just too big/heavy for my liking. I found myself wearing my Timex weekender on a NATO strap more and more. This has a very similar case size, although slightly thicker/heavier due to automatic movement. Something classy/understated enough for work.

  4. Maratac Copper AAA: I really love this thing. This is not the newest version (rev 3), so it only has low/high, but that's all I really need. Feels very solidly made, I have dropped it numerous times and it has nary a mark. Despite the exterior being solid copper, it isn’t as heavy as I thought it would be and I never even notice it in my pocket, even in dress pants. I leave the clip on so I can set it on my desk/counter and not have it roll off, but often don’t bother to clip it to my pocket. Sometimes I’ll clip it to my coin pocket in jeans but usually just leave it in my right pocket with my keys. I don’t know what to say other than that I really love this thing.

  5. Leatherman Squirt ps4: Very small, disappears into my pocket. Even in dress pants at work, I don't feel this weighing them down at all.

  6. Keysmart with 2 apartment keys: The rivets tend to come loose, which is a little annoying. May throw some Loctite or something on the threads to keep them be. Otherwise, I like it.

  7. Nexus 4: Love this phone. No intention of getting rid of it anytime soon. Unless they come out with a phone that will bake me cookies or dispense coffee, the only reason I'll move on is that this one dies.

  8. SOG Fielder: SOG Fielder. Just like guns, black means you obviously want to kill people but any kind of wood stock/handle means you probably just have it for utility. /s I actually really like this knife. Very classy, feels good in the hand, good weight. I get lots of compliments on it.

  9. Crappy wallet from Wal-mart or something

  10. Springfield Xds 3.3 in 9mm in a Crossbreed minituck
  • Love this pistol. Fun to shoot at the range and feels great in the hand. Well built, well balanced. So far, nearly 2k rounds in, no FTFs, no jams, no light strikes, nada. Trigger is a little stiff, but that kind of comes with the territory for a gun designed for CCW. I ordered the PRP trigger kit to lighten it a bit. Also, I’m probably going to have night sights installed soon. Nothing wrong with the stock ones, I just want night sights :).

    Minituck holster is great. I hiked 10 miles in the White Mountains last weekend and hardly noticed this setup at all. Will most likely go with Crossbreed for future holsters. I can successfully tuck in a shirt around the gun if need be with this one. (I do not carry at work because my employer does not allow it)

u/Jekies · 6 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Under $60 you're going to be pretty hard pressed to find a quality watch. If you don't want a Timex, I'd definitely look into the Seiko SNK809. The watch comes in a variety of colors so you can shop around a bit and see what you like best. The one I linked is around $50 right now, which is the lowest I've seen it on Amazon.

It's an automatic, meaning you won't ever have to buy a new battery, and overall it's just a great watch for the price. I'm curious to see what other people suggest, but I expect this will probably be the best you can do for your price range.

u/sainone · 6 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Seiko 5 Men's SNK809 One of the best automatics you can get for under $100

u/david_of_nothing · 6 pointsr/malefashionadvice

If it has to be < $50, then you should stick with a Timex - get a real Easy Reader or maybe a Camper.

If you can go a little above the $50 budget (to $70), you could get something like a Seiko 5 Automatic

u/sacundim · 6 pointsr/Watches

To quote myself:

> Keep in mind that all of these features are done mechanically, with miniature gears and springs and cams and such. No electronics or anything like that.

Electronics make any of these functions cheap and easy to do, which is why Timex can offer perpetual calendar for $150.

And your perpetual calendar price might be a little inflated there. This $15 Casio has perpetual calendar!

u/Gobizku · 6 pointsr/malefashionadvice

What I went with.

Jean jacket This hasn't gotten here yet, can't speak of the quality.



Button up This thing is a poor build. The arms do not fit right at all (if I try to raise my arms above my head in a V shape, the shirt gets too tight in the armpit/lats area, I didn't even know shirts could do that), I will never wear it again after halloween, but it was the only thing that was even close to looking similar.

Puffy jacket, red

For the maroon undershirt, I already had one from Target/Mossimo brand, their t-shirts are pretty good quality, cheap, and soft as hell. This thing is pretty spot on.

Jeans I was just going to wear a pair I already have, not too worried about the dye/color.

Glasses were a pair of aviators I had. They're not mirrored, but whatever.

So yeah, there's a lot of corner cutting, but most McFly costumes look bad because people have no idea how to buy fitted clothes. Jeans are super loose, jean jacket way too big, puffy vest too big, etc. All this stuff fits me very well, so it actually looks pretty well put together. I also got a cheap pair of Y black suspenders from amazon. If you really want to be authentic you can get a nice pair of purple Calvin Klein underwear, I didn't feel like spending $20+ for that though.

u/NationalChamps2015 · 6 pointsr/barstoolsports

That watch for $50 is lightyears better than a MVMT for $100. It will likely last 50 years, has horology, and can be used as a watch you wear with everyday business attire (non suit) or just as a beater watch. Good buy!


After looking up the Seiko 5, you can find many at a $50-$60 price point. This military style is amazing.

Timex Weekender. Tons of options and very economically priced. Only downside is that it ticks very loudly.

If you want to go a bit pricier, Skagen is on the better end of "fashion" watches quality wise, and I genuinely love the look of a lot of their models, particularly this one.

Also, check out Seiko, Citizen and Bulova for some of their more basic looking models. You can't go wrong with any of the brands I named, I own one of all of these except Skagen, but I know they're good stuff. It just comes down to how big of a watch you want and how much you want to spend.

u/bodhi1235 · 6 pointsr/Watches

Timex Weekender is a great, inexpensive watch. I'm afraid you overpaid, especially for used. Brand new on Amazon is just over $30

Quartz movements are actually extremely accurate (more so than automatic)

u/HalfCent · 5 pointsr/Watches

I picked up a Seiko chronograph (my first chrono) for sailing and a base Seiko 5 as a practice watch for modding / repair.

u/timmythetoole · 5 pointsr/Watches

For that price I'd recommend the Seiko 5 SNK809 I have the SNK803 which is the beige version and it's one of my favourite watches.

u/kroopster · 5 pointsr/Watches

Gotta agree with the other comments in here, the argument could be made for basically anything in life.

Anyhow I still try: How'bout spending that 400 into something you can liquidate easily later on? I'm not talking about profit, but it might make the purchasing easier if you know that you can sell it later for even $300? And if you really like it a lot, then you'll be just happy forever.

In that case the Junkers you linked might not be the easiest watch to sell, the automatic version could move faster but it's quite a lot more expensive. Just as an example, there are watches like Seiko Cocktail time which are in your price point and would be really easy to resell.

edits: ~200 typos.

u/SkepTiKalKloWn · 5 pointsr/Watches

Casio and Timex both have decent digital watches in that range. For an analog, Vostoks are great looking if you don't mind that they can gain/lose alot of time in a day otherwise Timex and Seiko has some good basic stuff that you could put a metal or rubber band on if it doesn't come with it already. Outside of that if all you can spend is $100 most of what you'll find either gonna find are cool looking but flimsy pieces or decently made but basic watches. If you can up your budget even to $150 your options from Orient, Bulova, and Citizen open up a little bit.

For $84 you can get this square g-shock (5610) that has solar battery and atomic timekeeping, which as an engineer you might particularly appreciate, also it is tough as a rock.

I've got the same watch, it feels and looks really nice, especially considering the price. Right now I have a black and gray NATO style nylon strap on it, which I like better than the rubber one. I think it would look really nice with a steel bracelet though. If you look at the customer product images on the Amazon page there are several of it with different bands:

u/raustin33 · 5 pointsr/Watches

I have a touch over 8" wrist and the 38mm Timex Weekender I received as a gift is just too small for me – my wife wears it.

Personally I wouldn't go smaller than 40mm – which is the size of my dress watch. Timex makes a ton of styles though, easy to grab something 40-42mm or even 44mm if you feel like it. You can wear those sizes without looking dumb.

An alternative suggestion to look at the Casio MDV106 if you have any interest in a dive watch. I got mine for $33 on Amazon Prime to wear for a while to see if I like wearing a diver before I spend any serious money. Turns out, I do, and will buy a higher-end diver sometime in the future. I'll still keep this as a good grab & go beater even as my collection grows over the years.

It's 44mm wide, with short lugs, here it is on me (208mm wrist) in a couple shots:

u/Convulsed · 5 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Both Casio and Fossil are pretty well respected for this price range. They aren't as traditional, though, but still solid quality.

Casio has a nice diver as /u/wolfquinn mentioned. I own this, too and love it. Casio focuses mainly on digital watches.

Fossils tend to be more trendy or large. I own one, but don't wear it much because of its size. It is good quality though.

If you are looking for a similar watch to this Sturhling, I would look into certain models of Timex Elevated Classics or certain models Timex Expedition.

u/Fridayfunzo · 5 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Hate to crap on your deal, but if I was going to spend $40 on a diver, I would get this instead. I know there's less flash to it, but the watch is reviewed really well and it's also made in the US, if that means anything to anyone.

u/klusark · 5 pointsr/Watches

There's this Casio Diver. Casio has tonnes of great watches under $70

Seiko has a few more models in that range. See here. Maybe a bit too minimal for you, other than the one you already liked.

u/ByGollie · 5 pointsr/Watches

At that price range, you'd be going for a quartz watch (for reliability)

Casio MDV106-1A $45 Diver (Quartz)

Casio MTP4500D-1AV $54 (Aviation style)

Seiko SNZG15 $120 (Automatic, not quartz)

If you're a real fan of the Diver look (the classic bond-style Rolex GMT) then look at Steinhart watches - starting at 400 Euro, they're out of your current budget, but typically have the same/similar guts as a $5K rolex, with great build quality too)

I'm currently rocking a Parnis "sterile" GMT (no logo) - A Chinese automatic that looks exactly like a classic 60's Rolex, but i'm under no illusions about it's waterproofness.

My next watch will be a Gnomen OVM 39 - a Steinhart diver watch with smaller dimensions, as my current one is a bit heavy on my slimmer wrist - i find i'm occasionally removing it during long coding sessions on the keyboard.

I honestly have no idea why it's so expensive. Casio makes other solar and atomic G-Shocks that are cheaper. I assume the guts are higher quality and it might be lighter and smaller. (I own this one. I have had it for about 4 years now.)

What about the GW5610? I love it - it looks great on my 6.75" wrist.

Two versions (I have both):

u/ZanderDogz · 5 pointsr/malefashionadvice

You have a few choices. You could either go quartz or automatic. Quartz is where you have a battery (and sometimes solar charging), and automatic is when the movement of your wrist winds a little spring in the watch. Automatic watches require resetting every few weeks because they are not as accurate, but some people think they are cool. I will assume you don't want to deal with that, but if you do, something from Seiko would be your #1 best bet for sure.

This particular watch (which is what I am wearing right now) looks delicate but by all means, it is not. It is meant for scuba diving so you can swim with it and it is very durable to the point where I have accidentally used it to block a lacrosse shot and it survived without a scratch.

If you want to go Quartz, and for 200$, probably solar, you will want to go Citizen.

I don't have a citizen myself but they are very highly reviewed over at /r/watches.

You could also go another rout and get a G-SHOCK, which is probably the most durable watch you can buy.

(Both of those are solar power).

I would encourage you to look above your price range a bit, especially if you want to go for a Citizen, because it allows you to get something like this that will last you forever, but you can still get something great for under $200.

The watches I listed here are much more versatile than most of the ones you linked to, (except for the G-SHOCK, don't wear that with a suit!) I will wear my Seiko Orange Monster with anything from a swim suit at the beach or with a black suit at a formal event. Buying from any of these three brands and not from a fashion/clothing brand that also makes watches will guarantee that your watch will last for a very long time. Feel free to PM me or ask for help at /r/watches if you have any more questions or want any recommendations.

u/AlGoreVidalSassoon · 5 pointsr/malefashionadvice

There's a reason Clark's Desert Boots are such a popular shoe. They don't have much competition in that price range. Red Wing makes a workboot like chukka but it's much more expensive.

u/greedhead · 5 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

It kinda depends on the rest of your style - what does a typical outfit look like for you?

Clark Desert Boots or another pair of chukkas might be a good start - they can fit well into most any casual outfit.

Vans Authentics, Jack Purcells, or Chuck Taylors are also good starter shoes and are usually good quality for the price - you can probably find better sales on other sites. This may be better if you dress more like a typical college student. I'd avoid the bright/loud colors for fall shoes.

Those are just wide suggestions based on knowing nothing about you. Examples of your usual style would help.

u/wimwt · 5 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Honestly, I think these shoes are pretty ugly - I don't think the patch on the sides works very well and I think you could get a much more versatile shoe than these.

I'd personally recommend you look at some brown chukkas (CDBs etc), some plain tan bucks (eg Bass Buckinghams) or possibly some camp mocs (eg LL Bean camp mocs)?

These are all a lot cleaner and versatile than the Florsheim; and more often than not simpler looks nicer.

This is a great start for your BoB but it seems like it's really a get somewhere bag (or should be). Here's a few comments.

  • Get rid of the candles - unneeded
  • Remove the passport (you won't be escaping to another country!) In its place, put a photocopy of your license.
  • Put your meds in a sealed, vacuum packed bag - if you don't own a vacuum sealer, get one, you'll soon be vacuum packing everything!
  • For the gloves, get a pair of Mechanix
  • Change the credit card to the cash - when the power is out, cash is king - keep many small bills
  • Watch the prepaid phone plans, the sim cards may expire - remember - any charged old phone can still call 911 without a plan!
  • a small solar charger for your phones and adapters for multiple phone types would be a good addition
  • Learn how to clean a fish
  • Replace the digital watch with a automatic or solar one, something inexpensive
  • Add something to carry water

    Good luck!
u/i_speak_the_truf · 5 pointsr/Watches

I'd probably go with the Seiko SNZG series. They are larger and built better than the SNK series.

For a true "pay as little as possible" watch, the Timex Weekender and Expedition meet all your requirements aside from being quartz.

From a practical standpoint, this Citizen is probably as good as it gets:

u/Kelwynn · 5 pointsr/malefashionadvice

You can try the Citizen BM8180-03E or the Parnis big pilot if you're looking for a similar one under $100

u/Number_06 · 5 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I've had this model Citizen Eco-Drive analogue watch for about four years now. It's solar-powered so there's no battery to change. It keeps fantastic time. I set it according to at every time change and so far it has never been off by more than four seconds. I didn't care for the original watch band and replaced it with a nylon military-style one. It has stood up just fine to daily wear.

u/scuderia_Rosso · 5 pointsr/Watches

Try the orient yellow mako it's $130 The mako xl has a nice green bezel/black dial combo that is colorful yet tasteful but ut's $180. The seiko snk809 also comes in green blue and biege. If you don't care about quality look at the tendence rainbow collection I'll link all this later when I get access to a computer rater than my ipod

Edit: look at the seiko orange monster

edit 2: Added the links

u/hcsteve · 5 pointsr/malefashionadvice

The Seiko SNK is probably the watch that Metcarfre was talking about. It comes in black, blue, green, and beige - no white AFAIK. You can put a pass-thru or NATO strap on most leather band watches, just remove the existing band and put the spring bars back in. It may be difficult or impossible on steel bracelet watches.

What do you mean by a step above in thinness? You want something thinner or thicker? The Weekender is 10mm thick and the Seiko is 13mm thick about the same at 10.5mm thick. Skagen or Swatch are probably your best bet for a cheap thin watch.

Casio Duro: 200m water resistance (can dive with it) accurate, cool!

u/ccampo · 5 pointsr/Watches

Casio MDV-106, $45 on Amazon. Potentially the best dive watch under $50 in my opinion. If you can afford to shell out an extra $10, get a 22mm NATO strap to go with it.

u/WatchandThings · 5 pointsr/Watches

Your timex with 100m should be good to go, but note that water resistance do drop as the seals age. Usually you would get the watch tested for water resistance every few years, or in case of high end watches that see water often every year.

With that said, casio duro is a solid 200m dive watch at $50 range. And you get to say that you are wearing the same watch Bill Gates wears, so there is that.

May I introduce you to the Three Wolves and a Moon.

u/EddieVolcano · 5 pointsr/Portal

Behold: The Three Wolf Moon T-Shirt. Read the reviews. It became a cultural phenomenon.

u/kinematografi · 5 pointsr/pics

Okay, ironic is a slippery word and it's meaning is very specific and a bit esoteric. However, like "pretentious", many people nowadays use it to describe something a little different from what it means. In this use, I meant it in the sense that kids wear and purchase things that they don't necessarily genuinely like, but wear for a value of humour.

For example, the Three Wolf Shirt gained a lot of popularity in "hipster culture" because it was "cool", but not for the reasons the creators intended. Hip kids who wear it are not especially fans of wolves or The Mountain's other designs but found a special absurdity in this particular design.

So, a GnR shirt might be worn "ironically" by someone who wants to invoke a sense of nostalgia or humour (especially with a more over the top design, like this) but doesn't actually listen to or even respect the band. They wear it strictly for its fashion properties.

This gets really murky when kids who actually love a band like GnR (or Poison, Scorpions, etc.) wears a shirt like this, but wears it in this style. It is very hard to tell when kids are "being ironic" or expressing genuine support. My favorite example of this is the fanny pack. It was originally marketed towards yuppies and soccer moms, then, later on, hipsters started wearing them out of irony. Certain people took this to mean they were "fashionable", so people wore them because they were convenient and stylish. They never were and still aren't, but now you've got all these idiots walking around with fanny packs and no one can tell who's "cool" and who is a nerd.

Moral of story: Don't wear things out of irony because you still look like an idiot even if your friends think it's funny or kitchy.

Seiko 5. Check it out. Best automatic watch under 100 bucks.

u/HeroBlues · 5 pointsr/WatchesCirclejerk

Fuck the Mods right in their fucking "Penis Twelve-Marker". Everyone knows there is one watch and we already know how much that watch costs (it's a good deal).

Now, if you ask me how much my NATO costs? I may have to kill you.

u/alwaysgneiss · 5 pointsr/EDC

Personally I have 6.25" wrists and this watch is just a tad big. G-Shock DW5600E-1V

You can find them cheaper in the US if you're from there. They're available usually all over the world. Just be careful when using Deet products (ex. mosquito repellent) since it eats away at the resin.

If you're looking for an analog watch that you can beat around I'd say this Seiko 5 SNK809. It will also fit smaller wrists not to mention its probably one of the cheapest reliable automatic watches available from a reputable company.

Again there are many straps for both watches and a few different colours.


u/PartyBees · 5 pointsr/Watchexchange


If you want the straps, I think it's worth it, but if not, then definitely buy new.

u/Mavmar · 5 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

I interpreted you're comment as you're looking for a watch in the same price range that is automatic as opposed to quartz. If that's the case, the Seiko 5 is thought of being a great watch for the price and can come in around the same price depending on which you go for.

u/SpartnPride · 5 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I highly recommend looking through [r/watches' buying guides] ( as well as the faq. Lots of good recommendations are given, especially for automatic watches, which are a "step up" from quartz movement type watches like the Timex Weekender.

edit: as for an actual recommendation, people rave about their seiko 5's, particularly the SNK809 model which can be fitted with a NATO strap of your choice.

[Bulova 96B104]

Price: About 100$

Movement: Quartz

Style: Dress watch

Size: 37mm and weight is 50 grams
Link: amazon

Description: This is simple and reasonably affordable to most budgets, yet very smart looking dress watch. Its a quartz, so it has a very low profile on your wrist (<6mm) and the restrained proportions make it a good fit for a suit-up Monday at the office and it won't deteriorate if you only use it once in a while. Best feature is the dial with a light grey sunburst motif while the date at 3 is my least favourite (and useful) complication, but for a piece at this price range I'm not complaining.

u/sircarbonmojo · 5 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

This Bulova is as minimalist as it gets for <$100, but other than that I would recommend Seiko 5 + a leather band or a Timex Easy Reader

u/antisocialmogul · 5 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I usually recommend these Thorogoods for workboots in that price range. I have a pair and they are very comfortable despite being a little heavy. Also the plain toe version, which is a few bucks cheaper. I don't know if you can get them in Norway though.

You might have luck finding a pair of used red wings in good condition for around $150. Check the FMF weekly thread and ebay. Make sure you get something with a wedge or other thick sole. I like the vibram christy soles myself (same ones on the thorogood boots above).

u/Acrimony01 · 5 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Don't waste your money on this crap and buy some Thorogooods. They also make one in a Moc-Toe.

Thorogoods are made in the US with great quality leather, legit fit (similar to Red Wing - you may think you need to size down...I personally disagree because of the instep). I waited and got mine for $100 bucks. If you are looking for a real quality work boot you can beat up, or want that rugged vibram sole look, you can't really go wrong with these.

The Tobacco color is fly too.

Also, these Dickies are made of genuine leather and glued soles. Basically, this makes them completely and utterly fake. They will fall apart quickly and smell terrible after a few uses. A good rule of thumb is that if you can't afford real leather, you can't afford that style of shoe.

u/IndustriousMadman · 5 pointsr/Watches

Seiko SNK809. 43 seconds slow since November 3 (The last Daylight Savings change).. It was off by more than that, but then I took the back off and tweaked the little timey changey thingy, even though you all already know I had no idea what I was doing. I've had it since October 2010, and it's still my daily wear - mostly because I have to in order to keep it going, but I do love taking it off my wrist and showing people the innards. Also, it's come off my wrist an fallen onto waxed-tile floor a couple times when I was putting my backpack on at school, and the shock obviously hasn't done anything at all to it.

u/ChromatinNazi · 5 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

This Sieko (in black) seems be a popular choice around here. Just checking their whole selection seems that Amazon has a very different choice of Popular Watches; mainly brands as Fossil, Nautica, Casio and Citizen.

Sorry if it isnt very useful! Maybe youll find something you will like.

u/indomitable_snowman · 4 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Thorogood have great value boots. The ones you linked don't seem to be good quality and the design is a little tacky.

u/ggill1313 · 4 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Get some Iron Rangers factory seconds. They go on sale from time to time down to $160. Great, great boot. I got some of the Red Wing insoles for around $25 that made a world of a difference as far as heat is concerned. Size .5-1 size down. If you have wide feet, don't size down to .5 size down, depending on your foot size.

You also have the Chippewa Service Boot. I got my brother some for Christmas and they are actually really nice. The "Cordovan" option looks lovely and is a lot more versatile than one might think as it's a more burgundy color. But it really works in occasions where you would wear this sort of thing.

The Thorogoods Moc Toe is a great boot as well for a different look. These can't be dressed up as easily IMO, but good boots the same. Red Wing has a similar boot if you'd prefer the look of it. It's also a good boot.

For all of these, get some nice wool socks. Darn Tough makes some good ones but I don't like the looks. Anonymousism also makes some good stuff provided you like the colors, but IMO are a bit overpriced. My favorite wool socks came from J. Crew last season. They are thick, warm, look good, and were reasonable priced.

If you have any other questions, let me know!

u/fearsclave · 4 pointsr/Watches

Of the two, the Akribos is in better taste by far, but it’s not a good brand or a very interesting watch.

Mechanical and automatic watches are much cooler, and get more respect from watch nerds. And Seiko 5s are pretty decent entry level automatics.

Well it's not rare but a Seiko 5 is a solid automatic watch that has a nylon strap and and is $47.89 on Amazon.

Citizen Eco-Drive BM8180 - $124

Timex Expedition Field Chronograph - $48

Timex Weekender - $32

Casio F91W - $11

Do you have any preference towards digital, quartz (battery powered), or automatic (mechanical)?

u/BokononWave · 4 pointsr/Watches

The Hamilton Khaki Field Quartz might be what you're looking for. Apparently 38mm, and there's one on the subreddit's front page too.

I've got an automatic Khaki King, and am quite pleased with it. In terms of value for money it's not quite at Seiko levels but probably as close as you'll get in the Swatch family.

One of Citizen's Eco-Drive watches would also be a good candidate. The strap it comes with is not so great, but the technology in the case is excellent. You'd be surprised how much a watch's look changes when you put a nice strap on it.

Edit: Added imgur mirror for last link.

u/random19 · 4 pointsr/malefashionadvice

for $70, i'm sure you can find any other nice leather strap you like, since I don't think you'd want the one i'm using.

u/thomaslw21 · 4 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I purchased this watch over a year ago, and it's still going strong. The retail price is over 100, but I believe it can be had on sale fairly easily if you look around.

It's an automatic, and I've seen some complaints about a loud tick, but that's not been the case at all for me. It's certainly more quiet than the Weekender by Timex, which may also interest you. My only complaint about the Rodina was that the strap it came with was terrible quality, which is unsurprising at the price point. I just purchased an assortment of NATO straps, including one leather, that I switch out frequently.

Another option, outside of the Timex, is this Seiko. It's another automatic, and it's regarded as one of the more reliable budget watches. Seiko has several other watches in the 50-150 price range you may be interested in, so I'd shop around for one that fits your criteria.

You have some options, but if I were you, I'd make my main focus reliability. A lot of cheap watches will stop working fairly quickly, and after that, it doesn't matter how pretty it is. It's now your most handsome paperweight. Stay away from brands like Invicta. If it looks like a Rolex but costs less than a trip to Olive Garden, it's probably trash.

Edit: Spelling errors.

>I'm a big fan of the Seiko SNK809 and was wondering if there was a "female version" of that lovely watch

It's not my place to get in on your relationship, but I would recommend buying her something based on what she likes. My SO wore an awfully hideous Baby-G until I took her shopping and we found a look she liked.

That said, I have no idea of Seiko makes a smaller women's version of that watch, and I don't know what specifically about it you like, but Citizen has some nice watches in that price range for women. This one is kind of similar. The SNK809 is also so small that there's no reason you couldn't just get it for her and put it on a more "feminine" strap. This one's vaguely ladylike, I guess.

You also might want a spring-bar tool to put it in. You can do it without a specialized tool but it makes it much easier. I have this one and it works great.

u/UsuallyJustLurking · 4 pointsr/Watches

I’ve been lurking on this sub for about a year now (username checks out) but this is my first post. My wife gave me the box as a wedding gift when we got married last month, so I figured it’s about time to share my collection. As you can probably tell, I’m not really a fan of bracelets, so I’ve been experimenting with nato and perlon straps. For reference, I have 6.75” wrists. And sorry for the crappy cell phone pictures, collecting watches is my new hobby, not photography! Below is a little story about each watch.


I’m 28 years old and I was never a watch guy until I saw a picture of someone wearing this watch last year. I knew nothing about watches when I purchased it, but for $50 I decided to pick one up. I love the clean dial and I think the black case goes well with the light brown band, but the loud ticking was a bit annoying. This was my only watch for about two months, but after spending a lot of time on this sub I decided to venture into the world of automatics. This is now my “beater” watch, and since the box only holds four watches, this one has been relegated to the nightstand drawer.


After reading r/watches high praise for Seiko 5s, I purchased one as my first automatic. I went with the blue dial because the Timex was black, and I really enjoy the color, especially in the sunlight. The stock band was pretty crappy, but I love this watch now that I switched over to a leather nato.


After purchasing the Seiko I was getting more and more interested in watches, and fell in love with Fliegers. I wanted a Stowa but couldn’t justify the price. After seeing a picture of a Tisell posted on this sub, I knew this would be my next watch. This is now my go to watch for work. The band is surprisingly good and the domed sapphire crystal really makes this watch stand out. My only complaints are the power reserve and lume could be better.


Spending more and more time on this sub, I knew I was getting hooked. The Rolex Polar Explorer II is one of my dream watches but I can’t quite afford one yet, so I had to find another white dial watch to hold me over. Again, based on this sub’s love of Orient, I decided on the Mako USA, and I’ve been extremely happy with the purchase. I wore this watch at my wedding and bought my groomsmen black and blue Makos for their gifts. Everyone was extremely pleased!


This is my most recent pickup, and what I’ve told myself is going to be my last watch for a while (yeah, right). The rest of my collection is made up of pretty simple/basic designs so I needed something a little louder. At first the dial looks a bit cluttered, but it’s actually very easy to read. I prefer mechanical watches, but if I’m going to go quartz, the Ecodrive is pretty cool tech… I guess it’s time for me to learn how to use a slide rule!

u/withfries · 4 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Nice! I have a Seiko 5 as well. In fact, I bought from Amazon too.

Just a heads up, if you do purchase, purchase from Amazon, and not one of their sellers (for example, Imperial Watches, the one linked). The reason is because Amazon is an authorized seller of Seiko 5s, and you will receive the Seiko warranty. If you purchase from one of the sellers, this is not so. In fact, it may not even be packaged in the blue Seiko box. I say this from experience - I bought one for my dad and it came in a black generic watch box.

Plus, it is an automatic watch - if anything is out of calibration, I sure don't want to open it. If there are any problems, you can simply exchange it through Amazon. I am sure the process with resellers would be more of a hassle.

You can just search for Seiko 5 blue, look at the sellers, and choose the Amazon. I've attached the links for you:

I bought this watch about 4 months ago or so. I love it. was around $50 USD and it was automatic. I plan on one day getting a Hamilton but for now this will do. I replaced the strap with a leather one and the watch feels like a whole new watch. Feels so different I'm enjoying it. Maybe doesn't really go with my uniform but it's OK. For now I'm happy but i have been eyeing a chrono though ever since i found out about automatic thats all i want so not sure if ill get a quartz chrono or save up. Dat Omega Speedmaster though.

Edit: its this watch with this strap. Make sure its the 18mm if you go for it they have a 20mm and 22mm.

u/Chizzholm · 4 pointsr/EDC

Timex Expedition is a great watch for value. It's a battery operated Quartz.

If your looking for an "automatic" check out the Seiko SNK. It's a lot more quality for still a good price.

Do some research on automatic vs quartz movements to decide what you want!

u/OwnedU2Fast · 4 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I was going to recommend the Timex Weekender but you seemed to already have looked at it. I'll recommend Rodina because you seem to like clean styles.

Heavily recommended around here is the Seiko 5 SNK8XX series. I have the SNK809 which is the black watch face and I absolutely love it. Can wear it with a black leather band/stainless steel one for dressy occasions or a NATO strap for casual wear.

Honestly, a Timex Weekender looks almost just about the same (arguably not as good), and it's also quartz.

Just slap on a leather bracelet on it, and you saved yourself $500.

u/AnElepahntCage · 4 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Is that really the only requirement? There are soooo many different options in that range. Here a few of my favorite in the area.

Orient Bambino

Orient Mako

Citizen Nighthawk

Seiko Orange Monster

Timex Weekender

Rodina Small Seconds

I can keep going, but more specificity is needed for a better suggestion.

u/AIS700 · 4 pointsr/washingtondc

Looks like the reflection of a typical wristwatch, with the cuff of a white button-down shirt in the upper left corner. In fact, from the image I’d guess that this is a Timex weekender watch, due to the rounded chrome face and large numerals. u/Barnst probably took this pic from a bus or while driving.

u/Pufflekun · 4 pointsr/adventuretime

It's nice, but you can get a Weekender for about the same price.

You could spend more money on a better color, but you can easily change the straps on Weekenders by just unthreading them, so I'd suggest going over to Crown & Buckle and picking out a strap that you like. This one looks incredible on red-second-hand Weekenders.

u/Baofog · 4 pointsr/Watches

I own one. It's super loud. Like don't take this thing into a movie theater because its all you will hear loud. I love it so much. Band is 20mm so feel free to get tons of bands just change out whenever. Although mine has a gold face unlike the silver in OP's picture. Same watch otherwise though.

Edit: Typo'd the bandwidth and I should read more closely But I'll leave this up in case anyone is curious about the watch.

u/CaneInvidiae · 4 pointsr/Watches

Something like [this] ( should tick the durable and comfortable boxes, though I don't think it can run multiple timers. It should definitely stand up to anything the football field can chuck at it.

u/MyCatBandit · 4 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Timex Expedition
is probably your best option

u/chorizobisque · 4 pointsr/CampingandHiking

I love my Timex Expedition.

Thinking of upgrading to a smart watch but waiting for the next gen. I like heart-rate and gps but think added features of blood pressure and EKG will really be worth it, so I wait.

edit: doubt now, people in tech seem to always push the boundaries of what we think is possible.

u/CyberNixon · 4 pointsr/BuyItForLife
u/orangeflavoredpants · 4 pointsr/Watches

You should take a look at the Seiko 5 series. Affordable and can be dressed down or up. Amazon has a bunch, and I believe Jomashop has a sale on them.
This is the original seiko 5, about $50 on Amazon. You can buy a leather strap, and it'll fit nicely within your budget.
Here is a dressier alternative at about $60. Don't know how it would look on leather though...
Hope this helps!

u/UJL123 · 4 pointsr/Watches

Can you give more information on what you want? You've mentioned minimal look, so no chronograph or anything fancy on the dial. But do you want a mechanical watch, quartz, solar etc?
Some watches people like to use as introduction watches are the Seiko SNK 809 or Orient Bambino . [Check out the guide in the side bar for more ideas] ( . Also whenever buying a watch, I would go with the bracelet option whenever possible and buy after market straps. This way you have more options, and the bracelets are often more expensive to get separately

u/TheOctophant · 4 pointsr/Watches

I guess the Seiko SNK is a better choice here

u/AGneissGeologist · 4 pointsr/EDC

I frequent /r/watches but I'm no expert and they would be able to give you better recommendations. That being said, I'm often at constructions sites doing work with concrete, vibrating machinery, heavy chains, etc so I do have experience working in rough conditions while still needing to look presentable when I'm at the office or laboratory.

Off the top of my head, here are my recommendations:

Bernhardt Field Watch. I wear this daily and my last post on /r/EDC has one which you can look at my history to see. I highly recommend this.

Seiko 5. It's an automatic so the moving parts have a higher chance of failing but it is used by many as a beater watch. It's tough enough to withstand a lot and cheap enough to replace. A leather band replacing the NATO strap will make it look more presentable. Again, I own this watch as well and I posted a picture of it in /r/watches.

Luminox has a reputation for being tough but the aesthetics might be close to G-Shock

Hamilton comes to mind as well, they make pretty good watches but I have no idea how well they hold up. The one I linked seems pretty robust.

u/Mastermachetier · 4 pointsr/Watchexchange $59 and similar straps around 30-40 bucks all together way cheaper then what your selling for. Realistically without knowing the strap brand info $40 bucks would be a big ask and the watch should be going between $35-40

u/h2oequalslean · 4 pointsr/FashionReps

obligatory Seiko 5 comment. if you cant find a seiko 5 model you like there are near infinite modding options and parts to choose from, so if you see something with a case shape you like you can replace the dial, hands, bezel insert, crystal etc. I've done one Seiko 5 mod for my dad myself and am working on my own SKX007 mod right now. great watches for the money, you can find some on amazon for ~60ish USD.

here's the mod i did for my dad, had it for about a month and its already pretty banged up lol. this was the base watch, which was around 70ish USD with the bracelet when i bought it:

and this is the finished mod, inspired by the Tudor Black Bay 36, but way less painful to see get scratched up and whatnot. i polished the case and swapped the dial. Dial was about 40 USD:

Closer Shot of Face

First step towards owning a collection of watches and I'm very happy with my purchase! It fits perfectly on my wrist and looks great.

I purchased the Seiko 5 off of Amazon: Here

I also bought a leather strap for the watch, but I couldn't find a 16.8mm one so I decided to get a 18mm one and people said something about the leather being able to stretch or something to that extent. If anyone has any experience with band swapping on the SNK809, any help would be appreciative.

You can literally buy a new seiko 5 for around that price

u/ChocolateWatch · 4 pointsr/EDC

Check out the Seiko 5 SNK809 series too. $20 more than the Weekender, but much more watch for your buck. 21 jewel automatic movement so it never runs out of juice, water resistant to 30m like the Timex, day and date display, exhibition back, and stainless steel construction rather than brass. Available in black, khaki and green.

If you're still not sure, check it out on Youtube and note how the second hand sweeps rather than ticks. Quality watch. It comes with a NATO style nylon strap but looks great with a brown leather strap too.

u/space-butler · 4 pointsr/Watches

The Bauhaus style watches appear to wear very big even if their measurements aren't physically big. Take the Braithwait for example - they are 40mm but check out the dial, it stretches across almost the entire 40mm width, with hardly any bezel, and minimal detail on an otherwise spartan dial. That is going to appear very big on the wrist.

My tip is, when looking at these styles, try to keep it back closer towards the 37mm mark if that is what he is used to wearing.

Check out this one as an example. I have recommended it elsewhere as a good budget minimalist watch but by a happy coincidence it works out to be that perfect size. 98H51 is similar version with a two-tone case and a bit of detail on the dial.

u/reverendnathan · 3 pointsr/todayilearned

Here's a video of one in action. The slide rule was replaced by the calculator, which in turn replaced the slide rule watch with the calculator watch, which is absolutely the best way to get your ass kicked and high school for being such a dork.

That said, I think it's awesome if you know how to operate a slide rule in this day and age. People'll be like, "What are you doing to your watch over there?", and then you'll all be like, "Bitch, I'm doing science"!

u/Lifebystairs · 3 pointsr/Watches

I really like Casio calculator watches but the crappy rubber straps always disintegrate after a few months. Would any kind of NATO strap work on it?

In addition to the other two replies: As alternatives you might want to look into Seiko. They have a lot of watches that might suite you.
This or this from Bulova look similar to the DW ones.
Maybe even a Tissot Watch although they might be more expensive, but have Sapphire Crystals which are more scratch resistant.

I linked to Amazon because it has quite a nice panel showing pictures of the watches.

u/BigMoufPosy · 3 pointsr/Watches

Check out Bulova

Rose gold w/ textured dial

At 37mm it's actually smaller than the Meller one.

Timex Fairfield 37mm

u/KamikazeRain · 3 pointsr/Watches

You definitely have options here. As the other person said there are a lot of different Seiko 5's that are pretty minimalist and under $100, so you could just pick any one and buy with confidence. All of the Seiko 5's will be mechanical automatics.


I also second the Timex recommendation. You should check out the Fairfield Collection and the Metropolitan which are both quartz. One thing to note about Timex is that the ticking can be pretty loud on some of their watches. It bothers some people, some it doesn't. Just take that into account if you work in a quiet environment because it will be audible. The Metropolitan does not have this problem as it lacks a second's hand, and neither do many of their chronographs or sub-seconds.


For something a little more dressy there's the Orient Capital v2 quartz. Idk how flexible you are on price, but for a little but more you can get the Orient gen. 2 v3 Bambino. The Bambino line are automatics, and come in a variety of different styles and colors all for around $100 - $200.


From Citizen in that style take a look at the BE9170 which is a standard quartz sub-seconds. But what Citizen has really become known for is their Eco-Drive movement, which is a fancy way of saying solar-powered (Seiko and some other brands do solar-powered watches, but Citizen arguably does it the best). My picks for you would be the Chandler (also comes in black and a dark blue), or the AU1040-08E/AU1043-00E which are all solar. Again, not sure if you're flexible on pricing, but for a bit more you have the NH8350 line which are mechanical automatics, and for a bit more than that there's the AU1080 line which are solar, and also net you a very scratch resistant sapphire crystal.


Some that are a little above budget, but worth mentioning is the Tissot Everytime line to scratch that "Swiss Made" itch, which are Swiss quartz and have sapphire crystals, and the more obscure Tisell Bauhaus, a Miyota mechanical automatic coming from a Korean watchmaker and which is pretty much a direct copy of the Nomos Tangente, but is still a reputable brand nonetheless.


In general for under or around $100 the main brands you're probably going to want to be looking at are Casio, Timex, Bulova (the 96B104 and 97B100, for example), Citizen, Seiko, and Orient.

u/StillFlyingHigh · 3 pointsr/Watches

G-shock GWM5610 (as well as many other g-shocks) has a countdown feature by the minute and multiple alarms that you can set to a specific time. With that being said, it's got a bunch of other features such as atomic syncing and timezones that may be unnecessary to your needs so if you want something cheaper, the DW5600 is also available with the features that you requested.

($104.50 USD)

($38.75 USD)

There are countdown timers for some Timex digital watches too!
Look into the Expedition and Ironman lines!

u/Tomes2789 · 3 pointsr/Watches

Yes, it actually does!

I tend to get shirts that, while tight on my body (I'm pretty in shape, no humble-brag intended), are still loose on the wrist so that I can fit big(ger) watches.

Even so, it plays a bit bigger than it actually is, so I can pull it off in the office without it looking ridiculous.

There are also slimmer versions of G-SHOCKs that will easily fit under a dress shirt, such as this one (which I'm probably going to pick up next haha).

  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.

I got a 40.00 watch watch on Amazon and it's worked great. I've been on over 200 dives with it with no issues.

But if it's a dive computer your needing, that's different.

Personally, I don't think beginners should train with a computer. You need to know how to use tables and plan a dive without one. If you're only being taught to use a computer I would worry about what other essential aspects of diving aren't being taught in the class.

I was a dive master and scientific diver before I got a computer. A watch and wet notes/slate should be enough to get you started.

You should have a console with a depth gauge. There will be a red needle that moves with your depth gauge that stays at the maximum depth reached. Make sure to log your time in, time out, and maximum depth each dive. That's all you need to run your tables.

Don't hate on Casio to much. They sell one of the best watches per dollar: the Casio MDV

u/foozybear · 3 pointsr/Watches

This seems to suit your needs and should be good for water sports, you can change out the rubber for a NATO and since they're easily interchangeable you can swap them quickly for different looks.

u/NowHerePresent · 3 pointsr/Watchexchange

hate to sidetrack your thread, but have you considered these? a daily driver for a carpenter, first thing that comes to mind is a g-shock. indestructible, holds perfect time, and features you could use. I listed a few others for you. Personally. I would get one of these 3, and wear a 007 after work/weekends. IMO, wear and tear is only cool on vintage watches. I agree, 007 is a super sturdy watch, but i'd be a little funny shaking it that much during hard work. Cheers! :D

u/ofeots · 3 pointsr/Watches

Take a look at the Casio MDV-106. Its going for less than $40 right now, so you can use the rest of your budget to get a new strap.

Here's a review I did of mine a while ago.

u/KansasCityThief · 3 pointsr/JamesBond

I bought this Casio watch from Amazon, and the black and grey NATO strap, and just swapped out the rubber strap for the NATO one myself.

I am new to the watch & reddit game. Read posts on reddit and went out and got the Casio EF503D-1AV for $39.99 (Super deal somehow, thanks camelcamelcamel) + Croc strap $12.71 & the MDV106-1AV for $40.99 with the NATO strap for $5.95. Two watches and two straps for $99.64. I love them both. The straps are from Clockwork Synergy straps using a 15% coupon. Thanks for the help.

Then theres the Seiko Skx007 if you want a better quality entry level automatic diver.

u/jmcrofts · 3 pointsr/Watches

Buy a strap from wherever (hirsch is pretty good and if there's a watch boutique or kiosk near you, they'll probably switch it out for free. Or you can buy a spring bar tool and do it yourself

u/VashTStamp · 3 pointsr/Watches

Both the watches are capable of having a NATO band on them. Personally, I think that the classic silver T2H281 would look best with a wider variety of NATO bands. It's also kind of the watch I like more in general of the two, so I could be a little biased.

You are going to want to buy a tool to remove the spring bars in the band/strap which hold the strap to the lugs of the watch. Different watches have different lug width. Both of the watches you were looking at where 18 mm lug width, so you are going to want to order an 18 mm NATO band to accompany, along with your spring bar tool.

AND since I am being extra nice today I went ahead and showed you what a NATO strap entails and how to put it on.

Step One: remove the strap with the spring bar tool.

Step Two: notice the spring bar within the strap, remove this and place back in between watch lugs.

Step Three: The watch should now look like this after the spring bars are put back on, lay out the NATO strap next to it exactly like so.

Step Four: Weave through the watch spring bars like so, and then weave the main band through the metal bar I am holding in order to secure the watch to the NATO band.

Step Five: End result with complimentary wrist shot, showing the spring bar tool and leather band I removed (which I happen to often wear). Loop excess strap through the bars on the NATO strap like pictured.

Good luck my friend, Cheers!

u/TheSuperChronics · 3 pointsr/Watches

bergeon 6767-F is the best. As other people said, other ones on Amazon are okay, like this one, but like in all aspects of life.. you get what you pay for.

The Bergeon is far better build quality and feels sturdier. The cheap one I posted is decent, but it doesn't feel that well made and the tips aren't great. Someone said the Burgeon F for bracelets and some other model for other bands, but If you get the F model (one I posted) it will work find for leather/rubber bands. The other way around not so much, because the F has a finer tip. So if you're only getting one, get the Burgeon 6767-F

Source: I have both spring bar remover tools that I linked

I bought the cheaper one first thinking, how can there be a difference ? Ever since buying the Burgeon one, I haven't used the cheaper, crappier one. Go for quality

u/ABrownBlackBear · 3 pointsr/Watches

> i was wondering what i should get as a replacement. Still leather, and if yes, same color?

Seems versatile. I'd say google image search around and see what strikes you; e.g.:

lighter brown leather, contrast stitching?

tan leather, black stitching?

red leather?


This watch has enough of a military feel that it could look good on a NATO strap as well, and those come in all colors and can be changed without a spring bar tool though you'll want to buy one of those anyway.

My point is, variety is good. It's like having more than one watch, but much much cheaper. Just make sure you get the right width (probably 22mm).

Also look at what people have done with their Sinn pilot watches, particularly the 656, which has a similar dial. If you wear leather shoes most days/at work, consider matching. Crown & Buckle is often a recommended place to start shopping.

u/toxicavenger70 · 3 pointsr/Watches

You can use a small eye glass screw drive to remove the spring bars. But the best tool to use without breaking the bank is this one

u/jjphoto · 3 pointsr/pebble

They make small tools to make it easier, but you can do it with any thin, flat tool.

Here's an easy video that shows you how. I'd recommend NOT using a knife, as you don't want to cut the band - a small flat-head screw-driver, or even a thin metal putty knife would do the job nicely.

Does that help?

u/melomaverick · 3 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

I also just bought an edifice and the black and gray strap. This edifice is a bitch to take the straps off. I have a few tools and I could only get it off with the smallest one. This is the tool you need ([here]. The triangle shaped end is what you use.

It's worth the effort, looks fuckin great on that black and gray strap!

u/sf_techie · 3 pointsr/moto360

By the way from another comment reply I saw that you were gonna use the tool it came with to remove the leather band/install the shank band.

Don't use it, it was meant to remove the band off of the pebble steel not the moto360.
Instead also order this: and use the smaller end to remove the band safely.

You could also use a very thin flathead but I have heard people scratching or cracking the moto360 if they aren't very careful.

u/Nothingcreativeatm · 3 pointsr/Watches

Its really easy to do yourself-I watched a youtube video the first time. The tool is $6 or so on amazon here. The strap will cost anywhere from $15 to several hundred, depending on which you get. Crown and buckle is a popular vendor here.

u/fsh5 · 3 pointsr/Seiko

I think the Seiko 5 with the 2-piece fabric strap would be a great watch for an interested kid.

It's casual, an automatic, and smaller at 37mm. $79.99 for the blue on Amazon:

Seiko Men's SNK807 Seiko 5 Automatic Stainless Steel Watch with Blue Canvas Band

u/nessgreen · 3 pointsr/Watches

The font on the Xentum is pretty unique. If that's what you like most about the watch I'm not sure where to point you. That said, the Timex weekender has a similar simple white face and you could easily swap in a red nato strap for another $15 bucks. I'd recommend a Seiko809 over the Timex because I feel like it's better bang for your dollar but, to my knowledge, they do not offer it with a white face.

Something about that watch sorta reminds me of this Braun watch but I'm not sure swapping the strap would be as easy/possible.

u/AlexaviortheBravier · 3 pointsr/ftm

My first watch was this Seiko. I liked that it was mechanical and that it was casual and not a large watch. You can also replace the bands with other ones which can really change the appearance. I did have an issue where the tightest hole was a tad too big so I ended up making my own. I have really small wrists.

u/nlofe · 3 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

I got this solar atomic G-Shock years ago and it still holds up just as well as when I got it. My only regret is not getting the cooler-looking monochrome Japanese-imported one for like $20 more.

u/lx4 · 3 pointsr/gshock

Unless your boyfriend is a watch geek he likely just means that he wants a g shock square, and not the specific model. There are lots of different models and colors. Just google g shock squares.

This is the standard model. If your boyfriend is interested technology you have one that is solar powered and syncs with an atomic clock via radio signals, my personal favorite.

u/ckvoss77 · 3 pointsr/EDCexchange

With the $5 off in coupons from aliexpress and the $92.45 price of the watch on amazon, someone could build this exact setup, brand new, and with the original resin housing and band for cheaper than your asking price ($151.04).

That said, how much can you come down on the price of the watch?

u/shyguythrowaway · 3 pointsr/Watches

Yeah, I think you might be right.

u/UpYourButtJobu · 3 pointsr/Watches

You'll want something very conservative and dressy, IMO. Nothing pretentious, blingy, or large. With black tuxes, you can't go wrong with a light dial, black leather strap, indicators instead of numerals. In your price range, this Bulova may fit the bill. If you can find something like this without a date complication, even better. Good luck and congratulations!

Camera was malfunctioning, hence the weird spots on the photos. Sorry.

The spec

  • 38mm diameter
  • Japanese quartz
  • Sapphire crystal
  • Dark-brown strap
  • 20mm lug width

    I bought this timepiece from the Island Watch online store for $99. I was a little bit concerned because the model number was indicated on the website wrongly. However, turns out that it was a simple error and no problem at all.

    Great place to buy a watch. They give out free cleaning clothes too.

    I was also interested in Bulova 96B104. But figured out the Orient has sapphire crystal.

    A short review

  • Face was little more reflective(or glossy) than I expected. But looks good.
  • Strap was little more dark & glossy than I thought. Looks great.
  • Strap color seemingly changes between dark brown and black depending on the lighting.
  • The "Water Resist" written in cursive letter doesn't bother the simple look at all.
  • Awesome overall

    I will come back with performance review later.

u/Laschow · 3 pointsr/minimalism

My go-to dress-watch is a Bulova 96B104. I think it has a fairly minimalist design while still remaining functional and goes well with formal clothing. Obviously not shower-proof, though. I don't like the idea of wearing a watch in the shower, honestly, I'd always worry about it and it's no trouble at all to take it off.

Hi, you might want to see this: Seiko SNK793. It's 66.33 Canadian dollars, about 52 USD. I'm also considering getting one with a white or beige dial but I don't like the date function.

u/chaching37 · 3 pointsr/Watches

It's not the case that I care for OP or even Seiko for that matter. What I'm trying to see is whether or not you could reinforce your aforementioned statement that the Seiko 5 mov't is 'weak.'

Your earlier arguments were against the cases being of foiled base metal? Most of what I've looked at are fully stainless steel.

Please don't make the assumption that, because I'm arguing a point, I am forcibly against you in all manners. I'm just trying to see the rationale behind your earlier statements. Other than anecdotal evidence, I still have no reason to believe that the Seiko 5 is best used as an experiment watch? What truly makes it less likely of a candidate than a Vostok? Or as you've mentioned, the Sandoz?

u/Esti88 · 3 pointsr/Watches

This is my first watch and I don't want to spend over 200. I have really small wrists slightly over 6 cm around so I assume I should stick to a lower case size like 38 mm (?) Anyways here are the watches I'm currently looking at and would love some options from you veterans.

Watches I'm currently looking at:

Seiko snk793

Seiko skx013

Movado Museum

Skagen Mother of Pearl

Plan to use the watch everyday, so something casual but not too dressy as to the point that it looks like it doesn't belong.

Quickly looking through this sub I see that Seiko gets a lot of love and Skagen is labeled as a fashion brand. I think Skagen has the best design of the watches I listened then followed by the Movado because it's so clean. However, I don't know the quality of any of these products. I believe these are all automatic so I won't have to manually wind any of these, correct?

These watches are all slightly more than $50. Seiko is a reputable brand. The watches should be fairly durable, though not as reliable as something more expensive. All three are automatics and the first two have exhibition case backs so you can see the inner workings.

IMO, i would steer clear of two tone watches (gold and silver) as they can look tacky if not done right.

buy a clean watch. if you want a bit more formal, white dials are not a bad way to go. the timex you listed in all "steel" is good

also, a seiko 5 such as this one is a good bet (remember usually bezels are considered a bit sportier). see if you can change the nato to a leather strap to dress it up a bit more.

u/DapperDanTheMan · 3 pointsr/Watches

You could also find modded ones on /r/Watchexchange that might have swapped dials more to your liking.

u/grand_royal · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I just got my first Seiko 5. The watch is on the smaller side, so it actually fits under my dress shirts. It is very nice reasonably priced workhorse of a watch. It seems to hold its time perfectly, +/- 1 second over 3-4 days. I will probably change the band to leather, but that is not a big deal. I may end up getting one in another color, I like it that much.

u/Magichamsterorgy · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Citizen Eco Drives go on sale for <$100 pretty often, just check /r/frugalmalefashion regularly. That's the best casual watch in your price range, imo. If you want a different band just check out or NATO Strap Co.

If you don't mind a slightly heavier/thicker case then check out the Seiko 5 line. They're $50 and mechanical (self-powered, no batteries), and extremely well-made for the price.

u/pittsburgh924 · 3 pointsr/Watches
u/MintyHippo21 · 3 pointsr/Watches

Owner of SNK809, and I don't know if another automatic watch can compete with it at the price point. Solid build quality, keeps good time, not large (I hate big watches despite having bigger wrists), great company behind it, and it has the field watch look that I think is great for everyday wear. I insist that if buying, you buy new strap(s) as the one it comes with it garbage.

If your budget is less than 100, I'd recommend looking at quartz watches. My dad isn't as into watches, for him it's just a tool. So I wouldn't want him to deal with the downsides of a mechanical watch (i.e. inaccuracies over time, stops if not worn).

Maybe look at some timex weekender styles, they have a lot of interesting designs:

u/jmdexo26 · 3 pointsr/Watches

Some recommendations by Seiko, who I always recommend for a good cheap watch, and as for the strap, easy to replace with a nice leather band, metal isn't as heavy as you think it is either.

Hey all,

Any advice about best time/place to buy the following:

  1. High quality Orvis/Barbour/Filson field jacket. I really like the Orvis Heritage Field Coat or a Barbour Ashby Midas. (XL/XXL/LT). Open to other options. Just like the classing field jacket/barn/chore coat type look. Ideally will be water proof as I plan to wear it for 3 seasons with layering.
  2. $70- $100 Field watch with nylon band. Probably a Seiko or Citizen. I like this watch for reference and am wondering if it will ever get cheaper:

    EDIT: Wouldn't mind finding a watch that's a little bigger, maybe 40/42+mm.
u/Karamazov · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I always thought that Citizen had really good watches. I have this one and a couple different straps to use on it. I know it is a bit plain, but it is durable as hell. Also, it is good thickness and size and is comfortable to wear.

I prefer the leather and cloth strap varieties because then the strap is usually interchangeable. Because the face of my watch is so basic looking, it can be matched with virtually any sort of strap. Currently, my favorite is [this one from Crown and Buckle.] (

u/Majorminormajor · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

My personal opinion is no. The general advice is to buy a watch from a watch company, rather than a company that puts its brand on another company's watch.

What draws you to this watch? It kind of looks like you like simple black watches. Do you like large watches? Do you like field watches? Do you care about quartz (battery powered) vs. automatic (a weight swings around in the back and winds the spring; less accurate, kind of cooler, more expensive to service in five years). Like pencilcup said, field watches are a very casual style.

u/theFunkiestButtLovin · 3 pointsr/EDC

dude! I was going to post this exact watch today. a true classic. the watch has history, and is iconic.

the band gets sweaty, though. I replaced it with a gray perlon strap from amazon. now it's super lightweight and the band keeps dry. you do need to wash the perlon band in the shower or it will get stinky.

if you like this watch, I would recommend the seiko 5 of your choice, also paired with a perlon strap. you can easily slide the seiko 5 on and off different colors of perlon band. I like the cream-face seiko 5 for how well it pairs with any strap color.

are all colors that go well with that watch.

Top of the list is the Orient Explorer, I've always wanted a slide rule watch and I think this one is a real beaut for the price.

Next up is a Seiko 5 beige I want a nice watch that can go with any casual outfit, I plan to put a bond nato on it

Last but not least another Orient, I've agonized over which watch to get that has that retro 50's flair that i love but it came down to the tissot visodate and the Orient bambino in the end I went with Orient because when I saw the tissot in person at a watch shop it just didnt look like a 500 dollar watch to me the band especially looked cheap and plasticky :(, I've seen the bambino in person too and i was honostly floored by the quality of it. I dont think the Orient logo goes well with the 50's style but I'm willing to overlook it. I think eventually I'll get a Hamilton Jazzmaster of some kind but for now I'll settle for the Orient.

Ecru bomber jacket

I dig the jacket a lot but would maybe prefer something with the more classic zipper look, like this. Any recs?

I also like this Seiko 5 watch, would probably replace the strap with some dark leather. Someone make me pull the trigger.

u/allan37825 · 3 pointsr/Watches

Hi yall,

I am new to this hobby and looking for a low-cost watch that is casual smart. I've read way too many reviews, but still cannot decide which one deserves my hard earn cash.

Current Options:

u/X-FER · 3 pointsr/Watches

Great review. It's still $57 on Amazon, it's an excellent price for an automatic. But I figure with that price, you get what you pay for. Thought about getting one of these myself.

u/jwestbrook23 · 3 pointsr/NavyBlazer

its a seiko 5 w a nato strap.

u/Billy_Brubaker · 3 pointsr/Watches

$15 on Amazon, just do it.

Edit- honestly, I like my F-91W way more though.

u/tcypher · 3 pointsr/BacktotheFuture

u/tropicflite · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

With shipping it's still $10 less than Amazon

u/AsianEnigma · 3 pointsr/Watches

For quartz I would recommend Citizen. Maybe something like this?

(A little over your price I know)

However if your reason for wanting Quartz is because you don't want to wind a mechanical, why not get an Automatic?
(Also available in Blue, Green, And Tan.)

also could you elaborate on what you want in the face of the watch? And measure your wrist circumference so we can judge how big of watch you can wear without it looking comical.

EDIT: I should clarify. An automatic watch is a mechanical watch that has a weighted piece in the back, called a rotor, which swings with the movement of your arm. The rotor winds the watch. And if you wear it everyday. It will probably never die on you.

u/Unknown_dino · 3 pointsr/Watches
This should fix it up so much you’ll think it’s brand new!

u/rx72000 · 3 pointsr/Watches

Seiko. Will likely want a chronograph at some point but let him pick that. Here is what I would go for
SEIKO MECHANICAL × Shinobu Ishigaki SARB065 Men's. On sale and in budget at Amazon.

u/ernieb595 · 3 pointsr/Watches

With that kind of budget you've got a lot of options!

Some qualifying questions, though for more specific recommendations: Automatic, Mechanical, or Quartz (or do you care)? General dress (suit, business casual, etc..)? Wrist size?

Some off the cuff ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) suggestions:

Tissot Visodate

Orient Bambino

Junkers Bauhaus

Seiko Cocktail Time This one is flashier than it sounds like you want but Jesus Christ is it beautiful..


Just to name a few!

u/Aype · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

With your budget, the three best options (in my opinion) would be a [Tissot Visodate,] ( a Seiko Cocktail Time, or an Orient Bambino. These are the best sub $500 dress watches you can get. Check out /r/watches simple questions thread if you have any more questions

u/Desmocratic · 3 pointsr/Watches

Well, I have always thought the 'Cocktail Time' Seiko is pretty dressy for under $1K, The top review on Amazon "THE best dress watch you will find under $1,000", need I say more ;)

u/vese · 3 pointsr/Watches

It doesn't look good in the pictures on the website, same as a lot of watches... eg the cocktail time

Looks way better in person.

u/SirLaxer · 3 pointsr/Watches

Exactly. A watch is like a pair of shoes: you wouldn't wear penny loafers when going out for a run, and you wouldn't wear sneakers at a funeral. There are a ton of different kinds of watches (like the Rolex Submariner compared to an Omega Speedster...different functions for different types of people and different activities), and within those categories there are different stylistic choices that are based on personal tastes (modern and sleek, big and bulky, etc).

I could recommend something like the Hamilton Khaki Field, or something like a Seiko diver, or a Citizen Eco-Drive chronograph, or the popular Seiko SARB065. Very different watches for different types of people and different occasions.

u/bscepter · 3 pointsr/Watches

I've been eyeing this guy for a couple of years now. It almost seemed too good to be true for the price, but now that it's on my wrist, I can see why this has become a cult watch of sorts.

Fit and finish are excellent. The rotor is finished with Geneva waves, which is a nice touch on an otherwise undecorated movement. And the face is just gorgeous. It’s not as blue as it looks in the Amazon listing, but it does have a hint of blue, depending on the light. It comes with a patent-leather strap on a deployant clasp, which is a classy touch.

The only issue I have is its size. Up until now, my largest watch has been my 16610 Submariner, which is a 40mm watch, including its bezel. This is a 40mm watch with a larger face than the sub, so it just seems huge to me. Plus, my dressier watches (Datejust, Vulcain, Omega) are vintage, so they’re smaller (36mm, 35mm and 34mm), which makes this seem quite large. I’m sure I’ll get used to it though.

In any case (pun not intended), it’s a heck of a lot of watch for the price.

u/RandomLatte · 3 pointsr/Watches

> cktail?
> I've been looking and the cheapest is on ebay for 370 but hesitant cuz ebay but from a grey dealer from Japan. Long island just restock and up their prices and it's pretty high 430? Or something.

u/ezanagar · 3 pointsr/Watches
u/svickn · 3 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Well, depending on the version it could use either. I've got one that is 20mm and a friend has an 18mm. If you can find your weekender on Amazon you ought to be able to find the band width listed. For instance:

u/enano9314 · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I just bought this TimeX Weekender with an olive band. I normally wear watches with leather straps or rubber, but I have noticed that the holes on this watch seem to really be pulling, even after just a few wears. Using the 3rd hole is much too loose and causes the watch to flop all over my wrist, and using the 4th hole is a much more comfortable fit, but causes the hole to "pull" a fair bit, but it is still loose enough for me to fit my finders under. So I don't understand why this band seems to be doing this, it doesn't feel cheap!

Any ideas?

u/YesIWantThat · 3 pointsr/Watches

Seiko SNK809 is a great watch for starters and is very popular in this sub. The Timex Weekender is an alternative if you're a little tight on the budget or prefer quartz over automatic watches. And finally there is also the Classic Gold Casio if your teenager in particular wants to be a true OG.

u/Xiphoid_Process · 3 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Paid $29 for mine on Amazon. Bought three different ones at that price and love 'em all!

u/Do_Not_Go_In_There · 3 pointsr/Watches

Timex has some watches, specifically the Expedition model, that fit in that price range, are 40mm dials, and have some darker models, but doesn't have lume, instead you push the crown down and it lights up. The bands are nylon or leather. They go for around $40 USD. The Weekender might work too. They're very good watches, but be warned that Timex watches tend to tick loudly.

Then there's the Casio dive watches (the MDV106 gets recommended a lot, but mostly because of it's appearance, there are other models that you might prefer over it, just search for "casio dive"), it has lume (e: the lume on these watches is apparently not that great, thanks /u/mojojojoborras) and is about $10-35 USD. It has a plastic band. It's very big though (44mm, I'm told the size on amazon is wrong), and some don't have arabic numerals.

Then there's the Seiko 5 SNZG17K1 if you want an automatic watch, it is 42 mm black watch face and with lume and a dark grey metal band. Amazon has it for $169 USD. Since it's automatic you will likely need to set the time each morning (unless you buy a watch winder).

I can vouch for Timex and Casio being solid brands, and have an Expedition myself that works great (with a new strap at least), and Seiko is a brand that a lot of people here recommend very often.

u/pelicularities · 3 pointsr/EDC

I'd try to build this EDC with the assumption that I could keep it for years (if not indefinitely):

Wallet: allett Ultra Slim Sport Wallet - $15

Knife: Opinel No. 6 Carbon - $12

Multitool: Leatherman Style PS - $25

Light: Olight i3s - $15

Pen: Zebra Sarasa Clip - $3

Watch: Timex Weekender - a variant under $30

I EDC a Style PS right now, and have EDCed the Olight i3s and Zebra Sarasa Clip in the past. I own (but have never EDCed) an Opinel No. 8 stainless, and it's excellent, but I wish it were smaller and could sharpen up even more, so No. 6 carbon it is. I've handled allett wallets in stores and trust their usability and quality. The Timex Weekender is the only one on this list that I haven't had direct experience with, but it's the cheapest watch I could find that I'd feel I could keep for a long time.

I would consider any tailstanding AAA light under $15 with a reasonable high and low. I went with the Olight i3s because I've used it, but I'd also take the Lumintop Worm or Thrunite Ti3 if I could get it under $15.

u/EbayNachos · 3 pointsr/Watches
u/hipsterasshipster · 3 pointsr/Portland

Depending on what you are looking for, here are a couple of recommendations to keep your eyes peeled for while shopping. You might be able to find them at various stores around town, but I’ve sourced mine from Amazon with no issues:

Casio Men's AE1200WHD-1A Stainless Steel Digital Watch - World Time

This guy looks sharp, has a metal band, and hosts quite a few features such as: light, alarm, timer, stopwatch, and date display. Kind of a “dad watch” but very clean and practical for the price.

Casio Men's MDV106-1AV 200M Duro Analog Watch, Black

This is a cool diver watch that is a huge bang for your buck. It looks quite a bit more expensive than it actually is. Has a one-way rotating bezel (dive function) that is very secure, a locking crown, and you can swap the band to tailor the look to what you are wearing. It is actually water resistant and I have seen people use it while diving. I put a striped nylon strap on mine to get that James Bond Rolex Submariner vibe.

Seiko Men's SNK809 Seiko 5 Automatic Stainless Steel Watch with Black Canvas Strap

This is probably my personal favorite. You can get it in a couple of different color schemes and I got mine (black) for around $60. This is an automatic watch so there are no batteries. It winds as you move, which is great if you wear it everyday, but not so much if you swap it out for a couple of days. It’s pretty small and lightweight and the lume (glow in the dark, Seiko is usually regarded at being very good for it) on the face is insane. While backpacking I’ve woken up in the middle night with the face still glowing as if I had just flashed it with light. You can swap the band on this as well, and I’ve found the NATO straps to be a little nicer than the standard canvas strap. It’s isn’t as dressy, but definitely a great watch. The movement is also a pretty unique Japanese movement that scrolls like most higher end watches instead of “tick tick tick” which can be loud and annoying at times.

There is also the Timex Weekender option. They are pretty cheap and you can find them everywhere. They are available in a ton of color options so for $100 you could probably grab a few different styles. They make a bunch of designs of them as well, but they are definitely just cheap everyday watches and can be quite loud.

u/themightyguapo · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

There's a reason MFA (and other sources) consistently recommend the Timex Weekender over just about any other sub-$100 watch. It's simple, it's versatile and the easily-exchanged watchband means it can match just about anything. It has garnered me far more compliments than a $30 watch should.

Unfortunately, that Casio is complicated, incredibly informal, and digital - which adds up to a significantly less fashionable, more despised watch than you probably want on your wrist.

u/Wheezin_Ed · 3 pointsr/thelastofus

Like you said, it doesn't look like the greatest watch and is way overpriced for what it is. I suspect you might get a similar quality watch or even better by getting parts yourself.

If anyone is interested in doing this, I took the liberty of finding a few watches with faces that look somewhat like Joel's, especially the first which is probably perfect.

Watch 1

Watch 2

Watch 3

Lastly, just buy the green NATO strap separate and you should be good. This one is cheap and comes with a tool.


None are exact, but considering most don't like the cartoonish look of the official one, I think there's some personal choice. Hope this helps everyone!

u/Offish · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I think this is your best bet:

These are going to be out of your target price range, but maybe you'll be interested to know that there are similar Hamilton vintage watches out there.

u/potato1 · 3 pointsr/RedditForGrownups

Depending on what you're looking for in a watch (basically as long as you don't mean a dress watch), there are good looking watches that don't cost $100. The Timex Weekender, for example, is a favorite of Reddit's fashion communities.

u/zanglang · 3 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Total cost (in USD):

  • Timex Weekender with Olive strap - $19.99 sale
  • ComGateway shipping for a single 500g package to Singapore - $14.71

    = US$34.70 ~ approximately RM114.56

    Shipping to Malaysia is generally about twice as expensive as Singapore, so you can consider asking for a quote from cheaper forwarders like vPost, Borderlinx and some other guys operating out of, or set up a mass-order to save shipping too.
u/Prinkster · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice
u/skepticaljesus · 3 pointsr/Watches

If you go month to month, it costs $30. I think you'd get a much, much better bang for your buck buying a Timex Weekender on Amazon:

If that's not your style, and you're really, truly not sure what you want, doing watchgang for a single month is probably not the very worst thing in the world. You definitely won't be getting a $30 watch. In honesty, I would be quite surprised if you got a $10 watch.

But if you're ok with the fact that you're paying a fee to someone to send you a random watch they sourced for as cheap as they possibly could as a way of helping to refine your style, then that's cool. There's worse uses of money out there.

u/Transmaniacon89 · 3 pointsr/Watches

I’d go for a Timex Weekender: Timex Unisex T2N651 Weekender Olive Nylon Slip-Thru Strap Watch

Comes in a ton of colors ranging from $30-50.

Timex Weekender Unisex 38mm on Amazon for less than $40.

Timex Unisex T2N651 Weekender Olive Nylon Slip-Thru Strap Watch

u/27iota · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

If you just want something that's relatively minimal, even a Timex will be fine for you. You can always switch out the strap for something more formal, like leather or metal - I wear a Timex Weekender with a leather strap most days at work.

If you're interested in delving more deeply r/watches is a good resource, although their tastes skew expensive. There's a style summary that can give you some ideas about styles and brands to search for. If you want super minimalist stuff, I'd look into Bauhaus styles (which is where my preferences are), but those tend to be more formal looking.

u/theultrayik · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

>it needs to have probably a plastic (barf) band, because of all the oil/gas/grease that it will undoubtedly be subjected to.

Oil degrades plastic. He'd probably be best off with a nylon band. You're also really not going to get anything too "rugged," since we're in the laughably cheap price range.

I'd recommend this guy

u/lpd10574 · 3 pointsr/EDC

So I know it's become a bit of a joke in MFA about how much we suggest these shoes, but I think you'd probably like the Clarks Desert Boot in the 'beeswax' or 'sand suede' color.

They're relatively cheap, of decent quality, and should be able to work in a wide variety of outfits.

u/eggs_and_steak · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

like common_sense_ffs said, they're desert/chukka boots. They're versatile, often durable, and really basic. They work with a smart casual style (definitely not rugged) and they're one of the most recommended types of shoes for beginners here on MFA. You can get pretty good ones for under $100 from Clarks or L.L. Bean.

u/2cubetaing · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

u/woobwoobwoob · 3 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Dang. To be fair, the company closed down, so I'm not too surprised - they're essentially just selling the leftovers now.

To be honest, I just got into this fashion thing recently (2 months ago?) myself. I can't say I know too many others specifically like the Simple in that price range, but a google image search for "chukka" or "desert boot" yields a ton of examples.

I'd check /r/frugalmalefashion for sales - for example, the Lands End Jackson Chukka is a good cheap alternative to the now-famous (and MFA classic) Clark's Desert Boot. I just got a pair myself, and they're very solid for the price. Admittedly they're more on the formal side than the Simple shoes, but there are plenty of less fancy chukka options (Vans even makes a pair, but their sole is kinda ugly IMO).

Unfortunately, it looks like they're sold out of the Tan ones, but if you don't mind a dark brown (better for winter) look, they might have your size hanging around. Other good options are the current half-annual Nordstrom's sale, and the Anniversary Nordstrom sale which hits July 20.

I'd be patient and stay observant. Something always come along :).

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/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/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/UsErNaMe-NoT_TaKeN · 3 pointsr/Watches

I'm 17 years old, so pretty similar in age. I just bought myself about 2 weeks ago a Seiko SNK809 and put a cheap leather strap on it which altogether cost me $70. Here is a picture of it. From the photo, the strap looks black but it really is dark brown. I put some wax on the leather to waterproof it right when I got it and holds up pretty good. The metal case scratches pretty easily but it's it still looks ok. The watch looses about 15 seconds a day.

If you are looking at something more accurate, get a Quartz, such as a Timex weekender for $50.

u/mbt77 · 3 pointsr/EDC

Get a Seiko 5 and a silicone strap for it. The watch is a tough beater and the rubber strap will dry off quickly and not deteriorate. If you want to spend a little more you can get a diver with a screw down crown that is even more water resistant.

u/Attuma · 3 pointsr/Watches

Also, great point about the size of the watch. Just take my word for it when I say that I don't think that any of them have really large wrists/forearms that would make a small watch look weird.

u/Kylehay101 · 3 pointsr/FrugalMaleFashionCDN

If you want a great "bang for your buck" watch, take a look at a Seiko 5. More specifically the SNK80 series. They are sub-$100. Automatic / Kinetic, so don't have to worry about batteries.

Plenty of colours as well, black, green, blue and beige. I would recommend swapping the fabric band for a NATO strap. Pick up a few different ones, dressy and casual.

I bought a black one a few months ago, and I wear it the most. Over some of more expensive ones including Citizen Eco-Drive, Michael Kors, Orient, and Hamilton.

u/swatch_crotch · 3 pointsr/Watches

The Seiko 5 (SNK809) is pretty much the 'go to' lower budget field (military) style watch around here. It's well within your budget, is automatic, is very well made, and has a cool display back. Additionally it's on the smaller size. With the money you'll save you can get a decent strap for him with it, or even a combination of straps.

They go cheaper than this too. I got one a few years ago for about 40 I think

Seiko Men's SNK809 Seiko 5 Automatic Stainless Steel Watch with Black Canvas Strap

u/Paumanok · 3 pointsr/EDC

I daily a seiko 5 SNK809, this one. It's a mechanical automatic watch. The hands and dots for each number glow. it's a little thick and the band it comes with sucks but I replaced it with a thin leather NATO strap. I recommend it highly. It gives a very accurate time, needs no batteries, and looks great. It costs as much as a normal timex right now and the second hand is really smooth.

The actual point of this is that it's a little bit thicker than a weekender but with that thickness you get a mechanical timepiece with a clear back to show off the movement. You've probably seen the watch on here before. it seems that everyone in /r/Watches has one.

u/Granite_State · 3 pointsr/Watches

Have you considered putting a quality tan strap on the Seiko SNK809?

u/ericfg · 3 pointsr/Watches

{This]( is a good choice. Very respectable brand.

u/SkullGuy · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I have got this seiko 5 watch with some different nato bands. Very basic but I like it.

u/DocmanCC · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife


Simple, analog, self winding, and a mechanical movement with proven durability. If it's a daily wearer you'll probably never find it dead. I get about wind 16 hours out of it if I skip a day. It is a bit on the small side (38mm) compared to other contemporary watches, but should be pretty close to your old Timex. Seems like watches are getting bigger by the year these days. Be sure to check out the customer pics on Amazon.

The citizen The_Thought_Police posted elsewhere is a solid choice as well.

Weekender is about the only decent thing in that price range. I would splurge a little more though and get the Seiko 809 Great entry level mechanical watch.

u/jjsevier · 3 pointsr/Watches

Congratulations! That's awesome. My wife (was fiance at the time) bought me my first automatic as an engagement gift. It was not, however, equivalent to the cost of the engagement ring. Seiko 5 SNK809. She also bought me a PS4 and that still didn't get close to 10% of the ring. I'd never complain, best money I've ever spent.

u/Nayyyyy · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

In casual wear you don't really need to match leathers as much. Though some people prefer too.

Timex are generally good quality for the price point.

A few other options based on your words:

u/SvcdAR · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I have this watch with this nato strap and love the combination. You can get both for under your $100 dollar budget and have an awesome automatic watch with a really nice strap.

u/skyleth · 2 pointsr/Watches

Try the Seiko SNZG15 or the smaller Seiko SNK809 for an affordable automatic that fits the style you seem to like.

Citizen is one of the best consumer brands around and have been doing Eco-Drive for over 20 years, I personally would not worry about their solar mechanism failing and/or repairs any more than the automatic Seiko's or the movements in the Hamiltons you listed above. So if you like the Citizen, go for it.

u/He_Himself · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

For well under $100, you can get a Seiko SNK809, or a SNKE63, or nearly any other model under the Seiko 5 umbrella. There are tons of variants and it's easily modded if you want to personalize it.

u/Jorgeragula05 · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

The often recommended Timex Weekender and Seiko 5 are good options.

u/honicthesedgehog · 2 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Surprised to see that Timex isn't getting more love. They make really solid pieces for a pretty affordable price - you can find their Weekender and Expedition lines for under $30 (and great cream dial options), either of which could be worked into business casual. I have a Fairfield Chrono that is one of my favorites for business casual outfits.

Another fan favorite is the Seiko SNK8 line (with black and cream options) - these are automatics instead of battery-powered which is fun (especially with the clear case back to see the movement), but you have to reset the time if you don't wear them every day. Seiko has all sorts of decent options under $100 too.

Orient (a Seiko subsidiary) is well known for being a quality entry-level brand. If you prefer diver style watches, the Mako/Ray automatic divers are stellar, and the ridiculous amount of Bambino models are fantastic dress watches that can easily be dressed down.

If you're looking to take the one quality watch versus several cheaper ones, I can't say enough good things about the Hamilton Khaki Field. It's pricier (~$450) but it fits with almost anything (casual, business casual, even masquerades as a dress watch at times) and I pretty much wear it almost exclusively these days. Of course, if you're willing to spend $500+, there are a dizzying amount of options out there.

Two other notes: don't worry too much about the strap color. Most default straps are low-quality and you can easily replace it with anything you want (spring bar tools are like $5). Second, I think the real issue most folks have with fashion watches is that they're just straight up overpriced (aka it's a $10 watch sold for $100+) and you can usually find off-brand versions of most everything on Ali Express. That said, if you really like a certain watch, forget the haters and just buy it - it's going on your wrist, not theirs.

u/WillNotStop · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I see that you wrote that everyone here seems to like the weekender. It's one of the better budget watches sub $50. It looks like you're open to suggestions, but seeing as how you're looking for affordable watches, I'll keep my suggestions under $100.

Might I suggest getting an automatic watch instead. Seiko 5's are incredibly popular as a first "real" watch, the most popular I've seen is probably the SNK809.

There's also the Citizen Eco-Drives with a lot of popular models such as this one, but keep in mind it's still a quartz (it's a quartz watch that automatically powers itself using a built in solar panel).

There are other watch makers (or even vintage like the affordable Vostok Amphibias) I suggest these two lines of watches because they are automatic watches from reliable watchmakers that make your watch more than just something to keep track of time, we have cellphones and other devices for that. You can find the suggested watches cheaper elsewhere than Amazon usually.

u/dessmond · 2 pointsr/Watches

I looked it up on amazon and it costs just over 70 bucks!

u/dh405 · 2 pointsr/RepTime

> Seiko 5

Depending on bracelet choice, that's not much of a stretch..

u/swimatm · 2 pointsr/aviation

Is there a certain style you want? Here's some I recommend:

Timex Weekender or Weekender Chronograph

Seiko 5

Orient Flight

Swatch Sistem51 Irony (especially the Sistem Arrow)

Also, check out the $250 and under buying guide on r/watches

u/Myron-Gaines · 2 pointsr/bodybuilding

You bastards are always giving me reasons to spend my money. That's a damn nice watch and will make a good replacement for my Timex Weekender. She's been a good watch fellas, but it's time to put her down.

Also, I hate to do this to you, but if you had Amazon Prime, you could've gotten it cheaper and faster.

u/_regtaf · 2 pointsr/EDC

Seiko 5 (model SNK809). It's a nice watch, I got mine just 2 days ago in the mail.

u/VA_Network_Nerd · 2 pointsr/USMCboot

Fucking boot.


There are three directions you can go with this.

  1. Keep it cheap, and bank on the reality that you're probably going to break it.
  • Timex IronMan, low-end G-Shock, anything rugged in the $50 & under range.
  1. Go all in with a digital wrist-computer.
  • No, not a real smart watch. Those are too high maintenance.
  • Maybe a Casio Pathfinder or something.
  • Something in the $200 range.
  • These do offer a whole array of functionality that can be useful in the field.
  • But these tend to be huge on the wrist and can snag on all kinds of shit.
  1. Go classy, non-digital.
u/SAIUN666 · 2 pointsr/AskMen

Daily wear for me until recently was a Seiko 5 Automatic SNK809 on a bond-pattern NATO strap. ^Not ^my ^photo, ^but ^looks ^the ^same. It's a mechanical watch that uses old-timey clockwork, and even has a display back so you can show people the gears and cogs inside. Cheapest way to get into mechanical watches without being flimsy Chinese stuff, around $75 plus however much you want to spend on a different strap.

I also have a retro Casio calculator watch as per Marty McFly which I'd pair with casual outfits if I felt like something different.

I've since joined the smartwatch crowd and daily wear a Moto 360 Sport with a custom watch face that I designed using an app.

u/CynicalPi · 2 pointsr/Watches

Hey guys, looking to spend <$120 on my first watch, I'd like to wear it daily as well as sports and nights out. I've looked at this Timex Chronograph as well as this Seiko and this cheaper Seiko. I value durability/reliability and comfort over style/functions. Was wondering if you guys could offer some advice.

Edit: Also I have a 7.1 inch wrist, I'd like the watch to not be as bulky as a g-shock for example.

u/VainLawliet · 2 pointsr/Watches

I was looking for something like this Seiko or even the [blue version] ( back when they were around 65 dollars but they have shot up in price. Is there anything with a similar look and price range? Just looking to use it casually.

u/baldylox · 2 pointsr/Watches

You mentioned Citizen. There are some nice Eco-Drives that are affordable that I bet your son would like. They're durable and reliable, which is a must for a kid. You know it's going to take a beating.

I don't know anyone that has an Eco-Drive that has anything but glowing things to say about it.

Timex makes a 'My First Timex' watch that might be a good choice:

I'm looking around and finding a few more that fit the bill. For a 12-year-old, it's difficult because most modern watches are huge. I imagine that he wouldn't want a watch over 34mm or so - unless he's a really big 12-year-old.

Seiko makes a very affordable automatic that he may like:

At 37mm or so, it may look huge on him, but that's a lot of watch for less than $60 new.

u/BushiSoy · 2 pointsr/Watches

[How about this] ( It has 30m water resist for shallow beach water, day/date, and around your budget. Theres a lot of em to choose from if you dont like the color.

u/pocketsked · 2 pointsr/Watches

The Seiko SNK809 is a true deal. A real automatic watch for US$54.

The Casio MDV-106 is also a budget classic. A really nice diver watch for the money. It's a heavy beast, though.

A bit above your budget, but Sasqwatch are really nice for the money.

u/psilocybinbeard · 2 pointsr/Watches

If the watch "ships from and sold by" (not just fulfilled, but actual Amazon stock) then returns are usually free and very easy. Print label, box it up, drop off at UPS.

So if your willing to put in a tiny bit of extra work, you can basically try on the watch and return if you don't like it.

The current stock I am looking at is sold by Amazon
