    50.00 Watch challenge!!!

    Is it possible to find something that is not an embarrassment to wear for 50.00? Well, yes. I mean I did.
    While both these watches are clearly super low budget, i like them both. They are both part of the rotation of what I wear. They are not embarrassing....at least not to me. Both cost 50.00 or slightly less but not greater than 50.00. Including adding the leather Nato on the Casio which i picked up on ebay for 7.99 . The Bertucci is a cool resin watch that keeps excellent time and the stock Nato from Bertucci is top shelf. Luminous hands are pretty good. And it is aesthetically pleasing as is the Casio with it's simple black face.
    Alright, so here's the challenge: SHOW ME WHAT YOU'VE GOT THAT COST APPROX 50.00 POST PICS !!!Name:  IMG_0417.JPG

    Seeing the title the Casio Marlin was the first thing that came to mind. You can also get lucky and find a Seiko 5 SNK80X for $50 or just a couple of bucks more.

    Yes indeed, the casio logo was a tough sell for me. But honestly it doesn't bug me. I wear that watch a lot. It's the 'beater ' But I would argue that one would have a hard time finding a more reliable, simple aesthetic, black face diver for under 50.
