    They are called Ice, but try and find ones that are branded Avalanche. They are exactly the same, but made by a guy who get fired from Ice. They 100% the same but cheaper.

    Ice Watches, Toy Watches, all lesser imitations of much better watches (most of the designs are lifted straight from Rolex). Plastic, nasty, and outrageously overpriced: some retail in excess of £100, which is sickening for a plastic battery powered watch. They're not clever, and I can't wait for them to go out of fashion (which they inevitably will). Avoid like the plague and spend your money on a proper watch instead - much better in the long-run

    If you are just talking about that general style...well I have an Adidas Cambridge watch in white, they do them in lots of colours though. I think they look great and cost 40-50 pounds, though mine was a present. I prefer not to have a metal watch as they just get scratched, and I don't think leather watches suit me really.

    I have an Ice watch, although I bought mine a few years ago at the Clothes Show when they were fairly unknown for £25! Can't say I have any complaints!

    lol wtf did avalanche et al all come from?

    It's G Shock or die.

    Popularised in music videos, esp. 'urban' (or black people) videos and then probably some lameface wanted to be alternative in their conformity and went for some obscure brand...

    I have a Nixon watch, but Avalanche are exactly the same as Ice, but you also have a cool story to tell people when they ask you about your watch

    I think Swatch has some really nice ones. You should really check them and they are really worth the price considering their good quality!

    Casio G-shocks are the only watches that matter.
