Hey guys. Looking for a black/darker watch for nights out on the town. Anyone have any recommendations? My budget is about 300-500. I was thinking about this Burberry.

NO!

Read through some of this thread. There's lots of good information including info on dark watches (even in the last 10 pages or so). Bottom line is that with "fashion label watches" you are paying 20% for the watch and 80% for the name.

This. Never buy a fashion branded watch. They are POSes with a pretty name.

What do you guys think of this watch? Saw it at Macy's and fell in love! I love vintage pieces, but don't have the coin to buy such beauties. This one is a re-edition but I think it has been perfectly executed

This one is under 2k. I saw a JLC that was going for near 8k and it was identical.

^ I was supposed to get one of those a few months back. It wears a bit on the small side though. There's one for sale on TZ for $1500.

By the way, please don't say it looks identical to the JLC. That JLC (tribute to Polaris) is a limited edition of 768 pieces and houses an in-house JLC movement with an alarm complication. It's like saying a seiko diver is identical to the submariner.

Will be hard to find for $300-500.

This is a nice watch...

This one looks great without the pricetag.

BTW, just figured I'd throw this out for anyone here looking for a very classy suit watch without breaking the bank...these are top shelf watches at an EXCELLENT price.

Was never a fan of Longines for men. Their women models are nice, but for men, I'd look elsewhere. Just my opinion.
