Need ideas on a watch for a gift

Post by Guest on 2012-04-12, 01:10

So...Father's Day is coming up, and I want to get Dad a new watch. Here's what the old man is going to want:

Easy to read (he's 71 years old, so nothing too complicated, which means...)
No complications - hour / minute / second hand only, plus maybe a date feature
Automatic movement
Metal band with easy to fasten clasp
Less than USD$200.00
Lightweight - meaning, no Vodolazes please.

So...any ideas?

The following come to mind:
Orient
Seiko 5
Fossil has several easy to read, Chinese movement automatics that fall in that price range.

This looks like something an older gentleman might like, if he can deal with the open heart.

A little cheaper here but I have never dealt with them.
