If you need it solely for the effect of wearing one, then I'd highly suggest the $12 ones for sale at Wal-Mart.

If you do get one of those Walmart watches, be warned. I got one of them for my sister, one of the carabiner kinds, the glass broke the first time it got run over by a automobile.

Fortunately the it seems to be okay other wise. Now I'm looking for a piece of clear plastic or glass that I can use to replace it with.

Am I the only one who finds the idea of having a watch not survive an argument with an automobile not all that much of a problem?

To be honest, I'm rather impressed it's still working. But when it comes to products of Walmart, I like to make them work for their praise.

Now that 5$ hip flask I got from them is another story. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get particulate out of a hip flask?

There are some very cheap pocket watches here: http://www.wholesalepocketwatches.com/cat_pocket_watches.cfm
though the one I ordered gains exactly two minutes every week.

And I am very much tempted by that anti-clockwise watch!
