I need a new watch

I desperately need a new watch. My current watch is an EleeNo Art 8, from TokyoFlash. It serves its purpose well: it looks cool, and it confuses people.

But now I need a GEEK'S watch. I need a good quality small DIGITAL watch with the date, multiple time zones (3+ would be ideal), a nice backlight, and that's about it. Casio makes a lot, but they're all hideously ugly. I need something I can wear to work. Plain black would be just fine. I checked ThinkGeek, but they have very few digital watches. Amazon has a bunch of crap for the most part (Casio and Nike brand). So far my best bet has been Fossil, but I've read bad reviews about their digital watches.

I don't want something cheap. I want something that'll last a few years. But all the "good" watches seem to be analog. Blarg.

I'm a fan of Timex. Some even connect with USB. But I know what you mean.

I feel your frustration there. I like digital watches for their clarity and accuracy, but man are they ugly. I've boycotted the watch industry the last 4 years because of it...I just use my cell phone.
