I don't know if I'm totally behind on the manly watch trend, but I just picked up a spiffy lil' timepiece from Target. Sadly, it's not in their online store, but if you look for it in-store, I believe it is literally called "the boyfriend watch."
What I like is that it maintains the nice, masculine feel of a guy's watch without having an overwhelmingly huge face. And at $15, it was a pretty easy decision to take it home with me.
Note: I had 2 links taken out since the band runs big, which costs about $10 more. But hey - $25 total? - not bad!
