Got a Breil watch for my 30th a while back from my dad. Didn't wear it all that much, but have started to latterly since he passed a few months back. Its a nice watch, but the strap gets caught on my wrist hair occasionally and that can be annoying!
A man can, nay should be judged by his watch collection the good thing about Eco-Drives is that you can leave it off for a while in favour of another and not have to worry about the battery running out.
By the way, really enjoyed Dubrovnik mate. It was ridiculously hot (35-40 all week), especially in the old town with the walls holding all the heat in but it's an absolutely beautiful part of the world. When you went was the restaurant there at the top of the cable car? unbelievable views
I've got a couple of watches, both cheap ones, a £40 Sekonda which I've had for about 10 years and a Smiths Empire 5 jewel wind up mechanical watch which my old Dad bought in 1945 when he was demobbed from the Royal Navy, apart from several new straps the only repair to the smiths watch was to have a new dial glass fitted years ago.
Got a watch as my graduation present, before that it's not something I've really bothered with Not necessary something I would have chosen myself but still looks pretty decent. Most of the watches I've seen in the past which I like the face is way too big and wouldn't suit me with my tiny wrists!
I had one similar to the one Ellis posted. I liked it, was simple and looked smart. Lost both my watch and my phone at Cambridge away last season though. Not had one since, Although do always get tempted to buy a new one.
