When my expensive gshock stopped working suddenly I was determined not to fall into the expensive watch trap again. Now I hate to be morbid but I've known of people fall from great heights or be washed up after many days in the sea with the only thing left ticking was their Sekonda watch. This watch is very basic but does exactly what it says on the tin, tells the time. It felt very lightweight compared to my last watch but I'm used to it now. It's also great for teaching the kids how to tell analogue time. At under 15 quid I can't fault this watch in any way.
