Any particular brands? sites you guys use? I have a couple of orders for things with integrated watches and I need something I can take the casing off easily and it still work.

Any Ideas?

My suggestion is to buy watch movements new from a watch supplier like Ofrei. You can get quartz or mechanical movements in various configurations, complexities, and price points. They are surprisingly inexpensive bought this way.
