    it's going to be my birthday (18) soon and I don't know if it's really sensible to spend a lot on a watch? p.s. I'm looking at buying this https://www.amazon.co.uk/Emporio-Arm...mani+watch#Ask

    That's a lot less than I initially expected for a watch.

    Buy cheap or buy expensive, OP. Don't buy £150 fashion label stuff. It's just the cheap stuff with a large percentage added for the brand name.

    Ditto. OP, it's go big or go home. Otherwise you're just wasting your time.

    The kind of timepiece whose elegant marriage of precision assembly, premium materials and overall design pedigree would rightfully command a £130 price-tag? Sure.

    That piece of ostentatious tat? No.

    Its a sound birthday present idea.
    I would say that an Armani watch is grossly overpriced for what it is though.

    I think it's a great watch, I love the all black. I don't understand what everyone's problem is haha, you should buy it. Why would an 18yo need a rolex?

    I have a few watches, one Armani - AR2434 which I really like (mainly due to its stylish look) http://nunodistro.com/wp-content/upl...let-Watch.jpeg

    I'm not saying you have to buy a luxury watch. Nothing wrong with not wanting to spend that sort of money. I'm just saying don't pay over the odds for what is essentially a very cheap watch just because it says 'Armani' on it.

    Rotary, Citizen and Seiko would all be respectable options at that price-point.

    I have a Pulsar watch that cost me £50 in the sale. I’d wait until after Christmas & go on watchshop.com.
    Here you can get expensive watches for a much cheaper price, as it’s likely to be on sale

    Right now there is a 50% sale on watches. I’d go check it out

    I had a good answer for you but apparently editing one word means that your entire post messes up.

    In short, better to buy from the likes of Tissot, Timex and Fossil than Hugo Boss, Armani etc.
    I’m pretty sure UNiDAYS has a discount code for WatchShop too.
