Our father has no other ideas for a gift from him and me to the kiddo than - go figure - a watch. I can get along with that, especially that I’d love to give my little brother something to remember me - his big brother - by. Something that will hopefully be his watch for years and decades to come.
In case of MSRPs by the 450-500USD mark, I am limited to brands that I can get with my employee discount, that being Certina, Tissot (Longines and Rado are not an option), Citizen and Casio G-Shock. My little half-brother already has a digital beater, so I thought of giving him something more serious, so a G-Shock isn’t exactly most fitting here.
Certinas can take a beating, but could be too serious for a kid. My thoughts go to Citizen, some basic Eco-Drive in titanium or a mid-size Promaster Diver. The last option speaks to me the most, but he might grow out of it in 5-6 years.
Some Timex Q reissue is also an option, the kid always gazes at whatever vintage watch I am wearing.
So...kinda serious, not too serious, can take some beating, doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, sub-40mm.
If you could offer any suggestions, that’d be great!
