I'm looking for a nice watch that costs sub $100. so far, the best deal I've found is this:

Anyone know if that Seiko watch is any good? My wrists are slim, so I'd prefer light, unbulky watches.

ESQ are not too bad at all. Quartz face, and pretty durable. I think they are a sub company of Movido (sp?)

ebay is for fakes. i'd be extremely careful if I used ebay for anything of value or for authenticity.

the sellers on amazon dont look that great, the seller Famous Brand Watches sell a ton of watches, but their feedback is 89%. that isnt the greatest, they are the biggest watch seller on amazon, as far as I can tell. Would you rather take your chances with them, or ebay?

The ones from amazon.com, sold directly from amazon should be fine, but like i said, some of their watch retailers might not be on the up and up. buyer beware(always).

I typically only buy Fossil watches. They've got a wide variety of styles and all come with an 11-year warrantee.

If you're looking for a "dress watch", check out the Black Zane...it's pretty sexy.

I bought a watch and never use it. Always have your cell phone so no need for a watch. Save the dough!

Ooo, I really like this one, but I unfortunately went with the Seiko already in my OP. Can you return watches to Amazon if your not satisfied with it? I may do that if I find that I don't like the Seiko watch. Thanks for the help guys.

I got this one with a blue face. The smaller dials show a 24 hour clock, the day of the week and the date. If I'm not mistaken, Relic is a sub-company of Fossil so it's basically the same thing/quality. I've had both and I can't tell the difference. I would recommend buying a watch in store such as Penney's or elsewhere because if anything goes wrong with it, they will fix/repair/adjust for free. Relic guarantees their watches for 12 years I read on a sign in Penney's.

I tend to stick to Kenneth Cole or Seiko. This is the watch I'm currently sporting and have absolutely no problems with it.

Kenneth Cole has a few nice, simple watches for under $100. Of them, I think this one looks tops. They also have a similar watch with a black face called "It's About Time."
