My Boyfriend or Best Friend has one of those ecodrive watches where the watch face is a mini solar panel, so it never needs new batteries. He really likes it. Do you have a budget for the watch? Because I know of a lot of nice watch brands but some of them are on the expensive side…

I LOVE Skagen watches. They have really fine mesh bands and the faces are just beautiful. I especially love their line of blue-faced watches. I’m not sure if I’m allowed to post links on this site, but just google Skagen. Their site is nice, and I bought one in person at a Fireworks store a few years ago. I’m sure there are other brick and mortar stores in which you can find them as well.

I’ve bought Boyfriend or Best Friend several watches.  He likes Fossil watches and I got him a nice, engraved pocket watch with a line form a favorite movie – your SO could wear it as a ‘suit watch’ which I think is coming back into style these days. 

I like this, but it may be too pricey (it is for me)

I don’t know what your budget is so I don’t know if this will help you or not. But I got my now Darling Husband a Tag Heuer as his engagement watch.

This is the watch I gave Fiance before we got engaged:

It’s a Victorinox Swiss Army Mach 4, he loves it.   I actually won it in a prize package, at the time time it was retailing about $1500 USD, but it’s about a year old now, so I’m sure it can be found for less.

Darling Husband picked a Movado watch for his engagement watch. Not only is it beautiful and classic but he was able to wear it on out wedding day. Good luck!

My Fiance has a burberry watch that is amazing. He said its worth about 850. He got it at an outlet for less though.
