Watches, like everything in fashion, can go terribly wrong. We need only reference the watches of rappers and compensating celebrities, adorned with enough diamonds to have tangible impacts on Antwerp economy. In the end, all watches do one thing and one thing only: tell time. Seiko, forever the maker of the everyman’s watch, does it just as well any. A simple handsome analog face set in a metal case contains all the basic functions: stopwatch, calendar date, luminous dials and waterproof to over 300 feet. A durable and comfy fabric strap keeps it on your extremity. And for the price of one of those iced-out watches, you can buy it and a two bedroom/two bath walk-up condo in Manhattan.
