I have worn fossil watches for a long time and I love them. They dont cost much and keep prefect time. I was in the Marine Corps with a guy who liked expensive watches and we were out one day and he found some $1500 watch he had to have. From the first day it would lose about 15 to 20 minutes in a 24 hour period. For that kind of money it better keep perfect time and make breakfast too!

I bought a refurbed (from an estate) Rolex Sea-Dweller for $750 back in '85 and it's been on my wrist ever since. Sure a $10 Timex quartz is probably more accurate, but I've never regretted the investment.

I broke one too and took it to a fossil dealer and they replaced it for free. I had a board with a nail sticking out of it fall and hit my watch breaking the face and the little knob used to set the time also broke off. Thank goodness I was wearing it because the nail would have gone into my wrist if I had left it at home like I usually did. I dont wear watches to work so I wouldnt break them but forgot that day. All fixed for free.

My college roomate inheireted his Dad's Rolex when he died. Kept horrible time. It was a self winder. But he's still wearing it 23 years later.

My employee wears a $1000 TAG watch he inheireted from his father in law, to work in! He's an electrician and wearing a metal watch isn't a great idea anyway, but he scratches the hell out of it. I offered to buy him a casio so he wouldn't destroy it. Makes me sick.

I like G-shocks and those scuba watches look nice. But unfortunately Im allergic to black rubber, so I end up buying some cheap POS to work in.

Rolex blueface TT Submariner. Bought it when I was making more $$$ than I almost knew what to do with. It's now worth more used than I paid originally for it new, you can't beat that.

Watches

My GF bought this Skagen for me after I picked it out:



I inherited this Wenger from my uncle when he passed at 52 last year:



I wear the Skagen with black shoes and the Wenger with brown shoes.

What's more expensive to buy, a watch that has little or no resale value, or one that has a huge secondary (used/pre-owned) market and either holds its value or actually goes up in value? I've already been offered over a $1000 more for my watch than I paid for it ten years ago.

I have several Citizen watches. All bought from Kay Jewelers (its how I started my credit okay?) Great watches. The Eco-Drives are really nice. Never needs a battery replacement. I’ve broken the bands several times over the years and they will fix with out a problem.

I three of them. A blue beater I wear during work. A nice dress watch that has hardly been worn and titanium one that’s so lite you’d forget you were wearing it. Wife has two of them as well. An every day watch and a dress watch was well.

[quote=Grewe02]I like the looks of this one, but its used.... and that's kinda expensive for a used watch.

Watch out for fakes. There are some that would make a jeweler look twice. Know the seller's reputation, and get a written authenticity statement with a clause that allows return for full price plus shipping if found it is a fake. Have a reputable jeweler check it out.
You may want to check out Wegner Swiss Aymy Watches. They last, and take a beating.
