I love the look of this watch – not too fancy; almost pedestrian – but solid and reliable. It’s a nice bonus that it’s assembled in the U.S. – good things do still come from Detroit, apparently.

This is a fine looking watch. From Uncrate:
…with a stainless steel case coated in black PVD, a triple-coated, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, and water resistance down to ten atmospheres, these watches definitely live up to their name. They feature self-winding swiss mechanical movement, luminous hands and hour markers, a nylon strap with a deployant clasp, and a four-blade-rotor second hand alluding to the Cougar AS 532 helicopter.

Yeah, at $10,000, it’s never gonna see my wrist, but a guy can dream, right? From Uncrate:

I’ve always liked the G-Shock series from Casio (I’m wearing one right now). This one looks really nice -made of metal instead of resin- but appears it will be out of my price range at the moment. Here are details from Casio’s G-Shock site:

Definitely out of my price range, but man that’s a handsome watch. Allows you to adjust the local time, date and city by twisting the crown. Available in 18k gold or stainless steel, starting at $11,200. Breitling (photo via Uncrate)

This is the watch Felix Baumgartner wore for his amazing jump from the edge of space. With prices from $4,800 to $14,750, it’s definitely out of my price range, but it’s a striking piece.

Casio has about a dozen models in this Black Label series of their Edifice line. I liked this one a lot; the price is alright, too.

The Luminox Men’s 8821.KM Recon Watch is a handsome-looking military watch, and in a price range I can deal with.
