I have a problem with watches...I use cheapo's because I tend to destroy them in one way or another...mtn biking, snowboarding, skateboarding, and about any other thing that will make you fall down and scratch the hell out of a watch. I want one that can take some abuse and not show it (meaning that the face won't get so scratched that I can't read the time. I also would prefer something that if it gets lost will not bother me but so much. Must be waterproof and shockproof. Shopping on a rather strict budget so less than $100 would be nice (please don't laugh but all my money goes into kitchen knives).
