How many watches do you own? I own about 15 men's watches because I'm a watch nut. I even own some womens watches. They are not high end watches nor are they just one type of watch. They are classical watches, sports watches and chronograph watches. Some of them are very good middle price watches, others are $15 replicas, purchased in Bali, of Rolex and Patek Philippe watches. Unless you were a watch expert you would not know the difference. Naturally I wouldn't expect to buy such watches on the internet, except perhaps on Ebay, nor would I expect to buy a really expensive mens watch such as a $15,000 Patek Philippe Aquanaut watch on the internet. Why? Because I would want to feel it, try it on, test the watch strap and then fall in love with it. I would however, buy a nice wear it everyday watch on the internet such as the watches shown below.
Swatch Touch Watch
Men's Swatch Windfall Chronograph Watch
This is a really nice sporty timepiece with a classic design and silver and black coloring. In fact it looks very similar to the Omega Speedmaster which costs around $3,000. Not surprising really as Swatch actually own that high end watch brand. The Windfall looks like a high end time piece but can be purchased for as little as $115. It has a chic black face and small skeleton hands including a seconds hand and luminous tips that don't interfere with your view of the 3 sub dials on the face plus a date window. It has white stick hour indicators and minute indicators around the outer edge. It is made of alliminium but still feels solid if not heavy. The crystal casing on the face is scratch resistant and the wrist band which is linked feels comfortable on the wrist. It is water resistant to 30 metres however it is not suitable for swimming.
Swatch Men's Cool Days Watch
This stainless steel men’s precise Swiss quartz movement watch is a wonderful choice for an everyday timepiece. It is inspiringly stylish in silver and has a satin finish to the watch case which is topped by a flattened bezel with the engraved Swatch logo. Its stainless steel bracelet band is triple linked. The blue dial features 24 hour notations, small two minute numerals around the outer edge, large luminous dauphine hands including a second hand, and black outlined Arabic numerals in a serif font. This watch also has a date and day window, and is water resistant to about 30 metres. It is not really suitable for swimming however.
