    The picture link is broken.
    If you want a beater, something you can wear daily and not worry too much about what happens to it, it would be okay. They're a pretty reputable brand, so you'll be getting a decent quality watch, but I think I would really like the design or fit in order to spend any kind of money on it. I already have a daily beater, a Timex, which I wear without worrying too much about it, which I cannot with some of my automatics.

    A Victorinox Garrison is a decent watch with a quartz movement and a mineral glass crystal, and would be a fantastic deal for $40 new on a metal bracelet. For reference, I paid $38 for a Garrison on a leather strap on one of the deal-of-the-day websites, and thought that was an exceptional deal. Preowned, $40 is still probably a fair price if it's in excellent like new condition.

    Victorinox is a good brand. I believe they used to make their watches in the unused space of a Breitling factory but became popular that they opened a large new factory in Switzerland. They are more "Swiss" than a lot of Swiss brands, I'm sure.

    That being said, I'm surprised the Swiss can make any kind of watch and export it for $40.

    It should provide plenty of value for $40. If you like the style, it's hard to go wrong.
