    That's going to be tough to fit into his price range

    Have you owned one? How did it hold up? Like I said in post #10, I have no experience owning one of these. I have friends who like theirs, but the reviews online are all over the map from "I have abused mine for years, and it is great," to "I dropped it and the second hand fell off two days after I started wearing it." I suspect it is just a few defective watches, but maybe quality control is not what it used to be? I don't see anybody complaining online about the second hand falling off of their Tag Heuer (my first and second recommendations, dismissed as too dressy), but it is a completely different price point.

    I actually like the way many of the Luminox watches look, and I have been tempted to get one for casual wear, but I a really rough on watches, and I would hate to spend even a few hundred dollars on something that there is a good chance I might break because it is not built to hold up to the things I do.

    If you prefer a heavy (no pun intended) feel and rugged style I recommend the TAG Heuer line, they plenty to choose from. I've had the same one for 15 years, I've sent it in 2 times for maintenance and keeps perfect time.

    Thoughts on the seiko 5 line.. I'm thinking about maybe getting a 5 sport.. a watch $200 and below to wear daily that will handle take a beating and I won't cry to much if if breaks eventually.

    Whereís Flipper? Nobody knows watches more than that guy. He just bought some Bathysphere something or the other with ten names I canít pronounce made out of meteors. Something like that. Good for 6,000 meters. He has a VERY deep pool.

    Iíve owned a lot of watches only have a few now . G-shock are very good everyday watches that hold up to anything and are extremely accurate and the newer models have a lot to choose from as far as looks I definitely recommend looking at them .

    That's a nice looking watch for less than 200 bucks.

    My favorite watch (the Swiss Army one mentioned above) was less than $200 . . .

    I don't think it goes with jorts, though, sorry.

    I like the looks of that one as well. Im considering it as well actually. Im into stainless bands. I really prefer the all blacked out look. Band, dial etc.

    Now to pick your brain.. how much is there a difference between a Swiss movement vs Japanese movement like what's used in seiko or citizen brand watches.
