I have this which I asked DH for as a christmas present as I realized I needed a second hand for work, but i now wear it all the time as I really love it. Also have this which I sometimes wear on daysoff/nights out. Also have one similar tothis which I've had for about 12 years and I wear occassionally. I do like quite classic styles rather than following trends.
I don't spend much money on watches since having one that cost £100 that I didn't really like that much and which cost £15 or so for new battery/new strap.
I now spend £5 on one from the stall in the shopping centre and when they die (usually after about 2 years) I buy another one. Just got one actually, it's fine and dandy.
Apply similar policy to sunglasses - always breaking or losing them anyway so best buy cheap. It does help that I don't feel that passionately about any watch on my wrist in general - I guess if there was one I really really loved Iwould spend ££ to have it, but for me it's all about fucntion.
