Luminox Navy Seals dive watch. It is light and indestructible and you can see the number markings and hour/minute hands in the dark AT ALL TIMES due to the tritium. $200-250 you can't go wrong and you will not regret the purchase. I've had mine 10 years and it is still going strong, except for the 3 or 4 bands and batteries that I have replaced. They also come in stainless if you are wanting a heavier watch but they are a little higher.

How do you define "a fortune"?

Heck, even Timex has some nice watches that nobody will know they are a Timex. Aren't they a vendor on Promotive? Yes they are.

I have owned some seriously expensive watches watches in the past, and I went for years without wearing one. Man jewlery, meh. I now wear a Timex that looks like a watch that costs 5x's what I paid and it keeps time just as well.

Dress watches? If it really matters to you, then shop around at the high end retailers and look for sales. There are so many choices out there right now and look at Jewel #'s. Just my $.01.

Anything from Luminox. The most important thing to me is I want to be able to tell the time in any light condition. It doesn't matter if it is pitch black for hours, you will always be able to read a Luminox.

May not high end but high on use, don't know if they are even available any more but day to day Casio AW-S60. Solar powered, I've had mine for three years and it has never lost a second, needed a battery or winding. Alarm, dual time, back light and several other functions I don't use. Also not bad to look at. I'm a bit old school so still wear a watch daily and this one is the one I wear to work and on the weekends. It has seen less than kind care but functions perfectly.

Timex. It still takes a licking and keeps on ticking!
