    The "Should I Buy This" Thread

    Post for feedback about a purchase you are contemplating.


    I am going to be purchasing my first watch. I want to keep it simple and I'm opting for silver/black so I can wear it passably with almost anything. What do you think of this one (I prefer the black):

    Going to wait for a sale or buy it online though.

    So unless the price on this drops a bunch on boxing day, I don't think I can afford this.

    Anyone know where you can get similarly nice watches without the ridiculous brand mark up if it exists?

    Preferably something under 150$

    Out of those, I prefer the silver. But don't spend all that on a Quartz fashion watch.

    Daniel Wellington watches are nice & affordable

    Good idea for a thread. Two things I am contemplating.


    Banana Republic blackwatch blazer in 100% wool on sale at 122:



    Tailored fit M&S navy velvet blazer:


    Not sure I would wear either enough to justify the purchase though.

    Thanks for the recommendations Ivan and Stauf.
    Unfortunately the Daniel Wellington watches don't have the silver band which I want.
    I really like the Seiko snk795k102 for value, good recommendation!
