Their new Jazzmaster Maestro is a nice alternative to the IWC Porto.

Scroll to the bottom to see a helpful classification for the multitude of brands.

High End Luxury - money is no object.
Luxury - The largest, most widely known class of luxury timepieces
Pseudo Luxury - When you want a better luxury watch, but don't want to spend so much
Basic Luxury - When you want something finer than average

You guys seem to really know your watches!
Do you have any idea where I'd get a nice leather minimalistic watch for a mates 30th, spending around €150-200 mark?!

Spending up to 200 quid you'd be well off looking at a Seiko, some lovely classic looking watches that are great value.

You might like the Junkers "Bauhaus" series.

The entry quartz models are 180 - 200 euro
