I purchased an Orient Titanium to kick around with. It was $150, but right out of the box- broken. Also the quality isn't really that good. Really seemed like a cheap watch. It only worked with moving the watch to wind it. If you turn the crown, it wouldn't wind.
Anyway, I think I need a G-shock for kicking around and not having to care what is on my wrist. I'm 35 years old and had Gshocks when I was young, and after looking at their site they have some real nice looking pieces. I love their analog. I bet those things last forever...I believe it, cause the ones I had from years ago when I was younger still work!
