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.
