Ha ha - awesome! I'll add my cheapies after I take a picture of 'em, though me thinks I'll be sorely outclassed in this thread...

But I share the disease, I'd have dozens if I could afford 'em. I'm more of an analog kinda' dude - so I gravitate towards the classics (divers/chronograph) look. Not too into digital anymore... I'm a cheap watch whore too digging Casio watches for the reliability and durability.

Stock photos of my very limited current selection:

Casio Men's Marine Ana-Digi Divers Watch #AMW320R-1EV (I think it is nearing end of life... doing weird time gains/losses on analog)
Click the image to open in full size.

Casio Men's G-Shock Solar Powered Digital Sports Watch #G2310-1V (indestructible, survives everything it seems...)
Click the image to open in full size.

Timex - I have an older version similar to this (non-Indiglo) that my watch smith adores. He calls it a true diamond in the rough - excellent movement and construction... Who'd thunk it? Timex?

Want to buy:

Citizen Eco-Drive Men's Chronograph Stainless Watch #AT0550-03E

CASIO G-Shock Mens 5 Motor All Analog Chronograph Watch G1000-1A
Click the image to open in full size.

Casio Men's Sea Analog Illuminator Dual LED Watch #MDV102-1AV
Click the image to open in full size.

Luminox Men's 700 Series Silver Series Blue Watch #703 (dead sexy)
Click the image to open in full size.

TAG Heuer Men's Carrera Chronograph Leather Watch #CV2010.FC6205 (probably the only Carrera I'll ever own... )
