    Talk about a downer of a watch!

    But I do actually like that V03. I haven't worn a watch since we had kids, always got in the way. Before that I had a nice Seiko and Casio. Nothing fancy, but still worth a couple hundred $. Maybe I'll invest in a decent watch now that my kids are older and I'm not constantly rocking them in my arms.

    Although I will never spend more than a couple hundred dollars on any jewelry item. They always end up broken, lost, or stolen. Most expensive jewelry I ever wore was my wedding ring and that was worth only about $300.

    But I've always been fond of a nice Breitling, although don't even have close the nuts to invest that kind of coin.

    HTWingNut, this should be in your desired price range. It comes in many different flavors too.

    I'd stay clear from that watch, the crystal is raised and is very easy to scratch. If you must get a zag cover for it. (use the one for the Citizen Skyhawk)

    I've had mine for ~4 years, no problems scratching the crystal. I wear it 1-2 times per week on average.

    Also, if I was going to drop "Breitling money" on a pilot watch, I'd go for this:
    note the true 24hr dial with 3 time zone tracking...much more useful than airspeed, wind speed, and fuel burn claculators

    Used mine for office job, ended up with scratches.
    Compared to what Invicta, and Seiko's higher end mineral crystals the Citizen doesn't even come close.

    I've seen a lot of Breitling ads in aviation magazines. Now I kinda want now too :D.

    Although I think the Seiko or Citizen watches are a better compromise. 5% the cost. :p Not that I'll ever fly real planes again, but might get me back into flight sims some more again. :)

    I see you are/were a pilot. Would you actually use those tiny-text calculators in the cockpit? I mean, other than for the sole purpose of proving someone on an internet message board wrong. I personally like watches with math complexities, but I have a hard time seeing them as functional since about 1980.
