    I'm a fan of Diesel watches. Some weird designs but some of them are just badass.

    I like Bulovas. For the money you'd spend on an Oakley watch, you could buy a real watch, something nice. Citizen makes some nice watches, but I'm not a big fan of the Eco drive. I've heard good and bad about it.

    I got a Swiss Army watch for Christmas several years ago. After three years of wearing it every day, the face of the watch is still flawless. It's a synthetic sapphire crystal (which is the type of face you'll find on most high end watches), and usually the only thing that can scratch it are diamonds. You can see places on my watch face where I hit something hard enough to scratch the stainless steel case, but once the knick gets to the crystal, it stops dead.

    The last two watches I've purchased have been Citizens. The first was titanium and to this day still shows very little wear. I recently replaced it with a new stainless steel Eco-Drive and have been equally pleased.

    Citizen looks cool, too! Thanks!

    I personally can't stand Fossil. I had a couple they broke on me, plus they look cheesy for work.

    for nice, inexpensive watches with hands, I'd recommend skagen watches, which can often be found in wristwatch huts in many a mall. for digitals, I've worn g-shocks for the past 17 years. only reason I've had multiples is that I lost one and shorted one out trying to change the battery myself.

    Call me classy, I'm a huge fan of Movado men's watches. GRANTED they can be a pretty penny and you'll be afraid to wear it, but:

    http://www.movado.com/Details.aspx?Id=watchesmens&watchType=Mens&watchCode=&watchId=605613&page=0

    Is very nice.

    HOWEVER if you're less class and more brass, the Special Ops watch that Skor posted is another favorite of mine.

    Also dig this little number by Fossil:
    http://www.fossil.com/shopping/prod...UCT&iMainCat=957&iSubCat=966&iProductID=39156

    And I hear a lot of good things about Fossil watches.
