    Best Watch at Around $150 - $200

    I'm planning to buy a a high quality, affordable watch that would cost at around 150 - 200 dollars. I already have a Lacoste steel watch, a G-shock, and a Casio vintage watch. What can you guys suggest that would be great for both casual and formal attire? I'm currently thinking of one which has a leather or rubber strap.

    I've been looking at these watches recently and I just want to know which I should get? Or do you guys have any other suggestions? Thanks in advance. :D

    Not really "dressy" but it'll do the job.

    Can be had just over $200

    I would highly recommend Citizen watches. I have an Eco drive (solar) that never needs a battery and looks and runs great.

    Don't forget that you can always get a different strap for any watch, too.

    Seiko SKX007 for the money, if new.

    If used, you can get yourself a dressy vintage Omega at the top end of your budget.

    For under $200, you can get an Orient Mako/Ray and a coupla straps. Yes, it's a diver, but it dresses up nicely on leather.

    There are a number of Seiko 5s in that price range but they mostly come with metal bands. You could get one towards the bottom of your price range and add a leather band for about $20.

    While you are flipping around at Amazon, I would definitely look at Citizen Eco-Drive. Great value, convenient machine, and well constructed and attractive for the price. If you want an automatic, then the Seiko 5 suggestion is hard to beat. On the Citizen, here's just one possibility among hundreds:
    Amazon.com: Citizen Men's AW1361-10H Sport Analog Display Japanese Quartz Brown Watch: Watches

    Edit: As you may know, Amazon is an AD for some, but not all, Seiko and Citizen watches. The one noted above would come with the Citizen five year warranty, not a bad bonus.

    Thanks for the recommendations, guys. I've decided to narrow my selection into the Seiko SKX007K and the Citizen Eco-Drives. Which do you think is a better value for my money?
