It's our 10th wedding anniversary coming up and I want to get him a nice watch as a present. I am a bit skint but have a tax rebate on it's way so I don't mind spending a bit. Absolute top whack £500 but a bit less would be nice.

Any ideas? He will want to be able to wear it to work I think, so not too outrageous or trendy.

have a google for U-Boat watches - i bought my DH one a few xmas's ago and he loves it. they are quite big, but DH is a 20st rugby player, so the bigger the better....

Ooh they're nice neeerly3, thanks, might investigate. DH is definitely not a 20st rugby player though...grin

Longine sell beautiful watches.

Timeless and classic.

I have the Dolce Vita that my dh bought me 5 years ago, I still love.

Longines looking a wee bit pricey for me I reckon everlong.

When dh was eyeing up watches for his 40th, he was taken with Breitling and Tag Heuer.

yeahbut have just checked those after you posted, my pennies aren't going to stretch that far unfortunately

I was liking the Breitling ones especially.

That's a good idea CD.

Where is a good place to look for decent second hand watches, do you (or anyone else) know? Is Ebay the right place for something like that? I'm always a bit wary of it, no idea why really.

Hi Flowery, (I was mojomumy, but have ended that..)

I would recommend having a look at . I bought DH his rolex from there - might help you £'s go further

Hi fantastic!

I've been googling and have found that site, it's looking good! Lots of pre-owned ones on it within my price range.

The branded watch company ( sorry crap at links ) has mens longines watches for around £350 upwards.

Just seen a lovely Dolce Vita for £440. worth a look.

cheers everlong will check that out as well

I have stretched and strained my budget and bought him a lovely pre-worn Tag Heuer from Hoorah! Am v pleased, as long as it turns up in the mint condition it's apparently in!

Thanks ladies
