Default Watches

I am looking for a super durable yet reasonably priced watch. I seem to go through them as if I get paid for it. Any testimonials? JD, I know you love your gear. Gotta have a good watch.

What is your budget?

"Reasonably priced" varies from person to person.

I always had good luck with Seiko. Most that I owned lasted longer than I wanted and got passed along.

Take a look and see if any of these (kinetic series) interests you.

I've had a number of Seiko's over the years and they seem to be pretty much bulletproof. I bought a half a dozen Invicta watches some time back (when I had money) and I think they give great value for the money.

Wearing a 40 yr old Seiko self winding at the moment. No electric to it. 6 months ago, bought one like it for about $60 for my son. Onesaleaday.com has them from time to time.

I haven't worn a watch in many years brother, but what are you looking for it to do besides tell time? Waterproof/Water Resisant? Shooting Solution?

Help me help you.

I don't like watches that need batteries. Mechanicals are the way to go.

Seiko has some bomb proof automatic professional diver's watches that fall under your price point, and I don't know of a better watch for the cost.
