    Men's wrist watch suggestions

    So I'm in the market for a new watch. I've had a all black Berenger for the last 5 yrs that I wear everyday. Lately its been losing time and its on its way out. So I'm looking for recommendation for a new watch. I don't want to spend over $150 as I have a lot of expenses right now. If I had the money I would get this:
    http://www.movado.com/selector/resul...r=10&thisImg=1

    but they retail for around $900 in stores, about $550 online, last I checked.
    Any suggestions?

    I don't like movados. My friend is selling his if you want me to get a price and model number.

    If its <150 then its a cheap watch and get whatever you think looks cool. I'm picking up a Tag Heuer Link Auto in a month or so. Retails for $2100, best price I can find is $1400 so far.

    I like the Seiko Kinetics, but they're a little more than 150.

    The Seiko Kinetic does look nice.

    Is their a reason Unreal you don't like Movado's?

    The $150 limit is if I get one now, if I wait awhile I can probably get something more expensive.

    I am not a Movado fan either- don't like their esthetic. I am not sure of what to suggest, though, as most things I like are in the $200-$1000 range.

    For the cheaper end, Fossil?

    I like Movados.

    I have a silver Berenger that I wear all the time..had it probably 4 years now.

    Best 50 bucks I ever spent. It's easily been the best watch I've ever owned. It keeps perfect time..no complaints at all.

    i like the Armani's. I got mine for i think 200$ im not sure. but that was a waste because i hate wearing watches. i just use my cell phone for time.

    I also like leather bands, metal is cold, and sometimes hair can get snagged in the links. The majority of emporio armani is leather or nylon bands.

    rado is wicked too. But seiko i think is the best buy for ur price range.

    I'm a big fan of Emporio watches also. Mine is similar to the linked one, the difference is that the face is black. http://www.worldofwatches.com/detail...cial=&watchsp=

    I do like my Berenger a lot and for 4 years of everyday wearing it was great, now it will stop almost exactly 1 hour after I take it off. I don't know if its body heat, or movement (probably heat).
    Just looking to go with something different now.

    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial

    I agree... I think it's worth it to spend a lot on a watch, since you'll most likely have it for a long time.

    Unreal, I have the Link quartz that I got a few years ago for $1200. I'm not a fan of automatic watches... especially Tag's, since they're SO thick.

    I like Mavados, Gucci, and Armanis for upper class watches. I dont like Tags, Rolies, or watches like that, with a jumbled up face I like plain classy watches....simplistic.

    I personally wear a ESQ watch. I paid 450 for it and love it!

    Hatred and I just got brand new Tourneau watches because we kicked so much ass at the dealership. Its ****ing gorgeous. They give out watches if your dealership makes Precision Team (Acura-approved kickass dealerships). Here's the one they gave out last year: http://www.tourneau.com/Tourneau/Mai...EL0103668.aspx

    So basically what I'm saying is that it is way too nice of a watch for me. I have an extremely difficult time wearing brown...its a color I just don't understand. The watch has a fantastic brown leather band but unfortunately it leaves me SOL.
    I tried taking a picture of it but I'm not so dedicated to a macro excursion right now. So trust me, its freaking nice.
