These are your expensive watches? The Casio at the cleaners? You have some really ugly watches. Good luck with the rest of your day.

A man with two watches never knows what time it is.

I like my Casio G-shock MTG 900's. Hope to buy another one soon. The only reason I get new one is after 5-6 years they look pretty sad and wornmut still keep excellent time and are up dated by the atomic clock weekly, change for DST and have batteries that are solar charged. Best watch ever made and relatively cheap!

And that's exactly why I buy the Citizen Eco-Drive watches now.

Yep same here, if I added up the cost of my automatic Seiko's, Bulova's, Movados, etc. I could get myself a very "nice" watch. Then again I like all my relatively modestly priced watches. Those are nice pieces by the way!

Bingo! I've got the citizen nighthawk wr 200. Bought it in 2004 roughly. Titanium band, tough as nails, never needs anything ever! 15 years and looks like brand new! I chuckle quite a bit at ppl who feel like they need to show off a Rolex to impress ppl with the $$$ they have (had?), when I still get compliments on my $175 citizen!
