I think they both look great… depends on how he’ll be wearing it I suppose, and what he does in life career wise etc.  The first one is far more traditional dressy than the second…

I like the fact that they are shatterproof.  Are they scratch proof too ?

That is my & Mr TTR’s greatest downfall with watches… we tend to scratch / damage the crystal face.

Which sucks.

I got my fiancee a citizen eco-drive watch and he loves it!

@southern_sweetheart91:  What’s your budget? My FI is a watch guy and can give some good suggestions, but I need to give him a place to start 🙂

I have been researching watches for my guy too. Do you want a sportier watch or dressier? What’s your budget?

@southern_sweetheart91:  I agree with @redheadbride58:. On our last vacation when I treated myself to a Michael Kors watch he bought a Citizen Eco-Drive watch.  It cost more than 2 of my MK watches, but he loves it and he had smashed his last watch at work, this one has not been broken and it automatically changes time when we go into a new time zone (or daylight savings).  It does a bunch of other stuff too.

@southern_sweetheart91:  I have gotten my guy two edgy looking, reliable, well made watches in the 200 range from guess. He loves them both.

My FH is really into watches and he’s told me a little about it and he says mechanical movement is always best.  (I have no idea, lol)  He has a Rolex Date Just from the 80’s that’s mechanical, but his “adventure” watch is a Casio Pathfinder that I purchased for him at Kohl’s.  I can’t remember exactly, but I paid around $220 for that one.  He’s owned Citizen watches before and I LOVE them.  (He wore Citizen when he was an EMT so it got smashed around on metal things constantly and held up really, really well.)  It scuffed, but the face never shattered or cracked.  For $300 to $500, I’d vote for citizen.  They’re all beautiful and they’re incredibly durable!
