  2. I am a fan of Invicta and Casio divers. I also quite like a Fossil leather cuff watch I have been wearing a lot lately. My outdoors watch is a battered Timex digital that takes a licking and keeps on ticking. Accurate, budget friendly timepieces that look good. What's not to like?

  4. There's much to be said for cheap watches. I do own a Rolex 2-tone Sub that I love and wear a lot, but I also have an Invicta diver that looks and feels a lot like my Sub. I wear it traveling and never have to worry about damaging or losing it; I can definitely tell it's not a Rolex as the stem and bracket don't work as smoothly but for $85 (purchased in Mexico) who cares. As a bonus, it keeps as good of time as the Sub.
     
  5. I have a number of Invicta and other budget friendly watches. My most expensive watch is the knockoff Submariner auto I bought for $180 in Mexico in 2005. Since I had to replace the bracelet. I have a 40 mm, 43 mm and 47 mm Pro Diver and a Grand Diver all autos.

    There is the Hamilton Thin o Matic that belonged to my dad's dad. It was his every day watch from the time he got it as a service award from his employer to the day he died. I don't wear it much partly due to it's size. (~33 mm)

    A great dressy but too dressy is my Rotary. 42 mm automatic skeletonized dial. Fits well under a suit sleeve. Couple of Sturhling Original pieces too. The Rotary while previously owned was brand new and still in its original packaging. The ShopNBC price at the time was $200. I paid $70.

  6. I’m a Seiko man myself. I’ve got two Seiko automatics I adore wearing. Plus, I’ve a couple Timex’s. As a middle-aged family man, that’s good enough for me.
