My dad asked me what I want for Christmas and I decided I want a watch, but don't know which one to get. Budget is up to £200 but happy to stay well within that! I would like something that is reasonably chunky and funky rather than dainty and elegant ... quite liked Swatch ones in the past but don't much like any of the ones on their website at the moment. Give me your suggestions!

My micheal kors is chunky and funky rather than dainty and I love it. Although everyone seems to have them now. I didn't get the traditional rose gold sparkly one as it was too big on my wrist but he has some gorgeous chocolate one and some nicer funky colours like red and green. Prob slightly over £200 but they might go down in the sales if you can wait til after for your pressie?

Sorry - just noticed that one is currently out of stock everywhere. This is also lovely.

Skagen is nice.

I've always had storm watches. Most are a bit dainty but there is a wide range.

I've got this one and I love it but it might be a bit smaller than you're looking for.

On a previous thread someone recommended Christopher Ward watches and I bookmarked it straight away.

Thanks! I actually hadn't heard of that brand before but have been having a look and really like some of them ...

Oh wow just seen all the suggestions here - thanks so much! Am veering towards one with a silver coloured bracelet ...
