Is anybody familiar with this brand of watches? They're popular here in NYC. Well my daughter wants one as a present for her birthday or communion (they're only weeks apart so we're having one party) Problem is I don't know if I want to/should spend $80 on a watch for an 8 yr old. What do you think?

  • I think its a lot of money, but if she's responsible and will take care of it then why not get it for her.

  • Too much for a watch for an 8 year old.

  • She is responsible and a very good student. She works really hard at school, but at the same time she is just turning 8. It's the only thing she wants and it would be two gifts in one. I just don't know if it's too much.

  • If you know she'll take absolutely great care of it, and since it'll be two gifts in one, I say go for it. My kids usually get about that much spent on them ($20 from one g-ma, $20 from the other, and about $40 from Mom and Dad) for birthdays. But let her know if she does break it, it will not be replaced. I wouldn't suggest letting her wear it to school, because you know how other children can be (not saying all children).
