I don't know if it gets much more PMW than this one. I think I paid about $20, including shipping, for this one brand new off of eBay a couple years ago.
I have a very similar madras trouser that I wear quite frequently when the weather is nice. I've ordered two full madras suits from Epaulet over the past couple of years and I don't have a problem wearing the trousers or the jacket, but I've never been brave enough to wear everything all together at once as an actual suit.A madras trouser seems pretty easy to wear for me. I usually just tone it down with a solid white, off-white, or blue polo or button up shirt but with...
My suede blouson arrived over the weekend and thanks to our unseasonably mild winter lately, I've never taken it off. This thing is awesome. Even my wife, who is generally not a fan of leather or suede jackets, loves it on me. Now I need to invest in some spray on protector for it in case I get caught out in the rain. Any recommendations?
Like @dfwcowboy says it's going to be hard to beat the bang for the buck that you get from Seiko, even more so from watches from the Seiko 5 line like the one you are considering.I cannot think of something else in that price range with that particular style that will have anywhere near the same quality as that SNK.
I'm selling my Seiko SARB017 green faced "Alpinist". I bought the watch from Chino in 2013 or 2014 and it's still in great shape with just a couple of tiny scratches on the back from strap changes. 6R15 23J automatic movement (with hacking function) Sapphire crystal 38.0 mm diameter (w/o crown) 12.0 mm thick 20 mm lugs Includes original brown calf leather strap Also includes a Seiko stainless steel bracelet $320 shipped within CONUS. Contact me for price shipped to...
That would be a hard collection to beet.
The Borealis watches do look pretty great and always seem to get good reviews. I've been really tempted by their Estoril 300 on a few occasions but I'm really just going to waiting on the MKII Project 300.
I just picked up a second Helson Skindiver to add to my collection. I'll never shell out the money for a Blancpain Fity Fathoms and I've always been impressed with Helson's quality (though I know they had some snafus a few years back) so when they had a sale with a slight discount during the Chinese New Year, I jumped on it. I know a lot of folks don't like the homage or replica aspect of them, but I love mine. Helson family photo - Skindivers and Sharkmasters
I know the type you are talking about. Yours is probably a reference 8440 980.006 or 980.021. As far as I can tell, the primary differences are the 980.006 had the crown at 3:00, a slightly thinner case, and 200m water resistance as opposed to 1000m (not that I would ever need more than about 1 meter). The reference 8440 was eventually also available in a few different dial configurations, as an automatic or a quartz, and even a analog/digital version. The 980.023 (mine)...
Are we still playing the "What can you not believe is still available from the current sale" game? I was on my long Sunday morning walk yesterday morning in my Valstar waxed cotton parka when I got caught in a driving rain. It rained pretty hard on me for about an hour and this thing kept me bone dry! The jacket is relatively lightweight (but very warm thanks tot he lining) and it doesn't have the same waxy feel as a waxed Barbour or Filson so I always wondered how...
