Hi there fellow WUSers. Before I get onto the topic, I just wanted to say something about my history with wristwatches: it's practically empty. Now that I'm almost 25, I've come to the point in my life where my attire actually matters (during interviews, casual meetings, chasing undergrad ladies and the sort). As I continue to change the way I dress, the fragrances I wear and the shoes I polish, I feel that getting a watch or two couldn't hurt.
Being a Canadian, there really is very limited choice compared to our down below counterparts and most of our prices are relatively insane. I looked at a couple of big retailers like Sears for watches but none of them suited me too well for my budget of $300 for my first watch.
However, I did end up finding a Bulova 96A116 Marine Star at Costco for $280 which seems (is it?) like a reasonable price for a Canadian seller. Does WUS think it would be a good buy?
I somewhat wanted to get a simplistic watch (not a fan of divers at all) for everyday wear with a leather band but I couldn't find anything locally. There was also a Citizen Eco-Drive JZ1020-54E (it's a bit lighter than the image below) for $180. Which of the two would you guys recommend? Thanks!
