It's Official#I need a new watch

And I need your help deciding which one to get. This is what I have right now:



I haven't had a problem with it until I dropped it yesterday. I was washing my hands in the bathroom and it dropped from the sink to the floor - nothing too major I thought. Except now it doesn't keep time well.

So Ive been looking online at watches, and have come up with some possibilities...

#1

These are kinda in the same style (different brand) as mine, except in Titanium

#2

This one is Titanium too, but classier

#3

Kind of a mix between 1 and 2

#4

This one looks pretty slick...

#5

This might be my favorite of the bunch...

#6

Almost looks like a face


So...any strong preferences, or suggestions of your own? I'd like to keep the price under $150, but I want a watch that will last. I guess I could go back to the store and get my watch fixed (it's got a warranty on it), but I'm kinda in the mood for something new, plus I wouldn't mind a lighter watch, and titanium watches are quite light...

Fire away!

none of the watches have numbers that go all the way around...I hate watches with lines instead of numbers...they confuse me.

get a Timex...it takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin' ...that way, next time you drop it, it wouldn't break

Ok, so I think I've narrowed it down to the final three.

#1

In blue

#2


#3


#3 is the most expensive, but not by that much. I want an everyday watch, so #2 might be a little too classy to wear at work...but it's titanium so it should be able to take some abuse.

I like #1 in blue, but #3 looks like it has more useful features
