    Buying a watch.

    I'm really considering buying a new watch, but I just dont know if I would wear it enough. It would be in the $400 range and wouldn't even be worn at work. Do many people even wear watches that often anymore? I'm I being foolish for getting this stuck in my mind??

    Re: Buying a watch.

    I think a watch is the one accessory that a man can and should have. Wearing a watch shows a sense of style and punctuality. Whether you want to buy a $400 watch is up to you, but my $40 Shimano works pretty well.

    If you want to show off the money at least do it with style.

    Nice but do yourself a favor and at least look at the Skagen's before you buy.

    Re: Buying a watch.

    I wear a watch everyday, I don't like using my cellphone to tell time. I work with my hands a lot for my job and my watches tend to get beat up quickly, a watch allows me to check the time without putting down my wrench and stuffing my greasy hand into my pocket or all over my phone.

    I think watches are awesome and they are one of the few legit ways for a man to show some bling.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    A friend of mine from high school is starting a watch company, Red Sea Watches. If you are a "watch person," check them out.

    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    I love my Skagen. Stylish but inexpensive.

    Re: Buying a watch.

    I have a Citizen that I like a lot, although I don't have much to compare it to, my only other watch before this was a Fossil. It's the Eco-Drive so it doesn't have a battery, which I like.

    Funny that I was going to say Fossil as well, until I saw the $400 price range. Fossil is great if you're looking in the $100 range, but for that kind of money you can do a lot better than Fossil. If I were looking to drop serious coin on a watch I'd probably do Citizen EcoDrive as well.
