So I know how most people feel about fashion/designer watches. I too own a few (Diesel, Kenneth Cole, Guess, Lacoste) but they have all been gifts except for a Fossil which is about 13 years old and my personal favorite, has pretty much been thru anything one can think of but just keeps on ticking . The other fashion ones I have are also not bad and just usually need a battery change every couple of years and they are good to go. So I cannot say I have had bad experiences, like some of the other folks here, with any of them except for a Swatch which just went dead in about 3 years.
I have suddenly become interested in a blue leather strap and a blue face dial watch. Its mostly to wear it as a matching accessory. I already own some nice watches in Citizen, Seiko, Tissot, Grovana, Swiss Army, ESQ, G-Shock, and a lovely Orient Mako Diver. Since I know I don't want to spend too much on this new purchase since its probably going to be a phase I wanted your opinion on some nice ones out there for around $200 or less.
I have found the following ones that I have been eyeing but just need to be sure before making the purchase. I'd like some ideas on watches out there that perhaps I may not have come across.
