best watch for under $100?

My favourite watchmaker is definitely Tag Heuer.  I love my Monza very much so.  However i’ve been wearing my Monza every single day for the past 3 years, and today I decided to pick up a ‘cheap’ watch for under $100, that I can use sometimes to give the Heuer a break…..i’m really picky when it comes to watches—so finding a ‘back up’ ain’t so easy.

So for a mere $50, I picked up a carbon fiber tinged Carrera Athletic Three Hand.

I’m very impressed by the amount of quality they have packed into a lower priced watch.  I think suggested retail for these watches is around $100….but if you have a look around the net, you can find em floating anywhere between $50 and $75.  I haven’t seen alot of them in person, however I gotta say that on first impression, to an outsider, this definitely looks worth MUCH more than $50.  Great stuff.

Here’s the watch I bought, followed by a link to the Carrera Time website, which has a full catalog online.

Audi 100 Coupe.

I have to admit, i am a big Audi fan…..classic and modern ones.  This 100 Coupe is one of the coolest cars i think they ever made.  Not only was the predecessor for the eventual Coupe Quattro, but it was also like a smaller, german interpretation of an Aston Martin V8 Vantage (another one of my favourite 70s cars) OR something that Bertone would have designed for Alfa Romeo in the 70s…like a mini Italian supercar.  Front engined, RWD.  Not many of these made it to the US, but some did—however many more arrived years later as classic cars imported from Europe.
