I know I’ve saturated this joint with watch content lately… But that’s how it goes. I’m obsessing currently.

Anyway, here’s an email I got recently:

“Ryan, I need a new watch but I don’t want to be bothered by a mechanical and I don’t want to spend more than $200. Suggestions?”

First, I don’t typically recommend quartz watches. If you are on a budget, I always suggest a good Seiko automatic and if you absolutely have to have something bulletproof and battery powered, I like to recommend a G-Shock.

That said, if you have to have a quartz… and you have a gun to my head, buy a Braun. At least from a design perspective, they are on point.
