Florida May Have Lost, But This Watch is a Winner!

My Gators lost to Michigan today in the NCAA Basketball Tournament.  They Gators were just plain beat in their Elite 8 showdown with Michigan.  But, the tournament was a great excuse to wear my GameTime Agent watch.

You can get Gametime watches for most of the big time sports schools and many professional sports team.  Of course, these look the best because of the logo!

Game Time also makes Georgia Bulldog watches.  But, they may be difficult for actual UGA graduates to use.  They aren't digital!

A Striking Armitron in Black

I've been looking at this striking black Armitron for the past couple of years.  It looks like a very practical watch.  I really like the angled numerals on the face. However, the shiny silver numbers look just a little cheap to me.  The watch always catches my eye.  I stop. I check it out.  I hem and I haw and then I pass on it.  Typically, this Armitron sells for $60 at Walmart.  Now, it's marked clearance and it's a great deal.  However, I remained strong ...and poor.  Some day, this watch will find a home with someone else.  It is a very cool watch!

Armitron watch designers have been on a bit of a roll.  This Stainless Steel Black Ion is a fantastic looking watch. I think I've found it online here at

Nice Military Timex Spotted at Walmart

Timex has been bringing their A-game to my local Walmart.  I recently saw one of their premium military-inspired Expedition watches on display.  The price is competitive for this model as well.

It's a little more rugged looking than my current Timex Expedition Military Field watch.  In black, it has tactical mall ninja written all over it.  They also have this style of Timex field watch for a reasonable price.  It's nice to see something interesting behind the watch counter again!

A Tale of Two Casio Lines - G Shock and Illuminator

I visited another Walmart to check out watches.  They have Casio G Shock models priced from $46.92 to $89.92.  They are generally basic black models that emphasize rugged functionality over more colorful style.  I almost think the G Shock watch might be tougher than my flesh and bone wrist.

If the G Shock is too expensive and you do want colorful flair, regular Casio Illuminator Digital Watches can be had at some Walmarts in a variety of colors.  Walmart has them for only $18.88.

This World Time Illuminator is often seen in stores for about $24, but Kohl's had it online for only $19.96.  As you progress through timezones, the areas affected are darkened on the world map at the 9 o'clock position.  I think this has to be one of the coolest inexpensive digital watches on the planet.  It's a lot of watch for less than $20.

For an even cheaper watch deal, check out this bargain basement Casio!
