Looking an affordable (<$100) leather band watch watch with a simple face. For a man, not looking to say “I’m rich” but “functional and tasteful.” Worn with grey suits and biz-casual. Thanks for recs!

Shinola. Great selection of leather bands too.

Negative vote for Shinola. They’re crazily overpriced and are new to the automatic game

Nixon watches. Lots of styles, great quality.

Bump up to $400/500 and get a Hamilton. If you’re sticking to that budget, try and find a Seiko automatic but idk if they have anything in that range that is a more casual look

A Hacker-Craft boat, multi-generational family vacations, horses, an art collection, starting up a non-profit foundation for starters, P1. Lots of ways to spend those $$$ but watches are OK too I guess. Honestly if it gives you pleasure and you’ve already covered the bases like you have, spend it on whatever the hell you want.

Already on it :) unfortunately their selection and quality has deteriorated since I bought my first fossil a long time ago. Struggling to find a model that woos me.

Check out Daniel Wellington. Closer to $200, but decent leather band, simple face. Worn it for about two years and have had no issues.

I think a Skagen watch would fit the bill. You should eventually look into buying a quality watch. A quality watch should last longer than a decade, and can be a great sentimental piece.

Check out TjMaxx & Nordstrom rack. I have gone to those stores for all my designer name watches. Great deals.

Timex and Skagen make lots of attractive quartz watches around this price point. Nothing wrong with a Timex weekender, $60 well spent. If you want an automatic for a low price point that you can wear with suits, the Orient Bambino (Seiko brand) is hard to beat and are ~$150.

Seiko is the answer. Fully automatic so none of this watch battery bs in the cheaper watches. However they have the pedigree of also making $20k watches. The Seiko 5 for example is also waterproof. By far the best bang for your buck watch that will literally last you a lifetime.

Check out the Timex Todd Snyder’s. They’re inexpensive and look great. Based on what you’re asking I think you’re looking for form over function (at least as far as some of the horologists here are concerned).

Anyone try mvmt? The commercials always looked like Chinese rebranded watches, but some actually look pretty decent https://www.mvmtwatches.com/collections/the-blacktop-collection/products/checker-white-caramel?flow_enabled=false&utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=googlepla&gclid=Cj0KCQiAyp7yBRCwARIsABfQsnQjUyCNokqXaRFs5oRL0U4eLx6NlIgst86FJnlH3Se8oH_2iT1MFfsaAoTZEALw_wcB

Mvmt is a $3 watch that they try to sell for an insane margin. It’s really low quality. The same can be said for Daniel Wellington.

I love my Cluse watch - would recommend checking them out. Nice-looking and has held up really well, but not too pricey
