    Please recommend watches similar to these!

    I'm planning on buying a cheap watch (max. around 50$). I don't need anything fancy, I just need it for knowing the time, although I have some criteria. I want it to be analogue, round faced with lather band, also with numbers (preferably Arabic), a plus would be if it showed the date too, and to be silent. For the latter criteria I'm starting to exclude the Timex Easy Reader.
    Here are some watches that I'm interested in but would like some feedback on and also recommendations beside these but similar. Thank you!
    Watches in order: Casio MTP-1303L-7B, Casio MTP1183E-7B, Timex T2H281

    Welcome to WUS! Stick with those two name brands at that price and be sure to check the Timex and Casio websites for additional models. Pick the watch you like because they are all three hand date watches and will run for decades with care.

    It's hard to go wrong with a Timex Weekender. Divine intervention is the only thing that stops me from getting one every single time I go to Target.

    I agree.

    The only problem with Timex watches is that they are loud. How loud are Casio watches?

    Loud? What are you, part dog? ;) I honestly haven't heard that complaint before. I honestly haven't heard any quartz watch before, and even mechanicals I have to strain to hear. Was this ALL Timex or just one? I'm wondering if you ran across a defective one.

    I've read the reviews on amazon.com and a lot of people have complained about this.

    Many Timexes are known for their loud ticking- I had an Expedition that I could hear while driving- in a diesel car. I'd take the Casio 1183 out of the three there.

    Oh, Weekenders are loud alright. But, I like that.

    The first time I wore one I got in my car, put the key in and thought something was wrong. All I could hear was a loud ticking. After trying to locate where on the dashboard it was coming from I suddenly realised that it was the watch!
