    Came across both when I was trawling the internet obsessively for a watch last year, don't like either of them. What's your absolute maximum budget?

    I think they're pretty nice, I mean, you could wait years to find a 'perfect' watch. Budget is prob £70, I dont see the point in getting a ridiculously expensive watch and paying several hundreds of pounds for just a brand name, Im not a mug. Its just a watch after all. Have you already bought one and if so, which one?

    I'm not a fan of watches with loads of different dials. They're just unnecessary and make the face look too busy.

    That said, I'm not entirely sure what all the dials are for, either.

    Mmm, I envy your lack of fussiness, truly I do. I spent a good week browsing, ended up with the Tissot Le Locle Automatic, just less than £200. Worth every penny, absolutely love it, it's going to last me a long time. For £70, you aren't going to get much better than those two, I'd go for the Accurist if you held a gun to my head.

    The Sekonda one, if I had to choose.
    Try and look around a bit more?
    If you really don't care, brand-wise, take a trip to Argos

    Cheers, have already looked at argos though. Im quite fussy about them, but there's no point in looking for perfect watch cos that might never ome along. I dont like plain ones that much but yeh, I guess its just a watch and is there to tell the time....nuff said.

    I don't like either of them. Then again, I don't think you could get better for £70.

    I really like the first one. I like the watches with loads of dials on them, dunno why. But I think if you were to buy a watch, it should be what you like, not what other people like.

    I'd spend a little bit more and get one of them Uniform Wares ones or maybe even a Toy Watch. I know that second suggestion is somewhat controversial, but I like them.

    hmm, out of those two, the first one the wristband is more satisfyingly chunky
