Hey just wanted to see if I can get suggestions on analog watch, that is durable, affordable, looks cool, and water resistant. I know this is sorry if broad, but I want a watch I can travel with and wouldn't be afraid to get dirty. I am huge fan of Nixon watches, but am open to expanding my watch collection. Some eco drives, Seikos. Do appreciate a poly band but doesn't have to be.
Price range is sub $175
Any Suggestions would be nice!

Thanks

Hey, how about looking at the various thread below, The Citizen, the SKX thread, the EDC watch thread, the Vostok thread and you'd get an idea.  They are all just below  so please do yourself a favor and look at those thread.  A dive watch is something you're looking for IMO.  Good luck.

Sort of depends what "cool" means, what water resistance you need, where you'r going, and whether travelling means hotels or hostels. You're probably looking at a quartz watch at that price (although some okay automatics can also be found like Seiko series 5), so Eco-drive is a good shout and I've had nothing but good experiences with Citizen. I'd go for at least 100 and preferably 200m water resistance, and choose something that doesn't shout "steal me".

Thanks for the replies. I am wanting a citizen made of a polyurethane band eco drive that won’t break the bank. Unless one can convince me of another traveling band
