I want a Luminox. Just don't know if I should spend that much on a watch (they are $250 -$600). I am very hard on watches. They must be waterproof and can't be very fragile.

He forgot to add, can survive military combat operations (25 months in 85-125+ heat), in Iraq... like a great heavy duty tank. Use the hell out of mine, until this month I lost the thing. That watch took 6 direct fire engagements, while moving under covering fire. Been exposed to high energy shock waves over 20 times. Excessive vibrations from multiple moving vehicles, and never failed. Also, never took it off in the shower so imagine wet conditions to arid desert 2 times a day for 25 months.... never failed. Also, that watch was responsible for saving over 10 people's lives (pulse/respiration counts)... so yeah... spend the 40 bucks on a good watch, not a follex!

Here's the stainless steel Folio automatic watch I wear for dress. It was on sale a couple of years ago at Wally World for $70.

That's actually a nice watch FP. I have trouble with watches.. I do have a G-Shock watch that's huge, that I bought a while back for $100. It fits well, and doesn't look small on me. I also have a Movado that my Dad & Stepmom bought me for christmas one year. They had to have 4 links added to it if I remember right. But it fits well, but it looks a little small. So I very rarely wear it. That and the fact that it was a $700 watch makes me want to wear it less. I'll have to look into those Folio watches..

Pretty nice. I prefer simple looking watches, so that fits.

And it's automatic, so no batteries to replace. I can't bring myself to buy one of those expensive autowinders (they just vibrate to keep thew watch wound). I only wear it for dress occasions so I just set the time whenever I put it on.

It's also a big watch (I am not a small person).
