    What about Swiss Army watches? You could get a very good one for under 200 pounds.

    You might be able to get a Gucci watch for that price. As I understand it their movements are made in the same factory as those in Ebel watches so they're pretty good quality- you're not only paying for the name. Obviously that's not true of all designer watches. You're best off going to a really good jewellers and asking them which are the best quality regardless of the name on them and then picking one you think your brother will like.

    Watches don't seem to agree with me - every watch i've ever owned has fallen to pieces on my arm. I've never bothered spending more than £25 on one for this reason.
    What about a fountain pen? You can get beautiful, well balanced ones for a few hundred quid. I got a Caran d'Ache for my 18th, it's as though nymphs are guiding every pen stroke. I wish.

    I've got a Breitling watch and it's fantastic, but whenever I wear it I always feel nervous that I'm either going to be mugged or I'm going to lose it . I much rather prefer to wear my other watch.

    The world's greatest watch is the Breitling Aerospace. With the professional bracelet and none of the gold bits. It's classy, it keeps excellent time, it looks fantastic, it's not too ostentatious, and I'm sure chicks love it :rolleyes:
