My Always List: (Cheap) Timex Watch

Here's where my philosophies sort of clash.  I do believe that you get what you pay for, but I also feel that spending tons of money on a 'nice' watch would be a waste (for me).  I would be a bit paranoid to take it out of the case.

Now, you probably know that I'm about as outdoorsy as George Stephanopoulos, but there's just something about this type of watch.

Maybe it's the MacGyver quality.  It's probably the only thing I own with Velcro, too. 

I like how it will last for years.  And if it does get scratched up (hey...cubicles are dangerous), I don't feel that bad.  Timex seems to fit the bill because it does last, and it doesn't cost a fortune.  I also feel naked without it.


  1. I have a watch that looks JUST like that! One accessory that I think is worth a splurge is good sunglasses. They are SO much better than those cheap target glasses...

  2. I've never really been a watch person, but I have two made by Timex. I have one like that with a pink face. The other is the Ironman series that has the iPod control. My husband bought me a Swatch on our honeymoon, but I never wear it.

  3. You should check out J.Crew's military watch! It's high on style, versatile in that you can swap out the band, and doesn't break the bank at $150. My boyfriend loves his! Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

  4. Thanks for the comments, ladies! Mackenzie, I have totally lusted after that J.Crew watch, but they have not put it on sale yet. :)

  5. Love this post. I've got my favorite inexpensive picks that I am in love with-my t-shirt collection from Target. It's my thing!
