    Looking for a good looking watch (quartz) under 120$.

    Dear members of the forum,

    Years ago my dad brought my from Thailand an IWC knockoff which I was very fond of.

    It is battery operated so I assume it is a quartz movement, I don't remember which, but a watchmaker who replaced a battery was surprized to find it in a knockoff. It has been working flawlessly for years.

    Although I am fascinated with the inner workings of mechanical movements, and would love to collect "true" watches, I don't have the money for that at this point in my life.

    So anyway, this watch taught me two things about myself:

    1) For me wearing a watch (as opposed to collecting) is like wearing jewelry - I care more about the looks than what's inside nor I care for the brand.

    2) I need it to be reliable and not break down after one year, and to be water resistant for handwashing. 🙂

    Lately I have been wanting to buy another watch for myself.

    Assuming my budget for now is at most 120$, and given these two requirements, which watches / brands would you recommend me to buy?

    I like the chronograph look, and metallic bands. I don't care much about the brand.

    P.S - I have read that the timex watches are rather noisy, would like to avoid something too noisy.

    Thanks!

    I apologize, I meant no offense. I just wanted to tell what sparked my interest in watches and my motivation for buying a legit watch (even if of obscure brand).
    I, of course, do not support illegal activity, the contrary.
    If it is a problem, I can repost without the story about the fake watch.

    Back in the day I used to have a few decent quartz watches. One brand I really liked was Tokyo Bay from the US- I’ve actually held onto a couple of their pieces as they were so interesting and still working
