I don't like wrist watches, personally. I have had pocket watches, but I prefer keeping them in belt "holsters."
I get the cheapest I can find. The batteries usually last a year. I replace the batteries (not a hard job) and get another year out of them, but the case wears and I can usually only get a couple battery changes. Then, it's time to get a new one. Prices usually range from $5 to $20.
