    I havent worn a watch in about five years, and I think I want to buy one.

    Any suggestions on a decent watch that I can afford?

    Micheal Kors makes some slick watches for around 200.

    Website Chronoshark has awesome deals everyday. Check it for a couple of weeks and you'll find a good one.

    why do you want to wear a watch? that should govern which style and brand you choose.

    Seiko and Citizen are good inexpensive yet reliable watches.

    I'm a watch snob. I collect them. Depends on how much you want to spend. If you're going to buy one get a decent watch. They last a lifetime.

    Fuck getting a mediocre watch.

    I saw some really beautiful Rolex watches for sale just off Times Square last time I was there. Way cheap too!

    Yeah, the china made models. Very nice.

    I got my first nice watch from an ex girlfriend. He parents own a jewelry store. I have been hooked ever since.

    If you want a durable, good looking watch you can find nice Victorianox (swiss army) models that are dressy for a couple hundred. If you want to spend a little more you can find a good used Tag Heuer for around 1000.
