shopping for a watch?

I’ve been looking around for watches lately. I’ve been scouring the internet and hitting the malls. I’ve found the very best place to look for men’s watches is at Marshall Fields. Their selection is enormous. They even break up their watches into two sections. The first section is right inside the entrance. Those are the pricey watches: Tag Heuer, Armani, etc. The second section has alotta stuff.

There’s a fair selection of crazy, swatch-like watches. However, the volume of classic metal-band watches are unmatched. I’ve only been to the Fields in Oak Brook. I haven’t visited the Fields downtown or any other suburban location. I can only imagine what the selection is like downtown.

So if you’re looking for a watch, check out fields in the city before those damn new yorkers take over the store.

I’ve always been unimpressed by Field’s selection. I’ve been buying my watches at Nordstrom

I got a watch a couple months back and it came from Fields. I can’t speak to the selection of Fields though as the watch was a gift and I never had to shop for it personally.

I will say that is is very difficult to find a good looking professional (non-digital) watch with an alarm. The few that are out there are pretty expensive.

Aesthetics are my only criteria as well, truly. A watch really has to look cool first and foremost. I will say, though, that I won’t buy a watch if it has a lot of gadgets I will never use, no matter how cool it looks

I recently had to give up on the alarm feature as it narrowed down my choices too much.
