    In the under one thousand dollar range, I would try Coach watches. They are manufactured by Movado so not complete junk and they come in a variety of styles ranging from real crocodile strapped numbers to Cartier-inspired tank designs.

    While several are featured on their website, your best bet would be to shop around at a Coach near you.

    what i would recommend to you then is to finance a more expensive timepiece... women have the handbag, men have the watch. with financing, a number of the much more expensive models become much more do-able.

    (cheap cartiers are only like three or four thousand)

    I'd think hard, not once but twice, before borrowing to buy luxury goods... I'm not saying I'd never do it, but it's really not smart IMO.

    i agree with Tott on this one. don't buy something unless you can pay it out within couple of months! at least that's my rule. :p

    Michele watches are really pretty & good quality for that price. Also, look into Fendi & Gucci.

    Come on guys, I'm sure you can find a nice, good quality watch for under $600. Don't take out loan for the sake of appearing fashionable. I never knew men had to wear a different timepiece for the evening, so unless you're wearing a watch with a rubber wristband during the day I doubt anyone would notice. :innocent:

    Can someone suggest some nice watches to me? I am on a tight budget $100-150. I also like small faces and silver (or pink).

    You're a girl, yes? (sorry in advance, if you're not). A dress watch, a night out watch or a day watch?

    Yes, I'm a girl :)

    I am looking for a watch for any occasion.

    Mike - what do you mean by face down?

    Do you guys think those thick band watches look dumb on a girl w/ a skinny wrist? I love them but I don't think I can pull it off...

    The Dolce one is adorable :)

    According to Trinny and Susanna ('What not to wear') a big heavy watch should accentuate your little feminine wrists by contrasting with them...I don't know if that's true or not...

    wow...i didn't even know d&g made watches.

    and by face down i meant the time would be on the underside of your wrist. makes some watches just look like leather (or silver) bracelets
