I'm looking for a steel watch, more traditional in style for the budget mentioned above. Any ideas on a good inexpensive brand? Should I buy new or used to get better quality within my budget?

I'm interested in getting more training and/or employment with project management. Is it worth the money to get a certification? Does that open any doors? A local college has a 3 day program that runs about a $1000. Before I pay that kind of money, I want to confirm the ROI.
