Default Any watch recommendations?

I'm on the hunt for a nice watch for everyday wear. I have quite a few "dress" watches that I wear for going out w/ the wife etc...Not trying to spend a fortune, don't need any special features, just a nice everyday watch. Any suggestions or favorite brands??

My friend in Cali swears by the G-Shock watches. But I never wear a watch so I have no personal experience to share.

I wear Seiko with a dark face. Where I work, the lights are always dim and the dark face and light hands are easier to read.

I'll go along with Seiko. Sportmans Guide has them at a pretty good price. Sportsman's Guide - Discount Hunting Gear, Discount Hunting Boots, Discount Shoes, Discount Ammunition, Discount Ammo, Discount Boots, Military Surplus, Outdoor Gear at The Sportsman's Guide

I haven't worn a watch since January 2007, when I fractured my left wrist. I'm usually surrounded by clocks anyway, and there's always the cell phone.

Depends on what a fortune is, to you? Try Reactor.

If you like dive watches, look at a Marathon. Try here: Home of WestCoasTime
Marathon is the issued watch for Canadian C. G. rescue divers and NASA divers. They are well built, tough, and robust. You can get either a quartz ($400) or automatic (&700) and with lume or tritium tubes. They usually come with a rubber strap and a s.s. braclet is avail. These are not plastic cased or cheap metal watches, they are solid stainless! I'm sure some will argue the point, but I think they are probably the best dive watch available anywhere for the price.

I've worn a G-Shock for four years now. Paid $300 then and its worth every penny. I've done things to my watch that would destroy others. I don't know how many times I've smashed it off stuff and the first thing through my head is "Crap! My watch is effed!" then look at my wrist and its not even scratched. Its also solar powered - haven't had to replace the battery and it will probably outlast me.

I don't wear a watch any longer. A couple of close calls in the electrical field will do that to you.

When I wear a watch, and it is a RARE occassion, I wear Tag Heuer. While I am no James Bond, I do enjoy a good, quality timepiece that looks as good as it performs.
