Cheapwatchlopnik - which one should I get?

I have found myself in possession of a $50 Amazon gift “card” (that is actually just a code in an email). I have a pretty decent Citizen watch with a stainless steel bracelet and black face. So I’m looking for something with a brown leather strap and light colored face.

I’ve narrowed it down to two watches that I kinda dig. Which should I get? I am open to suggestions but please keep within the following parameters:

  1. Available on Amazon for $100 or less
  2. Plain brown leather strap, no textured fake alligator-looking stuff
  3. White, silver or beige face
  4. Date functions and/or lights are desirable
  5. Not too weird of a design

Casio Edifice EF-324L-7A - $86.35

Pros: it’s square, and has a calendar with a month function which I like because I like my watch to tell me the date, without having to reset the date for months with less than 31 days. Looks vaguely like certain Tag Heuer Monaco variants.

Cons: More than $50

Timex Weekender T2P4959J - $38.46

Pros: Nice clean minimalistic style and you can very easily swap out straps for other ones. Indiglo. Under $50.

Cons: No date function . Makes a ticking noise you can hear if you’re in a quiet room.
