What is a good watch for men to give as a gift?

i wanna give my boyfriend a nice watch for men. He has been talking about the G-shock watch, but they are way too expensive for me. I need one to be in the twenty dollar area. A little bit more is ok but not too much. Please what is a good one? Im ordering it in amazon. Thanks

A very quick introduction to watches and then, below, some suggestions:

Watch lovers love mechanical watches. Mechanical watches are anachronistic; quartz (battery) watches are more accurate and less expensive. Good mechanical watches can cost several thousand to tens of thousands of dollars and are intended to last decades or longer. Patek Philippe, Rolex, and others make watches at this level.

Most people do not want such an expensive watch, and watches in the $30+ range are accurate and reliable. (Timex makes watches at this level.)

For a bit more, you can choose a watch with better finishing details and have more options (style-wise). If you’re willing to spend up to $100 or so you can choose from innumerable styles of quartz watches that will be well-made and reliable. Watches at this level will be steel and, if you wish, gold-plated. Seiko and many others make watches at this level.

(In between extremely good mechanical watches and $100 watches are quartz watches made by serious watch companies that also make mechanical watches. These watches are made of gold so they cost quite a bit more than $200, and their finishing detail is usually very well done. Watches in this range might cost from $1,200 to $15,000+. Baume et Mercier and many others make watches at this level.)

For him, look at Seiko, among others. They make many different styles and their quality is good.

David asks…

How much money should I ask for when selling a real Louis Vuitton purse?

I might be selling my real Louis Vuitton handbag I never use on KSL.

For those of you who don’t know, KSL is a Utah-based website for buyers looking for a good deal.

What is a reasonable asking price?

Louis Vuitton purses can reach prices of $2,000.00 but I know I won’t get that much.

rmahadevan answers:

You can possibly sell a genuine Louis Vuitton purse (with the tags/certificates, dust bag & original box) for more than what you paid for it or more than the origial price due to the price increases on LV bags. The same holds true if your bag is one that is discontinued from LouisVuitton.com. Of course your bag must be in good condition provided that there are no stains or water marks on the bag or the vachetta leather. The lighter the leather on the vachetta the more you can possibly sell it for becuase the more a LV is carried out in the sun, the darker the leather tans & some prefer a light colored patina (tan) on the leather than the darker shades of tan & brown. How much did you pay for your LV? Check the LouisVuitton (official site) & try to find your exact bag & see what it’s going for now. Louis Vuittons NEVER go on sale & websites offering LV’s for cheaper are actually selling fake or replica bags that are made out of similar materials. You could get in alot of trouble selling a replica or fake LV as a real one so I’m trusting that you have a real one.

If you have a picture of your bag you may want to join the purse forum http://forum.purseblog.com/louis-vuitton/ (it’s free) & ask this same question on their along with posting pics of your bag. You will find answers & even a potential buyer maybe on there. I’m a memeber & that site is addicting! The women in the Louis Vuitton chat threads will be able to give you a good estimate if they saw your bag. Also, (I just discovered this site) you can go to this website; http://www.authenticlovers.com/ $ sell your bag on here!It’s a site that sells & will let you sell authentic designer goods like LV handbags, ect, ect! You can look at other LV bags that are being sold on there to determine what yours could go for!

I bought mine from the official LouisVuitton.com to ensure that my new LV was genuine (there are no officially liscensed LV stores near me but alot of fake bags going around). I saved my money up to get it & it was worth every dollar to me! I love my LV & don’t plan on selling it but passing it down (yes the quality is that good) to my great neice someday. I always walk a lil’ bit taller when sporting my genuine LV for some reason (maybe because it’s such a classy bag & makes me feel classy). You may change your mind about selling because I know lots of ppl who have sold their bags & then regretted it later on!

Daniel asks…

How do you know if Louis Vuitton purses off Ebay are real or fake?

I am considering ordering a Louis Vuitton bag off Ebay.
I have no experience with Ebay so could you please help me out?
What are some ways to know if it’s real or fake based simply off of the one picture that you can look at and the not very detailed description?

rmahadevan answers:

I’m a professional ebay shopper haha so I’ll give you some really good tips that have always worked for me…..If you’re ordering a Louis Vuitton item you’ll want to look at the sellers feedback. If they have 0 feedback I would walk away no matter how great the deal looks. A ton of scammers will post a LV item on ebay with a 0 feedback score meaning that is their 1st and probably last item they will post on ebay. Another hint of a fake or scam is there are no pics except for 1 pic that looks like a stock photo.

Sometimes too a seller with a high feedback score may of gotten a LV bag as a gift and it was fake but they have no idea because they arent a stylish person and really have no common sense that the bag;s fake. I suggest going into a Louis Vuitton store and getting an up close look at the actual authentic bag, this way you’ll have a good sense of what an authentic one looks like and spend time studying the ebay pics for the auction you’re interested in.

Finally, don’t be fooled by a country. Just because the bag is from Japan or China doesn’t mean it’s fake. There are a bunch of ebay stores on ebay that are overseas and have wonderful authentic bags for great prices. If you see a bag you like take a look at the other items they for sale and the prior feedback. After a while you’ll be able to spot a real LV bag very easily.

Sandra asks…

How do I recognise a real Louis Vuitton bag?

I received a Louis Vuitton bag as a gift but I think it’s just a replica. It is a cherry blossom limited edition bag, but what if it’s just a fake?
I could use some help!

rmahadevan answers:

Well most of these people that answered sound pretty dumb. The ones that have one, most likely fake also, sounds pretty wrong about Louis Vuitton items. LV bags don’t come with Cetificates of Authenticity do to too much counterfeiting.

Well one person had a good point. Usually only a very wealthy person would own a Cherry Blossom bag. Because as you said it’s a, now, a very very very Limited Item that you can’t get anywhere but Ebay. Heck the Umbrella is over $1,000. And most on Ebay are fake. The CB Pochette alone will cost a pretty penny. What type of bag is it? Retro, Pochette, Papillon?? Those are the only type of bags that were made in the CB line. There also a couple of small leather items but you have the bag.

Colors: Brown/ with Pink Cherry Blossoms
Pink/ with Pink Cherry Blossoms
White/ with Yellow-Red Cherry Blossoms.

All Cherry Blossoms faces have to all be facing the same direction and look exactly alike. Look at other pictures on Ebay. Cherry Blossom bags don’t have bags that look exactly alike. If you see a bag with the Blossoms in the same place as you bag than most likely it’s fake. All CB bags have CB placements different. Hope this helps.

Jenny asks…

Do you think the winner of Notre Dame vs Michigan will be ranked next week?

In both the AP and Coaches poll? In one poll but not the other? In neither?

Best answer is to the person who explains why they will or won’t be ranked and why.

rmahadevan answers:

Absolutely. Both schools are essentially media darlings, especially Notre Dame. Both schools are considered decent when they are bad, good when they are decent, and elite when they are good. If either team wins impressively, they will be ranked inside the top 20 easily in both polls, if its close then they will be ranked somewhere between 23-25 in both polls.

Which poll is more important in college basketball AP or ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll?

You know how you watch a college basketball game and watch a #1 team play a #4 team, well how is this ranking compiled; from the AP poll or Coaches Poll?

rmahadevan answers:

Usually ESPN uses their poll, most other news outlets will use both unless it’s the AP who will use their ranking. They are considered equal ranking methods, but I’d like to say that the USA Today/ESPN Coaches’ poll is more accurate because these are coaches voting on who the best teams are, not some journalist who likely may not have played any basketball in his or her life. The AP rankings however tend to pick up who the better “mid-major” teams are, and more often than not, mid major teams are ranked more often in the AP, and higher than they do in the coaches rankings, as most of the coaches are from major conference programs.

Lizzie asks…

Why did the Chinese invent silk and what was it used for?

Also, why is the invention important?
I need this information for a project… And I can’t find some answers on the Internet.

rmahadevan answers:

Silk is a natural protein fiber, some forms of which can be woven into textiles. The best-known type of silk is obtained from the cocoons of the larvae of the mulberry silkworm Bombyx mori reared in captivity (sericulture). The shimmering appearance of silk is due to the triangular prism-like structure of the silk fiber, which allows silk cloth to refract incoming light at different angles, thus producing different colors.

Silk fabric was first developed in ancient China, with some of the earliest examples found as early as 3500 BC. Legend gives credit for developing silk to a Chinese empress, Leizu (Hsi-Ling-Shih, Lei-Tzu). Silks were originally reserved for the Kings of China for their own use and gifts to others, but spread gradually through Chinese culture and trade both geographically and socially, and then to many regions of Asia. Silk rapidly became a popular luxury fabric in the many areas accessible to Chinese merchants because of its texture and luster. Silk was in great demand, and became a staple of pre-industrial international trade. In July 2007, archeologists discovered intricately woven and dyed silk textiles in a tomb in Jiangxi province, dated to the Eastern Zhou Dynasty roughly 2,500 years ago. Although historians have suspected a long history of a formative textile industry in ancient China, this find of silk textiles employing “complicated techniques” of weaving and dyeing provides direct and concrete evidence for silks dating before the Mawangdui-discovery and other silks dating to the Han Dynasty (202 BC-220 AD).

The first evidence of the silk trade is the finding of silk in the hair of an Egyptian mummy of the 21st dynasty, c.1070 BC. The silk trade reached as far as the Indian subcontinent, the Middle East, Europe, and North Africa. This trade was so extensive that the major set of trade routes between Europe and Asia came to be known as the Silk Road.

The Emperors of China strove to keep knowledge of sericulture secret to maintain the Chinese monopoly. Nonetheless sericulture reached Korea around 200 BC, about the first half of the 1st century AD had reached ancient Khotan, and by AD 140 the practice had been established in India.

In the ancient era, silk from China was the most lucrative and sought-after luxury item traded across the Eurasian continent, and many civilizations, such as the ancient Persians, benefited economically from trade.[

Chris asks…

How did the Birmingham Bombing change our history?

This is for a project. Please help.

rmahadevan answers:

There have been three different events called the Birmingham bombing so I’ll include a brief synopsis of each of them.

From 1940 to 1943 Birmingham was bombed by the Germans in an attempt to destroy the cities industrial capabilities. Some 2,000 tonnes of bombs were dropped and over 2,000 people died.
The aftermath was the creation of new housing estates to replace the homes destroyed. It changed history because Birmingham’s determination to fight was not broken, and the city carried on as best it could.

The 1963 Birmingham, Alabama, Church bombing. On September 15, 1963, the 16th Street Baptist Church was bombed by the Ku Klux Klan, killing four girls. There were two other racially motivated killings in the city that day, the shooting of a boy who threw some stones at a car of white boys and a 13 year old boy was shot by two white boys.
How it changed history is that the murders so revolted many Birmingham citizens that they came to the church with flowers (his was white and black people). Ultimately it led to President Johnson signing the Civil Rights Act.

The 1974 Pub bombings. In 1974 the Mulberry Bush and the Tavern in the Town, both in the central area, were hit by IRA bombs. 21 people were killed and 181 were injured. Six people were arrested and imprisoned for the crimes.
How it changed history – because the six people imprisoned were not guilty, they had been set up by a lazy and corrupt police force and, after 16 years in prison they were released. The case showed the British people that the police could be corrupt, and that many cases that the Birmingham police had investigated had to be re-opened.

What Prada bag cost more Chanel,Coach,or Juicy?

Im Going to buy my girlfriend a new purse and don’t know what bag to get her she wont tell me what Brand she likes best so I just want to know what cost more.

rmahadevan answers:

Coach and Juicy are lower end. Prada and Chanel come with a high 4 figure price tag. You’re looking at about $2300 + for a decent Prada or Chanel bag.
You can buy Louis Vuitton pieces for a few hundred (small pieces start around $500).
If you want one of the most expensives bags, feel free to shell out $90,000 on the alligator Hermes Birkin.
Or, you could just buy a house.
Better choices would be Dooney and Bourke, Burberry, Matt & Nat, Samsara, and Le Sportsac if your girlfriend is under 30. They’re cuter, more age appropriate, and have a much better price tag.
There is absolutely no reason to shell out four figures on a present unless you’re a billionaire, and you’re getting married.
Personally, I don’t care for any of the brands you listed. I’d rather have a classy LV, Hermes, Gucci, or Fendi bag.
Chanel bags are a prime target for knockoffs, and almost every one you see on the street is fake. Juicy isn’t classy, as far as I’m concerned. It’s tacky and pretends to be high fashion. Coach is alright, but it’s on the cheaper end of the spectrum and I don’t care for their colours, and Prada looks good on women over 30.

Lisa asks…

What is the most expensive brand, purse wise?!?

The question is self-explantory.
Thanks for your opinions!!<3

rmahadevan answers:

Hermes.
Their Bolide bag is $8,400 and the Birkin bag starts at $7,500, but can reach 5- & 6-digit prices, meaning a bag could theoretically cost as much as, or more than a house or Ferrari!

Is this a original LONGINES WATCH?

just got a longines watch with a heavy price tag and just wanted to know if it was original or not..
it’s a Longines Chrono homme acier et cuir – Mouvement Automatique # – L2.673.4.78.3

please see the photos- http://postimg.org/gallery/6gdmfzyg/

rmahadevan answers:

Were they bought on eBay, Etsy, Amazon, Craigslist, Costco, Asos Market, street vendors, or online store? Kiosk @ the mall? NOT REAL. Those places are BUYS AS IS.
Were they bought @ Certified (insert name brand here) dealer like Saks, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Nike, Prada, Lucky, Converse, Kohl brands, Free People, Juicy, Fox Croft, J. Crew, Banana Republic, Miss Me, and True Religion or any department stores in your city? THEY’RE REAL. Those stores don’t sell fake Designer Labels or brands! Outlet stores, Marshall’s, TJ Maxx, Ross, etc. . . . Don’t sell fake merchandise, or they would have been CLOSED down. They sell the same quality products as those other bigger stores, 35-45% less, because they’ve been rejected by Quality Controllers. They may have a small flaw, packaging dents, scratched, or ripped, maybe the hem was off, or missing a button or belt loop . . .or who knows what they were looking for but 90% nothing wrong with them!
Example: A Tiffany & Co. Subsidiary is suing Costco, claiming the wholesale club operator has been selling engagement rings wrongly labeled “Tiffany” rings. 2-14-13

Do you know how Storage Wars guys get their valuing from? The same store that sells them, or if they find the owner/designer/seller of the original product brand.

Do the same.
This is YAHOO, it’s a world wide web and many of us are not certified appraisals or work @ pawn shops, jewelry stores, flea markets, antique dealers etc. Or KNOW anything about watches. Take it to one of the stores above.

Ruth asks…

Longines Master:
http://www.watches-of-switzerland.co.uk/brands/longines-watches/master-2/longines-master-collection-gents-watch

Thanks for any help you can give.
I’m 14 btw and I like the design of both watches.
That’s the point, I wanted to know which of the two is better in the terms I gave.

rmahadevan answers:

Neither is “better”.

All a watch needs to do is tell the time. Everything over and above that is just for show.

Thomas asks…

Have a watch choice to make – Raymond Weil 5971 SPS 00995 or Longines L4.216.3.21.7. Which & why?

It would be a great help if the answer also provides insight whether either of the watches is a discontinued model. Also, which is a stronger ‘brand’?

rmahadevan answers:

A Longines would be a better choice cos as you put it, they are a ‘stronger brand’. I don’t know whether this are discontinued model. It depends where you are buying them from. Or you could just walk into any watchshop dealer and gave them the infor and they will tell you if these two watches are discontinued model. Hope this helps.

Sandy asks…

Has anyone else be scammed by rolex2u.com like I have? Can I get a refund? Any suggestions?

I have just received my replica tag heuer replica from www.rolex2u.com and believed I would receive a watch as per the picture. I have been very worried about purchasing a watch from such site, and giving over my credit card details….I should have listened to my inner voice……
I received the watch…in record time…..but it is NOTHING like the picture, it is very very obvious it is a fake. It is discoloured, the face is not the colour it is suppose to be, and to top it off…. the date does not work.
It is the biggest waste of $150…. I am very upset that I got conned…..
I would really like to try and get a refund?
Should I contact A current Affair, so they can warn other people not to be so gullable….

Donald asks…

Is It Possible To Get a Tag Heuer Watch Replica?

rmahadevan answers:

Yes, but with some the quality is very bad and illegal if they represent themselves as Tag Haurer originals..

Maria asks…

how to spot a replica tag heuer watch?

i found a watch many years ago. i finally after all these years put a battery in the watch and now i am wondering if it is authentic or not.

it says on the back that it is swiss made and has a serial or model number 964-013

i have read that the links should be two separate parts on the left and right, mine are not. also, the finish on the watch has worn off a bit on the inside and you can see some kind of base metal under neath. i am not very knowledgeable on these watches so i am not sure of what they are usually made of but is this normal for a tag heuer?

if anyone is knowledgeable on these watches and could tell me if it is most likely a real or fake or what i can look for as an indication as to whether its real or fake, i would appreciate it. thank you!

rmahadevan answers:

Post a few pictures.

Linda asks…

Where can I buy swiss made replica watches in New York City?

There are products online but I’d like to see the watch first. Canal street has a lot of japanese and cheap chinese replicas. Is there a store in Manhattan anyone knows of that does this and quality replica handbags?

rmahadevan answers:

Ive never heard of an actual store doing that, because it’s illegal and they’d get caught quick. Your best bet is to go on Canal street, or maybe even bowling green. (I’ve heard.) Once you get off at canal street keep walking down and you’ll see little stands with bags hanging overhead and in the back. So, yeah, g.luck.

Michael asks…

what city is the safest in brazil? and between sao paulo and rio de janeiro which is safer?

i really want to go to brazil soon but i hear that the crime rates are extremely high there.. so which city do u prefer?

rmahadevan answers:

Brazil is an incredible country – don’t be put off by stories of crime rates. Every city in the world suffers high crime in certain areas and both of these are the same.

The main tourist areas are safe in both cities but as with all cities you should take precautions such as:
Don’t venture to suburbs or shanty-town areas
Don’t carry valuables on show
Carry your stuff in plastic bags not expensive handbags
Be careful where you use credit cards

Personally, I would recommend Rio de Janeiro. It is a fabulous city in a beautiful setting with lots to do.

Sao Paulo is more of a business centre than a tourist centre.

Have a good trip!

Joseph asks…

Where is the best place in New York City to buy fake Coach or Chanel Handbags?

I want to know where the best place to buy Coach or Chanel handbags, and how much they cost generally, and if they last a long time. And, do the fake Coach and Chanel bags look exactly like the authentic ones, or not. I only want to buy a fake one if you can’t tell that it’s fake. Thanks.

rmahadevan answers:

Just walk through the streets and you will find thousands and they will be priced reasonably and they will look real on the outside, its just normally they have a diff. Lining so its not exactly the same but no one will know that except you!
