    Ralph Lauren does a fantastic job, too. I've handled each of these models before, and they are all solid watches.

    I was given this in 2000. Recently I popped into a brand of Hugo Boss and saw nothing equal to this in design or execution



    (The bracelet is good quality too, but the 19mm spring bars are doing important work elsewhere )

    Unfortunately it's a woman's watch, and it had a hot-pink strap on it when I saw it.
