I'm in the market for a decent, but affordable watch. Nothing formal -- leather strap, timeless/classic look, clean & uncluttered, fairly minimalistic, solid quality for everyday & non-abused wear, budget of ~$300ish. I dress business casual and only need to wear a suit a couple of times a year, so pairing with standard business wear isn't a need. I know that's not a lot of budget in terms of high end watches, but should get me something far better than the basic Fossils, Skagens, etc. for something that's more utilitarian than passion, but I also don't want garbage. There's a Shinola outlet fairly close with plenty in that price range, but I've heard mixed reviews with their watches (although their leather goods are really nice); these are first quality, but a past season's design or color or overstock.
Any recommendations? I'm in no rush at all & can wait for seasonal sales.
