    Groomsmen watch gift idea help

    Hey all,
    Thinking of getting my groomsmen watches as a thank you gift for being in my wedding. I am trying to keep the cost under $200 per watch and would like some brand advice. Trying to avoid the Macy's everyday brands and find a smaller company that has some cool sporty stainless styles.
    Already considering Alpha but would love to hear some other suggestions. Also wouldnt mind a company that allows some sort of engraving, again not going for a pocket watch or a things remembered one.

    I might be trying to reach for the stars here, but watches are my thing I am just more unfamiliar with watches or watch companies that cater in this price range.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    My first thought given your location would be this but it's probably over budget.

    Boston Watch Company

    My only other suggestion would be matching Casio G-Shocks or possibly, matching Boston Red Socks watches.

    Seiko skx007
    On amazon with rubber strap
    Amazon.com: Seiko Men's SKX007K Diver's Automatic Watch: Seiko: Watches

    Amazon with bracelet
    http://www.amazon.com/Seiko-SKX007K2...s=seiko+skx007

    SKX009 same thing but instead of black dial and bezel (exterior turning ring to count time) it has a blue dial and a pepsi bezel. A pepsi bezel is a blue bezel with 1-15 in red instead of blue.
    Rubber strap

    Bracelet
    http://www.amazon.com/Seiko-SKX009K2...s=seiko+skx009

    I have the 007 on the bracelet, and I think it is a fantastic watch. It can be dressed up on the bracelet or a leather strap, or down on a nato strap or a rubber strap. I find that the Marathon black rubber is great for this watch, being a thick strap, it feels very nice. You said a smaller brand, and I know that Seiko is large, but it is well regarded in terms of quality and brand name. I would definitely recommend it over the Alpha's.

    Seiko skx007/009 is a solid pick. Another nice pick would be bernhardt field diver at $169 or bernhardt binnacle anchor II or binnacle diver at $259 each which I know is a little more then what you are thinking about spending but you do get really nice watch for the money with those 2.

    Seiko is the best choice. An orange dial monster would be perfect. You could also go with a Citizen Eco drive. Can't beat either for the money.

    For something unique consider a set of vostok amphibia - maybe matching blue scuba dudes.

    Orient also has a large collection of watches within your budget. LongIslandWatch has a huge selection in the $120-$180 range.
