    I've owned and worn many Timex epeditions and Casio g-shock watches.....each depending on the purpose at hand.... I prefer the expedition and it is still my go to watch when I do wear one.......both good watches.

    Yeah, at almost $18 million, you'd be set!

    Yes, both good. I've had the G-Shocks and the Casio Pro Trek also. When working/working out they are tough and you don't mind beating them up a bit like you would a more expensive watch.

    That's why I like my dive watches. Even if they are "nicer", they are still a casual watch and not a dress watch. My watch collection definitely leans toward casual, not dressy.

    Anyone have experience with watches made by Stauer? They aren't expensive watches (most around $100), but there are at least a few I'd consider buying. I see their ads frequently in various military and aviation magazines I subscribe to, but I don't ever remember seeing their watches in any retail outlet. Kinda goes against my grain to buy something I can't look at personally, especially since the validity/pedigree of internet "consumer ratings" are questionable.

    Guess they are like everything else, damned by some on that site but praised by others. I did like the bit about them being "gift watches"; sounds like they created a niche, then filled it. I have no illusion what one gets in a $50-$100 watch, but still might take a chance on one of them when my back-up Casio dies. I wear my Eco-Drive at least 95% of the time I wear a watch, but go to the back-up if working outside or traveling to sketchy parts of the world.

    Thanks Roy.
