New insert, new look

Nice beat up look. Goes well with the veiny manly wrist/forearm.

advice on getting a dress watch

Hi guys, sorry for the noob question but I was thinking of buying my first proper watch for work (and maybe casual) purposes - a simple dress watch to wear to work everyday (or almost everyday) would be ideal.

Was thinking of buying one where the straps can be changed easily to fit the occasion. Initially thought of getting a Daniel Wellington but i've read that it's not that great of a watch and most of the cost is for the marketing.

Assuming a budget of 100+ to 200+ dollars, any recommendations (in terms of brands and also where to get them) in light of the above? Or know of any shops (central-ish) that I can go and make enquiries?

Thanks so much, have a good week everyone. Cheers.
