    My Mom wants a Timex like this. Any nicer alternatives?

    My mom wants me to get her this Timex or something similar with all Arabic’s. She says 28 or 32 mm.

    Any suggestions would be welcome. Price range is preferably under $500 but not averse to going over.

    Or should I just get her that Timex for $129?

    Thanks!Name:  image.jpg

    Is she a watch-person/Would she appreciate 'something nicer'? If not, just buy her the Timex.

    I would buy her the Timex. I have bought my wife a few watches and she will only wear a Timex with indiglo. If it makes her happy, who am I to argue?


    I did pickup a beat up hand wind Timex from the 70s(?). It probably isn't worth much but I do like the styling (BTW - anyone who knows anything about it please drop me an IM!).

    Skagen makes some thin, nice designs within your budget.

    If not for size restriction, I would say one of these - both 35mm. In my opinion, they certainly qualify as "nicer", at about twice the cost of Timex.

    Get her the Timex and show great interest in her owning/wearing.

    How about Citizen Corso EW1540-54A?

    It's not all Arabic (as it has a date), and it's 26mm instead of 28mm (https://us.citizenwatch.com/us/en/la...W1540-54A.html), but Eco-Drive means no (or much less frequent) PITA battery changes.

    Out of stock at many web sites, but available at some: https://www.amazon.com/Citizen-EW154...ct_top?ie=UTF8
