save up and get an Oris or a Tag.

If you need one now, Bulova isn't bad, or u can go with a BMW watch. I believe the BMW watches are Swiss movement.

+1 to Seiko. My old watch was a nice looking Seiko, and it lasted over 5 years w/o needing to replace the battery.

You can buy a nice swiss timepiece used on a reputable watch forum for a decent price.

Save and get something a little bit better than a cheapo $200 watch. Just my 2 cents.

Hamilton's are nice entry watches with Swiss movements. You'll have to bump up to +$500.

Check out Bulova. My first dive watch when I got certified was an Accutron and served me well for years. I've since lost it and wish I still had it. Bulova makes a nice product.

A Citizen Eco-drive should be in your price range. It's recharged by light. I have one that's still going strong after 8 years.

but the thread title is about suggesting a good watch. g-shocks are a step or two above happy meal watches and that's about it

Great watch. Heavy, solid feeling watch that wears well with full dinner suits as well as your gym kit. It's my daily wearer and Ive no reason to change it. Was torn between the carrera or Omega Seamaster, and Id still pick the carrera any day of the week.

Exactly. Which do you have? I kept it simple and didn't go with the chrono:
