    This will be my first "real" watch, I am a senior in high school so I don't really plan on buying another one for at least another 2 years.Probably won't be wearing everyday, only when I dress up a bit. Wrist has just been feeling naked lately when I'm wearing a suit. Something reliable,nice (vague, I know) but I'm a watch noob. Post some suggestions

    Skagen makes a very stylish watch for a great price. The quality isn't the greatest, but what can you expect for under $100. I'd say it's your bestbet for a starter watch.

    Trust me, I get more compliments on my Skagen than my Tag Heuer.

    g-shocks are hypebeast material now get a pop watch or a basic movado watch might cost you a little over 100 maybe 150

    Dude said he wanted it for dress and ppl start coming in here saying g shock and giving opions abt g shock, [​IMG]. I say Fossil watches, they're cheap andhave a dressy look to most of their watches.

    the budget is definitely flexible, just didn't want reccomendations of stuff $150+

    the j.crew timex isn't really my style and it's $150 and the two seiko's posted are a bit plain but not too bad

    come to think of it i wouldn't really mind a less dressier watch, just nothing g-shock

    how is swatch??

    Fossil is definitely a good starter watch, good prices too.
