Have a look at the selection Long Island Watch have to offer. Something for everyone there & plenty within your price range.

If coverage is the goal, also have a look at what are called Bund straps. It takes the right watch to pull it off but good coverage and a distinctive look. It's the type of watch strap Robert Redford wore in the movie Three Days of the Condor. There are also "cuff straps" which go even further for covering the wrist.

The first step would be deciding if you want a quartz or mechanical movemenet.

A quartz watch is your regular battery powered watch. It's cheap, reliable and you don't really have to worry about it until it needs a battery change every 3-5 years.

A mechanical (or automatic) watch is powered by gears and springs. It's the same technology that's been used in watches for hundreds of years. It's expensive, sensitive, inaccurate and stops if you don't wear it for 2 days but it's the enthusiast's choice because it's cool.

Once you decide which one of these is for you, I'd recommend just browsing r/Watches on Reddit and see what's out there. You'll have an easier time picking out a watch if you know what kind of movement and style you want.
