    But there are some watches that are not expensive, which I'd really like to have in my collection.

    For example, a Sinn 556A, Seiko 6139, and maybe (don't laugh) a Hamilton Ventura. Blame it on Elvis.

    Sinn tends to hold value pretty well. I think that's a safe $1k purchase.

    This is what happens when you mix watches and Halloween.

    I almost fell for that analogy and glad I held out for my EXP2. Debates on a beater G-Shock for work but just got over it and nobody really notices, that I know of... only a few people have said anything.

    I fucking hate gshock. However, I sucked it up for a work watch. I would rather destroy the gshock than anything else I own.

    If you can't find a G-shock that is at least "ok", you aren't looking hard enough. There are hundreds of options.

    I like G-Shocks, but prefer a good running auto with killer lume.

    Speaking of the sub-$1k category, I needed to time my commute this morning. The Ningaloo Reef got the nod.

    If I had paid retail for this watch, I would have cried. But for $500 used several years ago, it was a great buy.

    Not only that, I just think they are big and gawdy. Just not my thing. To each their own.

    Best everyday watch ever for me. It’s resistant

    I have a blue with SS wrist band.
